How to Rise A Champion During Tough Times - An Interview With Sam Fouladgar


With current news of job layoffs and restructuring, there is an urgent need for working professionals, young and old, to take matters into their own hands and rise to meed the demands of the modern day job economy. Today, we're going to talk to Sam Fouladgar, a business trainer and coach about his new program, and hear from him how successful people have overcome adversity in the past.

Q - Tell us a little about yourself, and what sparked your fascination in the field of coaching?

Sam - My fascination with coaching started back in 2005 when my life went upside down. I was in a place in my life where I was lost, unsatisfied, broke, and depressed. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I felt like a complete failure.

In that low place, my mind started asking questions, that keep me curious till today. Questions such as: What's the diffirence between successful people and non successful people? Happy people and unhappy people?; What do these people do differently?; How do successful and happy people think, feel, believe? What are their values?

After I started asking these questions, I went on a jounrey to study the best of the best. The champions of their fields that make it against all odds. Champions in business, high performance athletes, entreprenuers, millionairs, billionaires, and Highly profitable companies. 

I started to see that there was a method to their madness. These people think differently. They behave differently. Therefore, they get different results compared to most. 


Q - What sort of work have you done in the MENA region, and what does it entail?

Sam - My work is divided into three main services:

Corporate training: this is where I perform edutainment training to companies and organizations on how to think and behave to achieve success in life and business.

One-on-one Coaching: Companies and individuals hire me to coach them on how to take control of their lives. It could be to get better results in life and business or to overcome difficult times that they are facing and come out stronger on the other side.

Corporate Culture Strategy: I provide consultations to medium to large size companies consultations of building a resilient and high-performance culture at work. This entails coaching the top leaders and executives on building, managing, and inspiring teams that cultivate a positive environment where employees can thrive.   

Q - What kind of problems and notions are the majority of the people encountering during these times?

Sam - It would  seem that every person is dealing with a different and unique situation on the outside. Some are dealing with financial problems as to how they will pay their bills. Others are worried about the uncertainty of the times we are going through. What were really dealing with is whats going on inside of us. Huge changes and uncertainty like this ca provoke a lot of internal states. Emotions such as: worry, stress, anxiety, fear, panic. 

While the majority call me to solve a problem they are facing in the external world, the conversation majority of the time will be about how to get the employee, manager, CEO, businessman or woman, or entreprenuer to manage their emotions to handle the situation at hand and take charge. Even if the issue is financial instability. They fail to realize that their bank account is linked to their emotional account. If you are controlled by fear and panic, odds are you will not take action, or you will not make complete sound decisions if you were feeling hopeful, determined, and loving.


Q - We understand that you’ve created a program that helps people endure trying times like these. Can you tell us a little about who the program is aimed for and what will it provide?

Sam - I originally developed a program to help companes and their employees deal with the 2016 crisis. So when we started going into these difficult times, I wanted to help in any way I can. So I designed a free 4-day coaching series specifically for the 2020 challenges we are facing.
