I have been working with Naila over the past 2 academic years in my role as a middle leader. Naila finds a way to draw out the answer to my own questions and dilemmas through questions and exercises that give me strategies which I regularly use. My time with Naila always gives me clarity and my next steps forward, she gives me the confidence and empowerment to stay true to my core values and beliefs.Each time I see Naila results in the passion for my career being reignited and it burns all the brighter for seeing her.
Naila is approachable, personable, always professional but warm and funny making it easy to create a trusting relationship.
1 session with Naila per term has done more for me than any course or meeting or other coaching session in my 9 years of teaching.
Naila’s effect and the impact her coaching has had on my life has me now seeking Naila out even if I was to leave the current workplace where she is brought into.
I cannot recommend Naila enough, but you must be prepared to work on and engage in the things she works on you with and you will find the time is not wasted!
