I was seeking an interview coach to help me land job offers and chose Mahesh as he is a Product Management exec in Silicon Valley, not just a career transition coach. Mahesh helped me regain my confidence. Not only was Mahesh's approach refreshingly straightforward and candid, but also multifaceted. I thought he would start like most coaches do—the mock interview. Actually, he first helped me work through the self-induced roadblocks that were preventing me from landing the right next job. After I got out of my own way, I received two job offers. Mahesh is now working with me to bolster executive presence and skills to work with the Board and the C-Suite.

Mahesh is the best coach I could've ever asked for. There are a lot of things to look for in a coach: are they personable? Do they provide value to me? Do they help me clarify my purpose and how it maps to my job? And there is the most important question: do they get results for me in my career? The answer to all of the above is unequivocally yes with Mahesh. He will work with you from the ground up to help you realize your full potential and realization in your career.

I have known Mahesh for 2 years and have completed 2 annual cycles of career guidance. The beginning year was the most crucial and sensitive time of my life where I felt helpless at the crossroads of a career path. By the time I met him, I had taken 3 years of a maternal break, and by end of the 3rd year, I had zero confidence in getting back to the career world. He helped me unveil my potential and influenced me to never ever undervalue or underrate myself. During my initial sessions, he would deep dive to learn my personality and helped me identify and discover my soft skills and how I could use and implement them into the world of management.
Not only did he help me find a job but guided me on the techniques of efficient job search. He taught me how to strategically demonstrate my skills and broaden my impact. He is honest and effective in what he suggests. His recommendations are not generic but specific to the problem and situation.

The Customer NPS and Employee satisfaction scores got much better because of working with him.
