"Working with Niha was a pivotal moment for me. I was at a career crossroads, feeling "stuck" amidst common challenges faced by many South Asian females: the submissive vs. "dragon lady" dilemma, the pressure to maintain perfection, and the value of staying quiet and letting hard work speak. Niha provided tools and frameworks to transform these obstacles into strengths. With her coaching, I've shifted the narrative, harnessed my power, and thrived in leadership, expanding my scope while reducing stress. Niha's insights into South Asian culture and her ability to uncover underlying issues have been invaluable. Thanks to her guidance, I've earned another promotion. Niha's coaching has been truly transformative."

"The journey of retraining my brain and shifting my mindset from how I was taught to think to how I should be thinking in order to maximize my potential was not an overnight process. It took time for the concept to truly sink in and for me to be open to letting the process unfold. While reflecting back, it now seems like a straightforward realizations, but during the coaching process, there were moments of uncertainty and confusion. Having a trusted sounding board, which was you, played a significant role in keeping me on track. Although I could identify problems, knowing how to tactfully address them effectively was a skill I lacked prior to coaching. Your guidance reassured me that it's acceptable to be a woman with emotions and taught me how to channel them in more productive ways. This included navigating through situations where stereotypes about women being overly emotional or reactive arose, instilling in me the confidence to handle such situations consistently and effectively. Things are going great. The company is growing. And I have an equity stake in the organization. I’m well-respected and it’s only growing. People I meet have noticed the impact and change as well.."

"At the Women in Oral Surgery conference, I met you during a talk that stirred up unresolved emotions, particularly regarding the difficult path I endured to get here. This experience left me feeling paralyzed with indecision even years later, fearing a repeat of past mistreatment. However, with your guidance, I found the courage to pursue my aspirations with boldness and confidence, aiming to achieve respect in the workplace, pursue further education, and start a family. Thanks to your support, I now have faith that things will work out, and I am grateful to be in a better place personally and professionally. Update: I'm thrilled to share that I have been accepted into surgery residency!"
