Dragos Georgita, Director of Engineering, Campus Manager, Adobe Romania

I had the pleasure to work with Ioan Nicut as a coach starting the end of 2011 and most of 2012; he helped with facilitating my transition to a more expanded role as part of the Adobe Romania office.
Some areas that we worked on with measurable positive results: presentation skills, building self-confidence, surfacing & addressing issues in a timely manner
On top of this, I think our interactions helped me had a better understanding of my own motivations and triggers.
I really appreciate the fact that he measured my progress using a 360 tool.

Ana Szilagyi, Head of Human Resources, Banca Comerciala Carpatica

Ioan is one of the most open and inspiring persons I’ve met. Hardly had I met him when I felt like I’d known him for years!

I believe that’s a valuable asset for a coach as it makes you feel very secure and gives you the drive to start exploring universes near a friend :-)

Ioan helped me rediscover how important is it for me to be in integrity with my very Self! Thank you!

Bogdan Ivănescu, Sales Manager Consumer Romania and Bulgaria, Goodyear Dunlop

He helped me most in understanding and accepting the feedback that I got from my 360 surveys. He did that striking a good balance between sensitivity and openness.

In the entire coaching process, I felt that the program was about me, helping me to understand and make choices that transformed me into a better person both at work and at home.

I got very positive feedback at the end of the program from my colleagues and a lot of acknowledgments of the progress that I have made.

Thank you, Ioan, for being such a kind and honest person and hope we’ll have the opportunity to work again in the near future.

Roxana Radu, Talent Acquisition Specialist at Siemens Romania

Ioan is a gifted coach and trainer. His calming personality makes you feel comfortable and he is always encouraging and positive.

I met Ioan at one of his training, “Manager as a Coach”. The training was very inspirational, bringing lots of ideas and solutions for day to day professional issues. Interesting case studies, learning from experience, and being fully practice-oriented.

Andreea – Larisa Loncea, Microsoft Exchange Support Engineer at Microsoft

Thank you so much for delivering this amazing workshop, which actually changed my life as well. Even though I am familiar with coaching, what you brought on the table finally gave me the answer to the question:

How to provide feedback about my feelings, emotions, situations without making others feel bad. Now they will be able to understand my position in front of their facts, reactions.

I could say I am close to being complete now as a person in relationship with the others and became also a better coach.

I would recommend the workshop ‘Business Relationships and Conflict Management` to everyone that wants to learn how to provide real feedback according to their feelings, emotions without making the person who receives it feel bad but to really understand the situation from both perspectives.

I thank you again for this opportunity and I am looking forward to working and collaborate with you in the future.

Emilia Constantinescu, HR Manager at ICEPRONAV ENGINEERING

Coaching cu Ioan este cel mai frumos cadou în dezvoltarea mea profesionala (și personală).

Ioan deține puterea cuvintelor și a întrebărilor puse cu dibăcie și habar nu aveam cat de profund pot ajunge acestea în sufletul și mintea mea, ori cat de revelatoare sunt momentele de reflecție și tăcere, astfel încât sa provoace atâtea stări, schimbări, perspective noi și sentimente puternice.

Am ieșit din relația de coaching știind ca sunt un om mai bun în toate rolurile din viata mea, cu multa încredere și entuziasm, dar și cu un prieten minunat!

Mulțumesc Ioan!

Cristian-Dorel Lacatus, Associate Lecturer at Universitatea Bucuresti – Facultatea de Psihologie

Ioan este un profesionist desăvârșit, care stăpânește arta de a construi spațiul de dialog, chiar și atunci când participanții sunt la prima experienta de coaching de echipa.

Este un fin cunoscător al psihologiei oamenilor de vânzări și știe sa pătrundă și cele mai puternice blocaje anti productivitate.

Antrenamentele cu Ioan duc aduc rezultate la care de cele mai multe ori n-ai curaj sa te gândești.

Mulțumesc pentru sprijinul acordat. Sănătate și voie buna!

Miruna-Georgia Grama, T & CI Project Manager at Societe Generale, European Business Service

Ioan is an excellent professional that gets close to people‛s objectives and makes them more aware of their inner capabilities.


I had the privilege to be in coaching with Ioan last year, and I must say that this program and the coach helped me very much as a manager and also in my private life.

I am recommending Ioan as the coach to anyone who wants to make more of himself/herself in this life.

Ioan can open any locked door within your soul. He can prepare you for a flight with your own wings over deep valleys or wide plains, up to high mountains in your life geography. You just need to listen and fight for your cause.

Try it and enjoy the journey.
