Meet Wardah

A Certified Executive Coach and NLP Practitioner  with over two decades of experience in global leadership roles with renowned companies such as Etihad Airways, Airbnb, and Louis Vuitton.

Having traversed the globe and lived in dynamic cities like UAE, New York, Montreal, and Singapore, Wardah brings a wealth of cultural insights and a deep understanding of international business environments to her coaching practice.

My Story

A Journey of Discovery and Resilience

Born to Middle Eastern parents in Singapore, Wardah’s upbringing was a blend of cultural diversity and personal ambition. Determined to connect with her cultural roots in the middle east, she forged ahead with determination to move to the UAE, embarking on a journey with Emirates Airlines in 1998. Although faced with initial rejections, Wardah fearlessly broke through barriers, and that bold move transformed her life forever.

Defying the Odds and Breaking Barriers

Wardah’s journey from a modest beginning as a cabin crew member to the heights of corporate leadership, stands as a testament to her unwavering determination and relentless pursuit of excellence. In a world where gender biases and societal norms often dictate the trajectory of a woman’s career, Wardah refused to be confined by these limitations. Instead, she forged ahead, breaking barriers and shattering glass ceilings along the way, achieving the position of C-Suite Executive with a government organization in Saudi Arabia.

Empowering Others and Driving Success

As a trailblazer and mentor, Wardah’s mission extends beyond her personal achievements. With over two decades of experience mentoring thousands of individuals, Wardah pioneered coaching programs within organizations like Etihad Airways and Abu Dhabi Airport, back in 2014 beginning with a group of 20 coaches and growing the team to over 200+ coaches. The program led to multiple awards for Eithad Airways including Best Cabin Crew, awarded by the World Travel Awards, in 2015. 

So...Why Choose Me As Your Coach?

My journey, though riddled with obstacles, equipped me with unique insights and experiences. My struggles with imposter syndrome, fear of speaking up, and navigating male-dominated spaces mirrored the struggles of countless others.

My journey wasn’t just about personal growth; it was about paving the way for others facing similar challenges. It was about breaking barriers, challenging norms, and fostering environments where WOMEN could thrive, and confidently share their ideas.

So why me? Because choosing me as your coach means choosing a partner who is not only dedicated to your happiness and success but who also understands the challenges you face, and is committed to helping you overcome them.

With over 20+ years of firsthand experience in the corporate world, I bring a wealth of practical knowledge to my clients. I help them navigate stubborn pain points, such as:

  • Finding clarity on your life purpose
  • Defining clear goals and staying on track
  • Identify and unblock unresolved emotions
  • Planning the next chapter of your professional career
  • Navigating toxic work relationships so your worth is never questioned again
  • Overcoming imposter syndrome and self doubt so that you can continue thriving
