I am Adriana Caliri (Adry) an International Leadership Coach committed to helping individuals find and unlock their potential through their personal strengths, passions, and creativity while pursuing both personal and professional goals.

Born and raised in Italy, I grew up surrounded by a rich culture in which art, passionate people and good food were integral to life. My drive to make an impact through my career is rooted in my deep passion for connecting with people from different cultures and to innovate together. This passion took me on a journey of 25 years of international corporate experience in several executive leadership positions across Europe and the US.

My transformative life shift happened twelve years ago, when after several months of deep frustration and anxiety at work, I made a conscious decision to take my life back into my own hands and found my authentic leadership voice within my organization. As a result, my career blossomed into positions that I not only deeply loved, but also positions that fulfilled me.  Through these various roles, I was able to support and inspire many individuals while helping them to achieve incredible business and team results.

In my last role at Nike WHQ, as the GM for Tennis and Golf, I mastered the art of leading & developing highly productive and innovative cross-functional teams towards a common vision.

Adriana Caliri

In 2021, I left the US and the corporate world to fully dedicate my life to coaching.

I moved with my husband to a sunny village in the south of Spain where we opened our company: Renaissance-cec.

Our niche is helping women in transition to find their authentic voice and lead with courage from the inside out. 

In a time of uncertainty and constant change, being able to clarify the unique contribution we all bring to work is the most impactful and transformative first step towards inclusive environments and where diversity is the key source of creativity and innovation.

Beyond work, I love painting, walking at the beach with my husband and my dogs and listening to the stories and dreams of people from across the world that I meet in the village. Soon, the Covid “cocooning time” will be over and will be thrilled to once again welcome back our dear friends from around the world.

I believe we all have wings, a unique superpower inside of us. I am passionate about helping leaders to connect to their wings and dare to lead from the inside out.

About Renaissance

At Renaissance we believe that we are all born with the tools necessary to live a successful and fulfilled life. However, the fast pace of modern life and societal influences often make us forget how incredibly resourceful we are. Instead of focusing on what we lack, we have the powerful choice to recognize and utilize what we already possess to live the life we desire. This is the way to get back the life in our hands and live an inspiring life from the inside-out. 



After spending 25 years moving around the world to pursue a successful corporate career at Nike, I decided to change my life and follow my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Shifting from ambition to meaning, I now dedicate my life to helping people discover their wings and fly.

I firmly believe that each of us carries a unique light within ourselves. It is our responsibility to illuminate it for our own benefit and for the betterment of those around us. When we do that, we inspire other people to find their own light so that we can all excel together.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
