Coach: What makes a good coach?

A lot of amazing women have helped me along the way as I reflect this week on international women’s day which was on March 8. Despite this, I do suffer from a sense of imposter syndrome. So what makes a good coach and how do we manage this in a pandemic?

Thanks to the following guests for participating:
