Hello, I’m Aparna Bavle.

I Help New Managers Build Strong Teams & Grow Their Careers.

Inspire, Empower, Lead … for Greater Impact

Management is a hard job. There is no operational manual. There are no mainstream courses to learn from. When individual contributors are made Managers, they are expected to know-it-all. It is a difficult transition from being responsible for your own productivity to now being responsible for the productivity of your team. 

First-time Managers are left clueless in their new roles. How do I know? I have been there. I struggled and barely survived my first six months as a new Manager. Then, I learned on the job. I observed leaders; read books and blogs, and invested in my self-learning.

Even after many years of managing and leading teams, I still notice a significant gap in the available training and coaching resources tailored specifically for managers. That’s why I am passionate about bridging that gap and supporting new and aspiring managers in their journey toward success.

Join me on this transformative journey and unlock your true leadership potential. Together, we will overcome challenges, embrace growth, and pave the way for your professional success.

Excel As A Manager Through Personalized 1-on-1 Coaching

1-on-1 coaching is ideal for growth and development because it offers personalized guidance to address your specific needs and goals. This coaching will enable you to enhance your management skills, grow your team and advance your career.

Client Success Stories

Working with Aparna has been an absolute game-changer for me as a new manager. When I first stepped into my role, I felt overwhelmed and struggled to prioritize my work effectively. With Aparna’s coaching, I learned effective time management strategies, how to delegate tasks efficiently, and how to communicate effectively with my team.

What truly impressed me was Aparna’s ability to tailor her coaching to my specific needs. She listened attentively, asked thought-provoking questions, and provided invaluable insights that were right for my situation. Her coaching style is empowering. She encourages me to take ownership of my growth.

I highly recommend Aparna’s coaching to new managers seeking to enhance their leadership skills and improve team performance.

I started my 1-on-1 coaching with Aparna to hone my skills to switch to an engineering manager role. But when the opportunities at my company didn’t pan out as expected, she immediately pivoted her focus towards guiding me on how to have difficult conversations with management and get promoted at work. She has gone above and beyond to review and provide feedback on promotion documents to help me sort out my career path at my current company. She has led me to find answers for myself by the way of asking directed and pointed questions that have helped me understand the reasoning behind my career choices better. Her emphasis on identifying strengths and weaknesses has helped me build a better understanding of my tools and areas of conflict. She is very kind and patient but also doesn’t shy away from being direct, which is a great quality of a coach.

I really enjoyed working with Aparna. I struggled with time management and prioritization before working with her. She helped me during my transition from a task-oriented position into a more strategic role. Aparna helped me come up with exercises and routines that were right for me and my working style. We also worked on having a more powerful presence in the workplace.
The best thing about Aparna’s coaching is the way that she is able to guide you to ask the right questions and dig deeper into things that are not currently working for you. I think she takes a customized approach for each client, working with you to find solutions that are best for you.
