“Yolanda has exceptional listening skills, and her broad experience makes her questions and reflections absolutely on point.”
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.

“This experience was life-transforming. It introduced me to the person within, whom I had always ignored.”
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!!

“Through Yolanda’s coaching, I am more capable to take action, feeling more secure and relaxed.”
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.
Through her coaching I feel I am better capable to take action, feeling more secure and relaxed about the adventure of finding a new job. Would highly recommend a session with Yolanda.

The approach is fun and it really helps me to isolate myself from the situation to look at things from a different perspective. I find her questions very inspirational; it helps me to get to know myself and my priorities better. Would definitely recommend Yolanda’s coaching sessions.

“Through the sessions, I have better clarity of my career roadmap and setting goals to reach my career milestones.”
Yolanda has been my career coach since the start of 2021. And it has been a very fruitful and collaborative journey since.
Yolanda is very friendly and approachable which makes sharing of problems/information much easier. By ensuring a safe space, I am able to share my values and personal problems which is linked to my career path and aspirations. During our consultations, she always probe me with the correct questions that steered me towards a deeper understanding of my thoughts. Through the sessions, I have better clarity of my career roadmap and setting goals to reach my career milestones.

“I managed to step out of my own trap and had better vision and action plan to work on.”
I really enjoyed the coaching sessions with Yolanda, I went in with lots of confusion about my current job, my future career, the potentially challenges I could be facing etc. Yolanda’s calm energy definitely helped and encouraged me to slow down and think more deeply throughout the session, I walked out of the first session with clearer vision, less stress and more things to look forward.
The following few sessions were just as productive and helpful. at the end I managed to step out of my own trap and had better vision and action plan to work on. I highly recommend Yolanda and will continue working with her to achieve my desired career goal.
