In 2017 I was fortunate to have Executive Coaching with Sleiman Abou-Hamdan. The sessions were driven by Sleiman but guided by myself. Each week Sleiman would pick up on previous sessions and together we would reflect on developments during that period of time.
Sleiman was a master of questioning and probing to really understand where I was and where I needed to be. He would ask the most challenging of questions and make me really work to understand what was required and what would gain maximal benefit for my personal development. I could not sit there and be spoon fed results, it was me who knew the answers and Sleiman lead me to organise the answers to the most pressing of questions and to orchestrate solutions to my problems.
During my period of coaching I spent a lot of time discussing resilience at an Executive level. I left each session being energised and believing in my own ability. I not only learnt a lot of skills, I also felt entirely comfortable discussing areas I perceived as my own weaknesses and opened up to Sleiman who never judged but listened and guided with expertise
I would highly recommend the coaching offered by Sleiman and I know I speak on behalf of many others who also reflected on the great benefits of his skills.

Manager People Development, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
“Sleiman understands what true partnerships look like. He worked with us to understand our context, culture and challenges and then provided advice as to how our learning programs and other interventions could support the Department’s goals. His work with us covered a range of L&D interventions, from workshops at conferences, to facilitating one day and multi day programs. Feedback from participants was always very positive“
Director, Leadership and Learning, Australian Government Department
“Sleiman developed and led a Discovery Workshop for my branch in 2017. The workshop was an important activity for my team as it provided them with a professionally facilitated opportunity to explore those aspects of our work in which they’d like to see changes/improvements. Sleiman had excellent insights in relation to this exercise and the workshop ran very smoothly under his leadership. I’d be very happy to engage him for any future work of this nature.”
General Manager, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
“Sleiman has worked for us for a number of years on programs such as performance conversations, leading and managing change and transformational change. He is well prepared and extremely knowledgeable with a very warm presence. He is able to listen to participants and adapt material according to the needs of the room. He has also run mini focus groups for us as part of a training program the results of which have given us insight into what is working well and not so well in the workplace. He is also very good at discerning the learning need during client conversations and developing programs to meet the need in an engaging and rigorous way. I highly recommend Sleiman as a consultant, facilitator and presenter.”
