GameChangers are ideas. GameChangers are people. GameChangers are entrepreneurs. GameChangers are organizations. GameChangers are governments. Anybody can be a game changer. All of us ‘need’ to be game changers at some point. A small number of game changers explain almost everything in our world, from the success of wars and religions, to the dynamics of historical events, to elements of our own personal lives, and the future as we know it.
Anticipating, understanding and addressing the unstated need of an unknown customer necessitate us to be game changers. Not rebels for the sake of rebellion or change junkies who want something ‘new’ or ‘novel’, but because there is no one best way to dance, as it were. There are always better, faster and cheaper ways to do things and do them more effectively.
More than at any other point of human civilization, the challenges that face us today require us to be disruptive in both concept and application to respond to the ultimate game changer – ‘CHANGE’. More than at any other point of human civilization, there are greater possibilities and opportunities to learn, evolve and grow to our highest potential and lead fulfilling lives.
We need more than just isolated innovations and moments of serendipity; we need people who are conscious of the status quo, determined to change it and committed to building something bigger than themselves.
At GameChangers, we strive to live and die by that cross every single day without apology or arrogance – to catalyze and curate happiness through learning and development – to subvert paradigms, to enable excellence.

It is true that skills, knowledge, experience and luck are significant factors in determining excellence. The only thing that is even truer is that every meaningful thing – the very pursuit of excellence, the challenging of the status quo, a possible new revenue model, a subtle strategic shift, down to a changed mindset – begins with a single game changing word – ‘attitude’. And that is at the heart of the idea behind our credo – subverting paradigms, enabling excellence – that in a world where the intensity, magnitude and frequency of change are unprecedented, subverting existing paradigms is not so much a choice as it is a matter of survival. By first re-engineering attitudes and then fostering and sustaining a culture and ecosystem that anticipates, manages and even thrives on uncertainty we seek to put the pursuit of excellence in individuals and organizations on an auto pilot mode.
Our raison d’être is to create an ecosystem of consciousness and happiness at the work place and beyond and is based on the set of the following shared beliefs:
For far too long we have relegated business and consciousness to opposite sides of the great divide. The idea of business is one where a group of people gets together to offer a set of products and services that they perceive to be of value for the rest.
Consciousness is what makes us who we are – it is our defining property. From the time of birth, we invest large swathes of our time into the enquiry and discovery of who we are and answering existential questions in the form of emotions, relationships, awareness and purpose.
Businesses are great at doing, but what are we doing it for? Consciousness is great at being. But what are we being for?
Conscious Business is an idea of balance and harmony – it’s the apex that embraces both, and intertwines them into a super-charged vehicle for unprecedented change in the world.
Our credo is to inspire change while maintaining steadfast relevance to context. Context is king. There is nothing more agonizing than being asked to sit in a closed room and be told ‘inspiring’ stories which have no relevance to your work. We live in an age of information overload, constant need for stimulus, instant gratification and ever decreasing attention spans. We strive, therefore, to engage and inspire whilst constantly keeping our eyes on the ball. The main thing is to keep the main thing as the main thing while accounting for detours and digressions. Our pedagogy induces and enables a transfer of learning and application into different contexts. We strive to be generic in concept and specific in application.
People change only when they are convinced about the underlying motivations and have sufficient incentive to change or visible and tangible disincentive with the status quo. Our facilitators help the individual see the cause-effect relationship between the effort taken and the result likely to be achieved, thereby creating a stronger pull. Most importantly, we focus on the ‘how’. We help you connect the dots. The concept. The application. The motivation to change. The resistance. The conditioning. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, if at all. All this synthesized into the subject matter. We don’t get simplistic about complexity or complicate that which is simple. For instance: If the early bird gets the worm, what happens to the early worm?
All and any meaningful learning is experiential. We take no pride in being ‘excellent’ trainers. It’s never about us. It’s always about you. The idea is to bring the individual and the team to a threshold where the learning comes from within in a moment of catharsis thereby having greater buy in and deeper insight. As catalysts, we understand that the journey is as important as the destination. The medium therefore becomes as important as the message.
The modern day professional is likely to have many careers. Some distinct, others overlapping. Combine it with the reducing ‘shelf life’ of skills and the fierce breadth, magnitude, frequency of change and it becomes as important to ‘let go’ and unlearn as it is to learn thereby enabling relearning of the new rules of the game. This philosophy also reflects in our eclectic learning mediums.
We take our work seriously. We don’t take ourselves seriously. And for the most part, we are able to distinguish the two. Our facilitators consistently strive to balance the delicate and fine art of being consummate professionals whilst being warm, personable and inclusive, bringing to bear the best of the western wisdom and eastern ethos.
