“What makes Suraj a good coach is his ability to connect with people at a deeper level (mix of great IQ and EQ), his own rich experience in leadership and management and his ability to listen and then share his candid inputs – he is a very good listener. Why a leader should choose Suraj for a coaching engagement is because he has the ability to help leaders with identifying underlying improvement/development needs on hand and then strengths on the other hand. As a result, one can work on both. While working with Suraj, it is as if I am driving my own development and he is standing outside the playing area, quietly observing and giving feedback. For senior leaders in the age group of 45-60, Suraj is at the right age to empathize with their challenges..”

He went to great lengths to make the session extremely relevant and meaningful for us. Another aspect, which is worth mentioning, is the complete and honest commitment to the assignment where tailor-made content was made available overnight.
