Her Style:

Farnaz believes that your vision whether for yourself or your organization determines your reality.  As a psychologist, through both her change management expertise as well as her career planning background, she strongly subscribes to the process of inquiry, and the alignment between the authentic self and the vision for growth. Organizations and people often times fall victim to trying to be what they are not.

Dr. Namin leads the path to realizing your competitive advantage and helps you walk that path from your vision to reality.

What Sets Her Apart

Having lived in various countries around the world, with a career path as a psychologist and an organization development consultant, Farnaz’s business acumen and communication style has been shaped through the influence of various cultures spanning from her work in the Far and the Middle East, to Europe and the Americas.  Farnaz doesn’t believe someone’s academic education necessarily indicates how well they work with people.  She believes that first hand experience working with diverse cultural backgrounds, especially within their national origin is what provides the highest level of education in people.  She believes public speaking to be a form of Art rather than just a form of communication as many believe.  The reason for this is that she believes not every speaker is able to win the hearts of the audience in tone and content, but its only that speaker is able to truly “speak” to the audience.

Although her presentations are rich in  breadth of knowledge of global engagement efforts and multi-cultural business models, delivered with strong relevance and provocation of critical thinking, from the moment she walks into a room, she is able to intrigue an incredidble, heart felt, thought provoking and uplifting human connection.

Her Qualifications

As an Industrial/organizational psychologist, charged with the role of key Psychologist with the State of Florida, Farnaz has a defining role in the development of key strategies and plans within the overal workforce of the State of Florida.  She has served as an executive coach and organization change agent within various government and private organizations around the globe.   Because of her expertise in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, she is very current on global and economical shifts in leadership and workforce related issues and works tirelessly to solve workforce dilemmas that effect public policy and women’s rights within the landscape of employment law.
