Nadia Merdassi is a great Leadership Coach and Business Coach. I have had the great opportunity to work with Nadia as my supervisor, and I would like to highlight some of her skills and capabilities. Nadia exudes confidence and she articulately communicates with colleagues with clarity in all her discussions. Her confident demeanor makes colleagues trust and respect her decisions. She is also open minded, and she respectfully and actively listens to the other colleagues points of view, and engages in dialogues, with staff with wide-ranging views in order to have more honest, productive conversations. It is important to mention, that I have also witnessed the incredible way in which she managed conflicts at the Visitor Center through coaching and mentoring colleagues. In addition, she is great at giving and receiving positive and negative feedback appropriately. Her feedback is also very constructive, and it helped me to progress in my career. Nadia also has a pro-active approach to developing new and innovative knowledge for the institution. She rigorously and constantly facilitated reviews of the lessons learned from various initiatives undertaken at the World Bank Group Visitors center. This helped in informing the tweaks to future projects, which ensured that similar projects were even more successful. I am sure that her work as a Leadership Coach & Business coach will benefit all parties.Antoniya Bobeva
