Before taking coaching sessions, I was confused about my career choices. I had so many doubts about career choices but after meeting him, I got many of my doubts clear. While going through the coaching sessions I felt positive and confident. Coaching process was good. The time management for sessions was also very convenient. He has good listening skills, and he can understand our situation very well and provides good sources of information. I Recommend all to take coaching sessions from Hemant.

I find it very positive when I speak to Hemant and his views on life are very motivating. He is such a good listener that sometimes just sharing the areas of concern with him reduces the stress for me.
Hemant, you have been a real mentor who never restrict himself when it comes to giving advice on challenges on both professional and personal front. I have learnt many things about myself through your analysis. I feel great during & after these sessions.

Sangeeta (name changed on request)
Manager, Capgemini, Delhi

My coaching sessions have been real eye openers for me. The self-introspection really helped me to understand myself better and also look at things from other people’s perspective. Neurological model was great to find out who exactly I am
Made peace with my past. I never knew it was so important. But with these sessions I came to know its importance and after doing that there was a sense of satisfaction, relief. It was like closing the long open chapter of past.
Started accepting the people the way they are. It’s very difficult though but yes due to these sessions at least I could figure this out and slowly working on it.
Have started handling my anger. Hemant suggested to use visual reminders such as images and wallpapers which helped me a lot. This has given me another perspective which I was not able to look at when I used to get angry.
My goals are now much clearer to me.
Most importantly, I have started living my life instead of focusing on others.
Superb. Simply superb.

Rachana (name changed on request)
Project Leader, IT Company, Pune

After having to downsize my business that I ran for 10 years I was feeling very low and confused. I had concluded that I wasn’t very keen to continue with the same business and since I wasn’t clear about any other business I could do I began job hunting. But my job search wasn’t whole hearted and I guess that was the reason why I didn’t see too much success also with it. It was around this time that I felt I needed someone who could help me unravel the career conundrum I was in.
Luckily through Linkedin I was able to find Hemant’s profile. I got to know more about his services through his website & I got in touch with him on the phone immediately. I remember I spoke to 2 other coaches also at around the same time. But what got me to go with Hemant was the system suggested by him which I found practical and also his assuring words during the first conversation that sealed it for me. I was clear that I wanted to engage Hemant to help me with kick-starting my career.
At this point although I had read about coaching & what it is & isn’t I hadn’t actually experienced it at all. Luckily Hemant was thorough on that front & educated me about it. After getting to know about my story Hemant helped me by engaging some tools and having detailed discussions about the outcomes from it. This exercise helped me understand about myself better in terms of my strengths, skills & so on.
Thus started the exploration about what I could do next from those outcomes. At around mid-point of the engagement I knew what I could do next. The rest of the engagement was exploring on that & getting to action on it.
Hemant has a talking to a friend like approach as his coaching style. He would also always call on dot at the agreed time which suited me best as I would also be ready by then. He was also appreciative & encouraging about the efforts being taken by me. This would help me stay the course & act on the action steps. Also a couple of times when I missed on completing my action steps Hemant diligently pointed those out too getting me to promise revised dates by when I would complete them. This approach helped me as well.
Today I would confidently recommend Hemant’s coaching to anyone who is feeling stuck & confused about their career.

Happy to let you know that recently during the annual conference I was recognized 5 times for my achievements at work. This wouldn’t have been possible without Hemant’s guidance. A few months back, I got in touch with Hemant at a time when I had entered a new domain in my career and I was like a headless chicken trying to do all sort if things.

Hemant proposed a path after finding out my strengths & weaknesses. It was a strategic approach hence I found out what I was doing wrong and what is it that I need to concentrate upon. He helped me channelize my thinking in understanding what I am good at than wasting time on what I am not good at. Thanks to the weekly connect I was able to assess my actions throughout the week and discuss with Hemant. He always grounded me and helped me to focus on my goals. Hemant has a good sense of humor which lightens the conversation and makes it interesting.

Overall I have become a better individual in my career and personal life. All thanks to Hemant in helping me reinvent my career.

IT Project Leader, FIS Global

I have been doing a Full time job from more than 10 years. Since a year, I have been into new training field. I wanted to have clarity about what could I do in future. I also wanted myself to be more organized, but it had not been happening. I thought I must have somebody, some coach who will guide me and make me more accountable.

After my coaching with Hemant, within 2-3 weeks, I started working on my Beliefs as well as my habits. It worked very good for me. I found that the root cause was my limiting belief that “I am not good enough”, “Not accepting me fully”. This thought was like a breakthrough for me. I started waking up early and became more organized.

Definitely I gained more clarity and more confidence.

On scale of 10, I would give 9 marks on all the parameters to Hemant as a Coach. He is a very good listener. I learnt few Unique tools like “Benefits basket”, 3 steps, 6 daily questions to ask and many metaphors which were useful for my journey.

Surely I recommend Hemant. 100%, Because of the result I got from coaching. I came to know the root cause of issue and I am more clear on my goals now.

Hemant, thanks a lot for being my Coach. I highly recommend.

Hi Hemant, Thank you for conducting coaching session for Gharla.com employees and real estate agents. This session would definitely help each participant to excel in their professional and personal life. The participants can achieve their goals step by step by applying those secrets of success which you have taught.

Vrushali Adhawade
Director, GHARLA.com

Hemant Deshpande had been my life Coach from 26th April 2016 for 8 sessions of one hour duration each week.I did not know what a life coach is until my nephew suggested that i engage a life coach as I was having issues with my son. I did not know how that was going to help and was skeptical, when i received a call from Hemant.

I must tell you that the coaching sessions had a really soothing effect on me, Hemant is a very effective communicator. He drives the point slowly and tactfully and makes you understand that your point of view is not the only correct one. He holds a mirror in front of you and makes you see clearly. He doesnt judge you at all.

He has done a great job of being my life coach. Thank you Hemant. All my best wishes to you..”
