Pradeepa Narayanaswamy

In this episode my guest is Pradeepa Narayanaswamy. Pradeepa is the Founder of Lives Transformed she’s worked with corporates and senior managers to maximise their effectiveness. Not a subject that grabs me or probably you as a listener.  I’m more interested in her work that followed her own personal challenge.

She loved her role and enjoyed helping colleagues and providing the coaching support they needed for career and personal challenges.  She fell in love with coaching. Then…. Her biggest life challenge showed up…. Infertility.

I asked Pradeepa (who’s based in the Dallas Fort Worth area) to tell me her story.
