In some companies you can feel the momentum building. People are engaged. They are approaching their work with energy, enthusiasm and resilience. If you are lucky to end up in such a company, being part of the organisation becomes part of your own identity…
In other companies, it feels impossible to get everyone pulling in the same direction. People lose sight of the company’s purpose. Politics creep in. They start looking out only for themselves. Or elsewhere – for new opportunities.
We started Visionary Voices to help entrepreneurs and founders build better workplaces with stronger cultures – from the start. Where employees know they’re listened to, managers learn from their own decisions and develop as leaders, and entire organisations see a step-change in what they can achieve.
And the key to building great, scalable and sustainable companies is in transforming and strengthening your leadership.
Headquartered in Paris, France, Visionary Voices has helped dozens of entrepreneurs, executive leaders and managers become inspiring, confident and efficient leaders and get to their next level and set goals faster.

“Not only the content of Nadira’s workshop was highly appreciated but the tips and exercises she choose were very useful too. Moreover, Nadira has a great energy and her enthusiasm is contagious! She has a real ability to engage the audience and her dynamic way to run this event was quite appreciated by the 60 demanding manager participants. Finally, it was easy and pleasant to organize training with Visionary Voices and I would be very happy to do it again next year!”
“J’ai beaucoup apprécié de travailler avec Nadira sur mes objectifs professionnels et personnels. Elle m’a aidé à comprendre comment mon processus de pensée et mes croyances pouvaient ralentir ma progression, et elle m’a aidé à élaborer des stratégies pour progresser vers mes objectifs avec une sensibilisation accrue. Elle a un sens de l’écoute développé et m’a encouragé à développer une multitude de perspectives sur les événements de ma vie quotidienne. Les séances étaient ciblées et concrètes avec des objectifs clairs pour chaque semaine. Nadira est un coach de talent qui sait partager ses dons avec ses clients et qui leur donne les moyens d’aller de l’avant.”
“Nadira is a talented, intuitive, gentle and direct coach who will challenge you to achieve your potential. She will help you set concrete and measurable goals and will follow up to help with progress and accountability. Nadira is sensitive to non-verbal cues and is direct in asking permission to offer her observations. She is a true partner on your journey of discovery and success. Her fluency in several languages positions her well for multicultural engagements.”
“Too many leadership coaches and consultants are eager to tell you what to do to try to prove how smart they are. That’s not Nadira. She possesses a rare combination of skills – coach, cheerleader, communication & emotional intelligence expert – and masterfully transitions between those roles to guide you where you need to go professionally and personally. And she does it with warmth, humour and just the right amount of nudging and tough love when required to keep you on track to achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself and your team.”
As women leaders, we have few if any opportunities to go deep in a supported, safe, confidential environment. Hiring Nadira as my coach was a fantastic investment into myself as a leader. Not only did she help me uncover my blind spots as well as my strengths, working with Nadira gave me the tools and the space to reflect deeply on what I wanted to change in the company’s culture, as well as in my career and vision. Our deep coaching conversations helped me navigate with success some pivotal moments of the company’s growth trajectory. If you’re ready for true transformation, if you’re ready to face the shadows that limit you and embrace your greatest strengths, Nadira is the coach for you.
I had the opportunity to attend Nadira’s workshop on leadership. Her talk was excellent, captivating and a very great learning for the audience. She is, no doubt, a great advisor when it comes to leadership skills’ development.
