I was a sceptic and a first timer to coaching. But after meeting and engaging with my coach that has changed forever for me. I received coaching during a very turbulent time in my organization. We had to change our operational model to adapt to new laws in the country and cope with anxiety and uncertainty as COVID raged. Her attentiveness to me, nurturing approach to coaching, patience, management gems that she shared with me because of her diverse experience and working with teams from varied backgrounds, helped me navigate the turbulent times fabulously. While there was a storm raging outside, she centered me so that my energy and thoughts were focused on self, team and organization. Her coaching was like white noise – it helped me focus on the bigger picture and rise above irritations and annoyances.
