Meet Alicia.

Alicia has big objectives for her life, and for the world.

Alicia said she was in a job that “didn’t give her the opportunities she wanted”…

Ideally, she wants a job where her contributions and effort, are appreciated.

Alicia wants to be challenged mentally.

She wants to feel like she is growing personally.

She wants to expand her skill-base and make the world a better place.

Alicia’s challenge was that she didn’t know how to realize her objectives, she wasn’t, yet, self-aware; meaning, she didn’t know or understand her potential, or how her personality dictated and influenced all of her results.

Unfortunately, due to her lack of thoughtful sophistication/self-awareness, Alicia didn’t know or understand her personal success triggers enough to be strategic with them. Inevitably, this lack of awareness, negatively influenced her potential and success.

To make matters even more challenging, Alicia felt like her boss was holding her down, not giving her the professional attention she needed, and denying her opportunities she sensed she could crush.

In the absence of encouraging validation about her effectiveness, Alicia’s confidence weaned, and her self-doubt grew. She longed for a realistic sense of her potential, because apart from her degree, Alicia didn’t know ‘what’ she had to leverage.

All she really knew was that she wanted to be more successful in life.

She saw only two options available to her: ‘suck it up’ where she was and hope things got better, or, find a new job.

Neither option, truly energized her.

Alicia wanted to feel inspired. She wanted personal transformation.

She knew that if she didn’t do ‘something’ to have the life she wanted, it was unlikely things would ever be different or better!

Alicia decided to take definitive action.

She became Thoughtfully Sophisticated:

With the aid of a psychometric profile of her personality, she increased her self-awareness!

Hi, I’m Coach Sheeba, Your Success Catalyst.

For the past 2 decades, as an accredited accomplished Executive Life Coach, and President of Forward Focus Inc., my focus has been on success through self-awareness, thoughtful sophistication. My clientele has primarily been men,CEO's and Senior Executives.

My flagship corporate client, Suncor Energy, identified as amongst the most powerful companies in the world, have publicly acknowledged the impact our work together has had for the five executives I worked with, as well as for the company and its shareholders:

"My coach [Sheeba] is the reason why I am doing what I’m doing now."
Steve Williams, CEO of the year in Canada, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Suncor Energy, under his leadership, achieved record production,
throughput and record returns for its investors

However, after my own career devasting #metoo story, I retreated from that world. Finally, after wasted years of self-deprecation and failed attempts at justice, I founded MaP Forward Inc..Now, my focus,is on empowering women with the same proven unique formulaic process used with the most powerful CEO in Canada. The formula is the focus of my first book, “Sheeba’s Secret”, available in bookstores across N.A.

My second,soon-to-be globally released, book, “Without Compromise”, is a career guide for women in this #metoo era.

With a single-minded focus on manifesting success through greater self-awareness/thoughtful sophistication, I see entrepreneurial opportunities everywhere! I am in search of more like-minded women, with a heart for God, eager to make the world a better place!

My commitment, persistence and determination earned me a position on the Prime Minister of Canada’s Task Force for Women Entrepreneurs, and as a delegate on government sponsored Trade Summits. I have been featured and profiled on the cover of Biz Magazine as well as in regional, national, and international media, and am an international keynote speaker. As a former Rotary Exchange Student, I am bilingual in Canada’s two official languages.

My family comes from India. I was born in Canada and am a first generation Canadian.

Specialties: Certified and Trained by ICF institutions, nominated as one of the Top 40 Under 40 in Canada, 2008, for my business success, results and vision.

My journey to ‘here’ has never been, nor is it yet, linear.

Like you, perhaps, I have had a demotivating and frustrating path with little support; I confess to guessing and bluffing my way through life till the age of 35!

All I had going for me was my hope, faith and some thoughtful sophistication.

I longed for ‘know-how’ but didn’t know ‘how-to’ find it! Can you relate?

I got a University degree but had no vision. I quit most of my jobs, got let go, or contracts expired. I was with my husband for 13 years, had two kids, and eventually divorced him. Clearly, I had no idea of ‘how’ to make the ‘right’ choices, or ‘what’ to choose. Sigh!

The subject of self-awareness began to consume me. I threw myself deep into understanding the role self-awareness plays in overall success and received my professional designation along the way.

No doubt, had I been more thoughtfully sophisticated/self-aware, or had access to a proven and reliable map forward, I would have caused less hurt and been less frustrated with my own life: my choices would have been more aligned with my personality, and thereby more strategic, results focused and fulfilling.

So now, after having my career derailed by a powerful man in a powerful company, MaP Forward exists for women who want to take charge of their own success.

We are a not-for-profit, offering every woman who wants it, an exclusive, highly successful map forward, and process for thoughtful sophistication, increased self-awareness!



How does the psychometric report help?

The report identifies the strength of each of the 7 personality traits that make up who we are, and who we are not. It helps visually, via graphs, understand what aspects of your personality to be leveraging more intentionally, in order to realize better results.

The traits are:

  • Assertiveness
  • Sociability
  • Pace
  • Detail Orientation
  • Behavioural Adaptability
  • Emotiveness
  • Originality of Thinking

Let’s take the personality trait of ‘Sociability' as an example. Talkativeness is a behaviour. Sociable people like to talk.

Sometimes someone may be quite talkative when they are discussing an area of expertise or interest but when it comes to just carrying on a conversation, they are not really interested in just talking. When we understand how personalities are hardwired, we better manage them, and set ourselves up to win. A naturally Sociable person is naturally talkative, will contribute openly, offer feedback and be more participative. Someone who is subject matter expert is only talkative when discussing the subject they enjoy.

This type of analysis measures your natural orientation objectively and enables you to seek the people, places and things that will help you succeed, as you stop trying to be someone you are not!

How does the plan work?
You complete an online survey applying a proven, validated scientific approach to personal development that provides concrete measurable results. It’s called psychometric analysis, basically an x-ray into your being. You receive a visual, scientifically validated set of graphs depicting who you were designed to be, your map to success.
How does this help me?
The program helps anyone who intuitively knows that personal understanding is key to being their best. The whole process is about YOU and for you. You deserve to have what you have the courage to really want, sooner rather than later. Our program objectively identifies your strengths, blind spots and values. With this kind of education you are empowered and able to make confident choices to find the work, partners and life that enables you to feel more fulfilled, satisfied and have the greatest impact in this world.
What’s wrong with just winging it?
Depends on what your objectives are. If you value efficiency like I do, you know that with more ‘know how’ you do things better in the most expedient way for the best results. We can just figure it out as we go, but it is a riskier strategy that doesn’t promote confidence. Without confidence, how dare we put together a results-focused strategy? How long would it take you to figure it out? What if you never do? What if your natural motivators never really get engaged because you aren’t honest with yourself about what you really want? What if the ‘winging it’ approach never allows you to feel inspired by your own life? If you want to be your best and produce your best results, then your natural motivators and strengths must be engaged to the maximum. Sometimes when we are not clear of our needs, we may engage the traits others like the most about us; however they may not be our natural motivators or strengths. Just because we are good at something, doesn’t mean we are passionate about it or that it gives us true satisfaction.
What does the program help to identify?
We help you identify the two personality traits that, if you focus on, in conjunction with your personal values, enable you to achieve your best results!

Though I don’t know you yet, the fact that you are checking our course out, and thoughtfully reflecting on how this could be transformational for you, tells me deep down, you know.

Of course, you don’t need this course. You are just smart enough to know that none of us can move forward to the kind of success we are destined for, on our own.
