Managers are heads of divisions in a company. Depending on the nature and culture of business the manager leads from the front to maximize efficiency and achieve organizational goals. With effective communication skills the manager plans and implements the company drawn policies through his subordinates.

The efficacy, outlook and output of the team solely depends on the Manager. The Manager needs to be up to date with the current market trends, relevant technologies and taxation laws in their specific fields.

Managers need to serve as the link to string the entire team. And keep them lubricated well to work together.

Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the staff individually and as a team is the pivotal role of a manger. Changing the dynamics, revisiting ideas, feedbacks to be constantly used as feed- forwards, motivating the staff proactively, appreciation and managing resources is the Managers responsibility.

There is a fine line between Managers and Leaders. Leaders create more leaders and it is left to a manager whether he would like to cross the line.

To understand more about corporate training and leadership, the essence of being a manager, the confidence, charisma and oratorical skills of a leader reach us at Tatvamasi to experience a tryst with Mr Praveen Saanker.

I Eat ..therefore I am / Nutrition

We are what we eat. We are what we speak. We are what we see. We are what we hear. We are what we touch. We are what we think. We are….

Descartes said “I think, therefore I am” and “I am, I exist,” mean the same thing. That’s Descartes philosophy and thinking is our being. ..a non-stop activity. Essentially according to the philosophy thinking was the foundation for knowledge but how each one of us thinks depends on our perceptions.

With thinking as the core of human intelligence all our actions are inter-linked based on our thought processes and the stimulus we receive.

Food and diet apply the same psychology. Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses nutrients, and the relationship between diet, health, and disease Based on our perception of taste we eat mindlessly (often times!) giving in to our wants, desires and temptations. We never pause to think how and where the ingredients are sourced from, the behavior of the person cooking, how the food is served, how palatable it is. Ultimately the equation of the food we eat is the sum total from the soil to the cooked dish to the digestion process.

Some things maybe in our control and some not. The choice of foods, to the way we perceive food and our relationship with food matter for health and wellness .How we address our food to the process of chewing plays an important role.  Nowadays it has become a fad and a matter of convenience to eat out or food bought from outside kitchens.  To the extent food porn is gaining popularity to entice our senses!.

A leader needs to be a comprehensive package with skills , intelligence and spontaneity. Man management is an art to ensure cordial and healthy relations are maintained in the workplace.

Communication – a leader should be able to communicate clearly , crisply and firmly. Communication both verbal and non-verbal has to be effective. He should be able to motivate and inspire a team by setting precedents and being a walking example.

Compassion – a leader needs to be knd and empathetic to understand the needs of the team . Whether family or personal obligations have to be met the leader has to have the capability to step in to assist the team.

Emotional intelligence –is a powerful tool and key component for leadership. Besides managing ones own emotions it is important for a leader to manage others emotions. Not succumbing to stress, taking decisions rationally, staying calm in challenging situations, responding instead of reacting and having a sense of humour are essential aspects in a leader.

Optimistic outlook – how do you perceive situations…negatively? Positively? To know every cloud has a silver lining should be the motto of a leader. Never feeling hopeless, because difficult times always lead to better days.

Fine tuning – the capability to fine tune team members and situations for the most desired outcome and  for the highest benefit of all .

Fight, Flight or Freeze –Psychological counselling

Wikipedia definition of Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat , which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events. Fear in human beings may occur in response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future threat perceived as a risk to body or life.

Fear, however is a vital response to physical and emotional danger — if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats.

Fear can be learned by experiencing or watching a frightening traumatic accident or a personal experience with someone close maybe family or friend. Children develop fears from parents for example, when parents make statements like “If you don’t behave boogie man will take you”. Or children are frightened  of darkness with statements like “ghost will be there” There are many common phobias like fear of cockroaches, spiders, heights, examinations, failure, dark spaces, public speaking etc with fear of death and future quite in the forefront.
Unrecognized and unaccepted fears, buried deep within the psyche, sabotage children’s creativity, self-esteem and relationships.

Some of the basic childhood fears which get carried into adulthood are:-

  • Fear of rejection and abandonment
    • Fear of being misunderstood
    • Fear of physical/sexual abuse
    • Fear of parental expectations

Parents too pass their fears of survival, not earning enough money, or not being able to support their family to their children. This in turn effects the child’s relationship with money as they grow up.  All these fears give birth to fear of being inadequate, insignificant, unloved, unwanted, disrespected, abused, ridiculed, ignored, or put down.

The insecurity developed from fears create panic and a feeling of victimhood inside children and adults alike.

Cognitive behavioural therapy addresses these issues by citing examples and practical lessons to change the thought process. Face the fear to overcome the fear of fear calls for strength which is possible through counselling sessions and building ones confidence levels.

