Ruqaya Ibrahim, MA., is a Columbia University-trained leadership coach who supports clients in developing their assertiveness, resilience, and ability to adapt to new environments. She has a global perspective, including four-years of experience as an architect working in the Middle East.
As an architect, she leverages her ability to zoom-in and out throughout the coaching session. To dive deep and explore the client’s limiting beliefs in a way that serves that bigger picture or the vision the client designed for themselves. Her career shift and new field of study inform her understanding of professionals challenges in organizational settings.
Furthermore, Ruqaya enjoys taking an embodied approach in coaching. In that regard, clients particularly appreciate the centering practice and mood checks Ruqaya often uses at the beginning of a session. Additionally, cultivating embodied leadership by leveraging the physical body as a domain of learning, change, and transformation.
