Coaching Legacy of Soil

Soil is a unit of Grow Talent Company Limited. It was founded in 2001 and rapidly grew to be the leader in Strategic HR Consulting. We did pioneering work in leadership development.

As a critical part of this domain, between 2001 and 2008, Grow Talent shaped a successful coaching practice creating a coaching mindset, facilitating people’s growth and making coaching part of the strategic agenda in corporate India. We did a large number of coaching interventions in global and Indian companies, provided coach training to more than 1000 leaders and delivered executive coaching services to their companies. Over 35 leaders in significant senior roles in Multinationals and large Indian Conglomerates today have undergone coaching certification with Grow Talent and they have enabled the development of hundreds of leaders in different geographies.

Building on the outstanding legacy of Grow Talent, Soil is relaunching its coaching services. Being an academic institution, an executive education and consulting organization, our focus is on research and academic rigor and the logical first step in launching the coaching offering was to create a world class education stream for coaching. In order to do this, we chose Royal Roads University, Victoria, Canada to be our strategic partner as the values and teaching principles of RRU have a distinct alignment with those of ours. We decided to bring their Executive coaching certification to India.

We are pleased to announce that the first cohort of the executive coaching certification will start on 16th October 2017 and will be facilitated by Royal Roads University faculty. In the subsequent cohorts, we will run the program with a mix of local and global faculty.

The vision is to establish a complete coaching practice that enables leaders to become coaches so that their organizations and people realize their full potential.
