The past six months working with Sharmin has been an eye-opener for me, as I have found my inner self and learned about what I feel internally can impact others around me. This has translated directly towards my professional life and how I conduct myself at work. My manager has told me on several occasions now about the positive changes she is observing. I have been more thoughtful in my approach while making sure I am doing the right by the organization. At a personal level, each session with Sharmin has led to learning new things about myself be it about how I want my life to be in 10-20 years to small changes I can do that will make me happy. Her small nudges in each session, have helped me in making things happen for myself that make me happy.
Sharmin helped me gain better insight into how my analytical mind worked alongside my strong but mostly unexpressed emotions and coached me how to express those emotions. This has not been an easy journey, but Sharmin has remained readily available and supportive while I work through the discomfort of being more expressive. It changed my interpersonal relationships with peers, my manager, and direct reports for better.
Sharmin is an excellent executive coach and I would recommend her to anyone looking to engage in leadership development. She helped me discover my career intention, which resulted in an accelerated path to a leadership role over a five-month period. Her coaching methodology is focused on professional and personal development, which is key to be an effective leader in today’s business climate.
Sharmin helped me reshape my thought process and approach to managing people and issues on a daily basis. Sharmin has also shown me the value of dedicating time to focus on being intentional and including all supporting team members in the journey. This has allowed me to leverage the collective group when trying to achieve goals. I would recommend Sharmin as a career coach to anyone that wants to take their career to next level.
