Whether you are a Business Owner, Solopreneur, or Team Leader, you’re got a LOT going on and you need to focus your energy and resources on things that will have the greatest impact (usually in the shortest amount of time).
You have amazing products or services to offer and you’re great with people, but the truth is, the focus of your career has not been on facilitating, managing, and developing them.
I specialize in helping Entrepreneurs and Other Leaders to use their time efficiently and to be more productive and balanced, to make better decisions more easily, to motivate, lead, and coach their teams, to fix performance issues, to communicate collaboratively and with influence, and to reduce delays, errors, rework, and frustrations with colleagues and customers.
By supporting you to manage the “people side” I help you to bring amazing products and services to the world without losing yourself in the process.
Here’s What People Are Saying
Akiko, thank you for everything you are doing to add hope and sanity to our operations. Without your help, I do not know how we would be making out. I believe we are building something that will keep and motivate staff to excel long into the future. For all that you are doing for us. Thanks. – DW, CFO, April 2019
Akiko coached me remotely which was a very positive and productive experience. It must have been her calm and friendly demeanour that made me feel like I was wrapped into a light blanket of confidence and full attention, which allowed me to progress in a profound way. Leaving me all the space I needed, Akiko guided me through a variety of steps to explore and experience all potential alleys that would help me to reach my desired outcome. And at a given time she softly steered me towards the actions I was truly ready to take. Today I can say the impact of our session carries on, thanks to Akiko! Sandra Schmoldt, Corporate Communications Director, and Coach, July 2018
Akiko has helped me through some crucial transitions with my career and gave me personalized insight and direction that has transformed my life in many ways. She empowered me to seek work in the public sector to use my talents towards making positive social change and encouraged me as an entrepreneur to expand my leadership abilities and grow financial resilience. You definitely need her on yuour team of support to help you to create a work life that is a life work living instead of being eaten up and chewed up by your work life. Barbara S. Educator & Mentor, March 2018
