I still vividly remember the date I contacted Don when I needed desperate help with my English. I was about to be promoted to a General Manager position of my company about two years ago. Looking back, that particular moment was indeed a critical transition point in my career as well as my leadership development, yet English was the most concerning area diminishing my confidence everyday.
Don matched me with my English coach, Steve Yi who has great understanding on corporate culture and dynamics as well as deep insight into literature, history, philosophy and culture. Ever since then, I have become a very loyal client to Don and student to Steve. Meeting Steve twice a week has become my peaceful morning ritual out of my busy and hectic life.
My key objective by enrolling myself to Don’s English coaching program was to excel level of my English fluency. But interacting with someone like my coach, Steve at such deeper level actually has brought me much bigger impact than I ever imagined. Steve inspired me to widen my perspectives and look at different aspects of people, challenges and opportunities associated with my roles at my work and in my life.
Let me take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Don and Steve who have given me such special experience and friendship.
