Executive coaching is a journey to gain awareness and insight into your own leadership abilities, so you can be more effective in your organisation.
The world is changing all the time. Modern life presents us with challenges – accelerating rates of innovation and development, pressure to deliver more, often with fewer resources.
We are linked in a world where technology can mean we are always connected to the workplace, and if not to the workplace, then to other sources of psychological stimulus.
How do we thrive in this world with the same set of skills that guided us through the world as it once was?
We need a new way of working to sit alongside what has guided us this far. This is why Acceptance and Commitment Coaching (ACC) is so powerful. It’s about developing ways of taking more effective action in life by learning to respond more skilfully to thoughts and emotions, to help enhance performance in the workplace.
ACC can provide us with the skills needed. Psychological Flexibility which forms the basis of this work, means that you can take steps to handle challenges that arise with greater equanimity and still focus on making your life meaningful.
Here’s what Acceptance and Commitment Coaching can do for you:
- Gain clarity of issues
- Understand what is important /what motivates you
- Explore and understand what is holding you back
- Raise greater awareness of who you are, your strengths, capabilities and potential
- Help you define goals and identify your next steps
“Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACTraining) aims to improve performance and reduce stress for workers by supporting the development of psychological flexibility at the jobsite. Psychological flexibility is the ability to be in the current moment, mindfully aware of thoughts and emotions, and committed to valued goals. ACTraining is based on the six interactive processes highlighted in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy — contacting the present moment, acceptance, defusion, perspective taking, values clarification, and committed action — and has been efficacious in many occupational environments.”*

What other clients are saying
Mallika supported me in exploring various career pathways ahead and solidifying my professional goals. During the sessions she introduced several tools helping me to identify my values, get further clarity, as well as make a tangible action plan leading to achieving those goals. I feel well equipped to face my next chapter on the career journey and looking forward to checking in on my progress in the next couple of months.
I embarked on a journey of mindfulness coaching with Mallika at the beginning of 2020. I turned to her to coach me individually because I intuitively knew that I need to increase my focus and resilience ahead of a big professional project, which was facing me and my company. I expected that our sessions will encourage me to be more in the present moment and reduce stress related to work and the pandemic. Very fast our coaching conversations helped me to increase resilience and to step back and consider alternative perspectives rather than simply react to the events. I experienced so much uncertainty, I felt anxious, fearful and frustrated many times during last year. Mallika helped me acknowledge these situations and made me bring myself back to a centred calm. I could see more clearly what it is I have control over, and what it is I don’t. Finally, Mallika’s sessions became a part of my life routine and very effectively showed me how to proceed with more compassion towards myself and others.
With a tool box of techniques, Mallika supported me to develop inner resources that helped me navigate through difficult and stressful situations with more ease, comfort and grace. I became more aware of my own emotions and the sessions gave me more choice in how to deal with them. It simply wouldn’t be possible for me to survive and thrive without this experience. It exceeded my expectations on all fronts.

I was first introduced to Mindfulness and The Conscious Zone at a Financial Women’s Association of Singapore lunchtime event in 2018. Over the course of two hours within small breakout teams, we were introduced to Acceptance Commitment Therapy concepts, how to plot out our “toward” and “away” moves, and how to be more aware of our emotions and actions that bring us joy, contentment, confidence and inspiration. At the time, I was looking to develop self-awareness in myself, especially in the workplace, as well as outside the workplace through better personal health management. Since then, I’ve leveraged Mallika for individual coaching sessions, team building exercises and recommended her to other colleagues and friends for corporate coaching. We still continue to meet today every 2-3 months to check in. Last year I onboarded someone into my team who is based in Hong Kong. During a business trip, we spent a half day with Mallika to help identify and map our strengths as individuals and as a team. Since we were still getting to know each other, it was an extremely helpful exercise as we were able to gain valuable insights into each other that had we not done this may have led to misunderstandings and conflict. Our team is stronger than ever and we continue to deploy the techniques we learned in the session to bring out the best in our performance. Mallika has been very flexible in designing the programming we’ve partnered on, so I would encourage you to contact her and she will customize something special to cater to your needs.

Mallika is a wonderful mentor into the world of mindfulness. Across a number of sessions, she taught me practical techniques and exercises that I’ve been able to use long after our meetings. A highly recommended experience with an excellent guide.

I was curious to find out about mindfulness and as the dots connected, I was introduced to Mallika Kripalani. Her insights stemming from years of experience in coaching children, teens and corporates have made each session an invaluable one. Notwithstanding her professionalism, patience and empathy, her expertise and gift of bestowing one with a mindfulness-oriented mindset add so much value and depth to each day, especially in a corporate setting. Simply priceless!

The tools and methods shown in the workshop are easy to follow and practice. I can relate to the examples they gave and happy to try these techniques through my daily life. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who is willing to experience mindfulness.

The strategies that Mallika has taught me for dealing with and diffusing anxiety have been truly life changing. Her straight-forward, logical techniques have helped me to learn to shift my way of thinking when anxious thoughts now arise, so that they no longer have the power to take hold and send me into a debilitating spiral. In the end it wasn’t about eliminating the anxiety (which has never worked before anyway), but about learning strategies to function better with it.
