Through my work with Akshay, I’ve realized that some of the highest value experiences in life are not formulaic. Working with Akshay has solidified how much of the best learnings are “in between the lines” and can’t be boxed up and sold en masse.
Through Akshay's coaching, I've developed my own leadership style and have reached new heights. He is an artful listener and responds thoughtfully with ideas and prompts that unfold a path to understanding more of yourself, of your work in the world, and of your life.

I've been working with Akshay over the past eight months to help develop my skills as a team and project leader at Automattic. His insights have been critical to my success and I am confident I would not be as successful without him. He has the ability to understand motivations behind things in my life and helps me to analyze thoughts and decisions to find the right way to approach the future. I've learned to understand what a leader means to myself and how to project that into how I run my team and projects. For the first time in my life I have a path ahead of me and I understand what it's going to take to level up. I know that I can make my own moves without having to wait for someone else to lay a plan out in front of me.

"Akshay has been instrumental in helping me to see with a much broader and clearer vision of how things can be, helping me focus on my personal goals. I am confident that I am NOW a better person and well on my way towards where I want to be in my life. His coaching methods have been helpful professionally and personally in tandem."
-- Jay, Telecom Executive
Akshay forced me to think deeply about my role as an entrepreneur and manager of my team. With incisive questions, powerful mirroring of what I was saying, and a sense of humor, he helped me evolve my thinking and let go of beliefs that were holding me back. I became more comfortable letting go of responsibilities that were not the best use of my energies and instead communicating and inspiring my team to aid in the work.

"I instantly calmed down and regained my confidence, what ever happened I could deal with it."

I was able to add a lot of insights and energy to the conversation and the team said they'd love me to consult on their new creative materials when they're ready!"
