International Opera Signer
When I say I work with high achievers of all kinds, I mean it. You may be asking yourself, “What does Bob know about being an opera singer?”. Well, thankfully, Karin didn’t need any help with her voice. She’d won all kinds of awards in Sweden by the time I met her, but didn’t know how or if she even could take her career to the next level.
I, on the other hand, watched her perform solo at the Royal Opera House in Stockholm, saw her create the kind of magic only the great performers can, and knew immediately she would be a star.
In our first meetings, she tiptoed around the idea that maybe one day possibly in the distant future if a bunch of things went right then she’d have something of a chance to sing on a bigger stage to a broader, international audience. It’s called Impostor Syndrome, ever heard of it? It’s where you’re asked to perform solo at the Royal Opera House and still think you’re not good enough.
She said to me, "I only want to sing. It doesn’t matter if one person is listening or thousands". I told her, "if it doesn't matter, let's shoot for thousands".
I coached Karin for two years. We worked through her limiting beliefs, her doubts, we worked on how to lean into that Imposter Syndrome and enjoy the sparkle of new experiences, and we worked out how to turn her dreams into practical goals.
Karin Osbeck has now performed title roles around the world. Most recently– the title role in Handel’s Rinaldo at Lincoln Center in New York City and The Lokhalle in Göttingen, Germany. She graduated from The Juilliard School's Artist Diploma in Opera Studies program on a full scholarship.
Software Engineer - Motivational Speaker
Aditya was a successful software engineer at a large corporation when we started coaching. He could have easily kept grinding away and climbing the ladder, but Aditya had another lifestyle in mind. He knew he wanted something else, he just just couldn’t quite put his finger on it.
We talked about how fulfilling his work was and wasn’t and what would need to happen to improve the situation. We talked about building a great team and key project management skills. But my intuition told me there was something else going on. Finally I asked, "if money wasn’t a concern, what would you do to bring yourself joy?".
It’s such a big question, and I think it surprised us both how quickly the answer came-
"I’d sublet my condo, get rid of everything, and travel the world.”
WHAT?? That didn’t sound like a career project manager and corporate engineer to me. Why didn’t he tell me this before?
Because he hadn’t told anyone. He felt like he couldn’t tell anyone.
It’s such a funny thing, how we keep our deepest ambitions a secret, like they could get us into trouble. He thought it was a crazy idea, and I said ok, let’s do the spreadsheet and find out just how crazy it is.
As it turned out, it was all possible. He was able to rent the condo, he had some savings, and we came up with a plan to make this new life sustainable. All he needed to do was give himself permission.
Not everyone who comes to me about project management secretly wants to drop everything and start something new, but Aditya did.
After building a reputation and winning awards as a keynote speaker, he decided to become a coach himself. He has clients all over the globe, who he helps step out of their comfort zone, shift their mindset, and find their own paths to happiness.
Aditya and his wife now travel the world together, living their dream life.
