"What I appreciated most about the sessions with Nermine were that it led me to focus less on the jobs I wanted and more on the career path that best suited my strengths.

 

Each session was a deeper dive into defining what motivates me, identifying and explaining experiences that reflected each strength, and gaining a better understanding about what I need in a career.

 

Most importantly, I shifted my perspective about it being a job hunt to my interviewing the company and its employees to see if they’re a fit for me, knowing what I bring to the table. 

 

Nermine shows you how to put the power in your hands to shape your career path, challenge yourself to explore a better sense of who you are and what you’re capable of, and identify different industries and roles that fit your strengths, skill set, and past work experience."

Creative Director

 

We engaged Nermine for a half-day Strengths workshop as a team-building exercise and it paid off in ways we never expected!

We work closely and collaboratively in a highly creative—and often deadline-driven—environment, which can be stressful. Prior to the workshop, personality differences could sometimes result in frustration, especially when under pressure.

The workshop helped us recognize the strengths resident in each member of our team, which has gone a long way to fostering better understanding and collaboration in the months since.

 

We’ve been able to appreciate why each of us contribute the way we do and better utilize our unique perspectives.

Thank you, Nermine, for helping us transition to a more empowering way of working!

I started coaching because I had started a new position in my company. I found myself questioning my ability to do the job. I felt I had an entirely different skill set than what was required. I really wanted to be successful, but I knew that if I didn’t find a way to use my talents, I would never survive this new promotion.

  

I realized so many strengths that I had not even recognized as such! This was priceless, I started seeing opportunities to use them in all I was doing. The strategies I learned for decision making, peer relationships and career goal setting all have proved invaluable.

 

Not only did my journey lead me through a successful year in my new role, it gave me courage to switch into a new career path. This new career not only utilizes the full spectrum of my strengths, it brings personal peace and satisfaction.

 

The biggest lesson that I learned through this process is that your strengths go with you! Wherever you are called. Wherever you find yourself, you bring all this new knowledge of yourself with you. I no longer identify myself with my company branding, I am myself. I have incredible talents and strengths and I have the ability to use them in any and every capacity. This is more than coaching, it’s freedom!

Having Nermine as a Strengths Coach was an incredible experience. Thanks to her program I learned innate strengths that I never knew that I had.

 

Everything from my personal life to my professional life has improved as a result of Nermine's program.

 

I would recommend Nermine as a Strengths coach to anyone looking to make strides in their personal development.
 

 

"Participating in a strengths workshop through the Brainery, I was amazed not only at the accuracy of the results but at the insights gained working with the small group. Having only scratched the surface, I met further with Nermine in a 1:1 Discovery Coaching session. What a great gift I received as she led me through introspection gently and encouragingly.

 

I rediscovered many good parts of me that I had left dormant or denied. Getting back in touch with the Real Me has made me a Better Me...


...and I can't thank Nermine enough."

"I had a 1:1 Strengths coaching session with Nermine Zakhary because I wanted to be able to better define and highlight my skills when I started to look for a new job. Based on our conversation, I was able to tell a story on what my strengths were and how they positively impacted my work with concrete examples and workplace scenarios.

The coaching session helped me tremendously during my job search. I was able to use my strengths to answer the interview questions Tell me about Yourself or Why Should I Hire You because I could explain what my strengths were and how they helped me do my job better.  I was the only person in a job search class who could list my strengths and discuss them in STAR stories (Situation, Task, Action, and Results).

I would recommend Nermine’s Discovery coaching session to anyone who would like to discover how they can use their strengths in both their professional and personal lives.

This coaching session would benefit high-school students identify their strengths to help them decide their future careers and courses for college or vocational school. It would also help job seekers build their confidence so they can clearly define the value their strengths could bring to a company during an interview or help them transfer their strengths to a new field or industry."

Carrie M.

Housing Director at YWCA Rochester

"The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County was interested in finding a consultant or program that would help us move towards our vision of becoming a trauma-informed organization.  Our staff manage cases that are complex, involve a lot of vicarious trauma and require diverse talent to ensure our teams function effectively.    

 

Nermine introduced our team to the Playing to Your Strengths Workshop which was enormously accepted and valued by staff. 

Staff recognized talents they didn’t know they had and it was fun to see the strengths of our teammates so we could identify ways to blend these talents together to become a more productive team.   
 
This endeavor greatly improved staff wellness and morale and we continue to use our strengths in ways that are complimentary and productive."
