I am passionate about helping people reach their full potential through creating actionable goals that lead to success.
"We started working with Cocatalyze a few years ago and it has been a great experience. Shadi has helped me so much in the area of human resources and I'm 100% better at managing my staff and dealing with conflict than I was when we started. Owning your own business can be a hard and lonely road and having someone to talk through goals and strategies with is very valuable. I highly recommend the services of Cocatalyze to anyone who feels like they need to give their business (or career) a boost forward."

CEO Trillium Bookkeeping
"Working with Shadi was a great eye opener for me even after decades of working and a career in multiple industries, companies, locations. He was curious to understand where I was at the start; be it a mental state or in terms of skills set and experience and worked with me to identify the root cause and solutions. I liked the mixed approach of both the psychological assessment as well as analytical part of the process as we also used an assessment tool to verify the outcomes. This collaboration led to a successful change in my career and how I look at career management at all. Thank you Shadi for your support!"

"Shadi is a one-of-kind thought leader who has insight to almost any aspect of business or life and has had great exposure to business and cause and effect chains. His biggest quality is his high ethics and unprecedented clarity of coming up with ideas. It was a great pleasure to have him as a coach, a colleague and as a friend. I definitely recommend him as a true contributor to the turnaround of any organization."

For Talent Solutions:
"Very interesting indeed…so much detailed and taking into consideration all the various aspects and how candidates react to a range of different situations. A great supporting tool indeed for HR to use, which can be a huge benefit to all."

For @Me For Students:
"Overall I found the experience and info extremely beneficial. As a young and new student, I find that being self aware about my strengths and weaknesses will only help me take action toward improving myself. What I like the most is that I now have a very personal and true elevator pitch that I can use it to brand myself. I loved learning this about myself early in life; I feel it will help me choose a perfect future job. I wish our sessions were an hour and a half or two hours! I liked when we did activities and when we filled in the worksheets in relation to our reports."
Student / Fanshawe College
"Working with Shadi was an extremely rewarding and fun experience. He was patient when I needed that and direct when I needed that too. With very few coaching sessions, he helped bring clarity to my thinking. His coaching style and questions really dig beyond the obvious and helped me to be more authentic and honest with myself. Moreover, he uses techniques and tools that helped me to laser focus on my key assets and capitalize on them. This truly helped me to be more aware of my true values and align my career and growth in my business with my passion. Most importantly Sahdi’s sense of humor made our calls always fun!
