Executive Coaching

Coaching is a self-directed process. What outcome would you like to see? We can set and clarify the goals as we start the relationship. I generally see people take away much more – insights, behavioural changes, happiness, and a sense of fulfilment – plenty of possibilities. 

Let’s talk and find out a good package tailored to your needs.

A weekly frequency can be good at the beginning if you are new to coaching, to keep the reflective muscle warm – that is, if your schedule allows that. After 4-5 sessions we might sail into a reduced interval to cater to your developmental pace. But it is good not to pause for longer than 2 months. But in principle, we can meet at whatever frequency works best for you.

Career Coaching

Book a call and we will talk about how to tailor these sessions according to your needs.

If one of these is true about you: ruminate about resignation / are looking to move internally / are planning a career change / want a leadership role / need to redefine life priorities / are back from a long career break / want to negotiate better / love tech industry.
My 𝗣𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲ᵀᴹ framework provides a structure. Together we reflect; we take stock of your career capital, unique qualities, and aspirations; we map the market and generate new possibilities.
Together we navigate risks, prospects, and the many life priorities to find a direction you believe. You will also remove limiting beliefs, boosting confidence and optimism.
To appear confident and convincing, you need a brand message that you fully embrace. I tailor-make a succinct, bold, and capturing brand message for you and help implement it in resume, LinkedIn profile, and interviews.
Tactics matter; interview strategies win. I support strategic interview preparation so you can show up convincingly with big-picture thinking and structure. I also act as a thought partner when you need to make a Financial Analysis, GTM plan, or any Strategy presentation as part of an interview process.
In negotiations, I helped many clients to win not only money but also hearts. I’m also a regular guest speaker at INSEAD negotiation courses.
