We at Mansion House believe that coaching, as a process, aligns with our values of building long-term relationships based on trust and transparency and of finding and developing tomorrow’s talent. It is an invaluable tool which can be used in many scenarios.
And so with this in mind, we have aligned with Heeral Gudka to provide coaching services to our candidates and clients. From help with making career decisions to creating leadership development programmes for our clients, enabling them to identify and grow prospective leaders.
Heeral is our partner in developing the Mansion House vision.
Heeral moved into coaching in the summer of 2013 after an immensely enjoyable and varied actuarial career spanning 2 decades. She now runs a successful coaching business, working with individuals at a wide variety of stages of their professional life.
During her career within insurance Heeral worked for one of the largest global consultancies, 2 prestigious London Market insurers and the world’s largest run-off specialist at the time – living in London and Bermuda. Building relationships has always been Heeral’s strong point, and most recently she worked as the main contact between her previous employer’s actuarial department and the 13 branch offices spread across Europe.
Heeral’s move into career coaching was driven by the sincere conviction that she can contribute more to improving the work environment as a coach than as an actuary. Since beginning coaching Heeral has worked with people from all over the world and all manner of backgrounds.
What sets Heeral apart from other coaches is that she has an in-depth knowledge of the insurance industry which lends her the credibility to work with leaders in the business.
Heeral’s coaching style is straight-forward and free of jargon, she builds trust with her clients and they rely on her to give honest and compassionate feedback. Heeral helps her clients deal with the stresses of the work environment, helps identify opportunities and overcome challenges. She observes and identifies patterns of behaviour and thought-process so that the client can decide which are helpful and which are hindering progress.
