One-on-one Sparring


“If you are in the market for a sparring partner who will pat you on the back and tell you what you like to hear, then I am afraid that I can’t help you” – Soulaima Gourani

 

“Don’t be defined by what you didn’t know or didn’t do. You’re deciding your life right now.”

 

Soulaima Gourani cuts through the crap!

Good sparring is about getting qualified input, new inspiration, and specific tools. A sparring process can have a long or short duration—it is about enabling you to perform at your best as a leader no matter what challenges you are facing. A good sparring partner is necessary for you to develop optimally.

Soulaima Gourani can help you live your life with integrity and get the best out of all situations you are in – even if they are painful. You need someone who can surprise you with unexpected and different views on your situation, someone who can make you leave habitual thinking and daily operations behind to turn your focus toward the more important long-term strategic goals—for you as a leader and for the company as a whole.

Soulaima Gourani can help you to figure out what really matters! 

“In the process, we will take a closer look at your self-image and deal with bad habits, self-sabotage, bias, values and your missions. I will ask all the annoying, relevant, provocative, and politically incorrect questions that you have gotten used to not asking yourself anymore.

You don’t pay me to get a pat on the back, and therefore, you will get a down-to-earth, crystal clear, and sometimes quite harsh description of how to move the company to the desired future situation, which likely will require a bit of digestion and legwork in the organization.”

“I take off the kid gloves when I am sparring with a business leader to quickly move beyond your reflex-based objections and get into the heart of the problems—where you really can move yourself and the company to a higher level. In this process, I am your online coach, mentor, provocateur, anarchist, and initiator.

Afterwards, you will feel more free, inspired and energetic. You will be a stronger and a more  trustworthy leader. You will have gained new knowledge, new angles, and a contagious energy that you can transform into concrete changes and measurable results!”

—Soulaima Gourani

 

How the individual sparring is structured

The role as sparring partner requires great personal involvement and focus. Therefore, Soulaima only offers to act as the personal sparring partner for three leaders per year. This way, you will be guaranteed to receive her full attention and the best qualified sparring. A sparring process is individually designed to match your needs and your company’s current and desired future situation. We start with a personal conversation where the form and scope of the process are laid out. Soulaima helps you analyze and better understand your challenges, and together, you find the right way to get you where you want to be both personally and professionally.

Testimonials

“Our last sparring session was great, although I’m sure you know that. You’re amazing. I can’t imagine there’s a Danish (or American) lecturer – or manager, for that sake – who wouldn’t gain a lot from sparring with you.”
Lone Thier
Lecturer, Denmark

“I wholeheartedly recommend sparring with Soulaima. She has an impeccably ability to see where you are in your process and help you take the next step from there. Soulaima’s main strengths are her energy and her ability to think big on behalf of her clients. I’ve made a lot of progress, both in terms of my personal life, but also in terms of what I thought was professionally possible. She isn’t scared to scare her network either, which is a gesture that goes much further than the traditional coach-client relationship. A session with her will leave you happy and full of energy. And thank you for our last sparring session! It made it much easier for me to find the energy and start in the right place.”
