FIRST THINGS FIRST,
I can create transformations for emerging leaders and high potentials.
How many people do you know that learned leadership and career development in school?
In my experience, it tends to be a skill learned with time, so when a new and mid-level leader rises up through the ranks for success in a tactical role, it makes sense that it would take them a while to get their bearings and reach their full potential. I provide guidance and listen, reflect, and challenge them to explore new possibilities and ways of thinking so they can accelerate that learning and become confident new leaders long after our work is done.
It is not an easy process, but the result is a leader who is confident, insightful, and inspired to drive their organization to success for the rest of their career. And I promise to make it fun, too!
WHAT MAKES ME
I was a mid-level manager with a large team and many frustrations.
I understand how lonely it is at the top and how leaders can often be afraid to show they don't have the answers because I was there. And I have 20 years of expertise in leadership coaching and development, women's leadership, culture and facilitation across 4 different industries with leaders and individuals of all levels.
I am not just coaching from a book. I have the rare ability to blend experience, theory, and effectiveness to come up with customized plans that work in the real world.
I am true, unbiased thought partner for my clients, allowing them to feel heard in a genuine way, yet challenging them to innovate and see things differently. I don't do a prescribed approach or canned solutions, but rather meet people where they are at and we explore the solution that feels right now.

SOME NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SAID
ABOUT WORKING WITH ME...
L. Collins // HR DIRECTOR
I first met Sohee during our time working together at Warner Bros. Entertainment. Sohee took the lead on a pro Bono project we were working on with a non-profit organization, and led the discussions around leadership development and much needed cultural shifts. Her style of engaging the audience was impressive to watch, and her methods resulted in visible changes in the organization, almost immediately. I think Sohee is an invaluable resource, and an incredible professional to partner with. Although we no longer work together, I still seek Sohee's insight and expertise on a variety of topics. I look forward to a day where we can work together again.
S. Bailey // Director of Branding & Engagement
Sohee was originally contacted to provide organizational development services for our company. As part of that, we quickly saw the value of also utilizing her for executive coaching. One of Sohee’s strengths is her ability to keep it real. Her sessions were challenging, but her relatable approach was incredibly helpful in pushing me outside of my comfort zone. She is super insightful and very focused in every session and can provide you with the guidance and tools you need to further your leadership goals. I highly recommend her.
G. Teo // Head of Human Resources
Sohee is a talented consultant and someone I would highly recommend. Her approach is both engaging and flexible and she is able to partner with you to come up with solutions that fit the need. Sohee was instrumental in our culture assessment and worked with our executive leadership team to help us move forward strategically.
N. GARDINER // SVP, Finance & Ops
I had the opportunity to work with Sohee on a very challenging business transformation initiative that involved evolving our organization and how we operate to be more nimble and strategically managed to drive profitable growth. Business transformation is an ongoing journey and Sohee is a proven business leader, who in my experience, has the right talent, tools and temperament to provide any company with the boost they need to jump start its organizational effectiveness.
M. HINES // VP Talent and Organization Development
Sohee is one of the most innovative, strategic leaders I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has an uncanny ability to actively listen and ask the right questions…and she intuitively knows when and how to probe to uncover underlying issues. Most importantly, Sohee presents tailored recommendations whilst keeping her client’s best interests in mind. She’s a strategic thinker, executes for results, and brings an innovative mindset to any project she takes on. I would jump at the opportunity to work with Sohee again, and I’m sure our professional paths will cross in the future.
M. BARKER // Sr. Manager, Global Inclusion, Diversity & Engagement (GIDE)
Sohee possesses the right mix of strategic consulting skills and fresh, practical insights in the challenging arena of inclusion and diversity. She partnered with our organization to develop and facilitate an important, high-profile workshop which was executed very successfully with great care. I appreciated her authenticity, professionalism, and her ability to execute for impact.
L. GRANT // Sr. Manager, Curriculum Development
Sohee possesses an innate ability to adjust appropriately to client needs and requests while still ensuring their success. She has an engaging and professional approach with clients to understand their business requirements, set expectations and reach agreement on an action plan. I received feedback from numerous clients that it was a pleasure working with Sohee, and she gets things done. She also does not shy away from challenges, but approaches them in an informed and respectful way with the aim to establish a win-win situation.
J. NAKAI // HR Director
I had the pleasure of working with Sohee on a special project with our Directors' team. Her professionalism, expertise and insight allowed her to navigate complex issues with grace and effectiveness. I highly recommend her..
C. REYNOSO // Operations Manager
I had the opportunity to work with Sohee as a leadership coach and she provided very insightful and useful strategies that were simple yet effective for me to try with my teams to improve communication and execution. Sohee did a great job investigating in order to create a customized process for me and it was highly effective. I would definitely recommend Sohee for any strategic organizational purposes within any company.
J. WEBER // COO
As a small, early-stage company, we move quickly, have big goals and are committed to creating a great culture for our growing team. We worked with Sohee at a critical time in our company’s development. She helped us get really clear on how our leadership team could optimize and harness what was working well, and address head on what wasn’t so that we could create a strong foundation—both in terms of culture and in terms of process—on which to continue building. Sohee quickly gained our team’s trust, and was both professional and accessible in her approach. Sohee continues to be a partner and thought leader that helps to guide us through challenging and pivotal circumstances. I highly recommend working with her!
A. Alban // PRESIDENT
I highly recommend Sohee as she brings a unique perspective and experience to leadership coaching. She is part coach and part management consultant which is a value-add that helped drive our business forward. Sohee interviewed all of our leaders and stakeholders to provide a 360 view of the leadership opportunities for growth and innovation. Our leaders and business benefited from Sohee coaching and advice, a true win/win outcome. She is easy to work with and hits the ground the running.
K. Sylvain//PERSONAL COACHING CLIENT
I have had the pleasure of working with Sohee as my coach and have experienced incredible transformation in my personal and professional life because of her holistic approach. Sohee has given me practical tools to use for a lifetime and has helped me develop sustainable habits and mindset. Sohee continues to be a valued source of wisdom and expertise!
My employer connected me with Sohee for coaching sessions as I was feeling a bit stuck in my career. Sohee provided me with the resources needed to achieve my goals in becoming an effective leader. Her trust, guidance and intuition reminded me of my true potential and I am forever grateful! I highly recommend Sohee!!
As I was starting my first position as an Art Director, I could not have met Sohee at a better time. Sohee's coaching was a careful but efficient guide into thinking about the bigger picture in terms of my responsibilities as a leader, and how to balance my positive traits with professionalism. Her guidance not only gave me a clearer path to problem solving and leading others, but also equipped me with tools to continue to maintain this mentality even beyond our coaching period. It's even more thrilling that Sohee's coaching has positively influenced my personal life due to her help in rewiring the way I think and communicate with others to be more optimistic, confident and effective.
