Starting my career in corporate consulting felt like I had a blank slate. I could wipe clean all my insecurities and start fresh with confidence. How wrong I was! If anything, it amplified. Often, I’m told to speak up, that I’m too quiet, that I need to try to fit in more, leading me to constantly try to be someone I’m not. Of course, all of this advice was given with the most well-meaning intention, but it backfired. Eventually, it made me doubt my professional abilities and eroded my confidence massively. I felt I had to maintain a positive and happy facade, and said yes to almost everything to prove my value. It was mentally and physically exhausting.
At the same time, I came across an opportunity to deliver career and leadership development for a global multinational client and immediately jumped at it. And that was the spark that led me to where I am today. Everything fell into place. I found my calling. I was so passionate about doing this that I managed to carve out a role within my company to do just that, delivering career coaching and leadership development for current and upcoming leaders. All the while being more ‘junior’ in grade. I created a career that I got excited about every day.
I decided I want to do this full time on my own terms. And on the cusp of a lucrative promotion, I resigned from my company with zero regrets. This shocked a lot of my colleagues. Because I am clear and confident of my worth and value, a title is no longer needed. This has been the best decision I have made in my career. So here I am.
I’m here to help you to become the leader you aspire to be, to create a career that you get excited about and to be the best version of yourself.
