Kevin Kernhan - Sr. Vice President @ Toll Brothers
I’m happy to write this recommendation for BJ Jhaveri whom I engaged as my coach for the past few months through Better Up platform. BJ helped me work on my goal of enhancing my executive presence and influence. He connects well and understood my strengths and goals and provide right guidance and tools that I was able to utilize to better myself. He advised me to leverage my strengths of authentic communication for sharing my POV during interactions. During our sessions, he has guided me to combine my empathetic listening and recognition for enriching my conversation with clients. He is very authentic and is truly a great coach and mentor. All the Best BJ and will continue to stay in touch. BJ has encouraged me to further improve my communication style to inspire my team and many other professionals through my initiatives at work and in the community. I wish him the very best for continuing to impact more executives in the world.
Brinda Babu - Managing Director @ Accenture
I am pleased to write this recommendation for BJ from whom I took the executive leadership training program. BJ has immensely rich coaching experience in the tech industry. He provided introspective questions to help me and others to figure out the key aspects of real-life challenges and the approach to overcome those challenges. Same as others, his coaching experiences are very helpful to strengthen leadership effectiveness and employee engagement in the organizations. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in a senior role in a tech-driven industry as he is a rare combination of deep tech industry and coaching industry experience.
Wei Sun - Director of Engineering @ Okta
It's my pleasure to recommend BJ to anyone who seeks a leadership coach (even the highly successful ones) for enhancing their leadership effectiveness even further. BJ has helped me in assessing my strengths and how to leverage those strengths. More importantly, he has helped me to let go of my overused strengths and skills that are not relevant for my career, anymore.
BJ was a great sounding board, where he would patiently listen to the details, validate my thinking, challenge the angle from which I have approached a situation & offer new perspectives for me to consider if I were in a similar situation in future towards better success.
At the start of each session, he helped me reflect on the discussions from previous week and held me accountable for completing the tasks if any that I committed to doing. Thus he helped me move the needle in the forward direction by providing me with the needed feedback/ feedforward.
He uses a language in his communication that connects with the rational brain and also touches the emotional part of my brain. This stimulates critical thinking and figuring out systemic issues. Thanks BJ for being my 'thinking partner' in my journey!
Papitha Nagarajan - Head of SW Engineering, Portal OS @ Meta
Today was my last coaching session with BetterUp and my awesome coach BJ Jhaveri. Definitely mixed feelings as BJ and I have had such a great time collaborating on my personal and professional development. It's a sad departure...
...though the greatest skill he empowered me with is "how to fish". I now possess the knowledge and tools to further develop on my own. Self reflection and self assessment, working through the paradoxes of people management, and being disruptive with my soft skills.
Thank you BJ Jhaveri for all your wisdom, stories and laughter!
Brett Norris - Product Leader @ Collibra
I’m pleased to write this recommendation for BJ whom I hired as my coach to increase my effectiveness in leading my team. I’ve learned about intrinsic motivators and I'm putting the learnings to use when communicating with my team members. Through our sessions, I’ve explored the use of the MAP framework for engaging and motivating my team for higher performance. I enjoyed partnering with BJ on this journey and wish him the very best.
Ruben Lopez - Turnaround Team Lead @ Chevron
BJ has been my leadership coach for the last 6 months and I can't appreciate more how he enlightens and motivates my career and personal growth. No one could know how to be a good leader as they start a leader position. With BJ's help, the map is clearly outlined and there's always clarity on how and what. It has been immensely helpful to enhance my leadership presence and build great rapport with my clients, my boss, and my team. The most special part to me is his coaching allows me to grow into who I am. It's not a process to make me into a character but a journey to develop my own style of leadership. Under his coaching has made me feel more positive and confident for my career future and I'm looking forward to my next session!
Yuhan Wang - Sr. Experience Designer @ GRADIENT Experiential
I have great pleasure in recommending BJ for anyone who seeks a coach for their career growth. BJ has helped me in assessing my strengths and development areas for the next level. During our sessions, we partnered to co-create the path for enhancing my soft skills, amplifying some of the existing activities, and letting go of overused skills that are not useful for my growth. This evolution has allowed me to grow more self-confident in my potential and value, which has accelerated my career forward.
