About Mira Griffiths
Mira is Transformational Coach and Counsellor. Her work is tailored to guide people back to their psychological safety, helping people to become more authentic and experience peace, freedom and confidence in their lives. Mira is also the co-founder of The Mind Takeaway, a coaching and consultancy company where she works with leaders and organisations. Her podcast series shares the same name, for which she co-hosts. This highlights her passion for pointing people to what it is to be human in an age of technology and digitisation.
Her background: Mira first left her home when she was 12 because of war in her hometown that started in her country, former Yugoslavia. Since then she has lived in 4 countries, worked as a physiotherapist, managing multinational teams as well as establishing a rehab centre in the middle east. Her path to counselling and coaching came from a personal struggle and she found a missing link that helped her in her work as a leader. She understood that our limitations and behaviour come from fears, insecurities and a limited perception of ourselves and this can be changed. This understanding helped her transformation to become a more authentic and compassionate leader. Call it her new path to help other leaders become more authentic and create from a space of clarity, which consequently leads to better and faster results, more satisfied employees and sustainable organisations.
In March 2020, Mira and The Mind Takeaway team are kicking off a new project focused on developing more authentic leaders, they will be working closely with a small group in Berlin but they will also be launching the project online in the future.
How to Navigate Uncertainty and Change in a Challenging World is the one-day event Mira is hosting in Liverpool on April 25th together with a few other colleagues.

In this Episode
Miroslava is her full name, Mir means peace and Slava means celebration.
Considering that Mira is relatively young, in my eyes she already has had a rich and varied experience of life. Simply repeating all the names of the places that she lived had me out of breath. This conversation is jam packed with gold, its one insight after the other.
Here is a very short summary of the conversation:
‘Trusting yourself is a constant learning. Sometimes you fail in the things you think you know but then you learn’.
How much of your life do you think that you are planning?
In how far do you trust your thinking?
How are you being congruent with yourself?
Are you doing things that you want to do rather than what others think you should do?
Are you looking for permission to be You?
If so from whom??
What form of torture are you using to try to be somebody else??
Are you allowing yourself to be wrong?
Are you allowing yourself to fail?
Give yourself permission to be wrong.
Give yourselves permission to fail.
I invite you to listen and if you feel that someone could benefit from these conversations please share them. You never know who might listen.
