I have benefited tremendously from Gebi's coaching. It’s very efficient that we set one specific topic every time and focus on the discussion. Our topics cover different stages for my career development, from how to balance work/life at the very beginning, to how to better work and communicate with my managers; how to switch roles from IC to lead; how to balance team’s resources on different projects and how to set long term goal for my career in the rapidly changing industry, etc. Gebi has coached me to step out of my comfort zone. I wish to get more coaching from her in the future.

It is a really great experience of having Gebi as my coaching. At the beginning I just suppose this is an English Learning Coaching, but I get more far more benefit than that. I'm facing Career path problems and Gebi helps a lot on that. What I really appropriate that Gebi helps me about: 1. Push me do something I should do but don't have enough courage to do so. (Push yourself out of your comfort zone) This makes me also judge my decisions: is this the right thing or the highest priority work? If so, why not do it now, don't give any excuse. And think carefully about your excuse, are they true? 2. Are you making any assumption? - Please make sure you are communicating with others without any assumption. - Do not say I supposeXXXX, please check it! 3. Show me the metrics, think at your boss's side - Collect metrics at the design beginning! 4. The priority!! - Don't let anyone handle your priority, define your goal first and then set the priority based on your own goal. 5. Growth MindSet - You will always be the one that you want to be. Looking back at these lessons, they somehow looks like 鸡汤. But in fact, Gebi helps me goes down into every detail of my problem, and we discuss why these problems, how to fix them and finally we get these solutions. I think I'm really lucky that I can get Gebi as my coach, and I will always suggest Gebi and this coaching problem to my friends.
