Neena Kamal tells us that, “For over two decades, I’ve immersed myself in the dynamic domains of human resources, leadership development, and executive coaching. My professional journey has been enriched while working with esteemed organisations such as Veritas, Oracle, Aquapharm Chemicals, and more where I’ve delivered diverse projects of Organisational and Employee Development.

I’ve also been facilitating personal and professional growth and partnering with leaders, managers through personalised coaching and developmental programs have become second nature to me.

Notable among them are Pubmatic, Godrej, ICICI Prudential, Wartsila, and WNS. I’ve authored and published a book titled “Mirrored Monologues,” a powerful tool for self- exploration and personal growth.

I leverage cutting-edge instructional design methods and a rich toolkit that includes case studies and personal profiling tools along with principles of Positive Psychology and Solutions Focused approach in my coaching.”

Before you became the business titan you are today, enlighten us about the thrilling adventures of your pre-business life.

I am from Satara, a small town in Maharashtra, India. I studied in a vernacular medium. I came to Pune to do my graduation and continued to live there till 2020 (with a short stay in Bengaluru for a couple of years). I was brought up with a very progressive and independent mindset. My parents taught me the importance of discipline and earnest lifestyle. I started working when I was 19. I have experimented a lot in my career, with a 20 plus years stint in the HR field.

Having a strong support system is essential for your well-being. We would love to know who your biggest supporter is. Share with us and let’s celebrate the amazing people in our lives who make a positive impact.

My biggest champion is my husband. He has always supported me in all my endeavours. If I tell him I want to become the head of state, he won’t raise an eyebrow, rather he will ask me .. ok so do you have a plan? I feel blessed for him in my life. Now I have one more champion and that is my 15 year old daughter. She teaches me to stand up for myself. She teaches me that I deserve the best! My other support is my amazing friends. I always say when I have to count my blessings I just count my friends! My girl friends like Aarthi and Meghana have my back all the time. My larger friend gang makes me believe in myself. They have taught me to love myself.

As a young woman entrepreneur, what changes do you hope to see in the world and what opportunities are you seeking?

I wish for a world where we realise that no one owes us anything. Whatever is our colour, background, our choices, no one really no one owes us anything. When we accept it, we become an adult. Despite this we will meet hundreds of people in hundreds of moments who will go out of their way to help us! From family to strangers, people surprise us with their kindness. When we feel real gratitude for it, we will become happy! 

I wish to help individuals become happier with their realities, professional and personal. Start with acceptance and acknowledgement. Learn to show kindness to your own self. My coaching helps you to achieve your professional or personal goals! Become closer to your happy self!

Women now stand shoulder-to-shoulder with men in the workplace, breaking through glass ceilings to reach the top. What are your thoughts on women’s leadership today?

I have been blessed with strong women role models all my life. Let it be my Mum, my aunts, my mother in law, my sisters, my bosses, and most importantly my friends! I have seen them juggling their careers, their hobbies and their lives. They are the best people I know! At work, I feel women bring humane warmth! That is our strength. We don’t want to become MEN. We don’t have to copy them. Women are stronger emotionally, more accepting, more focused if we allow ourselves! I feel amazing strength and power in the growing women leadership! 

At the same time I am a bit weary about using women card for concessions. We need to create kind and fair workplaces where gender cards are not needed for simple understanding.
