नमस्ते मैम , हरमीत और निमिषा मैम का काउंसलिंग सत्र बहुत ही अच्छा था उन्होंने प्रज्ञा की आगामी तैयारी पर काफी बारीकी से बात की। उनके सुझाव काफी सटीक थे । उनके सुझावों को ध्यान रखते हुए मुझे अपनी बच्ची के भविष्य निर्माण में मदद मिलेगी। साथ ही मैं अल्मा मेटर स्कूल को बहुत धन्यवाद देना चाहती हूं जिन्होंने इतने जानकार लोगों के साथ सत्र रखा।,Praghya's mother Sandhya Gupta

"Really thankful"
Read More
We were quite worried about guiding our son, who is in class X, about the path ahead. The reason was simple - he's bright but quite convinced that he doesn't wanna become either an engineer or a doctor. And every month, he would come up with a different option to pursue, adding to the dilemma. That's when we got connected with Harmeet and the Fermata team. Over the next 3 weeks, they spent a lot of time understanding us and our predicament. One of the best things was that they didn't jump to any conclusions. They followed their process which allowed the child to express himself and also share his fears and dreams. With the expert advice of Dr Richard, our son started to grasp the meaning of the choices he had to make. Finally, he chose what made most sense to him. He wants to keep the options of law and management open for himself. Not only is he at peace with his choice, but so are we, as parents. What the future unfolds, none of us know. But at least, we have a plan and we've reached there with due introspection under specialized supervision. Really thankful to the team at fermata for their support and kind guidance.

My first interaction with team Fermata was when my daughter had to choose the stream in class 11th. Discussion with Ms. Harmeet and the psychometric analysis undertaken by her helped in firming up this decision. We again sought their professional help when my daughter was applying to various Universities, for undergraduate programs in India as well as abroad. Ms. Harmeet and her team provided very useful inputs on what the Universities are looking for and guided on how to organize information. What I found most special about them was that they very patiently interacted and guided my daughter how to do things herself rather than giving readymade solutions. We were very happy with the outcomes of this interactive process. We further sought their guidance to prepare for university admission interviews. Overall I found them to be very knowledgeable and experienced and professional in their approach.

I commend Umaa to Corporates, Startups, Family driven ventures or aspiring individuals to seek her guidance enroute to joining the vital dots; all this while positioning themselves distinctly different amidst clutter. That to me is the real value addition that Umaa can create in the ecosystem around her ! That in many ways is also a testimony of her approach to humbly reciprocate with her trademark uniqueness quotient.

‘The counselors helped me in a structured way to understand myself better and make a list of my career aspirations. Their step-by-step methodology, along with a lot of patience and professionalism helped me in narrowing down my career choices to two options from my list of aspirations and desires. We interacted through both online and offline modes and the online mode was equally interactive and warm as the offline mode. I thank them for the career guidance and for helping me to believe that my current qualifications will always be relevant in whatever I choose to do in my life.’

"Experiencing Positive Results"

I have known Umaa since half a decade now.

I met Umaa at Reciprocity (An empowering forum for entrepreneurs) and through our engagement sessions, I got an opportunity to see the value behind what she does as a coach.

Umaa’s superpower is her ability to listen with patience and intent. Her expertise in organizational psychology and her experience as a coach enables her to empower organizations to deliver better outcomes.

During our conversations together she gave raring ideas on “How to make Expedify a Kickass place to work at” one of our Organizational Objectives.

We are currently measuring and executing them and are experiencing positive results. I would highly recommend Umaa for an organization focussing on employee growth and development. ( Digital Media firm Founder)

I did not realize the importance of good mentors while running a start-up until I met Umaa Arun,The second phase dealt with investment readiness and Umaa Arun helped me assess my current standing very well and shared pointers for improvement. I worked on her suggestions with respect to what investors look for while investing in startups and set up my long-term and short-term goals accordingly. I strongly recommend young entrepreneurs looking for strategic advice and investment readiness to connect with her and other mentors who can be good advisors to avoid mistakes before approaching investors. Thank you so much ma'am for your constant support! 💛 (Entrepreneur, Sustainability, Climate Impact)

There are very few conversations in your life that you find worthy of replaying again and again in your mind, and then there are fewer ones that make you want to 'do' something more...

Conversations with Umaa Arun were exactly that way!!! I thank you wholeheartedly for such an amazing mentoring session, the extra time and effort that you put in with us, and the deep insights which have helped us tremendously… ( Experiential Educator, Entrepreneur)
