Help me to gain back my confidence

A couple of poor career transitions and managers left me stagnated at work. It was a stressful period where I started doubting my own capabilities. Feeling low on confidence, I was finding it hard to convert a suitable opportunity. Gowri’s coaching sessions helped me understand my strengths and passion areas. Her vast experience and exposure to the industry gave her the ability to relate with some of the organizational and cultural dynamics I was facing and advise me accordingly. I was able to gain back my confidence in a couple of sessions and convert an exciting role that opened up within my company.

Provided Executive/Leadership Coaching

I am glad that you have started Lumen to provide Executive/Leadership Coaching using much acclaimed Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered and other Coaching methods. 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 am very very impressed

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.

Helped me to organise my thoughts

I have been coached by Gowri over a period of two months when I was going through a period of uncertainty in my career. Coaching by Gowri helped me to organise my thoughts and plan for my career transition, which included a change of place and a search for a new role. It also helped me clearly understand my strengths and articulate my priorities succinctly, helping me to take action with them in focus. This was a stressful period and coaching from Gowri helped me deal with the practical difficulties as well as emotional challenges that came with it. Gowri’s experience and expertise as a coach gives her the maturity and empathy that helped me identify my challenges and concerns, and deal with them comprehensively.

Strongly recommend

I had the opportunity to interact closely with Gowri recently and was really benefited by her outcome-focussed coaching / mentoring model. She always had the knack of asking the right probing questions to make me understand my strengths and capitalize on the same, thus being highly effective and instrumental on the outcome we were targeting, but at the same time maintaining a personal touch that made all the interactions enjoyable. I strongly recommend Gowri as a coach for anyone facing a career hurdle or looking to enhance their capabilities / prospects.

Helped me to understand my strengths and weaknesses

I have been engaging with Gowri over the past 18 months to help me understand my strengths and weaknesses as I prepare for transitioning into a senior role. Her experience as a former C level professional in the corporate world, combined with her coaching skills, helped me understand how to position myself better for my next role. In our sessions, she helped me relook at specific situations from shoes of a senior professional and I was able to see that talent alone was insufficient for leadership. I am now relooking at my modus operandi within the organisation and seeking sponsorship.

Gowri’s Session gave me a Clarity over Career & Leadership Objectives

“It was a pleasure working with Gowri over the course of 5 sessions. She was instrumental in creating my own mental framework over key questions regarding career, work life balance and leadership. She is herself quite experienced in the corporate world and brings that experience to help through anecdotes and personal experiences. She helps think through the topic with probing questions and also keeps the conversation moving towards the agenda. Her sessions have greatly helped me in having greater clarity over my career and leadership objectives.”
