In 2021, when working for Unilever, we started the journey of preparing the entire organization for working and leading in a hybrid mode. This is when i met Cristina, a highly skilled trainer on remote leadership and hybrid working. She didn’t only support my colleagues in South Central Europe but was actually a trusted partner for whole East Europe region. We had many workshops where Cristina helped us understand the new reality, equiped us with tools to navigate it farther and created a safe space for us to experiment. She is very structured, organized, friendly, patient, has huge valuable knowledge and insights to share and can tailor the content to meet any audience and every need.
What I appreciated the most about Cristina is that she walks the talk, whatever she talked about during the sessions we had, you can actually see it applied; and this is an extremely important ingredient in building trust and managing change.
Cristina, thank you for the journey!
Cristina helped us navigate the complexity of an instant switch into fully remote work during the first wave of the covid-19 lockdown. Through a series of workshops for the above-market Asahi team, she managed to provide a set of crisp, practical and useful rules to help the leaders manage their teams in a remote environment, fully tailored to the specifics of our company culture. She also provided us with a set of trainings on how to run remote meetings, targeted to the wider team. Her energy, empathy and down-to-earth approach resulted in a very positive feedback overall, and contributed to the transition of the business to the new ways of working. It was a very pleasant cooperation overall!
I had the chance to know Cristina while I’ve been working in Asahi Group. At the beginning of the pandemic she developed and delivered in our company a complex cross-organizational virtual development program.
Under the new market circumstances with Corona crisis, Cristina grasped immediately the need of the organisations for new awareness and skill enhancement across the organizations, in order to maintain market leadership.
Cristina spoke for the first time about Hybrid Leadership, team dynamics & challenges in a hybrid workplace, and also brought on the table inspiring topics on diverse and inclusive cultures.
Beyond the brilliant concepts and workshops content, Cristina revealed herself as a truly inspirational trainer. With high passion for her work and for people in general, Cristina created a relation of trust and honest guidance with all of us. Facilitating conversations with lots of patience, encouragement, smart and elegant questions and replies, she succeeded to generate many “aha” moments among us and increased a lot our confidence and performance in a such ambiguous context.
I recommend Cristina as a valuable mentor, coach, trainer for any organization that goes through transformations, where she is able to make a great change impact on people, personally and professionally, and also on business leadership culture.
I consider Cristina Muntean as one of the best in the field of public relations and brand management in the Czech Republic. We met for the first time in the summer of 2011 when I asked her for strategic and, given the time pressure, crisis solutions for the marketing and PR of a global conference that I was organizing at that time. I was stunned by Cristina’s passion and wave of fresh ideas that she started putting into practice immediately. Her rich experience and network of contacts transformed our further cooperation into a genuine success. Thanks to Cristina, to her mentoring and training I started to develop myself in the field of personal brand management and I learnt how to handle communication with reporters. I also can’t forget her openness and availability whenever we needed her. She is always smiley and full of energy that she passes on to her clients. Working with Cristina isn’t about a relationship supplier-customer: working with her means friendship, trust and mutual understanding. We are working together for a few years already and I do believe we will continue cooperating in the future as well.
Cristina měla během velmi důležité fáze mého rozvoje obrovský vliv na můj styl komunikace a mou emoční inteligenci. V přechodném stadiu mi pomohla, abych se ve svém profesním i osobním životě dostala na další, vyšší úroveň. Při naplňování mých specifických potřeb byla nesmírně trpělivá a flexibilní. Otevřela mi "analytickou mysl" a rozšířila mé pochopení toho, proč je důležité porozumět sama sobě i ostatním. Cristina umí velmi citlivě pojmenovat všechny aspekty, které vyžadují pozornost a zlepšení; přitom však zcela respektovala moje potřeby. Pro mě jsou oblasti emoční inteligence a psychologie velmi abstraktní vědy. Přesto se Cristině podařilo změnit mou perspektivu a přesvědčit mě o důležitosti zlepšení mých dovedností i v těchto oblastech.
