Testimonials

The very first time I saw Alchemy conduct a team event, I knew that I wanted to get coached by Jayshree. It has been a wonderful journey of self-awareness at multiple levels. Our lives continue to get busier with tactical tasks and long range goal-setting and planning gets put on the back burner. Coaching with Jayshree brought it out to the front and helped me achieve my goals.
Alchemy does wonders in a team setting too. I used Alchemy experts to focus, motivate and scale my team to new heights.
I would highly recommend Alchemy to everyone seeking to explore the art of possible.

I got an opportunity to get coaching from Mangesh when WordsMaya was in the ‘concept validation’ stage. With a perfect balance of patient listening and direct questioning, Mangesh gave me a new perspective on customer segmenting, pricing and sales strategy.

I have experienced Alchemy work, both in the context of ARAI as well as SAE. Alchemy consultants have a unique way of combining psychometric instruments and experiential learning. Their insightful facilitation and relating back to the context creates value for us.
We have seen our teams come together, appreciate diversity, learn about each other’s strengths and foster bonds for higher performance.
Additionally, Alchemy individual reports serve as a guiding light in making important career decisions.
I would highly recommend Alchemy, especially for cross-functional task forces.

Even after completing my Masters in Political Science, Bachelors in Law as well as a course in management from UK, I had not found a fulfilling profession. My chance meeting with Mrs. Jayashree Kirtane changed things for me. She conducted my MBTI test and analysed the results. Her strong suggestion for me was to pursue a career in teaching which had never featured in my options ever. IThe detailed analysis was very helpful for me to understand my strengths and weaknesses and how I could maximise my strengths to make a successful and satisfying career with the help of them.
I took her advice seriously and since then there has been no looking back. In the last 8 years, I have worked with reputed institutes of Pune as a GRE , GMAT and CAT trainer and acquired a niche for myself.
I would highly recommend all students and professionals to undergo this test and I take this opportunity to thank Mrs Jayashree Kirtane for her priceless guidance that gave my life a new and right direction.

I attribute a great deal of success for a our family business and my own school to Alchemy Consultants. Our family business was at crossroads where we had to determine a Succession Plan and the future path of the company. From my first conversation with Mangesh Kirtane, I knew that he was the right coach for our large team of passionately involved family members because he has the gift of listening. With a carefully prepared Road Maps, and regularly planned high focused meetings each member was able to identify their strengths, assess gaps and create a Success Plan based on an engaging, hands-on Dream Session.

Mangesh and Jayshree’s abilities to assess strengths scientifically, listen carefully, examine the key issues, and coach everyone professionally to bring their clients’ highest potential are the USPs that Alchemy offers
