My passion is to support and be part of people’s journey as they make transition into new behaviors, new situations, new roles, new companies or new geographies. I have particular expertise in adopting a global perspective and understanding the nuances of working with multi-cultural and virtual teams. I use my diverse and business background to bring in a broad perspective and pragmatic approach to behavior change and getting measurable results.
My areas of expertise are helping leaders improve performance, preparing high potentials for new responsibilities, building teams for growth and expansion and helping leaders during transition
My coaching experience includes working with middle and senior management in large multinational organizations, nonprofit organizations and entrepreneurs.
My coaching approach is pragmatic and results based. I believe in challenging and stretching the leaders out of their comfort zone while supporting them with compassion. My business and diverse background helps me to use and follow a structure that resonates well with the leaders. My coaching is all about creating awareness and getting measurable results. I use a structured approach yet flex and adapt to match the leader’s pace and needs. I use my welcoming warmth and empathy to support the leaders during their journey.
These are my areas of competencies, most of my work either through individual coaching, group coaching or facilitation has been on these topics:
Empowering Others / Delegation
Relationship-Building / Networking
Transition Management / First 90 Days
Women in Leadership
Conflict Resolution and Difficult Conversations

Ritu has strong active listening skills and the ability to ask thoughtful, probing questions that helped me to focus on the action steps that were available.

“Ritu helped me navigate some complicated personal & business issues with my co-founder. The first step in this process was to evaluate my own strengths & weakness so I can better analyse my reactions to the unfolding events. Her suggestion of using Strengths Finder by Tom Rath was very helpful and illuminating. With those insights and Ritu’s skilful questioning I was able to better understand my relationship with my business partner and take some corrective actions.”
Under Ritu’s guidance, I did an exhaustive series of coaching sessions where she really helped me understand myself better. It was a great journey for me and she was very patient and calm throughout. I was able to easily confide in her and make tangible course corrections in several aspects of my life. I’m sure that lot of people will benefit through her coaching. I wish her the very best for her future.
