EXPERTISE & CREDENTIALS
Manish is warm, helpful, curious, and loves to have long conversations over coffee.
He believes in learning by inviting discomfort and targets to learn something new every year.
This quest has taken him to learn paragliding and skiing, studying and sharing his insights on happiness and human behaviour in marital relationships, writing books on making language learning fun (English Bites! My ‘Fullproof’ English Learning Formula, Penguin Books, 2012 and Let’s Talk in English, Penguin Books, 2015), co-founding a community club (“Coffee & Conversations”) for knowledge sharing, and driving cars and campervans on roads less travelled.
In 2018 he has started learning Badminton, Hindustani Classical music – Vocal, Ornithology, and Photography.
Manish started coaching after having mentored a number of people both from within and outside the organisation where he worked. The organisation then gave him an opportunity to get certified as an executive coach. This kick-started his journey as a coach while he continued my mentoring work.
He believes that coaching helped him to become a better mentor as he could see the benefit of applying some coaching principles in mentoring as well. According to him, coaching helped him to expand his mindset, skillset, as well as toolset.
Manish’s coaching style
Manish follows the GROW model with Appreciative Inquiry as guiding principle.
His philosophy of coaching is to help the coachee become aware of the need to change. Once this is achieved, the ‘will’ to change and the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of change is easy.
This philosophy can be encapsulated in the following quote: “I am not successful as a coach if the coachee feels he or she has a smart coach; I am successful when the coachee believes that he/she has an infinite potential to achieve absolutely anything they set their mind and heart to.”
What makes Manish stand out as a coach: Clients find him to be authentic, genuinely invested in their success, approachable, warm and affectionate.
