“After working with giant tech companies like Amazon and BBC, I progressed from a developer to a project manager and later became the head of delivery. As I began managing a team, I felt that I was bringing many of my bad habits to work like being passive, avoiding conflicts, not speaking about my opinions and I was unable to manage difficult situations and relationships. I conveyed my tensions to my HR and she suggested to try coaching and had put me in touch with a Swedish organization that coached in English as well. I joined an 8-month coaching program that blew my mind and it helped me to understand the root of my problems and find solutions to the same so I added those teachings to the leadership role I played. After seeing the progress in me, I thought, why not start my own coaching, and now 4 years after, I am happily able to assist different individuals with leadership coaching and consultancy.” – Mamta
