“As a strategic advisor, Hemda presents an organized mind with an exceptional ability to process large amounts of data, and to conceptualize challenges and opportunities. She led the effort to develop a strategic plan for the Medicine Department, including leadership training and coaching for division chiefs. Her supportive and empathetic, yet rigorous approach, earned her the trust and respect of the team. Simultaneously, her inquisitive mind led her to embrace the challenge of understanding the barriers to and promoters of organizational effectiveness, and to formulate and test hypotheses about possible solutions. She presented innovative ideas that promoted a team-based approach; this, in turn, improved our overall organizational structure, as well as the performance of specific programs. She energized the entire Department, and her impact was simply transformative.”

“My counseling sessions with Hemda still stand out as the some of the most catalytic experiences of my professional life. Her remarkable ability to see beneath my concerns and uncover my skills, strengths and personal vision enabled me to set a professional journey that I follow to this day. Apart from her dedication, Hemda possesses certain qualities that make her an amazing colleague, friend, and incredible resource for learning and change. She has a remarkable ability to remain present and focused in a group dialogue, such that new possibilities arise almost naturally in the thread of conversations. I referred Hemda’s coaching to over 20 clients. In every case, their feedback echoed my experience of her rare talent as a professional coach, someone who awakens a client’s higher calling, often guiding them to serve themselves and society in ways than they never imagined possible.”
