Here are some feedback from her clients:
"I have been engaging with Gowri over the past 18 months to help me understand my strengths and weaknesses as I prepare for transitioning into a senior role. Her experience as a former C level professional in the corporate world, combined with her coaching skills, helped me understand how to position myself better for my next role. In our sessions, she helped me relook at specific situations from shoes of a senior professional and I was able to see that talent alone was insufficient for leadership. I am now relooking at my modus operandi within the organisation and seeking sponsorship."

"I had the opportunity to interact closely with Gowri recently and was really benefited by her outcome-focussed coaching / mentoring model. She always had the knack of asking the right probing questions to make me understand my strengths and capitalize on the same, thus being highly effective and instrumental on the outcome we were targeting, but at the same time maintaining a personal touch that made all the interactions enjoyable. I strongly recommend Gowri as a coach for anyone facing a career hurdle or looking to enhance their capabilities / prospects."

"I have been coached by Gowri over a period of two months when I was going through a period of uncertainty in my career. Coaching by Gowri helped me to organise my thoughts and plan for my career transition, which included a change of place and a search for a new role. It also helped me clearly understand my strengths and articulate my priorities succinctly, helping me to take action with them in focus. This was a stressful period and coaching from Gowri helped me deal with the practical difficulties as well as emotional challenges that came with it. Gowri’s experience and expertise as a coach gives her the maturity and empathy that helped me identify my challenges and concerns, and deal with them comprehensively."
