Dr. Clara Wajngurt
WHO IS CLARA?
I am an executive coach, author, speaker and professor in higher education for thirty five years, an expert in the self-development of others, and in empowering those around me. I first learned about coaching when I was coached for a higher education administrative position. I found the process fun, liked the feedback I received from my coach, and appreciated her leadership style.
Over the years, I have devoted my career to encouraging my students and colleagues to take control of their lives, setting goals, and in making positive choices. This has been shown in my teaching, in my math anxiety workshops and more recently in my STEM workshops. As a union advocate I not only negotiate for employment rights in the workplace, but for excellent working conditions for faculty and staff. I have been actively involved in grievances, tenure and promotion decisions, job security actions and discussions on benefits for employees at our university.
My passion is to make a difference in improving the quality of higher education and the corporate world so that levels of attainment are reached and strong relationships between colleagues occur for advancing a healthy and productive work environment.
My approach is generally by phone – or can be done in person as well. Sometimes it is one session and sometimes it is several sessions depending on the person.
My experience is being available to others as I have been available as an advocate and union officer who has served others well, for resolving their complaints and issues with the higher education system
Sometimes in the case of workplace bullying, people are afraid to put testimonials www.bullyingpreventionconsulting.com· A testimonial appears on my website on line. I hide their identity when a testimonial is made on my behalf.
Yes, I have the ability to develop a strong trusting relationship with a client. I care about people and I sincerely want them to do well.

When colleagues work together as one team, the success of the university and corporate environments move forward. Strong leadership, collaboration and communication will encourage all colleagues to work effectively with one another and will help show appreciation for one another.
