Specialized in providing Executive Coaching, Consulting, Training and Facilitation, globally, locally and remotely.

Facilitation

To facilitate effectively, you must be objective. This doesn’t mean you have to come from outside the organization or team, though. It simply means that, for the purposes of this group process, you will take a neutral standpoint. You step back from the detailed content and from your own personal views, and focus purely on the group process. The key responsibility as a facilitator is to create this group process and an environment in which it can flourish, and so help the group reach a successful decision, solution or conclusion.

Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is a specialized relationship between the coach and a client. Through a process of inquiry, discussion, and other instruments, the coach acts as a thought partner to support the client observe and cultivate his or her leadership skills, try-out new ways of thinking and being, and commit to action steps that aid in achieving the coachee’s goals.

Training

Training is developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one’s capability, capacity, productivity and performance. It forms the core of apprenticeships and provides the backbone of content at institutes of technology maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life. Successful businesses realize training can raise productivity standards. They regard training as an investment, and not a cost.

Testimonials

Mark McBride Head of Global Supply Chain Data, Systems and Reporting Roche, Basel

I had the opportunity to work with Sunita during an annual team meeting where we spent a great deal of time focusing on collaboration within our growing team, and in an expanding global network comprised of hundreds of cross-functional internal customers. She did a great job coaching our team and drove us to some nice outcomes that we’ve successfully incorporated into our development plans for this year. She was receptive to feedback during planning, and did a nice job shaping the content and agenda of our meeting to meet the specific needs of my team. After the event she was timely and thoughtful with feedback and reflections. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Jean-François Vryens Partner, Indufin SA, Belgium

During the HPL program, we had Sunita as a coach for our group of 6. It was a great experience under the leadership of Sunita who managed us with “an iron hand in a velvet glove”! She mastered all the concepts and ideas of the program and was able to transmit her theoretical and practical knowledge and expertise to us.
She was also able to create a real bonding context within our group, pushing us to our limits, always finding the right balance between firmness and kindness but always with great sense of humour and sensitivity.
I will personally recommend the services of Sunita as a coach and won’t hesitate to contact her again in the future for my own challenges.

René Koets Partner at KPMG, Switzerland

I had the pleasure of having Sunita as my coach during the High Performance Leadership course at IMD. Sunita contributed significantly to the group dynamics making it a very open, honest and trusting group. For me personally Sunita was able to challenge me and to provide new insights, which were great for my personal development. Sunita is really open to feedback and able to adjust her role and behavior in a great way to the needs of the group and the individuals in the group.I definitely recommend working with Sunita!

Alejandro García López ePrivate Banking Platform Manager – Associate Director Swissquote

Sunita and I worked together at the end of my MBA and she helped me a great deal during such a stressful time. Her constant personal support and skillful coaching were key to help me focus on my strong points in order to move forward in a confident manner. She was also instrumental in finding the root cause of some long-standing frustrations and developing strategies to overcoming them. I was specially impressed by her great empathy and deep listening attitude as they made communicating with her extremely easy and natural. I strongly recommend her work to anyone looking to make a career change, taking on a new position or simply looking to gain a better understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses.

Frederik Bijlsma Experienced International Sales Leader, Zurich

Sunita really feels her clients and their requirements and challenges. She is very good in putting up a mirror to you and leading you to find your own breakthroughs. Sunita is not only great in methodology, but even better in building a link with her clients. I would recommend Sunita for everyone who wants to become or improve their leadership styles.

John Wagner Vice President Field Service America’s at Intuitive Surgical, USA

I had the distinct pleasure of spending a few days with Sunita in a small group setting, her approach to facilitating a group of individuals who couldn’t be further apart was nothing short of exceptional. Sunita has an incredible ability to get closed individuals like myself to not only open up but to do deep self-reflection; she accomplished this through considerate but tough questioning. I highly recommend Sunita for professional development and career coaching.

Richard Rhemrev Managing Director ICT Service Center Radboud University, The Netherlands

Always wanted to have a special coach? Then call Sunita Sehmi! During my IMD Advanced Leadership training in Switzerland I had the great pleasure to have Sunita as my coach. While you think, you know a lot, it is her professionalism that shows that even senior managers can still learn from the experience of Sunita. This requires someone who is insightful, solution…more focused yet challenging. But the most important is that she appears to be very empathetic in our one-on -one conversations, it proved that she possesses special talents that ensured that you opened up and an in-depth dialogue was the result. A special coach, don’t go for less.

Frederic Wohlwend  Chief Digital Officer at Waypoint Capital, Switzerland

It is when one of my key managers was losing self-confidence, overwhelmed by too much workload and close to burnout that I came across Sunita’s program. It took her a handful number of sessions only to turn the situation upside down and provide him with the tools to express the best of his inner skills and see the road to continuous improvement. The performance of that manager tripled right after the coaching and still resonates among his peer. Outstanding mix of management skills, business psychology and motivational power; Sunita is able to energize whoever is ready to receive such a boost and create new performance dynamics within any corporate teams.

Helene Dranssart Fondatrice & Présidente d’honneur IDEAS, France

Sunita has a very important quality that is not so common: She has a real talent for listening. She really wants to understand what you mean, beyond words. She is able to help you set the right goals and achieve them. In a context of development, it is very useful to find this valuable support.

Rob Jonkman Director Finance at Tata Group, Netherlands

Sunita did a great coaching job at our subsidiary in India at Executive level and with Management Team members. Alignment, personal coaching and bridging the cultural gaps with head quarters were some of the main topics to deal with.

Jean-Marc Bazin Directeur de la Logistique au sein du Pouvoir judiciaire de la République et canton de Genève

Sunita’s business communication coaching is permanently effectiveness-driven. In spite of her constant commitment to surf outside of the comfort zone, she quickly built up an atmosphere of confidence. Her style is involved, pragmatic, constructive and resolutely positive. Her business knowledge will immediately help you to find a solution. I’m quite proud of the progress accomplished with her, especially in terms of professional interactions and authentic leadership.
With Sunita, expect to exceed your key business objectives and to not be freedom from the success!

Steve Garrity Founder at Hearsay Social, USA

Sunita was our small-group coach at an IMD High Performance Leadership workshop, and she was fantastic. Very good at understanding where each person in the program was coming from, and pushing the right amount (eg. she is comfortable pushing you to get better for real) to make progress. Also just a wonderful lady to be around!

Jenny Jeffreys Webmaster at knowitall.ch, Switzerland

It has been a pleasure to work with Sunita over the past 2 years, liaising with her about her monthly contributions to the www.knowitall.ch website as a guest blogger. She is extremely reliable (I don’t think she has ever missed a month), and she always seems to find a topic that appeals to our readers; her blog articles have some of the highest hit rates on the site!

Judi Otteson General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer at NeoPhotonics, USA

I spent a week with Sunita for an executive coaching session where she facilitated our small group. Sunita was patient, calm, insightful and brilliant in so many ways.
