The insights led me to change my expectations from work, my communication style, and my management style. Never have I had an investment pay off as much as the investment of my time with Ravi.
I am more objective with myself. Prior to him, a habit of mine was to create a distorted image of myself and make my development more difficult. Ravi provided me with a way of thinking that has ultimately helped me be more objective. He also helped me understand what it means to be present and how it is a bridge to some of my specific professional goals.
Our conversations were indispensable and will serve me well as I continue my leadership journey.
This was my first consideration before I reached out to Ravi. As I thought more about it I realized that just like anything else, a career can benefit by further polishing, reflecting and clarifying thinking. We hardly ever get a chance to take a fresh look at what’s working and what’s not, and how to shake things up to make a big change.
I feel great that I went on this coaching journey with Ravi. I am happy to say that my mind was opened in so many ways. I look forward to taking my new insights and leveraging them in doing even more meaningful and smart work!
Since working with Ravi, I have a much higher level of confidence in my abilities as a manager, the various crises inherent in managing a software delivery team aren’t so scary any more, and, oh yeah, I also got a promotion.
I’d highly recommend Ravi for people who are looking to grow and transcend their previous selves.
Would I recommend Ravi to my friends? Totally!
Ravi was instrumental in helping me make one of the boldest decisions of my life. He offers really helpful insights and perspectives that I find especially credible because he sets the example himself. It has been my good fortune to have him as my coach.
A good friend who is also a software company executive referred me to Ravi. Prior to meeting him, I had thought of coaching in a very tactical way – perhaps to deal with specific situations, or to take advantage of specific opportunities.
Working with Ravi has been much more beneficial – he focuses on my inner strength, and skillfully brings in mindfulness to bear on difficult situations. I developed a new element of my leadership. It’s clear he is dedicated to his clients’ success, and offers his time and support regardless of whether you’re still working with him – in a way, he has become a trusted friend. Thanks Ravi!
I reached out to Ravi initially to help me advance in my career and get promoted. Not only did I get promoted, but I also learned valuable lessons and principles on how to be my own coach and how to coach others.
We learned some deep truths that not only improved my work life, but all aspects of my life as well. We got results, but most importantly, I also became a much better partner, daughter, sister, leader, friend, and professional.
Thank you, Ravi!
Working with Ravi was a dramatic help in my ability to understand and navigate the discussions that surround the business of building software. After about a decade as a software engineer, I was interested in moving into engineering management. Ravi was able to help with concrete communication and presentation skills, but the more abstract empathy and vision needed for effective leadership were the true rewards of our work together.
We worked together for two years, and I’m confident that the exploration we did during that time will serve me well for many years to come.
This has helped me calm my anxiety, sleep better, feel more grounded and confident in how I show up at work as well as in my personal life. He is a great listener and guides you in arriving at solutions for yourself by working through different possible perspectives for a situation.
He is genuinely interested in your success and has always been gracious with his time and support in making himself available even outside of his formal coaching hours via email or a quick call if required.
I highly recommend working with Ravi if you are not looking for “quick fix” solutions and are willing be open-minded in exploring how to get more out of your life.
Since I started working with Ravi, I’ve had the most productive time in my career so far, while working the fewest number of hours I’ve ever worked.
The most amazing thing about it is that it didn’t happen through a few tricks or a series of habits he taught me. Instead, it came from guided introspection which led to a better understanding of myself, my job, what my job means to me, and how/why I make decisions the way I do.
Working with Ravi provided the best broadening experience of my career. Professionally I’m able to handle more complex situations with ease, and feel less stress overall.
It’s so easy to get caught up in a competitive work culture that we forget what really matters at the end of the day. Working with Ravi helped me find that focus, and continue to hone that discipline even when I slip up. It’s this focus that I found refreshing in Ravi’s coaching.
I think it’s no coincidence that since I’ve worked with Ravi, I am happier with where I am in life than ever before. Not only do I love my current career path and have been promoted multiple times in a short time frame, but I also have done it with a fraction of the stress I experienced in my previous role.
I’m grateful to realize early on in my career that success does not have to come at the expense of health and other joys in life.
I had the pleasure of working with Ravi for about 6 months. His interest in getting you to that next level, knows no bounds. He genuinely cares about his clients’ progress. Ravi, structures a meaningful program for you based on your specific needs, unlike some programs that have a cookie-cutter approach.
We’re never truly done with becoming the best versions of ourselves professionally and personally. Working with Ravi awakens you to the possibility that you could be operating at a higher and happier level. At the very least, you’ll walk away with some strong points of view on what makes you happy professionally. I’d wager, you’ll walk away with much more though.
Ravi is an excellent coach. I had a chance to work with him when Iwas transitioning to take a leadership role at GE. His coaching helped me stay focused and get to the results I wanted in my first 90 days. I’d recommend any leader intransition to consider working with Ravi as their executive coach.
Ravi is an insightful coach whose background as an accomplished technology professional and multi-faceted leader enables him to add value for his clients in a multitude of ways.
He brings tremendous energy and unconventional wisdom to conversations, allowing one to reach one’s true potential. An exceptional guide who is not only structured but also cares for people.
I hired Ravi to help me grow as a professional and also coach me as I transitioned into a leadership role. Ravi has been an incredible coach to me. He has helped me learn so much about myself and I am pleased to say that not only have I become a better professional, thanks to him, I have learned to lead a more fulfilling life.
