I started the coaching session very skeptical. However, every session created miracles, made me more organized, planned and prepared for the next action around my objective. I set a goal to achieve within a year, but achieved it in just three months, and it was not an easy one. Meanwhile, on top I become more self-aware about myself, my thinking process, and my strengths. This thinking method is like a muscle and I plan to apply it rest of my life. Thank you, Yaprak.Marketing Professional
I have been fortunate enough to partner with Yaprak both in her capacity as the director of Human Resources of our organization and as a leadership coach. She has been a true business partner for me in tackling business challenges and a true coach for sharpening my leadership skills. Her capacity to leverage her innate ability to connect with people at all levels and her real world business experience to drive actionable change in both organizations and leaders alike is exceptional. Yaprak has helped me navigate a plethora of issues through a series of personal coaching engagements. Her ability to stay focused on what is important to me and discern complex issues into actionable, simple solutions through her attentive and purposeful questioning has created clarity of mind beyond my expectations. Through a meticulously designed program that built progressively on each session, we were able to get to the root of critical issues for me to be able to improve my situational leadership abilities and be more self aware. Yaprak is an exceptional leadership coach and she has significantly helped me improve my capabilities. She was not the first coach I have had through my 25 year career but she had the biggest impact.Cagatay Guler
Having coaching journey with Yaprak is an amazing experience and a great opportunity. She is a very experienced professional. Her supportive, focused, structured, action and result oriented approach drives very productive sessions. I left every session challenged, stretched, encouraged and inspired. I had always a concrete plan with multiple path forwards for both my professional and personal goals. She ensured the plans meet the expectations and make me feel comfortable. She is very caring and flexible. So that she easily adjust the conversations or discussion flow based on the need. Our journey helped me to build up my self-confidence, enhance my self-awareness, identify my values, strengths and personal barriers. I can find solutions faster than before without being trapped by the problem itself and staying focused on the goals.Asena Kok Yucebilgic
