Who is a Coach ?

“A coach is your partner in achieving your personal goals, your champion during turnaround, your trainer in communication and life skills, your sounding board when making choices, your motivator when strong actions are called for, your unconditional support when you take a hit, your mentor in personal development, your co-designer when developing an extra ordinary project, your beacon during stormy times, your wake-up call
if you don’t hear your own, and most importantly: your partner in living the life you know you’re ready for,personally and professionally.”

  • Winning from the inside

    Insights from coaching CEOs

    As 2015 comes to an end, I did some reflection based on all the CEOs I coached this year.What was obvious was that there was a common thread running through all those interactions. In almost every single case, there was an acknowledgement that the external environment was getting way too complex to manage and that, to a large extent, their own inability to perform to their fullest potential was a consequence of the uncertainty, the enhanced competition, the extreme volatilities, and, of course, the increased complexity of doing business.

  • Rebooting the leadership operating system

    By Pratap Nambiar for Straits Times

    Singapore has constantly adapted to keep growing, but what mindset is needed now?

    Using Silicon Valley terminology, a recent Straits Times article (“Singapore: An exceptional start-up turns 50″; Aug 7) referred to Singapore leaders “rebooting” the country’s system whenever needed. It was a reflection of their ability and willingness to constantly adapt and change for the continuous evolution of their country.

    The focus has always been on the vision for the future, with a creative tension that continues to establish competitiveness as a way of achieving continuous growth.

  • Leadership should be inside-out, not outside-in

    By Pratap Nambiar for Straits Times

    I was recently having lunch with two senior corporate leaders and I asked them both what they considered to be their biggest challenge in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. They thought about it seriously and the common response I summed up from different choice of words was “the challenge of continuously and effectively developing leaders”.

  • Characteristics of “engaging” leadership

    Despite the proven correlation between employee engagement and sustainable business growth, the former often does not get as much attention as it should. An ongoing study by Aon Hewitt of organisations that score highly on employee engagement measurements while performing better than their peers, business-wise, attributes such dual success to the presence of ‘engaging leaders’ throughout different levels of these organisations.

    A blog post on HBR.org describes some of the characteristics of such leaders and how organisations that work at making engaging leadership a part of their culture do so. We’d like to list some of the key takeaways from the above-mentioned blog post.
