About Us

Atul Kalia
Founder and Partner, Atul Kalia

Why do some professionals reach the pinnacle of their field while others with seemingly similar background, don’t even come close to achieving their full potential? The same question can be asked in the context of success in personal life.

What self-limiting beliefs hold us back? How can we uncover and tackle these beliefs? How do we even begin to grapple with the impact of our sub-conscious on every decision we "think" we make? Connecting with others. The downside of too much or too little Self-awareness. Insights about these topics can lead to meaningful actions.

I suffered due to lack of such insights early in my career and benefitted from my own ongoing transformation in later years. As such, I am passionate about enabling such insights and unleashing one's best self.

Over the past several years my work has enabled success for individuals, teams and organizations, primarily engineering and manufacturing organizations. Personal & professional growth for individuals through focus on SELF awareness, accountability and ownership; Building high performance teams around trust and collaboration; Harnessing the power of positivity in workplace to engage employees and delivering results for complex programs; Growth in market share & revenue, continuous improvement in operations and sustained growth in profitability through execution of organizational change initiatives.

I enable this success by:

- Facilitation of planning & alignment summits for executives & stakeholders for key initiatives

- Competency development workshops to enable sustained mindset shift

- Workshops cover Project management, Strategy Execution & Leadership

- Coaching & leadership development for engineering professionals

- Consulting in Project Management & Strategy Execution, Digital Marketing

- Talent Search+ Project Managers & Engineers

Special Focus: Engineering, Continuous Improvement & Lean,

Creating High Performance Organizations

  • There is a moment during the workshop when all the participants open themselves and share not only work experiences, but personal challenges. The team came closer as colleagues and friends.
