Sarah had always been a beacon of guidance in her corporate role. For over two decades, she navigated the intricate world of finance in Singapore, Hong Kong and London, leading teams, and managing global projects.
Yet, as the years went by, a nagging feeling persisted. The spreadsheets and board meetings no longer resonated with her deeper purpose.
One evening, after a particularly gruelling day at the office, Sarah found herself at a local café in Singapore, lost in thought. She struck up a conversation with a stranger named Mia, who introduced herself as a professional coach. As Mia spoke about her journey, Sarah felt a spark of inspiration.
Sarah began to see the parallels between her role in finance and the world of coaching. She had always been a mentor to her team, helping them navigate challenges and reach their potential. The skills she had honed over the years—listening, guiding, problem-solving—were the very essence of coaching.
Taking a leap of faith, Sarah enrolled in GoMasterCoach coaching certification program. The journey was transformative. She learned not just the techniques of coaching, but also embarked on a journey of self-discovery. The program was rigorous, challenging her to introspect, to confront her fears, and to grow.
Months later, Sarah launched her coaching practice. Her clients ranged from young professionals at crossroads in their careers to seasoned executives seeking a deeper purpose. With each session, Sarah felt the profound impact of her work. Sarah's story is a testament to the power of change and the potential that lies in a second career in coaching. Like her, many professionals possess a wealth of transferable skills and experiences that can be channelled into coaching. It's a journey of not just guiding others but also discovering oneself.
For those standing at the crossroads of their careers, wondering if there's more out there, Sarah's journey offers inspiration. And sometimes, all it takes is a conversation in a café to set you on a new path.
Get inspired by Sarah, Simon, Krysta, Becca, Deborah, and many more.