At each step, BJ provided me with encouragement, and at times nudged me in my uncomfortable zone. He provided stories and anecdotes to help me internalize the required change and commit to the micro-actions. I look forward to continuing this collaborative process with him to achieve my goals. Highly recommend individuals at all career levels to work with BJ to progress their skills, career, and dreams.
Tejal Naik - Clinical Lead @ Jefferson's Digital Technologies Team
I have had the honor and privilege of knowing BJ. He has been a mentor, a sounding board, and a personal advisor for almost 2 decades.
He is far and away the most caring and genuine individual I have had the pleasure of knowing. We have discussed so many topics and he consistently has a great idea to help create a perfect solution.
Now that he has ventured out on his own, all I can say to a potential individual or group considering his services is two words: Do It!
I promise you will get far more than whatever you spend. You will have a resource probably for the rest of your life you can call on anytime. And quite quickly, he will get you or your organization on a track for achievable success.
It is with sincere affection and respect that I am happy to write this testimonial for BJ.
Edward Colandra – Marketing Solutions Consultant, ex-Marketing Program Director @ IBM
BJ is someone I consider a trusted business partner. As the new CIO of Innovatix, I needed someone who could understand my needs, provide advice, and quickly return with effective solutions. BJ was that person for me. Over the years I've known him, BJ has proven himself dependable and reliable, and a person of the highest integrity. I look forward to working with BJ for many years to come.
Kevin Geoffroy - CIO @ Innovatix
Honest, to the point, and efficient. Highly recommend BJ.
Robert Frank - Chief Operating & Technology Officer @ Dynamic Therapeutic Services
I attended a workshop conducted by BJ on Understanding & Adapting to Behavioral Styles. It was quite an eye-opening workshop. It provided a roadmap for me to handle several challenging situations and people. Subsequently, I engaged BJ for a coaching engagement. BJ was helpful there too. BJ is an empathetic, compassionate and authentic coach. Our partnership explored various topics like executive presence, emotional intelligence, networking, using biofeedback for self management. It was great to partner with BJ in these two engagements. I wish him good luck in creating great impact in other's professional lives.
James Paul - Analytics & Product Management @ Facebook
I've worked with Career Coaches on many occasions, most notably after earning my Bachelor's Degree, my Master's Degree, and my Doctoral Degree. Thus, I've learned from experience that some Career Coaches are better than others. I've also learned how to tell the difference.
During the time BJ Jhaveri and I worked together, he did several things that exceeded my expectations. Of these, four are particularly noteworthy:
1. Enthusiasm: BJ was always happy, even enthusiastic, to meet with me. He never left me feeling like I was "just one more thing he had to do."
2. Attentiveness: BJ insisted that we use video conferencing for all of our meetings. One of his reasons for doing this was so that he could pay close attention to my body language and vocal tone. This enabled him to better perceive my true interests, as well as offer detailed feedback during our interview role play sessions.
3. Accessibility: We only met once a week, yet BJ was available to me 24/7 for questions, advice, and guidance. This additional commitment ensured that I was fully prepared for all meetings, and could continue moving forward rather than constantly stopping-and-starting to clarify things I had either missed, or misunderstood.
4. Staying In-Touch: As we ended our final session together, BJ encouraged me to stay in-touch, particularly if I had any other questions or concerns. This encouragement led me to feel that I had in fact built a relationship, rather than simply concluded a business transaction.
Thank you BJ!
John Obenchain, MBA, Ed.D, Sr. Instructional Designer, Global Learning @ Colgate Palmolive
BJ was able to help me figure out the next steps in my career. Our sessions covered everything from what my perceived skillsets are to where my interests lie. BJ's unique way of interlacing personal experience and anecdotes not only helped me figure out where I wanted to go but also how to get there. BJ helped me with every step of process.
He was able to provide me insights on how to prepare for each stage of the interview process from application through offer. Even after our sessions were complete, BJ was there for me and offered advice and a non-biased view on things.
Justine Chang - Technology Product Manager
I had the pleasure of engaging BJ Jhaveri as my coach, through BetterUp, for improving my leadership skills and increasing my ability to influence others.
He helped me understand the importance of authentic communication for building my leadership presence. We did brainstorming, perspective gathering, lateral viewing, and role-plays on various topics such as growing trust, managing direct reports, decision making amidst ambiguity, effective delegation, etc.
Through our various coaching sessions, I’ve figured out the path for my growth and progress to the next level. I highly recommend BJ as a coach to help you navigate your professional career.

