· 03/25/19 · Coaching Intro

Svetlana immediately made me feel at ease, and was able to quickly establish a foundational understanding of what I'm looking for, even though I hadn't been able to quite articulate it myself.


· 03/13/19 · Executive Plan

My coaching sessions with Svetlana has been unique. I have been working with Svetlana for the last five months and - we mutually work together on a desired outcome. She has helped me explore different actions and shifted my perspective. Our session today uncovered what I have been doing for some time and haven't explored in the last several weeks. In most sessions, she will pose " What will that look like or feel like (subjective or objective)" During our sessions, we often experiment, iterate, and improve. In today's session I was able to work through some roadblocks and Svetlana gave me some tangible real-life advice on what I can do better.

I really enjoyed my time with Svetlana! I instantly felt comfortable sharing my story with her, and she really helped frame the obstacles that are facing me in a way that resonated with me. Thanks to the session I have a renewed sense of confidence in my skills, an action plan for how to approach upcoming interviews and a new way of approaching situations that typically make me feel uncomfortable. If you're on the fence about coaching, I highly recommend scheduling at least 30 minutes to see how much of a difference it can make!
