In February 2018, Gianluca Rosania Larrea met Paul van den Hout during an international coaching event in Barcelona and since then, they have joined their forces creating synergies. Their first goal was to start writing the guide
“EL CAMINO”, that was published in 2020 and they founded the platform LIVT,
elevate your talent.
A psychologist and a businessman:
Two cultures, two different backgrounds and one mutual goal: supporting the society with a hands-on mentality for (team)coaching sessions, executive training and business & tech recruitment. Moreover, the guide “EL CAMINO”, supports adolescents with the difficult choice for their future regarding their career.
After various brainstorming sessions with our creative team, we decided to register the name LIVT, “elevate your talent”. Our main goal and mission are to help as many persons as possible finding their path and avoiding any obstacles withholding them from being successful in their personal and professional life.
LIVT wants to elevate your talent towards new heights, by supporting you during our coaching sessions, providing you with some powerful tools as a structural support for finding your vision for the future or to enhance your productivity while having fun!
We live for our values; we strive to learn more every day, remembering we are still very tiny, and we show persistence acknowledging that success and happiness need time to develop. We never forget that it is not the strongest of species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones that are most adaptable to change. We have a huge respect for our clients knowing that we are all earthlings and equals!
As the founders of LIVT, we have a huge drive and an enormous motivation to help you become more successful. We offer our large international experience with the principle “don’t teach but share”, by creating synergies on many professional areas.
Apart from the two founders, LIVT counts with external specialists like coaches for specific areas, public speakers, psychologists or team leaders in order to provide the best personalised service.
