What people are saying about our Coaches

Nikhil Damle

“I wanted to improve my interpersonal skills so that these would help me on business front to understand the customer requirements in a better way. Its been hardly 4 months that I know Nikhil now, and I could see the significant impact he has made on me through his teachings, personal/group discussions to explore any problematic situation, and his empathetic and non-judgemental approach towards each participant of my training group. With Nikhil’s help, I could discover my subconscious unresourceful thinking/behaviour patterns which I am working to improve upon.”

- Swati Pawar
Nancy Kapoor

“Nancy created a space of safety from our first conversation which I really loved and it enabled me to be myself and show up authentically for the conversations. Gentle nudging and questioning helped to develop depth in reflections.
I loved the progression of the conversation. The entire conversation felt comfortable and safe. Even jotting down my reflections on the sheet, making a commitment to self and additionally defining the action steps was helpful for me !!”

- SrishtiSimple Education Foundation
Simmi Gulati

“Applying Simmi’s deep understanding and experience as an NLP practitioner has helped me mapping my personality and motives. The first coaching session was already a groundbreaking one: I use the same metaphors which I defined then ever since whenever I face crossroads and have a dilemma. In just these past two years she has witnessed and supported me in three major transitions in my private and business life. In the hardest moments the images I discovered in my subconscious with Simi’s help give me reassuring support that I am following the right direction.”

- Dóri Szvath
Saahil Sood

“Saahil is an extraordinary coach with qualities of deep listening and curiosity. I appreciate how he's fully present during our coaching conversations and it made me want to share from my authentic voice. He helped me to visualize very vividly and to embody a quality that I wanted more of. The entire visualization exercise was so powerful and vivid that I can still see it in my mind today. Thank you for challenging me, stretching me and pushing me outside my comfort zone.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the proposed timeline of a coaching engagement?

We offer a minimum of 6 sessions and recommend 12 sessions for a coaching engagement. Each session happens at a frequency of once every week or once every two weeks. Each session can be either 60 minutes or 90 minutes each. The frequency and time for each session is finalized by the organization at the start of the engagement. The exact time-slot and date is blocked between the coach and coachee right before sessions begin.

How will a coach add value without having any background/experience in the work that our organization does?

The support offered by a coach is different from that of a mentor. A mentor has more experience and is more knowledgeable than us at what we do and from that space of superiority can offer us advice. A coach on the other hand offers perspective by sharing feedback on how they think we are showing up and by asking us questions whose answers help us create the results that we want. Their job is not to offer advice but to offer us perspective that gives us a well rounded view of the challenge we are dealing with. Each of us is blinded by the lens of our belief which may make it hard for us to have clarity and balanced perspective on what we need to do to create results. This is where a coach comes in. They do not need to have technical knowledge or experience in what we do as they operate in the domain of behaviour change which is agnostic to the technicalities of our role.

How should I decide which employees from my Org would benefit from coaching?

We believe that coaching will be best suited to:

  • Founders &/or C Level suite executives who are leading the organization.
  • High potential senior managers who you would like to build into a strong next rung of leadership.

Once decided, we strongly recommend that you share an open invitation with these managers (as opposed to a mandate), asking them to opt-in based on their own aspirations, needs, and bandwidth. This allows participants to align their own motivations with what the course has to offer and create the maximum value-add for themselves.

What happens if a coachee does not turn up or is late to a coaching session/call?

Managing commitments effectively is an important aspect of leadership and we believe that the coaching engagement is a space to practice the behaviours we would like to inculcate as leaders. 

In accordance with this, once a coaching engagement has been finalized between Co.labX & the organization, the coachee’s involved in the program would be required to sign a coaching agreement. Post that the coach and the coachee would agree to a time slot that works aligned to the frequency and duration decided by their organization and the coach will share calendar invites for the same. Calendar invites for all sessions for the entire engagement will be shared at this time before the sessions begin. 

Once the invites are sent, calls can be rescheduled within the week provided that it is done 48 hours before the call begins. If a coachee reschedules any later than 48 hours before the call or if they do not turn up to the call, the organization will still be billed for the same. If a coachee is late for a call, the call will still end as is scheduled and the organization would be charged for the same.

I am an employee who would like to sign up for coaching. How do I proceed?

In many cases, companies have a formal PD policy for employees and a budget to cover the same. In other cases, there might not be a formal policy in place but an openness & desire to support employees with their growth & learning.

Either way, the first step for you would be to check with your manager or HR to see if this is an option.

If yes, we would be happy to support you to make the ask and get a reimbursement. You can write to us (email below) with your request and we will get back on next steps.

What if I have more questions?

Shoot us an email at [email protected] and we will get back to you within 48 hours.
