I signed up with Maithilee as my career coach. Her experience in Software Engineering and management has been very helpful to better focus my career goals and guiding me in how I need to start approaching situations to level up. What makes Maithilee different from other mentors I've had is that she truly listens to understand your issue and thinks how to address the issue or remove obstacles in a way that is true to your personality and authentic to you. When the advice is true to your personality, it becomes easy to implement because you don't feel like a fake selling hyperbole and buzzwords. You are staying true to yourself and your values, but are not being held back by it. In addition to career advice, she has also given me insights on mindfulness, maintaining focus, and presence which I found to be quite useful. I strongly recommend Maithilee as a career/life coach.

Maithilee has been my coach for little over a month now, and I already see positive results. Maithilee approaches the situation holistically and customizes to the specific individual -- using her vast treasure trove of knowledge and skills across career, leadership and life. For example, while my primary coaching was related to career and growth, I also got very helpful guidance in related areas of managing energy, mindfulness, motivation and focus. I strongly recommend Maithilee to anyone looking for a career/ life coach. - P. Chamarthy. Manager, Data and Business Intelligence, Google. Dec 2018
"It has been phenomenal to have Maithilee as a life coach since the past few months. During the most difficult times when I was at my lowest, she provided a path forward. Her coaching has helped me gain control of my emotions and navigate through tough challenges that I faced from family, friends, and colleagues. There are very few people who have a major impact on your life and for me, Maithilee has been one of them. It has been a lifelong bond that has been created, which I would cherish forever. Her clear thinking and approach to resolving issues and the strategies to deal with the difficult situations are very well thought through. Thank you Maithilee." - A strong and determined soul who is reclaiming her life back. Dec 2018
"Being a mompreneur, kids, family, and company always came first. Whether I am with family or out at a business event. I wanted to be happy and confident and I realized dressing up myself gave me that extra boost that I needed. I was ok without any help but I was not able to look the way I wanted to look. I realized I needed someone who could teach me how to choose the right outfits and colors for myself. I met Maithilee for a free consultation and decided then and there to work with her to work on myself. She sat down to understand my needs and worries and immediately gave me a plan of action. She educated me about the colors and materials that would be good on me. We picked up few clothing and accessories on budget. Maithilee helped me on how I could mix and match the accessories so that I could wear them for any occasion at anytime and most importantly in less time. That’s it I was on my own in no time. I make better color and dress choices now. Investing in myself was the was the best decision I made in my life! Thanks to Maithilee for all her amazing advice." -Madhu Challa, Founder, Pretty Pokets.

I just finished six sessions of life-coaching with Maithilee. I can honestly say I have never felt so motivated to reach my career and life goals as I do now. My favorite thing about Maithilee is her wisdom. She helped me to tackle my emotional and psychological blocks and to realize my full potential. I would recommend Maithilee's life coaching sessions to anyone interested in being the best possible version of themselves.- Abby Holmes. Oct 2018
Maithilee has a unique ability to understand everything that I have to say. Even though at times, I am confused by my thoughts, she streamlines my thoughts and aligns them in a direction towards a path which I need and which strongly resonates with me to take action. Having brainstorming sessions with Maithilee has enabled me. It gave the much-needed push in my career. Not just that, with the mind-maps that I created with her, uncovered many exciting possibilities for my future. Now she is helping me strategizing my career which is very exciting for me What makes me reach out to her for any advice or general interaction, are her unique abilities to understand and answer questions about almost anything. It feels as if she has been in the situations that I put in front of her and has successfully addressed them. At last, I must say that I always feel energized, limitless and motivated when I talk with her.- SW Professional who is exploring career options. August 2018
Maithilee had a significant impact on my early development as a people manager. She became that "external awareness" who could see right to the heart of my behaviors and tendencies that were holding me back. With this feedback, I began to change. I became less of a "know-it-all" and more of a listener. I began to trust my people to execute. In turn, I became that "external awareness" for my team - helping them to remove blockades to their own success.
Aside from career, Maithilee has influenced my spiritual, personal and parental development - sometimes through conversation and sometimes by example. Maithilee is able to reduce seemingly complex problems into a set of general principles. When she helps me solve a problem in one domain, I can apply those principles in almost any domain.
I often reach out to Maithilee for advice, first because I trust her good intentions for me and second because like a great therapist, she will guide my thinking into a deeper understanding of myself and my mental models. It can be very painful at times to confront my demons and her questions can draw you to dig deep into yourself... but I come out stronger for it each time.

Maithilee is the person who comes first to my mind if we want to discuss anything thing about my daughter. I often reach out to her for guidance on how to handle tricky situations with our child so that we can grow/enable our child and deepen our parent-child bond. Whenever we speak with her, we get a different perspective, which helps us make the right decisions. She has always been there guiding and supporting us making our parenting journey simpler and rewarding.
In addition to being a mother, I am an upcoming lawyer, and Maithilee is also guiding me with my career development. I had a first clarity session with her, and just that has brought immediate positive effect in my professional life. Her advice is helping me to grow and make better decisions. Because of her positive attitude, enthusiasm, empathetic nature and her passion for helping others, I am glad that I have Maithilee as my life and career coach. - G. Mutha. July 2018
