Jul 18, 2023

In this episode, we explore what it means to overcome roadblocks and create sustainable change. Having worked for many years in a large multinational organisation, Hulya shares with us her journey to become a coach and mentor. We explore how she helps her clients reframe their misbeliefs and why she chooses to use the term feed forward instead of feedback.



“Our roadblocks come from our misbeliefs, but we cannot immediately change our mindset. Change means repetition, repetition, repetition. You do something once. You see the outcome and that nothing went wrong so you do it again, seeing it get better and better. This is how change happens. It’s a slow process because we don’t have a magic wand.”



After 32 years of working within a multinational company, Hulya chose to follow her passion of becoming a coach, mentor and workshop facilitator. She motivates and empowers company management teams and their employees to move forward in their professional life. Additionally, she specialises in growth management with young adults and teenagers, assisting them through anxieties, fears, and internal roadblocks.
