The Barakah Effect: Prophetic Leadership and Productivity for Professionals
The Barakah Effect is a practical one day workshop that focuses on how to lead yourself, and lead others - from a Prophetic perspective. **What is the purpose of this workshop? The Barakah Effect helps Muslim Professionals practically implement our Prophetic teachings in our professional lives. We've all had conversations where we say things like, "I have to turn off my Islam when I get to work." And by that we don't mean that we hide the fact that we're Muslim. It means that we have to act like a different person. We have to put aside our faith values such as humility, selflessness, and things like shunning praise and credit. Instead, we feel like we have to be selfish in the name of business. We do this because we're taught you have to play the game to succeed. But what if there was another way? What if we could stop compartmentalizing our faith and spirituality? What if we didn't have to turn if off when we clocked in? It's our firm belief that the best of the best teachings in leadership and productivity ultimately come from the most productive man that ever lived and the most influential leader of all times. However, for many years, his teachings have become disconnected in a way that we no longer think how to apply the lessons in our professional lives - or worse, we think that we simply can’t apply them. We’ve come far in compartmentalizing our faith. We forgot (or even don’t know how) to let the Barakah enter the workplace. The funny thing is, everyone has observed Barakah - including non-Muslims. They just happen to call it different things - like serendipity, or "karma." They talk about putting good things "into the universe" and letting the "universe reward you." We know that what they observed is actually Barakah in action. And we have the blueprint to unlock it based on the teachings of our faith. That’s our unfair advantage. How do we get the Barakah in our lives to help us lead ourselves, live a balanced life, and turn around and bring that to our organizations and teams? **A Glimpse at What You'll Take Away From This Workshop: Developing a daily system for yourself that keeps you at peak performance - spiritually, mentally, and physically. Feel fulfilled. Break out of the productivity trap of looking for new apps and hacks to constantly maximize your output. Instead, learn how to *multiply* your efforts by tapping into the power of Barakah to power through your every day challenges the obstacles holding you back. What did the Prophet's (s) day look like? What can we emulate from it? How do we apply his daily habits and routines that to a modern day workplace? How to not just delegate, but empower people around you. Learn the intricate tricks Shaytan plays on us to paralyze us with fear - making it hard for us to be decisive, or even speak up in a meeting at work. What tangible and practical things did the Prophet (s) do to develop the people around him? How did the Prophet (s) lead the un-leadable? Deal with difficult people? Dealing with failure, setbacks, and when things don't go as planned. What does a Prophetic leadership style look like? And how is it applied to a modern professional environment? Authentically implementing your spiritual values in an environment that doesn't prioritize faith. Balancing humility with ambition and assertiveness. What Prophetic work/life balance looks like in regards to your self, family, and community. **Instructors Mohammed Faris Mohammed is an internationally sought speaker, coach, and author who spearheaded the niche of productivity and Islam.
