I have spent over 35 years in corporate life in senior positions retiring last year as a US partner with KPMG.
I have lived and worked in India, Indonesia, Nigeria, US, Russia, Middle East and Singapore. I have always got a lot of joy from helping people and over the years have coached and mentored a lot of my subordinates, peers, and seniors as well.
When I turned 50 I did a lot of soul searching and decided that the purpose of life is to live a life of purpose.
I looked at all possibilities and felt that my competency and interests were perfectly matched through coaching and so I joined ICA.
I am now a performance coach to CEOs and it is extremely rewarding to help them unlock their potential and as my company’s tagline says ‘ make clear thinking visible”. The highpoint of my career was when I got interviwed by Channel News Asia on a live program ( after Robin Sharma of ” The Monk who sold his Ferarri fame) that focused on the subject of CEO coaching particularly in an economic crisis.

How are you using coaching to make a difference?:
After I coached the CEO of a large Bank, they felt that this is an experience that their senior managers also need to have. Further, they are also getting me to train some of their key talent to develop coaching skills so they could begin to bake coaching into their DNA.
What was the most valuable thing you learned at ICA?:
The community of practise sessions were most rewarding. It was great to be able to share and learn from first hand experiences and discuss scenarios with fellow practitioners. I heard about ICA from an alumni friend who recommended it to me. Since then I have recommended ICA to several others. ICA strengthened my resolve to become a coach and help senior management maximise their performance potential.
