"An organization is only as strong as its leadership. Amina, through her coaching, has made me a stronger leader. She comes to the table with an open mind and helps you find your strengths, your voice and helps to guide you in the best direction. There is no hidden agenda. She comes with a rich history that allows her to see things with a different lens. She empowered me to be a better leader and better boss and a better visionary for the organization.  Amina is very skilled at bringing the thing you don’t see about yourself, your organizations, and your leadership out of the dark."
