Coach of the Month – Monica Garcia-Romero

Client Testimonials:

“Monica has been my coach during a crucial moment of my professional life, when I moved to work independently. Her professional support has been extremely valuable, specially her intuitive problem solving approach to put problems in context. There have been numerous opportunities in which her judicious guidance helped me to make better decisions (big and small ones).”

“I have had the pleasure of receiving coaching sessions from Monica. Monica’s approach to coaching is really professional and methodical. Monica’s coaching sessions have been pivotal in setting up the new growth strategy for R53 being more efficient on our resource management and decision making. Monica’s true dedication, profesionalism and passion for coaching make her an asset for any company and individual”

“Monica was in one of my cohorts at Advantara Global Executive and Coach Education Institute. She mindfully blends quantitative and qualitative methods in her approach to global executive coaching and development. She has a quiet strength and easy demeanor. I enjoyed collaborating and learning with her.”

“Monica has been instrumental in moving me from theory into practice. Highly perceptive, she helps me to see both what is important to me and the solutions that will work best for me. If you are in the global arena and you want to expand your sphere of influence, engage Monica – she’s good.”

Niche/Specialties: I offer individual leadership development coaching with an intercultural and global business perspective. Global Executive Coaching goes beyond essential executive coaching to also include key aspects of our current global business environment such as cultural awareness, improved global interaction, global mindset, ethics, personal characteristics and working successfully in a global organisation. I also offer coaching to executives in transition during international assignments, supporting them at the various stages, managing a career path as well as helping them deal with common issues impacting on themselves, their spouses and their families. Coaching can be performed in person, over the phone and over secured online technology (Skype, FaceTime)
Expat Experience: I am originally from Spain, and since I was 18 I have been constantly on the move. As an expat working for a top IT corporation I have lived in Belgium, the US and the UK.
Languages Spoken: English and Spanish
Life Experience: I have been lucky to do what I am passionate about by travelling, living in different countries and meeting wonderful people of very diverse backgrounds. For 20 years, I have worked for a top IT corporation, where I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, across the 5 continents. I have managed teams of up to 50 employees, geographically dispersed and and culturally diverse and have worked with the most qualified people in the industry. I have a wonderful husband who enjoys the love of discovering other cultures and have two very culture-minded children (or pre-teens I should say?) who know how to embrace the best of their host and native traditions. I am passionate about people development and so I am greatly enjoying my job as Global Executive and Expat Coach, as I work with people who are experiencing or about to experience what has been a way of life for me.
Accomplishments: Successful international career, a wonderful culture-minded family and setting up my own Global Executive and Expat coaching practice… and I’m not done yet.
What I Love About Working in This Niche: Work with like-minded professionals and families, from diverse cultures and backgrounds.
Coaching Style: Open, caring and positively challenging.
Favorite Coaching Tool: To help my clients see who they really are.
Why Clients Choose Me As Their Coach: Because coaching with me produces great results, because I am personable and demonstrate high integrity.
A Tip for My Niche: Have an open mind!
