With 20+ years in the Information Technology sector and a decade of running restaurants prior to that, Kumar possesses a unique skill set and approach to transformational coaching that’s always evolving. He strongly believes that guiding leaders on a path to a coaching mindset is key to unlocking the potential of the individual, the team, and ultimately the organization.
Most recently, Kumar has been working to blend a professional coaching approach from the International Coaching Federation (ICF PCC) with an iterative approach to achieving your goals and outcomes.
"Yes, we can do that"
I find myself saying this a lot, and yes, sometimes it gets me in trouble! I believe in endless possibilities and countless opportunities to help me move forward, no matter how stuck or frustrated I may feel at times! Whenever you find yourself feeling like giving up, try your hardest through thick-and-thin because there is always a path forward.

Coach for individuals and teams.
I highly recommend Kumar as a coach for individuals and teams. He coached our psychometric team of nearly 40 staff to design and iteratively implement a new and more Agile way of working that fit our needs. He also provided individual coaching for managers and staff members. As an individual coachee I truly appreciated Kumar's ability to genuinely connect, ask insightful questions, and assist me in challenging situations.

Exceeded my expectations.
I attended Kumar's Agile Facilitation class through Agile Meridian. It far exceeded my expectations. The fact that it was virtual made no difference - in fact probably helped model good practices in these times. What I learned in the class was far beyond what I hoped to learn to bring back to my role as a Scrum Master for my team.
