“Executive Coach” Senior Associate
Mandeep partners with leaders who want to bring their own vision and passions into service for the world. This necessarily means deep inner work – increasing self-awareness and personal mastery, taking ownership and accountability, and expanding the ability to influence people and networks from within the system. While this may sound like hard work, in practice it tends to be completely natural, energizing, satisfying and fun. “Serious” and “impactful” are not correlated. Mandeep’s natural style is gentle, and his clients and he tend to forge long term, easy, trusted partnerships.
As a coach, Mandeep brings this experience, and his fundamental belief in each person’s innate abilities, to create the non-judgmental and energized space for leaders and teams to truly get in touch with what is important to them, and rev up the energy and momentum to make it happen. His clients take ownership of their own power. They also leverage their own observations to get deep insights into what’s holding them back and then break those habits. A number of his clients have reported their work together has been transformative.
In addition, these leaders and teams begin to accept the world as it shows up, rather than the way they wish it would. That accepted, they hold the courage of their convictions pragmatically, communicate their vision authentically and directly, and set about influencing the people, networks and systems of which they are part to create the enabling environments within which their organizations, projects and people succeed.
Mandeep considers himself extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to express his passions through two completely different careers separated by two decades. The path of transition has been bumpy and fascinating, and has provided Mandeep the direct experience and insights which make him the coach he is.
Mandeep is also an Executive Coach with the American University Key Executive Leadership Programs.
As a consultant, Mandeep facilitates interventions with senior leadership teams, helping them surface key issues and create jointly owned action plans to solve them. He is adept at uncovering unclear, missing or misaligned roles and accountabilities, business process gaps, and unspoken organizational agreements on topics that are undiscussable. Mandeep can create environments within which teams bring up the elephant in the room.
