“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots; the other, wings.”

W. Hodding Carter II.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye”.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (The Little Prince)

Who am I

María José Portas

Founder of Coaching Co-Razón

Following an extensive professional trajectory leading work groups, I have come to consider as principle values knowing oneself (self-knowledge), how we see ourselves (self-perception) and how this has influence on our internal dialogue, on our communication with our surroundings, on our behaviour and, consequently, on the way we establish relationships on both a personal level (family, friends and partners) and a professional level.
Something that appears so simple, that together with the productive capacity of language to create reality, so often goes unnoticed in our lives, and thus we find ourselves in situations where similar behaviour roles or patterns with a common denominator of emotional dependence are repeated and, in consequence, the toxic relationships, which distance us from our goals..

“Self-knowledge, self-awareness, social sensitivity, empathy and ability to communicate successfully with others corresponds to the heart”.

Stephen Covey.

CCR Methodology

Coaching Co-Razón is based on the CCR methodology which unites the emotional side (heart-reason) and the rational side (reason-heart) of the coachee, where the coach focuses their actions in obtaining the maximum personal and professional development of the people (on an individual or group level).

“A man always has two reasons for doing anything: a good reason and the real reason”. J.P.Morgan.

Know yourself

Be authentic, become the best version of yourself, get enjoyment from yourself, from your surroundings. Become aware of who you are and who you want to become. Identify your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Develop confidence and security. Strengthen your motivations, competences and values. Adapt to changes, learning to auto-regulate emotions. Assume your power to choose and responsibility to react to different situations. What do you want? What do you feel? What do you need?


Develop empathy to understand and support others, communicate with emotional intelligence and non-violent communication, on both intra and inter personal levels. Change habits and learn to manage them adequately. Flexibility is important in order to face changes. Values. Task, Vision and Purpose. With an adequate communication you can manage resources to reach the established goals, both on a personal and professional area, thus improving the quality of your interactions, leadership and, therefore, the improvement and achievement of results.


Develop social competences, social and relationship skills, active listening, assertiveness, ability to express and communicate. Define objectives and goals in order to draw-up an plan of action.

Develop a greater confidence in yourself, acquire competences, tools and abilities to detect, perceive and express your emotions. It is important to identify and acknowledge both your own and those of others. Improve your commitment, participation, courage, ability to adapt and flexibility. Draw-up and design alternatives, prepare yourself to face new circumstances and unexpected events. Attain a better balance and conciliation between personal and professional life.
