Led by Sumit Gupta

Serial Entrepreneur and Trusted Advisor/Coach to CEOs

“The best way to find answers to your biggest challenges is to ask yourself how are you creating them in the first place.”

Reinvent Yourself. Say Hello to the new YOU!

Who is this Accelerator for

Are you a driven leader or entrepreneur who knows that there is more to you than your current level of success?

Are you unsure if you have got what it takes? Do you feel insecure?

On top of it, are you so busy that you have no time and energy to do anything about it?

I have been there. I know! That can be extremely exhausting. 

And frustrating – to simply be able to relax, enjoy and let go once in a while…

Is there a lot of chaos and a lack of clarity? Are you doing a lot and yet unhappy with your progress? 

Are you stuck and do you keep on facing similar challenges as a leader?

Do you already realise this is not sustainable? Or, are you afraid to admit that?

Are you open to being challenged and reflecting to reconsider your ideas?

If your answer to the above is YES, you have come to the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't attend the live sessions?
It is mandatory to complete the homework and attend the live coaching sessions. (also see requirements question below)

If you do not complete the homework, you can not join the next session.

If you miss 3 sessions in a calendar year for any reason, you will be removed from the accelerator.

Having said that, all session recordings with chat transcripts and anything you might need to absorb and implement the learnings will be made available for you to (re)watch.

How much access to Sumit will I get?
This is an Active accelerator, not Passive. We will be fully hands-on, like in a DOJO

Sumit will host and lead all live coaching sessions. 

You will have access to Sumit via an online membership community to ask any questions, share your challenges, or celebrate milestones.

You will also practice what you learn with your peers who will support your journey in a safe space of smaller groups. (without Sumit’s presence)

What are you promising?
If you participate fully, I promise that:

  1. You will learn to relax, smile, and have fun even while facing bigger and tougher challenges in your life.
  2. You will begin to show up as a leader who takes ownership in every aspect of your life.
  3. You will understand what it really means to be committed and what is possible when you show up with that commitment.
  4. You will receive my direct, honest, and most-candid feedback – with love. I will show up to SERVE you and not to PLEASE you.
  5. You will want to spend more time with me, even if parts of spending time with me are challenging, provocative, and uncomfortable.
  6. You will see things that you had never seen before – about yourself, others, and circumstances.
  7. The world you live in will change completely, not because the world changed, but because YOU changed and shifted so massively.
What are your requirements?
Here is what I require from you:

  1. Attendance at all coaching sessions is mandatory. You can miss a maximum of 3 sessions each year.
  2. Be on time for all sessions. Those arriving late will not be admitted unless previously communicated and agreed upon.
  3. 24 hours before each session, you will submit homework consisting of
    1. your greatest insight since the last session, and
    2. submitting a question you would like to be coached on. 
  4. If you do not complete the homework on time, you will not be admitted to the next session.
  5. Be fully present in each session without any distractions or doing anything else at the same time. Keep your video ON unless you have bandwidth issues.
  6. Be open and coachable. Be ready to be challenged & hear different perspectives. Especially those you might not want to hear.
  7. Be respectful of each other. Do not coach or advise others in the group. Maintain confidentiality at all times.
  8. Practice what you learn & give it time. This is not just about intellectual understanding. 
  9. Be compassionate with yourself and have fun along the way.
Do you have a guarantee?
Yes. After coaching for over a decade, I know this works.

So if you 1) attend all of the live sessions, 2) complete all of the exercises & 3) ask questions when in doubt and still don’t believe that the accelerator is valuable, we’ll refund your full investment, no questions asked.

What is the expected time commitment?
Each participant will need to spend around 2-4 hours per week learning and practising.

It is only through practice and repetition that you build and embody new skills and habits.

In 2-3 months, by practising what you learn, you will be able to save more time than you spend.

So overall, this will save you a LOT of time. 

Who am I?

 

Often, the most challenging story to tell is your own.

What most people know about me is that I have spent 15+ years leading tech and AI teams at Yahoo and Booking, started 2 startups & 1 NGO, and am a CEO coach since 2021.

What most people don’t know about me is that I have spent a lifetime staying invisible. I have used my computer and camera as tools to hide behind. 

I was told I couldn’t become an engineer, leader, photographer, or coach. Worse, I have told myself that many times!

But I chose courage and have reinvented myself multiple times. I am here to do the same for you. I teach what I wish I had for myself growing up.

I am also a son, a father, a husband, a podcast host, a photographer, and a guest speaker at companies & business schools.

See what people are saying

My biggest fear whilst working in change-making and gender was on feeling less vulnerable financially and individually, by virtue of running a hybrid social enterprise. I’ve since then been tangibly able to take action to make me feel at ease and deal with the fear of being alone and susceptible to shocks due to financial stressors.

I also am able to breathe at the moment on constant support from the peer group and the coaching on being in the today and doing what is within my power and control, expanding my choices, by shifting from a fear-based approach to action in incremental steps.

Sumit’s proactiveness to help at every request moves me. He makes connections swiftly, gives feedback judiciously on applications and is a huge moral support at times I’m daunted. Sumit helps me believe I am not alone, and that I am valuable and supported.

In the last few years, my biggest challenge has been around those who I believe had more economic privilege than me. I had put economic power at a higher pedestal that stopped me from creating a relationship of equals.

This also impacted my confidence and the resource generation I do in my role as founder of Share A Smile Foundation India.

I have now been able to identify my patterns and have been able to initiate action to break it. I have made a promise to raise 1.5 crores in the next year for Share A Smile Foundation.

In this journey of group coaching with Sumit, I have been also able to develop a strong support system for myself. Thanks to Sumit for creating this beautiful space for us to learn and grow. I have also started believing it is possible to grow 10x.
