How has your institute’s journey been so far, and what challenges did you encounter during this journey?

Working in such a niche industry, creating awareness & willingness towards investing time & effort in self-development has been a Herculean task. However, breaking through the traditional conditioning and setting context for the need & importance of self-development through our trainings & workshops does bring-in immense satisfaction. I find the journey truly inspiring and fulfilling when I see our clients transform, create the life they want, and also hear them share their success stories.

Kindly throw some light on your NLP training programs and their unique benefits.

We are basically a Train the Trainer institute which provides various NLP Training programs starting with the
