Hi! I am Dr. Lakshmi
I am on a mission to make coaching accessible to science professionals. People in science are people with a passion, and a purpose to positively impact the world.
However, the journey can get rough with pressure to publish, keep up with grants and administration
Unfortunately, training in science is heavily focused on technical skills. Seldom on self management, working with teams, and leadership. This is essential as research shows increasing burnout and depression amongst science professionals.
I aim to address exactly this gap as a professional coach, speaker and trainer with 20 years of experience in science careers.
To empower early-mid career individuals in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) fields to become effective future leaders.
To see science professionals and future leaders not only grow in their technical skillset, but also cultivate true leadership capabilities
Respect: Teaching and learning through mutual understanding and regard
Empowerment: Creating stronger and more confident leaders of tomorrow
Trust: Building foundations on reliability and truth
"I've had a great learning opportunity in Lakshmi's recent workshop on "LinkedIn for Scientists". It was full of useful tips and advice how to improve one's visibility, create a perfect post and gear up in the job hunt. She told about the subtle tricks and kicks how to make your personal brand stand out and attract followers. I greatly appreciate Lakshmi's style of coaching since she brings in her personal experience and vulnerability to make the content easy to relate to, and is able to keep everyone engaged via her gentle and positive interaction with the audience."
