I am Shobna Kannusamy, and I have always strived to live a life of purpose, meaning and fun! In honouring my Malaysian, Indian, Kiwi and Canadian heritage, I lend a unique lens of equity, diversity and inclusion that informs my approach to daily personal and professional connections. Having navigated through career transitions, chasing after goals and success on my own terms, I bring my intrinsic values of trust, integrity and compassion, and commit them to every engagement.
As a leadership coach, I focus on working with you and your team to better your communication, collaboration, decision-making skills and a culture you'd be proud of. Leadership is a constantly evolving journey and true leaders are always learning and growing. I offer a variety of coaching services, including one-on-one coaching, team coaching, and workshops, to help you achieve your goals.
