About
Hi there!
Thank you for visiting this page to know a little more about the institute and about me. My name is Marion and I created the Institute of You to share all the things I have learned about personal development, mindfulness, authenticity and growth mindset.

 

Within the first 4 years of my career in tech, I was promoted to manager and then to director, having to lead three new managers and three different teams across two countries. I quickly realised I needed to learn about managing my emotions, resilience and leadership skills in order to successfully handle these responsibilities.

As I grew in my role of director, I discovered what I loved doing the most, and what I was the best at: helping new leaders to ramp up and find their own leadership voice, and supporting people to find what they are meant to do, and work on a plan to just do it.

About The Institute

I created the Institute of You in 2017 to share all that I knew (and kept learning) on growth mindset, authenticity, and leadership. I’m passionate about supporting people who want to understand themselves better and lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. Wherever you are in this journey, you will find here useful resources.
There are 4 main steps you can take to develop yourself and keep growing:

Understand who you are
Your personal growth starts with self-awareness and mindfulness. It’s about knowing what baggage you bring with you contains, and how it can affect the situations you are in.
Set the direction of your journey
Once you know who you are, you can work on where you’re going. Setting the wheel in motion is an exciting part as you get to take the first actions towards your goal and see the first results.
Build resilience
Life isn’t always easy and plans don’t always work out as expected. Your reactions to obstacles and challenges will make all the difference. You can learn how to bounce back happier and stronger than before.
Adjust

How do you handle these challenges, new experiences, and changes and take them into account? Do you stick to the plan no matter what, or do you choose adaptability? The key of success – the one you defined yourself – lies here.
