Shajmiil Smith

With more than 20 years of business management experience, Shajmil has directed large and complex corporate strategies in the healthcare industry that have yielded multi-millions in new revenue, increased customer satisfaction, and improved operational performance. Her experience spans leadership and executive roles in management consulting and with Accenture, Kaiser Permanente, and Anthem, Inc., specializing in product development, strategic portfolio management and healthcare operations.

Although business success has fulfilled many goals over the years, her success as a team leader and people developer is what fuels and energizes Shajmil. She has learned valuable lessons from the people she has been honored to lead, coach, and mentor. These lessons have shaped her philosophy, “Lead from Where You Are™, which means taking action no matter what you are facing. It is a mindset for movement, growth, and taking personal leaps. 

Shajmil’s leadership coaching approach creates a safe, yet bold space that challenges leaders to show up fully and reach their leadership aspirations. Whether the focus is leading strategic change in your organization, developing high performing teams, or maximizing personal impact, Shajmil partners with clients to achieve their desired results.

Shajmil lives in the Washington DC Metro area with her husband and two teenagers. During her spare time she enjoys hiking along the Potomac River, family movie nights, and cheering “loudly” for her daughter during club volleyball tournaments!
