Geetu Bharwaney DSc
As a seasoned C-Suite executive coach and senior consultant of AIIR, Dr. Geetu Bharwaney works with leaders who are critical to the success of today’s organizations. She partners with executives, senior managers and those on the flight path for future leadership, developing leadership capabilities, cultivating deeper strategic thinking and enhancing abilities to connect with and influence stakeholders and their teams.
Geetu brings 27 years of experience coaching and developing organizational leaders to AIIR. Her work is recognized by global businesses throughout Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia, as well as in China and India. Her clients cover a broad spectrum of industries including global technology, oil and gas, insurance, manufacturing, retail, financial services, healthcare, I.T., pharmaceutical, military and include FTSE 100, Fortune 50 companies, government agencies and service providers, sports associations and public-private partnerships.
She was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Science (DSc) for her unique contribution to the understanding and application of emotion in business.
Geetu has a strong track record of highly successful, results-oriented coaching programs. She attributes her high performance as a coach to an holistic approach to building relationships with individuals, based on trust, collaboration, support and accountability. Her experience and ability to flex her style of coaching enables her to bring fresh thinking to each coaching session, challenging individual leaders in an empathetic yet productive manner. She tailors her approach to empower clients to seek and find workable solutions and make long-term, sustainable behavioral change.
Her coaching style incorporates thought-provoking assignments that challenge leaders to think and move on from their self-limitations, assumptions and thinking patterns. Changes in performance are typically visible to stakeholders, peers and subordinates, with measurable outcomes and a clear ROI for both client and sponsoring organization.
Geetu’s specialism is the advanced application of emotional intelligence which focuses on the awareness and development of emotional resilience and the associated essential micro-skills of understanding, managing and switching emotion. This frees leaders to work at their optimal performance or “sweet spot”, managing their levels of stress and adapting their functioning to meet business requirements. She is the founding director of one of the first companies entirely focused on emotional intelligence coaching, research, development and ROI evaluation. She has published numerous papers and chapters on emotional intelligence, is an internationally respected and recognized thought leader and speaker, and her latest book ‘Emotional Resilience: how to be agile, adaptable and always perform at your best’ was published by Pearson Business in 2015.
She is Hogan qualified, trained in Behavioural Coaching, and qualified in a range of emotional intelligence survey tools. Her M.Sc. focused on the Psychology of Health (City University, 2005) and her Undergraduate degree was in International Business and Modern Languages (Aston University, 1989). She is a Practitioner member of the Ei Consortium, founded by Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis to advance research and the application of emotional intelligence in organizations.
Geetu is an EMCC International Standards for Mentoring and Coaching Programmes (ISMCP) Assessor and Consultant, aimed at providing a consistent and globally accepted benchmark of good practice in mentoring and coaching programme management. Geetu is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Personnel & Development (CIPD), a qualified trainer of three pioneering accreditations in coaching tools including AIIR’s Coaching Mindset Index (CMI).
