The Center for WorkLife and Dr. Hedayati helped me to have a much more in-depth understanding of my opportunities as a business leader and very importantly, to be able to connect on a deeper level with my direct reports, upon whom our everyday success depends on. This is the kind of investment that will pay for itself – many times over!
I can’t say enough about Dr. Hedayati and the Center for Work Life! Through the coaching process, she helped me analyze my core functions and responsibilities in order to identify those which have the highest return on financial and emotional investment and to separate them from others which I now delegate as my practice continues to grow. She was quick in realizing the relationship challenges I faced in my network, and guided my development with clear expectations. I’m making more money and having more fun – and my clients are getting even better service. Dr. Hedayati’s program was detailed and analytical but easy to follow and produced great results. I’m so grateful!
We had the distinct pleasure of working with Farnaz Namin-Hedayati, Ph.D., Center for Work Life, for the past couple of years when she was the keynote speaker for two of our Central Florida Employment Council workshops. I was very impressed with Farnaz both as a presenter, motivator and professional. We are thrilled to say that her skill as a trainer kept our diverse group fully engaged. Here presentations are extremely powerful and practical! Whether you want to improve and expand your team’s skills or just stretch their comfort zone, the course Conflict Management was amazing. Although many of her ideas were new, everyone found it easy to understand these new and inspiring concepts about Management Models for Resolving Conflict in the Workplace. The feedback has been positive all around and we look forward to working with her once again in the near future.
Eprentise hired Dr. Namin to assist us on in a human resources and employee development project. As a coach and mentor, she was extremely knowledgeable and professional, used a structured methodology that worked in a very short time, and helped both the employee and myself gain insight and understandanding of the barriers to be able to communicate the issues effectively. As a result of working with her, we are saving investment capital in our hiring efforts, and getting better results with our current talent, and are able to address team related issues before they become problems. I would recommend Dr. Farnaz as a coach for any organization that is serious about getting results. I have since sought her services through various other professional organizations and found her to be delightful to work with. She is bright, articulate, and very personable. She is driven and goal-oriented, and manages the client’s time well.
As an executive, I hired the help of Dr. Farnaz to help balance my communication and investor relations. She is an amazing psychologist! Very dedicated to her client’s growth, extremely insightful, compassionate and objective. As the words psychiatrist denotes, the art of healing the heart or the science of mending the soul, I believe Farnaz to be well studied and found her to be very helpful. She is very well educated with respect to diverse backgrounds and beliefs and we worked very well together, as she helped me get through some of life ‘s toughest struggles. Farnaz gave me tools that I needed to help me refocus myself through a time of confusion and challenge. I recommend her highly.
Working with Dr. Hedayati, I experienced profound results in more than one category within executive and business coaching: dealing with work-related interpersonal conflict effectively through the cultivation of emotional intelligence, has helped me be a much stronger problem solver and a passionate driver of change. In the time we worked together, I was able to achieve tremendous progress in all categories. She was like a surgeon in her ability to pin-point the roots of the pain. Dr. Hedayati provided quality guidance in moving me forward. By the time the formal sessions were completed, my career had taken off. I had moved into a more satisfying career path and doubled my salary in the process. I worked through the things I needed to do while enjoying the working relationship and would certainly revisit the process with her as needed. I highly recommend her! Very well worth the investment!
