After a successful twenty-year career as an executive and entrepreneur, Vish Chatterji (@thebusinesscasualyogi) is paying it forward as an East-meets-West Executive Coach. He is a certified meditation, Ayurveda, and yoga teacher and believes the wisdom of yoga offers answers to many of the leadership questions of our day. His insights and experiences have culminated in his book, The Business Casual Yogi, which launched this month.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Vish on:

  • [21.07] The beginning of his spiritual journey. Vish recalls losing his way during a terrifying solo trek in the Himalayas before recovering in an ashram and finding comfort and wisdom through his friendship with Yogrishi Vishvketu, a renowned Himalayan yoga master and philosopher.

  • [31.23] Vish’s transition from business executive to teacher. He describes his life-changing meeting with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and explains his subsequent decision to retrain as an executive coach and Vedic counselor, dedicated to sharing his spiritual insights with the business community.

  • [39.01] His unique East meets West perspective. Vish explains how he combines the Western MBA approach to business management with his training in yoga, Ayurveda and meditation in order to maximize the professional and spiritual potential of his clients.

  • [46.53] His collaboration with Yogrishi Vishvketu on their recently released book: The Business Casual Yogi, Take Charge of Your Body, Mind and Career. The book shares the wisdom of the Vedic knowledge system with the business world and elaborates on the concept of spiritual intelligence and its role in creating happiness and success.

  • [53.09] How to reclaim your inner guru. The importance of learning to trust your intuition and listen to your inner voice rather than relying on others for guidance and advice.
