The Mindset Coach, Speaker and Facilitator
Positioning you for success
Jasbindar has provided Executive coaching and mentoring to me since 2005. We first met at the Institute of Strategic Leadership at Millbrook, Queenstown in October 2004. Jasbindar stood out as a reflective and insightful programme coach. Her conversations around a 'spiritual quotient' creating effective leaders, in the same way that IQ and EQ are recognised attributes were the first of their kind that I had heard. Since that time, Jasbindar has provided excellent direction to me on values, motivation and personal integrity. I have no doubt that my ability to effectively manage a team now totalling over 3000 Air New Zealanders is in no small way directly attributable to the sessions we have had. Jasbindar has provided great motivation, considerable clarity and a lot of humour and humanity along our journey. I have no hesitation in providing the strongest endorsement of Jasbindar's talents as a coach and mentor, and I count myself fortunate to have been a beneficiary.

My gift is helping technical professionals translate what is traditionally regarded as “soft skills” into tangible, real and practical actions, which helps them deliver results for their organizations and advance their careers.
For example, technical professionals such as IT, Engineers and Finance become better communicators who are able to more effectively engage and mobilize for greater success. Greater engagement has a direct hit on sales, customer service and profitability.
“Jas makes a personal commitment to her clients and has a wisdom seldom found in others working in this space. A fabulous role model, Jas flexed her style to work with HR, Finance, Engineering and the Executive teams to bring about true transformation.”
Angela Neely, Organization Development Manager
Because of these results, I have built a successful practice as a Leadership Coach, Business Psychologist, Author and Professional Speaker with over thirty years experience. I am the Director of SQ Executive Management Consultancy Ltd; an Auckland based coaching and consulting practice.
Some examples of my services include:

Leadership coaching helped a telecommunications IT executive become a more effective leader. His employee engagement score improved from the low 30’s to high 60’s (as measured by a reputable employee engagement global survey) creating a more cohesive and high performing team. The added bonus was that all his 12 direct reports also lifted their engagement scores from between 5 -35 % resulting in improved relationships and business success. This was a great example of the cascading effects of a leader’s impact. Client feedback:
“Your coaching has been invaluable in helping me grow in my role and in enhancing my capability to deal with the challenging issues I faced.”
Vision and Direction Team Coaching and Facilitation
Helped the Board, CEO and his leadership team come together on their strategic vision and direction for this significant player in the travel and tourism sector.
As the CEO said afterwards, “it was a better than expected outcome.”
EQ (Emotional Intelligence) Executive Coaching
Helped a highly competent technical client enhance his EQ and lift his leadership impact with not just his direct reports but other significant stakeholders. An exciting development was the creation of a new R & D team, which led the organization to successfully identify and create opportunities and strategic partnerships in new areas of service delivery thus adding to their top-line. Client feedback:
“Your work with the team at the front end was the key to our success in working together as a team.”
CEO coaching of SME
Increased profitability by 1600% through various strategic actions and doubled the size of this technology company to 35. Client feedback:
“Working with Jasbindar was the best business decision I have made. The positive effect it has had on my work and personal life has been truly remarkable.”
Helped two senior leaders in media who needed to collaborate but were instead at not just loggerheads initially but the relationship had totally broken down to the extent they could not even bear to be in the same room with each other. Helped the two parties have a significant breakthrough. Client feedback:
Afterwards, the manager’s response was “In my mind, I had given you at 15% chance of creating a shift so am totally astounded at what you managed to do!”
Leadership Development and Career Coaching
Many of my clients I have coached have transitioned successfully from being a General Manager to Group General Manager to CEO roles. A recent client had this to say:
Thank you for the congratulations - it certainly is a challenge I would not have thought of taking on if I hadn’t had your input over the last few years.
Presented at an ICF (International Coaching Conference) in Australia, as one of the 5 breakout sessions. Considering the 275 or so attendees, this was one of the biggest sessions with over a 85 attendees. The feedback was amazing.
“I heard Jasbindar present at the ICF conference a few years ago and her session has stayed with me over the years. She was present, profound and most of all real with her audience. She truly lived her brand and I was impressed and moved.
I highly recommend her to the judges of this award as someone who has the courage and wisdom to share herself with her audiences in a way that invites them to step into their own potential.”
Organization Development – a 360-degree assessment of the entire senior executive team
A GM of sales I was coaching found the qualitative 360-degree so useful that he shared this with his CEO who then commissioned me to do the same with his entire leadership team. The leaders then came together and shared this with each other focusing on their key area of development.
“I have done a lot of 360’s in my life but this was the most tangible and useful in that I could actually do something with.”
