I help people and organizations perform at their best. My work includes coaching leaders, advising on people/organizational development programs, and teaching soft skills. In the past, I've coached senior leaders in Harvard’s executive education programs on motivational speaking, built resilience workshops for USAID officers, and helped launch a startup training college students on work readiness and employability skills. As a Client Program Lead for a startup in the US and Canada, I developed a comprehensive executive leadership development program, designed e-learning content for a corporate training platform, and consulted on organization-wide performance development and culture change projects. I am also a certified coach from the Coactive Training Institute, the largest in North America, and the International Coaching Federation (ACC). Early in my career, I grounded myself in diversity & inclusion issues by launching India’s first LGBTQI sensitization program for school students - I spoke at UNESCO headquarters about my work. I have training in a range of self-development modalities, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction, non-violent communication, intercultural leadership, and many others. I’m always pushing myself out of my comfort zone, which ranges from performing in the Vagina Monologues to having had jobs in 5 countries.
Completely personalized. I have a wide range of experience in coaching people and leaders, consulting on HR and performance, and conducting trainings and workshops. I first understand the needs of the person or organization, and then design a holistic intervention for them. As a coach, I'm open, like to have fun, and focus on solving underlying issues. Given that I've lived in multiple countries and traveled extensively, I'm very comfortable with people from different background and cultures.
