Reflexion: Transforming Individuals, Teams And Organizations

Urvashi Malhotra & Suva Chattopadhyay,Co-FoundersReflexion is a boutique organization offering allround Leadership Development for organizations, instilling a leadership language that is empowering and enabling. Reflexion began when 2 colleagues Urvashi Malhotra and Suva Chattopadhyay met and realized that they were equally passionate about coaching. Working from inside an organization would not have fully quelled their desire to make a difference to the coaching space in India. This realization brought them together and laid the foundation for Reflexion.

For gathering knowledge about Reflexion's robust development, sink in the conversation between the CoFounders Urvashi Malhotra and Suva Chattopadhyay with CEO Insights.

Most people in corporations assume that being given the chance to work with a coach is a positive thing. Can you explain the benefits of executive coaching? Also, briefly describe Reflexion’s approach.
We would like to challenge your assumption that coaching is viewed as a recognition of talent. Often clients, who have been selected for coaching, come into the first coaching conversation with the question “Why me?” A lot depends on how the value of coaching is communicated to the client by the organization.

Coaching has many benefits:
• It is one on one process, and therefore more client-centric. Challenges can be openly discussed in a safe space and the focus in on development in areas that matter to them
• It helps in positive behavioral change that translates into business results
• Transition coaching supports leaders who are new to their roles, to make a great begining
• Coaching enables deeper insight and analysis for leaders who are managing complexity

In our coaching work, we ensure that the client, stakeholder, and the coach articulate the gaols that the coaching partnership aims for, right at the outset. We undersatnd, how things are presently and what the envisioned state would look like. We measure the progress and do the necessary course correction to get closer to the objective that we started with.

What innovative technologies are you deploying with your coaching methodologies?
We are not sure whether to call these innovative technologies or adherence to coaching philosophy!

Reflexion follows the theme of Awareness, Alignment, and Action (the model from CFT) for personal transformation through coaching. We usually begin coaching with an assessment tool such as Hogan, EQi 2.0., Engage Coach or 360-degree feedback. To ensure the best outcomes, our coaching also involves line managers while setting the goals and objectives for the coaching. Alignment occurs when
coachees own the areas that they want to work on and choose to engage with the coach. During the Action Phase, the transformation of the leader is visible to others who work with them.

We are the first Coaching organization to ensure that all our coaches are supervised by qualified supervisors from the UK.

How do you ensure that you maintain the quality and authenticity of content during the coaching process? What are the various assessment processes followed by Reflexion?
We ensure quality authenticity of the coaching process through coaching supervision and peer review.

In the large assignments, when we work with other coaches, we ensure that all the coaches are PCC certified and have a mature and balanced approach to coaching and open to coaching supervision.
