With a new coach you never really know how it’s going to turn out. There are so many professionals now involved in coaching, with such variety, it is difficult to find your way to a great coach. I was lucky in finding Smriti; someone with such flair for this work it was an absolute delight! Smriti understands issues so fast and is also able to hear tension and frustration intuitively. It is so rare to have a coaching conversation which is at the same time so in-depth, makes you feel so heard and so clearly understood. She is terrific at creating awareness. Her intuition and her language coupled with her direct communication as a way of inducing questions into the conversation is as good as anything I have experienced in the last 10 years or more with a coach. I would recommend her unequivocally to anyone as a coach in any business context.
