About Listening Connects
My name is Sajid Alimohamed. I am a leadership coach and facilitator and the founder of Listening Connects. I grew up in Toronto, Canada in a Khoja family as a Shia Muslim. 

I have been a madressa teacher, an active member in the Toronto and Edmonton community, an English teacher and mentor living in Syria while learning Arabic, a Qur'an Tafsir teacher for youth for the Academy For Learning Islam (ALI), a leadership facilitator for youth and adults for NASIMCO, a professional engineer, and a father. 

I have a vast amount of experience working with youth: Facilitating retreats across North America for approximately seven years and then becoming a professional coach and facilitator running my own organization.

I am an expert at helping people become conscious of their personal purpose and identity. Then I help them transform their negative thought patterns and results into positivity and actions that move them towards fulfillment and true happiness. 

My programs build confidence and enable a change in mentality.

For me, if it wasn't for a few Muslim camps that I attended as a young adult, I would likely have made a number of incorrect life setting decisions that prove to haunt so many others. 

- A miserable marriage leading to divorce.
- Poor habits that intoxicate and cause depression
- A destroyed outlook and years of counselling

I feel that it is my duty to share what I have learned and give what I can in this world.   

"Sajid is one of the most influential individuals I have met. Within a short period of time he was able to create a safe space for me to open up about my personal challenges and guide me through them. Prior to meeting Sajid, I had created a lot of barriers in reaching my goals but he opened my mind, allowing me to realize my true potential. 
Personally he has given me simple yet effective advice, which has made my life more positive. I especially appreciate that the advice and guidance he gave was tailored to my needs. 
Since I have greatly benefited from Sajid's mentorship, I am confident others would too."

- Sayed Walli, Allentown, USA
"Sajid has the unique ability to pinpoint areas of strength among individuals, and put them in an environment where those strengths are best utilized. He also has the charisma that drives people to maximize their capabilities, while guiding them towards a goal. He not only personifies leadership, but also inspires leadership in others."

- Taha Kermalli, Allentown, USA
"Be it in a group or a one-on-one setting, Sajid will always listen to you and come up with meaningful questions and insightful reflections for your development. He's extraordinarily patient and willing to meet you wherever you are in your personal journey.

"Working with Sajid has been both insightful and transformative. Sajid uses his expertise on leadership development and capacity building with his ability to connect with individuals in a meaningful way, to provide guidance, practical tools and to inspire change.
His sincere desire to assist others in their personal and professional pursuits deserves the highest of accolades because when you engage with Sajid, he always finds a way to connect with you and make things real.
Sajid is an influencer and role model. Just talking with Sajid inspires me to be better and do better. His non-judgemental nature makes me feel comfortable to share my insights and seek his counsel."
- Raihanna Hirji-Khalfan, Toronto, Canada

"My experience learning from Sajid has made me a more effective and mindful leader. It has helped me understand the art behind relationships, vulnerablity and couragous communication which has impacted every area of my life. Through his expertise and mentoring, I was able to appreciate the value that relationships play in community building, leadership development, and activism. I highly recommend Sajid to those who seriously want to impact meaningful change into their careers and lives. "
- Nasiba Mohamedali, Toronto, Canada
