6 – 8 months
Executive Coaching is a confidential, individually tailored, formally defined, 1:1 engagement designed to meet the needs of the executive being coached and of the organization or individual leader or entrepreneur paying for the service. Coaching focuses on the future. The coach uses behavioural techniques to help the coachee achieve a mutually identified set of goals to improve his or her professional performance, personal satisfaction and consequently improve the coachee’s organization.
A prerequisite is that the coachee has a personal desire to improve his or her level of effectiveness and is open to being coached to this end. We begin with a pre-engagement meeting with the sponsor and the potential coachee to share our approach. Based on our understanding of the coachee’s profile and needs, we then recommend a 8 – 10 session engagement, spanning 6 – 8 months.
The coach then conducts an intensive interview-based 360 degree assessment on the coachee’s behalf with a range of 6 – 12 colleagues/known contacts, as deemed most appropriate. The 6 – 8 sessions that follow distil the broad agenda into specific coaching goals.
In addition, we administer further holistic health checks and psychometric assessments, as appropriate and relevant to our coachees and conduct another dipstick 360° before the close of our engagement, to help the coachee get a sense of where they stand at the time.
The sessions will be a mix of face-to-face and Skype sessions, according to a pre-agreed schedule. We may mutually agree to extend this engagement beyond this, if we agree that further support is in order and/or additional goals are to be addressed.

Coaching has trained my brain to focus on possibility over problem. I am a more composed, well balanced self now. People are able to see the change, a positive change. It was possibly only because I went through the mastery session of Mr Cherian.
You not only helped me find my goals but also showed me direction on how to stay aligned with the same and deliver. My focus has gone up, my ability to make decisions with a composed self has gone better.
I am a great work in progress these days, with 360 degree feedback, both opening and closing, I was able to understand my weakness and get rid of them. My focus on strengths has gone up multifold. I am sure, all these will help me align more with the organisational goals and accomplish them.
It is with great pleasure I recommend Mr Cherian Kuruvilla for the position of a coach. He is popularly known as CK in our company. I was one of the fortunate few who had the opportunity of being coached by CK.
As CK began my coaching I was at first overwhelmed at the onerous task of setting goals, let alone achieving them. But the very next session, I was pleasantly surprised with the ease at which CK helped me out with breaking down complex thoughts into simple ones and devise strategies to achieve my goals.
Very soon I was measuring the progress I was making like a pro. After successfully completing my coaching sessions, I truly feel like a more effective leader.
CK has an aura about him which is infectious and makes undergoing coaching a lovable process. This I believe is the hall-mark of a coach with stupendous skills.
It will be a dream come true for anybody to be coached by CK. These are my honest opinions, but I must say that I am very small a person to be writing a recommendation for a great coach.
During the transition period from being the Head of Training Operations to becoming the Chief Operating Officer, it was CK who coached and mentored me in order to get ready for the new leadership role that I was assigned.
Right from day one, the coaching sessions were simple, effective and assisted me to understand myself in a detailed manner. The process of coaching, which included Questionnaire and Holistic Health section, enabled me to get a deeper understanding of myself as an individual. The 360 degree form was an eye-opener for me. This gave me a completely new picture of the people’s perspectives about my strengths and my true potential.
The design and flow of the entire coaching process was very smooth and never put any pressure on my existing work. Moreover, with a Coach like Cherian it was always an easy session. He is one of the most sensible, practical, humble and understanding person I have worked with. It was an absolute privilege to be coached by him.
Cherian or CK as I call him, coached me and helped me identify/recognize my strengths that I wasn’t aware of. I’d like to describe him as a gentle, strong, empathetic and experienced coach. I have learnt a lot about coaching from him. Thank you CK.
It gives me immense pleasure to state on record the positive changes brought about in me by Mr. Cherian Kuruvila of CNC Transcend Management Services, Bangalore, after a six months one-to-one (Coaching) session. The session focused on improvement in Leadership, the ability in achieving the Sales Targets, the art of being more assertive, improving the interpersonal effectiveness at work, better Time Management, good Financial Planning among others. Mr. Cherian really helped me to reflect and re-position myself to bring about a positive change, personally and officially. I would very confidently recommend Mr. Cherian to anyone, who is heading a Team, Unit or Organization for a (Coaching) session to obtain the desired positive changes
This Future CEO coaching program provided me with the insight, fortitude, strategies and leadership skills that one must have to achieve better results for today and tomorrow.
This coaching with Cherian helped me in gaining the confidence to make Better Decisions Faster by using new Approaches and Forward-Thinking Techniques. Simply my action plans for today are driven by my Long-Range Vision. Now I got the inspiration and knowledge to challenge conventional thinking, confront problems head-on, put groundbreaking ideas into strategies and actions with complete confidence and take my goals to the next level.
