6 Months to Developing New Habits!
The way we think and act is a function of our deep rooted assessments about everything/everybody around us. These assessments are formed due to many reasons, some of which are our upbringing, society, education, practices amongst others. These ways of thinking and acting are our automatic behaviours, in other words they are our habitual ways of being. For example, when being responsible becomes a habit then there is no room for excuses or blame for a job not done!
To develop a habit we need to repeat a particular way of thinking and acting multiple times. When we do that, we condition our body to the new behaviour and then we don’t need to think before acting because our body has already learnt it. It’s like driving a car; after you practice it repetitively you can just go ahead and drive, you don’t need to think about the how’s.
In this coaching program, we will be focusing on changing our habits of thinking and acting in the world such that we become open to new possibilities and new opportunities in life.

What Is Somatics
‘Somatics’ in derived from a Greek word ‘somatikos’ , which signifies the living body in its wholeness. It relates to the physical body as well as the cognitive part of us.
Somatics are specific body practices that we can adopt so that we tap into this vast intelligence of our body, that can help us develop new awareness of what we love, what we are scared of, what we want and this awareness will help us develop habits of living which will in-turn help us have richer experiences at work and home to feel fully alive to life!

360 Degree Leadership Feedback
These are unlike the assessment tests conducted by organisations where multiple choice questions need to be answered.
The feedbacks are conducted by the participants themselves where they will reach out to relevant people (managers, team members, clients, family members) in their life and seek feedback about themselves.
This will reveal to them their own blindnesses and help them take steps to change these perceptions of people, if they find them relevant.
We will guide them on the process of conducting these feedbacks.
The first feedback is conducted within the first 1.5 months of the program.
The second feedback is conducted during the last month of the program.
