Welcome to Episode 117 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with leadership educator and executive coach Sahar Habib who developed what she calls “bite-sized coaching.” Our discussion today explores Sahar’s belief that often people just need a quick boost of confidence or knowledge that can come from an ad hoc conversation with the right coach or mentor. She provides that through her company, Coach Wilson, which offers an online learning platform to leaders and aspiring leaders. We also explore the importance for organizations to have a balance between a “people focus” and a “business focus.” Our topic is especially timely today as we face the need for remote leadership as well as other challenges the pandemic has created.

So if you want to know:

  • How bite-sized coaching and long-term training programs can go hand in hand
  • How a support system for your leadership team can transition experts into leaders
  • About the value of combining the strengths of an old-school leader and a millennial leader
  • What our future leaders will look like
  • The biggest mistake organizations can make — and how the pandemic has served as a wake-up call for all of us


About Sahar Habib

Sahar Habib left school at the age of 16 to run her own styling studio where she subcontracted hair stylists, make-up artists and photographers for different projects. After four years, she moved on, trying different industries and roles, until she found her true passion — leadership. Sahar founded Coach Wilson, an online solution platform for leaders, aspiring leaders and entrepreneurs, named for her manager who was always ready with the support she needed to face immediate challenges. Her goal is to replicate the five- or ten-minute conversations with her manager that she found so helpful. Coach Wilson does this through bite-sized coaching videos and short blogs as well as long-term solutions through training programs/webinars. Sahar can be found at www.coach-wilson.com and on Instagram.
