“Nihad is phenomenal in her approach to coaching and behavioural change. She takes the time to learn about the realities of her client’s work lives, listens to their aspirations and frustrations, and stays open and curious about what might be possible. Instead of compelling me into a standard model, she created one that was unique and aligned with my drives and needs. I highly recommend Nihad.”

“Nihad is a bright, intelligent business leader with an international perspective. She articulates facets of business and culture that are not normally seen by others. Her track record of solving challenges aligns with her experience in different verticals-- finance, management, human resources and business culture. I find our interaction has expanded my view further and allowed me to consider things I would not have without her counsel. She is patient and is a world-class communicator”
