It is an incredibly rewarding experience working with Yabome on the Vision and Mission of my school as well as executive coaching. She challenges me to question assumptions and helps me discover reasons for my thinking. Yabome and I collaborate to strategically move forward with new initiatives and thoughtfully consider all aspects of implementation. Throughout the process I am encouraged to think, then intentionally plan and achieve desired outcomes.
Yabome’s skills are incredibly strong. She is a brilliant presenter, storyteller and facilitator of connection and dialogue – her intellect is surpassed only by her engaging manner and authenticity. She demonstrated a powerful ability to make us (as her clients) feel heard. She was able to navigate the tricky territory of allowing space to process and be heard while keeping us on track and holding our feet to the fire in making the difficult decisions we needed to as a group. Thanks to Yabome’s skillful facilitation our board is still together and we have a high level of trust and admiration for one another. In fact, our entire organization continues to this day in large part because of Yabome. Without someone to help us reframe our trauma at the time this conflict was happening, it is highly doubtful we would have found a way to move forward – certainly not with the strong and unified leadership that is currently in place and serving the volunteers and clients we support.
