About Bhavana

I am passionate about working with individuals, teams and organisations, who want to change, grow and make a difference. It is particularly gratifying for me to visualize change and and then see it manifest, both at the individual and at the organization level. With over 18 years of experience in diverse global companies either as an HR leader or as a consultant and coach, I bring practical experience of accomplishments inside organisations along with a depth of professional knowledge which I continue to develop.

While there are many ways of describing me - ranging from a romantic poet to a cynical activist, what I would relate to the most would be a curious learner and an adventurous biker.

I believe we thrive in organizations or spaces that are co-created, trusting, gently challenging with honest and direct communication. Such spaces are the bedrock for multiple perspectives and only when there are multiple and diverse perspectives, can we create new possibilities (“Sambhaavna” in Sanskrit/Hindi).

Currently, I partner with organizations in the areas of Strategic Human Resources, Organization Development, Capability Building and Talent Management. My areas of interest include Change and transitions, Innovation, Creative expression, group dynamics and transpersonal psychology.

There are many customised ways in which I partner with organizations ranging from long-term agreements (12-36 months) for change as a part of organization development to short-term project-based interventions (5-6 workshops) for capability building, leadership development or results-based executive coaching (9-18 months). As a member of a network of associates, I partner with other OD consultants to service the needs of the organizations.
