Brief Intro : Mahesh Sharma

Mahesh Sharma. Coach | Humanist | Researcher

I am glad that you landed here on my profile page and gave me the opportunity to briefly introduce myself and the work I am doing. I hope and wish that this small introduction leads us towards a long-term professional and personal association.

I am a Certified LIFE Purpose Coach, Speaker & Corporate Learning Facilitator by profession and a Humanist, Researcher and Nature Enthusiast by choice. I am the Founder and Chief Mentor at Know Your True Self®Research Academy (KYTS Research), founded in 2008. It’s a research, coaching, training and community sharing entity in the fields of Life & Personal Performance Coaching, Behavioral Sciences, Energy Psychology, Emotional Health and Wellness, Mind-Body connection, Human side of enterprise, Life Management, and spiritual upliftment.

I was born & raised in the Capital of India and started my career in the Indian Army.  Coming back after serving for 10 years in the Army I associated with various organizations in the fields of insurance, real estate, training and alternate franchising as an entrepreneur, trainer, coach, consultant & speaker. My cursorily, understanding of human behaviour and psychology which was there since I was in the Army now was fueled by coming into connection with various individuals and entities from different walks of life.  My own personal experiences had also given me deep insights into the human psyche, emotions and behaviours which led me to finally take the plunge to follow my lifelong passion and I started my own Coaching, Research & Training entity Know Your True Self®Research Academy (KYTS Research).

Since then I have dedicated myself to educating, empowering & coaching individuals, groups and entities to spread my heartfelt message of true leadership, abundance, well-being and Personal Excellence through the channels of personal coaching, workshops, seminars, key-note addresses and mass media.  During the journey, I got the opportunity to work with many corporate, educational & professional institutes, individuals, groups and couples which had added rich experiences to my ongoing journey.

As of today, I am operating from the city of Surat, Gujarat (India) and passionately moving forward with a mission to help more and more individuals, groups and entities in realizing their full potential and living a life filled with true joy, success and meaning. Through the medium mainly of personal coaching, I am committed and dedicated to helping individuals to bring the best out of them. 

Here is a snapshot of my journey till now which includes my experiences, credentials, clientele and testimonials for your information and perusal.

The EFT workshop conducted by Mr. Mahesh was very effective and he has explained and demonstrated the deep concepts in a way that I can with confidence that I have found the most effective technique to manage my emotions, which many a time bothers me a lot.

It is an excellent workshop delivered in an equally excellent and engaging way, from the point that whatever has been said by great saints like Budha etc, was scientifically and logically taught & understood with Mr. Mahesh Sharma, keeping in mind today’s most modern technical world and have been accepted by all participants.  If practiced, no doubt, would improve the Excellency of human being.
