About Nadia-Ayasha Mason
Being of service to others has consistently been a personal mantra and passion for Nadia Ayasha Mason. A core skill is her ability to get people and teams to listen and give attention to one another as part of relationship development, using The Ten Components of A Thinking Environment®. Her desire for equality and respect for all was influenced by her two strong grandmothers whilst being raised during the Apartheid era of South Africa.
This led to the establishment of Nadia Mason Personnel, an Employment Equity focused Recruitment Consultancy. After 20 years in Recruitment Management, Executive Search, Talent Acquisition and Talent Management where she led teams of 30 – 150 staff on numerous projects, Nadia Ayasha transitioned into the field of People Development and Management Consulting: Business – Executive Coaching; Strategic Facilitation; Leadership, Management and Organisational Development.
I have had the pleasure and privilege of attending several individual and team coaching sessions with Nadia Mason, and it is unlike anything I have experienced before.
Nadia has a very unique, holistic and bespoke way to enable individuals to see themselves the way the rest of the world sees them – their strengths and their weaknesses. She exposes the best in people, and many discover their true selves for the first time through her gentle but honest guidance. It is amazing and heart-warming to see them blossom and with Nadia’s guidance, improve or even overcome their shortcomings to become who they are really meant to be.
Nadia’s many years of experience as a recruiter, coach and facilitator makes her an exceptional ‘team builder’. It doesn’t take a long time for her to instill a culture of honesty, respect and trust in a team of people, even when they have not worked together previously. They walk into a
session as colleagues and walk out as lasting allies and true partners. There is no one else like Nadia – we will forever be in her debt for her pivotal role in elevating a good team with great individuals to world-class level.
Nadia has immense knowledge in the field of coaching and also has experience in the field. She would note every improvement l have made from the previous sessions and her comments were always positive and encouraging. She would ask if there is anything l would like to talk about or anything l need assistance with. This would assist me in offloading most of the challenging aspects of my work and also talking about exciting projects l will be working on at that time. She will then carefully choose probing questions to guide me in every aspect of the challenges and commend me for the great work l am doing in the business. l believe this made me a stronger person in this position and also made me realise that l can do better in any given environment.
Nadia follows a very specific coaching model which is focused on matching her mentees’ intentions and his/her actions and guiding them through transformation and change. I confidently recommend Nadia’s services both as Business Coach, as Facilitator and related leadership programs. The quality of her services, business experience, HR knowledge and attention to detail is just outstanding.
