As leaders advance in organizations, it becomes less about project management and more about people management. The current expertise of a leader increasingly requires an expansion of capacity and skills to deal with the rapid changes of organizational and global transformation. The way a leader motivates, manages and empowers others performance define who they are as leaders.
Underpinning these leadership horizons is a key message to BE HUMAN.
The same skills that took you to one level might not take you to the next level and there is no blu-print for it. With COVID-19 our level of resilence and ability to flex to new paradigms of interaction is being tested.
As a leader these days, you need to think / act and function within fast moving global economics, and the use of artificial intelligence and digitization. These impacts are being felt throughout ALL industries and institutions so what does it mean for you in your context?
Sabreena partners with organizations and their C-suite executives on role transition, culture integration, career path acceleration and organizational transformation. The aim is to address and maximize leadership potential, enhance targeted organizational objectives, manage systemic complexity, and identify and address areas for further leadership development
These themes are addressed in 6-9 month bespoke coaching programs custom designed to suit the profile of each senior level executive and/or hi-potential candidates. Central to the design is a transformative process that encourages leaders to recognize existing patterns that are no longer relevant to their leadership. They are encouraged and supported to find their own solutions and innovate their current paradigms of reality so that they may succeed in the systems in which they work.
Alex Tan, CEO, DeutescheTelekom Asia Pte Ltd,
I found Sabreena really helpful and sensitive to my needs in the new role. She helped provide a critical sounding board. Being able to take a different stance and perspective to my point of view helps me to see the other side.
Leigh Nippress, Senior Vice President, Capital International,
Coaching gave me an environment that allowed me to ‘say/tell what was on my mind”. Talking through the jumble of thoughts cleared the “air”, my mind, and therefore the future (my future). Early sessions took on or exposed the various ‘issues’, I believed were in my way and then later sessions pulled them together, with a thread or pathway of sharing how I myself could and would find the way forward.
Hock Lye Cha, CEO Sibelco,
Sabreena was engaged to help get me from being a COO of Asia to a candidate for the CEO of Asia. The 6 months coaching has been a success as I was finally appointed as the CEO of Asia in Jan and there has been noticeable change in my behavior by my supervisor and sponsors (outgoing CEO Asia and current Group CHRO and CEO). During the 6 months, Sabreena made me more aware of myself, my work ethics, values and purpose.

“I found it helpful to be reminded by an outside observer that people tend to limit themselves. Some things seem so obvious, but it is always helpful to be reminded to visualize what I want my work-life to look like and then go make it happen. Reading a book about being pro-active doesn’t have the same effect as having Sabreena point out that I’m not being as pro-active as I could be; that I have self limiting paradigms at play. A fish doesn’t know that it’s in water
Dr. Grace Pei, Regional Head of Emerging Markets, Boehringer Ingelheim,
Thank you Sabreena. I came to you at the most difficult time of my professional life. You have always been able to show me a different side, and point me to a different direction. It has been a great experience. When we discuss the issues/challenges I’m facing your questions, our role plays always open my mind to think differently.

Time is a commodity and employers spend very little time looking at an individual’s CV. Therefore, your resume needs to represent you at a glance, as it is your brand and calling card on a page. The verbiage on your cv/resume, linkedin profile and cover letter need to be professionally tailored so that it authentically reflects your personality and achievements.
With a professional resume you are more likely to stand out amongst other applications and more likely to be invited to an interview.
