Ishreen’s particular passion is to enable female leaders in technology and innovation driven organisations to reach their highest potential, be inspired by who they are and be fulfilled by their work.
For the last 25 years, she has provided executive coaching, consulting and facilitation services that enable highly intelligent business leaders to develop a matching emotional intelligence and personal brand consistent with their values and the values of their organisation. Sometimes these leaders are adjusting to new executive roles or looking to develop new skills; at others they are leading demanding initiatives to improve business or team performance.
Typically, Ishreen works with her clients and their teams when they want to increase strategic impact and influence, deliver specific business goals or expand their effectiveness in leading large-scale initiatives. Her work is tailored to her client’s specific requirements and adapted to deliver maximum value within operational constraints.
Challenges that Ishreen has supported her clients with include:
- Developing strategies to overcome a lack of confidence in their ability to succeed in a BIG job
- Managing organisational politics as well as dealing with managerial responsibilities
- Taking a strategic perspective and concurrently dealing with the tactical and operational aspects of their job
- Developing and implementing strategies for success when promoted to board or senior roles whilst developing the necessary skills and aptitudes to succeed
