CORPORATE VIRIDITAS TESTIMONIALS
“I first went to Garden of Ayden because I was told that it will help me achieve more balance and better perspective in my life. Fast forward a few months since my first meeting with Suki, and I can testify to the accuracy of the original advice. The sessions are flexible and positively fluid. Everything from psychological therapy to well-being, and from body language to science and life coaching, is present in our meetings; and it happens to be present in an effortless and extremely natural way. That Suki is open to sharing her own experiences on the various topics, issues and concerns that I bring to the table, makes for an engaging, meaningful and invaluable experience. It genuinely feels like I have so much “space” within what is otherwise a structured and well-thought-through environment is one of the best experiences that I have been party to. I gained and continue to gain plenty of insight through my Garden of Ayden space, and words like “balance”, “perspective” and “positivity” have a new meaning in my life.”
“Garden of Ayden’s Corporate Tailor-Made Workshop gave me the possibility to share valuable insights with my worldwide team. I wished to enhance our growth mindset looking positively into the future with tools that would challenge us all to think even more creatively as a family enterprise. The main objective was to ensure that we all use our similarities to reinforce us as a team and that we use our differences to complement each other rather than to create any divide or competitive spirit among peers. A healthy approach with an understanding of solid communication skills and the subtle differences between different communication styles opens the doors towards more mutually beneficial relationships within the Company as well as wholesome results. ”
“Three months ago, when I first visited Sukaiyna Gokal, I was in a confused state. Years of hard work whilst trying to achieve ambitious career goals had taken their toll on both my mental and physical health, to a point where I lost perspective of what really mattered and could not clearly see what needed to be done to achieve my goals and advance. She helped me, step by step, to analyse my situation and see what went wrong. The fact that she herself was very familiar with the maritime industry, knowing the kind of pressure that is there within a chartering / operating environment, was a great plus for me to put faith in to her as a trusted companion to
help me move forward. She could immediately relate to my situation, partly drawing on own experiences as well. She has a talent for seeing through a situation and identifying issues, then working swiftly towards dealing with them and overcoming them. I went from a place where I felt lost, to a place where i feel comfortable of taking control again, not letting others direct anymore which course I should sail. Now we are three months later, and I feel very different than when I first met her. My confidence is back, my goals are more clear and I am hopeful again for what the future brings. In other words, my mental health has been restored, I dare even say
improved from what it was before. I have to end on a negative note though (which she will not like, my physical health has unfortunately not been restored, thanks to the chocolate cake she kept serving me … I can recommend Sukaiyna Gokal 100%, certainly has improved my quality of life, for which I am very grateful.”
“I met Sukaiyna Gokal almost a year ago at a moment of change in my professional and personal life. Sukaiyna has the unique abilityto quickly connect, assess situations and offer concrete tools, processes and plans of action. She manages to stay above the emotional fray with questions and insights that push towards clarity. She is the person you want standing by you as you tackle whatever is most important to you. I have undertaken many things since I have met her: career advancement, new idea development, improvement of existing relationships, take-on of new ones. She has been beside me, reminding me of my accountability. To myself, to the vision that I have, to the values that I hold others accountable for: honesty, reliability, kindness, compassion. I am stunned by this process. After a long time struggling to take steps to improve my professional and personal life, I met Sukaiyna and found a new sense of purpose, a well-defined idea for my future, and a practical plan to help me get to where I want to be. Sukaiyna has been instrumental in all these changes. She is unswerving in her focus to push you be the best you can be, in unlocking your holdbacks, in uncovering your potentials. This changes how you perceive yourself, making success (however you define it) an option.”
