“AWARENESS is the greatest agent for change.” – Eckhart Tolle
Leadership Coaching is one of the finest management training tools that help to not only maximize individual performances but also sharpen ones’ skills to manage and motivate others. At GapSkills, we lay thrust on enhancing management skills in existing portfolios as well as redesigning careers and lives once a leader has touched the threshold and seeks a new direction to move forward.
- Rapidly evolving business environments: Dealing with change, ability to learn, and adapting quickly has become an essential skill today
- Modern organizational characteristics: Flatter organizational structures, broader management roles, & lower job security have been contributing factors to growth of coaching
- The listlessness after raging success: After a certain level of growth and achievement, individuals reach a dead end with no idea of what to do next. Creating a new purpose and moving towards a new goal needs support.
- New roles: Newly promoted individuals often have to make large step changes in skills, responsibilities, attitudes, behaviours, and performance
- Financial impact: The cost of poor performance of senior managers/executives is very high
Coaching is a targeted, individualized, just-in-time development technique. Coaching provides organizations with an opportunity to undertake pre-emptive and proactive interventions to improve their performance. The Coaching process helps change people’s attitudes and behaviors by bridging the gap between KNOWING DOING BEING. Therefore, the process supports people to convert their Knowledge into Practice. It creates accountability in the person being coached to take concrete action towards achieving his or her goal.
Coaching is a process that helps you –
- Get clarity on your goals and/or purpose – what you really want or need
- Identify limiting beliefs that are holding you back from achieving your goals for yourself and your organization
- Use proven tools, techniques and resources that help you take action steps towards achieving your goals
“When we change, the world changes. The key to all change is in our inner transformation” – Daisaku Ikeda
As professionals rise in their careers, they take on greater responsibilities and direct charge of organizational performance. In this journey, they become pretty lonely at the top, whilst analyzing situations, reviewing performance, making critical-to-business decisions, etc. It is not only imperative that their thoughts, words, and actions are aligned with their intent but also perceived accordingly by their colleagues and management. This demands deep internal work on the part of a leader.
The Leadership Labs provide a safe and fertile space for deep reflection and enquiry into the unconscious, hidden, innermost beliefs, fears, and blocks that may be leading to certain instinctive & involuntary reflexes, impeding one’s pursuit of change. In these Leadership Labs, participants are guided to access their innermost dimensions, fearlessly, create an awareness about any blocks, and then make an intention and release them to enable them access their limitless nature.
These Leadership Labs are best suited for leaders, who desire to bring deep transformational shifts inside them, and create space for their evolution as humans and true leaders. It also build a strong synchronicity amongst the leadership team members. These Labs are typically scheduled to last two days at an offsite (place outside office), in the midst of nature.

UX services, or user experience services, are a crucial component of any digital product or service. User experience design involves creating a seamless and enjoyable experience for the user when interacting with a website, mobile app, or any other digital product. This involves understanding the user’s needs, preferences, and behavior, and designing an interface that is intuitive and easy to use.
There are several UX services that can help businesses improve their digital products and services:
User research: This involves gathering data about the users’ needs, preferences, and behavior through surveys, interviews, and observations. User research helps businesses understand their target audience and design products that meet their needs.
Information architecture: This involves organizing the content and structure of a website or app in a way that is easy to navigate and find information. Information architecture helps users find what they are looking for quickly and easily.
Wireframing and prototyping: This involves creating a visual representation of the user interface, without the use of colors or visual design. Wireframes and prototypes help businesses test the usability of their product and make changes before investing in visual design.
Usability testing: This involves testing the usability of a product with a group of users to identify any issues or areas for improvement. Usability testing helps businesses create products that are easy to use and understand.
Visual design: This involves creating a visually appealing design that is consistent with the brand’s identity. Visual design helps create a memorable and engaging user experience.
Accessibility: This involves designing products that are accessible to people with disabilities, such as hearing or visual impairments. Accessibility is important for creating products that are inclusive and can be used by everyone.

By understanding the needs and behavior of users, businesses can create products that meet their expectations and deliver a seamless experience. Whether it’s through user research, information architecture, or visual design, UX services can help businesses improve their digital products and stand out in a crowded market.
