Hello, I'm Devika Das


Coaching with me goes beyond achieving professional goals; it’s about finding personal fulfillment and making a meaningful impact on your career.

My Journey

Being a leadership coach is more than a job; it’s a result of a lifelong commitment to understanding and nurturing impactful leadership journeys.

Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated by those who lead, inspire, and mobilize others. The hero’s journey, filled with challenges and triumphs, has always intrigued me. This childhood interest has shaped my path to becoming a leadership coach. Understanding the psychology of successful leaders and uncovering the secrets of their transformative journeys has been my driving force.

This passion has evolved into a commitment to empower others on their leadership quests. Guiding individuals through challenges, helping them discover their unique paths, and unleashing their potential aligns with the inspiration drawn from those captivating leaders of my youth.



I graduated from INSEAD’s Executive Masters in Change (Clinical and Organizational Psychology), exploring interpersonal dynamics, leadership within groups, and organizational change. Currently, I serve as a dedicated learning coach for DEI and various leadership programs at INSEAD. With almost two decades of coaching and training experience, including a decade in Mainland China, I’ve collaborated closely with senior executives from Fortune 1000 companies across Asia-Pacific and beyond.

I’m affiliated with the Forbes Coaches Council, Harvard Business Review Advisory Council, and the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations, staying committed to staying at the forefront of leadership insights. In addition to my professional journey, I authored the Reflective Edge Series—a resource designed to elevate self-awareness for leaders like you.

The Personal Devika

I am a coach dedicated to empowering women to become leaders by helping them build inner confidence and self-belief. I coached women to embrace their leadership abilities for years before seeking external validation. 
Early in my life, my identity extended to my husband’s before I began working and discovering my path. Over decades of coaching experience, I became fascinated by studying human behaviour, leadership and magnetism.
As a woman trying to establish myself professionally, I faced many challenges due to societal expectations that prioritized marriage and family over career. But I persevered through an unwavering self-belief.
Throughout my career across India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Indonesia, China and Hong Kong, I encountered gender or racial biases as a brown woman. However, I was determined to set an example by living authentically and not letting biases define me. My journey involved overcoming numerous self-doubts to find confidence in my abilities finally.
I am resilient, driven by an inner strength, and deeply passionate about empowering others through coaching. Self-reflection allowed me to forge my path despite facing personal and societal obstacles. This persistence and self-belief ultimately allowed me to build a thriving coaching career.

Medeli Electronics Co. Ltd.

One of Devika’s writing on Forbes about female leadership grasped my attention so I decided to reach out to her, which resulted in the beginning of a fruitful coach-mentee relationship.

During the year we worked together, She spent time listening to my childhood experience and walked me through how the most subtle experience shaped me to become who I am today. She is a great listener and she asks the right questions to help me gain a deeper understanding of myself. She has a gift to develop connection with people and it is with this connection that I managed to trust her in a short time. This trust is essential to our relationship as she could only give me meaningful guidance only if I allowed her into my world. I have become more attuned to my emotions, allowing me to be more centered as the chair of the business. I am very pleased with the result of the work we put in together. I am sure she would be a great coach to anyone who is interested in the journey of self discovery and awareness.

I worked with Devika for over 12 sessions on her Feminine Leadership and Presence coaching. I have come out with recognizing aspects of myself as a leader that were unacknowledged. I am not more strategically assert my position as a leader. Through the coaching journey with Devika, I was able to reconnect with my professional purpose, learned to ‘let go’, and improve my communication style to be more empowered and confident. All the tips, ideas, and guidance provided by Devika have resonated with me in such a way that I will carry them forward as I continue to grow professionally. Devika has a great ability to understand people in a very short time and build trust…which allowed us to have open and candid coaching sessions. Her vast experience working with women and corporate professionals really added to helping me develop in a professional setting as well as in my personal life.

Devika has been my coach for a while. Her unique approach and methodology make the coaching sessions intense, deep, and highly efficient. It allows you to confront yourself and explore beyond your imagination. Devika is specialized in dealing with complex personal topics with complete professionalism and discretion.

CEO, Hai Kei Plating

Devika has helped me a lot, not only on how to be more confident on the business side but also on spiritually. She has helped me be socially accepting of myself and others. She pays attention to details, giving me space to talk, present my problems, and I come back having a different lens through which I look at the same issue. There were lots of warmth, inspiration, along with directions of guidance, while I was encouraged to solve my problem in my way. As it is my own battle, I must fight it myself, while she was on my side to help me remove some of the distractions, and boost my confidence.

Devika provides support but challenges to ensure that you stretch yourself to deliver to your full capability. She has strong business acumen and understands the importance of clear, concise communication in getting your message across. She coached me as part of an INSEAD Executive Programme.
