‘I had 3 coaches during my corporate career. One good, one bad and one indifferent. I always wondered what it would be like to have a fabulous coach. A person who could be my sounding board, critic, cheerleader, consultant, guide, advisor. Someone who could keep up with me, understand my context, root for me, recognize the nuances and tell me the truth however difficult. A person who could mobilize the tools, techniques, models and frameworks to help me gain insight about myself and all aspects of my role. A coach who could help me to liberate all of my talents both at home and at work.

That was the coaching model I had in my mind when I trained in so many disciplines from straight up executive coaching at Columbia University, through to Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnosis, meditation, happiness, stress management techniques, and the study of food and its impact on our mood and performance’.
