Ruma Biswas

Senior Executive Coach & Facilitator

About this Coach

He is a versatile leader and coach with extensive experience with MNCs and family businesses. He adopted coaching and mentoring techniques first as a line manager, mentoring young leaders within MNC environments. Now he coaches a range of leaders from C-Suite to more junior “managers” striving to become “leaders”.  He is often described as a great listener but he also actively pushes counterparts to explore their blind spots for growth opportunities.

His coaching principles often center around helping individuals to be grounded in self-awareness and awareness of others. This coach encourages his clients to explore self-potential by stretching them outside their comfort zone. He also helps leaders clarify longer-term personal and career goals based on deep exploration of their values and experiences. His background in leadership positions within MNC environments across geographies and functions, allows for a natural connection with his clients. They feel a sense of ease knowing that he has faced many similar challenges. Moreover, his non-judgmental approach allows them to feel additional comfort and confidence during the coaching conversations.

His business experience spans over 25 years, including over 20 years with the Royal Dutch Shell Group in Hong Kong, London, China, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia. He brings a wealth of experience in leading people and teams in the areas of operations, strategy, business development and business transformation.
