“In our sessions, Yolanda brought to bear a wealth of personal and professional experience that challenged me to view career obstacles from fresh perspectives. Her inquisitive, contemplative, and perspicacious approach coupled with her coaching frameworks and strategies really helped me grow as a leader and manager. She knows her stuff and is a joy to work with. I recommend Yolanda without reservation.”

“Yolanda’s coaching has helped me become a more efficient and empathetic leader. It happened through a deep transformation on my presence. The new me now starts each day well-rested, which has been a complete game-changer and has manifested in many aspects of my life.
I have learned how to regain my inner calm and clarity, regardless of the challenges that may arise. This newfound capability has freed up my mental bandwidth, providing me with an abundance of time to prioritize my people, strategic thinking, and live in the present moment.
It has been an absolute pleasure to be coached by Yolanda.”
“Yolanda, has been an amazing guide and coach on both personal and professional matters. She creates a plan to your needs, aligns to your objectives and goals, and asks the right questions for you to think about. You get so much out of every session. I highly recommend her services.”
“I have found the coaching experience with Yolanda helpful beyond my expectations. I attended the first session with a transactional mindset thinking the goal would be to leverage Yolanda’s experience to improve my communication style and become a better manager for my direct reports. The sessions have worked at a much deeper personal level (almost taking on the form of therapy!) encouraging me to stop and acknowledge my state of mind, understand why I react to events in certain ways and using the learning to promote different approaches to work and personal life in future rather than repeating existing cycles and experiences.”
“I had an opportunity to get to know Yolanda and have gone through few coaching sessions with her in last year. Always enjoyed and looked forward the conversations with her! I must say Yolanda has helped me discovered the other side of myself through the conversations, and many times her metaphor approach have led me to have deep self reflection!”
“Echoing what other clients of her have mentioned, Yolanda’s calm energy really helped me zoom out of my current challenges and focus on the bigger picture and long-term vision. To add to that, her razor-sharp intuition really helped me get to the bottom of things and make real improvements. Each time I have a session with her, I find answers to my questions – questions I didn’t even know I had before talking with her.
Can’t recommend her enough.”
“Yolanda is an outstanding listener, she doesn’t prescribe or direct. She lets you open up and discover yourself. Think of her as the one who holds up the mirror to you and from time to time she polishes the surface so you can see clearly. Thank you, Yolanda, I highly recommend you to others who can benefit from you.”
“Yolanda is a superb coach who is very empathetic, intelligent, and articulate. I approached her for career discussions but our coaching conversations went beyond just career.
Her coaching sessions were deeply reflective, tapping on my deeper consciousness, encouraging me to inquire about my personality traits, values, and beliefs behind my career choices and job suitability. This experience was life-transforming, to say the very least, and introduced me to the person within, who I had always ignored. This is the power of Yolanda’s coaching.
Being an ex/ recruiter, successful corporate professional herself, she has this immense ability to connect the dots and guide one to completely novel and powerful perspectives. If you are looking for a career/life coach, look no further. I would definitely recommend Yolanda!!”
“I benefited tremendously from the coaching sessions with Yolanda as she helped me reframe the way I think and approach my career.

This powerful perspective helped me look at challenges as new opportunities for growth.”

“It only takes a few minutes to understand the value Yolanda brings as a coach.
She has exceptional listening skills, and her broad experience makes her questions and reflections absolutely on point. She always finds great metaphors that resonate with me, and help me find new ways to approach important questions and decisions about my career.
2020 was a tough year for my company, and the pandemic ended up opening many options for me (doubling down, moving on, etc.). Yolanda has helped me to map those options, and to consider how the different paths align with my long term vision. I would definitely recommend having a chat with Yolanda if you want to reflect on your career.”
“Yolanda has been very helpful in this journey to self discovery and growth. Through very sharp questions and reflections she provided a space for me to step back and evaluate my thoughts processes, helping me to notice my blind spots. We used a lot of metaphors and imageries to concretise some of my discoveries. It was particularly impressive as she always manages to find an image to describe the irony of some beliefs I have been holding that were clearly unhelpful to my growth.”

Her empathetic coaching style and talent in guiding with metaphors held space for me to explore my reservations and find clarity in my next steps”

Her insights and expertise have provided me with a fresh perspective and have greatly enhanced my way of looking at things and even helped me understand myself better. The clarity and depth of her explanations have truly been a game-changer for me. I am certain that I will carry these learnings with me throughout my life, and they will continue to shape my path long after my time at INSEAD.
Thanks Yolanda for being an exceptional guide, mentor, and sounding board. Your contributions have made a lasting impact on me, and I am truly grateful.“

I really enjoyed our sessions and would like continue to use her services as I progress in my professional and personal ventures.”
“Yolanda is the great Coach in my career experience, who helped me to open my mindset with her professional skills and crossed knowledge. She has diversified background and experience, it is very fabulous for her work. Yolanda is humble, kind with eastern wisdom. We had the conversation on family, work and life, always gave me the aha moment and opened the windows into my life, I am appreciated for her help, I understood the direction from my inner circle. She also helped me to know the advantage neutrally, Taichi is the word between ours. I strongly recommend her to you, she will be the right person for someone facing life challenges or steps to your new goal.”
“Yolanda is really an insightful & powerful coach, inspiring my self awareness and deep thinking in a comprehensive and effective manner.
During my leadership program, she helped me to view my situations from a different angle; I now see myself more caring about people through multiple communication approach, trusting my teammates more through delegation and better engage empathy when dealing with tough communication.
I would say the coaching as a journey of Self-Inquiry, which is highly beneficial to my leadership development.“
“Spent several months with Yolanda as my executive coach, and wow! She was exactly what I needed as a coach during my period of change, personal exploration and career development. Rather than “instructing” you what to do and giving you “model templates” to improve your Linkin profiles (like what other coaches promised), she was good at listening, better at asking you self-probing questions, and best at offering you advice and insights that makes you think and evaluate yourself. I have benefitted immensely from these sessions and would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs career mentoring to lift themselves up to the next level. Thank you Yolanda, and all the best in your own continuing personal pursuit to be the best in your field!”

“Yolanda’s coaching session definitely put me at ease and got me thinking more objectively about my own concerns, leading to finding solutions on my own while engaging with her. It’s powerful and effective.”
“As we started the session, Yolanda mentioned that it sounded like I had ‘weaved’ uncertainties and questions in terms of my career development in one big mess- making that I was not enjoying spending any time on my job search at all, avoidant and stressed about finding the right job.
In one hour, Yolanda was able to help me come up with simple steps for myself to take action on, while most importantly making me realize that I was making it a heavy and very serious task.
