This week, I’m delighted to bring you an interview with my guest, who took up an amazing opportunity, that opened up insane learning and facilitation opportunities.

The example that he shares in the episode of SAYING YES is so encouraging, and I hope that after you listen, anything you’ve been unsure about, not sure that you’re really ready - well, I’d say, jump in! Give it a go!

My guest today is Khoury N Ahoosh ,the founder of Andina Advisory.

Khoury is a bilingual executive - and he’ll share that language is what provided some of the amazing opportunities he shares on today’s show.

During his university studies, he moved to Mexico to learn Spanish and to live the USA-Mexico relationship from a different perspective. This experience awakened an attraction to difference and change, a belief in the power of relationships and humane instincts, and a passion for Latin America and the world—all of which has shaped who Khoury is today and his contributions to clients.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How to adapt from being an external consultant, to working in a leadership team inside an organization
  • How to accept, then work with with unpredictable opportunities that open up the doors to new experiences
  • How learning a new language can differentiate you, and help you get those opportunities
  • The importance of being attentive, and being a great observer in your workshops

Khoury moved to Santiago, Chile, in 2018. In addition to his work with clients across the region, he has been a mentor for Promociona Chile and is a member of Job4Women, both organizations seeking to increase the participation of women in senior roles and in the workforce in general. He is currently a member of the World Economic Forum’s Mining & Metals Future of Work Taskforce.

His career in facilitation began through the colleagues he started to work with in the global consulting firm he joined just three years after undergrad, doing executive assessment and executive development work.

He went into a double career transition, first into a Chilean copper mining company as a senior HR leadership team looking after organizational effectiveness. After two years in the company, he founded his own consulting firm in Chile.

Khoury travelled in 15 countries on six continents working across cultures, partnering with leaders and teams to bring change in organizations.

Are you spending an untold amount of time and money spinning your wheels - yet creating no meaningful change momentum?
