Great leaders are self-aware and see things multidimensionally. The most exciting thing for me is supporting them on this path of constant breakthroughs and watching them grow and transform themselves.

She has qualified as a Professional Certified Coach and Organizational Relationship System Coach. During the past five years she has also studied and practiced existential psychotherapy and is a practiced meditator.

卓越的领导者能够不断加深自我认知,并从多个维度看问题。我很高兴可以陪伴领导者走在这条不断自我挑战突破的道路上,给予其最大的支持,看到他们持续成长蜕变是我最兴奋的事。
