I am glad that you have started Lumen to provide Executive/Leadership Coaching using much acclaimed Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching methods.
I thought it appropriate to recollect my experiences of you as a coach in my Leadership roles.
I was a part of your team around 2004 onwards, and we had an exceedingly challenging job of managing highly demanding, knowledgeable Global customers on one hand and a large high-performance team on the other. As the Head of our business group, while you efficiently managed and grew the Delivery Operations and Fiscals, the more important part for us was to drive the trust factor with our clientele and Teams.
You were exceptional on coaching us on this front – helping the second line leaders on understanding the nuances of becoming trusted advisors, managing customer expectations and developing the ability to look around the corners and facing uncertainties and adversities. This helped us to scale the business exponentially with stupendous growth and highly motivated teams.
I am proud to have seen most of our team members growing to executive leadership roles in global companies, all made possible through your exceptional coaching abilities.
Thanks Gowri, for all your coaching In my career
I had the good opportunity to take an interactive coaching session from Gowri, recently. I had requested her for a session, as I needed help in clearing my thoughts & prioritising my future plans.
The discussion was done in an engaging, thoughtful and thought provoking manner and I actually opened up to her about things that I had not consciously thought about ! At the end of the session, I felt light hearted, clear in mind about what I would like to really do. I am very very impressed and would love to have few more thoughtful sessions like these.
Thank you so much Gowri, I did mention the above to you after our session, but wanted to place my heartfelt message and gratitude to you here.
You are an excellent coach and I hope there would be many like me, who will benefit from you !
