I was advised by a friend to schedule a coaching session prior to my interview to get prepared. As I always I was focusing on studying the content of my interview rather than on preparing myself mentally. However, as Ashraf reminded me of it during the coaching session, the impression we make during an interview is mostly based on the energy we diffuse, on the way we move and talk and on the intensity of our motivation. In only one hour, Ashraf made me practice talking about non-technical topics to let me express my enthusiasm, to show my confidence and to develop my assertiveness. I know for sure that it had a major impact on my mindset going into the interview. Thanks to this powerful coaching session, I kept fighting during this extremely challenging interview... And got the job offer months later!
Mr. Marzzoka helped me tremendously in finding my inner strength and the courage to conquer whatever stands in my way. He is no wizard so there is no flicking with the magic stick 1,2,3 and away are your problems. But he is excellent in guiding you through the dark and makes you find the door to your personal fulfillment or whatever goal you aspire to reach or set for yourself. Now keep in mind though he guides you and shows you the door, but it's on you to have the courage and the will to go through the door. Taking action is your part, my friend.
I met Ashraf on my way to Amsterdam and short after we talk a while I realized that it was a perfect timing to meet him. As an Argentinean engineer living and working in Germany I am struggling to figure out what my next steps are. There are a lot of options, places, activities and working fields to choose from. Having my first coaching session with Ashraf on that very same day helped me a lot. He asked the right questions that helped me organize my thinking and identify priorities. He motivated me to stop procrastinating and go into action.
I am working in an International Organisation and met Ashraf by chance about a year ago.
At that time, I was running for a competitive job campaign and decided to give it a chance: 10 Weeks in advance, we have had weekly coaching sessions and then every 2 Days before the interview. I succeeded against all odds and Ashraf played more than a part.
Ashraf has this special gift that enables him to share with me the justness of his judgement and his inner confidence.
My coaching experience with Ashraf has enabled me to discover may passion and my career in life. When we first met in 2009, I felt my career life was in disarray and I had no idea what direction I was going in. I needed to take action, but felt too overwhelmed to figure out where to start. Through various conversations and exercises, Ashraf helped me find my own path. I now enjoy a great career! I would recommend Ashraf to anyone who is committed to personal development and advancing their careers.
Working in the stock market has made me lonely and not able to figure out a pattern for my profession. I met Ashraf as I was entering our building and instantly felt that he can help me so we set up a complimentary session and we went further into a coaching process. He explained to me that he couldn’t help me in how to do well in stock market but was focused enough to find a fine line to link me with my heart “ intuition” as this was something I was not relying on much to make decisions. Thanks for Ashraf and for coaching as now I have created a system which is based on logic and intuition in regards buying or selling stocks. It was a wonderful experience !!!
Ashraf has helped me immeasurably to put my life back together. I wish I had such guidance when I was much younger. Sometimes we just need a little help along the way, and my life has been dedicated to helping others, never realizing that I needed it for myself at times.
