Search Growth Lead Central Europe at Google, Germany
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Meera.
A completely new world has opened up for me! I am so much more aware of my emotions. For example, I now realise when my urge to be perfect at everything comes up, and that it’s my fear of self-judgement and judgement of others at play. I now have techniques to deal with them.
Also I have reframed my fear of failing. I am now embracing failing as a learning experience. I am experimenting and feeling excited about tackling new opportunities and challenges at work. I am not afraid to fail!
In contrast, before I approached Meera, throughout my career, I suffered from imposter syndrome – doubting my skills and talent, and thinking that I have succeeded due to luck. There was a lot of self doubt and insecurity. Essentially that meant that I was holding myself back from career opportunities because I believed I couldn’t do it. And I was waiting for the moment my colleagues or managers would find out that I got here due to luck.
As a result of coaching, I am confident about myself and my leadership qualities. I am much more forward thinking and strategic in my day to day at work. I feel like I am walking up a staircase and observing things more clearly than before, and not feeling afraid to act based on what I observe.
Others are observing the change in me too, they say that I come across as more confident in my abilities and more energetic.
The whole coaching experience has been professional, but without losing sight of me as a person, challenging, eye opening. She is always very structured, goal and action oriented. Meera was always approachable when I needed support outside of my scheduled sessions. Coaching helped me move closer to my next career goal, build visibility and trust with my leadership. It has opened career opportunities for me. I don’t think I would be there without working with Meera.
I feel so much gratitude. I would 100% recommend her, it was 100% worth my time and money!
