About

I AM IN THE PROCESS OF TRANSFERRING MY WEBSITE – PLEASE VISIT MY NEW SITE http://mirnahidalgo.strikingly.com/

Hi, I am Mirna Hidalgo.  I am a lawyer and have spent almost 20 years providing strategic legal advice, negotiating multimillion transactions and leading international project teams.  Experience thought me that formal qualifications do not prepare you for the most interesting challenge in any job and life in general:  dealing with people.  You may be great at what you do, have the right answers, or be the most knowledgeable expert in your field, but you will still need to face a difficult boss, deal with complex relationships with colleagues, children who make unreasonable claims at home, and manage your own fears and anxiety…

You never graduate from difficult relationships, conflicts and the need to negotiate and influence others.  I have spent a lot of time and energy learning and living the theory and practice of strategic thinking, conflict management and negotiation.  Knowing yourself, exploring what you really want and interacting with others to get there should not have to be a struggle.  It can also be an adventure.

It makes me very happy to share what I know about personal growth and interpersonal skills in both corporate settings or one-to-one training and coaching sessions.  I love seeing how a mix of self-reflection and interaction empowers people to find solutions and achieve their goals by themselves.

I am also an artist and I believe cultivating creative thinking is key to living and working wisely. You can see my artwork in Facebook Mirna Hidalgo MirnArt.

In sum, this is what I stand for:

  • M otivate yourself
  • I nspire your dreams
  • R esolve your conflicts and commit to your goals
  • N urture your passion and have
  • A mbition and accountability to achieve your own vision
