A lot of people have the potential to become great leaders and bring about unprecedented progress. However, many of these gifted individuals will never have the opportunity to pursue this incredible path. This is especially true for minorities who are often subjected to an unfair system. Cognizant of this, one outstanding woman is using her platform and influence to help promote diversity and inclusivity within the workplace: Harpreet Kaur.
The inspiring individual is a renowned trailblazer in the tech industry. Throughout her career of more than two decades, she has led several product teams and large initiatives, including Microsoft’s Windows Server and Azure products. Having extensive experience in leadership roles has allowed her to mentor many professionals at mid and senior level.
Over the years, Harpreet realized just how crucial intuitive coaching is after seeing her mentees and team members’ incredible professional growth. As such, she decided to hone her skills even further and took up Leadership Coachings at Dale Carnegie, International Coach Federation, and Jay Shetty. Finally feeling well-equipped, the visionary then created Why Blend In, an innovative venture that seeks to guide aspiring professionals and leaders to become the best in their field.
Aside from her unwavering commitment to excellence, the esteemed mentor also possesses a unique philosophy, giving her an edge over others. As she insightfully explained, “We are only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. The keys to success and productivity are already in your pocket, and you just need someone to show you the key and encourage you to open the door. That’s where I come in, to help you with my career coaching and leadership coaching frameworks.”
On top of her unique perspective and undeniable expertise, what clients love the most about Harpreet is her extraordinary empathy. As a first-generation immigrant from India, she also experienced firsthand just how difficult it is to thrive in the highly competitive corporate scene. Using her experiences, she holds a deeper understanding of her mentees’ plights, enabling them to build a stronger connection.
All of these things have helped the thought leader establish a stellar reputation as a career coach. As a testament to her ability to let people shine, many of her clients have already successfully landed their dream jobs and found professional success at big organizations such as Amazon, Meta/ Facebook, SmartSheet, T-Mobile, Microsoft, and Davita, as well as other large and medium enterprises.
Harpreet Kaur is indeed a remarkable professional who has dedicated herself to a worthy cause. “In these tough times where a lot of tech companies are laying off, investing in yourself is the sure way to land great opportunities when the hiring picks up again in the next few months. These life skills are a great way to advance in your current organization and get the leadership role you have always wanted,” she confidently declared.
Moving forward, the exceptional mentor intends to keep helping more aspiring professionals achieve their career goals. In addition, she remains steadfast in her vision of diversifying the corporate scene and making it more inclusive. As such, she plans to continue empowering her fellow minorities to keep going and to boldly pursue leadership roles.
