She defines the process as hosting dialogic conditions in which people participate to imagineer* their own change. Her academic and professional research in coaching dialogues and pedagogy from the University of Toronto led to development of a simple coaching model, Dialogic Orientation Quadrant.

Haesun roasts her own coffee, loves dogs and horses, and is quite particular about her choice of pens.
