Area of Expertise
Next Generation Leaders • Top Talent
Manish started his journey of helping people become the best version of themselves in early 2000s by mentoring a few people in his corporate role at a major multinational bank.
Once we got certified as an executive coach in 2014, it kick-started his journey as an executive coach.
What makes Manish stand out as a coach: Clients find him to be authentic, curious, and genuinely invested in their success. He is empathetic, warm, and affectionate. He is a good listener and probes well using insight-generating questions.
Manish follows the GROW model with Appreciative Inquiry as a 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 are easy.
This philosophy can be encapsulated in the following quote: “I am not successful as a coach if the coachees feel they have a smart coach; I am successful when the coachees believe that they have an infinite potential to achieve absolutely anything they set their mind and heart to.”
His genuine interest to help people become the best version of themselves.
