More than anything else, Bea is passionate about helping others find their way toward consciously creating more fulfilling relationships, work, and life experiences.
In her free time she loves exploring the best restaurants around the globe and identifying the enneagram types of actors in new movies.
With The 9 Types of Leadership: Mastering the Art of People in the 21st Century Workplace, Bea has introduced an excellent book f￼￼or all leaders to raise their consciousness and emotional intelligence. It will help you recognize your strengths, habits and motives and have a better understanding of the same for people around you. I love that it makes the point that we all have unique gifts and there isn’t one “best” approach.
