After working in the IT industry across the globe for more than 18 years, I realized my real calling to Coaching & Training. The journey started with introspection of my own life, purpose, priorities, point of views, and relationships; clarity started emerging slowly but surely. It became clear to me that real joy and fulfillment is present when I am contributing to making a positive difference to people around me including my clients. That’s when I took the courageous step to transition from corporate career to become Coach & Facilitator full time. Was it easy? No way, especially when I was the only bread winner in the family of four with a 2 yr old son and old parents. I was fortunate to find the right guide, family support and my own burning desire to make it happen. That’s when I decided to coach and guide other people who are looking for career reinvention and career transition.
I truly believe that every human being has tremendous potential and I have taken on to ignite the spark through my work of Coaching & Facilitation. It gives me immense satisfaction when I help people find purpose of their life so that they can live a life of purpose.

“I work with early to mid-stage professionals and students to help them overcome career-related challenges and achieve specific goals. The challenges include bringing clarity on potential career selection, mid-career change, overcoming challenges in current work organisation and potential to convert passion into career. I believe that each of my clients has real untapped resources (internal and external) and positive intention, through which he/she can bring in intended change by doing the best in every situation.
When I coach, I leverage my 15yrs career in financial services and audit, spent in working with MNCs like DBS Bank, Lehman Brothers, Nomura Securities and PwC. Having seen my career and those of various colleagues around me go through challenges, I strive to impart my insights in overcoming the challenges faced by my clients. I work on increasing the awareness of my clients, both at internal and external levels and finding their motivation to commit to an action plan to achieve their career goals. My core values – Empathy, Courage & Commitment – have helped me learn and improve with every client, every assignment, every coaching hour. I have coached professionals from organisations like DBS Bank, TCS and guided students from institutes like SPJIMR, NMiMS and new-age IIMs like IIM Nagpur & IIM Jammu.”
I worked earlier, in the IT Industry for over 27 years in premier IT Organizations in various Management and Leadership roles. During this time, I often felt the familiar pangs of emptiness where I felt my growth was stifled and something was missing, and I was confused and ‘stuck’. On deeper self-reflection, I looked at my strengths which were – people connect, networking, empathy, and emotional intelligence, and I realised that these were some of my key strengths which I had never considered before. So after careful evaluation, I decided to invest some time and money in my career growth and transition, and worked towards re-skilling myself in coaching, NLP, and various other modalities that established me as mid-career transformation coach and a life coach. What I initially started as an interest and hobby, later became a passion to help people in the corporate and business world to help them enhance their skills and potential, and transform the way they think and perceive the world around them. I quit my Corporate job and moved to a full-time Coaching Career that has given me great fulfilment and satisfaction over the past so many years. “YOU ARE ALWAYS MORE THAN WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE” is a favourite phrase that I carry with me, which I firmly believe in, and apply to everyone. I have been coaching several working professionals ranging from senior leaders to very very senior professionals across different industries using a structured way to systematically analyze what they are looking for, where they are currently ‘stuck’, help them to self-reflect, and finally get them into action.
I am also the Author of a successful book available on Amazon “The Unbound Transformation – for personal success and excellence”, an ICF certified Career and Performance Coach, a NLP Master Coach and Trainer (certified by ICTA – International Coach & trainers’ Association, Europe), a certified Enneagram Practitioner from ICTA. I’m also a guest lecturer at the Bombay University for one of their MA programmes.
For 25 years I worked in leadership positions with multinationals at the international level in the automobile, industrial, construction and agricultural equipment manufacturing and education sectors. I led business development teams at TEREX, CLAAS, JCB, TELCO (now TATA Motors) and TIL LIMITED. At these companies, I managed sales, marketing, after-sales service and distribution development at various levels.
At the height of my career, I found myself praying for clarity, purpose or meaning and an exciting new, worthy goal that could instil a new passion and create a possibility of fulfilment for my life. That is what brought me to coaching.
I trained in the ‘Fulfilment Model of Coaching’ by Peter J. Reding, MCC. Apart from this, I trained in two dozen leading programs over the past decade, on Life and Career-design topics such as enhancing performance, business growth strategies, digital technology, development of fulfilling relationships, and spiritual discovery.
Since then, I have coached and trained a number of business leaders, professionals and senior coaches.
Even the best of us can feel overwhelmed while tackling the demands of a rapidly ascending career, business, and personal challenges that life throws at us. As your coach, I have the vantage point of making the journey with others who have faced similar challenges, retained their will to excel, and made it. Moreover, a coach can see what is possible for you, even when you can’t. I can help you design your unique, and inspiring dream, work with you to do what it takes to realise it and support you in becoming who you must be to win at the next level of life.

SUJATHA’S TAKE ON COACHING
“It isn’t therapy, and it isn’t talking to your best friend. To me, coaching is about helping people work powerfully through issues that are bothering them, that they keep getting stuck in their own heads with. It is helping them sort out through the noise and get to what’s really important in the equation of their own life. It is all about Absolute Human Fulfilment.”
