Chemistry of the human brain

Mark Summerfield Mediator & Solicitor

Although I am an experienced mediator I am always looking to learn new ways to approach a mediation and to understand the mindset of those attending a mediation. Tasneem’s course on ‘navigating emotional disputes’ offered great insight into the chemistry of the human brain and how people respond to different ways and styles of communication. I have already implemented some of the strategies I learned and look forward to building on the foundations that were carefully set throughout the 6 hour course which I highly recommend.

Manage pressure

Aman Raphael Training Manager

I have had the pleasure to work with Tasneem, and find her to be a true professional organizational coach. Driving the positivity, providing the helping hand all the time, makes us know the organizational fit, trained us to understand the emotional intelligence. It is during this era of COVID-19 when I realised the importance of her training and coaching, as the Leading Human Resources person in our Group, managing the total change of work setting was not that easy task within a very short period of time but for the knowledge and skills from Tasneem helps to simplify my task and manage the pressure ( from both sides, employer and employees) accepting the changes.

Tasneem positively is still coaching me on improving the work setting during this COVID-19 era.

Transformational process

Miguel Moreira Rato CEO

Tasneem started to be my coach at a very important time in my career. She pushed my thinking from the get go, asking the right questions, guiding me and supporting me through a process of setting the right vision for my company. She provided me with a deeper level of learning, combining emotional intelligence skills with business decisions, all by allowing me to embrace vulnerability and to build personal awareness. I strongly feel that Tasneem was (and is) the right coach to accompany me through this transformational process that I am leading in my company.

Tasneem opened my mind

Diana Bishop The Success Story Program and Creator of the Women of Global Interest Interview Series, Author of Living UP to a Legend

During this global crisis and beyond, Tasneem is the coach we all need to move forward in this new reality!

I have run a successful communications company for the last 18 years but realized that I needed to recalibrate where I am in my business and my life at this crucial time. Tasneem opened my mind and unblocked me in areas that were holding me back. I could not have seen or processed this without her coaching and emotional intelligence tools. As a result, I am back on track and feeling excited about my next steps.

Sharing experiences and techniques were so creative and imaginative

Yonca Fatma Yücel Lecturer

I would like to present to “Masterclass on Mediators’ Embodying Emotional Intelligence, Conversational Intelligence (CIQ) and Neuroscience” given by Mrs. Tasneem Virani to all concerns. In order to going forward on the way to be good mediator, we should dominate relationship about the brain and emotional intelligence, types of unconscious bias, techniques for how to build to trust between parties to use correct language and right questions. During on her master class, this time our cameras focused to inside travelling and tested our own self- awareness and self -confidence easily for reinforcing our capacity above mentioned matters. Her sharing experiences and techniques were so creative and imaginative. She was real master conductor to use correct language and right questions towards the disputant parties. Bear the most important point in our mind, we learned how to listen sayings of parties from heart for being able to govern verbal and non-verbal communications successfully during the mediation.

Tasneem’s webinars were amazing.  It was like having your third eye opened, an awakening and awareness of what one is capable of doing with her guidance.  The link and exercises were really helpful in leading one to self awareness and the webinars were engaging.  It was like the opening of your thoughts and dreams, making “I wish” into a positive affirmation of how “I am determined”.  I now feel capable of following my dreams and seeing them through to fruition.

Emotional Intelligence

Very recently we have started using the Emotional Intelligence testing. This is particularly useful because senior staff within the organisation are managing large numbers of staff. Furthermore the constant changes within the regulatory bodies demand varying requirements of providers like us. Therefore, we need managers who are reflective and manage their emotions in a highly stressful environment.
