About Jeanette

Hi there! I’m Jeanette, a former lawyer and Assistant Professor. After a decade practicing law in Toronto and Dubai, a few years teaching university students and training lawyers and other professionals, I’ve returned to my first ❤️, Psychology!

Just like how a simple twist of the kaleidoscope reveals a different image each time, my company name Kaleidoscopic Sky Coaching (KSky Coaching) symbolizes the infinite potential that exists when we put on our kaleidoscopic lens to look at things differently and gain clarity in our careers, business, relationships, and lives.

I use a variety of tools and techniques to help you design your career and life to get the results you want. Drawing on Positive Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, Positive Intelligence, Behavioural Styles, and behaviour science, my coaching approach increases greater self-awareness, invokes deep reflection, and commitment to spark and sustain real change.

As an expat, immigrant, and woman of colour who has lived in five countries (Malaysia, Canada, Netherlands, the UAE which hosts 200 nationalities, and Mauritius) and who has been privileged enough to travel to almost 50 countries, I am familiar with different cultures, being the minority, and have faced both overt discrimination and microaggressions.

Having personally thrived and gained greater resilience after burnout, trauma, chronic illness, and other adversities, I strongly believe that while we can’t change the story of our past, each day is a blank page where we can write our next chapter and the new ending we seek.

I can help if you’re:
⭐ a manager who wants to become a more inspirational leader for your team
⭐ looking to improve team dynamics and relationships
⭐ making a career transition, returning to work after a sabbatical, or retiring
⭐ feeling stressed and need help managing competing demands
⭐ seeking better life balance, well-being, and resilience
⭐ held back from achieving your dreams due to a lack of confidence and impostor syndrome
⭐ an expat transitioning into a new environment or repatriating home
⭐ a fresh graduate entering the world of work or a young professional
⭐ hoping to design a more fulfilling, meaningful life
⭐ looking to spark more innovation for your business

I’ve worked with a variety of clients from across different cultures, age groups, industries, functions, and professions with clients like Microsoft and Cartier as well as start-ups, individuals, and university students.

If you’d like my support to help you write that awesome next chapter of your life, please message me for a free Discovery Call on Zoom. I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you make that change! 😊
