I didn’t know what to expect as I have never been coached before, Kavita asked all the relevant questions that I would not have asked myself, and provided helpful tools to guide me and help change my thinking to a more positive outlook. I would highly recommend her as a coach.

Kavita has impacted my life in a meaningful way. I met Kavita as part of a leadership development program in 2019. The program and Kavita came at a very difficult time, where I professionally moved from being a specialist my entire career, to being a manager / leader. Kavita played an integral part in positioning me, to embrace who I am (introvert), allowing me to direct and continue on my journey of self-discovery and leading others.
