My name is Johannes and I'm passionate about empowering others to reach their full potential. What brought me to coaching is a long story, but my education is originally in engineering research. I have been working in tech since 2016 and am currently pursuing a masters in organizational psychology. I have also been the main organizer of a Boston-based Meetup group since 2017 that focuses on psychology and personal development.
I've always been tuned in to the human experience, interpersonal dynamics, organizational culture, how power is used individually and collectively, the role of emotional intelligence in management and teams, etc. All of these things are facets of our modern, fast-paced lives that influence us in complex ways. I enjoy collaborating with clients to unpack it all so they can better navigate their lives.
I am also a highly sensitive person (HSP), which is a trait first described by Dr. Elaine Aron back in the late 90s and is found in 20% (!) of the general population. It just means that I have heightened intuition and generally feel everything more strongly. It gives us access to deeper insights. And empathy! Which is sorely lacking in the world these days. You don't have to be an HSP yourself to work well with me, but if you are, I'll understand you in a way others probably won't.
Thanks so much for checking me out here on Noomii. Please shoot me a message if you have questions or are interested in working with me.

I came across Noomii after looking at some career advice posts on Reddit. Though I have a Commerce Degree (Accounting and Finance), I pursued various jobs in my life - accounts, admin, sales, customer service and building houses/renovations. I was unsure where to go next and what would truly make me happy so I considered getting a careers coach on Noomii. I filled in the form and they soon put me in touch with Johannes Traa. He was empathetic and listened well to what I had to say. He thoughtfully asked questions and provided suggestions and recommendations as to what I should think about and what steps I should take next. Besides our sessions, he also emailed me resources and tests which were very helpful in helping me to see my skills, experience and personality and which jobs would best satisfy me and ones which I'd do well in. He then discussed my results and research in the following sessions and provided encouragement, advice and further resources to help me. I'd definitely recommend him to get a better insight for those who aren't sure about what sort of career would suit them.Ian D'lima
Johannes is an excellent mentor with a knack for quickly inferring sources of conflict. Sessions with him have been immediately productive for me. Specifically, Johannes suggests personalized and methodical strategies in navigating conflicts and prioritizing tasks. He is great at following up on progress to ensure accountability. Overall, he is patient and has an upbeat demeanor which makes sessions with him a positive experience.Jalihal
