What I do
I help them with questions such as how to -----keep their business in Russia, how to adapt to life in a new country, integrate themselves into a community, become a legal resident, and, as a whole, how to grow----within their new reality.
My name is Alisa and I support entrepreneurs, freelancers, and those in search of their place in the world.
I work under the standards of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

Not long ago I called myself a business coach. With my clients, I used to focus on metrics such as money, creating stable systems [teams, projects, products etc.] or attaining a certain emotional state or role. Now, the world has changed, and the new priority is stability, a search for inner peace and adapting to a new environment. This brings my business coaching to a wider range of questions about life and your role in it.

What makes coaching valuable and relevant today is that it gives you time and a safe space for exploring topics which are full of strong emotions and fears. It's a time and space for remembering your needs; for returning optimism and encouragement to yourself and finding your inner pillars of strength.
About me and coaching
I came out of the rational environment of IT, so I am a devotee of scientific approaches and principles. At the same time, I'm all for adventure and experimenting, and exploring emotional states, because I strongly believe that the thrill of life, drive and results come from interest and a sense of purpose.

In 2021, I was all for broadening my views and diving deeper into the existential questions of life. As for 2022, I'm focused more on inner pillars and creating stability in my world.
I help them with questions such as how to keep their business in Russia, how to adapt to life in a new country, integrate themselves into a community, become a legal resident, and, as a whole, how to grow within their new reality.
You decide what coaching will involve, whether that is overachieving and efficiency, or reflection and understanding of yourself. My approach involves comfortable, gentle changes.
Notes
What coaching is
Coaching is your deliberate decision to devote time and attention to some issue in your life. It definitely isn't some one-time magical pill, but a systematic tool for lasting and visible changes.
A coaching session is a partnership in open-ended questions with neither teachers, nor advice. It helps you to keep going no matter what: through doubts, fears, and a lack of motivation in search of purpose and zest for life.

A session is a safe space where you can thoroughly consider your decisions, look at your situation from a number of angles, analyze your energy and resources and receive direct feedback. It's also an opportunity to regularly devote time to important and new ideas that often get lost in our daily routine. It's a chance to hear and recognize your needs and come up with ways to meet them; an opportunity to fall in love with your strengths and use them for steady and consistent growth.
Topics in sessions are not restricted to my professional expertise. I'm especially interested in attention, focus and habit management, which is a meta skill that can be applied to all areas of life. You can bring up your thoughts about both work and your personal life.
It's not consultations
We work within the present and the future, but not the past. Coaching helps to manage your energy and motivation, by working with emotional and physical states. I will point out to you anything I feel should be spoken about with a therapist.
It's not psychotherapy
Even if I have a similar experience, I remain neutral to help you find solutions that work best for you. Still, the personality of a coach and her experience influence a session: they help to see your blind spots and ask specific questions about them. That's why my main interest is focus and habits.
It's not mentoring
Requests
What your request may look like
"I've left Russia and I don't know what to do next. I'd like you to help me understand what I want to build and where I want to do that. Where to live, how to adapt to this new reality, who to communicate with about this?"
"I've stayed in Russia, and I don't know what to do next. I'd like you to help me understand how to work, live, and express myself in this new reality"
"It's important for me to define a driving vision of my future: where I'm going to be in the next 5-10 years, what I'm going to be doing, who's going to be with me, what I'm going to be like. Answers to these questions will help me make decisions and changes here and now that will bring me to point B."
"My new role gives me more responsibility and a larger scale of influence. I'd like to understand what I should focus on, how to achieve results not as an expert but as a manager, and not to get lost in minor tasks"
"I'm observing the world around me, learning about spiral dynamics, and realizing that I want to grow to higher levels in what I am doing, to develop my team and the people around me. I need to understand how exactly I can do that"
Notes
Examples of topics
Оk
Values: what's important and what's irrelevant for me? what should be my point of reference, what is my target metric?
Blockers and boosters: what helps me to achieve my goal and what doesn't?
Mental capacity, ability to integrate, personal growth: what is my perfect balance of changes and routine?
How does my focus work: what influences it and what distracts me? How do I create better conditions for efficiency?
What lies behind defocusing
Destructive patterns and unconscious drivers
Stable focus: in the long-run, the coherence of goals
How exactly do I come to decisions on what projects to take or skip in my life: defining the criteria of projects, processes and goals. A pattern of being impulsive.
How to stand my ground and maintain boundaries in an polite way without being a moron about it.
My background
Gestalt therapy came into my life in 2019. Since then, I've ----moved to another country, changed my career path, the people around me and my attitude towards my life ----and myself. I've learnt things that I hadn't noticed in myself over 28 years.
Coaching and psychology are what I live by; it lights me up, fascinates me, helps me and people around me to become sincere and effective in relating with ourselves and the whole world.
It struck me so much that I passionately began looking around and inside me for what clicks — through experiments and iterations I've created relationships, a lifestyle, environment, and career that I sincerely call my dream life. That's what I openly and honestly talk about on my Instagram, without any instructions on how to properly live your life.

