I am South Korean and have lived most of my life across the US and the UK. My pronouns are she/her.
I help people do their best work by becoming the most powerful version of themselves. My expertise is in Product and Strategy, specifically in startups.
I have a soft spot for introverts because I am one myself.
Nice to meet you 👋
When I first started, I was insecure, nervous, and had major imposter syndrome. But now, I can actually say that I know what I’m meant to be doing.
Over the months, we worked on processes in the business, communication with stakeholders, how to structure interviews with clients, prioritisation, designs and more. She also introduced us to tools and solutions specific to our business needs and helped me find a process to doing the same. Ultimately, I’ve grown immensely both in my role and in the amount of confidence I have to suggest and implement decisions for the business.
What I liked most about our sessions was that it was tailored to me as a person, the work I was doing and the business. She helped me develop a way of working that worked and felt right for me - it was like mentoring but in a very collaborative way where I never felt pressured or like I was being told what to do at every step of the way.
Whether you’re someone who has just started off in their career or someone who’s been doing this for a while and just want to keep improving your skills, I would highly recommend working with Sei!
Coaching with Sei was an invaluable experience for me both professionally and personally! What I am especially grateful for is that Sei inspired me to be authentic and leverage my unique strengths day-to-day rather than fixate on what I thought I was missing. This was so precious to me - as an introverted, female product manager I used to compare myself to louder, more confident voices and often felt out of place.
I loved meeting with Sei and was always looking forward to our sessions. Sei managed to find a great balance between being fun and friendly (we had lots of laughs!) with being firm and professional. In our sessions I would bring a topic for discussion and Sei would skilfully unpack it by asking insightful questions and provide very practical recommendations.
I would recommend coaching with Sei to anyone who wants to take their product mindset to a new level, struggle with self-confidence day-to-day or want specific professional advice, all while having fun (and even an occasional glass of wine!).
Most often, I am brought in by a founder to coach and develop product managers in the team. Sometimes, I work directly with individuals who want to grow as product managers.
These coaching relationships last from 8 weeks to 9 months involving a bespoke programme tailored to the individual's skills and needs.
I also run a small group programme for aspiring product managers called 'So, you're thinking of becoming a Product Manager'. Find out more about the group programme here.
If you are interested in working with me, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org telling me a little about who you are and what you are looking for. Our first step will be to have an introductory call to see if we vibe.
If we do get on, and all is well, I'll put together a programme for us to work together on.
Then, off we go! 🚀
I am currently fully booked until
