YOU DESERVE TO BE CONTENT - PURPOSE DRIVEN - HAPPY
ARE YOU RUNNING AWAY FROM OR TOWARD SOMETHING?
They say, the hardest step in goal setting is deciding what you truly want.
When you run away from a job or a situation, you often end up feeling lost because away is not a direction. Toward is a direction.
Leadership Coaching with us can help you set clear intentions and decide what you want out of life and support your journey toward those goals.
We're Zayd Khoury and Akshita Joshi Khoury and we coach people who want to move toward more fulfilling, impactful lives.
