Whatever brought you performance until now will not take you further.
Starting with the emails you write to stakeholders other than your boss. How do I know? I used to lead a team of 180 people. Being accountable for their performance gives me a pair of magic glasses that highlights your self-sabotaging practices and how to shift them. I've also been mentoring enough start-up pearls for an extra-long Chanel necklace. They were mostly in wellbeing and emotional intelligence, which comes naturally given my current studies in neuroscience at King's College in London. When I coach you, you will lean on my business, psychology, and entrepreneurial assets.
Get ready to experience the radically human you.
Think of it as a virtual coffee. 30 minutes.
I speak five languages and work in three: English, German, and Russian. Russian because I was born in Ukraine. German, because I moved there with my parents when I was 14. And English because I took one year to travel and learn in Australia when I was 21.
In the meantime, I have lived and worked in 8 different countries and cultures, with a brief stop to get my MBA from London Business School.
If you don't speak up in meetings and find your peers put forth your idea as their own, I've been you. I also know what it's like to sit composed through conference calls while your inner voice shouts "I want my share of things." Or "is this all there is for me?" If you want that voice to start humming Hakuna Matata, it's time to get out of your comfort zone. It may require you completely change your behaviors. Or directions.
