My approach to coaching:

The most important aspect of a successful coaching engagement is the relationship between Coach and Client. It must be abundantly clear that we can talk about all the things that matter to you, what’s really happening, and what you wish was happening. Our work is confidential, honored, and held with the utmost integrity.

It’s imperative that the trust between us allows you to express, expand and experiment safely so that you can give yourself permission to try, stumble and get playful, and try new approaches.

When you show up more fully for yourself in our sessions, you’ll be amazed at what you can create.

You take the lead in the coaching relationship. Together, we explore the things that matter most to you, uncover the attributes, skills, and experiences that make you uniquely who you are, eliminate roadblocks, and help you create change that lasts.

You bring your wholeness, context, concerns, aspirations, truth, and ideas into our work. I’ll bring curiosity, listening and creativity, tools, strategies, experience, and expertise into the relationship.

Over the years, I’ve found that it’s not necessarily just your professional experience that shifts as we work together: It’s your ability to see yourself fully, think strategically, and confidently handle life’s inevitable ups and downs as you move toward what you truly want.

Leaders of organizations that engage senior and executive coaching report increased satisfaction and growth, as well as enhanced business impact and effectiveness.

Is this a time for coaching?

Even in the best of times, many of the most accomplished and talented people we know stumble or stall on the path to lead their way and make work, work better.

Coaching is a thought partnership. It’s a unique collaboration that can help you create time and commitments for yourself and arrive at a clearer understanding of HOW you work and lead.

Whether you’re trying to meet personal and professional challenges with resourcefulness, hone your leadership skill and confidence, become more effective in developing and supporting your team, or have better conversations that lead to more successful relationships, we’ll work together to create insights and actions that get you unstuck and move you forward.

I just wanted to say how beneficial it has been to have Nayla as a coaching partner in my leadership development.  Having her insight in helping me understand how I can be more impactful in my role, as well as helping me better understand myself and communicate with my manager, have been essential to my growth.
I have had many 360’s and coaches over the years and I have to say that I would wish for every person that they have someone as insightful, artful in delivery yet direct, compassionate and approachable as Nayla. That is truly what can help our leaders in their development.

Coaching really works when:

  • You’re hungry for something to be different in your work and life.
  • You believe you can make changes happen in your own life (with the right support and a proven approach),
  • You understand that the work of change and growth requires an honest look inside, at the beliefs, habits, and thoughts that shape your decisions,
  • You have an openness to learning and trying new things,
  • You’re willing to have honest conversations with colleagues, friends, and managers as part of your personal discovery,
  • You are willing to create time to do 1-3 hours of independent work per week to advance your progress…

The whole way I think about my experience and value in my career has changed because of our work together. Where I used to feel trapped by my level of experience and my seniority, I now feel that word you always talk about: agency. This is partially because you gave me tools and a framework to see my work more clearly, and partially because your approach is grounded in possibilities. I feel totally different as I have interviews and networking conversations, and I know I’m confident and persuasive as a result. Thank you!
