My Company
Yuki Gotanda Coaching & Consulting Inc.

I am a career transition/retirement coach for international development/humanitarian professionals. I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) member and ICF-certified coach.

For individual clients

I work with:

  1. Mid-career professionals who wish to transition into international development / humanitarian careers.
  2. International development / humanitarian professionals who are transitioning into new roles.
  3. International development / humanitarian professionals considering leaving the field and looking for new career paths (finding a job in the home country, starting a small business, etc.).
  4. Spouses & partners of international development/humanitarian professionals who are looking for flexible careers, and
  5. International development / humanitarian professionals transitioning into retirement.

I also work with other expatriates and immigrants who go through cross-cultural career transitions.

Making a mid-life and cross-cultural career transition can be challenging, but you do not have to go through this transition alone. I have personally been on the same path you are on (I have over 20 years of experience and worked in 19 countries. I moved from the private sector to the UN, UN to NGO, and now I am a business owner) and can assist you with your journey.

I look forward to assisting you in creating a new resilient career, and finding meaning and purpose in your retirement.
