Facilitator and Coach
Brilliant, warm, and a lot of fun, Kiran is perhaps one of the most capable leaders one could hope to meet.
Our Calgary-based facilitator started with ViRTUS as a client, where she partnered with our company to develop and implement TELUS’ award winning high potential program.
Kiran’s background in coaching and facilitation started in 1998 in the area of career transition, where she supported over 375 individuals in change management and career/skill rebuilding. Her passion for coaching and leadership development led her to TELUS, where she developed new and high potential leaders, and was a part of the team that transformed their leadership and learning culture. During her tenure at TELUS she held a position on their Diversity and Inclusiveness Council and oversaw leadership development for TELUS’ women’s network.
In 2014, Kiran experienced many positive life transitions moving from the Okanagan back to her home base in Calgary, followed by a marriage and newly created blended family; these changes prompted her to follow her dream of becoming an independent consultant. Since going out on her own, Kiran has become an essential part of the ViRTUS team, as well as independently working with Suncor Energy, supporting them through a significant culture shift to embed operational discipline behaviours resulting in increased visible felt leadership, and reinforcement of their safety culture.
Kiran recently completed the Executive Coaching Certification at Royal Roads University.
When she’s not busy with her work or a new project, Kiran she spends her time with her family, traveling, cooking, and reading.
