Ritu is a Global Executive Coach and Leadership Capacity Builder with expertise in strategic leadership and organizational effectiveness. She understands well what it is to be a leader in today’s globalized, interconnected and fast changing world of business, commerce and community.

A Canadian citizen (Indian origin) she works from Toronto, Canada & Raleigh, USA. She has lived/worked in Europe and SE Asia, Australia, Seychelles and S Africa.

25 years of corporate experience (global marketing strategy, operations, general management, consulting) combined with developing and honing potential/performance of leaders helps her customize development programs to align leadership effectiveness with business outcomes and strategic goals.

A trusted advisor, she is widely regarded as an insightful collaborator and partner. Her work with leaders - individually and as a team – in f2f and/or virtual settings - is to enable transformation and enhance effectiveness, engagement and influence; manage transitions and change; build strong relationships; enable strategic thinking - as they lead themselves, their teams and organizations into the future.

Ritu leverages her global perspective, multinational experience, business acumen and intuition to support leaders to actualize their desired intentions and prepare for future business challenges.

Her coaching is holistic, results oriented and evidence based. Assessments and discovery interviews help identify all that is within: long-standing patterns of habit, mind-sets and beliefs. She co-creates goals, defines outcomes and develops the ability to ideate and move in new directions and possibilities. This enables change in behavior and also the mindset needed to sustain that change. Thus, the change endures over time, beyond the coaching contract.

Ritu has worked, consulted and coached in multiple sectors: technology, healthcare, tourism, mining, professional services, insurance, automotive, retail & consumer goods’ industries. Her clients include CEO/EVP/SVPs/VPs, GMs, Directors, Engineers, functional leaders and high potentials.
