What I learned from being in a coaching relationship was that often it’s just important to take a different perspective. Farzana helped me clarify my goals, strategies and implement a plan towards achieving those goals, and, importantly, see things I had subconsciously blocked myself from seeing. Giving myself both the time and permission to focus on myself was transformational. With the support and guidance of Farzana I was able to focus on what really mattered to me, and to change my mindset to one that supported my career journey to where I am today.

Farzana was an amazing breath of fresh air. She totally understands the context in which lawyers operate, and was ceaseless in her effort to pose questions and ask me to think about what I could possibly do differently in order to help me attain more satisfaction, not only with my career, but with my life in general. It was truly one of the first steps I had taken to look at my life as a whole. Since working with Farzana I have brought in life-changing habits including a daily meditation practice, which has not only helped me be a better lawyer, as I’m much less stressed-out, but I can actually enjoy life! I highly recommend working with Farzana.

I have really appreciated Farzana’s professional advice. Working with her allowed me to safely vent my concerns, worries and frustrations. I really value the firm that I work for so it was refreshing to hear Farzana’s perspectives and thoughts on how I should proceed with some of my frustrations. It has enabled me to improve my professional interactions in general. Thank you!

Working with Farzana enabled me to see how my way of thinking was actually holding me back from what is truly important in my life. By challenging my perspective, I became a better partner and a more effective trainer in the workplace.

I attended an unconscious bias course, which was a bite size session, fitting nicely into the busy day. The set up and introduction by Farzana gave a very clear overview of what to expect. Professional actors acted out a three-way conference call scenario demonstrating some shocking behaviour. Although the session was well over 6 months ago the behaviours I saw were so contrary to a conducive working environment, that the ‘right way’ to do things, which we in turn discussed as a group, truly resonated and I have put them into practice in my working environment. Thanks Farzana!
