CEO Today - Executive Coaching Awards 2022

Victoria experience and mindfulness training set me apart from most business coaches. Now, several years later, the business has grown to a full-time organisation that reaches professionals all over the world.

In those conversations, people would often share their work challenges and goals and ask me for help. Since I did not feel comfortable just giving advice, I enrolled in a coaching certification program. I did this while I was in a fast-paced sales role, traveling around the country and flying thousands of miles each month. I could not ‘wait for the right time’ because it felt like people were waiting on me to get better at asking curious questions and creating a space for them to find their own solutions.
