My journey into coaching started in 2016 while I was still living in Dubai. At the time, I was promoted to take over a large finance team in Europe. Although I was thrilled to have been given this opportunity, I also felt very unsecure about the future; I was afraid of not knowing how to manage that big team; a little voice inside me kept whispering that this was way out of my league. I also felt very lonely professionally, having no-one I could talk to about how I felt or what I should do.
Following my wife’s advice, I made the decision to hire a Coach for myself in order to discuss about my new job and my challenges. This is by far the best career decision I have ever made. Through the work I have done with my Coach, I realized I had self-limiting beliefs that prevented me from reaching my full potential at work. I discovered that I feared to do things that I knew how to do perfectly well. What I feared was just the judgment of others. The provocative questions my Coach asked me, and my own reflection of who I was, and what drove me in life taught me how to make more resonant choices and live fully aligned with my values. Finally, I came to realize that what I loved doing at work with my teams – i.e., helping people develop and grow – was essentially nothing other than coaching others. Upon starting in my new role, I therefore also decided that I wanted to be more skilled in coaching others.
