I met Sharmin when I was seeking a business coach after being promoted to a high role in my company. As a woman and as an employee without the depth of knowledge and experience of others in the industry, I was feeling intimidated, anxious, and had low confidence in owning my new role. However, my boss saw what I didn’t see in myself and encouraged me to get a business coach.
I met with a couple of coaches, but when I met Sharmin I immediately felt a great connection. She pushed me right away in the first session to work through not just the surface level feelings of ‘overwhelm’ that I was having, but to look further into myself to the root cause of those feelings. She helped me dig into my thought process and how those thoughts led to my feelings and actions or inactions. Sometimes hitting on uncomfortable feelings, Sharmin created a safe space to explore my thoughts and didn’t push her own agenda. It was always a focus on what I wanted to work on and what I felt like would help me move forward.
She was also very flexible with scheduling to make sure we could space out our time for maximum benefit. The tools and conversations we had helped me build confidence that was just lying under the surface. Even though I fall backward sometimes into my imposter syndrome or negative feelings, I try to remember the conversations and tools we explored, and those backslide don’t become too hard to redirect. I would definitely recommend Sharmin as a business coach with a holistic approach. Her calm presence and ability to uncover root causes would help anyone looking to make changes personally and professionally.
