When was the last time you asked yourself to go for a walk?
Sound hokey? Well, it just might be the very thing you need. We all share a basic need to be seen and heard; we all want to know we matter. Sometimes that means showing up for ourselves with the same time and attention we give to others.
Tune in to today’s episode with dear friend Ranj Bawa, owner and president of Renewed Balance, to hear how inviting himself to go on a walk has helped him create a year of gratitude, compassion, and presence.
Ranjit Bawa has a passion for helping others live, work, and play at their highest level. Leaders and professionals turn to “Ranj” for advice and guidance in their pursuit of extraordinary performance. For 22 years, he has been caring for and coaching people to aspire to their highest potential.
He is the Owner and President of Renewed Balance Lifestyle Coaching, a company that trains and coaches clientele in both the private and corporate realms. The values of Leadership, Teamwork and Vision provide the foundation for this approach. He has introduced and implemented leadership development, executive excellence and health programs for organizations such as Telus, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, NorthStar Ford, Rockwood Custom Homes, Old Dutch Foods, Precision Drilling, Northview Apartment REIT, Prizm Financial, TriStar Oil and Gas, Young President’s Organization, BMO Nesbitt Burns, Buchanan Barry Chartered Accountants, The Canadian Wildlife Federation, McLean and Partners and West Campus Development Trust. He and his team of coaches work with their clients in a dynamic, supportive, and caring environment and his clientele spans across North America and Europe.
As an athlete, Ranj was a varsity quarterback for the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University squads in the early 90’s and then moved into the coaching and training ranks from there. In September 2005, Ranj was chosen as one of Calgary’s “Top 40 under 40” business people for his leadership in the corporate community and his commitment to charity work. In his role as trainer and coach, he has engaged with clients in close to 30,000 hours of one-to-one interactions over the course of his career.
Over his 22 years in Calgary, Ranj has been devoted to charity. He hosted patients from the Children’s hospital and underprivileged families at every Calgary Stampeders home game from 1998 through 2009, giving the kids and their families an opportunity to enjoy the experience. In August 2005, Ranj was the Camp Leader for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer and responsible for leading a crew of 100 people at base camp, who in turn cared for 2,500 participants. He and his Renewed Balance Team currently contribute to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation charities, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, The Mustard Seed, The Ronald McDonald House and the Calgary Veteran’s Food Bank. Each holiday season in December, Ranj and his team lead a toy drive for the kids of the Alberta Children’s Hospital. This past year marked their fourteenth contribution.
Known as “Ranj” by many, he is dedicated to excellence and strives to create memorable, valuable and rewarding experiences for all those with whom he works.
