Meet The Team

The Values We Live By

  1. Live Ubuntu – I am because we are
    We go further together than we do alone. Collaboration and working towards common goals with accountability to each other is how we achieve our potential.
  2. We’re all human first
    Before someone is a trainer, a customer, or an employee, they’re all human first. We respect the intrinsic dignity of all people regardless of their background.
  3. Anyone can be a coach and a leader
    Leadership is a versatile skill set with many applications – from a team leader to a mother to self-leadership – and anybody can be a coach. We welcome people from all walks of life and believe in their potential.
  4. Think Systemically
    Our actions rarely have an isolated impact only on ourselves – they affect all the systems within which we operate, such as our colleagues, peers, family, and society. The best decisions are made when we take into consideration the people around us and the broader implications.
  5. Take Ownership
    We take initiative instead of waiting around, and we go above and beyond to bring our best to the table.

What We Do

Our business is coach training, leadership training, corporate programs, coaching and all the supporting activities that go with it.  Our passion is to democratize coaching, thereby affecting positive systemic change across the world. Our approach to all that we do combines Western psychological and neurobiological models with Eastern philosophy, focusing on ethical leadership.

Coacharya coach training

To individuals, this means training towards coaching credentials with ICF, EMCC or CCE, getting support in life and work transitions, and lifelong learning (for coaches and non-coaches alike) through our webinars, online courses, article and podcasts.

Coacharya group coaching

To companies, this means scaling coaching skills throughout their organizations, supporting their leaders, increasing team, individual and organizational performance, helping in developing corporate cultures, and building a bench of leaders so that they can create sustainable company growth.

Coacharya has certified over 1000 professional coaches, worked with 30+ Fortune 100 companies, and helped tens of thousands of others find their purpose.

Leadership Development Resources

As part of our ongoing commitment to the coaching community and all individuals interested in leadership development, we constantly update our online resource library.

What Is “Coacharya”?

The word ‘Coacharya’ combines the best characteristics of a Coach, one who inspires a client to maximize potential holistically, with that of the Acharya, a Sanskrit word for a mentor guide who walks with the client without judgment. Coacharya blends the inspiring skill of the master coach with the artistry of the non-judgmental guide, the acharya, who walks alongside.

Our Story Until Now

From early in his career Ram had a deep interest in psychology and human behavior in corporate environments. In 2005 Ram started teaching self-development and emotional management programs designed as life solutions as part of his own spiritual quest. He based these on his studies of Transactional Analysis, NLP, Appreciative Inquiry, Meditation, Zen, Tao, Energy Psychology, and energy healing techniques. In the years that followed, Ram became the 5th ICF-credentialed coach in India, and in turn, began to train professionals seeking encore careers to become coaches. Thus Coacharya was born in 2013 with Pranav, Ram’s son, joining as a partner.

Soon Coacharya became the only coach training organisation accredited by ICF, EMCC, and CCE. The new approach of combining ancient philosophy with modern science positioned Coacharya as a one-of-a-kind offering in the global market. By 2017, Coacharya’s long-term potential in leadership development was apparent. That’s when Magda joined as partner and CEO to scale Coacharya globally and transform the company into a robust leader in the coaching and learning space.

Coacharya is now a strong global community of leaders, coaches, healers, and activists. With over 1500 coaches trained to credentials, Coacharya has become a world leader in developing ethical coaches across every niche, and the number one choice of Master-level coaches.

Our journey is just beginning. Coacharya is democratising knowledge of and access to coaching so that together, our community can drive systemic change toward a better world.
