As a CEO, it can be a lonely battle in your mind, so having someone who can act as a sounding board to walk you through your thought process is immensely valuable. I started the engagement with Payal by seeking answers - working with her I realized that it is asking the right questions that sometimes matters more. As a business leader, I feel this investment in myself has helped me perform at my peak potential.

"Payal has been a confidante and a Coach. Through her coaching, I have been able to identify key areas of development for the role I play. And then back it up with action. I know that a number of my team members have also benefitted from her coaching and guidance. And as a solid coach, her coaching is based on questions, which in turn leads to self-inquiry and you arrive at answers that are not prescriptive but rather self-generated."

"Fantastic engagement to say the least. Payal is very focused, and helps us identify the goals at the beginning, and works with us to navigate through each of the set goals. The whole coaching on emotional intelligence was transformational for me. The coaching sessions helped in opening up blind spots, handle and manage my emotions better, and to help me be a better professional and personality overall. Being aware of the emotions made such an impact on me. Thank you, Payal for the excellent sessions. Indeed I am feeling sad the sessions are over, but the seeds are sown -Thank you!

Thank you for the sessions. Coaching helped me focus on taking decisions on key areas of the business front, decisions that were getting postponed because I was not dealing with it. I liked the professional manner in which they were conducted – probing yet non-intrusive, challenging yet not overtly pushy, enabling and facilitative rather than prescriptive. The part I liked best was in linking my goals to personal values that I cherish the most, thereby removing conflicting stress areas
Payal Rajaratnam is a highly alert and attentive listener who cares about the process of coaching. I have recommended her as a coach to emerging and established managers who have benefited from her unique perspective and ability to unearth key challenges faced in the workplace. Payal is organised, thorough and caring - a rare combination - which allows the coachee to achieve their goals in a systematic, yet intuitive way arriving at conclusions and solutions they never dreamed they could achieve in a short span of time

The team members’ managers saw immediate results which have been sustained to date (over a period of months). Not only were the managers enthusiastic — so were the individuals being coached. They spoke ecstatically of the support provided by Payal and were eager to demonstrate their new skills

Payal Rajaratnam is one of the excellent coaches I have come across in my career. She is a trustworthy partner who has been helping the organization, in changing the mindset of the leadership team, through her powerful coaching methodology and approach. I myself have experienced a shift in my behavioral skills and working style. I still repeat her words to myself often - “Growth comes from discomfort and disruption”

Payal was engaging as a business coach and was able to bring each session to a place where I felt empowered to take the next steps forward even when it was beyond my comfort zone. It was unfortunate to see our coaching relationship end but I am grateful for her influence at this stage of my entrepreneurial career.
This was my first Leadership Coaching on Emotional Intelligence by Payal which was exceptionally good and goal oriented. The tips and techniques that Payal shared during the coaching were simple and immensely helpful. I started implementing them and could see the improvement in navigating my emotions which helped in handling tough confrontational situations professionally, The coaching has benefited me in my personal life too. Thank you Payal !!!
