I was Pavla’s coachee and I just loved the way she helped me evolve and make discoveries that allowed me to go places I hadn’t imagine. She is super attentive and manages to apply the techniques in a cohesive and simple way.
Certainly, I have developed myself a lot. Thanks (translated from Portuguese)

Doing the coaching process with you was really a watershed moment in my personal and professional life. Getting my dreams off the drawing board has been incredibly rewarding. Thank you Pavla for helping me to believe in me and make my dreams come true. I am so grateful! (translated from Portuguese)

Pavla and I completed intercultural coaching while I was moving with my husband and family to Germany. She offered me opportunities not only to integrate more easily into the new society and cope with the new environment (although because of Covid and the restrictions she didn’t have many options :)), she also offered  me the opportunity to look at myself and start all the changes from within. For a while, she also became our marriage counselor and helped us strengthen our relationship in our new home. I definitely recommend it! (translated from Czech)

Pavla at Leader Decisions helped steer me through a difficult period in my life. Finding myself drifting between projects, with mounting worries about my personal life, family, and finances, overlayed by a foreboding sense of isolation due to the Covid pandemic – the world seemed to be closing in on me. At the same time my self-confidence was drifting away from me. Pavla helped me to identify my concerns, contextualise them, and put them into some kind of order of importance. Pavla introduced me to a series of tools that helped me to see my predicament more clearly so that I could start to bring some rational order back into my life. Through a series of weekly online meetings, with homework tasks between, we worked the issues and I gradually regained my confidence. Just by going through this process my world took on a fresher more positive outlook and I am pleased to say that with the fullness of time I found myself back on track, with a new and exciting job, and an invigorated approach to my home and family life. Thanks Pavla, without your support I wouldn’t be in the place I find myself today.

Coaching with Pavla helped me to activate myself again and return meaning and joy into my daily activities. I received support and push, so important to me at the time. Thanks to Pavla, I added another piece to the mosaic of self-knowledge and with its positive lens I try to look at some of the situations that life brings.

Resilience Coaching with Pavla has reassured me that what is happening to me is nothing abnormal or unsolvable, that I can handle it myself, and it can bring results other than unpleasant emotions or behavior, it can bring insights into various situations instead. I was given the tools to deal with and work with the facts in relation to my own doubts. I’m even more in line with myself. I am aware of my needs and also my boundaries. I’m working on being aware of my boundaries and shifting them when necessary, however, feeling in tune with myself so that I don’t fight it. It is also important for me to understand how it all works, it then merges into one and Pavla can lead you there. (translated from Czech)

I had a wonderful experience going through intercultural coaching with Pavla! She opened my eyes to the unique intricacies contained in each culture. We discussed differences between cultures that I have experienced that deepened my understanding of how to go about living in a new culture. I have no doubt that if you do intercultural coaching with Pavla, whether you are doing it from a business perspective or for personal reasons, you will learn wonderful techniques to make the most out of future cultural experiences.

Pavla started coaching me in 2014, at a time I had been seriously considering changing my job for a year and thinking about my other career and life goals and possibilities in general. Before our first session, I was completely drained of energy, my self-confidence was low and I was frustrated with my job that wasn’t fulfilling me and in which I had no perspective of growth. Pavla, however, guided me step by step towards better self-knowledge and being more proactive, she accurately analyzed my doubts and their source. Towards the end of our cooperation, I suddenly started receiving interesting job offers. After a long time, I finally felt a huge influx of energy and well-being, not only because I succeeded again in the job market, but also in my personal life I started to do better and I was much more satisfied. I had no idea that our “talk” could change my life like this and I am very happy that I decided to do coaching with her. I can highly recommend Pavla as a coach! (translated from Czech)

“Become the leader of your actions, not the follower of your reactions.” 



It’s the thought that counts: Trait self-control is positively associated with well-being and coping via thought control ability – Current Psychology Journal

Pavla, the founder of Leader Decision, has done a research examining whether self-control positively influences life satisfaction through thought control ability ( keeping unwanted thoughts and intrusions at bay) and if it helps to cope with stress in an adaptive manner rather than maladaptive. What she found with her colleagues Karlijn Massar and Xincheng Sui is that indeed higher self-control helps to control our thought and increases our happiness and our ability to cope better with stress.

A typical picture for a Czech girl, haha. I am looking at the waves. They aren't so good today. I do not want to enter [...]
