Effective leadership relies on a quality of awareness that allows for aligning our attention with the intention we set for our professional and personal lives. Setting our intention starts with noticing that something is not right, that some kind of change is needed. The scope and depth of change depends on how we attend to what is going on and on our persistence in moving toward what we dream is even possible. This kind of alignment is evident in Sahar’s own journey that is marked by her courage to make a difference in a number of countries and professional settings.
