Coaching Philosophy 

Having spent all my professional life in the people business ("Human Resources"), I have come to believe that everyone has the potential to discovering their own answers in terms of who they are, what they want, and how to get there. More often than not, what gets in the way are obstacles such as limiting beliefs, fear, lack of belief in oneself etc. 

I see coaching as a way of creating a safe space for a thought-provoking conversation that inspires my clients to identify and overcome their own boundaries in order to reach their potential. In that process, I, the coach, abide by the ICF Code of Ethics and adhere to the  fundamental principles of coaching such as confidentiality, professionalism, active listening, and presence. 

Client Testimonials

Below are coaching clients I've had the honor and privilege to work with. 

Charles L., Executive Director in Human Services field
"I began working with Oumar at a critical time. I was facing staff changes and needed to make some assessments and decisions about whether it was right for me to stay and guide the organization to its next chapter or if was time for me to step aside and let others write it. Oumar and I talked about my strengths and weaknesses, and he helped me identify strategies to address the areas I felt less confident in. Oumar’s insights and practical suggestions from his years in human resources are helping me grow as a professional.

Nadine B., Executive in Training and Consulting
"I Oumar's lovely personality shines thru his coaching style. He comes across as caring, gentle and direct, smart, considerate, experienced, professional always. Scheduling regular times to check in adds the structure and milestones I need to actually do the thinking/ work I SAY I want to do but rarely make time for!"
