At the point of my post career spanning 25 years plus, I was not very clear about my future goals and had the self-realization of change and achievements in the professional life.  I enrolled for 1:1 Leadership coaching with Ashish. Since then, my whole perception about looking at things has been significantly transformed.

Initially, he facilitated me to identify my fears and then transformed them into motivation and inspirational professional goals. Ashish has lots of patience, knowledge and great clarity of thoughts, which helped me to discover my new levels of self-confidence, conviction, strategic mindset and creative thinking, to achieve desired goals, in the future.

In the last one year, he has been a great coach and mentor, which has helped to further shape my core capabilities viz., Assertiveness and Leadership Communication, Emotional Intelligence, Conflict Management, Decision making and Creative Problem-Solving abilities etc. The NLP sessions have boosted my confidence in Image Management, Executive Presence and defining strategies to deal with different circumstances.

I call Ashish as Mr. Wonderful who has a magic wand to transform anyone to lead a better, happy and stress-free life. He is simply amazing and at the same time highly approachable. I would recommend Ashish to everyone who are inspired to grow.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ashish Bhattacharjee for six months. I found his profile looking for a top executive coach in India and his name came up. During those 6 months, he coached me on various topics, as per my initial request: Executive Presence, Leadership Communication, Strategy focus and Customer focus. Throughout the sessions and by using advanced techniques and top leading tests, we expended the sessions further towards personal change initiative, team feedback etc.

Ashish is a well-rounded and experienced coach, he is always positive, organized, reliable, and punctual. I found that no request is too big or too small. He gave every session – and even between the sessions – his full attention. His talent and experience can be used on multiple topics. He is the best person who can facilitate the acquisition of new knowledge and bring an enhanced awareness that is invaluable. Thank you.

This is regarding the coaching sessions I had with Mr. Ashish. He is a very positive, charismatic and professional coach with clarity of thoughts and training methods suited to one’s needs. His coaching helped me identify areas for improvement in my speech and communication. I used to wait eagerly for the next weekly sessions with him where we would discuss the personal, career-oriented subjects and lean on his experienced shoulders to get that extra push to get going. The psychometric assessment sessions I had with him were very informative and opened up many unknown areas of betterment.

I wish Ashish all the best to keep bringing life-changing opportunities for many people he gets in touch with!

The ‘Leadership Development Program’ has kindled my imagination and left me with a deeper understanding of what is required to be an effective and successful Leader. The content of program was well designed covering wide range of topics in great details.

The three main things I learnt about myself during LDP: (i) Raised my self-awareness (ii) Encouraged setting up of self-development goals, stretch goals and action points (iii) Resolve conflict in a constructive manner (Win-Win).

I want to acknowledge myself for: (i) Resilience to stress (ii) Higher emotional intelligence (iii) More strategically focused.

I want to acknowledge my Coach (Ashish) for: (i) Has deep understanding of his subject (ii) Establishes an emotional connect (iii) Good Communicator

I had gone for a coaching engagement with Ashish. He has been my friend, philosopher and guide for the past five years plus and continuing. Initially, I had life coaching with him which turned to long term Leadership coaching. I have vastly benefited from the one-on-one sessions and to be honest, it is not possible to list down the tangible and intangible benefits, in a paragraph.

Some of the notable ones are summarized as:

(a) Inculcated a growth mindset, shredded my fear and developed the mindset to meet personal challenges successfully, in the beginning of the sessions. The Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) exercises were very helpful towards this

(b) Developed out of the box thinking, influence and persuasion skills

(c) Particularly augmented the confidence and approach in day to day dealing with clients with good presentation skills. The mock sessions with Ashish proved to be invaluable

(d) Got into an introspective mood and evaluating alternatives prior making business and personal decision

He is a holistic coach; excellent motivator and I would strongly recommend him to anyone interested in achieving a great new level. Thanks Ashish, I cherish your company.

I have known Ashish for almost three years. I had hired him for Leadership Coaching for self and had gained immensely.  His passion, core knowledge and rapport is phenomenal. He has tremendous positive energy and focus, which is a rarity nowadays.

Ashish is great in inculcating new self-belief system in a person and is very good at connecting. His enthusiasm is to be seen to be believed.

– Sunil Rathi

Previously, I had spent considerable time and money in developing skills to help lead more effectively. However, traditional thinking yielded traditional results and it did not seem to be getting me where I wanted to go.

Obviously, my thinking needed to change and this is where Ashish Bhattacharjee and his breakthrough refreshing sessions were incisive, focused on simple goals with clear outcomes. The session with strong follow through helped in turning out predictable results in unpredictable times.

Ashish is an amazing bundle of energy. He ensures that most of them rub off on you as well. He is a gifted coach, and his intuitive and sensitive listening skills have helped me overcome certain personal and professional challenges. And – he can tickle some funny bones too 🙂

I can say that working with him was a highlight — a gift I’m still opening. Ashish came into my life as my Peak Performance Coach. He is so full of energy, life, and commitment for the work he did; I could not help but be fascinated by his passion. It was in the NeuroLeadership offering, where he was instrumental in opening my eyes to the power of our “mind” and the importance of developing my mental strength, including the attitude and skills that were required.

I’ve worked with trainers previously, and none of them came close to the kind of impact that Ashish had on me during our time together. Even better, I did not feel like I was talking to a coach, but to a wise and funny friend. He was completely down-to-earth, and approachable.

Ashish is an excellent listener. He can seemingly suspend time, so there’s enough for the whole story. He’s able to tap into your inner thoughts and formulate the root cause, and gives an excellent perspective and offers ways to work through difficulties. I’ve grown spiritually and healed mentally from our sessions.

His knowledge and experiences are so vast and profound that he can convert at any time on the fly from an NLP Coach to a Life Coach to an Executive coach to a Business and Entrepreneur coach, just as per your need at the moment. What amazed me was his spiritual understanding.

I am a better person today because of Ashish’s dedication and determination to push me forward even on the days when I was struggling.

I can – without reservation – recommend him to you! He’s a terrific coach and the best of all – an amazing guy!

I’m very grateful to you.

After 20 years of experience as a solution provider for telecom networks, I was on a sabbatical on lookout for other opportunities. I was on an introspection mode and wanted a sounding board to help me with the next right step. I got connected to Ashish and in the next 24 online sessions, learnt about a new me.

It was a journey of self-discovery to get to new levels of self-confidence, team leadership and communication. I developed new thinking and benefited a lot from the sessions. His sessions lead to a full holistic development which is really progressive and rewarding. Thanks Ashish, for the life changing experience!

This is regarding coaching with Ashish. First of all, I would like to thank you for laying the foundation to be a better me and help me discover self. I have surpassed my expectations and have set a new benchmark to target confidence levels of a superstar. My time management and organizing skills is on upswing and is only a matter of time till it becomes a second nature.
