The workplace is constantly changing. I talk about the strategies that you need to navigate the workplace landscape.
Why Self-Awareness Needs to be Your Top Priority
We’ve seen people who behave in ways that make us cringe. The ability to have a true read on your own character, emotions, and desires are essential at work. I discuss ways to be more self-aware and how to gain insights about our blind spots.
How to Build Your Political Sensitivity Muscle
Engaging with others at work is inevitable and you’ll likely be involved in office politics. I explain what you can do to be politically astute and navigate the workplace waters with ease.
How to Get Rid of the ‘Comparison-Syndrome’
We usually long to fit in and are paralyzed by fears to step off the road and carve our own path. I discuss how you can tap into your inner voice so that you can listen and act according to your own intentions rather than what others may be thinking about you.
Itching for a Promotion? How to Get There and What to Expect.
Humans are competitive and usually aspire for something more. Sometimes promotions are not what we expect. I describe some of the challenges new managers face and some strategies to prepare for the transition.
"The [conflict management] session was a big hit and the coaches thought it was a great piece of work! CONGRATS! However, I am not surprised :) Great work Ami - I have enjoyed working with you and look forward to more."
- Mark S., Professor and Coordinator, Social Innovator and Entrepreneur (event organizer)
“What a night! An amazing delivery of a fun and engaging session. You are a master of your craft. You are such a good speaker - good content, interactive, and great time control. The old school flip chart worked wonders when the ancient projector caved in!”
- Hangmei, Sales Manager, Toronto (event host)
"Thank you, Ami, for being our guest speaker in the Enhancing Economic Opportunities for Older Workers job-search workshop series. You really nailed it. ‘How to Focus on You’ was the right blend of: we know you’re doing 'this' and here’s how to help yourself. During a job-search, it’s too easy to compare yourself to other employed people or to think that other unemployed people are getting more interviews than you are. The group exercises and moments of self-reflection during this session were valuable steps towards realizing that your own journey is the important one, and you explained in a very relatable, encouraging manner how to place your attention and value on yourself. It’s an absolute pleasure working with you.”
- Meg M., Educational Program Associate, Toronto (event host)

"Ami taught me to look inside myself as a means of facilitating my future interactions with others. She helped me to grow exponentially and always made time to listen attentively and provide eloquent feedback."
- Kevin D., Project Manager and Energy Innovation Entrepreneur, Toronto
“Ami is a very experienced speaker in career coaching. I coordinated a mentorship program helping international trained professionals with employment support and invited her to deliver a workshop on Building a Positive Relationship at Work to my clients. Ami provided practical tips on building positive relationships with employers and mentors. We find it essential to have an expert, like Ami, to deliver this content so our clients will be equipped with quality knowledge for their future career success. The material was well prepared, and she’s very well spoken. I highly recommend her for future workshops!”
- Larissa, L., Program Coordinator (event host)
"Ami is a great educator, especially speaking about human development. I had the opportunity to learn about human resources from a coaching perspective, which specifically brought me more confidence while working in groups."
- Franklin L., Sr., Human Resources Manager, Toronto
"Ami was always very approachable and she made sure each of us always had a chance to speak and express ourselves. I feel like the sessions helped me become more self-aware of my actions and my leadership skills as a project manager. One of the biggest challenges I had was receiving feedback without feeling like a failure. Ami provided me with tools and techniques to combat that fear of feedback and how to turn the negatives into an opportunity to improve myself. I highly recommend Ami to anyone who is looking to improve themselves and become more aware of their strengths and skills."
- Tanya M., Project Coordinator, Toronto
"Ami was a guest speaker in the Career Seminar Series when I was a Humber College student in the Human Resources Management Program. She provided valuable insight from her own HR journey through labour relations, organizational development and change management. She is an engaging communicator who listens carefully to her audience's questions and provides pertinent career advice. Ami taught me how to recognize transferrable skills from one industry to another, and from one aspect of HR to another."
- Meg M., Human Resources Professional, Toronto
"Ami was very approachable and understanding, her passion for her work was evident in the sessions as demonstrated by her engagement with everyone. Ami’s communication and facilitation style were excellent, she used a mixture of participation group exercises and discussions to introduce new material and concepts, which was great as it promoted team building and healthy intelligent conversations amongst us. Her passion and commitment had a positive impact on me personally, I learned to be more confident in myself first and foremost along with many other valuable skills. However, one thing that really had an impact on me and was my greatest learning was the self-development exercises which allowed me to get a truly better understanding and sense of myself. This has continued to be a positive impact on me personally and professionally and I have Ami to thank for that."
- Rishi L., Project Coordinator, Toronto
