It’s very difficult for me to write a testimonial for Rajat or CTT as they mean so much to me that words fail me. Rajat speaks very less, but whenever he did in class, I was awestruck as to why couldn’t I think of it that way. The learning experience was awesome, so rich and meaningful, that I derived more than I could imagine. Rajat, Arvind, my peers and CTT are my family and extremely dear to me. They are always available with such warmth and depth, that it overwhelms me.

Client Testimonials - Coach-To-Transformation

Executive Coaching worked as a sounding board, and an indirect feedback mechanism, which brought about self-awareness, and helped me develop mindfulness in day-to-day activities. We all have some traits and characteristics, that influence how we perceive things, which may some times contort reality, and affect our response to situations. In order to change that; I understood that focusing on changing one’s personality traits does not work; however by understanding who you are, and why you do what you do, you can have strategies to deal with situations and alter your response to them. However this can be achieved only if you have present moment awareness. Rajat Garg as a Leadership Coach, helped me how to discover who you are and guided me on how to develop and live with awareness. It is a simple truth of life “you can address only those things that you are aware of” and often the simplest things in life are the hardest things to do…

I was mentored by Rajat as a part of the PCC credentialing process in 2016 and would call it one of my best learning experiences. Rajat was virtually managing a group of 15 people and was able to provide support & guidance to all of us individually & collectively. He has this wonderful ability to be present and offer inputs that were relevant at that specific moment. What truly remains with me, more than anything else, was his ability to provide the space for each of us to explore our own learning journeys. Thank you Rajat! Here’s wishing & praying that you continue to touch more lives

Ram Gopalan

Positivista Coaching LLP

Rajat is an extremely patient and centered mentor. He encouraged me to ask questions and gave me space to think freely. It was a pleasure to be in his PCC ACTP class and I remain ever so thankful for all the knowledge he imparted. The best thing about him is that he believes he is learning at all times, which is a fabulous trait to have. I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors and am glad to have found a life-time friend/coach/mentor in him

Rupali Sahai

Eye Level Learning Centre Dubai

Rajat has been inspiring coach & mentor during my PCC coaching training program. His innate style of letting all of explore ourselves by allowing us to speak and express without getting in our way and yet being there to guide us at the right time has been excellent. I learned lot of things like Active listening (one of his excellent trait), exploring who etc. He helped us explore various aspects of psychology, NLP and various coaching models yet ensuring that we keep an eye on core competencies of PCC markers. His constant guidance in terms of constant constructive feedback, creating framework for peer coaching and assignments helped us navigate thru the entire coach training journey. We were about 15 people in our group and he ensured that we remained positive and support each other throughout. I look up to him to resolve any issues that I come across and be like him one day. Thanks a lot Rajat, and I really appreciate of what you have done

Nitin Goyal

I connect profoundly with the listening space that coach gave to me to share all by fears and aspirations freely. Over past several months I saw how the constraints imposed by my inner-most fears started to dismantle as I started to confront these fears. I am able to create more possibilities in many areas of my life where there were none. I find myself a lot more in action – and wasting no time! I learnt to go by instructions from the coach rather than by ‘reasons’ from my inner voice. My aspirations got new wings! My outlook towards my role and position is a lot more positive than how it was before. I find myself demanding extraordinary performance from my team, being more cordial with peers and seniors. There is now a possibility of taking expanded responsibilities while maintaining work-life balance.

Coaching helped me to introspect a lot. What in the past was a race to execute, is now a designed process of reflection, option analysis and only then execution. It has definitely helped me to improve my emotional quotient. It has helped me to be far more balanced. I am investing more time with people and trying to be more inclusive. It has also helped me get a perspective of what must be happening in the minds of supervisors and help appreciate the crisis most of them undergo and not get personally involved in those situations.

Spending more time with self. Spending more time to do things that are close to me or which gives me happiness. Try to gain more energy, reduce spend of energy. Moving from Urgent to Important to reduce last minute rush. Compromise by not insisting on Perfection. Allocate vs Do it yourself. Belief in others doing it over self do. Consciously accept – They are driving vs I am driving!

