Mandeep is a coach, facilitator and organizational transformation consultant with a background that spans 35 years of hands-on experience creating, and facilitating the creation of, solutions to complex problems involving multiple stakeholders.
In his career, he has worked internationally, across cultures and organizational boundaries, to build IT Systems, reengineer business processes, provide organizational and innovation consulting services, nurture client and employee relationships, and grow companies. He has done this within large international organizations, federal and local governments, nonprofits, consulting companies, and start-ups, in roles spanning individual contribution, consulting, coaching and project, line and executive management. Mandeep has coached leaders at DFAS, EPA, FBI, NIC, OCC, TSA, The World Bank Group, USGBC, and within privately held firms. He is also a coach with the American University Key Executive Leadership Programs.
Mandeep brings this experience, and his fundamental belief in each person’s innate abilities, to create the non-judgmental and energized space for leaders to truly get in touch with what is important to them, and rev up the energy and momentum to make it happen. In the process, they take ownership of their own power. They also leverage their own observations to get deep insights into what’s holding them back and then break those habits. His clients have reported that their work together has been transformative.
In addition, these leaders come to accept the world as it shows up, rather than the way they wish it would. That accepted, they hold the courage of their convictions pragmatically, communicate their vision authentically and directly, and set about influencing the people, networks and systems of which they are a part to create the enabling environments within which their organizations, projects and people succeed.
Mandeep has also facilitated interventions with senior leadership teams, helping them surface key issues and create jointly owned action plans to solve them. His work has helped organizations uncover hidden mind-sets at play in their cultures that have undercut their effectiveness.
