Thank you for your like or share, this is much appreciated. “An act of kindness creates and endless ripple.” Princess Diana What is Executive Coaching? Executive Coaching is partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Executive Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals. This is a personalised service and approach based on your needs and where you are in life. Examples of why People opt for Executive Coaching: • How do you deal with unreasonable deadlines? • How do you deal with anxiety and stress at the office and at home? • How do you deal with staff or you line manager placing you in tough and awkward positions? • How do you deal with what you may perceive people are thinking of you? • How do you deal with your past and make your shortcomings your strengths? • How you listen to understand compared rather than listen to reply listen to reply? • How do you learn to believe in yourself? • How do you build self confidence in yourself? • How you learn to express yourself in a manner which you are truly understood? There is no specific programme, each person coaching programme will be based on their personal circumstances and personal goals. Each client will start at a place there are comfortable in their journey of becoming. This is a private and confidential unbiased sounding board with introspection and understanding of oneself. We all differ and at times our lenses need to be altered or just cleaned to look at life in general differently. This is a specific personalised goal orientated programme.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping people reach their full potential based on my own experiences and exposures from High School to University and working in the Corporate world as a Director.

Please see my profile on LinkedIn Riaan Hamid for my work experience and qualifications and Look at Why Should you choose me question.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I always assisted my friends, family, peers, colleagues and direct employees dealing with stressful and complicated related business issues. When we think without negative emotions and delay our responses, we communicated in a manner more palatable to your audience.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am realistic, logical and will tell you the truth while in in comfortable and safe environment with no judgment and adhering to strict confidentiality clauses . Not every Executive/ Life/ Business Coach, step program, any other professional will be the best fit for you, you have the right to choose any person who is the best fit for you. There is no magic pill or step program in my opinion. Change takes times, practice and years to achieve based from my own journey but what I know for sure with a willingness to learn, open mind and use of other professionals including medical practitioners and other wellness methods where applicable, you will see a change in your life.
