Are you tired and stressed and unable to get the amazing people you have to work together as a team

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

As a serial entrepreneur, I know! That can be extremely exhausting. 

And frustrating – to not be able to spend time with familyOr to simply relax and let go once in a while…

Is there a lot of chaos and a lack of short-term and long-term clarity in your team? 

Is your team stuck in low energy and disengaged?

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

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

Do you want others in your org to step up as leaders as well?

Are you tired of being the only one responsible?

    How Does It Work?

    3. 1-on-1 coaching for team members as and when required. 
    4. I show you the mirror by partnering and gently provocating you to show you what you are not able to see on your own.

    6. Actionable frameworks, checklists, and models for building trust, making decisions, and dealing with breakdowns.

    Why should you trust me?

    You can trust me because:

    1. I am already supporting entrepreneurs like you – right now!
    2. I have learned my lessons the hard way. You do not have to.
    3. I have been a serial entrepreneur. I have risked and lost a lot.
    4. I have been scared, confused, lost, and insecure
    5. I have invested over 13 years and counting in my personal development and coaching.
    6. I have researched human behaviour and leadership from multiple perspectives – psychology, neuroscience, systems thinking, philosophy, and eastern wisdom.
    7. I have interviewed and learned from hundreds of founders & CEOs.
    8. I host a podcast, give public talks and guest lectures in business schools, and my first book on leadership will be published soon.
    9. I practice and put to use everything I share with you in my own life. I live by example.
    10. I fail and make mistakes. I am not perfect. I admit when that is the case.
    Why do you need this program?

    I can not answer this question for you. Only YOU can do that.

    Do you know a sports team or top athlete without a coach?

    The business world is waking up to a fact people in sports have known for decades – an external and objective trusted advisor can see and suggest what you can not on your own.

    A coach for your team can help you access those levers of performance which can produce massive exponential results. Think about increasing productivity by 10x or 20x, not 20-30%. 

    Do you want someone like that in your corner? 

    I have had a coach for the last 12 years – I love having someone who believes in me and holds me accountable to a bigger vision

    Successful people benefit the maximum from coaching because nobody tells them what they most need to hear. My job is to SERVE you, not to PLEASE you – by telling you just that.

    What am I promising?

    I promise that:

    1. Working with me will change the trajectory of your organisation.
    2. Your team will learn to relax, smile, and have fun even while facing bigger and tougher challenges in your life.
    3. Everyone in the team will begin to show up as leaders who take ownership, responsibility, and work as ONE unit.
    4. You will understand what it really means to be committed and what is possible when you show up with that commitment
    5. Everyone will know their role in the team and will be proud of making a contribution to team success. 
    6.  You will experience and learn what it means to be “present”, and what it means to Deploy Yourself as a “leader
    7. You will want to spend more time with me, even if parts of spending time with me are challenging, provocative, and uncomfortable.
    8. The world you live in will change completely, not because the world changed, but because YOU changed and shifted so massively.
    What are my requirements?

    Here is what I require from you (non-negotiable):

    1. Make our time together the most important. Not because you are working with me, but because we are going to fully commit to your life.
    2. Be on time. Do what you say. Stay in communication when things do not go as planned.
    3. Be open and coachable. Be willing to hear different perspectives. Especially those you might not want to hear.
    4. Practice & give it time. This is not just about intellectual understanding. 
    5. Be willing to be compassionate with yourself and take this journey with lightness.
    How much is the investment?

    This program will be personalized to the specific needs and expectations of your organisation. 

    They pack a lot of value and your investment will range from €40,000 – €150,000.

    My invitation to you is to take at least 10 times the value of your investment in the program. 

    The work I do is priceless and life-transforming. I intend to serve you so powerfully that you see this investment as your best in life so far. 

    Game on! Wanna play? 

    How much time will this take?

    Each participant will need to spend around 1 to 1.5 hours per week learning and practicing what they learn in the program. 

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

    In 3-4 months, by practising what you learn, your team will be able to save more time than they spend with me.

    So overall, this will save you time. 

    The APC Model - We will work at three levels

    Your ACTIONS

    Learn to see with clarity, separate fact from fiction, build new conversational skills, and make powerful offers and promises. This is what we do (or don't do). At this level, all work gets coordinated.


    Presence is the quality of our being. It includes our moods, emotions, energy, and body. Learn to listen so deeply that you build trust, camaraderie, and a sense of serenity just by your presence.


    Identifying what we (and others) most deeply care about allows us to create better teams, well-being, and results. Unlock and create creativity and teamwork where once was stress and confusion.

    Who am I?


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

    What most people know about me is that I have spent 20 years doing software, started 2 for-profit and 1 non-profit organisation, and have spent 9 years doing photography.

    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. 

    Every team needs someone they know they can count onI am that person!

    I combine my experiences as a techie, engineer, 3x entrepreneur, author, public speaker, a leader in companies like Yahoo and, and as a poet and photographer – to help leaders merge the science of doing business with the art of leadership.

    What others are saying?

    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.

    Ashutosh Nandwana - Founder, Share A Smile Foundation India

    "Sumit quickly understands exactly what I’m going through each time I try to explain it. Since working with Sumit I am in a much more calm, confident, and positive place. 

    I feel much less burdened than I did before and genuinely excited to improve my personal integrity and take on the uncomfortable tasks that I have avoided for years due to the weight of all of what I had been carrying emotionally. "

    Carson Green – President at CyGen Technologies, Inc.

    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.
