Hi, I'm Stella Odogwu, Founder of Intelle Coaching Solutions. I am so glad our paths have crossed and I cannot wait to learn more about you!
Here’s a bit about me:
SEVERAL years ago, I began my journey through Corporate America…
… completely unaware of my value. Throughout my upbringing, I had been taught there were two things I needed to succeed in my Corporate career - Education & Hard work. So I got my degrees and amassed my post-grad certifications. I worked very hard; often the last person to leave the office and never saying NO to any extra projects.
A few years, I noticed a few things:
I wasn't moving up as fast I thought I would! I watched my peers get promoted even though I was delivering more to the bottom line.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW...
I did not know the importance of personal branding and visibility. Yes, I was working hard and delivering results, however, I lacked the confidence required to speaking up and standing in the spotlight.
I did not know how and when to negotiate my salary.
I did not know how to build strategic relationships at the executive level.
I did not know how to influence those over whom I did not have direct authority.
I also found myself deprioritizing my physical and emotional wellness.
I knew something had to change!
MY SUCCESS STORY
With coaching & mentorship, intention, and radical self-work, I uncovered the secret to building career excellence while living a full, gratifying life.
I went from being a shy, timid girl into a bold Corporate leader who was able to:
Make an impact in the lives of customers while contributing several hundred millions to company bottom-lines
Benefit from high-ticket company-sponsored training in prestigious programs
Lead and inspire global teams with direct reports in 5 countries
Earn an enviable compensation package
And, live my best life!
