Doing What I Love
A few years ago, ‘Coaching’ was a word that started to become popular and my natural inquisitiveness pushed me to find out more about it. I took my first step into the Coaching world with the Coaches Training Institute in Dubai where I attended the Co-active Coaching fundamentals. This gave me a taste of what being a coach in Dubai is all about and that’s when I thought, “This is it! This is what I want to do!” Engaging, motivating and assisting individuals at being better Leaders became my goal.
After a few years of reflection and shaping my career in the corporate world, I decided to specialize in Executive Coaching in Dubai. Whilst searching for the most appropriate program, I discovered that The Teacher’s College/Columbia University in New York City was offering a certification. From this day onwards, there was no doubt in my mind that this was the road to follow. During my intensive course, I realized that a lot of what I was doing was ‘Coaching’ but it helped me put a frame around it and meet with many inspiring and talented individuals.
I finally decided to join forces with Salma at The Pathway Project as a partner in 2014! I believe that with a combined experience of over 20 years, we can make a real difference in a market that is competitive, dynamic and diverse just like us!
