Typically sponsored by your company, this coaching service is designed to help you become a more effective leader with respect to influencing your team and stakeholders, driving business results, developing self-awareness and growing in the competencies reflected by successful executives in your organization.
Designed for successful professionals in transition who are seeking a new role in a new company or exploring a different career track altogether, this coaching service provides a deeper understanding of your strengths and values (and challenges that may have led to career/business misalignments) as well as practical ideas and actions to ensure success in your next journey.
For high-achieving professionals who are leading a company or exploring a full-time (or side) venture, this coaching service provides you a structured sounding board and accountability partnership to accomplish your business goals while finally removing self-limiting habits and obstacles.
Given that interpersonal influence, executive presence and gravitas in communication are at the heart of leadership success in any business setting or community, this coaching service helps you uncover the styles (and beliefs) holding you back from making your greatest impact, and practice developing your signature voice in a safe, private way before going live.
Why is it finally time to hire a coach?
Whether you are a corporate leader with greater career aspirations, an entrepreneur with a visionary idea, or an experienced professional seeking your next ideal job, it’s true that you can achieve your goals without a coach.
But having a coach by your side can help you evaluate the choices in front of you when selecting the right goals for your strengths and potential.
A coach can help you isolate the skills and methods most needed to ensure you achieve your goals so you practice the right behaviors rather than waste time and energy on the areas that don’t accelerate your progress.
Lastly, a coach can help you deal with any internal conflicts or outward struggles that we all face when working toward success in our careers, our corporate organizations and our businesses.
Nihar unlocks personal insights. Specifically, by leveraging Nihar as a coach, I was able to: (a) understand important subtleties of my personality type, (b) outline my ideal role based on those subtleties, & (c) define the succinct value I bring to an organization. Going forward, these insights allow me to evaluate new opportunities with much greater clarity. Overall, Nihar is an outstanding coach and I highly recommend him.
It's been a truly refreshing and re-orienting experience working with Nihar. His work experience gives him a solid grounding in the relevant issues at play in today's workplace. He has faced the same challenges. His ear for emotional nuance helps to uncover those niggling issues you probably need to deal with sooner than later, issues that extend outside the workplace. His insights are startlingly simple, yet profound and hard to forget. And he's just fun to work with. I walked in thinking the measure of a coach's performance was simple: it's what you see on your scoreboard. And although my stats have improved dramatically during our work together, what I've been learning is how to enjoy the game again, to get back into my favorite role and just rock it. I heartily recommend him to anyone who wants to do that.
The executive coaching that I have received from Nihar Chhaya over the course of the last year has been indispensable. Nihar has helped me recognize both strengths and weaknesses and has been able to help me leverage the strengths and guide me in working on some of the weaknesses to further my influence in my organization. He has been helpful in reducing some of the stress from the day to day demands of my job, and given me some good coaching tips that help me understand what is triggering the stress and ways to recognize and improve the situation. He is a great sounding board and has allowed me to work through scenarios and ideas with him to get to a better outcome. Through his coaching I have seen a positive change in the interaction with both my direct reports as well as my direct supervisor and my working relationships have shown noticeable improvement. I have also received good feedback from my supervisor on the positive effects of the coaching received by Nihar. I appreciate all of the time and effort that Nihar has put into our sessions and would recommend Nihar as a coach to anyone that is looking to grow either personally or in their career.
Working with Nihar provided the additional boost of confidence needed as I moved from a first-level manager with a small team to a middle-level manager with a large team and increased interactions with top-level management. After only a few sessions, I felt like Nihar truly understood my strengths and pinpointed the areas I needed to improve in. Through thoughtful discussion and coaching, Nihar was able to suggest ways to work through my self-doubt and how to combat uncomfortable situations. These suggestions have led to quick improvement and I am not only more confident in my role but my supervisor, top-level managers and many of my peers have noticed my progress. Nihar embodies everything I was looking for in an executive coach – someone who listens, makes you feel comfortable, understands complex business situations and is truly committed to your personal and professional development.
Not Sure If A Coach Can Help?
If you aren’t sure whether coaching can help you yet, that’s perfectly natural. We recommend looking for two critical determinants to a successful coaching partnership: credibility and chemistry.
- Is your coach credible and experienced with regard to business issues and leadership coaching methods?
- Do you feel safe, heard and supported in your coaching relationship and sense a compatibility in rapport and interaction?
Through our initial consultation, you’ll get a sense for both credibility and chemistry as it relates to your needs and your organization’s goals. And if for any reason it’s difficult to feel confident in either of them, then there is nothing lost in your search for the right coach.
But to be sure, good coaching can dramatically help you in your endeavors and to overcome obstacles. For some examples of others who found coaching helpful, check out some testimonials.
