The past six months of working with Dr. Paryavi has truly been the most significant of my life!  She is not only caring and compassionate, she is also a technical powerhouse.  I have never had this level of support on so many fronts, and I don’t even know how to put into words the impact she has had on my personal life, leadership, and organization. Dr. Paryavi has empowered me in so many ways and even reignited an amazing journey of self-discovery that I was not expecting when I started working with her. This has been essential to my growth and effectiveness as a leader, which has in turn, significantly affected my organization’s growth and impact. 

So I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity of working with Dr. Paryavi.  Her approach is simply life-changing and highly personalized and tailored to each person’s needs.  For me, it has been a transformational and unearthing experience where I discovered that most of the skills and qualities I need to be the leader I want to be, are already within me.  But it required such a powerful relationship to realize this and learn how to best cultivate and put them into practice. Working with Dr. Paryavi has not only elevated my leadership, but it has elevated my life!
