I help high-impact individuals who are unsure why they aren’t making the career & life progress they desire.
You’re educated, professional, and ambitious. You want to be successful in your career and life.
But there’s a problem…
As a high-impact individual, you’re not making progress as fast as you’d hoped, and you’re unsure of how to speed things up.
You’re tired of being passed over for promotions, and it feels like you are treading water in your career.
And since you aren’t a “below the line thinker,” you are ready to tackle the challenges and overcome the (often self-imposed) obstacles that are holding you back.
This is extremely good news.
Because it means you appreciate that you, and only you, are in control of what you achieve both in your career and in life.
You just need some guidance. And that’s where I can help.
After a 10-year stint in the military and then focusing on my education, I went on to a successful business career holding positions from Captain (R) to Marketing Specialist (IT), Managing Partner to Provost & Chief Academic Officer to President.

"I am senior manager/director at a large multinational corporation. With help of Dr. Shahid I was able to identify my strengths, weaknesses, values and passions which have led not to only greater satisfaction in my current job but also a clear understanding of my next move. He gave me the tools I needed to influence my staff, my colleagues and superiors. I have been working with Dr. Shahid for past 3 months and I have noticed significant improvement in my leadership, coaching and executive capabilities."
CEO, Non-profit Organization
“Although we started the program with skepticism and doubt, all of us quickly realized the power of Executive Leadership Coaching process. For the first time in our organization’s history we established a company Vision, defined Core Values, and started implementing Organizational Goals in a manner that would foster their achievement.”
“The Executive Leadership Coaching process helped us get things done through our employees. We now have a core group of dedicated people who want to make our vision a reality.”

“As a result of our commitment to the Strategic Plan, our revenues are up over 100% from our sales as of this date one year ago.”
CEO, Wealth Advisory
“I have had different people comment on the changes they have observed since the Executive Team Building program started. When I came in here as the new CEO two months ago, this place was like a morgue. Now I believe that our executive team is working together in a collaborative way that I had not seen before.”
CEO & Owner, B2B Service Company
“I never would have believed that we would accomplish the expectations that were set out in the first meeting, but we did! We have only just begun to implement the Strategic Plan and already after only two months, we have increase in revenues than we have ever had and, per plan, we are opening our second location.”
“Executive Coaching made me very aware of myself.”

He understands the need to improve business processes and management practices, insisting on the continual need to question the status quo, and reach-out to all stakeholders with a sincere measure of individual consideration. Most importantly, Dr. Sheikh is remarkably consistent in displaying the very best of inspirational and transformational leadership. Dr. Sheikh’s focus in his practice is overall commitment to inspire the clients while they are increasing productivity and balancing the needs of the organization, which can leave leaders feeling depleted. He believes that well-grounded leaders grow well-grounded companies that stay true to values, while fostering positive relationships among employees and stakeholders. I have been managing my businesses over four years. The type of personnel I would search for to assist in creating a business plan, corporate mission, best practices, and institute a paradigm of inclusivity and commitment to the collective goals is a profile of Dr. Sheikh.
