I was quite stressed and at my lowest in confidence at work. Coaching with Sumit helped me introspect to identify what I want to improve or change, giving me clarity and helped me formulate a better approach to identify my next challenge.
It also helped me identify my strengths and what I did well and hence re-instated my confidence in myself.
Sumit is very knowledgable in managing people, communications at work and dealing with emotions. He has excellent listening skills, and helped me understand my thoughts sometimes better than myself.
With specific topics like working with red people or attachment vs. commitment, I felt enlightened by what Sumit shared. Also he made sure we role played, which helped me see more clearly and get concrete takeaways from our sessions.
I am really THANKFUL to Sumit for all these sessions.

“What I liked best about coaching with Sumit was that we weren’t looking only at the “work” part, but also how it fitted into my life, my personality, preferences and core values in general.
I found out that I have important strengths that I can use and help others with, that I always took for granted or wasn’t aware of.
Sumit asked very interesting questions on quite broad and important topics, which helped me split goals into different timeframes, and making sure that the long ones are “vague and free enough”, while the shorter ones are very clear with a push to action.
I would recommend coaching with Sumit, as it will let you take a step back, look at the bigger picture and important goals and values in your life, and see how that ties in with your work. “

“I met Sumit during a leadership training he was giving and liked how he explained things, so I gave coaching with him a try.
As a result, I felt more confident and gained clarity on my values and strengths/weaknesses.
I liked Sumit’s way of questioning to properly understand what was bothering me. Sometimes it was not clear to me what the problem really was. With his questions, it was possible to find the right problem to attack.
I started a stretch project, wrote down my promises to myself, and started journaling as a result. This helped me get back on track myself when I felt lost. We also role-played different scenarios, which was very helpful.
I totally recommend coaching with Sumit. Having somebody who challenges your point of view and helps you get some clarity is key if you want to reach the high bar you set for yourself.“

“I was a bit skeptical when starting coaching with Sumit, as I believed in common sense, but decided to try.
At first, I had short-term motivation boosts per session, later I found I could sometimes talk myself into one. This helped later, as I had a rough break-up, and was able to get myself together rather quickly.
Sumit helped me make peace with a conflict I had at work. Sumit asked bigger picture questions, forcing me to think more long-term than I was used to.
I felt I could trust Sumit, and freely speak about my emotions and the choices I have. I believe Sumit is a great coach to help define, set a plan, and stay fueled in an attempt to reach your Big Goal.“

“I didn’t know what to expect and if coaching was for me. But the whole process felt like having a supportive friend who’s taking extra time to help me understand what makes me happy and motivated.
Which was exactly what I needed at that point in my life. I became more confident, more social, started making more friends, and getting recognition for my work.
While the process felt casual, it was also very professional and scientific, which I appreciated the most. Sumit would research the topic at hand, get experts’ opinions, see what others in my position did, and share all that with me. I liked the learnings from those conversations the most.
Being more motivated and less frustrated paved the way for a lot of growth in my life and career.
I would recommend coaching with Sumit to anyone who feels that they can use a new perspective on what they expect from their life and career.“

“After one year of coaching with Sumit, I feel that I’m able to better identify not only my priorities and my professional goals but also my personal objectives.
Throughout his coaching, I got to realise more of my potential, believe in my own strengths, and define the path to a successful outcome.
During our sessions, Sumit has always been calm, pragmatic, kind, and a gifted listener.
I would highly recommend Sumit to anyone looking for professional coaching. “
