who we are

A specialist in leadership coaching and passionate about people management,
Jaya’s coaching expertise builds on a strong foundation of over 20 years in senior management positions in Nokia, including Head of Global Cash Management.

She has also been Nokia’s Regional Treasurer for Asia-Pacific, managing high performance, cross-cultural virtual teams across continents on a daily basis and was consistently in the top tier of leaders.

Experience gained at a global organisation has given Jaya deep insight into the working environment of her clients. This organisational and strong business experience, combined with empathetic coaching skills, enables her to support clients in their search for solutions to leadership challenges.


Before moving to Singapore in 2004, Jaya was based in Geneva, Switzerland, where she discovered the power of coaching at the Program for Executive Development at IMD in 2007. This sparked her decision to train as an Executive Coach.

Jaya holds a Masters in Counselling (Monash University, Australia) and a BA in Economics and Psychology (Bombay University, India). Jaya is a Newfield Network Certified Executive Coach in Ontological Coaching and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

She is certified for MBTI® Step I & II, CCL Benchmarks®, Voices®, Hogan, Influencing Style Indicator, Workplace Big 5,EQ-I 2.0 & EQ360 and NEO-PI-3 Personality Assessment.


Jaya’s interests lie in meaningful communication, cross-cultural relationships and helping develop women leaders. Having spent half her life in India and the other half studying and working in Switzerland, she successfully bridges Eastern and Western thinking, with an in-depth understanding of both cultures, being a Third Culture Kid (TCK) herself. She holds Swiss and French passports, Overseas Citizen of India and is a Singapore Permanent Resident.

Jaya is multilingual – as fluent in English as she is in French – and has conversational level German, Hindi and Punjabi.

She helps leaders develop the skills to use storytelling and visualisation to influence, engage and inspire. She is the Singapore partner of Anecdote International and Bikablo Akademie. More information can be found on All Lined Up.

what we do

our services Quote from Carl Jung
how we do it

Our Way of Being drives our behaviour and determines the actions that we consider taking and those we cannot imagine taking. This choice determines the results we create.

To change the results we want in life, we need to change our ingrained behaviour and the way we view the world.

Coaching helps you take the first step to see the world differently leading to constructive and productive behaviours.

Change your perspective – Change your life.

Ontological coaching is holistic, using language, body and emotions.

The body and our emotions are vital in an oral communication – only 7% of a message is via words, while the rest is based on non-verbal cues from the speaker.

We generate our reality through language and often get caught up in the stories we tell ourselves, which may limit our potential.

moods and emotions
Moods are filters through which we observe the world and shape our capacity for action. Our moods govern our behaviour: how differently we behave when in a mood of resentment compared to when we are joyful!

We express our moods and emotions through body language. Our bodies can be used to support us in achieving our goals as well as to create a leadership presence.

why it matters

With change as a constant feature of all organisations, your ability to adapt to and proactively manage change is what will set you apart.

Under ever-increasing pressure from corporations to deliver more each year, you need a safe and confidential space to reflect on issues, taking time to make strategic decisions instead of resorting to fire fighting.

Coaching gives you the right tools to communicate effectively and build productive relationships. It will help you grow, take on new responsibilities, and become an inspirational leader.

Coaching equips you for the next challenge and does not leave your career to the vagaries of chance.
