Empowerment Coach & Founder
I am Shohrat Shankar, a Life Empowerment Coach.
Having trained & coached over 50,000 people from over 50 companies in the last 13 years; after addressing small groups of 10 to large audiences of over 500, I can truly say that everyone in this world is unique, with their very own set of varied talents, strengths, experiences, passions, needs and value systems. Training, interacting and coaching such people has helped me reach my potential as a master trainer, coach, entrepreneur and leader.
I have realized that the greater the challenges in this rapidly changing world, the more relevant they become. And I have definitely faced my own set of challenges that have empowered me to keep moving ahead and given me the courage and belief to conquer my trials and tribulations. This realization made me want to help others through their professional and personal setbacks, obstacles and problems.
So why should someone let me help them in their empowerment journey?
Well, because I have some clear steps to overcome challenges that I have learned from the various struggles that I have faced.
I started off as a person who stammered & stuttered my way through school & college and like so many others never believed I could ever create any impact in a crowd or on stage. I overcame this, when I started working as a software developer and starting helping and training my team mates. I had almost won by bout with stammering, when I lost my job in the dot com crash of 2002.
That lost opportunity was a doorway to many others, I moved to a BPO that that led me into my life as a trainer and eventual “Empowerment Coach”.
After a lot of thought, I made the bold move of stepping into an entrepreneur’s shoes. In the past decade of my entrepreneurship, I have faced it all. From struggling to make ends meet, getting the team’s salaries out on time, facing a robbery at my office to having to temporarily shut down operations and even contemplating getting into the security of a job. Like many others, I was in the doldrums, when some of my clients (hit by recession) pulled out. I wondered time and again where and when the next pay check would come from. I took loans, pumped money into the business, and still did not get the results I wanted.
The voices that told me to give up and go back to something secure kept ringing in my head. I was in a dilemma and did not know how to get out of my predicament.
After few days of licking my wounds, I decided to forge ahead with firm conviction and certainty of success. This period of struggle, recovery and success was a true test of the executive practicality of all that I had learnt and taught so far –SELF EMPOWERMENT!! And so began by tryst with empowerment.
This feeling of Empowerment came from an inner strength that had a lot do with the way I felt about myself, as well as, the support, care and love showered by my family, friends & a super team.
This feeling of empowerment has not only helped me in my career but personally as a human being a, husband, and even a father.
From finding the girl of my dreams, to being an empowered father who did everything for his little baby from bathing to changing diapers to never making promises that I couldn’t keep.
And what’s more I learned a lot more about myself. Along the way, I realized that my company and family were not the only ones that needed my attention. I had to make time for myself too. I learned to remove time for myself and enjoy my other passions.
I am now an avid adventure enthusiast and have ridden and driven from Ladakh to Kanyakumari. I've taken part in rallies and now have found my ultimate passion of adventure being fulfilled by riding my Thunderbird 500.
I have left the introvert stammering, stuttering kid behind and became a confident, optimistic, empowered adult who now faces every problem with courage, determination and self-belief. And this has earned me the privilege to work with and earn the loyalties of many of my clients. Some of these include Sandvik Asia, Bajaj Auto, Serum Institute of India, Volvo Eicher, Honeywell Automation, ICICI Bank, John Deere India Pvt Ltd, and many more.
I have started this new venture of open workshops to share some of my practical life lessons and learning with those who need it.
