Executive Coaching for CXOs
The more senior a leader becomes, the more he/she struggles with high expectations, time pressure, loneliness, and a need to build new skills like managing key relationships, developing the second line, leading change, inspiring & influencing, and so on. In today’s paradigm, Leaders also need to be far more resilient and agile and conquer their inner game. That's exactly where Executive Coaching comes in.
When an organization hires an executive coach for you as a C-level Executives, Vice Presidents, or Senior Leaders, it means you are important to the organization and you excel in your functional domain. The company recognizes your value and is investing in your leadership development, to push you from Good to Great every time you perform.

Rahul (name changed) was a group Chief Strategy officer in a top Multinational Auto components group and also CEO for one of the companies. He wanted to work on his Executive Presence because being a CXO he was supposed to direct and conduct meetings at very senior levels, and ensure that the right decisions were taken in line with the organizational vision. He always perceived himself as someone who is very humble and modest and thus, had a great dislike for arrogant people. He never interfered even when his peers hijacked the agenda during meetings because he did not want to be seen as an arrogant person. He wanted to remain respectful at all times. As per the initial assessment, he lacked assertiveness. His Executive Coaching engagement involved about 6 coaching sessions.
Through executive coaching, Rahul understood that being humble doesn't mean being silent. One can be assertive at times, when it is required to put across a point. He did some public speaking engagements as a part of his role that helped him in building confidence. He started creating many opportunities in his company for public speaking so that he could be seen. He also started putting conscious effort in building one to one relationships with peers and stakeholders. Very soon he also started to have pre-meeting talks with his peers so that the agenda was clear to all. He was able to influence a major decision in his company because of his improved effective communication skills. Even his stakeholders agreed that they had seen a significant change in his level of assertiveness, confidence, and self-expression as a leader.

“I'm able to handle situations and people in a far better manner than before. It has been an absolute joy to work with Yoshita. She helped me acknowledge my areas of development in no time and guided me towards addressing them. Her empathy and patience are her assets which immensely helped me in my journey toward self-development. Sessions with her helped me recognize that strengths of mine which when in overdrive were in a way sabotaging my career growth. (It was very counterintuitive – because they were my ‘strengths’!) She helped me understand how to check my certain strengths from going into overdrive. I highly recommend Yoshita to anyone who wants to undergo professional coaching with her."

"It was truly a worthwhile engagement. I discovered blind spots which were coming in way of the effectiveness of my leadership and I was very resistant to it. Here the role played by Yoshita was superb. She made me finally come to terms with these and accept them. I would recommend Yoshita to anyone who is sincerely looking forward to self-improvement. She is an extremely capable coach, who can help others develop through her structured and professional approach, which rests on perseverance and sincerity."

As a leader struggling with conflicting thoughts, I was lucky to have found Ashwni.
Ashwni is an excellent coach and mentor. He has coached me to become a better leader and, in the process, has helped me find some invaluable insights about myself. He has made me look inwards and search for limitations that tend to slow down my journey towards becoming a better leader. In the process, I have made peace with my inner most emotions and laid the conflicts to rest.
I highly recommend Ashwni for anyone looking for his/her true meaning in life.

"It had been a great experience having Yoshita as my leadership development coach. I had a remarkable learning graph during the last 9 months. Yoshita performs very precise diagnosis and that becomes the base for building on strengths and working on improvement areas. Prior to Yoshita, I had never met a coach with whom you can share so freely as she will devise some or the other formula to make improvement efforts so easy. I feel very lucky to have a coach like her which has helped me a lot in both working and personal life. You are simply the best, Yoshita !! "

Within 2 months, with Ashwni's coaching, I made considerable headway at work, such as communicating more effectively and building trust with my stakeholders. I restructured my team and developed a razor sharp focus on my key deliverables, to increase the team productivity over the next few months. This resulted in enhanced satisfaction levels of my stakeholders. I really benefited being a part of this very effective and results focussed leadership program. I would strongly recommend this program to all leaders who are serious about their career development."

"Leaders require courage, humility and discipline to lead and drive change in their organizations and Ashwni inspires leaders to do just that. Ashwni is very skilled in using Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching for coaching and leadership development and combines such with his rich business and leadership experience. Ashwni really walks the talk with leaders as he leverages his personal leadership courage, humility and discipline to inspire leaders to do the same. Ashwni is a pleasure to work with and great with leaders who are committed to leadership!"

"Coaching with Ashwni almost felt like I was recalibrating myself! My reactions to situations and people have calmed down and I have learnt to deal with situations with a balanced mind and enthusiasm. I have learnt techniques, how to transform professional & personal relationships, achieve self-respect, self-confidence, decision making, and how to win people with authenticity, simplicity, and humility. Ashwni’s 360 Degree support and commitment to his coachee’s success is his key differentiator. I would recommend Ashwni for his deep understanding of human behaviour, his immense exposure to the corporate world, and his years of spiritual and psychological practices."
