My guest today on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a computer scientist, an electrical engineer, and has been an IT Industry management leader for the past 25 plus years.
Which sounds pretty standard stuff.
But Join Up Dots is not a normal show, and is about giving you guys ideas, and concepts that you can use to create great success in your own life.
Showing you what other people are doing, so that you can think “I could give that a go!”
Well today’s guest is bringing his passion for Yoga-principles, to his connections in the academic and corporate world.
He is getting all levels of management to have a go, and sit cross legged, and touch their toes.
He has brought Yoga to the Tennis courts, executive board-rooms, mental health facilities and senior centers.
He has been an ardent student of Yoga since 1984, and has had formal Yoga training from various renowned institutions and teachers in India and the US.
But what I love about this guy is the blending approach.
He isn’t saying this will work, take it or leave it.
But he is saying let’s try this, and see how it goes.
And from his leadership talks, yoga sessions, or even his laughter therapy he is taking his experience of how the corporate world works, and is building something very different.
So was his starting career in Sales and IT the perfect place to begin his journey, or has it actually held him back to where he deserved to be?
And is it getting easier to convince the boardrooms of the world, that a bit of the downward dog is a great thing to bring in for the employees?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Prashant Joshi.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Prashant Joshi such as:
Why operating in a slow and steady way whilst in business is definitely a practice that we should embrace, and ultimately brings about huge success.
How he first came to America with only $3,000 dollars in his pockets, and tells us how he set about finding his own American Dream.
Why he was coached in the early days to allow the growth of his company to be organic, and to let the business flow naturely.
Why he tries to live by the mantra of “You are going to spend more time at work, than you are at home, so you might as well have fun!”
