"Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another."
- John C. Maxwell
If Mineela's work as a coach could be summed up, it would be that she is a leadership and personal development champion.
For over two decades, Mineela has partnered with hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders to assist them in becoming the confident leaders they wish to be.
Leadership is and always will be about relationships. But, to lead well, Mineela believes that one must lead oneself well before leading others. By working with her, both new and seasoned leaders learn to harness their energy and drive to achieve more.
Mineela has developed a form of executive coaching and training that exists at the intersection of behavioral science, business, spirituality, and neuroscience.
During the years of working as a licensed therapist and coach, Mineela has observed a commonality in all great leaders: the ability to not only lead an organization to achieving its goals, but, also the deep desire to support and develop people.
Leadership is more than a set of skills and strategies. It is the ability to focus, create and follow up on achieving their vision, and build up these skills in others.
In the end, Mineela believes that leadership is a skill available to everyone as the unifying vision of the best leaders is to leave the world a better place.
"You're the real thing!"

Mineela is masterful at determining if precursor needs have been met and, if not, how to achieve them so change becomes possible, and inevitable.
Here's the unstuffy part of my bio...
Honestly, I could care less about telling you about all my accomplishments. (My detailed CV can be found here on LinkedIn.)
I would rather stay focused on doing the work I am so passionate about - the personal development of people so they can contribute their best to others.
I have been in the business of change ever since I could remember. I also deeply believe in the goodness of humanity and its capacity to create and build novel, helpful, and beautiful things.
No one is an island and I am not any different. I and my work have been shaped by many people who have shown up in my life as leaders and guided me along the way.
Now, it's my turn.
I am, first and foremost, a mother of a teenager, an avid Marvel fan (because the good guys should win in the end), and a hoarder of knowledge for knowledge's sake.
My neurodivergence means my kid has learned to sustain herself on gummy vitamins on those days I get hyperfocused on some new idea or problem I am grappling with.
As an individual who is ADHD and Autistic, My neurodivergent mind is beautifully different. It has made it possible for me to be skilled at solving problems creatively, coming up with elegant solutions, thinking out of the box, and curiosity that has resulted in knowledge in a variety of fields both logical/rational and creative.
Things have never interested me.
People are an obsession.
