Riders on the stormLeadership and life lessons from high seas and beyond...
Harsh Johari is a lovely man first of all! We chatted about an issue I had in my business and he prompted me to decisively deal with it. He suggested I step into my power and told me why he thought I could which again helped me to step through that doorway. In stepping into my power he helped me see why I could be a CO CEO and I took on that role the same day. The day after we spoke I whole heartedly embraced my business world contacting half a dozen new providers of services my company was ready to explore and making sure I now attend meetings I previously thought were my husbands domain. I absolutely recommend Harsh and have done so already.

"Great coaching session with Harsh. I had clear actions to focus on by the end of just 30 minutes !! I have been hesitating to claim my space. In the session, I realized that I need to focus more on the fact that I have an opportunity to make larger impact If am not giving 100%, the results would reflect the same. Thanks a lot!"

“I was recently coached by Harsh. Overall, it was very insightful. I wanted to discuss a difficulty I used to have in being assertive. The session challenged the way I think and act on situations, and the decisions I tend to make on daily basis that affect my performance & emotions. I realized by asking myself the right questions and consciously consider what is the outcome I am hoping for and making simple decisions and act on them, I can change the way I show up in this world I will give myself more priority and also set clear boundaries and be honest what I will and will not be engaged in, because I have the right to make myself a priority and I am important. Now onwards, I can be attentive to my own responsibilities and needs, rather than focusing on others' needs solely. I also know and reaffirm to myself that what others think of me does not define me. I can say No and it does not make me less of a good person. Thank you Harsh !!”

I had an eye opening coaching session with Harsh recently. I came into the session to discusss an issue I perceived with my communication style, but my biggest insight from the session was that the issue was something else - my inability to build relationships. I realized that I was more transaction oriented and I realize that I should become more relationship focussed with all my stakeholders. I plan to focus on improving my relationship with all my stakeholders by increasing the contact with them more even during times when there are no transactions involved.

I recently engaged with Harsh as a coach. It was insightful and mind-opening as it gave a different perspective on how I was feeling and that everything I need should come from within myself. Post the session, there is less self-doubt especially on decisions that I may be making. I can now give more time for myself to self-evaluate and focus on the jobs at hand, which I couldn’t do before insightfully

"I recently had a coaching session with Harsh. I’m going through very difficult times where I have to make decisions that will have a big effect on my future. I am happy to share that my overall experience of the coaching session was great and I found it very useful, since in less than one hour, he coached me on how to act to deal with the situation and how to be strong and confident.He gave me some elements to walk the path with more confidence because I know that I can do it. He made me confident and believe that I can run this company with the experience and skills that I have and what I don’t have doesn’t matter because I’m sure I can find it.Thanks for the coaching !"

I attended Harsh’s session on ‘Leading Change’ and was impressed by Harsh and his coaching skills. Harsh comes with a great experience in coaching change management leadership across organisations. His natural skills of coaching and relating to real life plethora of experiences that he brings from his early career days on Ships and sailing, has helped not only me but all my colleagues to understand different stages in change management and action items in each phase. His concept of NORTH STAR and how can help you find Your North Star is phenomenal. He directly links it with how he used to navigate ships in his early days of his career. I strongly recommend leaders driving change in organisations to engage with Harsh to understand how he has helped leadership drive and succeed in bringing radical changes in their organisations. Thank Harsh and I really hold you in very high regards for the coaching you have provided to me this year. It has helped me succeed in my initiatives

I embarked on the journey of coaching with Harsh about a year ago and found my journey to be truly transformational. Harsh was able to help me look deep within, understand my fears & vulnerabilities and showed me that there were possibilities. This was important to understand and chart out precise and actionable next steps (personally & professionally). Glad I had the opportunity to have him as my coach and I wish him the very best

Harsh has also been my 1:1 coach for some time now. His ability to breakdown a problem statement to get to the root of it is simply amazing! And then he delivers hard-hitting message to drive the message home. His insights come as a result of his rich experience of multiple careers, spanning more than 2 decades! Highly recommend Harsh as a career guide, business coach and corporate trainer

When Harsh is training the class, you ought to be hooked to the subject. I had the pleasure to work with Harsh during his tenure at Goldman Sachs. I always had huge admiration for his ability to be able to connect to his audience and articulate complex workflows flawlessly. I rarely missed a session where Harsh was the speaker, he always had real life experiences to share from his time in the Navy. I highly recommend him as trainer”
Executive Director at Goldman Sachs, Singapore
My first interaction with Harsh as my coach was quite insightful when he said that coaching is not a magician’s work, but coaching works because it is all about me. The preconditions he has for me was to keep an open mind and take an active part in the process rather than being a back-seat driver and expect magic to happen. The coaching process was to understand what I really wanted and understand the excuses I make not to do things I want. Discussing the excuses, I had for not following my dream, was a powerful technique to bring the right focus on things that matter. The coaching sessions with Harsh were quite helpful and some key learnings from those sessions continue to guide me.

Recently I had the pleasure of associating with him as a personal coach and sounding board and was yet again pleasantly surprised! His ability to narrow in on the core issues - no matter what domain - professional, personal, psychological or emotional was not only as sharp as before, but his ability to land the message became even more precise. I really loved the interactions with him and had some really valuable "a-ha" moments which got me to the right track. What makes him special is his ability to look at problems holistically and not in silos, but at the same time able to provide suggestions that are precise and actionable. The big picture analysis and on the ground action make him really effective as a guide, coach and mentor and I must add as a friend, if you are fortunate to know him

Before getting into the coaching engagement with Harsh, some of my challenges were around how to be more assertive and speak with confidence. Through the coaching, I am now able to see myself more clearly and also have more clarity and awareness for people around me. This has helped in developing more productive relationships with my teammates. I feel more connected and engaged in my network. Unlike others, Harsh as a Coach has been honest with me about how I am doing, reminding me of what I have said or should not have said, supporting the right intentions. At a personal level, I also realized how to be more assertive and when to say NO. I am happy to state that some of my struggles are now a thing of the past and overall coaching engagement has been highly successful"

"Coaching sessions with Harsh allowed me to self-introspect, which helped in working towards some traits of my personality which I never thought of working on or would have ignored in the rush of life. Being proactive & vocal has been my biggest achievement. I looked & worked upon a lot of aspects that helped me in being more expressive & it articulated into more powerful expressions through words. Overall, it has been a great learning experience. These sessions helped me to pause & look back on miniscule things that make a difference in life. This is an ongoing process of working upon oneself, on the path of it! Thoughtfulness & gratitude towards Harsh as my Coach who made this experience fruitful. Wishing him happiness and success"

“Working with Harsh on a project around Change Management was a masterclass on minimalism- the genuineness and simplicity with which he approaches any intervention transcends conventional wisdom and makes it practical and believable. More power to him !”
