“As a woman of colour being able to speak very candidly about some lived experiences others might not understand, gave our sessions extra depth and allowed me to truly open up.
To demonstrate the results – while doing the sessions I have built out steps for a side business that is an extension of my creative and playful self. I am moving to another country on great terms with my employer and I had the courage to step up to do a skills swap for a course I really longed to do but never thought it was possible.
I can’t do Shalini’s coaching skills full justice … I just wish we had done it sooner! She just gets it.”
Entrepreneur and Digital Marketing Consultant
Hello, I'm Shalini...
I'm an executive coach, trainer, and facilitator. I have over 25 years of experience in the corporate world, augmented by leadership roles in the not-for-profit and public sectors.
I have lived in Hong Kong and Singapore and worked all over the world in sectors including telecommunications, technology, finance, professional services, government, health and infrastructure.
Prior to founding my own coaching business, I had previously had a career as a lawyer in the City of London, followed by a second career in learning and development. I have a strong interest in equity and inclusion, and in seeing more diverse leadership teams in all sectors and at all levels.
My style is calm, warm and empathetic – but challenging too. I work closely with all my clients to create rapport and build a strong partnership. I bring all of my knowledge, experience and intuition, but most of all bring a quality of deep listening and attentiveness that enables my clients to slow down, pause and use the space to think deeply and creatively.
I work with clients in different ways, focussing on approaches that resonate with them, but always with a mixture of support and challenge. Whatever the topic, I support clients to work out what they are learning about themselves and their own thinking processes.
I keep a focus on clarity, whether that is around goals, actions or self-knowledge; and I work with clients to create both their overall vision and the practical steps needed to achieve it.
