Please let me unfold my story, I think it might help you;
At the eleventh year of my corporatelife (year 2000) I stopped and questioned my self;
Who am I?
What experiences would i like to have during my active life?
How could I need to powerfully contribute to this world?
What is growth for me?
Answering the above questions, I never knew at that time, I’m crafting a powerful Vision for my way of being.
Looking back, I have chosen an untravelledpath.i.e Professional Coaching.And “Untravelled Path” in what way? I saw some books about coaching in British council resource centre in Colombo and then my eye met ICF, International Coach Federation the largest credentialing today in the world. With curiosity, I started exploring
What professional coaching is?
How it could help people?
Then creating larger vision, higher than self to be a Professional Coach and to create a community of ICF Credentialed Coach in Sri Lanka.
I knew there is an inherent risk in moving forward along an unknown path and many doubted, at the same time the energy and power I got form the Powerful vision and the support form loved ones and many new friends I met along the way.
I become the first ICF credentialed coach in Sri Lanka in 2012 and today I’m proud to serve my clients as a Professionally Certified Coach, PCC from ICF.
