Leadership and Life Coaching
No true leader can journey their leadership path without encountering moments of deep self- doubt, crisis, reflection or a need for clarity. Borrowing from Joseph Campbell, the famous professor of comparative mythology, the leader experiences the “call to adventure” which eventually leads to an “inner awakening”. In these many moments of the inner journey, there are several times she finds herself terribly alone or stuck in dilemma. These are moments, which if taken as constructive pauses, can lead to phenomenal self-growth and as a result, amazing life and work transformation.
Nandini offers a safe space to leaders and executives to be “uninterrupted” in their ‘awakening’ journey, in their being and thinking; often resulting in the individual finding the resources needed to move on, adapt and thrive
“Nandini was very empathetic, great at listening and asking the right questions. She also provides great, handy, and useful tools that can be practically used outside of the sessions. I gained a lot of insight on myself, both personal and for career, during my time with her. I would recommend Nandini to anyone looking for career and personal coaching and would like practical tools to deal with different stages and needs for helping with either small or big decisions.”
- Senior Finance Executive, Financial Services Company
Nandini has been effective in helping her clients navigate change and transition in their personal and professional lives. She employs a huge variety of tools from the world of coaching and counselling, her methods laced with the deep knowledge of human energy/brain science and behaviour.
Nandini likes to work with the person and the leader role he or she essays. She applies the same approach to clients who want to work with someone who can help them think clearly about their lives. She believes energies for various roles we play our interconnected and even the tension between them can seriously impede a person’s progress.
"I've been fortunate enough to have connected with Nandini during a professional phase in my life where I needed guidance on navigating a certain situation. I'm sure most of us go through this, but don't always seek help. I'm glad I did. Besides helping me navigate the situation, Nandini delved much deeper and in a very simple, yet comprehensive way helped me get to a much better understanding of both myself and the players involved. Incredibly grateful for the path of enduring development this has put me on, both professionally and personally. Plan to stay continually connected with my Coach."

The Rhizome approach treats every individual like a rhizome node. A rhizome node is complete in itself and able to link with others in a massive energetic lattice. It is at its best, when it recognizes that, it is indeed complete in itself. Rhizome works with the individual or leader to awaken or align the internal sense of awareness, completion and wholeness. And simultaneously supports them in creating conditions for connection and attachment within their teams. The net outcome desired is an increased level of trust and engagement.
When one is secure and joyful within, with the appropriate emotional and cognitive mechanisms working together, there is an urge to feel motivated and to live life to the fullest. This spills over to the domain of work and personal life.
With appropriate boundaries in place, one finds in themselves resources to be of value to the world and connections where one desires to go. An individual’s world is constantly evolving and he or she is constantly ready to make new connections, as per their current requirements. Rhizome aims for its clients to enjoy this process of continuous growth and transformation.
Rhizome’s tools are backed with sound constructs of brain science, psychology, coaching as well as principles of adult learning and unlearning.
