Beena partners with corporate executives to help them look strategically at their careers and, in turn, their work and their lives. She challenges them to shift their perspectives about leadership and success and co-designs a roadmap that elevates the executive’s leadership for optimal impact on the enterprise.

With her direct and warm style of communication, Beena’s clients often cite her ability to get to the core of an issue quickly, enabling much-needed clarity, direction, and momentum for themselves and their teams.

In addition, Beena’s years of experience in management consulting and in brand management provide her a multi-focal lens as executive coach, corporate sounding board, and strategic advisor. Clients view this as a key competitive advantage.

Help Your Leadership Team find Clarity.

Senior leadership teams often struggle to create clarity about decision-making authority. Who is responsible (R)? Who is accountable (A)? Who is consulted (C)? Who do we keep informed (I)?

Our Leadership Team Coaches introduce the RACI matrix to help teams answer these questions and commit to a new way of working together.

Download our RACI template, which includes a sample for c-suite leaders.
