I highly recommend Gaurav at Knowledge Kinetics as a career and life coach. He is a keen observer of human interaction and is adept at reading character and motivations. His accumulated experience and education allow him to quickly assess skill sets and key strengths/opportunities at the individual level, helping his clients grow and progress professionally. Gaurav begins by investing time in open listening and observation, and quickly absorbs critical information and details. Once having formed thoughts and opinions, Gaurav is a thoroughly engaging communicator, whether addressing a single client or a large group. He effectively shares his ideas and recommendations with a personalized and customized approach that is always on target, leaving listeners inspired!   A few examples of Gaurav's coaching and consulting expertise and its impact on my own trajectory include the following: By leveraging Gaurav’s professional expertise transforming qualitative and quantitative data into insightful findings, I was able to bring added value to my larger team. This greatly benefited my organization from a business perspective, and allowed me to grow personally and professionally.   From a consulting perspective, Gaurav also worked effectively with senior leadership, and staff at all levels, to collaborate and advise on effective solutions to problem issues as an internal advisor. His sought-after counsel was a key input in organizational decisions. Whether helping guide you personally on your career and life journey, or inspiring larger teams in achieving critical organizational goals, Gaurav will prove an indispensable asset.

Trena is great to work with. She's a wonderful coach who helps you focus on what actions are needed to progress in your chosen career. In this case, I worked with her on preparation for headshots. She has a wonderful process for planning the shoot to get the most out of the time spent on the session.

About

I have a WEALTH of experience as an educator (secondary schools, college, fellowship recipient (Washington Internships in Education, Federal Executive Development Program) and award winning leadership service with the U.S. Department of Education which qualifies me to be a quick study in meeting the academic and social needs of students from the early secondary to the college levels. I am a prolific writer of poetry, screenplays, movie scripts, and stage plays and have had my productions produced with acclamation, such as my production of "MAHALIA", a gospel musical based on the life and times of "The Queen of Gospel", Mahalia Jackson which I wrote, directed, and stage- managed at the Episcopal Church of St. Andrew, Silver Spring, Md. in September 2013. Currently I am completing a stage play entitled "The Adventures of UNDER- COVER GRANDMOTHER" about a "retired" detective hired by the FBI to investigate rampant fraud, waste and abuse of Medicare and Medicaid at Nursing Homes. She uncovers a rampant number of abuses over and above just those stated above, including drug smuggling and prostitution.

Janaina not only communicates extremely well, able to explain complex issues in a clear, direct manner, but also has a lightness and positive attitude that is contagious. There are few coaches that can balance between powerful results and having fun while producing them and Janaina does both beautifully.

    About

    I listen and approach every interaction with energy and enthusiasm. No one is perfect. But, we can be persistent. As a leadership and communication coach, I believe everyone has a story. But, it doesn't help if we don't know how to tell it effectively. So, I help emerging leaders communicate, speak and share their stories with confidence, clarity and credibility.

    About

    I have spoken to a range of people from youth and educators in schools to women's and men's conferences and CEOs to motivate them to pursue their visions and to reach their goals.
