I starded working in the Legal area, lather I was involved in management , development and training in companies. Live for a long time in an environment with the right amount of competitiveness , it gave me the right push , making me grow , until I assumed responsibility ever-growning .Thanks to my design and positive approach I have achieved leadership roles in Manageritalia, an association representing the high professionalism of the Tertiary, and Prioritalia, association for the civil commitment of the managerial community.
Currently I teach at public and private Universities in the Master of High specialization management, and in projects of mentorship and tutoring for the younger generations.
Most useful skills to orient myself in the complexity of the “knowledge society” were: curiosity and willingness to learn; the ability to get involved, the courage and the passion that helped me to manage the stages of change; to recognize and appreciate the good teachers; aim to live in contexts of learning, develop personal and professional relationships of quality.
Today I think I gained a good flexibility and the ability to motivate and engage people, giving them a vision and example.
