"Samir is uniquely qualified to help organizations convert bystanders into cheerleaders and turn passengers into pilots."
"Samir Selmanovic is asking the right questions at the right time."
“Samir brings clarity, focus and spirit to the leadership journey. He 'guides from the side' — creating a powerful pull on our deepest desires to create meaningful change. He has changed the way I think about leadership and how I think about myself.”
“Over the course of a year, Samir helped our hospital leadership team rest in ways deeper than physical rest, contextualizing his work with us in a way that resonates, is impactful, and “sticks.” Samir is a broad thinker who will listen to you, challenge you, support you, research with you, and encourage you to accomplish your goals—along with stretching you along the way. Samir is a multiplier. I would highly recommend Samir Selmanovic to senior leadership teams for change management, cultural contextualization and fresh approaches to problem definition and solution.”
"I consider it an immense privilege that I was fortunate enough to meet Samir three years ago. Not only have I been the recipient of learning from Samir's experience and knowledge gained over multiple decades, but he has also been able to bring out a hidden wisdom and courage in myself, that I hadn't been able to tap into until now. Every coaching conversation I have had with Samir ends with me feeling full of hope, clear direction and energy to accomplish what I know I was meant to do."
It is hard to lead in corporate America.
Expectations are increasing, disruption is continuous, and access to your own wisdom is constantly obstructed by excess information.
Under such pressure, high achievers tend to stick to what brought them success so far and thus cut themselves off from attending to what can take them further: personal reflection and spiritual practice. Eventually, the old models of reality (the way they make meaning) and their systems of living (the way they design their own day-to-day lives) stop serving them.
Spiritual vigor, however, is the least talked about and most critical characteristic of a successful business leader today. Without full attention to our inner lives, we run out of purpose and energy, lose connection with people, and fear the resulting insignificance of our life’s work.
Even if you are aware of this dynamic in your own life, you might not have the energy, time, and workable strategy and method to proactively attend to your spiritual aspirations.
This is where I step in to serve you. I help you feast on your life.
Through our work together you will learn to embody a spirituality that is worldly, rooted, and practical. You will be able to turn the angular, monochromatic, and dehydrated corporate world into what it could become: a sacred place where amazing human beings work together to make amazing things happen in the world.
You are already an expert, a master of your professional domain. Once you dare to be whole and attend to your inner life, your family, friends, and new people you meet, you will be perfectly capable of taking your team, organization, and legacy to another level entirely and to achieve a quality of personal and professional fulfillment you could have not imagined.
Welcome to Wisdom Workroom.
The best conversations create a container for the extraordinary. They are spacious, resource rich, and leave the other person with a sense of the conversation that grows over time even if the content of the conversation fades. They are unforgettable. Always seem like more than enough. And are infused with generosity. The best conversations take so much more into account than could ever be spoken—they are based on a knowing, not a thinking. And a listening that transcends an intense fixation on the other person’s words—or their body language. The best conversations leave an enduring aspect of the other person in us—and of us in the other person. This is the most exquisite common ground.
This past year has been the most memorable of the 22 years I’ve been with EILEEN FISHER. After chipping away at our broad sustainability and social values, we finally went public with our deep and authentic goals to become 100% sustainable. What we have been doing is a historical initiative and one of the greatest joys of my career. And when I say “we,” I include in it a personal victory of mine: I am leaving the state of “being busy” behind.
