I’ve been privileged to have Sanjay at Leonnova Consulting as my coach. Not only did he provide me and my peers with very helpful insights during the (often challenging) assignments, he has also been of great value in inspiring me to deliver the best possible result.

Leonnova team brought insights and guidance to our regular team check-ins, and was a great champion of the work. Once our idea and plan was locked, they became a great cheerleader of our team's efforts going into the presentation development and delivery.

Throughout my time working with Leonnova Consulting, one thing I routinely appreciated was their complete passion for leadership and building a high performing team. Their team zeal for collaboration, fostering team engagement and always seeking a bright side is ever palpable, and the resulting enthusiasm infectious.

It might sound like an exaggeration, but collaborating with Haniyeh from Leonnova was absolutely the very best business decision I ever made. Her guidance and professionalism helped us implement a successful project management and risk prevention process as we conducted a massive software conversion project – the largest of its kind in Canada – that came in on-time and under budget. Without her, the project would have been a disaster.

The J&J Canada Finance team had Leonnova lead us through a customized negotiations training program, where they provided a variety of effective techniques to help the team better navigate client and business partner negotiations. Over the course of the training, relevant case-studies, personalized follow-ups and hands on coaching made the learning experience tailored to their needs and expectations. Lastly, the team appreciated that the frameworks taught were applicable across multiple professional and personal scenarios
