About Refiya (refeeya/ye)

After two decades of practising my profession within sectors as diverse as the British Foreign Office, Energy, IT, Education, Manufacturing, Charity and the local government.  I am now providing consulting services for businesses.   I am poised to assist with the enormous challenges of a post-pandemic, post-Brexit environment.

Both events have changed how we do business – whether it be remote working conditions, the reset of services/products, re-structuring, or talent and performance management.

In my experience change is always traumatic. And never more so than when dynamic and uncertain global conditions prevail.

It’s easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day grind of work and lose sight of your long-term goals. A performance coach can help you stay motivated by setting achievable goals and helping you create a plan to reach them.  This is done by identifying how you would like to be supported and setting guidelines as well as an agreement between both parties on how to proceed together.

Performance management is a process of setting goals and expectations for employees, monitoring progress and providing feedback. Ultimately, the goal of performance management is to help employees improve their performance and reach their potential and help managers identify challenges and obstacles that they could problem solve together with the individual staff members.

Organizations invest in talent management because they understand the importance of having a pipeline of leaders who can take on new challenges and responsibilities. Developing talent internally can also help to create a more engaged and loyal workforce.

Organisational change is always warranted in order to help an organisation survive and grow in the ever-changing landscape of the exchange of services and goods markets. By definition, organisational change refers to the alteration of a company’s structure, operations, processes, or personnel in response to internal or external pressures.

When both the organisation and employees are happy and satisfied, it can lead to an extremely profitable company.

A happier workforce takes fewer sick days, has lower turnover rates and is less likely to leave the company. Engaged employees are also more creative and innovative, which can lead to new ideas and improvements for the organisation.
