Amid the increased business competition and the ravages of the Covid-19 pandemic, companies and organizations are still under pressure to improve productivity and overall performance. However, it's somehow proving to be a challenging course for many companies. The local and global business environment has become more modest, with every player pushing hard to outweigh the competition and remain afloat. But, among the many business strategies, coaching and investing in employees has remained the key to success.

To him, coaching is an effective and practical communication practice for leaders to unleash their employees’ best performance. His advice is to engage with your employees and general workforce as that's the secret to success in the highly competitive business environment. Ajit says that only through coaching will you be able to grow best and empower your employees.
Ajit points out that the essence of coaching is for the company to create authentic work relationships, which he terms as a long-term investment in the company's health.
