He drove by with a wave, rolled down the window and asked,”Kavi?” In an inchoate two minutes, I was seated settled in the comfortable car with his words “I’ll get you to the airport. Nice and safe” to soothe me.
I am a talent and organisational change specialist who loves to play at the intersection of people, technology and organisational change.
With over two decades of corporate experience in multi-cultural environments, both in MNCs and Indian organisations, I work with a wide network of practitioners around the world. I began my career in sales and marketing before choosing to specialise in leadership, talent, organisation development and change.
I have particularly enjoyed working in the areas of leadership transitions and development, M&A integration, cultural assimilation, succession pipeline building and strengthening the pillars of culture. An abiding interest in the power of storytelling and the Future of Work keep my ears to the ground in helping organisations use technology and establish modern workplace people processes.
As an executive coach & Organisational change consultant, I work with senior leaders and select organisations across sectors, communities and geographies . To this end I use a myriad weave of tools such as Design Thinking, Process Facilitation, Lego Serious Play, Appreciative Inquiry and such else. Of course, the tools themselves are not as relevant as the business challenges that are surfaced.
An accent on inter-disciplinary approaches to problem solving, deep listening and a curious mind that believes in the power of conversation provide me energy. I speak at various forums & exchange notes with global peers and colleagues regularly. My website 'In Fool Bloom' (www.infoolbloom.com) inspired by themes of experimenting, working out loud, stumbling & remaining perpetually curious for more, holds a few of my thoughts.
I dabble with social tools. Do check www.about.me/kaviarasu
