Leadership Consultant, Executive Coach and Facilitator
Sylvana Caloni partners with mid-level executives on high potential tracks or senior executives in leadership roles. Often they have been promoted because of their expertise and subject knowledge. Yet their expertise does not make them compelling leaders of people. It can lead to blind spots and narrow perspectives that hinder how they engage with multiple stakeholders. Used to “knowing it all” and “being right,” such leaders can be frustrated by the different communication and working styles of their diverse team members. The leaders may also find it difficult to let go of managing all the details and devolving responsibility. Or as star performers they may find it difficult to ask for help and engage their team members to find new solutions. Sylvana works with her clients to make the invisible visible; to develop self knowledge and to become aware of how their presence, behaviours and attitudes impact others. They become more flexible leaders, able to listen more deeply and to have conversations that create greater understanding and collaboration. Their teams work more successfully and generate the desired results. Prior to becoming a coach, Sylvana was an Executive Vice President at a global investment bank. She analyzed and invested in companies globally, across sectors and industries. Sylvana was born in Sydney of Italian parents and lives in London. She values diversity and inclusion and was previously President of Women in Banking and Finance. As a Trustee of a local charity she supports a youth center to provide services to disadvantaged children.
