When I took on a regional office leadership role, I read plenty of books and courses on leadership and management but felt I needed something more to bring out my best skills. I felt intuitively that Mana was the person to go to, as she too has global and multicultural experiences in business and life. The coaching experience with Mana has been amazing and provides a fresh perspective, helping me to recognize who I am.


The benefits of Mana’s executive coaching include being able to step out of your short-sighted, day-to-day thinking and start viewing yourself and your business from a higher plane. Combining intuition and analytical thinking helped to give a broader view of who I am and what I value most.


Mana is very respectful and highly emotionally intelligent, coordinating coaching sessions flexibly depending on the day and condition. She designs playful sessions that help to organize your thoughts while helping draw your future and vision on a white canvas. The process is very entertaining and enlightening, waiting for you when you’re ready.

Mana’s coaching includes regular coaching sessions as well as communication and encouragement outside of the sessions. Her sessions help me to see who I am and what I’m thinking, and show me which steps to take next. When I incorporate what I’ve learned and take action, it leads to new and unexpected discoveries, which I bring to the next session for further insight. The process can be challenging at times, but I always leave my sessions with Mana with a clear mind. If you feel this might be for you, trust that instinct. What happens will likely exceed your expectations.

Mana Tomitori is a very flexible and creative facilitator with a global mindset and “local” heart. Her training creates a bridge that connects people with different backgrounds and encourages them to enjoy the power of diversity and to expand their possibilities.


When asked to design a workshop or training, she actively listens to our needs and customizes the program. She naturally brings corporate values and beliefs into playful activities to transform trainees' mindsets. She excels in Leadership, Innovation, Team Building and Communication. I would like to continue collaborating with her in the future.
