My journey into coaching started in 2016 while living in Dubai. I was promoted to take over a large finance team in Europe. Although I was thrilled by 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.
Hiring an executive coach is by far the best career decision I have made. With my coach, I identified self-limiting beliefs that prevented me from reaching my full leadership potential. I discovered that my fear of being judged by others restrained me from taking action. My own reflection of who I was, and what drove me in life led me to make more resonant choices and live fully aligned with my values. Finally, I realized that what I loved doing at work with my teams – i.e., helping people develop and grow – was essentially coaching others. This is what brought me to a coaching education.
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active® Coach (CPCC) and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC). I completed my training with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), the leading coaching school worldwide, accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). As a Co-Active® Coach, I work with you to, first set challenging goals that will add to your life; and second, achieve those goals. As a coach, I function as a sounding board, and offer support, encouragement, feedback, and direction for you to step beyond your current situation and to take a great leap in work or life.
