Do you feel tired of being Run by Your Day's Priorities in life? 

Have you ever felt like you have no control over your life and simply had to accept whatever life or others threw at you and just "go with the flow"?

Are you in your early 20's 30's or 40's and feel like your work day or job dictate the quality of your personal life and relationships?

Do you often wonder "Is this all I'm capable of doing in this lifetime?" or "What is My True Purpose in Life"? or "What was I born to do beyond just the 9 - 5 Job"? 

Maybe you're a student in high school or college, and are asking questions on what direction you should go in life? Intimidated by the flurry of advice and pressures of family and friends.

Do you often wish you'd like to take control of your health, have more time to travel, start a blog or cut a CD or a Radio Show but just can't seem to find the time to sit down, plan and set things in motion?

Do you have a list of Passion Projects or Creative Things you'd Love to work on outside of your job or work life - But simply dont know how to make time for it? Or may be you have the time and dont know how or WHERE to begin?

Are you someone who find it difficult to keep your attention levels up for a longer period of time? Do you suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD / ADHD)?

If you answered YES to any of the above - You need not worry. You are Not Alone!

Hi My Name is Kamlesh (call me Kam) and I am a Program Manager in the Software Industry with a Software and IT Enabled Services background. I am also a Coach, Author and Consultant. Having worked in some the most demanding job roles and high performance companies that shape the world, I have seen first hand at many levels and personally experienced extremely high levels of workplace distraction, dysfunction, haphazard shifting of priorities, rampant work-life imbalance, the resulting impact on one's own personal life or relationship and a client or customer's satisfaction levels, to the ability of an organization to grow and scale above and beyond it's current level.

But after 15 years of having seen the typical day to day challenges faced by both working professionals in demanding positions or high performance job roles, and companies / employers alike, I resolved to seek out better alternative pathways to achieving outcomes that mattered to both individuals and company's or clients without going insane yourself. 

After asking thousands of questions to coaches & Gurus, after following numerous Project Management Guidelines and best practices, observing the ways employees at successful & growing companies do things, and after having applied that in my own day to day affairs, I wanted to summarize and share my experiences on what works for both me and those that I have closely worked with while highlighting things that one could / should avoid. 

These have definitely helped me both at work and in my own personal life. It will work for you as well. It will also help you create your own personalized Productivity & Success Roadmap or Blueprint that you can constantly BUILD ON as you go forward.

The Transformation Catalyst

Hi Everyone.

I'm Kamlesh, an online educator, coach and a software project / program manager who has served several Fortune 100 companies & blue chip clients globally. As a project management professional, I have led dozens of high value software projects to success. Besides juggling highly time sensitive projects, I love to contribute on topics concerning women’s empowerment, increasing human performance & productivity, fitness for professionals in high stress jobs, organizational transformation, leading change, and self-reliance. I'm a life long student of Krav-Maga and in contrast, enjoy ball room dancing as well.

I'm deeply passionate about helping others become self-reliant, discover their true strengths, balance their weaknesses, help find their life goals and identifying their motivation so they can get the most out of life, and live a fulfilling and complete life. 

I strive to bring out the best in others. Because a lot of self-improvement and
theorized concepts don’t necessarily prove to be effective for everyone, in every situation, I take a more holistic & emotion driven approach that will help students get the most value while enabling them to practically apply what they've learned, stay motivated longer until these become habits.
