Update: 10-Mar. 5:00 pm IST. I’ve received more than 290 high-quality applications. Please do not apply anymore. Submissions for 2020 are closed. If you wish you can register your interest for 2021. The Form link is at the bottom of this page.
Update: 9-Mar. 7:40 pm IST. I have already received over 200 applications. I have also made the shortlist already. Please do not apply anymore for life-coaching with me unless you have stellar credentials. I simply don’t have the time. My list is way beyond full. Those who have already applied, you’ll hear from me re the outcome of your request by the end of this week. If you apply from this moment on, I can’t promise a response unless your request stands out. My heartfelt gratitude for your love and trust in me.
Every now and then, I receive a request for life-coaching. These are usually from people who are at the pinnacle of their career but have hit a glass ceiling. What they know has brought them quite far in life but they wish to go further. In just three minutes (my usual meeting duration), I’m unable to offer them the guidance they seek. And whenever I’ve taken the time out to provide strategic guidance, they’ve often come back asking for more and saying it really helped them.
I’m a stickler for quality. Since 2015, I’ve taken all possible steps to filter out the kind and number of people I see. I feel that to reach out to everyone, I have my books, blog and YouTube channel. Plus, anyone can come and meet me at the ashram (using the meeting request form). Anyone in pain or undergoing a crisis in life gets to see me in person, at least once. But, what about those who are already operating at a certain level in their lives? These are the people who have worked very hard to be where they are and by definition, hold a lot of potential to make a difference to the lives of many more.
So, recently, I was traveling with someone — a loving and sharp person I’ve known for a while — on my flight to Delhi when he suggested that I give life-coaching a chance. I let the idea brew and the more I thought about it, the more I felt that the idea has merit. It will require me to take time out from my already very hectic schedule, but I think it’s worth it. For the simple reason: it’s a sheer joy to hold an intellectually stimulating conversation with an intelligent person; it’s a great feeling to guide someone who’s committed and disciplined in his/her life.
To that effect, I’m willing to give it a try. If you wish to seek one-on-one executive life-coaching with me then continue reading.
I would like to walk with you and help you navigate through your challenges so you may realize your ultimate potential. Though for this happen, you have to be operating at a certain stage in your life. Think of this as a masterclass and not kindergarten. Whether you are facing challenges in your personal, professional or business life, I’d like to help you by offering a different take on life and things in general. I have seen numerous times that smart people rapidly scale the heights of greatness with just a bit of guidance.
I’m not interested in being there for you just for a one-off question. Instead, this is a long-term commitment, at least one year, for achievers who are looking for lasting transformation. I may only take on a maximum of 12 people all up. We’ll stay in touch using video calls, emails, personal meetings, and private immersive retreats depending on what category I’m able to fit you in. Whatever you share will only ever stay with me. To tell you the truth, I don’t know what value you place on my time with you. Nevertheless, here are the details:
There are two categories of coaching:
a. Super: For high-potential, high-performance individuals. (Max 7 spots).
b. Elite: For peak-potential, peak-performance individuals. (Max 5 spots).
Coaching for the Super category will be in the form of:
1. One or two personal video calls every month. 15-25 min duration each depending on the topic/need or goal.
2. You will have my personal email access where you can email me twice or thrice a month depending on the urgency and importance of the issue you may be facing.
For the Elite category, you will receive life-coaching by way of:
1. Everything in the Super category above, plus:
2. If we agree beforehand and you represent a business/company, I may be open to the idea of conducting an annual 2-day private retreat on a topic that interests you (e.g. business strategy or meditation etc.)
3. A six-monthly or an annual 30-60 min long physical meeting at a mutually convenient location. (Usually, my ashram or elsewhere during my travels, even flights).
Since I have only 7 and 5 spots in these categories, if you are selected, you will hear from me within one week regarding the next step.
In case, I’m unable to accept your application, please don’t take it personally. Bear in mind, I’ve extremely limited time I can offer. So, I’ll be going with the top best seven profiles or so. In any case, you can expect to hear about the outcome of your application within ten days at the latest.
If we progress to the next step and before I take you on, if I haven’t met with you ever, we’ll need to do so (virtually or otherwise).
I love working with intelligent, focused and passionate people. Together, we can make this world a better place.
One last thing before you go ahead and apply. If you just want my presence as your guru in your life, then please do not fill out this form. You can see me at the ashram or many other events. Almost everyone who visits me at least gets to see me in a small group and some individually too. My only criteria for meeting people is based on the urgency and gravity of the issue they are facing. This application for life-coaching is an entirely different ballgame. It’s not for those who just see me as their guru but for those who wish to utilize my knowledge/wisdom to elevate their consciousness, to reach the next level in their lives. It’s not for everyone. See this as applying for the job of a CEO. I need to know who you are and what you seek before I can even tell you the next step.
If any question in the form makes you uncomfortable, please abandon the process, for that means we are not ready for each other yet. I can’t help you, if you are not willing to open up. It’s that simple.
Now, if you would like to apply for a spot, please fill out this form here.
Your responses will be kept eternally confidential.
