As a lifelong learner of the disciplines of neuroscience and anthropology she uses her coaching competencies to bring about a strong collaboration within team members of diverse strengths to collectively deliver value incrementally. Her way of working is going to the Gemba before making any presumptions and recommendations for change. This has resulted in her successfully implementing change for adoption and use, impacting and improving metrics across the board for the business, people, processes, and technology involved.
She practices empowering individuals to self-organize into teams via facilitating and coaching. She has created spaces of trust for conflict resolution, open dialog and discussions leading to healthy collaborations and alignment of values.
Her expertise in current-state and gap-analysis across value streams and business process re-engineering is a huge asset whether it be for a value-added deliverables or major transformation.
Minaxi has an innate ability to perform comfortably in ambiguity, unpredictability, and experimental modes, which may entail much higher risk and need flexibility in approach with high situational awareness.
