I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have served as a career coach at Google for many years, interviewed over a hundred candidates at Google, and led the career development and promotion discussions for many professionals.
Here's a bit more about my background, and why I may be a fit for you.
After six years of business consulting at Accenture, I attended UCLA Anderson School of Management, getting an MBA in Entrepreneurship. I worked at several startups in various managerial and executive roles, and was the Founder and CEO of a startup.
When I joined Google 10+ years ago, I led a sales team of 25 people, responsible for over $100 million of revenue. Although I enjoyed leading the team to achieve quarterly sales quotas and growing our business, I realized that I was passionate about helping the members of my team in their career development. For example, I coached them on applying to MBA and other grad schools, landing more senior roles within Google, making a career change to other industries or companies, or finding a job in another city or country.
I started my own coaching business, Proactive Potential, to work with a small number of clients on weekday nights and on Saturday mornings (either in person in Manhattan, or by video-conference or phone).
I'm happy to offer a free 30 minutes coaching session so you can make an informed decision on which coach to work with. There are no strings attached to the free session, so you have nothing to lose by getting a free session.

Josh has taken a “solution oriented” approach, which involves working with me to objectively assess my personal situation (with empathy!), understand my career development goals and trajectory, as well as provide guidance to evaluate different options that can help balance my work and life. He really pushed me to think what I want to achieve in the long term and asked me to identify steps I can take to work toward that goal. I feel I have gain lots of confidence, encouragement and inspiration after the session.Min, Works in Strategy
I recently had the privilege of receiving a career coaching session from Josh. He is an excellent active-listener and was able to identify the underlying career challenges I have during our conversation. Josh also took on the role of a life coach as he provided me with feedback on family planning and improvement in interpersonal skills. Without a doubt, I would definitely recommend Josh to my friends and colleagues, who are looking for actionable steps to further develop their careers or planning their next big leap on a professional or personal level.Dave, Works in Technology
I felt that it was valuable to me since Josh at Proactive Potential was willing to listen and to understand the whole context of my questions & provided me with practical guidance. He shared with me a few points of wisdoms that I still remember now. His communication style was concise, clear and friendly where I felt very comfortable to talk about any issues with him. I strongly recommend Proactive Potential for any professional who wants to grow their career.Gradi, Works in Business Development
Josh is such a joy to work with. His compassion and strategic thinking really helped me navigate the ropes of my career jungle gym. Josh was not only emphatic, but he was also very resourceful and given me very specific pointers to resources that were helpful to me. Truly appreciate your time, wisdom & generosity.Mimi, Works in HR
I've had several career coaching sessions with Josh. He is one of the best career coaches I've ever met. He patiently listened to me, and helped me to analyze the situation. He guided me to see the broader picture for a long-term goal when I needed to make an important career decision. What I like about coaching with Josh was he didn't tell me exactly what I should do, instead he guided me through a series of meaningful questions & discussions. Thank you so much!Taro, Founder & CEO of a startup
Josh is the best coach I have encountered. He makes an extra effort to clearly understand my goals, outlines an actionable path towards achieving them, and most importantly, holds me accountable. I have learned a great deal from our interactions and have been able to create positive change as a result. I highly recommend Josh for his outstanding coaching abilities.Angela, Works in Strategy
I have had sessions over the past 1.5 years with Josh. I found the sessions to be both professionally and personally fulfilling. Josh enabled me to to clearly identify my goals and cut the noise. Josh listened to me very patiently, was able to read in between the lines, and helped me to look at the bigger picture. He is very easy to talk to and creates a comfortable and secure environment for the client. I would highly recommend him as a coach.HK, Works in Operations
Josh is an excellent coach. He stood out from other coaches I've had in the past due to his clarity, ability to ask thought-provoking questions, and holding the client accountable to an outcome. I did share and walk through the heavy decisions I faced in both life and work. He approached his coaching by mostly listening, but the questions he asked bridges from my various options to the overarching longer term goals. I felt that the coaching sessions were about me, the client, and he was helping me to think clearly through his questions. Most importantly, I was able to walk out from our discussion with clear actions which I ended up accomplishing. I would highly recommend Josh!Arnon - Works in Marketing