BJ is a professional Coach. With different tools and hands-on exercise, he helped me understand the different perspective and aspect of my day to day work life.

With his friendly attitude and ability to put feet in someones' shoes, you will get a coach, you can approach anytime without hesitation.

It was truly a pleasure getting to know BJ and receive his coaching.

He was very encouraging and gave me a boost in my confidence. He validated many of the concerns I had while helping me focus on where my opportunities and strengths really are. It was a great opportunity to get to work with him and a joy seeing his smile on a regular basis.

As a career coach, BJ walked me through a sequence of step toward preparing me for my upcoming interview.

For the first time in my life, I’m clear about what defines my skill set, I have a very positive sense of my professional worth, and understand how to market myself. This has been a true life-changing experience. Thanks so much for everything you’ve taught me, BJ! I’m so glad we got to work together!

In addition, I gained valuable insight on how to address recruiters and headhunters in a favorable manner.
I am thankful to have worked with BJ as he is very supportive and the guidance he provided proved to be very successful.
Meredith Vinitsky – Ad Tech Professional
I‘ve had pleasure knowing BJ Jhaveri for close to a year and he has been one of the most outstanding community members I came in contact with. BJ has graciously joined the IT Industry Advisory Council at the Edison Job Corps to support both staff and students with his technical knowledge. In this role he has selflessly donated many hours of service from conducting custom career readiness presentations, conducting mock – up interviews with the students and giving them the opportunity for job shadowing and internships. He has been also advocating for the program to the media and members of congress. BJ continues to provide his genuine support to youth that due to their socio-economic background often not have the access to explore their true potential. BJ’s professionalism is exemplary, and he promptly responds to inquiries and communicates clearly. This recommendation does not cover the extent of BJ’s dedication and volunteerism but gives a small glimpse of a man who simply does what is right.
Monika Pankiewicz – Business & Community Liaison
I have worked with BJ now for just over 6 months and have found him to be very detail oriented. He can be counted on to deliver on any project assigned. He is a forthright and honest person and I am very happy to be working with him.

BJ is very articulate in explaining a technical solution as it relates to a business problem. BJ and his team helped our firm design a solution that allowed us entry into a vertical market space for our product. The solution was delivered on time and it was exactly what we needed!
Kris Oribabor, Managing Director @ Ehid Group
I have known BJ Jhaveri since 2010 and he is dedicated to quality fulfillment and a great experience for all of his clients. BJ is the operations head for AK Systems (and its affiliate eHealthcare Services), a provider of IT software development services. As operations head, he drives business development, engagement planning and project management. When we first met, I took special note of his personal commitment to getting every engagement launched for success. His quality process includes personally visiting every prospective client to make his own assessment of their requirements, work environment, culture and how success will be measured. The purpose of this investment is to affect a perfect fit between client and AK Systems. With a validated understanding of each prospect’s environment, BJ will make the selection of on-site candidates or off-site project team members to be presented. When the client adds new projects or changes its organization, BJ repeats his quality assurance process. No wonder that AK Systems receives a large amount of referral business. BJ is tireless in putting “first” a positive customer experience – every time – and his metrics for repeat business and referral business validate BJ’s skills and constant attention to total customer satisfaction.
Barry Wheeler, Sales Leader
I have met many brilliant people on my pilgrimage to Superperformance. I don't think I have ever met anyone with the level of understanding and insight that BJ enjoys.

I had the privilege to work with BJ for about a year but some of the things what I learned from him during that phase has a long lasting impression. I would like to share one of the unique idea what you had shared with me related to marketing my profile. We always try to tune the resume and add as much details as possible and have a short cover letter. But attaching a short recorded video with the introduction and few lines about who I am and what impact I can make once hired adds a tremendous value to the profile. BJ provided creative ideas and insights during my job search and later on for my career growth. He is a consummate professional with proven competence in career coaching.
