Leadership Coach and Facilitator

Shanker Venkatasubramanian

As a leadership coach and facilitator, accelerating the inner transformation and authentic embodiment in individuals and teams while enabling them to maximise their potential gives Shanker tremendous joy and a sense of purpose.  With over 20 years of international experience in Business Audit, Digital Finance Transformation, Psychological Research, and Coaching, Shanker designs and facilitates solutions for global clients to unlock leadership potential in cultivating a more human world of work.​

Shanker is passionate about holding the safe space that evokes awareness and embraces vulnerability for his clients whilst allowing them to develop a deeper relationship with their core self, so that clients can walk the journey of not-knowing with curiosity, ease, joy, and kindness.

His presence allows clients to vocalise things they had never been allowed to say even to themselves and be open to what is meant for them from the universe.  Clients have been able to break lifelong old patterns of thinking and move on free of those shackles. The journey for a client can start with ‘What is that I am not seeing’ and end with the recognition ‘I am not seeing my own self’, ‘the beauty of my being’.

Partnering with the client, his approach aims at co-creating a transformative space where clients can expand their perspective and develop a deeply profound relationship with their own selves.  This raises their capacity to achieve higher levels of success honouring both material abundance and spiritual affluence.  To enable such transformation for his clients, Shanker begins the coaching journey with a Foundation session inviting them to re-access their unique Core Self (Core Life Purpose, Core Values, and Natural Gifts and Talents).  Subsequent sessions provide for accountability of their actions rooted in their magnificent unique core self.

In addition, Shanker engages with neuroscience-based advanced and efficient resilience psychometric questionnaires such as the PR6, and the lens of the Existential Universe mapper, a holistic framework to help understand individual orientations, organisation culture, and how they impact each other, to offer developmental directions for his clients.
