What Coaching Is?

Coaching is about you – your goals, your learning, and your growth. Together you and your coach will walk this journey together.

 Coaching is about learning – rather than teaching. You are the expert on your life. Your coach uses coaching techniques such as active listening, open questions, encouragement, challenging a bit, and always remaining supportive. All to assist you in discovering insights and taking next steps.

Coaching is about action – your action. Each session you will determine 1-3 actions steps you will take before the next session. You may be surprised how quickly you progress toward your goals.

 Coaching is about all of you – not just your work. We all know that changing old habits and thought patterns are difficult. Your coach recognizes these patterns and will support you as you change and grow

     Do you feel ready for a move in life, tired of going in circles.You want to gain clarity, then ignite sessions are for you..

    You recognise that there is dissisatisfaction in some areas of your life, but you hang in there, tolerate and go on. And some event or just plain exhaustion brings you to a breaking point, you cannot go further. There will be excuses of it not being the right time and other obstacles.

    Make the decision to take that first step in your transformation. Change looks like huge mountain climb, but with support and empathy,everyone has a chance for a full life.

    We help you transform in your work,relationships and habits or behaviour.


    Discover Your Purpose

     The Reason for your being – Purpose. Sounds mystical and distant. Sounds like something abstract and fuzzy. Well,when you know WHO you are, and WHERE you are going, and WHY you are doing what you do—you have the VISION to succeed, and the PASSION to proceed daily, regardless of situation or circumstance.

    Understanding your purpose and translating that in your life  will give you a clarity of what’s most important to you. We follow methodical coaching sessions using the COACH model to explore each of the areas that contribute towards your Purpose. At the end of these series of sessions you will have clarity to take steps in the right direction in your career, relationships and in life. 


    Students and Young Adults Support

    Our world is rapidly changing and a report issued by the Institute of future suggests that 85 percent of the jobs in 2030 is still not invented.Teens and Young Adults stepping into the world of preparing for the future find it daunting. There are so many things that were comfortable that is taken off and they face the pressure of preparing themselves for their vocation. How do we support our young generation for an uncertain future?

    Working with young adults from all over the world through the culture exchange programme helped me understand that skills like resilience,creativity,empathy, personal leadership and cultural intelligence must be priority over gaining academic excellence. Real world experiences play a top priority in this process.

    In ages past elders have led youth through rites of passage. A young person undergo a transition into adulthood through a coming of age activity. It often involves leaving the comfort of normal life and entering into situations where skills are pruned. On successful completion of the activity they enter back to their normal  but with skills needed to function as an adults.

    In the current times this process is school camps and internships. But the underlying psychological process is not addressed . This causes an inablity to express onself to the family and in school.

    We support teens and young adults talk through their struggles and discomfort of going through this transition. We help them assess skills they need to prune, get to know themselves bettr and use tools to embrace this process with empathy.

    We help them develop a good sense of identity,values and purpose that gives them clarity.

    Career Transition Support

    A transition could be triggered by an external change. For example, you could have lost your job, which could motivate you to step back from your busy life and assess if it is time to think about pursuing a latent passion/dream or shifting your work focus to have more meaning or balance for you.

    Or as an expat partner or love-pat you would have moved to a new country and finding your feet in this new beginning.

    Whichever place you are, transition is a process.  Taking the time of reflection and exploration can result in redefining What you do for work in relation to who you are and completely form a new path. 

    In order to build new, you need to dismantle the old and make a space to construct the new. This can be a daunting place. And we want you to have support as you explore this. 

    The individual coaching sessions focused on a career transition, will start with dismantling, seeking and finding answers to questions you have answered in a long while.
