My coaching style is built around awareness building, collaboration, developmental, down-to-earth, insightful, in the moment, practical/pragmatic, solutions-focused, strategic, transformational
Though I’m committed to working with a diverse range of clients, I have a specialty in entrepreneurship, social impact, and female empowerment (especially Asian background and immigrants). My ideal type of clients are:
-Mid-level professionals who are committed to creating a shift in their lives, including launching their new businesses, contemplating major career transitions, or wanting to feel more fulfillment and balance. -Startup founders or visionary individuals who have ideas or in the initial process of starting their own business/projects/initiatives.
I begin coaching relationships with my clients by helping them define their goals and what success looks like for them. I hold my clients accountability by checking in during and in-between our sessions. I also ask clients for feedback throughout the process on if they are on track. When things are not on track, I help clients recalibrate if necessary, surface new insights and come up with appropriate solutions.
In my coaching, I ask provocative, powerful questions to help clients to become more self-aware, to reflect and share honestly, to gain clarity, and to take action. My gifts for keen listening, observation, and catalyzing courageous conversations set the stage for deep and lasting transformation for individuals. I also employ a customized, results-focused and collaborative process to maximize impact and outcomes.