Improved awareness and ability to name the emotions that I am going thru. Improvement in listening skills that helps to respond, rather than react.

The visualization techniques used by Rekha during the coaching sessions have been very insightful to help understand, articulate and act on one’s feelings and thoughts, regardless of the context or situation. I have found these sessions very valuable

Mohan Ram

Senior Management Professional & Theatre Actor

Rajat was my mentor coach in my MCC credentialing journey. I could very clearly see a difference in the level of coaching between PCC and MCC. So far I had only heard that MCC is a different ball game and now I experienced it as well. Rajat would be candid in giving feedback. His feedback on the coaching session would be precise and an eye opener. My decision to do MCC was always more for a learning than anything else and I was happy that Rajat was my mentor coach in this journey. Thank you Rajat and all my peer coaches for being with me in this journey.

Vandana

This was my second program with CTT. Last year (2019), I got my PCC credentialing done with CTT.

Overall, MCCP program was deeper experience than PCC. While I learned a lot about Mentor Coaching, as a side effect, my overall Coaching skills got enhanced!

This course helped me to deepen my understanding about ICF Competencies – what they are – and what they are NOT!

Both Rajat and Arvind are great at what they do – Coaching and Facilitating a program! Some of the one liners used during the program (e.g. Who you are – Mentor Coach or Coach Mentor) made me think a lot about my Mentor Coaching style. Both of them ensured that the participants learned on their own for most of the time. They gave us space to think – ideate – practice – learn!

The overall structure of the program allowed me to do a lot of practise of the ‘Mentor Coaching’ Skill. Added benefit to me was that most of the participants were PCC and above. So the quality of the conversation in the class room was of very high quality.

Overall, it was a fun learning!

If one wants to be an above average Mentor Coach, then one must go through this course!

All the best!

Rajat Garg has been my mentor coach for MCC credentialing. Rajat excels at the skill of creating a safe and trusting environment during the feedback and mentoring sessions.

His feedback is always constructive and has an approach of self-discovery with a purpose to make your learning impactful. Rajat has helped me to hone my skills as a coach.

Professionally Certified Executive and Leadership Coach

My journey with Coach-to-Transformations is a continuous affair. It has been incisive, iterative and inspirational. Great memories, stories, lessons, anecdotes, all richly contextual to coaching.

Anil Bakshi

“The programme enabled me to connect with many of my Indian clients much more effectively and easily. Our culture is hard-wired into us and Yoga psychology enabled me to connect into that hard-wiring. As a consequence my coaching quality improved and I could see my clients ability to think through and talk about themselves improve when I brought in Yoga psychology words and concepts. Rajas-Tamasic-Satvik is one example. At a coach level I think yoga psychology is a great way to get to “not knowing” – the ICF competency No 4”

Anil Kulkarni

Strategy & Leadership Coach

“ In my quest to find techniques to silence my inner chatter, create more self-awareness and become more present in the moment, this course covered all areas! In fact, I gained so much more than I had initially envisaged or hoped for! I have been able to deepen my self-awareness in such ways I don’t feel I could have achieved elsewhere. By exploring the concepts of yoga psychology, the journey of self-awareness felt more rapid and there have been many “light-bulb” moments! I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Alka and Atul have such a wonderful manner through which they were able to successfully create a relaxed and secure environment in which learning thrived. Being over 4,000 miles away and participating online, I felt I was participating in a highly focused, smooth, relevant course that was executed very well. My understanding of yoga psychology concepts now impacts my thought processes and questioning in my daily life as well as in the coaching process. From my experience so far in applying yoga psychology concepts and frameworks to my own issues or others’, I have felt the pace at which awareness comes is accelerated as, often, I find I can to get to the ‘heart of the issue’! I would go as far as to suggest that Yoga Psychology should be a course for all coaches to undertake before and during their career. For me, it has heightened awareness within me of that which holds me back as a coach. Additionally, for those like me starting out as a coach, yoga psychology has afforded me insight as to what my barriers are which need to be overcome as I start to build and grow my own business.”