The Road Not Taken 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;


Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,


And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.


I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.


Would you like to take the path less travelled  by?

Are you at cross roads ?

Would you like to investigate and explore your hidden talents?

Would you like to know what is your unique skill set prevailing?

Would you like to be fearless ???

One size does not fit all / Life coaching services

There is no one size that fits all.  We all come from different backgrounds and cultures   and find ourselves amongst varied situations and need to mix and match our responses based on the stimulus received.

Life and its flow maybe simple but it does get complicated based on our thinking and at times we even use our thinking process on behalf of others. In a sense we actually get tired by our own thoughts.

It is through the interactions, inter personal relationships, exchange and reciprocity  with our environment and surroundings we form our views, opinions, perceptions, associations, attachments and are thoroughly influenced by them. These maybe proper or improper which is essentially contextual. But if our views opinions do not resonate with the social gathering in general you maybe an exception.  So long as there is no anti-social behavior or radical thinking causing any form of discomfort or disturbance to anyone it may be normal. But if the behavior is otherwise, as in extreme it may need addressing. Radical thinking and behavior without reasoning maybe a result of a disorder.

Attention to individuals for extreme behavior is given by specialists in the field . Through an in-depth study of their behavioral patterns and influencing factors …… Causes are explored and appropriate remedies suggested.

The crux of the matter is sailing through life in a state of peace and happiness without hurting oneself to start with and without hurting, hindering, hampering another’s progress in life.

Connect with our psychologists in Chennai to get tuned in to your frequency to produce waves of synchronicity.

Yoga is a way of Life –Life Coaching

Yoga is a way of life. Yoga is being one with the divine.

Yoga is being promoted and marketed in different names and forms from power, hydro, air, rope, hot, Iyengar , Bikram, Vini, Yin, Kundalini yoga, etc.  Any genre of exercise   is a good way to start till it is formed into a habit and the seeds are sown to make it a controlled behavior. Gradually, subtle shifts in the mind and   increased energy levels, is witnessed besides changes in perspective.   Receptivity is improved considerably and resistance vanishes.

It has become a norm nowadays to enroll in yoga classes which are packaged in different names based on the style, techniques and agility of the teacher. Rolling out the mat for an hour for stretches and breathing exercises may lay the foundation for reaching a state of yoga.  However it needs to become a discipline and way of life to become a yogi.

To realize the divinity within us the practice becomes the modus operandi. There are many saints and sages who have written volumes on yoga however the most commonly known is the yoga sutras of Saint Patanjali.

Yoga, as mentioned, is to become aware or realize that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience.
Practice makes perfect. A steadfast approach and discipline of practicing the asanas and pranayamas is a way for pratyahara and dharana.  However this is not a linear process but subtly inter twined and inter linked. To be able to withdraw our sense perceptions from the outside world to the inner leads to conservation of energy. A concentrated effort results in sustaining and maintaining our demeanor.

Discipline, dedication, determination, devotion will lead to discernment. Being composed, calm relating with clarity, moderation and the ability to restore balance are the results of continued practice.

Yamas and niyamas are tools that pave the way for grace to flow.  These are ethical guidelines for a moral code of conduct. Effectively a to-do and not- to- do pointers

Our  view,s opinions, negative thinking ,strong belief  patterns ,sense perceptions, walls ,barriers ,fortresses that we build around ourselves slowly crumble and collapse.

Not to take things personally ,literally ,seriously

There is no one size that fits all.  7 billion people  inhabiting the universe…7 billion perspectives, opinions and views. Some may resonate with others and form cults and groups…some may not and form opposing or radical groups. ..some may just choose to not be associated with any group. ..some may just be….

This 7 billion can be reduced to just 7 in a family as a small unit for example.

It is through these interactions with family , friends, neighbors and others in the environment that are socialization process takes place. We imbibe the culture not only from the family but the community and the city we are brought up.  Our lifestyles , language , dress sense, body language, mannerisms, etiquette, food habits, are formed and inculcated into our behaviors . This naturally influences are mind set and intellect making  each one of us unique!.

With this at the core of the matter we find ourselves in play groups as children,  cliques as teenagers , office spaces during early adulthood and added family responsibilities after marriage and with onset of old age a newer setting. To be able to deal with the different situations, with different people of different intelligence and background, communicating effectively becomes the premise.. To be able to listen, speak and hold space comes with learning and maturity.  Shifts keep happening, perceptions keep changing with every experience, preferences and desires keep altering resulting in our evolution.

As and when we communicate and interact with others our sense perceptions absorb  and take in information that  gets  registered in our intellect and memory.  We react and respond accordingly. To be able to understand this is essential as it helps in not taking things literally, personally or seriously.
