I can easily say working with coach Ajay Ramakrishnan has considerably changed my life for the better. The introductory session with Ajay itself was eye-opening into the world of coaching and how having a coach can affect a person. No wonder, all the high performers in the world have coaches or they become high performers because they have coaches. With his deep understanding of human psychology, vast experience in leadership roles in the army, and varied forms of coaching, Ajay possesses a unique set of skills that has helped me to uncover some of my limiting beliefs, inspired me to be my best self and pushed me when I got complacent. He provided some simple and practical tools and tips in each session that I could apply immediately and proved to be very effective. Moreover, Ajay has a passion to see his clients succeed which is evident in the way he shows up for each session and is what makes him a great coach! I am immensely grateful to have had Ajay Ramakrishnan as my coach and mentor! I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to go to the next level in their life or get out of a rut.Sanjay Ratnakar
A few months back when I was contemplating change in my way of thinking and controlling my life I decided to take up coaching with Mr Ajay Ramakrishnan. I am very happy to tell that Mr Ajay has been a sort of messiah like figure who has helped me understand the pitfalls and drawbacks in my thought process and how to work around them. His keen observation skills and intricate analysis during sessions helped me understand arcane principles of my psyche. His willingness to be available and pitch in during any time of the day gave me added comfort and confidence in him and his methods . My coaching journey has been enlightening and hope to continue working with Mr Ajay in the future.Mahesh Balakrishnan
Ajay is an extremely professional, dedicated and focused individual. He had helped me in achieving all the goals that I had set out for myself as part of the coaching engagement. His gentle demeanor, deep insight, military background and extensive experience of over three decades, all leveraged to create an impressive coaching engagement that achieves results. I would highly recommend him for any coaching engagements.Virendra Gulia
I am Dr. Rudresh Jarecha, and I work as a senior medical director at Parexel Informatics, SBU of Parexel International. I had a chance to hear about Colonel Ajay from a mutual friend. As I grew in my organization, I moved from India to the USA, realized that I needed to evolve from an APAC leader to the global as well. I contacted Colonel Ajay. From the first foundation session till now, his unique ways of connecting with me at multiple levels are profound. It's adding tremendous value at every step and given me thought-provoking insights. This process helped me become a better and effective leader every day, both in my personal life and work life. I strongly recommend Colonel Ajay for the executive team's leadership journey.Dr. Rudresh Jarecha
From April 2016 to Dec 2018 , I had the opportunity to engage with Ajay and benefit from his Executive coaching, which I signed up for in my personal capacity. I was part of the delivery team of an MNC Bank as a Vice President for the India Delivery Center . The focussed engagement helped me strengthen my leadership skills around -Strategic thinking. -Influencing skills. -partnership & collaboration. -instant decision making in moments of crisis. -role model leadership. I was able to draw upon Ajay's rich leadership experience of more than 2 decades in the armed forces and subsequent corporate world experience to further enhance my leadership skills to manage teams as large as 1400 employees. I had signed up for this development engagement in my personal capacity & this was one of the enablers in my overall skill development and also contributed to career progression.Roop Kumar Ramnani

Dear Coach Ajay, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me out when I was going through a rough patch in my life. My vision was all shaken, my forward path was all unclear. I was suffering from lack of confidence and didnt know how to take even one step forward. Thank you for helping me find my purpose in life, you are the best coach ever. Thanks for showing me the ropes to handle critical challenges without getting bogged down under pressure. Your patience and perseverance helped me to move ahead. The strongest motivators are not monetary rewards or benefits but appreciation and recognition. You motivated me to believe in myself and reterating time and again that I am unique and nothing is wrong with me. I continue to find benefits from your coaching. Thank you for teaching me to be ME in life. Words are not enough to show my thankfulness for helping me. I would recommend all my friends and family Coach Ajay Ramakrishnan for being the best. He is focused, appreciative , motivator and a great listener. His in-depth knowledge of human psychology is amazing. Thanks again. Regards Rajshree Dayal HR head (Vice President) NMSEZ Pvt Ltd.
