Mr. Narayan was my coach for the period of August 2015 to January 2016. He has good ability to bring out answers from client’s own mind. He asks very relevant leading questions. He can read body language of the client very well. During my coaching he relaxed me during the initial conversation and built my confidence more in the skills that I already have. He also encouraged me to look at the other angle of the matter and guided me to develop more global vision. Later on slowly we worked on developing and handling more difficult situations in professional areas. He is a very good listener. He has ability to keep the conversation focused at set targets. His presence at this time in my career is same like saffron in the sweet dish which makes dish more delicious. I am very satisfied with his coaching.

Narayanan is one of the best coaches I have ever met and I have gained so much from his coaching – more clarity on who I am and who I am to be both in life and career development. I am impressed by his presence all the time with me as opens a huge arena to explore truth and possibilities in life in great depth and how I could achieve them. I should say he has superb skills in listening and questioning. He is always able to hear the meaning and intention behind the meaning and intention and I would always wonder how he could make it. Coupled with his seemingly gentle but actually powerful questioning he is always able to inspire me finding what is at core and build up the energy and momentum for concrete actions. All in all, he firmly holds the belief that I am always ok and resourceful. It is a wonderful journey and experience together with Narayanan and I would highly recommend him for coaching service.

When I started working with Narayanan my life was little out of control both personally and financially. I was targeting too many things at one point of time. With Narayanan's help and support I cleaned up my act and set some specific goals. As a result I am now managing my finances more effectively, feel in control of my work and home environment . Coaching with Narayanan has definitely been a worthwhile investment. Thanks Narayanan for being with me.
