"Associate Vice President-Circle HR Business Partner. Vodafone India Ltd."
"Hiring Sanjay as a Executive Coach for Vodafone is without a doubt the best decision. Sanjay has excelled in his assignment and as a Coach, he has been instrumental in transforming people he coached. Sanjay is very passionate about his work which reflects on the quality of work he does with his coachees. He has the knack to push his coachees and continuously challenges them and makes them operate out of their comfort zone. His work has been truly transformational to his coachees. Even after his engagement is over, he continues to work closely with his coachees in supporting their personal and professional growth.
"Sanjay's approach to coaching is not just about the professional, but takes all of coaches goals in life into account in helping them make the best decisions and adopt the best approaches. His coaching style is to constantly ask questions to help coaches work through the issue -- he listens exceptionally well, and encourages to talk through the challenges faced by coachees. Sanjay has the ability to cut through the noise and to hone in on the real issue. Sanjay is very professional, thoughtful, experienced, grounded and real."
"Head Commercial DPG North at Voltas"
There are very few people on the earth who can connect to each one who comes in contact; trust me, Sanjay is one of the rarest one. He has an aura that keeps every one engaged with him in the given time. He has a wide treasury of knowledge and the best part is he keeps on sharing it with everyone. His techniques of couching, teaching and mentoring is beyond any comparison.
"Head - HR & Admin Fresenius Kabi"
Sanjay is a professional coach and motivational speaker par excellence. He is great human being, too. Sanjay has worked with us on couple of OD interventions and our experience has been overwhelming. He has got in-depth understanding of subject and prepares himself for each assignment. He do not believe in delivering out of shelf programs.

"Head Corporate Learning & Development Voltas Ltd."
Sanjay has conducted workshops on Behavioral Event Interview for 8 batches of senior managers. I got a lot of positive feedback from the participants.. I see a significant increase in their knowledge and awareness on BEI. I find them more confident, engaged and motivated to practice what they have learned in the workshop.

"Dy.General Manager-Customer Support Group Vodafone."
As we approach the end of our coaching sessions I would like to place on record my sincere appreciation for the intense time and effort spent in coaching me.
Your approach to helping in setting and achieving my goals has been not just about the professional, but about interlinking my personal life challenges into the journey ahead.
Thank you Sanjay, for helping me make the best decisions and learn to adopt the best approaches in every facet of my life.
You have encouraged, pushed, driven and made me stretch to limits I had no idea I was capable of. You listen exceptionally well and encourage me to talk through the challenges we all face but are afraid to confront. I now have the clarity and ability to cut through the noise and hone in on the real issues at hand. The best testament to your coaching may be that as issues come up that I want input on, your coaching voice is inside my head telling me the questions I want to ask, how to approach the issue, asking me what I want from the outcome.
Sanjay, you are professional, thoughtful, experienced, perceptive, grounded and real. Let me conclude by saying: “I have gone from doing the things that I thought I needed to do, in a very hurried, disconnected and driven way to being the person that I always knew I was and wanted to be but just didn't think I could or had the time to be.”
"Dy.General Manager-DSA Sales Vodafone"
I have known Sanjay Agarwal for 6 months now. He has been a felicitator in my journey towards success. Sanjay has played the role of coach very well. He enables a person to prioritize and focus on the key attributes required to achieve ones goals. Sanjay , does not “Do it for you” he ensure the persons invests time, hard work, stretches and LEARNS how to achieve goals. His firm and diligent method of questioning, enables a person to arrive at the right answers. In a nut shell, he empowers you and also shows you an illuminated path to discover ones talents and achieve goals.

It involved closely working with the client in Korea (the digital hub for this company in the APAC region)The project spanned over 6 months and Sanjay was able to create a world-class product for the client. His deep understanding of the subject matter as well as ability to simplify complex concepts, creatively depict the content, and create engaging workshop interactivities to keep the user engaged throughout the duration of the workshop is excellent. His communication skills (verbal and written), ability to understand the client perspective (having worked on both sides of the pharma industry), timely delivery of material, and work ethic is impeccable.
"Assosicate Vice President & Head -Incentives & Recognition Business at Sodexo"
When I was nominated by my company to undergo a one-to-one leadership coaching program with Sanjay for 3 months, I had my own apprehensions on what value he can add to me? Is it worth investing 3 months time? Sacrifice 13 Saturdays? (Holiday for us) I started my first session with a mix of reservations and cautious expectations. While the cynic in me wondered whether I..
"Head Customer Service at Sodexo"
"--------Sometimes they help us take up specific goals and accompany us through the process of achieving them. At no time do they force the direction which we need to take but persistently nudges and guides us to take our own path. Such a person we could call a “Coach”. In Sanjay I have found such a person. In my interaction with Sanjay, I have found him to be a genuine person interested in the progress of the people he is dealing with. His experience across organizations and functions is an asset which he brings to the coaching table. Sanjay’s demeanor makes it very easy for people to connect with him"
"Director - Operations Jardine Lloyd Thompson"
Over a year ago, when I was grappling with two things, one- a"personal circumstance" and second- "Professionally, what next!" is when I was lucky to have found Sanjay who then became my Coach.I did get a perceptible value with his coaching engagement with me at the time. But what I had not realised then was the value those insights would continue to deliver to me over a much longer span of time. It resulted in me improving on various attributes fundamentally, which I can see now, a year on from then.
"General Manager Operations Sodexo"
" Sanjay is a thorough professional coach with great interpersonal skills. He works around people skills and has a unique intuitive coaching style. His team-building skills are unmatched, and his camaraderie has helped me build my team. His presence itself brings a lot of positivity around. He gets the best out of people & is well focused.
It's hard to find coaches who are both immensely knowledgeable and perceptive. His suggestions are insightful and realistic to implement. I'd recommend his services to any company going through a rough spot, or even if things are running smoothly. He helped me not only bringing productivity to my job but also helped me build my personal life."

"To cope up with the transition currently the organization is undergoing , we decided to conduct a competency based interviewing (CBI) skill workshop for our Human Resource Team Members. Knowing well the credentials, we hired Sanjay to conduct the workshop spreaded over two days. Our expectation was to offer the requisite skill set to our HR team members in conducting the interviews. This workshop addressed basics as well as some of the finer issues of the CBI. To a great extent I found this workshop to be an eye opener for the talented HR managers even. Sanjay was instrumental in carrying out the workshop with utmost confidence and the approach was very grounded . The workshop modalities consisted of a mixed approach of learning and delivered with utmost care.

"Thanks a lot for the 2 great days of learning and insights for learning facilitation.
The program was of great value & participants could connect the solutions to their real needs @ work place.
The success of this intervention was due to the deeper understanding of issues & customization of the content.
You could relate to the challenges well and helped the participants formulate the solutions on their own, with structured methods.
The sessions on Assertiveness & Business Consulting was valued the most by the participants, TNI & Facilitation skills being next in line.
