The minute I understood my personality type (INFP), life became easier and much more fulfilling.
Uncovering my personality type helped me to understand myself better and be true to myself. The most empowering and liberating moment was when I stepped into my power and claimed my strength to navigate in a loud world. I found the right tools to make my personality type work for me and not against me.
Before becoming a quiet leadership coach, I was successful in the corporate world and served clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. I loved accessing my creativity and intuition, problem-solving, leading teams and building strategies. But other parts of my job took its toll on my energy: constant business meetings, fast paced working environment, long working hours and being around people all day with no solitude time at all.
Honouring my desire for deeper fulfillment, I made the difficult decision to quit my job and embark on a voyage of self-discovery. Finding out who I was and what I was capable of gave me the confidence to pursue my coaching certification and change careers.
Now, I’m a Quiet Leadership Coach, named among the Top Six Life Coaches in Vancouver by Crowd Wellness.
I serve on the board of directors for the International Coach Federation (ICF) and teach at various institutions including Rhodes Wellness College and Spring Activator. I’m also the founder of Vancouver Quiet Leadership Meetup, which is one of the fastest growing and the only leadership group dedicated to introvert personality types in British Columbia.
Jumping into the unknown was a huge risk, but the reward of connecting to my purpose and values has been worth every moment of doubt, insecurity and fear.
