What makes Yoshita stand out as a coach is her calming and compassionate presence, that enables people to lower their barriers, trust easily and share what is truly on their mind. Combined with that, her rich corporate experience allows her to quickly pick up the business aspect and talk her client’s language. 

Here is what a couple of  Yoshita’s clients have to say

“I had the opportunity to work with Yoshita on a leadership development program employed for a group of budding talent within our organization … She has a unique ability to connect with every participant at the core level and then help facilitate the growth. I personally experienced the transformation of all the individuals who went through this program. She was precise, encouraging, thought provoking, got them out of their comfort zones and importantly, held them accountable.”
