“It is so helpful in elected life, to emerge from all the important city issues, documents, meetings, phone calls, e-mails, letters, media and other public events, to take time to sit back, look at the big picture and decide how to be proactive rather than reactive.”
Yael has proven to be focused and multi-skilled as an Executive Coach. She asks the right questions to rekindle a desire for what deeply matters to me, and enables me to clarify my vision and values. She encourages me to be open to change, to be responsive to new opportunities, to reveal old patterns, and to build new patterns of beliefs and behaviors. Her effectiveness as a coach is attributed to her wisdom, compassion, and uncanny ability to be candid in offering clear feedback.
