A big “THANK YOU” to Dr. Haris and his wonderful team. It is hard to find the words to describe how enjoyable and life-changing the experience was training with you.

I had not anticipated that learning to become a coach would entail also developing myself. This unexpected benefit has certainly opened my eyes and changed the way I look at the world. I am still very much “work in progress”, and you have provided excellent course material and tools for me to keep changing for the better and move forward confidently as a coach. I also really appreciate the time you spent outlining the practicalities of how to get started as a coach. In a nutshell, I firmly believe that if you want to train with one of the most experienced, certified, and powerful coaches on the planet, then CTA and Dr. Haris are a great choice to minimize your risk and maximize your chances of success as a coach. Dr. Haris creates a positive feeling of partnership to bring out the best in you. For me, this training course also created several unexpected and wonderful “Agh Hah” moments, which positively changed my view of various live real-life situations and empowered me with vital skills and techniques to be a successful coach. This course is not just about getting certified but about helping you to reach your full potential and there is plenty of support from Haris and the team and the other coaches you meet.

My journey with CTA has been very successful. I was looking for 2 days refresh course to go back to coaching business and get ICF accreditation but ended up attending the full 10 days program to become SCPC and more!

All that because of the course instructor Dr. Haris. Very well experienced mentor; the personality and energy I felt the first time I spoke to him was all that I needed to join his course. His method and style in explaining ideas and concepts are outstanding. On top of that, he is very patient and trustful. The program delivered much more than what I expected and has made me overall more confident. After the training, I still enjoy being a CTA family member and attend a weekly structured mentoring program to achieve ICF accreditation with no extra charges. I highly recommend this program for those seeking personal improvements in their own lives and for those who want to take it as a career to help others through coaching. I won’t be able to personally thank enough Dr. Haris, his team, and my peers for all that this course has meant to me, but I hope I will be able to give to others at least a bit of what I received. Thanks for facilitating this opportunity for me to self-reflect and to learn how to establish and grow my coaching business.

Whether it is about the inquiry or running the sessions, CTA has the best support team. They are both efficient and knowledgeable about how everything works.
Read more

It’s indeed helpful to have such support throughout the session for all of us. Talking about sessions, one of the best sessions by Haris. Not even once there was presentations or projectors used. The majority of learning was through exercises and coaching sessions themselves, which is more beneficial for the students. The passion of Haris towards coaching is commendable, his vast experience is the reason for such successful programs. Although I joined the course more to explore, Haris has defiantly left a strong impression for me to seriously consider this has something I would pursue.

Haris and CTA changed my life. I have never been so sure of what I wanted to do with my life. After years of being in a boring, mundane corporate role, stumbling upon CTA was life-altering.

If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have discovered my passion for Coaching. Getting trained as a coach was the best decision in my life. CTA is the best in Dubai, and this I say, after having considered so many other options. CTA has a very passionate and compassionate team that makes you feel like a family. I landed my first client while I was training, and I felt very confident to take her on board. The credit goes to Haris and CTA’s ICF approved curriculum, the way classes are conducted, and of course, how comfortable and confident they make you feel. Thank you for helping me find the purpose of my life. All the best, CTA and Haris!

We don’t have to fit ourselves somewhere or to someone, but it’s clear for me as well that when we can find a place where we can fit in, extraordinary things happen in every area of our lives.

After putting an extra effort on asking my friend (Google) as to where I can find the right place for me to learn, broaden, and explore new things, both professionally and personally, a place where can I find the BEST academy for me to grow and inspire as a COACH. A place run by GREAT people whom I can lean till I reach my ideal self, and people who will guide me till I reach the best version of myself. ALL of these, I found in CTA ACADEMY, I’m blessed…Again, I’m not getting tired of saying that I am so grateful to CTA and those people behind this academy. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, well-done guys. It was life-changing, and you guys impacted me in so many special ways. Many people are searching for a perfect academy like me. One thing for sure, they will found out that CTA is the BEST and PERFECT academy for them…

Words might not be enough to explain my experience with Dr. Haris in the CTA coach transformation program. Honestly, I had a brief coaching program earlier with an institute but never understood what it really meant.
Read more

It’s like googling coaching vs mentoring every time!!! But with Dr. Haris, I’ve lived it, experienced it, fully got connected and enlightened about how every human got solutions within themselves, yet they need a guider/coach, or I don’t mind saying a savior to help them understand what deeply they need to know, how to get it out and realize it by themselves.

