I am RAJAL
I am a Leadership Coach, Mentor and a Strategist
HBR Advisory Council Member
I admire Peter Drucker - Management Guru, Author and Professor of Management. I love his famous quote “Only three things happen naturally in organizations: friction, confusion and underperformance. Everything else requires leadership.”
I strongly believe that Leadership can make or break an organization. The best technology & business process are ineffective in the absence of effective leaders who cannot develop themselves (both personally & professionally) and also a leadership pipeline with a human-centric approach.
Interestingly, I am bringing with me @15 years of a very rare combination of proven LEADER-COACH experience !
As a result-oriented hands-on transformational leader, I can anticipate & deeply empathize with the leadership challenges of rapidly scaling organizations. Also I recognize & foresee ‘what got them here will not get them there’.
With a knack of spotting spark in people, my niche, as a CEO Whisperer & CXO influencer is to enable organization to move from ‘good to great’ by harnessing the abilities of high potentials working across disciplines and professional boundaries with a holistic GRAVITAS HALLMARK© framework curated based on my experience of building a mindful strategic leadership capacity both locally & globally.
Being an active member of both HBR Advisory Council & FORBES Coaches Council, GRAVITAS flagship offerings are curated choosing the right best management practices and latest trends from both.
As a strategist & business growth expert, I partner with corporate and entrepreneur leadership to decode and simplify their strategic initiatives, untie the knots in their heads and able to provide different perspective, developing a sharp awareness, knowledge and skill to sense what is within their control, and what they have to relinquish control of to achieve exemplary business results. I aim to skillfully empower them with the indelible trait of picking the right battles to fight and win the war.
Having worked in various countries, with incredibly diverse, talented team, I also specialize in intercultural coaching, which is key today to excel in multicultural and complex environments.
In a nutshell, being a life long learner, I have a natural flair for interacting with leaders - of today and tomorrow.
I enjoy nurturing my curious mind & that of others through coaching.
I am a PHILOMATH and try adding value to anybody interacting with me
I am joyful and full of life person. My core aim is to live life queen size - Life Ko ACE Karo !
Having grown through conquering many adversities, a growth mindset has been a consciously practiced philosophy for me. I have redefined my identity to turn every adversity into an asset.
You only see a part of me. The part that is rooted in my different roles, not in my soul. All that’s unseen completes me, and from there I draw my strength.
I founded GRAVITAS for Leadership Consulting, Coaching and Mentoring. It was not a career path, but a calling..
I found my MOJO~ and hence loved designing and creating this website myself from scratch, after learning from my daughter.
