Introduction

Işılay, multi-talented and multi-skilled with a diverse education and working background, was always aware of her passion for inspiring change in people.

Starting out informally coaching team members, colleagues and friends, Işılay decided to invest in a full-time coaching career to be able to provide her clients with the support they need. In 2016, after finishing her studies of “The Art and Science of Coaching”, she began her career as a coaching professional.

Işılay’s Executive Coaching practice is preceded by 15 years of high level managerial positions at Standard & Poor’s Index and Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services where she dealt with international companies and over 100 stock markets. Her Wall Street experience puts her in a unique position to understand challenges and identify opportunities for the business leaders of today.

Prior to her finance career, Işılay worked as a Registered Nurse in the Intensive Coronary Unit in The American Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey where her quick response and critical thinking skills were invaluable.

In her free time she volunteers for art projects, children’s and educational causes, travels, reads, bikes and loves creating art in her pottery studio.

If you are looking for an executive coach and mentor who is in it for you, Isilay is it! Isilay's expert ability to listen, consume, consider, and construct have been instrumental in forging pathways to opportunities, networks to navigate, and principles and protocols to hone. She epitomizes what I expected in an executive coach and corporate mentor. She's excelled on Wall Street and done so after a significant career transition from nursing. As such, she speaks from first-hand experience when it comes to corporate ethos, changing sectors, and purposely taking a career turn at the mid-career stage. Bottom line, she is multidimensional in experience, approach, vision, and perspective. Across the board, her constructive support, positive demeanor and outlook, and steadfast professionalism are impeccable - and PERFECT for the role of executive coach and corporate mentor.

If you are looking for someone whose approach to coaching is holistic— balancing the emotional, and analytical— Isilay is the one. What makes her an effective coach is the fact that she listens, and understands a situation before giving her insights. Isilay appreciates, and respects multiple viewpoints, which are important attributes for a personal and/or professional coach. Furthermore, she is warm, humble, and excels at mentoring you while you write your story.

Isilay is a warm, engaging and intelligent person with a natural talent to coach people with diverse backgrounds. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Isilay. She is patient, positive and an excellent listener while offering multiple approaches to challenges and remaining encouraging. Isilay has years of experience working in the financial services which contributes to her sharp and analytical consideration of problems and issues. Isilay’s coaching techniques enable the recipient to feel as if one is figuring out the answers on their own. If you are searching for a professional and/or personal coach who can offer insights into how you can aspire in your career or life, Isilay is the perfect coach for you!
