Get clear on what you care about most. Take effective actions. Achieve exponential outcomes and satisfaction.
Karen Tay is an Executive Coach who received her training with the Newfield Network. Through her coaching practice, she has worked with clients to achieve successful leadership transitions, create new professional futures, build their personal brands and improve relationships that matter to them.
While strongly focused on your goals and desired outcomes, Karen's coaching is not transactional: it aims at deep, personal transformation. Her coaching will help you take yourself out of the box, and see things in completely fresh ways. In turn, it requires your commitment to explore, learn and act.
Her clients have reported greater clarity and a sense of priorities when making decisions, momentum towards their professional and personal goals, a greater ability to flex across leadership styles while maintaining authenticity, and a deeper sense of peace and satisfaction.
How can I get the most out of coaching?
The first step is to contact Karen for a 45-minute conversation to clarify if your goals are best served through coaching. You will have the opportunity to share your goals, ask any questions you may have about coaching, Karen's experience, administrative issues and so on.
If you would like to continue into a coaching relationship, I generally recommend signing up for a starting package of five one hour-long sessions. We will meet every two weeks. From my experience, this arrangement gives us the runway to work on your goals in a deep and sustained manner, unlocking results for your personal and professional growth.
Having said this, a coaching relationship is always in service of you, the client. You may choose to terminate or extend the arrangement at any time, subject to the terms of the coaching agreement which we will draw up together.
I have some clients whose employers sponsor their coaching, as part of their professional development. I can share more about how these arrangements are typically structured.

How do I get started?
One of my clients, Graham P, puts it well:
A good starting point is to understand what coaching is not. The outcome of a coaching session is not that the coach diagnoses exactly what you should do, or what career path you should take. The role of the coach is to (supportively) question and challenge the way you have been thinking about your options, and to suggest alternative perspectives to help you find your own path or solutions.
To get the most out of it, you have to be prepared to be emotionally honest with yourself and to commit to trying out small exercises to see where new ways of thinking about problems/decisions can take you.
