Credo

Every human has four endowments- self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change. -Stephen Covey

After a career spanning 25 years over 2 continents (Asia, Europe) and 3 countries (India, Germany, Hungary) in the corporate world, I decided to change my path of professional pursuit. I was primarily in leadership roles for the last 18 years leading teams as small as 3 to as large as 600 of professionals. In 2016, when I decided to change tracks, I was heading the software business of T-Systems, the largest ICT service company in Hungary, with a team of approximately 600 professionals. It was a great honor for me to receive the T-Systems “leader of the Year” award twice (in 2012 & 2015) based on the votes of the employees.

Last year I took a sabbatical and learnt & practiced to be a coach. Now, I work as Coach, CXO Advisor and Inspirational Speaker. I believe the bedrock of Coaching is enhancing Awareness. I aim for my clients to have a better quality of life, by taking them on a journey of self-discovery in which they are able to see more and more of their own selves, their true motivations & emotions in the light of awareness created in our joint sessions.

Work

Work

I was primarily in leadership roles in the fields ranging from financial controlling & planning to IT services and projects. As a business leader with T-Systems, I handled tasks in the field of business planning and strategic planning for my division. As a member of the leadership team I worked on the delivery and portfolio strategy of the company. I have also been on the forefront of the initiative to establish the common culture of the newly formed T-Systems (in 2012), have sponsored various innovation projects (especially in the area of Business Intelligence, Cloud services & Big Data) and have led cultural change programs for my business division.

I have dealt with clients from the following industries: Finance, Transportation, Energy, Healthcare, Government, Media, Telecommunications & Retail. Needless to say, as a service provider, I made it my business to understand the business of my clients and have an overview of the challenges, transformations, technological and business innovations relevant to their respective industries.

Expertise

Leadership development

As a leader, I always strived to provide two things for my people: Sovereignty & Empowerment. Now as a coach and leadership advisor, I work with individual leaders or with leadership teams on enhancing & expressing their true potential. My aim is to make them feel empowered & equipped to move confidently towards their own goals and ambitions.

Business strategy

The most important aspect of business strategy in today’s ever changing world is Adaptability i.e. the capacity & agility of responsiveness to changing circumstances. I have been a part of the fast-paced IT world and this agility has been the second nature for me as a leader. Today, I share my insights and experiences with the business leaders to create a sustainable and congruous business strategy.

Transformation management

To me transformation is a future oriented & holistic change encompassing the Operational, Logistical, Technical, Human, Process and Value aspects of an organization. Such a change needs an organization wide conviction and sustained commitment from the leadership. I have been a part of many such transformations in Siemens & T-Systems.
