Coaching and mentoring are globally accepted as development techniques based on one-to-one discussions between coach/mentor and mentee. Prime objective of coaching/mentoring is to make significant transitions in thinking and working style of individuals to impact their performance positively. Coaching/mentoring is expected to deliver following:
Help mentee re-wire mind to be strategic in thought process and approach
Help mentee refocus on what is relevant and truly important

In India, executive coaching/mentoring is quite a new concept. While initiation on the subject is seen in some businesses, seriousness and commitment to the purpose is still at nascent stage. We truly believe that scenario will change gradually as more and more people/organizations realize the benefits of coaching/ mentoring.
Mentoring/Coaching means taking pose to analyze:
Your own thought process
Allocation of your most important resource – Time
Your behavior with people and situations
Your assumptions, believes and perceptions
Accordingly, Coaching/Mentoring demands:
Commitment to change
Openness and ability to accept different perspective/point of view
Determination, discipline, Patience and Perseverance
Coaches have to be behavioral scientists with capability to understand people and situation.They must have ability to ask relevant questions to help mentees stretch their thought process without being threatened. Their heart must beat to see their mentees going beyond their own initial believes and create long term sustainable values.
Accordingly, we have carefully chosen a pool of coaches/mentors with substantial relevant experience and/or relevant qualifications/certifications to spark change in your organization. Religion of these coaches/mentors is to facilitate change at people level to make individuals and organizations better.
Coaching can be approached:
Individually in one-to-one format, or
We can also equip internal leadership team to create coaching/mentoring culture in the organization and coach/mentor juniors for sustainable long term growth.
