WITH A SOUL.
Five songs make up my new EP. Each song has its own sound texture and identity. I chose the title of the album, A Woman With A Soul, from one of my favourite songs 1929 – A Woman With A Soul, and because this EP is truly the closest and most intimate work I have published so far.

Imagine. Transform. Perform.
“I believe the future is about creating spaces of meaningful connections not by building walls, but by bridging affinities that cut across disciplines, professions, sectors, and cultures. For this to happen we need optimistic leaders, thinkers and doers who understand the urgency of our times, who think beyond the ‘here and the now’ and put their skills, passions, and talents to work in a collective effort to make a difference. This is the greatest transformation I embarked on, not only because I believe it is possible, but because I believe it is necessary!”
Invest In Yourself.
This space is all about you! If you aspire to design your world of work on your own terms and harness the power of your multiple skills to achieve your goals, then investing in yourself, and embracing an entrepreneur mindset needs to be at the top of your priority list.
Learning how to develop a strong portfolio of offerings, manage your brand and your finances, as well as managing change and transitions are just some of the skills needed to navigate through a complex and ever changing working environment.
Invest In Culture.
Without leaders, without capital and without talent, not much gets done! In tomorrow’s world of work, we can well imagine developing open source business cultures where leaders hire entrepreneurial talents that come and go as fluid workforces that contribute to projects and tasks, learn from the experience, build relationships and then move on while cherishing the encounters.
Designing organizational cultures that can achieve this and can attract talented nomadic workforces is a challenge but it can be done. It just requires a change in perspective!
Invest In Creativity.
Today’s challenges requires great minds to come together from different walks of life! Sharing experiences, exploring the issues from different perspectives and bringing our creative self to work, are some of the ways we can collectively address topics that are relevant to our society and communities.
Developing our creative self and tapping into the creative arts with disciplines like music, art, and acting are some of the most powerful ways we have to expand our sense of consciousness and consecutiveness. This requires an inclusive, immersive and safe space that allows true magic to happen!
“Paola Granati is the amazing professional that we all seek to be in our lives both personally and as we embark our career journeys. Her passions run deep in the belief in our society, our talents and that which drives us to be our best. Consequently, she serves as a great advisor to business leaders, coaching partner for strategic designs and… A consulting friend to be a thought partner on finding our purpose.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Paola for many years. Encountering her first in her role as an HR executive leader. I had the chance to watch her from afar and learned and grew from seeing her approach on how to lead indirectly and directly. From there, our friendship blossomed and we’ve become coaching partners for our mutual entrepreneur ventures.
It is this aspect of consideration of people and culture that we see in her creative side: in her music business, vocal talent and tenacious way of getting the right things done. It is this variety of person that makes any association with Paola the best you will ever have!”Susan ChildsFounder and Principle Managing Partner LCA Enterprise LLC Learn|Create|Achieve, Delaware, USA
“I have been privileged to know Paola for many years. She encompasses the essence of professionalism, empathy, partnership. I have experienced first hand her ability to dissect complex business situations, identify the key root causes and formulate effective solutions. Organizations, corporate cultures and individuals have all benefitted from Paola's leadership and contribution throughout the years.”Luca NanniVice President Global Operations NPI at Philip Morris International - Lausanne, Switzerland
“I’ve known and worked with Paola directly and indirectly for over 20 years and I am always amazed to see the energy and passion she puts behind everything she does and how contagious that is to all of those around her. Her optimism and unwavering belief that we can achieve anything we want to when we set our mind to it and when we work together to make it happen are boosters to give our best. If you are looking for an out of the box thinker, thought leader and change maker she’s the one to go to!”Sandra SilvaArea Leader People at Sonae MC – Porto, Portugal
“Paola is a superb people’s leader. She challenges you to think creatively on how to improve things, do more with less, improve efficiency, always with a Company hat on, but putting the person at the Center of everything. I felt that, the time I spent with her, I grew both professionally and personally. She stretched me to think in a more diverse way, to find solutions, not problems and, to be a better skilled person in life. Grazie mile Paola.”Miguel Del Coso SanchezLead HRBP, International Commercial at BVI Medical, London, UK
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Paola on numerous occasions. What I appreciate most about her is her strategic thinking, willingness to be a thought partner, ability to work through challenges with you and/or the team, creative approach, and broad array of people insights. On top of that, she is a fun person that makes work enjoyable.”Julie KimPresident Plasma-Derived Therapies Business Unit - Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd, Zurich, Switzerland
