Developing Conscious Leaders & Mindful Workplaces
is a Certified Leadership Coach, a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultant, a Professional Speaker and Facilitator. I help leaders heighten their awareness so that they can uncover their blind spots and cultivate better leadership habits.
Why I do it
Everything begins with the brain. From a young age we are conditioned to think and behave in certain ways based on our upbringing. These patterns become deeply ingrained and some of them serve to amplify our leadership potential while others detract from it. It requires a commitment to the ongoing process of self-awareness to continuously uncover our blind spots in order to discover which habits are working for us and which are not. Then it takes conscious effort and discipline to replace old habits with new ones. But the rewards are priceless.
The neuroscience behind all the work that I do excites me not because I’m a scientist by training but because I have experienced first hand how transformative this process can be. As a student of these principles my own life has been impacted in ways I could have never imagined. In fact, I believe in this work so much that I changed my career path to dedicate my life to this: to developing conscious leaders and mindful workplaces.
I am a passionate advocate for diversity –it has shaped every aspect of my life. I’m proud of my multicultural background as a Montreal native with both Hispanic and Indian roots, fluent in English, Spanish and French.
