Although it’s a vital step in the application process, sometimes self-evaluation is easier said than done. That said, you don’t have to do it alone! You stand to deepen your internal discovery process by having constructive discussions with those who know you well and have worked with you, along with the support of an experienced coach. Ask what others think your strongest attributes are and areas that you could develop further during your MBA. Not only will this provide valuable insight into your personal brand, and the answers may come in handy for interviews, too!
My coaching superpower is simplification – taking a confusing question or a complex story and distilling it down to a main point. “Navigating the ambiguous” is commonly noted as an important skill in the technology and consulting worlds that I have worked to hone. Whether it’s out-of-the-box interview questions or an unclear essay topic, I love to help my clients tap into their personal experiences to prepare effective answers.
