Tao of the Coach-Leader

… deep dive into Coaching, Facilitating & Leading

The last program from 9-12 Feb was a moving experience. With a few gifted CEOs, inspiring Leadership Coaches and enthusiastic people creating together a rare learning experience.

Let us explain why we are calling this an unCertification. Simply put, this is not in opposition to Certifications. It honours them and yet invites people into an adventure beyond. What is this beyond?

1. We want to create a way that each of you engage as deeply as you want to – from tasting coaching, to doing coaching, to teaching coaching (building your own model based on the song of your being and doing) and finally co-creating it.

2. There are aspects that are radical in the sense that it puts the shoulds of great Coaching in their right place and also urges you to question them and be free of the burden of rules.

3. Essentially the hierarchy between a Coach and Coachee is relaxed so both can learn together from a place of trust and vulnerability and it is seen that the true Coach is the present moment.

4. The invitation to Awakening, a place of freedom beyond opposites is at the heart of this. So it’s about waking up and growing up. 😎

Learning is at the very heart of Living. And indeed the essence of a successful Business or any human endeavour. And yet, ironically most businesses struggle to create a culture conducive to learning. Learning arises from leaders inspiring everyone to learn together. Discover in this four day journey

– How can we rediscover leadership & life as learning & inspiring each other?

– How can we be more open as a leader? (As humans, our core beauty and our core pain and struggle are in the area of Relationships. How can that be learned and taught?)

– How practical and possible is it for leaders in business for any of us to truly learn? Are we willing to be human and vulnerable? (It requires us to not “know” and discover what is true and empowering to all in the present).

A wise being expressed this with a simple eloquence, “While it is your greatness that they seek as a leader, it is your human-ness that allows them to access it”

The Tao programs create an environment that is conducive to leadership transformation and deep learning. The main approach is a unique synthesis of life-changing paradigms called Radical Coaching,..learning together in friendship.  (click on Radical to see more)

Testimonials

“Our senior people who have attended Kiran’s workshop have benefited greatly by it, as have I personally. The workshop is deep yet practical, offering a mirror to see your own abilities …
Going through a series of exercises (experiences), I was able to easily identify rough edges in the way I was relating to people. I have noticed distinct improvements and I have no hesitation in recommending Kiran’s program to any leader or aspirant.”

– Sudhakar Ram, when Chairman & Group CEO, Mastek

“Kiran Gulrajani is a gifted human being. He has the unique ability to sense the ‘blocks & presuppositions’ that are preventing an individual’s progress towards his cherished goal. Moreover, he is truly gifted in the art of deep listening. This allows him to magically open doors that seemed shut tight. This ability makes him an exceptional life coach.
I have had the privilege of working with him individually as well as with a few clients. Every time with great results.”

– Shreekant Gupte
CEO Coach

“Would love to join (again). Working with Kiran has been a life-changing experience for me. The sincerity of the approach, the willingness to approach reality in its nakedness and rebound from there into the realm of life, the desire to include and involve and engage and inspire anyone participating so that they not just take part but co-create… there is a deep commitment to everyone‘s greatness and this greatness being revealed… Now we are working together and the sparks, every time the opportunity presents itself.”

– Ludovic Odier (Based out of Singapore, Ludo runs a successful outfit to build teams and manage events, now inspired to build leaders and co-creative ecologies)
