A project is what moves you to happiness

Barbara Chiavarino

This is my motto.

Why talking about projects and happiness together?
That’s because projects do translate a vision into reality.

Carrying out our projects moves our best energies, makes us feel good, feel happy and, not surprisingly, “fulfilled”.
A project that is really such (not just an intention or the mere performance of a task) changes reality – and its effects continue and become the basis for new projects.

We can live, make business, administer a territory trying to cope with what happens. In doing so, we re-act outside, becoming prey of urgencies of the events, often feeling anxiety and insecurity, even when things are going well.

We can live, make business, administer with all determination, focusing all our energy on a specific aspect. Most likely we will succeed, but at the cost of sacrificing every other aspect of life, or risking burn out and create stress for ourselves and for the others. At the end, that brings to a steep fall in productivity and loss of the best resources. An effective strategy, maybe rewarding in the short term, unsustainable in the medium, destructive in the long term.

Projects lead us to be intentional, effective, consistent, flexible in life and business, able to make the best of it and of people around us.

I call myself “Project Player”. It means someone who can enhance your project design and management abilities, from vision to achievement, in a partnership relation.

That’s the way we work: people who collaborate with me and I.

I was born in Turin (Italy) in a late September Saturday evening in 1970, curious like Odysseus and voracious of images like a digital camera.

I’ve spent 20 and more years practicing mediation between culture and economics.

I’ve always been irresistibly attracted to the “elsewhere” (whether of place, relationship or thought) and love for my city placed between the beds of the rivers.

I have the privilege to work both at the local and international level.

I do believe that at the heart of every innovation there are the talents of people, and that talents are the result of places, relationships, and personal experiences.

I have a liberal arts degree, a master’s degree in Business Communication, and specialized in-depth on a holistic approach to organizational systems, enriched with Indology studies and their application in an entrepreneurial context for a wellness leadership model. I am a qualified trainer and leadership coach, with a thorough competence in project design and extensive knowledge of financing instruments.

My talent is “from vision to action”: helping people, organizations, administrations, to define strategies and implement them, by adopting a twofold perspective: the gender approach and the European and international vision.
