I have walked in your shoes! I have been a Software Engineer and manager. I know the challenges in the high-paced corporate culture and having a work-life balance.
Here are some scenarios when people come to me for coaching:
“I have been asked to show more executive presence. I have a hard time expressing my opinion confidently during a meeting, especially to those seniors in the ranks.”
“I have been asked to be more approachable. I think very fast; others can’t keep up. I get frustrated with them.”
“My team is not performing well. I end up doing most of the work. I am exhausted.”
“I have been doing well in my life. I worked hard and succeeded. I wish I had more time during the day to do everything up to my satisfaction.”
“I no longer enjoy my current role. I don’t know what else I can do. I am in a big dilemma.”
I sincerely appreciate Sharmin for how she guided me as my executive coach. She helped fine-tune my communication style according to the situation, including building my team and making critical presentations in front of a large audience. Coaching with her made a profound impact on my professional development. Sharmin Banu is incredibly talented in finding the root cause of the client’s challenges, yet she is a humble, passionate executive coach and a true leader.
Thank you for all the coaching you gave me through the previous year – it was absolutely fantastic. With your help and guidance, I was able to look into what I am doing and identify several areas that really needed to be addressed. I am very grateful for that!
I’ve been working with Sharmin for several months and am very pleased with the coaching relationship we’ve had. I did not know what to expect with leadership coaching, but Sharmin helped guide me through the formal and informal process to explore my personal-professional self. We cleared many milestones–as I’ve moved across the country and also changed jobs while working together. I asked Sharmin recently what were her goals as a coach, and she said “to make sure the person is confident and comfortable in their own skin” –and after working with Sharmin, I am!
