A couple of key challenges was time management & grooming to be a more effective leader. The intervention was a first for me and expectedly, in the beginning, I treated it with circumspect caution. However, as we progressed into the sessions, it helped me identify the ghosts within and try to tackle them with a constructive approach. The single largest outcome was the ability to identify if a roadblock was real or an amplification of my imagination. This ability helped in both personal and professional spheres immensely. If you are really in a place where the outcomes are predictable, try a new approach. The invested time will heed massive outcomes in the long term and leave you with far more satisfying result across the process chain.

I wanted to say a special thanks to my coach Shalini for supporting me with her genuine efforts for 6 long months. Post each of our sessions, I realized a new way of looking at things. During my tenure, I learned what my leadership style is and how it affects my ability to lead. As a coach, Shalini really pushed my limits and unearthed the leader within me and brought immense learning about energy levels. This awareness helped me in controlling myself much better and is assisting me in being an effective leader. I am very grateful to Zirca for considering me under their leadership development program. Time well invested!

It was such an incredible journey and I always believed that I have the ability to be what I want but had an awfully hard time achieving my goals. Everything is the same but what has changed is the way I take up new challenges and risks. It’s great to learn from Shalini on how to set short term and long term goals. There were tough times with her when she challenged me to think differently and encouraged me to find my own solutions. I usually finished each session motivated with a number of exciting trials for myself. I would like to thank the Zirca Digital Management for giving me the opportunity to be part of the learning session as it has made a significant difference in my path to being a better, tougher me.

I had the privilege of being coached by Shalini as a part of the Zirca program to nurture leaders. The coaching helped me in fundamentally relooking at my leadership style. The biggest benefit was that it made me conscious and continually aware of my emotions when I respond to different situations. This awareness led to a balanced response which in turn created positive outcomes in various situations. The coaching also covered various levels of leadership and how to go to higher levels of leadership to remain focused on the outcomes and achieve a win win result for all concerned. Shalini’s leadership coaching style is friendly yet balanced. She gives you the space to experiment with methods but also is persistent to ensure there are no slip ups along the way. Pivoting to an evolved leadership style is about reengineering your thoughts and actions at a fundamental level, and having someone like Shalini guiding you is a great thing to happen. I would recommend Shalini as a leadership coach and hope you have a company like Zirca to be there for you.

Shalini is wonderful as a coach. What sets her apart is her empathy and her tremendous tenacity to take her coachee to a point of reflection and then permanent realization. She does it with love and a style I have not come across to date. I have gained tremendously working with her.
Shalini’s direction on coaching goes beyond the norm of what is usually expected. Her genuine care for releasing the potential from others and tapping into areas of self-improvement allowed me to learn an abundance in a short amount of time. It was a foreign territory for me particularly on a 1:1 basis. Yet Shalini puts the person at ease in the driving seat whilst guiding you, on a self-discovery focusing on leadership techniques and approaches on a weekly basis. Not only was I able to apply these in my day-to-day but also measure the success from it. I have appreciated her time and patience in teaching me new skills, or even working on areas most of us would ignore. You will find a new excitement and appreciation for self-development. Shalini’s coaching has taught me to believe in myself and give more to others. I recommend others to rely on her expertise and mentoring to help change your mindset – big or small organization would benefit greatly on integrating this in their workplace. It takes a small step to make this change and Shalini can be the key to support you on the journey if you are ready.
Shalini is a great coach to have when at crossroads of any kind. Through our sessions, she has broken down trouble areas, helped understand their innate causes and worked patiently at getting to solutions that are well defined and permanent in nature. I have managed to accelerate my work deadlines, improve my method and shed work induced anxiety through Shalini’s unique six step process of effective leadership. She is a compassionate and brilliant coach who understands every client needs different measures – and she guides their way with deep intellect and sound knowledge.
