Clients seek my help when they know that improving performance requires improving alignment among a leadership team’s members, whether the organization is undergoing a significant change initiative or transition, or to strengthen the culture and focus of the organization.

Most organizations have many analysts and business experts who can solve logical problems. What is sometimes lacking is an objective outsider who is skilled at getting everyone on the same page and moving them powerfully in the same direction.

I possess a unique set of skills and methodologies that enable high-potential leaders and senior executives to improve their personal and team performance through clarity, alignment, and commitment to the purpose and vision of their organizations.

Through our work together, you will not only see immediate improvements in your organization, but you are also likely to experience:

  • Increased self-awareness, focus, and an ability to achieve results with more energy and fewer hassles.
  • Powerful shifts in how you communicate, support others, and juggle the relational nuts and bolts of leading your organization.
  • Renewed inspiration, confidence, creativity, and a greater sense of what is possible in your organization and career.

When might you need executive coaching?

Executive coaching is an efficient, high-impact process that helps high-performing leaders improve results in meaningful and sustainable ways.

But there is more to coaching than achieving immediate results and better performance.

  • Usually, you have good instincts about what to do and need someone who listens well to your concerns, serves as a sounding board, asks probing questions, takes you to where you are avoiding going, and – when appropriate – offers advice and insights about things you might be missing.
  • Sometimes you need a good interviewer who gathers input and advice in a safe, objective, and confidential manner, and facilitates short meetings with a Board of Directors or management team to gather ideas and develop consensus.
  • Sometimes you need someone who conducts training sessions and workshops with current and up-and-coming managers to explore key management topics.
  • You may also need a trusted advisor who helps you make difficult decisions, step out of your comfort zone, stop destructive behavior, embrace change, and shift performance.
  • Often you don't need someone to tell you what you already know, weigh you down with heavy analyses, or help you revise your already overdone Power Point presentation. You need someone who sits down face to face with you to help you improve yourself, serve as a sounding board, provide insights, and help to stay focused, inspired, and resilient in the face of enormous challenges and pressure.
  • Sometimes there are no easy answers and you simply need support in making decisions with incomplete information.
  • You need someone who will stand for your commitment and potential, another human being who knows how to be a "stake in the ground" for what you can be and do. When you waver on the path toward achieving your most ambitious, noble, and inspiring goals, your trusted advisor will not budge.

    “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 has been able to bring out a hidden wisdom and courage in myself, that I hadn't been able to tap into until now.

    "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."
