“From the moment I heard Sristi’s voice, I sensed she was an ambitious, dynamic person. She was friendly, open and we had a delightful rapport.
There were so many ideas bubbling in her head, combined with plenty of obstacles and some limiting beliefs.”

We believed that coaching, which is an effective tool for leadership development in the corporate world, was the ideal solution to empower Sristi and her team at Blind Rocks!
The success of the coaching sessions encouraged us to explore and put in place a wider, more extensive and multi-layered structure.
When Sristi K C, the founder of Blind Rocks!, an NGO in Nepal that supports the empowerment of blind people, approached us with a wish list of support services that would enhance her leadership impact, improve her project’s operational efficiency and enable its growth, we saw an opportunity for trialing coaching as a volunteered activity. It is after all better to teach one to fish than to feed them. We believed that coaching, which is an effective tool for leadership development in the corporate world, was the ideal solution to empower Sristi and her team at Blind Rocks!.
Pearl Panthaki, a highly experienced corporate executive coach and NLP practitioner, volunteered to coach Sristi on her leadership impact. A structured coaching program for an initial 6 sessions was agreed upon and ran from August to October 2019.
“Our first task was to identify her goals and then break them into short, medium and long term goals. We then broke each goal into a 30, 60, 90 day road-map.’ Pearl reported about her early sessions “We also worked on her communication skills. Clear thinking translates to clear speaking. I showed her a simple technique using a pyramid format that she could use to structure her thoughts. This proved valuable when she delivered her Ted Talk last year.”
The success of the coaching sessions encouraged us to explore and put in place a wider, more extensive and multi-layered structure for coaching which would enable Sristi and her team at Blind Rocks! improve their operational effectiveness and project representation as they work towards achieving their annual and long term goals.
We met our coaches just when we needed them the most. This mentorship and support have helped us systematically structure our activities and day to day work plans.
“I used to feel that our organization Blind Rocks! had a handful of work in progress, projects and schedules in line, but we were not happy with the output. We knew there was room for improvement and what we were doing needed a lot of professionalism.
We met our coaches just when we needed them the most. This mentorship and support have helped us systematically structure our activities and day to day work plans. It has helped us analyze our problems and showed us our gaps, which helped us brainstorm for ideas to make our existing plans better and successful.
The wisdom that our mentor has imparted has taught us to celebrate every milestone and given us the impetus us to move forward. We have learned to formulate effective structured plans, branding, networking and have been able to make progress overall. Having the opportunity to learn has made sustainable change in our organization.
We highly appreciate the coaching that we are receiving from Dragonflies Everywhere and cannot thank our mentors enough for helping us see a better and clearer future for our organization, to achieve our goals and to make a difference in our community.”
