Sharon Armstrong and Associates

Dr. Zayd Abdul-Karim brings widely acclaimed expertise in the training and psychology of effective self-leadership and conscious thinking—ho w great leaders think. Dr. Zayd is an Inspirational Speaker, Coach, Trainer and Author of four books on personal transformation. He is a Catalyst for Growth and Inner Peace and is affectionately called “Dr. Z.” His life mission is to serve the purpose of Releasing Inner Power for Balance, Happiness, and Peace.

What qualifies Dr. Z to be known as the “Voice of Self-Leadership?” He was a troubled inner-city teen whose fears led him to adopt self-destructive thoughts, feelings and behaviors that held him back. He learned how to transform himself from fear, abusive behaviors, and mediocrity to love, inner healing and excellence. He lives to teach and give testimony to the power of mercy and self-leadership. Dr. Z raises consciousness and ignites constructive energy through coaching, keynote speeches, company workshops, public seminars, tele-seminars, and weekend boot camps.

At the brink of failure and flunking out of college, Zayd developed a system to overcome fear through courage, faith and persistence. Now he holds a doctorate in Adult and Continuing Education/Human Resource Development from Virginia Tech. He has facilitated learning and development sessions with many thousands of people throughout his career. For over 15 years, Dr. Z has served as part-time faculty in three universities: Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University; University of Maryland University College; and National-Louis University.

A motivational coach, acclaimed leadership educator and author, Dr. Z’s groundbreaking programs and presentations explore how exceptional leaders translate their formative experiences into powerful habits of mind that guide their approach to leadership and change in their lives. This approach can be applied by anyone wanting to improve their life.

He is a superb speaker on personal transformation, self-leadership and managing change in work and life, with a strongly positive message. Dr. Z’s fresh strategies and entertaining style involve each participant in identifying the source and foundations of their unique leadership. He offers a FREE 45-minute seminar that is ideal for staff meetings, all-hands meetings, or “lunch and learn” sessions.
