Armored with training and coaching virtues
Who says women cannot break the glass ceiling in career aspects? Meet Amy Sinton who is changing gender stereotypes. Born in England, Amy Sinton lived most of his life in Warsaw, Poland. She moved a few times between countries and attended many top schools. This diversity gave her the opportunity to learn different languages and adjust easily to new surroundings and situations. She is a mother of 3 wonderful children.
The biggest challenge in her life is getting her certifications while being a mother of three kids. During the pandemic, she was partly home-schooling her elder kids, caring for her newborn, as well as getting her certifications online. She adds, “It is very difficult to find a harmonious balance in juggling all of this, but definitely worth it.”
When asked about how successfully she strikes a perfect balance between her personal and professional life she expresses, “I make it a priority to write in my “must do” projects in my calendar first. I also make it a necessity to spare a few minutes for self-care or to unwind and relax. I also try to get sound sleep which was once a rare thing in the past.”
She shares her views on today’s organizational culture for working women and mentions that as an outcome of the pandemic, there are a lot of work and educational opportunities now being offered online. “This kind of work runs is high quality with more flexible hours and locations. Home offices have become a game changer, especially for women,” she elaborates.
Discerning strategies to help women achieve a more prominent role in their organizations is very crucial. According to her, coaching and business training are incredibly empowering tools that can make women more self-aware, confident and enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals. It can help them achieve much more prominent roles in their organizations.
Amy Sinton talks about the challenges that she faced in her career and says, “The most difficult barrier was deciding what I actually want to do. I always knew about my interest in biology, psychology, and business amongst others. They were aligned with my values and my love of supporting people in their personal lives and careers.”
Amy Sinton’s father’s work ethic has been a huge inspiration to her. She says that her father has always proven that hard work pays off and if you believe in yourself and work hard, the sky is the limit for you.
On a personal front and on a Saturday morning at 11, she is usually found at home, cleaning up after making breakfast and getting her kids to mobilize and indulge in some activities. Or she will be found unwinding herself, with her kids, at some arts and crafts, or attending her son’s football match. In her leisure time, she loves to paint and dance. She also learned ballet & dancing from the age of 5.
Her determination, commitment disciplinary behaviour are her biggest strength, which according to her, sooner or later bring you to success. She described self-doubting as one of her weaknesses which she is working on and moving past through it.
Her passion is integral to supporting people in believing in themselves, and their capabilities, and in achieving their goals. She said, “My lack of self-belief and support in my younger days led me to this passion of building confidence in others and providing the right type of support.”
She was honoured to be on the top of the list for Top 10 Executive Coaches of 2022, as well as for the Top 20 Life Coaches to look out for in 2022 by NYC Journal.
Her mantra towards success goes as, “It is very important to get past the negative way or what limits us the most. They are others’ false beliefs that we have held on to and made our own personal perspective. The key to growth and development is changing your mindset.”
“I would say that education and support are the two most important factors in enabling women to pursue their careers. It is vital for us to have good role models in life which reassures the notion that it is completely normal for women wanting to be ambitious and knowing that they are capable of achieving great things in life, just like anybody else,” she concludes.
