Gulnar is passionate about helping leaders to understand and embrace inclusiveness, cross-cultural dynamics, and diversity. She enables them to gain a deeper self-awareness, to actively embrace change, and to recognize and harness differences.

Her work shaped by a powerful blend of natural curiosity, strong business acumen, in-depth research and extensive experience. She takes clients beyond what they know, feel and do to a place (and a way of being) that is fundamentally better – for them, for business and for society.

- Improved productivity and effectiveness
- Attracting & retaining talent
- Enhanced employee engagement and commitment

Gulnar’s approach is defined by three words: Conscious. Culture. Change. She believes that unless we make a conscious commitment to change, that much of our training and development initiatives are not sustainable.

Authentic and Inclusive Leadership

Gulnar Vaswani

Business and society are in a state of upheaval against a backdrop of globalization ‘gone wrong’. With trust at an all-time low, and uncertainty at an all-time high, companies need a different type of leadership in order to thrive in these challenging times.

Leaders today need to be inclusive and collaborative. They should be at ease working across geographies, cultures, and generations. They focus on fostering innovation by harnessing diversity. They appreciate ‘difference’ as the basis for competitive advantage. And they empower and value the unique contributions of every individual in their team and organization to optimize potential and achieve and sustain high performance.
