About the Author
Gina Cajucom is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) who promotes better conversations in the workplace using ©Authentic Workplace Engagement (AWE). These are future-focused, progress-oriented, and co-constructive dialogues that need to happen in the workplace to break the self-defeating cycle of attributing cause or casting blame. AWE emphasizes strengths and small steps toward progress using essential dialogues and touchpoint conversations.
Gina’s extensive experience working with upstarts, small businesses, and large corporations across industries, gives her the unique ability to see organizations in their duality. Top executives, owners, and major stakeholders are focused on the bottom line—productivity and profitability. People at the grassroots level, who grapple with work-life balance and career development, are either partly engaged or completely disengaged. Gina’s strength and commitment is to work-life integration while contributing to bottom-line business results through leadership coaching.
With over fifteen years of experience in human resources management (H.R.) and organizational development (O.D.), her stints in coaching emerging leaders and executives across industries awakened her passion for leadership development and work-life integration. This unique experience inspired her to help young leaders and professionals with their career management challenges within or without their organizations through Career Coefficient http://www.careercoefficient.ca.
A Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) in Canada, Gina completed two years of graduate study in MS Human Resource Management at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila and has completed a Master’s Certificate in Organizational Development (MCOD) from the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto. Her extensive training in co-active coaching techniques with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and Solution-Focused Brief Coaching with the University of Toronto, complements her undergraduate degree in B.S. Psychology. She currently contributes to the development of Brief Coaching in the Philippines in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Brief Coaching http://www.briefcoaching.ca. She also volunteers her time with The Coaching Fellowship http://www.tcfs.org, helping young international women leaders of impact accelerate their leadership potential.
