Lead with confidence

Executive coaching to own your leadership authority.

Make your leadership vision real.

As a leader, you care about the impact you have and how you have it. You lead your team and engagements in a way that aligns with your values. But you have grown your career in environments where you've had to quiet some aspects of yourself in order to be seen and heard. Leadership models around you continue to suggest you need to fit a certain mold, but you're ready to grow your influence in a way that allows you to be more of you -- without the second-guessing and with more peace of mind.

Through executive coaching, we'll build a secure and authentic foundation for your leadership.

  • Focus on the most important drivers of your goals
  • Make clearer and faster decisions with peace of mind
  • Speak directly and with ease, without second-guessing
  • Lead in alignment with your leadership values and motivations
  • Challenge mindsets that make you feel like you have to do it all

Coaching for Introspective Executives

Farah approaches coaching as a relationship designed in service of her client's goals - whether that's confidence-building to speak your mind, or to hit audacious goals. Her engagements build momentum quickly and deliver a sustained impact. Farah and her clients meet virtually. Initial engagements last three or six months. Many leaders extend coaching to keep up the momentum in their growth. Others return to coaching when they face new leadership scenarios. Farah has coached leaders based in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Farah Hussain Executive Coach in black shirt on black background smiling.

Hi, I'm Farah.


I see you: an ambitious leader navigating who and how you want to be.

Like you, I’m no stranger to the push and pull between my authentic self and the pressure to mold my behavior to existing models of leadership.

I advanced quickly in marketing roles over 15+ years in global corporate environments. That was not without my share of internal debates about how I would show up or make decisions in different scenarios. When I was facing a challenge, I learned to stay true to what felt right to me.

Coaching is a path to lasting self-empowerment. It’s why I am a coach, and why I love to coach self-reflective leaders.

I focus on coaching senior people leaders who want to grow their leadership confidence and effectiveness in the organizations and industries where they currently lead.

I’m certified by the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF), with training in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC).
