Post a 13-career career stint with multinational companies and early to growth stage startups that culminated into leadership HR roles, I am a qualified Coach creating transformative impact on people's personal and professional selves. I am certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) in addition to my Professional Coaching credentialing by the Coach Transformation Academy & Erickson Coaching International. Immersive discussions around goals, aspirations, calling and clearing perceived mental blocks brings forth the best in people through powerful questioning with my core Coaching style being, heightened self-awareness.
RESURGENCE is my authentic intent to help people thrive and operate at peak potential. I partner with individuals who keenly seek personal growth and are willing to unlock their full potential to achieve their personal and/or professional goals.
I hail from the Doon valley and am the only child to my parents. My schooling was from the famed St. Joseph’s Academy, Dehradun post which I pursued my MBA in HRM from Management Development Institute [MDI], Gurgaon in 2007. A natural athlete, having played almost all major outdoor sports, I have also cleared the Services Selection Board (SSB) assessment centre in my 1st attempt for the National Defence Academy (NDA) back in 2000.
Writing is something I love! It is truly fascinating and liberating. I mostly write about emotive real-world personal experiences around workplaces and human behaviour. On my personal website, you'd find my blog and a short compilation of trended posts and media publications. LinkedIn is where I am mostly active and you'd see my sharing perspectives around the causes that I am truly passionate about - personal growth, organisational culture & leadership, emotional intelligence, women in the workplace, servant leadership and leading from the heart.
I enjoy breaking stereotypes and strongly believe in walking the talk and practicing before I preach. You would see some of these in my professional journey and each unconventional pivot was worth it! I have this strong belief that all of us are multi-faceted and life is too short to be compartmentalised into a single box. Our truest potentials are realised only when we move out of our comfort zones and that is when we can truly thrive. Not merely live, but thrive.
My personal time is best spent writing, following cricket & lawn tennis, watching crime thrillers on Netflix or simply having an authentic conversation with someone. My wife, also my former batchmate, is an HR professional working with a leading multinational bank in Delhi NCR. Our bundle of joy arrived earlier this year and nothing else has ever felt more blissful. 2020 has been super!
You and I we met as strangers
Each carrying a mystery within us.
I cannot say who you are;
I may never know you completely,
But I trust that you are a person in your own right,
Possessed of a beauty and value that are the Earth's richest treasures.
So I make this promise to you:
I will impose no identities upon you, but will invite you
to become yourself without shame or fear.
I will hold open a space for you in the world
and allow your right to fill it with an authentic vocation and purpose.
For as long as your search takes, you have my loyalty.
~ Theodore Roszak
Vishal is gifted with an ability to put a clamorous mind to rest. As a coach, he displays a high degree of compassion and understanding. This coupled with a capability to listen intently, and break a seemingly daunting situation down to a simple one, allows his clients to be fully self-expressed and become truly optimal in their productivity. He uses simple-to-understand modalities that are fun and engaging even though they provide for truly cathartic experiences. Having him as a coach is very reassuring. Add to this, his pleasant demeanour and friendly tone, and you know that you have a friend and mentor, all combined in one person. Thank you Vishal for helping me in simplifying the intricacies of my mind and believing in the best version of myself.
Vishal is a very competent leader whose strength is not only his deep understanding of the human behaviour, but his strong sense of empathy and compassion as well. I connected with him to seek professional guidance and develop a deeper understanding of my own values. The discussions with him are extremely conversational yet the solutions and understanding that come out are very unique and helpful. Most of all, his patience, respect and strong ability to understand multiple perspectives make him an excellent Coach.
My experience with Vishal as a Coach has been terrific. Vishal comes across as a genuine, sympathetic and a learned individual. He has an innate understanding of the HR industry and as a coach he offers valuable and insightful tips, which helps candidates break the ice with organisations of choice and land their dream job. Being someone who was looking to shift the gears of his career, Vishal was extremely understanding and helpful to guide me towards the right path. Overall, I would definitely recommend him to my peers and others in my network who are looking in for career related advice and assistance.
Vishal is a perfect mix of a thorough professionalism and empathy that he carries during his coaching session. He very patiently listens and carries out conclusion with logic. He made me really comfortable and also pushed me to think deeper for myself. It has been great knowing him.
Vishal is a great Coach and a true leader. He is an informed opinion professional and the go-to person whenever you need a suggestion or guidance. He is not someone who would give you ready made answers but would guide you to solutions by asking the right questions ensuring you learn through the process and figure out answers yourself.
Vishal has the capability to look at things from other person's perspective and understand it without being judgemental and that helps him to effectively mentor others. Being a patient listener is an added bonus. Perfect combination of qualities for a great Coach.
