An Inside Out Approach to Leadership

Anchor 2

It’s true that women in Leadership positions are battling against a tsunami of implicit and explicit biases that are working against them. 

It’s true that society and corporate culture has created glass ceilings which are discriminatory in nature.

Both of these need to change and the change is definitely underway!

Yet, these are only the disadvantages that come from the outer world......

How about the disadvantages that women face in their inner worlds?

We are all products of our upbringing and socialization - our brains the products of implicit and explicit conditioning.

 

Our inner world runs on an operating system of beliefs, ideas, fears and priorities that have been passed on to us when we were children. Our brain can only work with the mental models and expectations that it has been programmed with, and much of this programming has occurred at a subconscious level. Unfortunately, this programming of our minds is just as biased and faulty as the biases and prejudices we see outside in society. Rather, much of the biases in our minds would have been shaped by the biases present in the culture and social system that were present when we were children. 

Blue Water

Is it possible at all to re-program, rewire and upgrade these subconscious limiting beliefs, mental models, and outdated fears?

The answer is a RESOUNDING YES!

Women at the office

This program has been crafted especially for ambitious women who know in their hearts and conscious minds that they have every right to dream and aspire big. For women who would like to align all their faculties - heart, conscious mind, subconscious mind, and behavioural patterns - to make big and bold strides towards their dreams.

 

This one year program is a blend of lessons, coaching sessions, reflective activities, prototyping challenges, guest lectures, mentoring circles and peer support that has been designed to create transformational inside - out changes.

An unknown bias, fear, limiting belief or inner critique inside our mind is actually way more dangerous, than a known one. Just because we are unaware of a certain aspect in our subconscious programming it does not mean that those thoughts do not impact our choices, actions and behaviours. Rather it sometimes impacts us in even more powerful ways than our conscious thoughts often can. 

 

Tricky, as it might seem to work with the aspects of our inner worlds and past conditioning, the good news is that there are tried and tested tools through which it can be done. Crafting our inner worlds is an ongoing journey of mastery - one that theoretically never ends. Yet even small levels of change in the inner world can open gates for transformational results in the outer world. 

Superblooming your career is 60% inner work and 40% outer work, and the design of this program reflects that principle.

" I was looking at restarting my professional journey after a 7 year long break. It was due to us having moved multiple countries and an extended maternity break that I was on a career break. When I started looking out I realised I was stuck – stuck on what to do and how to begin ? 

I was totally blank. That’s when I started looking up my network and reached out to Ramya . That one phone call changed everything. After speaking to her I enrolled in the course “Redesign your Career”. I literally went back to the drawing board. Some of the best things of the course is that it breaks a lot of myths, makes you think out of the box breaking the linear path we all tend to take and explore options you never thought even exist. 

Ramya is an excellent facilitator and an evolved and mature mentor. Her vast experience comes to fore by her nudging you to push yourself but never imposing her view or thoughts on you. By the end of the course, I had so much clarity on what I wanted to do and how I could create it. In Ramya’s words -‘you have to create your own path or work’. 

I followed Ramya’s advise to the T consciously removing biases, opening up my horizons, self introspecting , constantly iterating and believing in myself that it’s never too late to do something u really want to do . 

Thank you Ramya for this and for resdesigning my career and getting me back on the professional journey. "

" Ramya's group coaching sessions were something I used to look forward to for many reasons. One of the primary ones being that Ramya brings in a high level of integrity and that led to a very high level of trust within the group. 

She has this way of creating a safe reflective space while also getting to the heart of the issues that were brought to the table by us participants. Another was the diversity of the group. 

 These coaching sessions generated rich focused discussions bringing in multiple perspectives. The issues we discussed ranged from dealing with self and family/friends to managing work related challenges. 

Her facilitation allowed participants to be open and vulnerable. It was also a great combination of discussions and curated reflective activities. I would highly recommend this for anyone keen to grow personally and professionally.   

The things that really stood out to me were:

– Many of the insights that Ramya shared, came from her practising the ideas in her own life, thus making her sharing authentic and powerful.
– Her ability to create a safe and warm space for self-exploration and introspection.
– Despite her expertise, she was honouring of every participant’s thoughts, feelings and life experiences.
– Her effective yet gentle way of guiding and encouraging people to explore beliefs and discourses.
– Her ability to make connections between concepts across different disciplines, thus adding far more value through the sessions.
– Her contagious energy and personal warmth! 

Thank you Ramya! Your commitment to your own inner growth while helping others grow, made these sessions rich in more ways than one! "

" Ramya's group coaching sessions were something I used to look forward to for many reasons. One of the primary ones being that Ramya brings in a high level of integrity and that led to a very high level of trust within the group. 

The program led to a very structured shift in mind set. I'm doing the same work, possibly more now, but am nearly never overwhelmed and at more peace with myself. 

 My key takeaways from the program were that it is not only possible but also easy to change our mindset and approach to things! It requires a commitment to place our own well being at the centre of our thinking, and that is what the program offered a chance to learn to do. 

The program was an opportunity to invest in myself little by little each week, until it was close to becoming a habit! I have actively started to reframe things that seem like problems, remind myself that I have choice and am in control of my situations, and what I find the most liberating, being able to think of everything that a prototype and a work in progress! Really takes the pressure off! 

Your inputs and clarifications to each of our doubts was immensely helpful. You are incredibly non-judgmental and even those who have nagging doubts about whether any of this 'really works' eventually come around. 

The bonus was the sense of community and commitment to offering ideas to each other! There was an increasingly strong sense of engaging with one another as the program progressed. 

 I have recommended your workshop to my students and I hope they get as much out of it as I did! "
