Osnat Nissani

Osnat Nissani has over 25 years experience in executive coaching and leadership development. As an Executive Coach, Osnat is a master of The Handel Method®. Her expertise includes relationship development and management, professional effectiveness, Personal Integrity®, productivity, leadership and creativity. With HG Corp, she coaches executives to enhance their leadership skills and specializes in her ability to align teams and organizations. As a key member of the HG Edu division, Osnat leads courses and workshops for students, administrators, teams, and teachers. She is committed to bringing HG’s coaching methodology to mainstream education and provide students, administrators, and faculty with tools and life skills to transform their personal and professional experiences.  

Prior to joining HG, Osnat owned and operated a successful business venture. As an executive, she relied on her entrepreneurial spirit, artistic eye, and creativity to personally pioneer and develop a jewelry line that was later sold to stores owned by one of the largest buying groups in the United States. She uses this experience in her work training executives, administrators, and students in the language of accountability, helping to accelerate and bring resolution to issues and challenges across a host of different sectors.

Osnat currently works with CEOs, Presidents, and CFOs, as well as administrators, teachers, and students at primary and secondary educational institutions, including:

  • Leadership and learning programs in NY Public Schools
  • Designing Your Life workshop to grades 6-8 at the Dodd School
  • Leadership development for teachers at York Early College Academy
  • Leadership programs for administrative teams at public schools in the Bronx and Long Island
  • Executive coaching in the advertising, technology, manufacturing, financial, hospitality, and real estate sectors
  • Leadership development programs in technology, manufacturing, and hospitality sectors   

Growing up in a kibbutz along the shared border between Israel and Southern Lebanon both emboldened and humbled her. Because of this early life experience, Osnat is fluent in both Hebrew and English, politically sensitive, and extremely resilient. She lives in Forest Hills, NY and has two grown sons. She loves shared outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and kayaking. As a parent herself of a learning-disabled child, Osnat’s deep commitment to assisting parents and families who face similar challenges has enabled many children to secure the life-changing support services they need, and has provided her own family a model of strength and philanthropy.
