THE FOUNDER

GHIDA BARAKAT

EXECUTIVE & LEADERSHIP COACH

MY TRUE FULFILLMENT CAME FROM SUPPORTING MY TRAINEES, FROM NAVIGATING MY TEAM TO CLAIM THEIR OWN LEADERSHIP AND FROM GUIDING THEM TO SKILLFULLY STEERING DIFFERENT SITUATIONS ON A PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL LEVEL.

Armed with a bachelor degree in Business Administration, I spent over 15 years climbing the corporate ladders of some of the leading companies in the Middle East, such as National Bank of Kuwait, Al Shaya Group and Al Humaizi Group – LSH; a career path marked with regional leadership positions that had me working directly with decision makers and CEOs, as well as leading full-fledged departments. Throughout my professional experience, I developed and facilitated training and coaching programs for thousands of professionals and witnessed the development of many individuals. I was in awe of the untapped potential of some of my colleagues, and the developmental opportunities that were yet to be claimed.

 

It then became clear to me – that my true fulfillment came from supporting my trainees, from navigating my team to claim their own leadership and from guiding them to skillfully steering different situations on a personal and professional level. My strong devotion and commitment towards empowering people to eliminate roadblocks, to create breakthroughs from their limiting beliefs in both skills and mindset, and to unlock their hidden talents and cultivate them into actions, was the driving force behind my career shift. I decided to put my eagerness, experience and talent in service of making a difference on a bigger scale and become a full-time certified coach and trainer, to reach and impact more individuals and organizations.

THIS LEAP OF FAITH, GROWING PASSION AND COMMITMENT,

PAVED THE PATH TOWARDS THE BIRTHING OF LEAP! 

Completing all certification required, I have become an Executive and Leadership Coach, Facilitator and Trainer specialized in transformational and executive development, with a distinct talent of assisting people in attaining high levels of performance and effectiveness. I am recognized for my genuine love of connecting with people, my immense belief in human capabilities, and my passion for unlocking the hidden and untapped potential and determination for challenging people beyond the limits they’ve defined for themselves to make them realize their own innate power.  Working closely with teams and Individuals from diverse backgrounds and in fast moving environments allowed me to understand what makes people tick and what drives them from and towards their true potential and goals.

 

Along the years, I have honed a high intuition and ability to uncover the possibilities and opportunities that are present for those I work with. With my guidance, their eyes open to the wide horizon of choices they have, and they start taking action.