Madina

It has genuinely transformed me and the way I think. I have learned a great deal and established a solid foundation for success in my life. The course is very structured and well-presented, and the content is remarkable. The coaches are incredibly inspirational and motivational. Dr. Haris is truly amazing- his state of being, zero judgment of others, deep understanding of human nature, passion – absolutely priceless! I was also amazingly surprised by the warmth and efficiency of the administration and faculty members. Everybody in the team is so helpful, committed, and welcoming.

Coach Transformation Academy – CTA is one of the finest coaching schools. They work on the student’s behavior building as a coach rather than just imparting the training, and that makes them unique.
Read more

Their Business Build Up module during the course is so amazing and exceptional that it brings immense confidence among students as to how to set up their own coaching business. Their content is rich and very advanced, and the experiential methods of training used by Haris make the whole program amazingly engaging. The whole team of CTA is greatly supportive throughout the program. I made the right choice choosing them as my learning partner and highly recommend CTA to everyone willing to dive into learning coaching and set up its business.

The lead Coach Haris is an insightful researcher, and a dedicated coach partnering individual for corporate transformation and development. The regular classes are filled with the active learning experience, and online sessions of mentoring and learning add value to the learning journey. The international credentials of coaching from ICF, EMCC, SHRM, and BCC can be achieved through guided learning and certification process that includes assessment and actual coaching hours being evaluated. I have been through the journey, and it’s a path worth taking.

Sangeeta Manglani

I was so emotional this afternoon that I may not have expressed what I truly feel. I have just put my thoughts into words.
Read more

A journey that started with a lot of apprehensions – slowly treading on it started to bloom me like a bud on a plant, not realizing when the first petal opened. Was it the sunshine or the water or the soil that supported it? Accepting and opening without inhibitions of what’s supporting the growth, I started to experience beauty in me and all around. So many buds of different colors blooming besides, each one accepting the sunshine, water, and soil from a source that kept enriching and fulfilling us to see the beauty that we have within and around us. A journey from apprehensions is now a journey that is a part of our very being.
Haris, this is what you have truly done.

Rohin Nambiar

Brilliant Program. I have attended the Senior Certified Professional Coach Program in Nov/Dec 2019. Coach Haris has created a curriculum that is different, engaging, and informative. Read more

The course is combined with a lot of activities that engage us and creates a feeling of togetherness while providing an opportunity to do real coaching sessions as part of the program. The team at CTA is very flexible and really helpful. I would recommend CTA to you! Cheers

I came back home with a wealth of knowledge. I must thank Dr. Haris and his lovely team, and nonetheless, the fabulous group I met and made connections with. The workshop granted me this gift of new friends and family. Thank you again for this.

She followed a very unique approach of portraying the coaching competencies with a logic to remember.

Huzaifa Shabbir Hussain

At times, we don’t know things that happen in life are for a reason, and the same thing happened with me when I got in touch with Coach Samina Karimi. Read more

While meeting her for the first time, discussing my future career aspects, and knowing more about CTA, she introduced me to the diploma course, and I got convinced. I immediately signed up for the two days Diploma Training Program. That was a decision I will never ever regret in my life. The two-day program was phenomenal. It was an amazing workshop. Having the best part of it was that it was ppt less and a discussion-based 2-day program. The session was full of energy with intense discussions, case scenarios, and group activities. After the end of the 2 days, I’m able to give the answer to “who am I”, “what I know”, and how can I capitalize on both these terms. I have started listening to my heart more, as I feel at times that is something that brings transformation in your life. I think it was one of the most amazing experiences. I have stopped being judgmental about stuff and started applying that knowledge while dealing with people now in my professional life. Guys, if you are passionate about becoming a coach and excited in bringing in change in the life of the people, CTA is the best platform to be with!! Cheers!

Ch Shani Kamboh

I am so grateful to be a part of 2 days diploma held in Karachi. I want to give a special thanks to coach Samina Karimi.⁩ When I thought I couldn’t reach my goals, your 2 days workshop give me new energy, great person with a great course in a great institute.Read more

For me, it’s the first step to go with, really looking forward to the next 6 days or 10 days course offered by CTA. And recommend going with the 6-day program.

Nina Werner

I got much more than what I bargained for! The CTA family is very professional and provides outstanding services. When I started the online course, I didn’t even want to be a coach, I just wanted to improve my coaching skills to be a better consultant.Read more

A 6-day journey turned into a 10-day one with the conviction that I wanted to be a coach as well as a consultant. I’d highly recommend CTA for anyone interested in growing their coaching skills.

