I had the pleasure of working with Reem for over 2 years. I was one of 50+ staff under Reem’s leadership and I can honestly say that it was one the most beneficial and rewarding experiences in my career.
Reem’s ability to adjust her leadership and communication style to suit any scenario was amazing to watch. I was truly inspired by working within Reem’s team. I felt engaged, empowered, energised and most of all, I felt like what I was doing and my overall contribution was helping to achieve our team goals.
To this day, I have not seen a more influential and thought-provoking leader. Reem always knew how to slow down, to take the time to listen and understand who you are and what your challenges and aspirations are as an individual. She offered a friendly ear, an open mind and always provided strategies and vision to inspire you to think more holistically, yet with a channeled focus.
The most admirable thing about Reem is that she empowers people to be successful. She allows you the space that you need to grow with practical guidance and simples plans to achieve your desired outcomes one step at a time. The best part about her mentoring is that I could really see how much she was invested in the personal growth of her team members, this was also felt and acknowledged by the entire team.
Thanks to Reem, I now know what the difference is between a manager and a leader. I will be forever thankful for having the opportunity to be mentored and led by such an amazing woman. Reem opened up my potential, she believed in me and set me on a professional and personal trajectory that will influence and shape the rest of my life.
