About Anu

Author of the book Time and Life Management, Co-founder and Chairperson of Pragati Leadership, Executive Director of Pragati Foundation, Ashoka Fellow and working on projects related to Women's Health, Capacity Building of NGOs and Creating partnerships between Corporates and NGOs.

Best known for ‘making things happen’ through her patience and perseverance. – that is Anu for you. Anu is the National President (India) for Soroptimist International, an organization dedicated to the growth and empowerment of Women worldwide. Anu loves sketching and painting and when not training and coaching, she loves being close to nature, gardening, reading, and spending time with her pet dog Zorba.

Anu started coaching because she found that classroom facilitation was often too generic to bring about significant individual change. In her experience, people respond better when you are working with their challenges and aspirations and this is what the coaching process provides.

What makes Anu stand out as a coach particularly is her ability to challenge assumptions of the client as well as her ability to build practices that enable her clients to sustain those transformative changes long after the coaching assignment is over.
