Stillwater specializes in mindset-shift programs helping high potential managers to identify barriers preventing them from operating at their highest effectiveness. We work in two areas – “leadership effectiveness” and “executive coaching”.
Stillwater programs are unique as they are highly experiential and conversation-led rather than lecture-based programs.
We use a mix of asynchronous elements, that cover the theory and frameworks of leadership effectiveness, and synchronous elements, that are highly engaging exercises in live virtual sessions to create the highest impact and engagement.
We have done these programs with CEO and leadership teams, senior leaders as well as mid-level managers and management trainees of some of the best companies in India, Middle East, Africa and Australia.
We (Kanishka Sinha, Girish Manimaran and Avantika Sinha) started Stillwater Consulting in 2011 to address what we felt was a significant learning need for high potential executives and senior leaders – identifying distorting beliefs that hold them back and building new empowering beliefs that could serve them well in creating the life they want. In other words, helping leaders make a “mindset-shift”.
In our experience training and coaching CEOs, Senior Leaders and high potentials, we’ve realised that quite often individuals intellectually “know” what they need to do in order to be effective in producing the results and relationships they want, but don’t “do” what they know they need to do (to be effective), because of deeply held beliefs.
Sometimes they are aware of their limiting beliefs and are afraid to take risks/behave differently and in some situations, they might not even be aware of which beliefs are holding them back. Stillwater leadership programs and coaching conversations are an opportunity for participants to take a deep dive and identify the distorting beliefs that hold them back, chart a clear path to what they want to create in their life and build new skills and behaviours that can serve them well on that journey.
