What We Do
“Sonya, the founder of EFLA, is a pioneer in Executive and Leadership coaching, by being one of the first to bring this discipline to the Middle East. I have had the pleasure of working with her at the Center for Executive Coaching. She brings wisdom, empathy and excellent insights to her coaching, and she would be an asset to anyone seeking to improve their power base, influence, ability to engage and mobilize a team, as well as communicate more effectively. I highly recommend her work.”
Director of the Center for Executive Coaching and Institute for Business Growth (USA)
“The trainer was very dedicated; her professionalism has helped many to level up their image. Her expertise and skills have become critical elements required for all types of businesses. What’s attractive and different about EFLA is that their trainers enjoy sincerity in delivering the wealth of information to individuals and professionals.”
Managing Partner – Massaya Wines
“Through the trainer’s ability to communicate well, her advanced interpersonal skills and her level of commitment, she was successful in making a noticeable positive difference to the staff’s communication practices following the completion of the training. We are looking forward to working with EFLA again on more workshops. It is a pleasure working with such professional and conscientious people.”
Head of Training & Development – Fransabank
“Great! Actually, it was not just a fun way to learn but with all the practical exercises, it made it easier to grasp new information and be able to practise what we learnt in a very friendly and motivating way. The speaker was very effective in running the training program because she acted more as an adviser and coach rather than a lecturer. She triggered the best qualities in each one of us and allowed us to express our own concerns and ideas. I can honestly say that undertaking this program has given me more confidence to deal with most situations at the office and a more professional attitude to go with it.”
