Working with Semira is like being given a chance to go into the Matrix -- a chance to get beneath the surface and read the source code of our minds and our interactions as a team. Semira manages to make it comfortable for me to (1) find the patterns of my own behaviors, (2) see the impact that my actions have on my friends and co-workers, and (3) learn and practice new behaviors that help me achieve my goals.

Taking the time to process my thoughts with Semira is extraordinarily valuable. She is a wise coach with deep understanding of startups and product. I trust her. She has helped me distill and crystalize what I'm learning every day in my work.

Semira has an incredible gift for insights into people and relationships, the same way Steve Jobs had a gift for product insight