In 3 or 5 years I see myself growing in the impact business sphere, so if you're interested in it too, you're doubly welcome here.

Results of sessions
The expectations
Defining important things and saying no to everything else becomes natural. It gets easier to make decisions, to consciously choose your top-priority for this period of life. It's a chance to clearly feel what you want your future to be and become more confident about your choice because focus is about choice and the ability to say no to other things. It then becomes easier to be realistic about deadlines and your potential.
You receive a feeling of being focused and confident about your decisions and yourself
1
You get better at knowing your needs, your emotions and feelings. You learn how to deal with fears and doubts, jealousy, anxiety and FOMO, and to step into the position of an observer. You can create higher-level decisions on how to choose experiences for yourself or leave situations that make you feel bad. You become confident about the fact that you have a right to do it.
You develop self-awareness about what you feel
2
You start noticing other strategies in people and to see your inefficiencies and those of others. You will change your motivation from "moving away" to "moving towards". You'll learn to work with responsibility: what you can control and where the boundaries are of what you can't. You'll attain an understanding that you can cultivate the qualities you want in yourself.
You improve your thinking strategies
3
Getting feedback and analyzing your strengths and weaknesses help you to expel compulsive thoughts about yourself and understand which of them are helpful for you and which are not; to get a more objective view. You receive a space for accepting yourself where you can organize your ideas and thoughts. You realize what it means for you to live your life fully and to feel ok with that, even if you are not in the place you want to be yet.
You feel more stable and comfortable about yourself

My hypothesis was that focusing would speed up the overall development of our analytical department: I'd work more effectively, the results would be better and the emotional state would be more comfortable. To jump ahead a bit — that's exactly what happened.

In the beginning we defined what focus means for me and came up with the topics that would help me move closer to it. I wanted to better explore switching from an expert to a manager's role, to identify the ideal result for my department in 6 months, define roles and processes in my team and find blockers: the skills, views, and unnecessary actions that slow me down.

As a result:

1. I evaluated the impact of tasks that I accept today on my entire career. This added value to my purpose, a feeling of progress, and confidence in what I'm planning to do.

2. It's easier for me to keep focused now as I've reconsidered and fixed the boundaries of my responsibility and reorganized the planning system. I feel more control now, I enjoy work more and deal with difficult situations with a sense of humor. I accomplish more.

3. I began to understand my manager role better and to feel what exactly I should develop the next year.

4. I've improved communication and transparency in business relationships with stakeholders and my team: specified and realized with whom, in what way and when we should involve in overall vision planning for 6 months in order to take into account opinions and interests of different parties and to manage expectations. On an individual level, I understood the value of conflict and discomfort and how to use it; how to deal with a difficult situation so that it would help my team move to a new level.

5. I've paid more attention to hiring: the process, approaches, the profile of a 'suitable' candidate.

6. Among specific changes, I'd like to emphasize a grade-up and a 15% raise in my income.

All in all, we planned 6 sessions and I already felt success on the 5th session, so we conducted a reflection of the results. To stop and point out the changes was also useful.

Our next task is bigger: it's about my whole life context, not only about work. I decided I want to have a look at a broader perspective after feeling a massive boost from coaching in the sphere we dealt already with.
The question that I brought to sessions with Alisa was about focusing on my professional expertise.

Физический переезд в Польшу на новый рынок с большим потенциалом, в новую среду; решение и шаги на переориентацию бизнеса на англоязычный сегмент; готовность рассматривать всю палитру возможностей заработка — от консультаций до найма, что меня поддержало, но всё же я остался на пути предпринимательства.

Мы работали по трём направлениям — финансовое мышление; поиск конструктивных и неконструктивных стратегий в том, что делаю; искали точки в бизнесе, улучшения в которых могли дать рост.

Больше всего пользы почувствовал от того, что в результате в период изменений у меня был план по финансовым бекапам и «разобранный» вопрос с эмоциональными качелями. Вот эти два момента дали устойчивости и уверенности, сохранили энергию для быстрого движения.

На более глубоком уровне у меня появилось более понимание своего поведения через наблюдения; более спокойное отношение к вещам, на которые не могу влиять и к деньгам; внутренний баланс, который помогает продуктивно проводить время и не выгорать. Почувствовал ценность нужных вопросов, через которые можно понять себя и других.

А больше всего кайфа было в том, что Алиса была сильно вовлечена в свою часть, и в том, что у нас произошел хороший контакт на уровне ценностей.
Наши 11 встреч с Алисой случились в те 4 месяца, за который у меня произошло много изменений.
