The difference between decision and choice is a difference between surviving and thriving.
Decision is a function of our reason and calculation, where choice is a function of who you are.
Founder of ALYKA Solutions & Executive Business Leadership Coach
I am Conscious Leadership Coach, Personal and Organizational Transformation Advocate, a Provocateur, Adventurist, Global Citizen, Traveler and Himalayan Climber. I believe in irresistible power of choice and living life congruent with our highest values.
I Challenge the Impossible by transforming organizations one person at a time to live, work and lead with clarity, on purpose and with passion.
I base my approach on an interactive coaching approach by getting to the root causes of why leaders act the way they do by exploring individual values, motives and preferences as well as how they satisfy their career and personal needs. Recognition of “below the surface” thoughts, feelings, assumptions, “dark sides” of personality and beliefs constitute a prerequisite of any behavioral change—one too often neglected in many leadership development programs. While some of the personality preferences take time to “stretch”, people can change the way they see the world and start communicating from their highest values. Knowing yourself and people around—strengths, weaknesses and reasoning characteristic to elevate the chance of our success.
I have a Master’s Degree in Special Education, several life coaching certifications along with personality, leadership and team assessment certifications and I bring over a decade of expertise in human capital transformation. I am professionally trained and exceptionally positioned to provide strategic support to functional leaders on people initiatives by incorporating coaching into the Complete Human Capital Management Strategy which in return reinforces effectiveness of HR as a business transformer, strategic partner and leadership incubator in enabling organizations.
Most of my clients are C-Level executives and senior management executives of closely held or private equity portfolio mid-corporate-sized and growing businesses in various sectors and their teams.
I focus on developing the Organizational RoadMAP to CHANGE that reinforces the effectiveness of an Organization as a Business Transformer, Strategic Partner and Leadership Incubator, leading the way in people initiatives while delivering bottom-line results. In addition, I design and execute Recruitment and Selection Strategies aligned with Corporate Culture, Employee Retention Programs through promoting personal development as well as team training programs to educate every person how to use coaching principles in their day–to-day communication for personal and team effectives.
As a Neuro Change Solutions Consultant, I use neuroscience to build and capitalize on anatomy of change to deliver sustainable results on the personal, team and organizational level.
I contribute as a pro-bono coach to The Humanitarian Coaching Network (HCN) to support the development and wellbeing of humanitarian staff globally. Recently, I have been appointed to the Board of the Basa Village Foundation and I raise funds (including sponsorship campaigns of Kasia’s marathons and mountain climbing) to support health, education and well- being initiatives for the Nepalese people.
“As a Coach Kasia has the magical ability to make you ask yourself the questions that she feels should be addressed without her saying much than Why, How and When. Without you knowing it you have formed a goal and a plan all within a single session. Kasia is ever the diligent listener and has a true gift to lead conversations into a positive place where action and results will be found.”Christine Williams; Senior Finance Professional
A Tale of Transformation…
Born in Poland. A child of the Communist political system. Perfect mold to remain unchanged, not to stand out, and to follow and to obey. Well controlled and manipulated. Although I did not support the socialist philosophy, it gave me a strong foundation to whom I have become. The circumstances thought me that you cannot ever forget where you came from. At the same time, what it did not teach me, was how to be bold and creative; how to break the chains that strangle you and clip your wings and even though you know you can fly, yet never have the courage to take off.
Through a chain of events which led me first to Canada and then over to the US over the course of the last twelve years, I ended traveling to Nepal where I climbed Ganesh Himal Summit at over 20,000 feet. During this unique experience, I was smoothly and quite naturally drifting away from what I left behind. For the very first time in years, I could finally breathe to my own rhythm. With each footstep, I was submersing deeper and deeper into my own existence, opening the doors to the forbidden grounds. Unfamiliar feelings began to show up, the need to express myself emerged, and questions were bursting up — and somehow, I had the answers. I was blessed to receive the ultimate gift of being seen for whom I truly was and being noticed as such. The transformation from a runway model was well underway … the “girly girl” was dropping the coat of pretense that covered her from top to bottom, starting to see her true self for the very first time in years. And it all felt liberating and naturally exuberating!
“A lasting transformation is only possible from deep within; repetitively ripping and stripping the layers of absurd and borrowed assumptions, limiting beliefs and debilitating fears”. Kasia Jamroz
“Don’t’ miss out on Life because of Fear”
Today I know, that the only limits that exist are self-imposed. Everything is possible. Therefore, mostly what we get out of life is how much distress we are willing to handle to get through. Because we want the reward not the struggle, we want the result not the process. We are in love with victory not the battle.
Success and failure don’t exist without each other. Failure and struggle clarify the meaning of what we truly want, because each letdown takes us deeper to the core of our own humanness. It puts us through harshness and sharp edges of the circumstances. It teaches us to withhold and to withstand the uneasiness that comes with them but only when we are truly dedicated to the desired outcome and prepared to reinvent ourselves on the path to meet our true desires.
I like to think of life as of a voyage without destination yet with many possible directions. Becoming a traveler focused on the journey itself – passionately, intensely and fearlessly. Acknowledging the points of arrival as they come along with joy, pleasure and reflection…
