Business Coach & Consultant
As a Personal and Executive Coach, I help people get to a place of complete alignment with their purpose so that their work and life feels effortless and success becomes inevitable. Allow me to explain…
You may have had that feeling, even if it was fleeting – when life felt easy. Not that it was easy; it just felt that way. The path you were on felt right. The relationships around you were effortless. Success was a given. And then, something turned. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what happened, but you found yourself on a path that didn’t feel like yours. Your relationships felt like work. Success felt intangible. It happens over time and when we least expect it. Maybe you’ve started to believe that living differently is far out of reach.
Leadership Coach, CPC
Anuj grew up in a unique way – around monks and a deep spiritual tradition. In fact, when he was 17, he traveled with a monk across the United States for two weeks, and had the great fortune to spend two summers as a teenager traveling across India.
This sort of upbringing changed his life. The wisdom, lifestyle, teachings, and inner clarity of the monks he grew up around, despite his personal struggles and journey, guides his life in a profound way and is a foundational element of much of what he does today.
“Everybody in my company raves about the coaches. We basically just want you guys to follow us around and tell us what to do ;). You have a great way of breaking things down and making them seem less daunting, and you help us reach our potential.”
“I hired an STC coach because I was at my wit’s end and simply wanted to prove – after I fired this toxic but high-performing individual – that I had done my best by giving him coaching support. Six sessions later, I hardly recognize him and he’s now a candidate for a promotion.”
“Your authenticity, kindness, integrity and direct approach are formidable and so very effective in creating space for people to evolve. You also know and get our business, which is critical in establishing trust and relatedness.”
