Want to Stop People-Pleasing, Be More Strategic and Navigate Ambiguity?
What Is Leadership Coaching?
A partnership with you
Coaching is partnering with you in a creative process to help you maximize your personal and professional potential.
What is the process like?
Every coaching partnership is personalized based on the client’s needs. At a high-level, we first determine where you’re at, and the goals you’ll like to achieve. I’ll work with you to determine the type of practices/actions you’ll need to achieve your desired outcome.
What are some areas I help my clients with?
They include areas like:-
- stop people-pleasing (be okay saying ‘No’ without the guilt!)
- navigate tough conversations
- influence others
- deal with imposter syndrome and self-doubt
- navigate ambiguity
How Do I know If Coaching is Right For Me?
If you’re not getting the results you want, working with a coach is the fastest way to get you results.
I want to work with a coach but I don't have the time!
Many of my clients tell me that they look forward to the call with me because it is the only time they stop to think and breathe. The only time they give to themselves.
If you feel that you don’t have 1 hour every 2 weeks for yourself to focus on achieving what you really want then one of the first things we would be working on is to help you prioritize the things in your work so that you can say yes to the important stuff and no to the rest.
How do I know if you can help me?
I’ve designed the clarity call just for that. It is a no obligation, risk-free call for you to see how I work and also for us to discuss your goals and how I can support you to achieve your goals as your coach.
What if I struggle with the steps I need to take to achieve my goals?
As you get started with goals that are important to you, it is not uncommon to start feeling the pressure, procrastination and other unconscious self-sabotages. This is where I come in. As a coach, I’ll be able to help you see the blind spots that are stopping you and finally work through them so that you can finally achieve what you want.