Nadene Mackay

ICF ACC (Associate Certified Coach)

It has been my passion to bring out the hidden potential of others which pulled me towards Coaching. I was looking for a mentor who would guide me through my journey to develop credentials and help me in building the coaching muscle.In Coach-to-transformation, I found a mentor and guide who would be my Go-to-person throughout my coaching journey. When I look back, I feel satisfied on taking the right decision which has shaped me in becoming a certified Coach.

Adhir Mathur

The essence of coaching has taught me to move ahead without any anxiety of performing at each and every stage. It teaches you to believe and have trust in your movement which you have created for yourself and the movement has a long lasting impact on all aspects of life. It’s a very powerful shift of mind which takes an individual all together into a new horizon of thinking and looking at life.

Wellness Coach, NABET Certified and a Healer

My journey in the professional coaching was an awakening experience. Learnt to bury the “somebody” I was to become a “nobody” so that can be a mirror to another to find a solution from within”

Bradley Emerson

Director CEO, The Business Athletes (Sri Lanka)

Coach-To-Transformation got me started on a personal journey with two key objectives: one, which would enable me to support anyone who would like to create an impact in their career and life through the power of coaching and second, which would equip me with the skill of self-inquiry to chart my own future. I am confident this journey will be highly rewarding for me and those I coach.

Shailendra Jha

Coach and ex-corporate executive

My pursuit of becoming a life coach found a team in Coach – To- Transformation who are driven by strong vision and intent to ensure life coaching is not just about getting a certification but goes beyond the process to ensure the coaches become the person they needed be, and equip them with skills required to unlock the best possible outcome and provide the support required to work through the issues of the clients in the most professional, empathic, compassionate and respectful manner.
Coach- To -Transformation is an organisation with a heart and purity of intent to ensure that the coach’s that are certified from this entity are of a different league and calibre in terms of handling the clients with at most care, compassion, respect and bound by ethics and code of conduct . Team in CTT are phenomenal and the attention to each student and the guidance provided throughout the coaching journey was commendable.
I was part of the on-line class and was sceptical on the quality and consistency of the lessons but CTT team were extremely professional and organised to ensure all the classes were completed as scheduled and also ensured the depth and essence of the content taught in the class was not lost even in the on-line platform.
Highly recommend CTT for anyone who wish to pursue Life coaching and want to be certified, I surely had a great experience with the team and look forward to being associated with this tribe and growing with this community.

Sunitha M.K

IT Professional I Life Coach

“I was always skeptical about coaching and started with it without any expectations. However, my experience turned out to be very good – coaching was not gyaan-session that I thought it would be. It was more about discovering myself by asking right questions, with a well designed framework.”

Product Head

(Largest eCommerce Company in India)

“Rajat Garg has been my Mentor Coach for my PCC (Professionally Certified Coach through ICF) accreditation process since Aug 2014. The best thing I like about his style is that his approach towards mentoring is typical of a coach and never leading or unconsciously as a coach. He is very articulate, present, non judgmental and listens on all levels: physical, intellectual, emotional and intuitive. He is fearless and does not hesitate to challenge. He creates a safe and trusting space for the delivery of feedback, using a respectful, clear, judgment free tone and very deftly applies the coaching skill to deliver this rather than leading to a solution. To conclude on a scale of 1 to 10 ( 10 being highest), ( I learnt this from him to deal with specifying abstract statements), I would rate his impact as a mentor coach at 9.”

Gayatri

Head Technology, FirstSource

“Rajat’s skills of empathy and clarity of thought has given my own thought process a clear line of vision. Incisive and supportive, he has not hesitated in giving developmental feedback while respecting my learning style. My own level of commitment and responsibility has significantly increased since engaging with him. He just never tires, always available and ready to work with individual challenges. Rajat takes what he does very seriously and is passionate about his work, he truly believes in the value of developing more coaches and the impact it has in creating a transformational Organisation.”

Priya

(Counseling Psychologist)

“I have found Rajat’s sessions extremely engaging and interactive. During our discussions, he brings out his knowledge and experience to the fore, providing deep insights on the topics. His feedback has always been constructive with the intent of raising one’s learning, awareness and self discovery. While analyzing our Peer Coaching sessions, Rajat brings in different perspectives, looking at aspects from various angles, opening up a whole new range of options, which we wouldn’t even have thought of. It’s great to have Rajat as my Mentor Coach and would bank on his guidance for my Coaching journey and beyond.”

