The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as ''partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership.''
Each of you is an expert in your own life and career. As a coach, I will partner with you and provide the structure and process of coaching to assist you in creating your desired future. I will ask questions to promote your self-reflection and improve self-awareness, and sometimes, I may also challenge you. The coaching is designed to facilitate the creation/development of your personal, professional, or business goals and develop and carry out a strategy/plan to achieve those goals. The result of coaching is often transformational. As a coach, I will hold a safe space for you and remain non-judgmental.
If you want to take advantage of an opportunity or challenge, feel “stuck” on the path to achieving your goals, or simply believe there’s something more to discover in your personal or professional life, partnering with a professional coach could benefit you.
Client Testimonials‘’Working with Yuki helped me to get to where I am today in my professional and personal life. Her coaching sessions provided me with the accountability, focus, and clarity that I was seeking. As a coach, she is patient, knowledgeable, and insightful. The coaching experience for me was filled with assessments, brainstorming sessions, time spent workshopping ideas, and resources that helped me find the career and live a life that I love.’' - E.M. ‘’The coaching experience guided by Yuki has been great and extremely helpful in finding my way into the future after retirement from my current job when I would like to stay active for some more years. The coaching sessions made me think about realistic and practical options for work and business, which were in front of me, just hiding behind the fog of the day-to-day activities of my current job. I am now actively planning and implementing all the necessary for my after-retirement life with a great level of motivation and clarity. This would not have been possible without the invaluable coaching support from Yuki. Thanks to Yuki so much! I will keep the sessions up while progressing into the future full of optimism! ‘’ - T.M. ‘’My wife suggested I use a career coach, which in my field is not used so often, since the career path is rather simple: complete medical school, enter residency, begin a job in a hospital or clinic post residency, and keep working until you retire and rarely is there any transition. For me, my path was different. I am entering into the arena of humanitarian work (in the field; full time) which few of my colleagues do, and so needed a coach to guide me. Yuki was very attentive, listened to all my concerns, gave me things to consider and also took the time to conduct a mock interview! She is patient, thorough and responsive to her clients requests and concerns. Yuki has become a friend, and is someone who I will keep close ties with throughout my humanitarian career.’’ - C.F. ''Yuki-- Good active listener. Good thinker. Patient and calm.
Yuki asks pertinent questions and utilizes all information she receives to shape the profile of her client. Through a holistic approach, she helps her clients recognize their skills and potential. That process provides a tool not only for finding a new career but also for exploring new hobbies or interests since these needs come along with a new environment. Through her coaching, I was reminded that we can always do much more than we can imagine.'' - J.L. "I wanted to let you know that the performance review went really well. I implemented your advice and aligned my performance history and objectives with the departmental objectives. I was just notified that a raise and bonus are forthcoming. Thank you so much for your guidance!" - N.T. ''Yuki beautifully balances curiosity and insight to help her clients move forward. She holds the space for deep reflection and sharing, asking targeted questions to help uncover new ideas and opportunities. I thoroughly enjoyed being coached by her!'' - L.L.
