Testimonials

Zezan Tam

VP Strategy, Technology Industry

Prior to chatting with Yishi, I felt like I was working through some key life questions alone. Almost immediately after our first conversation, I began to pull on some long-overdue threads. There was a lot of unexplored territory, and I scheduled a few follow-ups with friends, and unspooled a lot of internal insight. I didn’t feel as stuck. I saw a path forward. And I began to prioritize the quality of my own internal state.

Sonal Singh Goldstein

Founder & CEO, Technology Industry

Yishi has opened my eyes to the value of coaching. Working with him has been an easy, cost-affordable way to approach something that didn’t seem the most accessible. It’s been a great way to get started.

Lucas Cravero

VP Sales, Food & Beverage Industry

I’m an extremely outgoing person, hence my job in sales. But I rarely ever have deep conversations with people. Upon reflection, it might be because of how my parents raised me and how they communicate with one another. Working with Yishi has helped me work on my ability to connect with others – including my fiancé – on a deeper level.

Eric Hsiao

Product Manager, Technology Industry

Working with Yishi has helped me self-reflect in a way that I hadn’t done before. As I progress in my career, I really do want to build my communication & coaching muscles to grow as a leader, and I appreciate this opportunity.
