Testimonials

"I had the privilege to work with Shivani through a leadership development program. In the 8 months we worked together we focused on improving my executive presence and breaking down self-limiting beliefs by putting my values first. She understands complex matters, even when outside of her direct area of expertise, by carefully listening, asking thought-provoking questions without judging, leading to refreshing insights that challenge the status quo. She always follows up with tools allowing me to take action ultimately to help my team and myself to become better versions of ourselves. Above all, she does this with a genuine, caring and humble approach. I constantly felt Shivani was one of the very best coaches I've ever had the privilege of working with. I am deeply thankful for better understanding myself personally and professionally. I can only wish you the same experience with her.  "

JEAN-PAUL NELEMANS

Regional Sales Director Salesforce

"Mrs Buchner supported me with management coaching during my role as a COO. The company was going through the usual pains of a start-up morphing into a more established business. This involved supporting me in implementing transformational change, helping me identify triggers to adjust mindset and more importantly showing me how to keep my people motivated and identifying with the company. Mrs Buchner taught me a lot about how to support my teams through this period but more importantly, she helped me understand and work on my own triggers and growth areas to become more impactful. Thank you and I look forward to working with you again in the future. "

"Shivani worked with me on further developing my leadership skills – she is a very talented, intuitive and natural coach. She helped me to identify and gain clarity on my personal and professional goals, how to make significant progress towards them and how to break up thought patterns that were holding me back. With her values-centred approach, Shivani challenged me to think beyond the “normal” and encouraged me to move out of my comfort zone. Practising with her, I saw situations from different angles that opened new perspectives and helped me to realize more of my potential. Her positive, humorous and compassionate personality makes her very easy to open up to and wonderful to work with - it’s been a great journey!"

"There are, of course, many wonderful coaches--competent and truly helpful people. Shivani belongs in a very small subset of that group: the rare and magical coaches. She can hear you fully in a way that few humans can, seemingly suspends time so there's enough for the whole story, while also keeping things moving so you are done when you need to be, having defined your next steps. Her knowledge and experience run so broad and so deep--the result of years of curiosity, no doubt--that she can go wherever you need the conversation to go. The tools and attitudes she helped me hone have taken me to an entirely new and unexpected professional and personal level. These days, I feel at peace or know how to get there, no matter what is going on. My life unfolds in front of me and even the struggles feel like a form of grace."

"I've worked with Shivani on improving my leadership skills. Before the actual coaching, I needed to go through a series of questions which I've also shared with my colleagues. In the coaching session(s) we went through the results and defined clear action items. In my personal opinion, Shivani has the right balance between talking about the "Why" and afterwards helping to find the "How". If you are looking for someone helping you to challenge the status quo and finding solutions, you should consider Shivani as your coach."

"Shivani is such a great person and coach! She helped me develop myself and change my mindset to allow me to be much more successful at work and find ways how to improve my work/life balance. She is one of the most honest people, with a high degree of integrity that I have met and I feel grateful for having her support, even after the coaching sessions ended. I can highly recommend having a coffee chat with Shivani - you will want to start working with her right away and never let her go :) Thank you for all your support, Shivani!."

VANESSA CORREA

Global Head of Operations Flexport

I have been working with Shivani for nearly a year and she has been fantastic in helping me to gain better clarity around my own values and worth and to help me to see things through a different lens - I feel that I am crystal clear about this today and this is down to the work that we have done together. She always surprises me in the way she sums up our discussions as they come out in such an eloquent way and she gets to the heart of the matter really quickly - she has a keen understanding of people, what motivates them and what they care about which makes her really effective as a coach. I hope that I have the opportunity to continue to work with Shivani and I would definitely recommend her as a coach to anyone who is looking at knowing themselves better, really understanding how to influence others and effective decision making through mutually beneficial conversations as well as preparing for career advancement discussions. On top of this, Shivani is a really lovely person and easy to talk to and bond with.

In the context of business coaching I worked with Shivani over a period of 6 months and what can I say: The coaching was not only very fun but also efficient and effective. Shivani always did a great job of preparing and following up on the individual sessions. What I especially appreciated is that she also shared her perspectives which were super helpful for me as a form of 3rd party feedback. As a result, I would be happy to work with Shivani again anytime.

Getting to know Shivani did change my belief in such experiences like coaching. Not just because she is a really great coach, her vast expertise and helping me

to find myself, no, furthermore she is such a great person where it was very easy to commit to and eagerly await the next coaching session. The style she

has with her openness, relaxed nature and happiness, to guide through the sessions not losing the focus was amazing. It was a great pleasure for me to learn from

her and use all that going forward in the future. If there is any possibility coming up again I would be more than happy to work with her again.
