I found the entire journey very energizing as unlike other coaching exercises, Pratap tends to
address the shifts required from first principles- he has helped me address this right at the
belief system level and then identify desired shifts and change in habits and behavior required.
This approach makes these shifts sustainable and durable. This in turn enables the individual to
be a more complete leader.

Senior VP Sales & Marketing Cholayil Group

In the two years starting 2010 that Pratap has been coaching me and other leaders of Cholayil, I
have become extremely self-aware which has helped shape my perspectives towards work and
life. The stakeholder centric process of coaching based on changing one’s belief systems
brought about changes in my behavior that had a direct impact on business performance. It has
been a wonderful journey for me and my colleagues whose dysfunctional behaviors have been
replaced with trust and mutual respect for one another.
