I focus on creating liberating mindsets and drive for bringing meaningful change to self, others and the larger world. I create and hold spaces where people can learn, love, laugh.
I bring to my work my whole being in terms of courageous vulnerability, authentic confrontation and connection, creative expression and action–orientation. I believe living my own potential inspires others to live theirs.
I was a business leader in corporate sector for 15 years before shifting in 2006 to being a facilitator and coach. I worked in diverse role as a Profit Center Head, Global Account Management, Business Strategy and Operations Consultant. Corporate Planning and Supply Chain management. I lived and worked in US and India during these times.
A personal mission since early 2018 has been a public program “Take 2 – Taking Big Leaps in Life and Ventures”. Take 2 focuses on self–authoring life and work to our deepest yearnings. I contribute to the profession of OD by teaching OD and mentoring OD professionals. I mentor start– ups to build human capital even as they build economic value. A personal journey of exploring gender dynamics, has led me to now holding circles of men for inner journeys of becoming more agentic, sensitive and responsible.
I am a graduate in Chemical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur and an MBA from IIM Bangalore. Writing poetry, amateur singing, Playback Theatre, cooking and physical fitness are my outlets for expression and personal care. The role that I enjoy most is being a father to 2 daughters and a son (19, 15 and 4 years) from my 2 marriages. I have made Bangalore my home.
