How does your life shape your coaching?

As an Emirati woman who grew up in the 80s and 90s, Rawabi Al-Nuaimi lived a life where men and women outside of her immediate family did not mix. The first time she interacted with men outside of her family was during her first job, at age 21. Little did Rawabi know, that 20 years later, she would be coaching pilots—primarily men.

Through coaching, Rawabi came to understand how her culture and upbringing shaped the person she is, and how she shows up as a coach.

Rawabi says: ‘I faced uncomfortable moments that challenged me to the core. They made me discover more about the coach that I am—and the coach I want to be. I’m lucky to work with pilots from all corners of the world, and to find a way to use the beauty of my culture in service of my clients.’
