Calvin Iwema | Executive Coach
Calvin's unique strength is the perspective he brings to clients. He is among only a handful of coaches who have both real-world experience from working inside Corporate America and professional psychological training and experience. This allows Calvin to better understand the crossover between the client's personal inner landscape and bottom-line business results.
Calvin's approach allows clients to gain awareness and insight into their behavior and communication patterns, and more importantly to use this awareness as the foundation for lasting change. This is coupled with a persistent focus on translating self-understanding into sustainable behavior change, thus mitigating common workplace challenges and enhancing his client's existing strengths and focus on results. Calvin's level of commitment and the quality of relationships he builds has made him a favorite among his clients.
Having experience working across a variety of industries including software, financial and professional services, Calvin has most recently provided coaching and training services to a $1 billion real estate investment firm over a two-year span. The client CEO described his work as "an out-of-the-park, overall success that has impacted our company and culture greatly."
Calvin holds a MA in Counseling Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology and an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is also a graduate of Coach U Coaching University. Calvin is a licensed counselor in the State of Illinois and member of the Illinois Counseling Association.
