A method, philosophy, and a way of living. 

The word ZIVA has its roots in more than one language. This particular understanding is derived from Shona, the beautiful language of one of my closest friends and sister. It means perceiving or understanding the truth, having a clear or distinct perception or apprehension of something, to understand or comprehend clearly and fully. It means to be conscious of perceiving truly. ZIVA also has broader significance and beautiful meanings in other languages, such as radiance, brilliance, and light. 

Živa also means, derived from the from Slavic feminine adjective *živa meaning “alive, live, living“. Živa was also the goddess of  fertility and love of the Polabian Slavs.

The Ziva Way philosophy is a fusion between your mindset and your emotions, leading to clear actions. It provides a direction for everyone that is on the journey of change and impact. And enables you to create more clarity in your life and career.

More so, the Ziva Way method is a science and evidence-based, step-by-step approach that will help you uncover your full potential and step into your power with confidence. It connects your values, the work you do, and the impact you want to create through effective exercises. By doing this it allows you to start focusing on the essential parts of your life, set boundaries and develop the skills needed to not just create success based on your own terms. And even more so, develop a deep seated feeling of satisfaction and bring back joy into your work and life.

1. Understanding what is holding you back. 

We will go back into the past to understand the key memories that are holding us back. We will be looking for negative stories that you are carrying within you and changing your perspective. Past negative stories are forming negative assumptions of the future and creating unnecessary fear (90% of our worries never turn into reality, but we continually scan the environment for possible traps. This is not just a waste of our time and energy, but it also holds us back from achieving and creating the life we want). Let’s change the way you perceive fear. 


Fear is not just the result of past experiences. It is the feeling that overcomes us when we don’t know how the future will look. Hence when the unknown can’t be rationalized. Understand and acknowledge your fear and do it anyways is the motto of this step. We will work through exercises that will make you more confident in stepping into the unknown. This will enable you to dismantle your emotions and learn which have been imposed on you by society. This will allow you to feel your power and build grit.

3. Understand your emotions and your emotional make-up

Not everything that you feel represents your emotions. Therefore, you must learn to understand emotions as a compass rather than an individual necessity or obstacle. Learn to connect with your emotions and acknowledge them as the superpower they are. In addition, learn to detect when you are running low on energy and set boundaries that will allow you to stay healthy and motivated. Your emotional balance is key to success in your life. It will enable you to achieve your goals, inspire others and be the best version of yourself. Not only will this allow you to push boundaries, but also overcome fear and stay focused. In essence, this will help you prevent burnout, build more robust and better relationships, be innovative, and be satisfied with your professional performance.

Your emotions are the connection between your inner and outer world. Understanding them personally and socially is a crucial differentiator on your path as a leader and change-maker.


Understanding what your heart desires and what motivates you is an essential step towards creating a framework/plan/structure that will allow you to know what you need to do to make it come true. Successful people know what they are working towards. They have a vision and an understanding of their core values. Creating a clear game plan to make your dreams come true is an essential step towards making them a reality. As a result, all it takes is to allow yourself to remember why you started this journey in the first place.

5. Clarify Your Why, Values and Norms

What is important to you? What are the things that you disagree with? Who are the people that share your vision and mission?

6. Self-empowerment & development, mindset – positive psychology. 

Get the tools that you need to support change in your personal and professional life. Learn how to strengthen your mind and body to stay healthy, productive, and satisfied. This part is about brain plasticity and understanding how you can change your mind to create the things you want in your life. It is about the power of your brain!

7. Inspiration and joy

Identify sources of inspiration to stay on track. Also, find the right platforms to learn more, be connected, and stay motivated. After all, life is about joy and fulfillment. 

A look into how I work with you:

As a Social Psychologist turned Impact Strategist, I focus on emotions, positive psychology, leadership, and sustainable impact coaching. I essence, I use the Ziva Way method to unpack the unique elements required to become a leader of influence living a fulfilled life. Ultimately you can’t create change and impact if you don’t ensure a sustainable strategy for yourself. After all, you are the source of creativity and power. Henceforth, if you run out of energy or balance, you won’t be the best version of yourself and, therefore, most effective. All in all, the ZIVA way will give you the tools you need to find your own path and creating relevance in life, business, and society. Start the journey of becoming unapologetically confident, building a positive mindset, and transform yourself into what you envision by taking impactful actions. 

I know how it feels to be held back by fear, an unclear or lost vision, and a lack of strategy. Being tired of moving things forward, feeling at times like fighting against windmills, and feeling alone. The Ziva Way method is designed to help you find your path, create relevance in life, and understand your bigger goals while living up to your full potential and incorporating personal development methods.

You’ve waited long enough for this moment to come, and you know that the time has arrived for you to make a change in your life and make a difference. Let’s create the compass that lets you live an independent and fulfilled life guided by knowledge and power. 

Get in touch and see if we are a fit.

Impact is about setting your own rules and stepping into your authentic self by overcoming fear. It starts with embracing your power by knowing that you control your thoughts and emotions – and with that: your experiences, your reactions and actions. It also means that no one can take away your power because it lies within you. 

I help you step into authenticity and power, embrace your emotions and develop a positive mindset to craft a long-term strategy that keeps you motivated and on track to create the impact that you desire. 

It is because of my personal history and the lessons I have learned that I structure my work around MINDSET, EMOTIONAL POWER, and STRATEGY.

This is what I bring to personal sessions, group settings, and corporate offerings and promise a profound experience. 

The question I am eager and ready to answer is not where are you from, but who do you want to be, and what do you want to impact?  That is when the real conversation begins!
