Neelam Sharma is the founder of Neelam Sharma Coaching and graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Package Design, and from Georgia State University with a Masters in Human Resource Development. As a Talent Development Consultant, she works with leaders and individual contributors at all levels in organizations large and small. When an organization has a brilliant strategy but somehow can’t achieve the goals they need to enact that strategy, Neelam acts as a thought partner to help discover how to get the team to work effectively and achieve excellence. Her extensive experience in a corporate environment as a Talent Development Leader helps her to diagnose a situation and deliver a solution to the organization.
As a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Neelam works primarily with mid-to-senior-level managers on communication skills and mindfulness. She has worked extensively in manufacturing as well as tech start-ups and enjoys the contrast of environments and cultures. Besides individual coaching, Neelam is also experienced with group coaching facilitation with intact work teams or other kinds of groups.
Her work as a facilitator encompasses teaching communication skills, group retreats, off-site brainstorming meetings, assessment debriefs, and team building. Neelam can custom-design a solution that takes the culture and leadership competencies in a specific organization into consideration rather than force-fitting a solution to a unique challenge.
Neelam was born In Kenya and had lived on three continents by the age of 7. She grew up in New England, but has lived in Atlanta longer than she has anywhere else and loves it – but always has a suitcase packed for a trip somewhere fabulous, just in case.
