WHAT DOES K’ENSO MEAN?
These two concepts refer to the ability of an individual or a team to connect with the self and community, and to their wholeness, and to allow themselves to catalyze and evoke their own transformation, in an uninhibited space.
Together, they create the beautiful whole, and epitomize our core coaching, facilitation and project management approaches.
EXECUTIVE COACH PROFILE
RESHMA AZIZ KHAN – Certified Executive Coach
Reshma’s calling is to work with socially conscious professionals at different leadership levels to work through their transformational goals –whether personal or career transitions, set up of social impact enterprises, stepping up from high potential to high-performance authentic leadership, and other forms of desired transformation. Reshma also has experience with leadership programming for women particularly, and is keenly inclined to work with women leaders. With her French conversational fluency, Reshma has an added advantage in being able to work with diverse clients. Her job as a transformational coach is to help clients find clarity in their own life spaces towards finding completion of specific goals or fulfillment of bigger visions and to choose the steps to be taken towards truly living their own life purpose.
WHAT COACHING MEANS TO ME
“Each of us has the spark within to truly evoke transformation in our own lives. My job is simply to be a catalyst to the client in that space, to help ignite that spark and let clients find their true inner wisdom that will guide their own journey towards reaching their desired destiny”.

BACKGROUND AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Reshma has worked in the non-profit sector for over a decade and has led team strategy, organizational development, and transformation initiatives in various parts of Africa as well as Asia, the Middle East, and North America. Her keen awareness on cross-cultural engagement allows her to respectfully navigate and work with people of all cultures, mind-sets, and diversities. She has a strong background in communications and leadership development, having managed leadership initiatives in the non-profit sector. Prior to this, she worked on research for indigenous knowledge-based curricula and often connects elements and concepts together for joint success.
The core of Reshma’s coaching style is based on Gestalt (the yearn for fulfilment and closure of issues) to hold clients in the present space, and this also integrates the Co-Active Model and some critical parts of the Solutions Focused approach.
Reshma uses creative methods such as visualizations, space and metaphoric exploration, as well as deeply intuitive listening and curiosity, to help clients find clarity on what is truly blocking their journey. She sees each individual coaching session as an opportunity to go with the flow as a way to find true transformation potential.
As a Herrmann Whole Brain Dominance Instrument Certified Practitioner she also observes and works with individual client thinking preferences, and customizes sessions accordingly – from the data and detail oriented logical model, to the people and creativity centred, more intuitive model.

I am writing you to express my gratitude and appreciation for the time I spent with you in the individual and group session. It was really a wonderful experience where I was able to reflect deeply on myself and to acknowledge it as I deserve. Through your inspiration, experience sharing, listening and coaching I was able to re activate lots of buried feelings that I kept ignoring towards myself for years.
I am so grateful that you have been part of the inspiration I have had through this experience.

The individual coaching sessions I had with Reshma were magical; somehow she just made me “pour out” my deepest feelings, fears and hopes. She is a brilliant and extraordinary person who knows what to say and how to say it so that it would be meaningful. She is always professional and made this coaching a memorable experience. I will definitely take the things I learned from her with me throughout my life and career. I would strongly recommend Reshma as a coach who will profoundly impact your career as well as personal life.
