“Priyanka’s coaching skills were clearly on display in one memorable long term interaction with one of our clients, a leader in the prêt-à-porter and haute couture verticals in the apparel industry.

Our remit {as a soft skills training and consulting company} was to provide the organisation with an outstanding crop of next-level executives and managers who would be able to provide the speed, structure, and success that the client’s planned growth for the next financial year called for.

Priyanka decided to invest a significant chunk of the time available to us – and an even larger chunk of her energy and knowledge towards coaching each of the participants of the 18-month long ‘grow-and-show’ programme that she created for this intervention. Her innate abilities of organisation and time management along with her passion for excellence and growth were motivating qualities that inspired each and every participant of the programme. They all had positive comments about her work-ethic, character, and her obvious love for helping others achieve something better in life. She was consistently rated as ‘exceeded expectations’ on her internal reviews with the participants.

After an year of coaching, most of the participants said that they had gained new perspectives and could now view their situations from completely new angles. They reported that, in several areas of their life, personal and professional, due to her coaching, they now had a heightened sense of self-awareness. They felt her insights allowed them support while also championing the attainment of their goals. They saw her as a vital resource which gave them the courage to embrace change, and make choices that benefitted them.

My long association with Priyanka allowed me to see how she, almost effortlessly, was able to strike a unique balance of careful listening with sharing her wealth of experience and ideas. She could provide helpful insights, ideas or questions to ponder, while uncovering the crux of a particular situation. As a coach – and occasional mentor to her – I’ve observed her critically, and I’ve often appreciated her ability to mirror, and then articulate another’s thoughts – which provided a wealth of awareness. It helps immensely that she also possesses an uncanny ability to form strong interpersonal connections with her clients, making them feel like her friends and constantly have them in mind.

Priyanka is a great pick as a coach. She possesses a rare combination (and perfect academic credentials) for the right amount of psychological reinforcement with her optimistic vitality and consistent support. While her sessions are always tailored to personal aspirations, her attitude and follow-up is intuitive, caring, and thorough, but clinical enough to provide results. She always provides a responsive, ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ path by breaking down into bite-sized pieces the steps one needs to take to move forward. That helps the change(s) come faster.

I would definitely recommend her if you’re looking for solutions – and betterment – in your life.”
