Deva Param

Managing Partner - Kuala Lumpur


Deva works with leaders to identify their true goals, finding alignment with the goals of their organisation, and co-designing win-win solutions to help the leaders. He enhances the leaders’ awareness of the impact they create (often despite their intentions) and helps leaders align their behaviours to achieve the desired impact.  

Deva coaches regional business leaders, country managing directors and high potential leaders. His coaching style is solution-focused and keeps the client’s development interest in mind as well as the overall client value proposition.  

He collaborates with his clients in an effective way via reflection, discovery and action toward gradual change and optimised performance. He explores positive possibilities with his clients to overcome obstacles which are self-limiting and emotions which impede them from performing at work. 

Deva’s strength is also in his storytelling. Audiences are highly engaged by tales of his own experiences as a line manager accountable for regional and global outcomes. 

Clients find it easy to be comfortable with Deva, to trust him, and to take action accordingly.
