About Zari Zavala-Ruiz

My Story

My experience includes managing research labs, science programs, team-building, and empowering women in leadership. I graduated with a BS in Chemistry from the University of Puerto Rico in 1999, followed by a PhD in Biological Chemistry from MIT in 2004. I then transitioned to science administration over ten years ago and completed Executive and Leadership Coaching training at the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies. As a fully bilingual individual (English/Español), I have a roadmap to leadership fulfillment that involves:

  • Equipping leaders to do exceptional work

  • Identifying strengths and opportunities for self-discovery

  • Facilitating the development of crucial leadership skills

  • Partnering with leaders to achieve their goals

The Benefits of Leadership Coaching

Increased motivation

It can get lonely at the top! A leadership role can prove stressful if you’re lacking key skills for affirmative engagement with your team, and this, in turn, can be demotivating. Teaming up with a coach to receive support and to clarify your direction is the best way to turn that situation around.

Communication and collaboration

You may be an expert in your field, but an essential aspect of leadership is the ability to negotiate different personalities and get the best out of your people. A coach can hone these talents with you so that your team remains happy and engaged.

Performance boost

There is a wealth of material available on leadership qualities, goal-setting, and creativity in books and online courses, but you can save time and get better results by working with a leadership or business coach from the outset, one who shows you how to elevate your performance with proven tactics that work. 

Let's Work Together

If you’d like to overhaul your leadership performance but just don’t know where to start, I can help nurture your ability to shine. Contact me today to learn more and book a consultation that will change your career for the better.
