Deep Dive Coaching

My individual or group coaching plans can help you learn to lead your team through uncertain times and take them from chaos to clarity.

Change happens to us, while disruption happens within us.

My learning path to help you build a resilient employee experience is based on three building blocks:

Awareness to Understanding

Build Understanding

When you build understanding, you help your employees move from awareness to understanding. Awareness involves perception, whilst understanding involves knowledge.

Emotional Intelligence

Building Competencies and Skills

Build new skills and competencies rooted in emotional intelligences to give your employees the resiliency toolbox they need to thrive in the workplace.

Routine - Reward - Cue

Build New Habits

Build habits through a personalized habit loop so the change you are implementing sticks and is sustainable for the long haul.

The blueprint for building a resilient employee experience

1) Set a baseline.

Through a scientifically validated assessment tool, I will help you and your teams leverage the power of emotional intelligence to lead their teams during challenging, uncertain and changing times. You can choose between individual leadership or team reports.

2) Define what success looks like and articulate the vision for success.

What are the parameters, what are the challenges and obstacles, and what are the opportunities? Once you establish your outcome and you become clear on your vision, that’s when you can get your team onboard by articulating the vision in their map of the world.

3) Develop and define your prioritized roadmap towards success.

Now that we are clear on where you are and what needs to change, we will focus on how you get there by creating a prioritized roadmap. Through Specific – Measurable – Achievable – Realistic – Tangible (SMART) objectives, you will be able to measure the effectiveness of your roadmap to success.

4) Develop your execution strategy and use your resiliency toolbox.

Equip yourself with the emotional intelligence toolbox you need to implement your roadmap on a day-to-day basis. We will use a combination of sounding board and visualization techniques to help you feel confident in your roadmap to success.

5) Integrate the execution process in your day-to-day life.

To achieve your vision, to implement your roadmap successfully, we will develop a plan to integrate all areas of your life. During this last part, we will focus on learning how to manage your energy in addition to managing your time and increase your well-being in those life areas where it is most needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?

My name is Nadja El Fertasi, a seasoned crisis management and human resilience expert. I worked for nearly two decades in the world’s largest crisis management and security organization in the world, NATO. I now help people-centric C-suite leaders achieve cybersecurity preparedness and build a resilient employee experience through digital emotional intelligence trainings.

What do you mean with people-centric C-suite leaders?

Cultural change can only be successful if the top leadership is committed to internal transformation. A transformation where employees are valued and recognized as the glue within the organization. 

What kind of C-suite leaders do you work with?

I help the CEO of the company build a resilient collaboration, communication and coordination foundation across their senior executive leadership team. 

How are you helping C-suite leaders specifically?

I am on a mission to help the C-Suite build a resilient employee experience fit for the digital decade through emotional intelligence strategies. 

Cybersecurity is a technical security problem, not a people one

More than 90% of cyberattacks begin with social engineering techniques, the use of deception to manipulate individuals into divulging confidential or personal information that may be used for fraudulent purposes. Criminals and scammers use emotional manipulation techniques to get access into your digital footprint and hack your employees and your data.

I still don't understand the link with resilience

The absence of human resilience, people’s ability to bounce back from adversity and not break under pressure, increases the human surface attack. Criminals have higher success rates in scamming by preying on their negative emotions through increase in fear, stress and distractions. Or they build up their positive emotions, connect through rapport and gain their trust to execute their criminal activities.

What businesses do you work with?

I work with corporations, small and medium size businesses and start-ups in the tech and fintech industry where protecting shareholder and customer data is a top priority.

What does success look like if I work with you?

At the beginning of our journey, we develop a vision for your success and dive deep into the building blocks of readiness, resilience and preparedness. We will identify what and how that looks like for your you, for your teams and for your organization. The achievement of your roadmap is a progressive experience measured through milestones. Every milestone achieved, is a celebration for success. At the end of your roadmap, the process of execution in a challenging environment becomes second nature to you, and to your teams.

How can I trust you?

Building trust takes time and business chemistry. It is not up to me to convince you with my words, but to show you with my results. That’s why I offer a journey as a basis for our partnership. We start with trainings or online courses before moving on to coaching and consulting projects. Through my free employee resiliency course, you can get a taste of what it would feel like to work with me on building your resilient employee experience within your team and/or organization.

What are your rates?
