EVERY entrepreneur, CEO/ organizational leader, or astute professional hoping soon to arrive there, and worthy of such a title, aspires for exalted leadership success, ALONG with personal fame, contentment, and self-realization. My approach is designed to help (a) CEOs and entrepreneurs to advance leadership success with holistic personal fulfillment, and (b) to accelerate ascent of V.Ps / directors with the potential for the top position

MY ‘UNDER THE SKIN APPROACH’, conceives leadership as powerful innate drive to take the responsibilities of changing the directions of developments or events to deliver results. The strategies and decisions of the leader, though apparently rational, are all coloured by his ‘inner’ needs or driving forces, his life goals and fantasies, though he is generally not aware of them. One of my objectives is to facilitate the client to develop insight within his inner self, separating external and internal forces, bringing about mature objectivity in strategy and decision making. The other important facet of this leader development process is identifying and synergizing his life goals and his leadership role, as incongruence in two impedes achievement of both. The self-insight and objectivity gained leads not only to higher leadership effectiveness, but also to better personal adjustment and relationships, by replacing earlier unproductive behaviour patterns with more productive ones. Similarly, harnessing of the identified unique driving forces within and the innate capabilities leads to achieving sense of personal fulfillment, joy, and realization of full potential

The end result of this leadership development process is enhanced relationship with subordinates, superiors and at lateral levels, better decision making process, and exalted organisational / leadership success, attaining one’s unique position in society, and the holistic self-realization

PROCEDURE: normally, it would take anywhere between say 5 to 8 sessions of about one and half hours each, with gap of few days between the sessions.
