Sodam first left her country as a back packer to Europe in 1991 when she was still in Univ in Korea.
During 2 mths, she traveled from Nice to Oslo where she met her life time friend from Alger in the train with whom she’s still in touch.
She got her first job in Paris @ Publicis in Champs-Elysées where she worked with the team of German, Danish, British and French nationals. This early exposure to multinational environment taught her how to capture & sense the nonverbal communications of people from different cultural background.
Back to her native Korea, she started working for multinaitonal clients in 4As before moving to HK for her regional role. Then she moved to Shanghai to work for Greater China in 1998. Two years in bubbling melting pot SH before milleunium marked her with a bunch of precious friends and a french fiancé.
Moving to Paris in 2000 for a wedding, she had entered in a large French Jewish family while being protestant. This amazing experiences allowed her to see the unseen and to break the general perception. Sodam is still protestant 🙂
After 5 yrs in Paris, she moved to Singapore where she encountered the post natal depression after the birth of her 3rd child. She was recovered by seeing the therapist, the healer, the counselor and the psychologist, which allowed her to understand the different roles of these somewhat sound similar professions.
She’s also an avid believer of NVC where she learned how to observe when listening not to intreprete.
Deep observation, Empathetic listening, Thorough probing, Sharp questions, Concrete action plans after each session, Result oriented coaching.
Knowing is one thing, Realizing is another.
How “”Realizing is different from “”Knowing””
The Power in Us.
