Hello and Welcome!
My name is Shalyma Cambridge. I am a Certified Organizational Coach and International Coach Federation Member trained through the University of British Columbia’s Organizational Coaching program which follows the International Coach Federation’s guidelines and high standards for coaching.
In a “previous life” I was deeply entrenched in a marketing/communications career which developed across non-profit, public and private organizations and several years of experience within the financial services industry. While I enjoyed the creativity and problem-solving aspects of what I did, like 70-80% of employees, I was not “passionate” about my job.
Through some serious soul searching and active exploration, I discovered that I absolutely loved facilitating and witnessing successful change within others. Whether it’s through traditional teaching, workshop facilitation or one-on-one coaching, I love seeing that light bulb go off and helping people apply new information (about self or the world) to move forward in life. Finding and transitioning into my own personal career “happy-place” was a huge part of the puzzle for me which is why I am so passionate about career and organizational coaching in order to attain career fulfillment and organizational harmony.
I am eager to help clients navigate unexpected or planned career exploration and the challenges of navigating the unique and constantly moving parts of organizational culture. My mission – help both individuals and organizations meet their full potential within the complex, ever-shifting, modern labour landscape.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology; Graduate Certificate in Communications Management; certification as an Organizational Coach through the University of British Columbia and is a certified Personality Dimensions facilitator. Currently pursuing my Master’s in Organizational Leadership, I am also a member of the Vancouver Board of Trade’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and co-lead the Vancouver Culture Collective Chapter which holds space to share learnings on transforming and building great cultures in the workplace. .
