We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome, and times we feel stuck.
You’re educated, professional, and ambitious, and you want to be successful.
But there’s a problem…
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.
You haven’t had a raise in two years—nor a promotion.
But something is holding you back…
If you don’t want to be like most, you want to take control of your future.
Taking control by finding out what is holding you back…
Taking control as you go from one opportunity to the next, whether inside or outside the company.
Because you aren’t a “below the line thinker,” you are ready to overcome the obstacles that are holding you back.
Because you appreciate that you, and only you, are in control of what you achieve both in your career and life.
Perhaps it’s a good time to take control of your career (I consider owning your own business as a career).
Step 1: Assessing and learning about yourself
Step 2: Developing your career or business-related profile
Step 3: Researching the market and targeting where you are headed
Step 4: Personal Branding and Pre-Marketing
Step 5: Marketing You
Step 6: Onboarding and Continuous Personal Branding
Perhaps it’s an excellent time to take control of your career (or business).
And that’s where I can help.
Partnering with a broad-based coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
Perhaps now is a good time to take control of your career.
After a 10-year stint in the military and then focusing on my education, I went on to a successful entrepreneur and career ranging for three successful small business startups, Captain (R), Marketing Specialist (IT), Managing Partner to Provost & Chief Academic Officer to President

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Shahid to develop a career plan and focus on what matters the most. He taught me how to engage and manage the team effectively. I learned from him that to be successful at work, one needs to be more inclusive with the senior management and always project high energy and enthusiasm. He taught me how to be perceived as a problem solver and not the problem itself. During my conversations with him, I learned effective time management, email composing tips and techniques, document management, the importance of follow-up, and the importance of choosing the battles and attention to detail. He turns complicated to simple and makes implementation easy. Dr. Shahid Sheikh has earned my respect as a career coach, and I recommend him as a career coach. I am sure that people will benefit from his immense experience.Amit Ray
Dr. Sheikh is an exceptional coach and a brilliant individual. In our work together he always demonstrated professionalism, understanding, and a true talent for bringing out the best in people. His seemingly bottomless supply of knowledge and insights are a testament to his experience and intellect. His patience, compassion, and drive demonstrate Shahid's deep mastery of leadership. I consider him to be a genuine role model for anyone who strives for excellence. He has my full respect, highest confidence, and deepest gratitude.Patrick Doss

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, Wealth Advisory

I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Dr. Shahid Sheikh. Dr. Sheikh is the principal executive and business coach with Significant Consulting Associates (SCA). SCA offers services that transform business leaders and their organizations using proven tools for people performance improvement and organizational performance excellence. He has demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge, understanding, and acumen of the array of nuances in business and management related issues, specifically in People Performance Improvement and Organizational Performance Excellence. Dr. Sheikh is approachable, an excellent listener, and a person of passion about the necessity of providing nothing short of excellence in helping his clients. Dr. Sheikh understands the frustration and lost opportunities resulting from poor communication channels. As executive coach and management consultant, Dr. Sheikh works hand-in-hand with business and organizational leaders to create a culture where corporate values and mission statements are clearly defined and communicated. 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. If you are looking for an executive coach and management consultant to help you work through some changes that will have a positive influence on your company, I believe Dr. Sheikh can make a difference with your company. Please feel free to contact me should you have questions or want to discuss Dr. Sheikh’s qualifications.President and CEO, California
