Sr. Director of Product Management

I could not have found a better coach than Mahesh to help me grow as a leader. What sets Mahesh apart is that he has himself walked the walk a few times in startups and in trillion-dollar companies. Mahesh understands success takes as much EQ as IQ. He took the time to fully understand my strengths and aspirations. He is very insightful, quick to see the blind spots, and accelerates growth through his coaching. Mahesh helped me transform to achieve both personal and professional growth. I feel very empowered to have an authentic, direct, strategic, compassionate, knowledgeable, and experienced person like him as my coach and advocate.

Mahesh helped me grow and become a Director of AI at Target. I transitioned from an individual contributor role to a management role and leadership challenge by overcoming the challenges. He made me comfortable interacting and working with C-level and SVP-level leaders. Mahesh is an accomplished leader in the tech industry and was therefore able to help me see things from the perspective of the C-Suite. Mahesh has a great breadth of knowledge across AI, ML, eCommerce, and I feel great about having a thought partner.

As a Director of Engineering, I had very few people I could go to for advice. Mahesh thoroughly assessed how I was managing up, down, and sideways. Mahesh helped me with critical areas when I needed it the most. First, he helped me elevate my personal and professional brand. Mahesh made me a powerful storyteller. My thought leadership and the impact of what I did was immediately noticed by my leadership and my teams. I highly recommend his coaching program.

Mahesh has been an excellent career coach. While working with him, I received multiple offers, and he helped me choose the best one. I made this transition after seven years in the previous company, and I couldn’t have done it without his vision and coaching. Mahesh provided deeper insights into my strengths and how to maximize them in my current and future roles. His coaching helped me to boost my confidence and achieve my career goals.

Machine Learning PM

After 7 long years at Western Digital, I was ready to switch careers. Mahesh provided me the much needed professional guidance every step of the way – from planning to developing new skills, and to believe in myself. I could have never done it without his coaching. Thanks to Mahesh, I am now a part of a Fortune 500 company. We cannot achieve big goals by ourselves. We need the right advice at the right time from someone who has been through the journey themselves. Working with Mahesh has been life-changing for me.

Senior Manager Data Science and ML

Mahesh is the best coach I could've ever asked for. There are a lot of things to look for in a coach: are they personable? Do they provide value to me? Do they help me clarify my purpose and how it maps to my job? And there is the most important question: do they get results for me in my career? The answer to all of the above is unequivocally yes with Mahesh. He will work with you from the ground up to help you realize your full potential and realization our career. He is a true professional and I could not recommend him more for any IC or manager/leadership role in the tech industry or otherwise.

I received five amazing new job offers within months of working with him. Mahesh is technical and knows how to amplify the impact of technology on businesses and products. More importantly, I successfully implemented new and big ideas by being pushed out of my comfort zone. Mahesh is the go-to person if you want to seek career advancement. He is a former engineer and a tech leader who coaches from his experience.

Grace Hu-Morley
Interim CMO

I was seeking an interview coach to help me land job offers and chose Mahesh as he is a Product Management exec in Silicon Valley, not just a career transition coach. Mahesh helped me regain my confidence. Not only was Mahesh's approach refreshingly straightforward and candid, but also multifaceted. I thought he would start like most coaches do—the mock interview. Actually, he first helped me work through the self-induced roadblocks that were preventing me from landing the right next job. After I got out of my own way, I received two job offers. Mahesh is now working with me to bolster executive presence and skills to work with the Board and the C-Suite.

Mahesh gave me the tools to nail every opportunity for growth and impact. He has coached me to be a more effective storyteller, perform at the next level, and land my dream job. His coaching has been transformational for my professional and personal growth!

Senior Program Manager

I have known Mahesh for 2 years and have completed 2 annual cycles of career guidance. The beginning year was the most crucial and sensitive time of my life where I felt helpless at the crossroads of a career path. By the time I met him, I had taken 3 years of a maternal break, and by end of the 3rd year, I had zero confidence in getting back to the career world. He helped me unveil my potential and influenced me to never ever undervalue or underrate myself. During my initial sessions, he would deep dive to learn my personality and helped me identify and discover my soft skills and how I could use and implement them into the world of management. Not only did he help me find a job but guided me on the techniques of efficient job search. He taught me how to strategically demonstrate my skills and broaden my impact. He is honest and effective in what he suggests. His recommendations are not generic but specific to the problem and situation.

Mahesh approaches executive coaching with a mixture of mentorship and partnership. He worked with me to double down on my strengths and not only focused on my career goals but reviewed my 2 to 5-year plan from a holistic point of view. His advice put me on a path to join the board of select companies while broadening my executive skills and influence.
