“Appreciation is a wonderful thing; it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well” – Voltaire

“Aparna Mehra is a very empathetic coach who brings with her years of practical corporate work experience and coaching techniques and skills. She is a great listener who nudges you with perceptive questions, which lead to phenomenal insights. She holds focus on issues which are relevant to my goals, and encourages me to look deeper within myself to reframe and renew my perspectives on situations.


These skills have worked together to ensure I know myself better. I know my strengths now and play to them. I have an action plan to work on areas which will take me closer to my goals. She is genuinely interested in me as a person, and regular meetings with her ensure that I stay the course both in my professional and personal life.”

“I was looking to understand myself better in terms of my potential and develop greater resilience and confidence in myself.


Coaching helped me immensely, as my dialogues and discussions with Aparna allowed me to discover and acknowledge myself in myriad ways. I achieved a greater sense of clarity about my direction in life and the strengths and core values that I can leverage to fulfil my potential. I now feel more confident to step outside my comfort zone and have a greater sense of congruence with my true self.

Aparna, in her inimitable style, made me comfortable from the start. She listened patiently to more than just my words and subtly nudged me in ways that enabled me to find answers I was looking for, within myself“.

Aparna helped me articulate my life’s purpose and understand my values and strengths. She made me think and come up with solutions to problems I was facing in my professional and personal space.


Aparna’s positive energy and encouragement played a big role in motivating me to change. She applauded my every victory, no matter how small, increasing my determination to continue working towards making the changes required to achieve my goals.”

“My expectations from coaching were to get an independent assessment of my personality and leadership style and then work on some behavioural aspects to strengthen my leadership equation with my team.


My journey over six months was extremely insightful and fulfilling. My coach helped me dive deep into my own persona and correct several myths I had about myself. Key aspects that emerged were the emphasis on building trust with team members, treating them as partners in progress and inculcating the habit of appreciating them regularly.
As my coach, Aparna was particularly empathic, pleasant and patient, and took great interest in ensuring I was not just learning but also practising what I learnt in the sessions. She encouraged me to reflect after every session and come prepared for the next, which ensured that the sessions remained productive and win-win“.

She has helped me obtain a deeper sense of clarity about my aspirations and feel energised and excited about the road ahead.
