Thank you sincerely for all your guidance over the past 18 months. It has been invaluable to help set myself up for success in this new role. I feel so much more confident in my career now and that has had a positive impact on every aspect of my life.
Our graduate students are entering a competitive and changing job market where skills such as negotiation and networking are critical to success. Lisa Morgan and Shahnaz Broucek from OptimizeU took the time to learn about our students and break down intimidating concepts such as negotiating and networking in ways that made it fun and practical.
I am impressed with Lisa and Shahnaz’s knowledge, strong presentation style, customized material, and tailored techniques for practicing. Our students have greatly benefited from these OptimizeU presentations.
It is without any hesitation that I recommend Shahnaz Broucek. Her performance as our Executive Coach was instrumental to the success FordDirect achieved during our challenges associated with change management, hyper-growth, team development and leadership growth.
Shahnaz's professional experience as an auditor, business owner and senior executive provides her the ability to relate to all the business challenges that leadership teams tackle today. I can personally attest that her experience and knowledge combined with Shahnaz's ability to listen, engage, and connect with her clients produces amazing results. Simply put, she helps her clients get "unstuck" yielding improved productivity, team cohesiveness, and business results.
Above all, Shahnaz is grounded in traditional core values and what I admire most is her unwavering integrity and passion for being a coach, she loves what she does. I found it to be a stroke of great fortune to have met Shahnaz and work with our organization. If her performance in our company were any indication of how she would perform in others, undeniably Shahnaz would be a tremendous asset.
I reached out to Shahnaz for assistance in working through a series of challenges that had come up during a critical point in my career. Through our coaching sessions, I learned a number of communication methods that significantly improved my ability to get to my desired outcome. A new promotional opportunity presented itself within our first six months working together and would not have happened without the exceptional coaching experience.
