25 EXECUTIVE COACHING We hear from Samia Shehadeh - a seasoned Leadership Coaching and Business Psychologist with a track record that spans almost three decades. Helping individuals and organisations excel, she has empowered effective self, team and organisation leadership, and has worked internationally with blue-chip organisations, government and leading management consultancies PwC, SHL and IBM to deliver substantial change projects and leadership and culture development. Today, Samia coaches leaders and high-performing individuals, supporting them and their organisations to lead themselves and others to act and be a force for good. She believes that leadership of others begins first with the leadership of self and works diligently to connect her clients’ inner being to outward doing, so they can act with increased congruence, alignment and integrity through a renewed sense of purpose and energy. Samia has lived in seven different countries on three continents and travelled extensively, having witnessed social and economic disparity and substantial planetary ecosystem changes. It is through this lens of experience that she views complex contemporary issues and recognises the importance of empowering those around her. She is especially interested in enabling the Sustainability agenda to become systemic.
