Productivity and Inner Peace

Everyone has value. Every one wants to be of value – to add value, to be productive. However, productivity can become challenging when inner peace – your sense of self and well being is stretched. Identifying key dependencies of productivity and inner peace can transform the state of an individual, a team and foster growth at work and home.

Culture of Sustainable Success and Happiness

We work with dependencies in our expression of life to create or reach states – physical, mental and emotional, that are conducive to success and happiness. Thoughts, emotions and attitudes form the identities of the tangible and non tangible entities that we entertain, hold value or try to produce and maintain. Knowing the ecosystem, the patterns of success and happiness as an individual, group or team greatly increases the production of a culture of sustainable success and happiness.

Awareness and Choices

An awareness of where and how you are, in an alert yet relaxed presence gives yourself a 360 degree perspective of yourself in relation to your inner world and the outer world. An awareness of your own strengths, opportunities and areas of improvement can present a world of choices catalysing informed and emotionally intelligent decisions for yourself, your relations of endearment and prized collective identities.

Vision, Focus and High Performance

You have the drive, the information in your brain and the expertise in the subject of your choice. However, you realise that your ability to fully channel or express your potential gets hampered by what we generally call, “Life got in the way.” Knowing distractions and defining short and long term emotional attitudes and designing a performance culture – an organic operational system aligned to your vision of performance and high performance.

Resilience and Compassion

Getting things done. Thriving with minimal optimum conditions in the long and short run may bring negative or positive changes in patterns of how you see yourself and the world. The ability to withstand and transcend challenges with limited resources – physical and/or emotional, can be greatly boosted by an emotion of ruthless compassion preventing trauma.

Tenzin’s passion lies in being a catalyst for responsible, motivated and talented individuals on their journey to find focus, fulfillment and a sustainable culture of success and happiness in relationships, work and life. That means exploring joy, humility and determination to acquire the life that everyone desires with clarity, balance, meaning and fulfillment. It also means working with perceptions and habits.
