I am a Business, Executive and Leadership coach, trainer and facilitator with over 25 years of experience in developing individuals and fostering transformational change within their professional environments. I work with a diverse range of global clients and organisations in the private, public and the NGO sectors, drawing deeply from my core belief that people who unlock their potential can be more purposeful, profitable and impactful.

My methodology and approach is underpinned by the following:
• creating a safe space to open up and explore issues and challenges
• high levels of respect and confidentiality, co-creating the relationship with trust and rapport the driving forces in the coaching journey
• exploring and co-developing goals and outcomes that are specific to clients needs, I work with the clients agenda. The client is the expert of the content I am the expert in the process.
• mapping of competencies to create insights and awareness around behaviour, experience, ability/aptitude, knowledge and skills
• providing open and honest feedback and balancing both challenge and support for my clients
• my approach comes from a belief that clients do not need advice, but with reflection and powerful questioning they will be able to intentionally make positive steps towards goals and growth. I have the questions and clients have the answers

Some of my strengths includes:
• People centered - I coach the person and not the problem
• Passionate about an innovative thinker - making time for introspection and space to think, brings the opportunity for creativity and boundless perspective

What my clients say:
“Thank you Pranesh, even though we journeyed for years together. This one coaching session earlier in 2020, changed my life. It changed how I looked at my own ability to lead. It gave me the boldness to cast a vision and direction for my team. It help me see my own world in a new way. Wow, what happened in a 45 minute session of questions and then another set of questions, changed everything for me. Thank you coach Pranesh.”
