Making that first step towards people.

On using LEGO in self-development and being intentional with Amale Ghalbouni.

Making the First Step: A Chat with Amale Ghalbouni

In this episode of The Introvert Networker, we’re having a conversation with Amale Ghalbouni. An Ex-executive strategy director turned executive coach.

We’re delving deep into Amale's unique career journey from Lebanon to the UK, the nuances of networking especially for introverts, and the importance of intentionality. Amale sheds light on her experiences as a 'people-person introvert', various transitions she went through, and her learning curve. She expands on the concept of Lego Serious Play and how she uses it in coaching sessions. A significant takeaway from the talk is the value of taking a step back, being intentional about one's choices, but also being prepared to adapt.
