Communications Director & Certified Y.E.T. Instructor & Facilitator
My name is Amira Rizk, a Marketing Manager in an FMCG corporation, a Youth Couch, and a former High school Psychology Teacher.
After being in the workplace for more than 15 years between teaching & marketing, I realized that to succeed in a career you needed to be equipped with a number of social skills that was way more important than the technical know-how of the job. How to communicate effectively with your managers and colleagues, how to understand problems arising and deal with it in efficient ways that won’t harm your relationship with others, how to build successful and healthy relations with your colleagues, and finally how to communicate and plan effectively to achieve your goals at work and personal life.
And as an introvert, that was my real challenge when I first started my marketing career till I luckily bumped into one of Gordon Training International models (Be Your Best) followed by Leadership Effectiveness Training (L.E.T) that taught me everything I needed on effective communication and problem solving skills along with all helping skills for others to lift them up helping me empower my team, colleagues, and loved ones much more than I thought I could ever do.
Ever since that, everything in my life has change drastically making me wish someone had taught me all that earlier, especially during my teenage years. All those life skills that would have empowered me early enough to create the success I always dreamt of. And this wish became stronger when I taught high school students psychology for two years and experienced closely through our one to one sessions the challenges and struggles each one of them was going through. Since then, I decided to be a certified Youth Trainer for the Youth model of GTI , Youth Effectiveness Training (Y.E.T) to pass on this knowledge to teenagers from age 12-18 years to help them gain early enough all the skills they need to help them tackle a better life and more successful future. To help them become more aware of their own needs, skillfully relate to people who are different from them, make friends easily, and confidently express their needs and get them done without harming others.

“This program is definitely one of the best things that had ever happened to my daughter. I saw her blossom from one session to the other. I have noticed a great change in handling all situations that she used to find challenging before. Moreover, all her teachers started commenting on the change in her attitude especially during conflicts with her classmates and dealing with disappointments. Everyone noticed how her usual negative mindset was becoming more positive. During those weeks she had become a calmer and a happier teenager. .She felt safe ,loved ,finally understood and accepted for who she really is as well as equipped with a tool box to deal with different people or situations in her life”
“As a mother of a very quiet young lady that rarely share her feelings. Y.E.T program helped her express more her feelings towards me and her brother and sister, which is a GREAT change.
