Clients

I highly recommend Sharmin as an executive coach. She has helped me scale my organization and become a next-level leader in the past few months. She does this by asking great questions and taking the time to understand you as an individual. By doing this, she has great insight into what you need to change and/or enhance with actionable, specific feedback and recommendations. If you are looking to take the next step as a leader, I recommend you work with Sharmin.

The session (team coaching) was very powerful as we did some deep sharing and exploring together. We collectively realized that we would like to move toward a more collaborative way of being and working together as a team. We committed to continuing to explore it by asking questions about our process as we go along and engaging in occasional developmental sessions that are not centered around checking off tasks.
I am very encouraged about the shift we are on the edge of, and I am grateful to you for your observations and the nudges. You are a very good coach! Thank you, Sharmin, for your wisdom, support, and encouragement.

I had the pleasure of working with Sharmin as an executive coach. Going into the program, I was skeptical of what to expect from the engagement. However, working with her has been one of the most transformative and important career investment decisions I’ve ever made. After a few meetings, we could connect on a different tier. She unearthed my inner core through thoughtful reflection and reasoning to stay true to my values. She is truly a force of nature and showed me that I could benefit from coaching when I perhaps asked her one time what to expect from this venture. Now I can say it’s transformational to put things into practice and observe the results play out.

We started working together on this journey with a more traditional approach, setting goals, writeups, etc. Soon, I realized it was not about following a model or process but about exercising it as a day-to-day action. Sharmin diligently increased my awareness, convictions, and reasoning and effortlessly made me apply that to business goals. I realized that application and putting things in motion became so easy and natural (to bring forth one own inner strengths that all of us possess). My goals just fell in place and will continually help me become a better leader.

She’s a delight of personality, and I am humbled by how much she genuinely cares about the person she works with. She was dedicated to moving me forward. I admiringly recommend Sharmin to anyone who needs help with executive coaching.

Sharmin helped me see my blind spots and helped me grow as a leader in ways that I never imagined. Instead of running me through a canned curriculum, it helped me discover the best path to learn and grow. As a result, I developed habits that will make me a better professional leader and a better and more fulfilled person.
