COACHING

Working with Maciek – as clichéd as it may sound – helped me to understand myself better and to separate what I want and need from what others expect from me. It also helped me to realize that I am pretty much burned-out professionally and that it’s high time to give up perfectionism and “can do” attitude at work in favor of harmony between different spheres of life. At the same time – apart from the “philosophical” threads – I can always count on concrete, matter-of-fact advice on management issues, negotiations or when making a decision. It is important to me that Maciek is a warm, positive person – this builds trust and a good dynamic in the relationship.

I found our Mindfulness-Based Development Academy for Leaders program to be very practical AND relevant to my needs in the area of mindfulness development. One of the things that surprised me during the program was how critically important deep listening skills are for building trust and collaboration with my employees and bosses Thank you for such an effectively “mindful” program.

Maciek, thank you for a very valuable coaching program tailored to my needs and challenges. You definitely inspired me to act with more creativity and helped me to activate many of my hidden talents that I was not aware of before. Your way of conducting development sessions combines complete professionalism with great sensitivity to the other person. Our program also had an immediate, positive impact on the business results produced by my team.

The results of your organizational analysis allowed us to quickly structure development workshops with our sales executives and focus on finding answers to our challenges instead of wasting time and energy on superficial and emotional discussions about past events

I participated in business coaching workshops conducted by Mr. Maciej Szturmowicz. The workshop was conducted very professionally in terms of working out real solutions that needed to be implemented at the level of regional sales management. As a result of adopting the agreed solutions, the aspect of communication between team members has significantly improved. During the workshop, specific rules were developed for sharing best practices emerging in subordinate sales teams and for resolving problem situations between coworkers. I recommend workshops with Mr. Maciej.

Meetings, sessions led by you, both for my team, but also workshops in which I participated, always bring something new. In an unforced way, so involuntarily, each time, I discover something new about myself and the surrounding reality. This invites me to work independently and is a constant source of inspiration, especially in the area of strategic management and team motivation. You always leave me with new tools, techniques that pay off later and that I can use further. And this is what I thank you for.

MAGDALENA CIECIERSKA

During the workshop, I was able to look at my emotions and what was happening to me at the moment. It’s obvious but being able to look at it from a perspective makes you better able to analyze it and realize how individual emotions affect your decisions. Just being aware of it is very important. It was also crucial for me to see how my reactions can affect my immediate environment.

Hi Maciej, I wanted to thank you for an inspiring and just plain cool workshop. I think you managed to bring a ‘new quality’ in thinking about a conversation, even on a professional level. And that moment of self-reflection – was absolutely priceless. I wish you further successful projects and have a nice day!

Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in the workshop “spotting opportunities in difficult situations” and for providing a wonderful experience. I’m fascinated by the way the meeting was conducted which, despite being fully virtual, made it possible to build a good, positive atmosphere and full involvement of participants. It was very nice; the possibility to break away from reality for a while and look at my own problem from four perspectives broadened my horizons and allowed me to think about new solutions: a super tool. Thank you very much for today’s workshop and for sending the summary.

Super workshop, short and to the point, in an online version where you can take part in it from the comfort of your home. The format of the exercises, without having to talk about your difficult experiences, and the exercise offered, really made me look at the situation differently, which I previously saw only in dark colors… now I can see its advantages. I highly recommend this class!

I specifically waited a few days to complete the survey in order to test what I learned about myself. The workshop was very valuable for me – I liked the small group of participants, so everyone could speak freely and you had time for each of us. The techniques opened up a few things for me, and I’m slowly starting to implement them in my daily life, slightly modified, because it’s hard for me to follow a recipe 100% naturally. It was also valuable to listen to the opinions of other participants, who had their own, often quite different, feelings about each of the exercises. And of course, the preparation itself – the presentation on a high level! By the way, at some moments, I felt that especially for us, (participants) you deviate slightly from the topic, which makes it more difficult for you, but you satisfy the needs of the moment!

I really liked the exercise about the four levels of consciousness – it gave me a new tool to use while coaching – thanks! The workshop was perfect – introductions, time for exercises, summaries – I feel that Maciek could easily take me on many journeys through emotions and difficult situations.

Maciej has a natural ability to create the perfect working environment. The space he invited me into during the session was, in my opinion, the result of a combination and balance of “masculine” and “feminine” energies. “Masculine” decisiveness, direction and support and “feminine” soft flexibility, empathy and intuition. Maciej is able to move between these energies and use both of them. It is very easy and safe to work in the environment he creates.

CLIENT
COACHING

I started working with Maciek at a turning point in my career related to my promotion to manager.

My innate perfectionism (sometimes beneficial in a specialist position), instead of helping, suddenly started to overwhelm me. I was so used to working and focusing on one specific task that I was completely unable to cope with more complex challenges. Internal anxiety was accumulating in me, the amount of work to be done was terrifying, and I was wasting time and energy on doing unnecessary things.

Maciek and I quickly found a common language, and most of my problems were correctly diagnosed during the first session. The few meetings we had allowed me to “clear my head” and look at my challenges from a different perspective. The suggestion to introduce the Kaizen philosophy (i.e., continuous improvement through small steps) into my life, turned out to be crucial.

Those few meetings made me gain enormous self-confidence and regain inner peace. I learned how to distinguish the high quality of work from the perfectionism that prevented me from finishing a job (as they sometimes they say, “better done than perfect”).

I recommend Maciek as a versatile coach!

I sincerely recommend Scaleup. I have gained a great deal from their relaxation techniques. They are tailored to living in our crazy world and provide real help to improve the everyday quality of life. Thank you very much.

SZYMON MARCIŃSKI

Through the workshop, I learned how to take care of myself in the most stressful moments of life. I gained tools that will make facing bigger challenges much healthier. The key thing is that from now on, stress is much easier to treat simply as information from my body because I now know how to deal with it.

Thanks to the Scaleup exercises, my clients outside of the therapy room are able to successfully reduce stress and tension, calm their racing thoughts, find answers to important questions and even alleviate physical pain.

I had sessions with Maciek at a time in my life when, after many years of very active work, I started to feel elements of professional burnout and a lack of inner motivation. The conversations we had helped me a lot to change my approach to problems that I had previously perceived as decision points or binary alternatives. Maciek has a very professional “toolkit” that doesn’t impose suggestions or answers, but he was able to show me how to change the way I think about life, my goals and private joys in a relatively simple way. He didn’t suggest solutions and didn’t focus on a closed set of “problems” but rather taught me how to think and approach life in a way that allows you to understand yourself better and draw conclusions not only about professional issues but rather a holistic approach to understanding your true motivations. It was a super experience and some of the most helpful conversations I’ve had in my life.