Srinath

(Director, Renatus Consultants)

“Rajat Garg is a highly energetic and enthusiastic Mentor Coach, in my experience with him. He is highly knowledgeable in this field and has a very good grip of the ICF’s framework as well as the psychological principles. His friendly approach – in spite of his huge knowledge – is the icing on the cake. “

Krish Venkat

(CEO - Ananthaa Consulting)

“Rajat has been a great coach and a mentor. He really brings the best in you through his intense involvement in the clients journey and his extremely candid and to-the point feedback for a continuous improvement of skills. He brings in life to the conversation with his powerful questioning and makes the learning impactful. With the sessions I had with Rajat as mentor I could sharpen the competencies much faster and enabled me to emerge as a stronger coach to bring in the best from my clients. I can’t thank enough of his help in enabling me to identify a dimension to my professional journey”

Head Customer

Experience (Large MNC bank BPO in India)

“I met Rajat during my coach training session at Chennai in December 2014. The most important thing, which I noticed during the session, was his excellent ability to analyze any situation threadbare and to ask powerful questions. According to me any coach who can do these two things effectively and efficiently can conduct the coaching session in the right direction and help the coachee to arrive at the right decision or reach the right destination. While he is very focused and to the point, he also gives the coachee the required time and leverage for the coachee to realize what is good for him. The coaching session I had with Rajat was very useful and helped me to firm up few of my thoughts. Rajat is very intelligent, quick and able to pick up the right threads from the words of the coachee and then he is able to use the same threads and make the coachee to weave coachee’s own cloth to the requirement of the coachee. His ability is his testimony and I am happy to be associated with him. I wish him all the best in his coaching career.”

Dr.N.Sundarkumar

Rajat is an excellent Mentor Coach and a really nice human being. He helped me tremendously for my PCC certification journey. He was very helpful and was always available- literally a message/phone call away. He has a solid knowledge base and strong foundations in ICF core competencies which have been pivotal for me to gain in-depth PCC credential mastery. He is exact, precise with great time management and active listening skills. His approach is simple, straight and to the point. I owe much of my learning to him for he enabled me to be able to expand myself!

Frances Penafort

ICF MCC, Malaysia

My MCC journey was memorable and transformational at the same time. Our MCC cohort was a diverse group with different cultures and lot of coaching experience. I used to really look forward to our classroom learnings with Rajat and peer coaching sessions with the cohort. Rajat is an excellent mentor coach who will work individually with the learners and work to enhance and elevate their coaching style rather than prescribe one. For me, the shift came when I started believing I am a good coach. As subtle and simple it may sound but this belief helped me get better at my coaching skill

Sujata Barla

ICF MCC , India

I think I was fortunate to be a part of the pro-bono project for IIT students. I always believe that youth are the backbone of our future world and bringing clarity to their thought process would help them to drive in the right direction. It was quite an experience for me to witness the eagerness and the desire to explore the potential in their careers. It was indeed very satisfying to see the shift in students after the coaching conversation. I always look forward to a youth coaching project like this one.

Sandeep Gaidhani

Pro-Bono

It was a pleasure being a part of the Pro-Bono project conducted by CTT for IIT Bombay students. To interact with the students and understand their perspectives and then help them find solutions or the deeper need of their thoughts was very fulfilling. It was very smoothly coordinated by CTT which made the whole experience enriching. I would be more than happy to be a part of such a program again. And I would suggest more students to take up this opportunity and make the best of it!!

Shilpa Jhagirdhar

Pro-Bono

‘’Have enjoyed coaching conversations with meritorious youth at IIT Bombay. These youngsters, excelling in domain knowledge and skills, invariably reflected deeply during the coaching process on their relevant motives, traits, attitudes, values, beliefs leading to incredible and useful discoveries. They explored beyond their current thinking towards what they want to achieve and many had aha exclamations. It has been satisfaction of its kind, unmatched, for the coachees as well as me. Many thanks to Rajat, Ruchi and CTT & IIT teams for this Pro-Bono project. “
