The key to my success is my ability to bring people together, inspire them with a strong vision, co-create a roadmap towards achieving the vision, and continuously fuel the momentum with quick wins by instrumenting iterative delivery
Who am I?
I am a pragmatic Enterprise Lean-Agile Transformation Coach, Organizational Change Artist, Professional Life Coach, Collaboration Expert, and Professional Trainer with a passion for steering individuals, teams, and organizations towards expressing their full potential.
I have led at Agile transformations at multiple large scale organizations across the globe.
While I spend most of my time unleashing the group genius in organizations, I equally enjoy facilitating transformative growth within individuals through one-on-one coaching outside the organizational context.
I coach and train executives, ScrumMasters, Product Owners, and teams on Agile principles, lean philosophy, and 21st-century management. I also teach coaching, facilitation and change management art to Agile coaches and Scrum Masters
Fun facts: I have dipped my toes in Improv theaters, acted as supporting lead in a full feature Bollywood movie, and climbed the Peruvian Andes, Turkish Taurus, and the Nepalese Himalayas.
