What CapitaPartners can do for you.


Our success over many years stems from our belief that leaders evolve by doing and then reflecting and refining. Executive Coaching simply accelerates that cycle and deepens learning. We specialize in helping executives achieve their full potential in cross-border, cross-cultural assignments. We take an evidence-based approach that links coaching goals directly to business outcomes. 

Our six-month executive coaching engagements help leaders become more effective, grounded, and authentic in their professional and personal lives. Often, this leads to an inspired sense of purpose and a commitment to ongoing change.  We also offer executive coaching for leaders transitioning into new or larger roles to help them establish early wins, build stakeholder relationships, and close any skills gaps.

Developing 'GLOBAL MINDSET' in executives and teams

Today's leaders must grapple with the global and the local, with tenacity and agility. CapitaPartners offers multiple services designed to enhance the ability to engage stakeholders across borders. We provide one-on-one executive coaching for leaders who need to influence cross-cultural teams, as well as group workshops that teach teams how to grow their capacity to think and behave as global leaders.

Purpose-driven Careers

Remarkable careers don’t happen by accident. In today’s world, executives self-author their lives and careers from a strong sense of purpose. We help executives clarify their value proposition and goals so that they can express their purpose and passion through their career choices. Through workshops like Executive Springboard or individualized executive coaching, clients emerge more engaged, focused, and resilient.

Talent consulting & assessment

Our experience in assessing hundreds of executives in cross-border and cross-cultural roles has shaped our understanding of what it takes to make an impact. CapitaPartners helps CEOs recruit, assess, and select the right people for key global roles, international assignments, and Board positions, based on the organization’s strategy going forward. Our evidence-based assessment approach takes the guesswork out of hiring and succession decisions, and ensures that new leaders are ready to face whatever gets thrown at them.
