    awaiting the start of the discussion..standing by….

  2. Amruth says:

    Good opening thoughts Mr. Pillai..

  3. Amruth says:

    I guess the internal coach will be looked at as ‘ one of our guys’ and sometimes not takes seriously. He/ she will have to work harder to counter this perception.

  4. Amruth says:

    Question to the panelists: Does the Coach HAVE to be a ‘certified’ coach? Does he need to have an ICF or whatever certification? I see a lot of people rushing to get certified & calling themselves ‘coaches’.

  5. Very encouraging and motivating excerpt.
