Executive Coaching is broadly defined as the coaching work that is undertaken with senior executives in order to help them improve their effectiveness in both their managerial capacity and in their present or ensuing leadership roles. Over the past six years, Hari has worked with founders, leaders and senior executives across diverse industry verticals such as technology, health, legal, arts and development sectors. He has also worked in partnership with leading coaching and OD consulting organisations in helping clients design and implement customised coaching programs that suits their organisational design. Core of his work in this space is in enabling mindset transformation through practices anchored in neuroscience, mindfulness, and yogic practices.
Team coaching is a process for developing teams to become more resourceful, harmonious, and agile while staying aligned with the organisation’s goals. Team coaching integrates and maximises the value of other team interventions and experiences to build long term capacity of the team. Hari facilitates team coaching sessions using evidence-based, scientifically informed adult learning frameworks and systemic processes. Some of the themes that can be explored in team coaching include:
Deep dive into understanding and making sense of the dynamics and patterns in the intra-personal and inter-personal relationship spaces using insightful frameworks and explorations. Relationship Coaching is for anyone who wishes to heal dysfunctional relationships and to nurture healthy, nourishing relationships in their lives.
LSP is globally acclaimed as a transformational problem-solving and strategic thinking methodology. It was formulated by best minds at LEGO® with the help of psychologists, researchers and experts in the arena of learning. Hari is certified in this method by the Association of Master Trainers under the guidance of Masao Ishihara, Managing Director of Robert Rasmussen and Associates Japan. Hari has also created a series of offerings called ‘Leela’ integrating the principles and method of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® with ideas from Yoga Sutras and Mahabharata archetypes.
Drama-based corporate training is a powerful change management tool that is at the same time fun and engaging for the participants. Drama-based learning initiatives help build a more sensitive, capable and involved workforce. The methodology used is rooted in intersectional pedagogies including tools of applied theatre and arts-based methodologies. These helps unpack diverse aspects of corporate leadership space and how they manifest in our interpersonal and professional spaces. Participants experience embodied and experiential learning that enables deep self-reflection.

The theme of the session can range from personal to the professional depending upon the need of the client. Hari has extensive experience in holding spaces for coaching conversations to individuals from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds. The 1-to-1 coaching space is one that is inclusive, diverse and healing for those seeking a personalised deeper engagement.
It was my privilege to have attended the deeply evocative team coaching sessions with Hari that focused on learning in an embodied manner. I found it to be a unique approach to experiential learning that unravels certain aspects of your personality as you grow and aspire to be a leader in a true sense.
Hari's insights on leadership in these sessions were thoughtful, incisive and clear. His experience spoke through his comments and clearly helped to reveal layers of leadership interactions, how to recognize yourself in various situations and stay clear of restrictive behaviours. I highly recommend these sessions to all those who are on the path of self-exploration, self-enquiry and identifying your blind spots.

Hari was the facilitator guide for the Swasthyam program by Ritambhara designed for executives with a combination of both Bahiranga (asanas designed for today's working person) and Antaranga (inner work) Yoga. Hari brought both expertise and compassion to the program - he shares his guidance understanding where you are coming from and responds in a way to build self-reliance in the practitioner. He has been very helpful in sharing individualised guidance and is someone who invokes trust through the way he engages with people. I am grateful to Hari for his guidance. The program helped tremendously to approach well-being in a holistic way using powerful time-tested Indic practices.
Head of OD,
I was going through a very confused and rough phase in my life when I was recommended to Hari by a friend. And although I had reservations about having online sessions, Hari made me feel comfortable and safe throughout with his calm disposition. His suggested breathing techniques and mindfulness excercise worked wonders which helped me overcome my concerns and anxiety I was facing constantly. His way of identifying underlying issues that I refused to see helped me look at the broader picture and gain more perspective about myself. Hari never failed to check up on me which made me feel safe and cared for. His expertise and patience are what anyone looks for while seeking help and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is going through a difficult phase.
