Our Story

Anjali is a Sanskrit word that means Heartfelt Offering and everything we deliver is indeed the heartfelt offering of our founder, Shahmeen Sadiq, Master Certified Coach.

Shahmeen created Anjali Leadership in 2005 after a 15-year career working her way up the leadership ladder in the Ontario Public Service.

Since then, we have had the honour of guiding hundreds of leaders in dozens of industries to develop heartfelt, effective and Wiser Leadership.

We curate the perfect team from our global base of professionals for your in-house leadership development programs.

As Anjali Leadership began to grow, Shahmeen was introduced to The Leadership CircleTM suite of leadership assessments. She was captivated by the strength of the frameworks underpinning these instruments, as well as the elegance of the instruments and the leadership and development journey they propose.

Within a year, she was fully certified not only to use the instruments, but to teach, certify and mentor other human development professionals in their use. She certified, trained and mentored hundreds of practitioners through her role as Master Trainer, which she held from 2008 until 2019.

This combination of direct client work and training/mentoring other practitioners led to the evolution of our powerful model for leadership development: The Art and Heart of Coaching. This model has as much of a focus on the development of the coach/guide, as it has on how to effectively work with clients. Leadership coaches and consultants have found it to be profoundly useful and continue to seek advanced coach training and mentoring from Shahmeen in ever-expanding numbers. 

2020 has brought huge disruption. Most people and organizations are aware that significant changes are required if we are to navigate through it all successfully. 

We believe that to do this, it is essential to cultivate exquisite Self- and System-Awareness. So in mid-March, Shahmeen invited people to gather daily to do just that. 

Pause daily and gather with a global community to get grounded and tune into your own wisdom, so you can meet the demands of your day with clarity, steadiness and choice.
