First and foremost, I would like to thank Dr. Idrisa Abdul-Hamid for reintroducing me to strategies for effective leadership. Effective leadership is about trust and involvement from your staff and when your staff trust you and your leadership style you will gain more productivity from them. The StrengthFinders workshop was awesome, and this assessment allowed me to learn more about myself and my partner strengths, as well as the strengths of our staff. Lastly, I was able to see my staff discover their hidden talents that was in them all along and now the goal is to continue to cultivate those strengths as a leader.
This workshop has been an amazing tool for me, it has strengthened my mindset to become a leader in my company. I learned how to strategize my thoughts as I lead my business to great success with my business partner and team. Dr. Idrisa Abdul-Hamid has changed the dynamic of our office by giving us the necessary tools to strive for excellence. I would like to thank you Dr. Idrisa Abdul-Hamid President/CEO of PRGG, LLC for this opportunity and look forward to continuing using your service in the near future.
I had the pleasure of meeting Idrisa while working at Houston Independent School District. I explained my concerns for a department that I inherited. After explaining my concerns to her, she coached me in the following ways.
- After listening to me and others on my team, Idrisa scheduled targeted events strategically to help build my team culturally so that we all could learn how to work together as a team.
- Idrisa focused all of us on how to do our part toward reaching and achieving our departmental goals.
- Clearly, her targeted developmental exercises informed us about the importance of knowing the differences between each employee and how, by knowing those differences, we could embrace them as we work together.
- Materials were provided that we can resort to at our leisure, which she actually used in a team exercise. As a result, we all got to know each other better and we found ways on how we can change our approach depending the personality type of each co-worker.
- I strongly recommend Dr. Idrisa A. Hamid for the variety of professional services that she provides and especially her team building exercises.
