CASE STUDY

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 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 the meetings because he did not want to be seen as an arrogant guy. He wanted to remain respectful at all times. As per initial assessment, he was lacking in assertiveness. His Coaching engagement involved about 6 coaching sessions.

 

Through coaching Rahul understood that being humble does not 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 to build his 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 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 have been able to handle situations and  people and in a far better manner than before.


It has been an absolute joy to work with Yoshita. It is very important for a coach and a coachee to gel well and Yoshita & I got attuned to each other in a jiffy. She helped me acknowledge my areas of development in no time and guided me towards addressing them. My coaching sessions coincidentally happened at a time of a significant change in my professional career and Yoshita’s experience was very handy during such a time. Her empathy and patience are her assets which immensely helped me in my journey toward self-development. Sessions with Yoshita helped me recognise that there were certain 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 have changed for the better and have been able to handle situations and my approach to people and professional situations in a far better manner than before. 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."

"I became a more impactful leader and made substantial career progress in 9 months. Within 2 months, with Aashwini'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."

Harish Sharma

General Manager – Dell Technologies

"Coaching with Aashwini 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. 
Aashwini’s 360 Degree support and commitment to his coachee’s success is his key differentiator. I would recommend Aashwini for his deep understanding of human behaviour, his immense exposure to the corporate world, and his years of spiritual and psychological practices."

"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 !! "
