“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.”
