Why Choose Us?
At EdpowerU, we describe coaching as a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential. It is almost natural as individuals to get overwhelmed from time to time, feel stuck, challenged, demotivated or continually look for that meaning or fulfillment from our lives and our careers. Coaching actively works with individuals to identify those blocks, take additional challenges, be proactive, drive acceptance and manage situations to enhance their responsiveness to their lives and careers.
In the Coactive model, which we follow, the premise is that all humans are naturally creative and resourceful, and we all have the capacity to know what is best for ourselves. The model focuses on the individual as a whole and works actively towards evoking a form of transformation. The model works on both the being and the doing, re-emphasizing the need for the “co” and “active” in our lives.
Each coaching relationship is custom-designed to meet the particular needs of the individuals involved in line with their objectives. Each conversation will be guided by the Coachee, while the coach will listen, contribute observations, build accountability, challenge and request, bottom-line and intrude as required. The Coachee will be given a number of internal tools, techniques and insights to themselves and their environment over the course of the coaching relationship.
The aim of the interaction is that it creates clarity, holds individuals accountable and moves them towards action. Each session ends with a list of action points that the Coachee will need to complete as they make that shift in their lives.
Our 5-Point Model
Through an intense 5 stage process of self-awareness through discovery and identification of values, interests, motivations, and saboteurs, we work with individuals with a view to driving a commitment to change.
The coaching plan for a particular individual will be custom designed to include the following:
A DISCOVERY session to explain the methodology, design the alliance, understand the individual, their satisfaction levels and their challenges
An IDENTIFICATION session to go deeper into the self-discovery process to identify key values, motivations and limiting beliefs
A CHALLENGE session to communicate the organization’s philosophy, culture, values and expectations of the individual or alternatively assess the current environment that the individual is in personally and professionally, while providing a platform for the individual to share their thoughts, perspective and areas of discomfort
ACCOUNTABILITY sessions to drive the commitment to change and develop an individual action plan as a PATH TO TRANSFORMATION

“There’s a leader in each of us. It just needs finding. That’s what stayed with me after a dozen or so sessions with Shubika. Mind you, this is not what she coached me on. This is my take away. What she did with me was as simple as it was magical. She ushered me into an elevator. We descended into the depth of my mind. Each time the doors slid back, I saw a performer, a teacher, a problem-solver. The elevator kept going down, opening at every level. A kind soul, a thinker, a person with a sense of humour. What I didn’t see was a leader. And then there it was, quivering in a corner, cold and uncomfortable. Leadership wrapped in damp layers – the fear of failing, the fear of letting down those who look up to me, the fear of being judged. In that last session with her, I stood there starring at my leadership, face to face. It was a moment of silent epiphany. In that moment I knew what I had to do. I can’t thank Shubika enough. Thank you for arguably my life's most invaluable journey.”– Porus Jose, Creative Director
“Shubika has coached me and she is bang-on with it. She understands you well, deep-dives as you keep progressing with each session.
