Light Up Desenvolvimento Humano was created in 2015 with the purpose of encouraging the full productive capacity of both individuals and organizations.
We believe that it is possible to create healthy organizational atmospheres, where well-being and humanized relationships enhance performance and organizational results. We also believe that, when people understand their identity and their talents, they can better own them and thus multiply their best version.
We impact people in the development of their competencies across four areas of expertise:
Development of intercultural awareness as an integral part of the preparation for expatriation as well as for teams with international exposure
Development of leaders who promote organizational health and contribute to a humanized management
Diagnostic tools that contribute to organizational decisions, executive selection and succession
We have a portfolio of both face-to-face and online training programs with the purpose of developing socio-emotional skills
We help individuals build consistent careers, aligned with their callings. And we facilitate talent management and succession planning for organizations
We offer solutions that involve technology to enhance learning.
All the consultants who work as partners specialize in human development, continuously invest in updating inside and outside Brazil, and have robust certifications in human and organizational development.
We also offer bilingual services (Portuguese and English) throughout the portfolio.

"The Leader Development Track training exceeded my expectations. Also, I consider a privilege having had Luciana as an instructor because her experience and devotion were critical for our successful learning. She was an inspiration by showing that it is always possible to evolve."
Daniele Cristina Mega Ijaille
"Participating in the Intercultural Awareness training helped me a lot. It enabled me to identify cultural patterns when I arrived to Norway, and to better organize my plan of coming to live here. It made all the difference to be able to plan and to know how to face this challenge. If I were ever asked: ‘Was it worthwhile?’ I would say that it certainly was."
Danilo Bernett Junior
Senior Engineer at Aker Solutions
"A transparent, thoughtful consultancy. I am grateful to Luciana Gazzoni for contributing with her professionalism and, especially, for carrying out the work with integrity and consistency. Our Leader Development Track was assertive. Light Up contributed with fundamental competences that will reflect on the formation, the essence and the values of a leader. There has been an expressed concern about customization by caring attentively to aspects of our culture and the needs of our business, which is critical for management results."
Gisela De Paula Cardozo Pereira
OD Supervisor at Unimed Curitiba
"Thanks to LightUP and Luciana Gazzoni, I was able to give a new direction to my professional life. After the coaching sessions and the Birkman test, I was able to identify my main traits and the business environments that best suit my profile, which allowed me to redirect my career with high assertiveness. I am very happy with the results and I recommend it. In the moment of greatest doubt, she helped me see the certainties, which was encouraging and allowed me to turn the tables."

"Light Up me has given me tools to better understand my own behavior and work on my flaws, which now I am capable of identifying."
Isabel Maria Porto Caldeira
HR Manager at Adient
"The coaching process has improved both my personal and my professional development. Working on the weaknesses of my career has been revealing and very constructive. Coaching has guided me through the required changes in attitudes and habits, as well as the ability to develop skills, especially leadership. My sessions are some highly anticipated and productive moments in the week, and I lose track of time as Luciana is capable of addressing even difficult subjects in a light and structured way. Coaching has been a very assertive decision in my professional career."
Facilities Manager at Renault
"I had contact with Light Up and with Luciana on two different occasions and companies. The first one in a Leadership Training. We were looking for a different Leadership program, which worked deeply with themes that were important and complex but, at the same time, had a strongly practical approach. Through the partnership with Luciana, we implemented this program and it was successful. Each meeting was filled with lots of learning and exchanges and, as a result, the feedback was excellent! The second demand concerned assessment and, once again, we trusted Luciana and the method she proposed. The results that were presented by Luciana after the assessment process were surprisingly detailed and deep, and have certainly helped us with important decision-making. Everyone involved highlighted the solid work accomplished and the excellent support provided by Luciana throughout the whole process!"
HR Team Leader at Wittur
"I have already participated in various workshops taught by Luciana. Her work is exquisite and different. She brings into the classroom a practical, light, relaxed method that, at the same time, has a sound theoretical basis to all the themes she proposes to work with. In the Disc workshop, for example, managers were able to experience and understand each of the profiles, while self-observing and increasing self-knowledge, in addition to gaining a perception of their subordinates, which helped a lot with team management."
Business Partner at Grupo Marista
“While in the position of training and development supervisor, I had the opportunity of promoting two sessions of the Interculturality Workshop. The feedback from the participants was excellent! The strengths were the instructor’s complete mastery of the subject, her great pedagogical resource, and a tailor-made training prepared to meet our needs.”
Engineering School at Renault do Brasil
“The coaching process conducted by Luciana allowed for a transformation in the way I work with the different challenges of managing people and processes according to the Group's values. Through guidelines and activities, I was able to carry out a deep reflection about the daily events before my team, peers, direct manager and organization and, as a result, to outline actions for my development and to take the next steps, in a easier and more natural way.”
Facilities Manager at Grupo Marista

That is why we continuously work on contents for development programs to prepare our employees for the challenges of providing good service, exceeding goals and, especially, achieving self-management and understanding people management. In this constant search for training, we seek knowledgeable partners and excellence consultants. The partnership with Light Up in the development of our leaders of the production and operation areas goes far beyond the classroom. The customized construction of methodology, the teaching material, the concern with knowing both the business and the public – all add a lot to the synergy and knowledge sharing. Excellence, commitment, attention and kindness are words that describe Luciana Gazzoni. Above all, our leaders have exchanged experience with someone who is capable of understanding their needs and who inspires them to be better.”
