GROW STRONG AND SPREAD YOUR WINGS!
I support people seeking to get unstuck and move forward!
Do you have an idea for a business or a new career? Or maybe you want to operate effectively in different areas of your life, but unfortunately you don’t know how to start nor what steps to take. Or maybe you have too many ideas and you don’t know which one to choose. Finally, perhaps you feel that you are ready for a change, but something still stops you!
For some time, you have been thinking about a career transition or a promotion. Are you ready for a lifestyle change? Do you have concerns about this? Do you know which direction to go? Or maybe you plan to introduce changes in your company, e.g., a different work culture, or increased employee involvement?
Have you been promoted, but now you’re facing new challenges? Do you want to become a real leader for your people? Do you want to be more effective at work and at home? To communicate better, manage conflicts effectively, build lasting relationships, and perform in public? Do you want your business to grow in strength and attract more customers?
Do any of these situations concern you? If so, you have come to the right place!
I will help you to spread your wings and reach your goals.
The words of Stephen Covey are my motto: If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster?
I have moved my ladder for many long years from wall to wall, gaining skills, accumulating knowledge and valuable – not always pleasant – experiences. Finally, I have found the right wall. I am sure that each rung I step up to gets me closer to my goal.
My message to everyone I work with is: do not be afraid to move your ladder! After all, as the Japanese saying goes, “No matter how long you have travelled in the wrong direction, you can always turn around.”
After years of travelling along winding paths, I want to help others straighten theirs more quickly. In time, I have understood what the key element of effective action are and I wish to share this knowledge with others.

Klaudia Kalazna, PhD – a strategist and entrepreneur with a PhD in humanities, a trainer, a business advisor, a career coach, and a psychology and brain science enthusiast – helps in developing personal effectiveness based on practicing mindfulness, developing willpower, and discovering one’s own values and true strengths.
On an everyday basis, she supports people who seek change in the scope of a career or business so that they can spread their wings, set their navigation correctly, and fly in the right direction. She combines her broad theoretical knowledge and business experience with a passion for unlocking and enhancing human potential.
Klaudia is a careful observer of human behaviour who is addicted to reading scientific research and discovering the mysteries of the human personality. She is a supporter of applying science in practice, transferring theories into the real world, and turning knowledge into action. She always tests methods and techniques on herself first, only using them with others once she is convinced of their efficacy.
She uses a broad variety of coaching tools, mindfulness training techniques, and knowledge within the field of positive neuroplasticity in her work.
Klaudia is a former scientist, and in the meantime she has become an expert in marketing and international trade in Irish companies from aviation, to food, to education industries. She is currently an entrepreneur, coach, trainer, and lecturer.
She embodies a combination of three natures: a researcher, an entrepreneur, and an artist. It was only when she allowed all of them to “make themselves heard” that she felt professionally and privately fulfilled.
I hold a PhD in Humanities, an MSc in International Marketing Practices, and an MA in Political Science. In addition, I have completed numerous courses and hold certifications in management, coaching, behavioural analysis, conflict management, and team building. I am also a member of the International Coach Federation and follow professional standards set by the ICF and adhere to its code of ethics.

In short: I help people to move forward!
I am constantly learning, gaining new experiences, and trying new methods and techniques, owing to which I systematically improve my professional practise. The name of my consulting and training company, GroWings, best reflects what I can do for you. I help others grow in strength and spread their wings! All of this is owing to the fact that I constantly improve my workshop and appropriately select the tools. “Grow” means “to advance”. GROW is also the name of a popular coaching model: G ‑ Goals, R ‑ Reality, O ‑ Options; W ‑ Will. “Wings” – I help to spread them, I also support you so that you do not let others (e.g. your boss, co-workers, difficult customers) clip them.
What helps me very much in my work are the knowledge and skills that I have gained during my studies in Ireland and in Poland, while training, attending conferences, and during the research related to my PhD studies (regarding the international trade of services). My customers emphasize that, apart from knowledge and experience, my advantage is an unusual intuition which very often turns out to be indispensable in the process of implementing changes.
I offer my customers authorial programs comprised of a skillful combination, in correct proportions, of coaching, training, and mentoring or consulting (e.g., training – coaching programmes).
