MY VISION

I believe in creating frameworks that allow you to learn to flourish in life and business.

Time is our most precious commodity, and our job is to make the best out of it by living the most impactful and joyful life we can.

Living in the moment while working on being an impactful leader and role model comes with its own burdens. Sleepless nights, pressure, anxiety, not knowing if you can pull off your big, audacious dreams. Then there’s the fear of falling short and letting others down.

That’s why I do what I do. So, that you can be fully yourself in a life that you enjoy.

About Kinga

Multi-Passionate World Citizen

I am an international social and organizational psychologist with over 15 years of experience as an organizational and leadership development specialist in intercultural communication and personal development. I speak four languages and have grown up amongst and between cultures (including Polish, German, South African, and US), perpetuating my constant curiosity to learn more about other cultures. I have lived on three continents and currently reside in the USA. 

As the first woman and social psychologist to gain access to a South African maximum-security prison, I observed first-hand the impact of emotions on self-worth and confidence. As a Doctor in Social Psychology and a trained yoga teacher, I have built a strong foundation for my practice – a balance between science and mindfulness.

Leveraging my in-depth experience, observations, and extensive training, I have created the Ziva Way Method™, a unique leadership & lifestyle philosophy that explores mindset, confidence, network building, and emotions. I have over a decade of experience working with leaders, teams, and entrepreneurs to help them achieve purposeful life goals and ambitious professional goals. I have also started several successful projects and ventures around the world, such as a cross-cultural consultancy in Germany and South Africa (ThreeClouds), an UN seed award-winning social enterprise building schools out of non-recyclable material (EcoBrick Exchange), and a global initiative to amplify women’s voices and connect women worldwide (Ziva Voices). 

Some of my clients included Renault, VW, Borbet, Lazard, SEB, and Shiseido.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold a PhD in Social Psychology, a Master’s degree in Sociology focused on organizational development, as well as Philosophy and Art History degrees. I also hold a Bachelor of Honors in Group Dynamics and am a certified mediator and leadership coach.

I have a background in the corporate world as well as a long-standing track record as a social entrepreneur. As an organizational and leadership coach / advisor / consultant, I have supported clients across multiple industries (automotive, tech, banking, etc) as well as executive leaders who are structuring a career transition. 

During my time in South Africa, I taught at the Nelson Mandela University, and also worked as a facilitator for international projects focused on combatting racism and supporting cultural integration and reconciliation. 

Additionally, I completed a 2-year training in Sivananda Yoga, 500 hours of training at the Asheville Yoga Center, a qualification in Ayurvedic Psychology Coaching, and hold additional certifications in meditation and breathwork.

My personal and professional experiences combined with my professional training and education all contribute to my unique methodology called The Ziva Way™ Method.
