Christian Filli - Change Catalyst & Integral Coach
I’m Christian, the founder of Scyrocco®. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope this website has at least piqued your curiosity.
If you are currently entertaining questions related to how you can create new possibilities for yourself and those you seek to influence, then perhaps we should talk.
I believe that gaining clarity around this topic - whether it shows up in our individual experience and consciousness, our intellectual and creative pursuits, our career path and business endeavors, our social networks and interpersonal relationships, or our life in general- is what enables us to feel more in sync with our inner compass and make a unique contribution to the world. I believe that nobody is a one-note instrument, and that self-creation is the most promising path for any person or group to keep on growing and developing. I also believe that every single human being - and every company, for that matter - has a unique gift. Call it music, light, impetus, magic, energy, or whatever you prefer. Accessing, harnessing and expressing that gift, though, can oftentimes prove difficult; it takes courage, humility and dedication.
Does any of this resonate with you? Do you consider it worth exploring?
A little bit about myself:
I'm an Integral Coach®, Associate Certified Coach (ACC) by the International Coach Federation (ICF), and I hold a B.A. in Social Communications. I specialize in understanding patterns of human motivation, decoding cultural narratives, and examining how these might affect individuals, organizations, brands, and society at large. A common question I get is "what's your approach?", to which I tend to reply that it is human-centric as opposed to methodology-centric. It is expansive, multi-dimensional, and tailored to each of my clients. I strive to meet them where they are along their journey, actively listen to their aspirations and hold a safe space for meaningful dialogue; and I draw upon a vast array of resources and experiences I've collected over time to offer programs that help them integrate new competencies.
My professional trajectory spanned corporate leadership, talent development, organizational learning, strategic innovation, marketing communications and brand consulting. I oversaw commercial operations at Reebok for several years, and played a variety of roles within the most prominent multinationals in the field of creative services - Publicis, WPP and Omnicom. I’m of Swiss-Cuban descent, born in Mexico, raised in Brazil, and currently based in Austin, Texas. I'm also a former cowboy, soccer player, triathlete, mountain climber and a National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) graduate.
I've occasionally been dubbed 'a man of many hats' ... But I rather see myself as an ordinary guy with wide-ranging interests, who likes to question the status quo; I'm a nonconformist at heart, trendwatcher and world citizen. First and foremost, I apply my diverse background, cultural acumen and endless curiosity to broadening my own perspective and guiding others, as we all navigate an ever more complex global landscape. My ultimate goal is to see people lead more meaningful, harmonious and intentional lives.