I had enough time to slowly process and test every information learned and grow afterward. The community is amazing, I became friends with my mentor, my trainer and I met people from all around the world who have the same goals as mine: learn more, grow, transform and then provide the same learning to our surrounding and push them to grow and transform the same way we did. Joining CTA was a start for a journey of continuous transformation! I encourage everyone to join in if they are ready to change and transform!

Every session made me eager to learn more and motivated me to attend the next one.  It has been an amazing and pleasant journey.

Sahishnu Majumdar

I think CTA not just helps you develop as a professional coach but more it helps you grow as an individual. Dr. Haris gently guides you through a process of self-discovery where you uncover more of your true self – one layer at a time.Read more

Our 10-module course spread across 2 and half months was one such journey where when the last session comes to end you awaken to the fact that the journey has just begun. Phenomenal, exciting, inspiring, wonderful, enlightening…call what you may, the truth is that you enter the chrysalis as a moth and emerge a butterfly. Coach transformation is Complete transformation of the Individual. Thank you Dr. Haris for introducing me to a new me

I can’t recommend this workshop enough for anybody wanting to grow their personal or professional coaching skills. It’s changed my life for the better. This is a wonderful opportunity I have, to share some words about Dr Haris SAYED, the Founder and Director of Coach Transformation Academy. It’s hard to keep my words brief and to the point. Haris is a genuinely caring person, one that wants us to stretch and grow as coaches, but also as individuals. He is gentle and so sincere in his want to share the vast knowledge he has with others. I have enjoyed being trained, mentored and coached by Haris, and I look forward to working with him for a long time to come.

My journey with CTA was incredible from the moment I made my first phone call and Noshaba answered my call to dealing with admin issues with Sanchit. The team supported me in all my questions all the way.Read more

My journey was further enhanced when our coach trainer Franda Graves supported and partnered with me on this journey of becoming a coach and transforming myself into a better me. She is truly so insightful, wise, experienced and a stronghold as trainer. I experienced a great team of people lead by an insightful leader Dr. Haris Syed who truly understands coaching in all its aspects. I highly recommend CTA as learning centre if your dream is to become a coach in whichever situation or direction you wish to develop in

Dear Dr. Haris, the least to say is a million thanks to you and your distinguished team for facilitating this transformation for me to earn this designation.Read more

 You really made my day and more than that, with this qualification I feel like I have really invested my time and effort not only productively but in an efficient and effective manner throughout this pandemic.
You made it worthwhile and not an easy accreditation and that made the difference quite honestly so I feel the earning bit more than the entitlement bit.

Joining CTA is indeed one of the best decisions I have made as it not only helped me grow as an individual to see beyond but also transform into a coach with a heart and soul. Ms. Franda Graves’s teaching and guidance has been an important part in my growth as a coach.Read more

The regular nudge of confidence she gave us during our lessons empowered me and brought the sort of passion one needed to thrive. Her time was shared with me whenever I needed to discuss the course or how my coaching is progressing. The coach transformation journey was further nourished with Dr. Syed Harris’s teachings, and that’s to say coaching lies deep down in a place where we are all able to reach once we start to explore our emotions and not limit to the thoughts we cultivate. It truly has been a wonderful experience, I was also able to get ample support during the course from the team at CTA . My first call was to Ms.Noshaba Mehwish, for an introduction and she was patient with all my initial questions. From the first class to now Mr. Sanchit Jain has been a great support with many questions I have for him up to now related to the course. It’s been a wonderful experience and I wish CTA the best always!

I selected CTA for a coaching training mainly because Dr Haris is so well recognized and incredibly qualified to deliver such program. Not only did I get what I expected to get which is all the knowledge, experience and structure required to eventually become ICF accredited but I also got tons of things I didn’t expect. Here would be my top 3. 1- Meeting incredible people. Despite the remote environment I got to meet and practice with people from all over the world with such different backgrounds and yet so similar qualities. 2- Flawless organization. Well supported by his staff and modern communication tools as well as a well-built Learning Management System, I never felt lost and was almost handheld throughout the entire program. 3- Fun.

So much fun. Sometimes the program requires us to go deep and discuss heavy topics, but many times we get to have fun and Dr Haris demonstrated a great sense of humor! As a cohort we developed sort of a team spirit despite the distance. The intensity of the program brought every participant just closer together and we all support each other to achieve our goals. You never get to feel lonely and can always count on others no matter what time it is, since we re from all over the world! Thank you for everything Dr.Haris!
