About me

Leadership Coach - London

Manju is a leadership and performance coach, helping leaders and managers to achieve high levels of performance through a focus on wellbeing and resilience. She tends to work with senior leaders and line managers in corporates, SME's and start-ups in UK and abroad, to develop deep self awareness and adaptive leadership skills in readiness for new and challenging roles.

Having worked for a global professional services firm for over 12 years, Manju's combined experience in talent development and employee wellbeing, means she has a deep understanding of what makes individuals succeed by advancing their cognitive, emotional and relational capacities.

Coaching style and approach

Manju works with a style that builds relationships quickly and provides the space for exploration and growth in thinking - from a growth mindset perspective and strength-based approach.

Manju often uses psychometrics to understand her client’s mental and emotional models and the extent to which these are applied to realise true potential in the business’s context.

She partners with senior management teams and line managers, including women in leadership to:

  • embrace change and build engagement to develop the application of emotional intelligence
  • improve resilience and wellbeing through effective coping strategies
  • leverage strengths and identify workable strategies to overcome leadership performance risks
  • support to transition back to work or entering into roles to reaffirm self-confidence and motivation for organisation-wide engagement
  • navigate through complexity and ambiguity, enhancing their personal influence and preparedness
  • establish and embed peer-to-peer coaching that helps the team to ‘get better at getting better’ and a care for succession.

    Outcomes of coaching support

    Manju prioritises the need for clients to build relationships that go beyond their personal needs, and in doing so they become more accessible to provide direction.

    Clients that have worked with Manju experience renewed energy, clear sense of purpose and direction, improved confidence and increased engagement, performance and motivation in the delivery of their objectives.

    I have learnt to stop and reflect, something I did not often take time to do properly for any length…As a result of this I am able to better identify my personal trigger points, allowing me to better manage my own response and approach to matters. As I have never benefited from any coaching sessions in the past, my expectations were somewhat limited and outcomes unknown. I think an effective coach partner needs to mirror certain qualities which you yourself aspire to achieve and hold. I certainly found this in the time in which we were working together. Your calmness, kindness, and considered approach to matters positively enhanced the experience and ultimately lead to the success of our sessions. A.G. Fundraising Business Partner

    Manju has helped me with navigating my career over the last 12+ months. She has helped me to work on confidence at work and how to lead an appraisal process with my line manager. She has also supported me to be assertive with senior leadership in order to craft my role to one that is more aligned with my strengths. I now have a much better working relationship with my line manager, I'm able to speak assertively about my successes with leadership to enhance the perception of me at work. I'm much more confident in myself and my abilities. Investment Manager
