I believe that leadership is about leading yourself first.


I help you identify your own core values, emotional intelligence, beliefs and purpose to fuel your leadership style.


This self-awareness is a key aspect of leading others with authenticity and integrity.

I also believe in fun, humility, adaptability, and openness.

When I partner with you

I invite you to be ready to grow, as I challenge you beyond your current perceptions

I find the humour to bring into our engagements with fun & creativity, while keeping a steady eye on your goals

I support you through your challenges while holding deep value for your trust and honour, openness and commitment

I’ve got you - when the ride gets tough, I partner with you to find the clarity you seek

I am Shobna Kannusamy, and I love living a life of purpose, meaning and fun! In honouring my Canadian, Kiwi, Malaysian, and South Indian heritage, I lend a unique lens of diversity, identity and belonging 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 your coach, I focus on partnering with you and your team to enhance your communication, collaboration, decision-making skills, strategic thinking and to build a culture you'd be proud of. Leadership is a constantly evolving journey and true leaders are always learning and growing. 

I guide, strategize with you and support your small business, contributing to its growth and success. I coach you through rough corners and unknowns, to help you gain clarity for you, your business and its future, through igniting your leadership potential and harnessing your power within. I am here to help you adjust your flight path and partner with you as you navigate towards your goals and success.

I enjoy creating fun, collaborative and resourceful engagements - I'd love to connect with you!
