Right from the beginning of his Medical School in Pisa (Tuscany), Marco was interested in the neuroscience of the optimal experience. These were the questions related to his personal quest: How can we daily motivate ourselves, striving for high performance and excellence in the things which matter to us, being finally successful and feeling at the same time happy, while doing effortless “the right things”?
In starting in being involved in these areas as a medical doctor he laid the foundation of his theoretical medical and scientific expertise in the DAILY STATES OF PEAK PERFORMANCE AND HAPPINESS.
But he soon realized that having just an „healthy body“, in general, was not enough to produce these daily states.
HIS DISCOVERING JOURNEY IN THE FIELD OF NEUROSCIENCE APPLIED TO BUSINESS began.
After many interviews, books, several personal insightful experiences, he found the HOLY GRAIN in the NEUROSCIENCE OF FLOW (as „the psychology of the optimal experience“). FLOW can be simply described as the optimal state, when you feel relaxed, highly concentrated, when you are happy and you experience your actions as meaningful.
After analyzing carefully selected articles, reading books, and having discussions with FLOW experts (such as Steven Kotler), he created a simple & practical FLOW INDUCING CODE that works, not only for him, but also for over 1000 international executives of renowned companies he has been coaching starting in 2014.
The creation of this big FLOW tribe started in the former companies, in which he has been working for and has been continuously consolidated through his social media interventions (blogs, ..).
The climax of his journey in the FLOW research & coaching is represented by his book (published recently in English language – DESIGN THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE).
But Marco Giannecchini was still not satisfied: with the growing challenge of digitalization in health care, agile project development, leadership in world-wide uncertainty and perceiving a need for a new innovation mind-set, he founded in 2009 the FLOW Consciousness Academy (FCA).
The result: A human-centric Flow Leadership & Innovation Code.
Utilizing neuroscience, the FCA provides coaching, training and lectures with bespoke solutions to realize potential in the areas of leadership, performance, emotional intelligence, self-development and neuromarketing. In particularly Neuroscience applied to Business provides evidence-based rich strategies to improve decision making and problem solving, emotion regulation and stress management, collaborating and influencing others, coaching and change management. Understanding more about how the brain works can dramatically increase personal performance, sales and leadership skills, helping managers lead themselves and others more effectively. This unleashes potentials and creativity, driving innovation.
Today he is working as principal director and senior consultant in digital health, helping companies in launching new products and digital health solutions. And he is proud for being able to inspire people to get into this FLOW state as simply and effortless as possible to achieve epic goals at ease.
His clients report among others that the work is executed fast, people are every day at their own highest performance potential level, are more creative, more resilient, and able to find fulfillment and meaning in their own tasks. Furthermore, they are more open to innovation and to embrace agile development principles in project management from the very beginning.
This human centered leadership is key to prepare you for the future of work, which emerges from technological transition, post-covid 19 reshuffle at work and to optimize your mental health situation.
