Hi, I'm Preeti Gopal,
I help you design and lead a life aligned with your vision and values.
What led me here ?
For years I had been ticking all the 'right boxes.' Born and raised in India, I moved to Germany, mastered the language and have now been living and working across different cities in Germany for 20 years. My personal life was fine and I was doing well in a promising corporate career. Life was comfortable. On the outside.
On the inside however, I started feeling restless. Despite recognition and a fair amount of success, I felt disconnected and empty. Most of what I did felt devoid of meaning and so I spent my days going through the motions but with little energy and enthusiasm. It felt like being trapped in a hamster wheel, doing busy work but making no meaningful progress. I often wondered 'this can't be all there is, there's got to be more.'
As the feeling of being stuck and stagnated kept getting stronger, I began to uncover the reason behind it. I realized that where I was in life, was largely a result of reactive, random and unconscious choices often based on what seemed normal, feasible or convenient. The nagging realization that I was leaving my growth in the hands of randomness kept gnawing at me. I felt powerless. Somewhere along the way I had unconscioulsy given away my power to dream and to design my life.
You see 'doing fine and being comfortable' did not inspire and challenge me to grow into what I could be.'Fine and comfortable' did not nurture and blossom that powerful human spirit I've always felt within.
My fork in the road
I longed to 'feel' alive, enthusiastic and purposeful. I craved to be and become and unleash the person I knew I could be. I immersed myself into finding my own answers. Slowly but surely an inspiring and exciting vision started forming.And I started claiming my responsibility and power to live towards that vision.
I made the decision to quit my corporate career as I did not see myself making a difference there. Following my insatiable curiosity for human potential, I embarked on a fascinating journey of learning and growth that led me to the field of life coaching. Today, I am passionate about making a positive difference in my clients' lives. And it feels so aligned and so rewarding.
Look, we've all come a long way. And there is still so much to be and do, so much to share and experience. But why wait until that happens, to feel joy and fulfillmemt ? How long are we going to wait for ?
We can intentionally design our days to feel the joy right here, right now, every day. How ? By Living in Alignment.
Why I can help you create transformation ?
As a certified systemic life coach, I am equipped with intensive, science-backed coaching methods with ICF-accredited institutions.
As a life long learner, I continually invest in my professional development through the best trainings, seminars, workshops, courses and books in the fields of psychology, neuroscience and personal development. The resulting and evolving skill set equips me to help accelarate your growth.
With 15 years of work experience in the corporate world in varied leading roles across global organizations in India and Germany, I have gained vast know-how on organizational systems and processes with my expertise being in the area of Supply Chain Management. I have project and programme management experience leading global cross functional teams. Above all, having been part of this world, I understand the demands and challenges a corporate career places on oneself.
Living and travelling across different cultures and countries (Germany, Brazil, India) has helped hone my language and intercultural skils. I relate to and feel at home with people from around the globe.
And finally, as fellow humans,we sail in the same boat. Our humanness makes us more similar than different. So if you're in a place where you feel stuck and crave to break through, I get you. Because you know that powerful spirit I feel within ? You feel it too. And you know what it longs for. It is time to start listening to it.
