Why should you join as a PeopleFirst Mentor?

PeopleFirst empowers leaders and professionals to be more purpose-driven so that they can create successful and value-led enterprises. We achieve this through interventions and courses that are created by our in-house subject matter experts or co-created along with premier institutes and industry partners.

However, there certain aspects of personal and professional growth that are highly person specific. These cannot be addressed through group interventions or even a Coaching engagement. The former tends to address shared objectives while the latter is more context driven. This is where Mentoring adds immeasurable value to individuals because they can benefit from the rich experience of someone who has been there and done that and can now use their experience to help the individual in the latter’s journey.

Professionals benefit from the vast experience of our Mentors who can provide meaningful guidance and insights to prepare them to succeed in their career objectives. On the other hand, Mentors too gain from the process as they interact with senior professionals who need to be mentored.

Headquartered at Mumbai, PeopleFirst has for years been a facilitating ecosystem for ambitious Professionals and top-of-the-line Mentors. PeopleFirst Mentors have enabled hundreds of Professionals maximize their potential and build the foundation for a successful career.

Had an opportunity to participate in a 2 day workshop conducted by Jag on leadership. Frankly more than a coach, he came across as a guide who guides you through role plays, a catalyst who instigates your thinking, a philospher who reminds you to look inward and do maximum in the span of your control and most importantly a nice human being having highest regards to human values.Jag is still in touch even after 45 days of workshop and finds time to answer queries and gives guidance. My highest regards and the best wishes toJag for creating value and adding value to thousands and millions in corporate world & outside of it through his mentoring ,coaching and writing.

His sessions were eye opener to me personally and the examples of situations were immensely helpful. I truly hope that the Programme will help me go to the next level of leadership. I believe in what he said where Every Person is a Leader himself. Thank You Jags for a Great experience!

Senior Director - MetLife
I had the opportunity of undergoing an “Executive Coaching” intervention with Jagmohan Bhanver. His ability to connect with his protégé is amazing. He is very easy to work with, very friendly yet very professional in handling coaching conversations. While he will be very patient in listening to your perspective, he will be very truthful while giving guidance. He poses some very relevant questions which makes people think by going inside, introspect and come up with potential possibilities towards their career development. He will challenge you, inspire you and make you uncomfortable, all for your own good. All my sessions with him were very insightful and progressive. I must say it was an enriching experience being coached by him. I would strongly recommend that if you ever get an opportunity to work with him, just jump on it and make the most of it…..last but not the least…..a BIG THANKS to Jagmohan for all his efforts & contribution towards making me a better professional.

Director - Business Analysis - MetLife
Jag Bhanver is a great coach & catalyst for change, someone who sparks action in others. What makes him different from other executive coaches is that he goes beyond the process and is able to get to the core of the issues. He does not impose solutions but takes your thru a journey of transformation where you find solutions on your own with self-realization. He uses a technique of asking questions, which makes you think on aspects which you have thought before. He has an uncanny sense for human behaviour which enables him to help people make sustainable changes. I have found his coaching to be extremely constructive & effective. It has been a pleasure & learning being coached by him. I would highly recommend Jag as a coach to any Senior leader anywhere in the world.
