Former Tech leader, Coach & Mentor (mid-level & transitioning Tech Managers & professionals), writer, photographer, creative. Boiledbeanstudio

I am a former tech leader turned leadership coach and mentor (specialising in mid-level & transitioning Tech Managers & professionals). I am also a writer, thinker, observer, photographer, and creative. I live in Berlin, Germany.

My educational background is in software engineering and I have nearly 15 years of corporate work experience in Technology. My work experience spans various roles in diverse cultures across quite a few cities of the world. This has given me deep experience and insights into how people work in different roles and in different settings. Because I transitioned from a tech job into creative freelancing, I also have years of rich creative experience in writing, editing and photography. My insights on work and life come from my varied experience. I am always learning and I love to share what I learn with others. My favourite way to learn is by teaching. I like helping and I try to do so in an empathetic, non-judgemental, non-authoritative manner.

If you think you'll benefit from my perspective and experience, do reach out. I'd be happy to share what I know.

The session was more than helpful. Thank you for all the guidance that I have been looking for. Very insightful. Loved the way, she told me how important is it to break down my strengths and where to correctly place them on my resume. Also, how important is to have the right content with clarity. Looking forward to more sessions with her. Thank you for being so humble and patient in explaining everything.

Atomic Habits
James Clear

Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights. Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field. Learn how to: • make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy); • overcome a lack of motivation and willpower; • design your environment to make success easier; • get back on track when you fall off course; ...and much more. Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits--whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.
