About Ruma

Ruma is a highly proficient C-Suite Coach with an international background. She cultivates open & honest conversations and has coached leaders (1:1 coaching) as well as executive teams & members of the board (Systems coaching). She also brings in a unique concept of using nature as a co-coach to bring in transformational perspectives.

Her coaching mainly pertains to 5 elements of any successful & high performing individual or system: (i) Autonomy or individual brilliance of leaders, (ii) Inter-dependence, (iii) Channelling the energy in conflicts, (iv) Vulnerability and (v) Direction or Purpose.

Her passion is to co-create a social impact through change in beliefs and cultural shifts in leaders & organizations. She has lived in the US, UK, India, Hong Kong and coached & trained leaders across US, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and India.

With almost 20 years of corporate background before becoming a coach, she brings a rich experience of leading high performing teams in large MNCs and has unique experiences of being the only woman in high stakes sales and negotiation processes; and being the only woman in her Mechanical Engg class. Today, she is on the board of 3 ventures, a prolific writer on leadership topics and a keynote speaker on relationships & systems. Ruma has been published in leading publications in India such as Huffington Post & PeopleMatters.
