Last night we had a very interesting discussion. It was on, you guessed it, why are we one of the top 10 corporate training companies in India.
It all started with a session that was being conducted by us for one of our clients. It was on my all time favourite topic, Emotional Intelligence. This session was being held in a different format as it was a senior audience we were catering to and felt that we wanted to give them something that goes down a lot deeper. We didn’t want to make it a session typically run by corporate training companies in Mumbai or as a matter of fact corporate training companies in India. We wanted to do something different, something that would rattle the very core of every participant and make him or her think whether they were really doing justice to the emotions that keep bubbling up inside them.
I find it astonishing that pretty much all of us are at such a loss when it comes to dealing with our emotions. It doesn’t matter what position you are at in your organisation, what qualification you have or how much money you have in your bank account. When it comes to emotions, even the most intelligent of us (needless to say that the more intelligent you are the greater your loss in this department) fail miserably!
I too have been part of this clan all my life. In fact it’s only of late that I got some respite from being such an integral part of it. I was always the emotional fool who just had too much of sentiment and emotion. The worst part was that it would always come out at the wrong times and I really didn’t know how to control it.
As I kid I had realized that the only way to keep it under check was to keep it suppressed. Sounds familiar? That’s the strategy that we have all been using, isn’t it? It was only when I got introduced to Mindfulness that I realised that I was doing the exact opposite of what I should be doing!
Like the rest of my emotional brothers and sisters, I too ran to some top training institutes in India as well as some corporate trainers in Mumbai to find my answer. However I always came back with a void, with a question still answered. It always felt like there was something more which everybody was missing out. I had tried out so many of the things they had recommended but all of them had a very short term impact. None of them had the permanency that I was looking for.
This desperate desire and relentless effort finally led me to the answer that I had been searching for all my life. In fact this long drawn search is the very reason that sets us apart from many other training and consulting companies in India.
The difference comes from the experiences you go through life and how you deal with the pain that comes along with them. It made us search until we found something that really worked for us and in the bargain go through a range of techniques that are currently in the training market. It eventually landed us with something that had the power to transform our entire being and connect us to the superpower that we were. That something, that had the power to give us back the power that we have given off to our minds and allowed it to rule over us and make us miserable. That something, that took us deep and allowed us to connect with and understand all those around us. So what made the difference? Having lived through the grilling experiences of life, learning from them and then standing up strong to be able to help not only ourselves but also all those around us.
So now you know our secret of being one of the top 10 corporate training companies in India. We are truly the horses and what you hear from us is coming directly from the horse’s mouth!
