“I found great value in working with Arya Salehi. He is a great listener and extremely understanding. Arya asks all the insightful questions that, when answered, expand awareness and build knowledge for a leader.”Dave Macek
Executive Director
Red Lotus Society

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been professionally coached by Arya Salehi. Arya was able to seamlessly incorporate my career goals in line with my cultural views. Rather than seeing the two as conflicting with one another, through his coaching and feedback, I was able to intertwine the two. A new perspective that allowed my goals to align with my internal and external views. Arya’s ability to share his own experiences in an authentic and vulnerable manner allowed me to do the same. Arya, your mentorship has been a tremendous asset to my personal and career growth, many thanks!!”

“Arya’s ability to teach his clients how to tap unknown talents is a talent in itself. In all my experience, never have I seen anyone explain and teach such a complex construct as effectively as Arya. Tapping ones creativity to their fullest extent is extremely valuable in today’s marketplace. This explains why Arya’s workshops will add value to any industry. Just look at grapelabs.com and get a glimpse of this cutting edge technology.”

“If you are looking for workshops that prompt you to think from differing perspectives while also encouraging you to engage in the sharing of ideas through group interaction, then Arya’s workshops are highly recommended. The DNA tool is invaluable! The project wheel and “wildest expectations” exercises make you wish the workshop would never end. Without a doubt, these workshops give you the feeling of joy and fun while facilitating learning and connection with others within the organization. I cannot wait to see what other creative workshops Arya has to offer!”

“I learned that adaptability is different from conformity.”

“The seminar put me in a position of really narrowing down what is truly important and what I’m going to work on today, tomorrow, and thirty days from now. I actually went home and started working on exactly what I intended to work on without feeling as overwhelmed as I did before.”

“I realized that fear is holding me back. Visualize the end game with clarity.”

“The workshop was outstanding. I loved the fact that how motivating you were and more importantly your ability to connect with the audience, it made me to instantly believe in me. I was so impressed with the fact that how you made everyone in the room engaged and empowered. Also I loved how you added some humor and some personal experience it made it very fun and intimate.”

“I realized that I am responsible for my dream and I must move forward despite fear of failure. There is no other option if I want to realize my dream. Keeping the big picture in mind and focusing on what I can do today and this moment is vital if I want to see my visions come to life. I also learned it is okay to revise and rework the elements of my goals as I grow and experience the process. The negative self-talk has to stop. Thank you!”

“Great energy, thought provoking. Lots of information about creativity.”

“I enjoyed the energy and excitement and unique information that was shared.”
