    Amina Hedayat is an engaging and informative facilitator. Not only did she spend time helping us understand ourselves, but she also gave us essential tools to manage our thought process and emotions to the best of our abilities. I especially loved practicing how to walk confidently. The things I have learned in the confidence workshop can definitely be applied in my workplace as well. I’m constantly collaborating with partners and other co-workers so I found the technics that she taught about thinking of situations to be very beneficial.

    Good evening Amina. I wanted to drop you a quick note, or referral letter if you will. I count the weeks that we spent together incredibly valuable. As you know my professional life had been rocked to the core and I found myself in a place I have never been before both mentally and in my career. I greatly appreciated how you were able to isolate different struggles and help me work through them one by one. I was able to slowly digest what was currently happening and what I wanted for my future. The greatest lesson seemed to be the simplest yet it was the hardest for me, and that was simply re-writing my inner monologue so that I could win. Even just sitting down and listing my strengths so that I could articulate them, was pivotal in the path to healing. The decision matrix was also a key tool for me. There were so many decisions and ideas and thoughts running through my mind it helped me logically and strategically order my priorities so that I can move in the right direction with my career. Amina, you were the right person at the right time in one of the shakiest moments of my career. I greatly appreciate the time that you spent with me and would highly recommend you to anyone that needs some self-discovery and/or direction in their current situation. Thanks again, you are the best!

    Yes, I believe the event was very worthwhile and I found it very beneficial.  Whenever there is such a significant crisis in someone’s life, I think they become more reflective and are looking for ways to again find meaning, hope and joy.  The seminar really puts life in perspective and is a good starting point for reflection.  I would highly recommend continuing it. I think that the facilitator (Amina) was warm, inviting and easy to listen to.  The material was relevant.  I do however, think that she likely had to do a condensed presentation; as I think many of the areas could have been expanded upon; including breaking into small groups or working with a partner; but this would have involved a longer session. However, no complaints I loved it!  My favorite quote is “If you don’t change, there will be no change”.  She reinforced what needs to be done beautifully! The food was also set up in such a nice way, that we were made to feel very special. A big thank you to you and Dr. Mahmood.  You’re the best!

    Amina’s ability to help me to understand my leadership qualities and style was a tremendous benefit.  She also helped me to see and acknowledge other strengths but get over the fear and concern that acknowledging those strengths is arrogant. Working with Amina was effective, insightful and pleasant and a more than worthwhile investment.

    As a life coach, I found Amina to be a patient and generous listener and very insightful.  Her ability to help me to understand my leadership qualities and style was a tremendous benefit.  She also helped me to see and acknowledge other strengths but get over the fear and concern that acknowledging those strengths is arrogant.  Arrogance doesn’t come from acknowledging your strengths, the potential for arrogance is in how you utilize your strengths; do your strengths make you better than someone else?  This was a huge insight that impacted my self perception and helped me become an even more effective leader. Working with Amina was effective, insightful and pleasant and a more than worthwhile investment.

    I had serious issues dealing with what I want in my career and my life path. I seriously didn’t know what to do. I was recommended Mrs. Amina. Everyone talked about her professionalism and patience with her clients and students. I am almost done with my course, and, actually, I can see the difference. She is a good listener and analyzes every detail; she follows up promptly and has been a great support. Now I can say that things had become more apparent. I know very well my strengths and values. I learned how to create my out goals and follow them. I knew how to transmit between different emotional levels, and I knew my vision, which helped me a lot through my professional and personal life. I cannot thank her enough for the amount of knowledge she provided me to go through, coaching me through the difficult times that I have been through.
