What People Are Saying
"Shazel is the real deal.
When I first heard her speak, I became speechless. Her voice was powerful and passionate. Her speech was intelligent and influential. Shazel is a moving storyteller. Both the audience and I were captivated, and hung on the rise and fall of her every word.
I was humbled and impressed at how she used my stories and powerful symbolism to fill the audience with hope, joy, and a sense of responsibility to “keep getting on the bus”, as I had done.
I was incredibly touched, and wanted to shout, ‘Pass the collection plate, because we have surely heard a good word here today!’ Shazel has a heart of gold, and a God given gift with words."

because they are expert at their craft. Some coaches inspire us to soar far beyond our self-imposed limitations because they see our innate potential for greatness, even when we cannot. Still, other coaches win our enduring trust as a Mentor because they listen even more than they instruct. And then, there is Shazel Muhammad – Master Teacher, Inspirer and trusted Mentor – Personified.”

“Shazel is an incredible Professor.
With her teaching these courses, it has honestly made [company] feel more like a college campus than a job. It makes coming here each day feel as though I am focusing on my growth and development alongside that of the company, rather than me just working for it. It taught me skills I didn’t even realize I was lacking, and created a common language through which all [company] associates can communicate. Shazel's passion… and the compelling subject matter, are a winning team. I cannot thank you guys enough!!”

The Influencer 2-day training has power to change from inside out.
Time I spent going over the training was completely worth it, Shazel moderating the course with good sense of humor and the highly organized training filled with practical use cases not only helped grasp the subject matter, also was educational. Motivation and ability from 3 different dimensions of personal, social and structural aspects changed my perceptions for good. It not only helped me better myself professionally, it also helped me personally.
