About Catalyst

About Catalyst


Financial Services Executive and Management Consultant, USA"

I originally reached out to Manisha [Shaikh] to take Hogan assessments and related executive coaching sessions. My experience with her has been both enlightening and smooth. She blends years of corporate leadership experience with a refined understanding of human behavior and a deep passion for helping individuals. 


Manisha is good at reading her audience and tailoring her feedback to give tough love when needed, but also empathy and encouragement to motivate them to change. One of the things that impressed me the most is how she handled my questions on the many contradictory findings of Hogan assessments and tie them together into a "behavioral whole" that were "a-ha" moments for me once she explained them. At no point did I feel judged or sensed irritation. I have enjoyed our coaching sessions, and am looking forward to continuing my development journey with her. 


I am confident that you will also find her to be a very good coach and partner whether you are in a corporate or small business setting. 


Senior Manager HR, Wurth-IT

We are very thankful to Manisha for an amazing custom-made Management Development Program carved for our employees at Wurth IT. The methodology and the process was very scientific and powerful.

The participants had a lot of take-aways from each session which equipped them to manage the teams effectively. The best part of the program was that it was designed as a journey and certain concepts were added to cater to emerging business needs. This made the sessions very meaningful to participants and business at large. We wish Manisha & the entire Catalyst team all the best and much success !


HR Wockhardt Hospitals,

It was a truly enriching experience working with the Catalyst Trainer Manisha as her sincerity and commitment towards the project came across right from the beginning (training needs identification) up till the evaluation phase. The course content and tools were customised as per our needs, which is extremely critical for a skill-based program. It would be a pleasure to work with her in the future –



I have worked with Manisha In Vodafone Maharashtra & Goa Circle for the Call Center and backoffice team members on two workshops namely Effective communication & Written Communication .Manisha has been a good facilitator and delivered the programme as per the expectation we set.

The training objective set was met and Manisha took time to collate Voice of the Customer (VOC) and understand the participant type to conduct a seamless training.Manisha connects well with the participants of whichever training she undertakes.The results post workshop have been good.


CEO, Legacy Lifespaces

Our HR consulting mandate was clear from the get-go when we partnered with Catalyst; ‘Build people processes that impact productivity yet maintain the our inherent people centric culture’. Right from working with the Directors to the employees, Michelle and Manisha helped, guided and mentored us to change our approach by looking inward at our strengths and improvement opportunities.
Some of the HR & OD related changes involved rolling out our organization structure, creating job descriptions, performance management and reward & recognition frameworks.


The trainings conducted by Manisha were impactful while fun, the learning was immense, the Individual Executive Coaching sessions with the Senior Management Team were super helpful, we as Directors found our strengths that even led one of our directors to find her true calling and exiting to follow it while bringing in another Director who was a great success in the company. Michelle was extremely straightforward and clear in her one-on-ones during performance appraisals and also helped us map compensation and skill of the market to that of the employee and advise us accordingly.

I would like to thank you for helping bring role clarity among the Directors leading to our unity towards a common goal. You both are a blessing to the Legacy family and we never felt that you were consultants, more like you were one of us to the extent of treating me as your younger brother whose success you cared for.
