Yourself, Understood

About me

Hello and welcome to my website! Happy to e-meet you!

Raffaello Palandri

I am a Business and Personal Happiness Coach and Consultant, a writer, a speaker.

I was born in Florence, Italy, and have lived in Rome for many years and later moved abroad, in Scotland, to finally move to Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany, where I currenly live and work.

I have developed the Yourself, Understood Coaching Method using my more than 25 years of international experience as a coach and a consultant for government, businesses and individuals. I have described the basics of my method in a book called "Free to Achieve", translated into Italian as "Liberi di Fare". German and Spanish translation will be available at the end of 2020.
I am writing other 3 books, due mid 2021:

  • Make Happiness Your Habit
  • MMQG for busy people - Meditation, Mindfulness, Qi Gong to give you a healthier, wealthier, and happier life
  • Happiness is what you decide it to be - from Veda to today, everything you ever wanted to know about Happiness

I have also written an IT manual in 1999 (Piccolo Dizionario di Informatica Quotidiana - EdUP), and several scientific articles about IT and linguistics.

I held lessons about "How Search Engines work and are developed" at the University of Rome La Sapienza.

I have worked as a consultant for several Italian Ministries and Governmental Agencies and for a University Consortium in Rome.

MMQG Logo In my practice I make use of Meditation, Mindfulness, and Qi Gong. This practice goes under the name of MMQG and represents the perfect companion of my Coaching Method, allowing practitioners to get a healthier, wealthier, and happier personal and professional life by getting rid of stress, anxiety, low self-esteem and growing awareness and confidence.

I have a B.A. (summa cum laude) in LINFO (Languages in the INFOrmation society), with a thesis on how to identify bias in speech using a linguistic and mathematical/statistical method, proposing a new, quicker, and more efficient algorithm (compared to other analysis methods used in Linguistics) to perform the analysis.
