“Shabbir’s workshop on emotional intelligence challenged students from various healthcare disciplines to increase their self-awareness.  He provided practical thinking tools in order for us to explore outside of the box into the unknown.  My greatest takeaway is, this area of the unknown holds a lot of possibilities and solutions that can expand our emotional and intellectual awareness and experiences, and...

I realized that...

Shabbir’s presentations are always engaging, and you will leave his presentations with nuggets that are applicable to your life and business. Shabbir's presentations are very interactive and full of fun activity no matter how big the audience is. Shabbir gave three presentations at our venue and I am looking forward to having him come back for more.

Great presentation by Shabbir! The intro exercise was fun & a wonderful way to be reminded to think "outside the box" as Dave said. One too many times I find myself only looking at the "box" rather than pulling myself back and looking at the bigger picture.

I found to my surprise that thinking about the idea of fear related to something that seemed very far removed from that possibility brought a whole new way to see an issue I have. Good succinct job in presenting this. Great that we got to do an relevant activity.

I did notice the interactive way Shabbir engaged the audience made a lot of your material even more tangible. The videos and images were also very effective at clarifying the concepts.

I've had the unique pleasure of knowing Shabbir for 12 years. As Managing Principal of AWCS, I had the rewarding opportunity to interact with him in all facets of program design and training development. Above all, I'm impressed with Shabbir’s ability to cultivate and build a team atmosphere through collaboration, emotional affinity, and rapport building. As a creative outdoor experiential educator, and result-driven trainer, Shabbir would be a superb asset for any position where his experiential, organizational and facilitation skills are required.

The workshop allowed us, the students, to interact and use our real life situations in each competency that we were studying. I have already started implementing some of the processes covered in class and have found that I am experiencing less anxiety in moments where I know previously I would have been flustered. This class is not only useful for business but can be applied to many situations in everyday life.

Shabbir does an extraordinary job presenting the theories of Emotional Intelligence and helping the participants understand how to translate them to the real world, as well as motivating them to take action. I left the Emotional Intelligence workshop feeling inspired, motivated, and leaping toward change. By reflecting on how you can impact climate, you become empowered to know that we are all change agents and everything starts with us.

Shabbir did a great job of presenting seemingly abstract concepts in a clear and tangible way. The workshop was engaging, informative, and offered a great blend of theoretical knowledge and practical activities. Not only was it interesting, but the concepts can immediately be applied to your everyday life.

A student who participated in Shabbir’s emotional intelligence classes was in my office (principal’s) due to a conflict with another student. This particular student came to our school with extreme anger issues which he usually resolved by fighting anyone who crossed him. On this particular day, I was concerned he would take care of his problem with the other student with anger and physical aggression toward the other student. However, as we talked, he told me that he was using the techniques he learned from Shabbir and named the emotion he was feeling and was dealing with and would not act out in aggression toward the other student. This student told me that the classes with Shabbir were his best experiences of the year in school for him. I noticed a remarkable difference in this student at the end of the school year from when he joined us in his ability to deal with issues in a manner that did not involve physical violence upon others. He developed an understanding of others he did not have before and found new ways to solve his issues with others. I plan to expand the class so more students will be able to benefit from Shabbir’s work. – Carol Adams, Principal. New Leaf/Briones Schools

Recently my staff and I participated in a condensed Emotional Intelligence workshop with Shabbir Latif. I can say without question that it was one of the most powerful trainings my staff and I have partaken in a long time. I concluded the training effective and enlightening. For me, the training was extremely powerful. I was feeling stuck and frustrated about certain situations in my life, both professionally and personally. After the session I was inspired and hopeful about my future and the situations that were affecting me. I had an insight that if I understood and clarified “What” I wanted, the “How” would follow succinctly. This seems easy to understand in concept, but Shabbir presented it in a way that made it relevant and profound for me personally. I no longer have to stress out about minutiae and can focus on what I really want. I highly recommend this training for teambuilding, professional and personal enlightenment and assistance in expanding ones horizons. Thank you Shabbir!

I learned that basically I feel safe with Shabbir during this short time. For me to discuss my weight issues to Shabbir, let alone a man. I am proud of feeling comfortable enough to share as I think this will help me address this resistance cycle.

Thank you Shabbir for being such a good listener. I learned somethings about myself that I was not aware of, or maybe I was, but you helped see them in a different light. I appreciate your understanding and your patience.
