Coaching Approach

Some attributes that are associated with my coaching style are forward thinking, transformative, optimistic, growth-mindset, & gently challenging. I am a Vipassana & mindfulness practitioner.

As a CXO & leadership Coach, I enable clients to become more successful in their dynamic volatile business environment. Operating from a space of empathy, I partner with the client in their journey of self- discovery & creating awareness of their blind spots. The approach is very solution-focused and reflective in nature. The intense dialogues with the client help to understand the individual’s values, belief systems and uncover some of the self-limiting beliefs that is impacting their behaviors. It is a very engaging coaching style, I listen compassionately, and gently challenge the client to achieve success.  The client moves from unconscious awareness to conscious awareness. My coaching style ensures that the client achieves sustainable growth and development and it is an empowering experience for them.

My clients tell me that I make them reflect and encourage them to move and drive actions that enhance their leadership in an enduring manner. As a coach, I am told by my client that my coaching style is transformative as well as supportive of the core of who they are. The empathetic process of dialogue, which uncovers layers of understanding about the issues surrounding one’s situation has helped them in making more actionable decisions. My style throughout the discussion is warm, friendly, supportive and gently challenging.
