Helping people become
better learners 

How liberating would it be if we viewed ourselves first and foremost as learners?

And…what if we were actively aware of ourselves as learners and could adjust our approach for success accordingly?  How much could we achieve then?

If a person can master learning then the world truly is their oyster.

Those that can adapt will survive.

Charles Darwin said it so well “those that can adapt, will survive”. Our ability to adapt is what sets us apart from other species, and our ability to learn is what sets us apart from other people.

 

 
 
As an educator, a friend, a colleague, a mentor, or a coach, [Shyam’s] approach is always professional, measured, calm and positive. He engages his audience with curiosity and gusto. His love for lifelong learning is contagious and his breadth of knowledge is exceptional. He communicates with compelling courage, has a great sense of social acuity and is deeply attentive to the purpose or situation

[Shyam] is a natural educator. Shyam worked with us in a volunteer capacity, creating educational programs for local teachers. I was impressed with Shyam’s ability to observe and propose changes that are culturally appropriate and very much needed. He has the perfect combination of kindness, positive attitude, and an incredible confidence to propose challenging ways of seeing education from new and modern perspectives.

Having Shyam as my coach has honestly changed my life. In the short time we have been working together he has been able to help me achieve what I’ve wanted and I’m excited to see what happens going forward. Shyam’s been there to inspire me. From the first time we sat down [together], I walked away with a spring in my step. I could write forever about how inspiring he is but it’s something you really need to experience for yourself.
