A Chartered Business Psychologist, OD Expert, facilitator, and Executive Coach, Faiza brings over 18 years of experience helping organisations and leaders develop high performing cultures. Faiza’s grounded and commercial approach is built on a strong foundation of both consulting across various business sectors including mainly FTSE 100 companies as well as experience working in-house within the financial services sector.
Faiza gained particular recognition, supporting a six-year culture transformation as part of a business turn-around at Old Mutual, a £13.7 billion international investment, savings, insurance, and banking group with over 16million customers worldwide. The Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT) played a central role in connecting culture with purpose, customer, strategy, and performance. The Old Mutual Story has been recognised as a best practice case study by Barrett Values Centre and the Financial Reporting Council. The success of this work was underpinned by the inclusive dialogue-based approach that empowered every employee to own and shape their culture and ultimately inspired Faiza to become a trainer.
Much of her recent work involves supporting small to medium sized entrepreneurial organisations to embed a strong and cohesive culture that is aligned with their strategy and long-term vision. With her deep training in Gestalt therapy, group dynamics and psychology, Faiza supports leaders to think systemically and holistically, in order to work faster through difficult operational, political and cultural challenges. She is regularly invited to support teams understand how to manage their unique cultural dynamics and increase their effectiveness.
Faiza’s top three values are Family, Creativity, and Freedom. She is a proud mum of three, and in her spare time works as a therapist at a London based charity supporting marginalized women.
