What Clients Say

Stranger to Myself

Stranger to Myself as part of the IIM Shillong behavioural sciences lab not only provoked me to introspect and reflect but also enabled me to take the skills forward for my personal growth and development. I feel humbled by the efforts Dr Deshmukh and the team put in for the smooth facilitation and design of creative activities which helped during the exercises. I am confident that the learnings from this session changed the way I look at myself and my circle around. Thank you once again and looking forward to attending more such sessions under your guidance.

Vineet Arora

Stranger to Myself

“My first session with Mahesh Sir at IIM Shillong took me back to the roots of introspection, those things/strengths in your mind you forgot they exist. Sometimes you struggle to get inspiration and you get so desperately trying to find the next big idea that you forgot how simple it is. Mahesh Sir’s sessions helped to remind me how easy is to reboot your imagination and that the world around you is an infinite source of ideas and inspiration to relax, clear your mind and create. I loved all the exercises and re-discoveries I made in myself. A great transformational experience that helped me in my future journey.”

Towards Mastery

A transformative experience triggering self-awareness as a coach. The program clearly outlines the nuances of coaching mind set, skillset and toolset. Truly unique are the accomplished facilitators who take you through individualized learning journey while also sharing the best practices.

Principal Partner, KPIT

Towards Mastery

Mahesh has unique abilities to make you realise the competencies to become a mindful coach …. His total 'presence' during the entire course actively helped me discover my own learning needs as a coach. He demonstrates powerfully not only what you need but how to get it 'here and now'… it was an amazing experience for someone like me from non HR background.
