About FLOW Workshops

FLOW workshops are personal and explorative in nature. Flow believes insights that emerge out of self-exploration bring an emotional shift, hence result in a real change. Flow workshops does not use power points, established concepts or management literature in our workshops. Participants are requested to identify and explore concerns that affect their current lives – personal or professional. Flow believes everything we do involves us, hence both personal and professional life affect each other. Flow workshops creates a safe space for participants to explore without the fear of being judged.

Fundamental to the Flow working philosophy is being in touch with the present moment. It is also called being in the here & now. This means while there is a basic design for any interaction, a higher intelligence chooses what will emerge in the moment. Flow does not believe in right or wrong. Flow allows for multiplicity of perspectives and create a safe space for them to engage with each other, without any pressure of reaching a similar conclusion. Flow believes free experience and expression are far more powerful change agents, than reasoning and explanation.

The setting of the workshops is informal with Indian style seating on mattresses and cushions on the floor. However, a participant is free to sit on a chair if he wishes. Unlike a typical workshop, there are no tables, chairs, power points or written material.  While participants are free to take notes during the workshop, they are encouraged to be more attentive how they feel in the moment. Flow believes change is a result of what touches us the most and transforms our world-view.

Mehul Desai, Chairman and Founder

“MOS came across Flow by chance and until then, we had not even thought about engaging a professional to help achieve certain goals. MOS is run single handedly with a core team that came together from different walks of life and groomed to work in a certain way. With the rapid progress that we experienced, newer talent was hired and it became evidently important to transition from a ‘one man show’ to a ‘professionally run’ set-up.

Flow was consulted with solely this challenge in mind – to make the core team and the new professional blood work cohesively and each independently bringing their strengths to the fore and using their own emotions and thought processes rather than blindly clutching for support.

Flow took a step by step approach and in that Ajay, Meena and Payal  met with many individuals at different levels in the organization, where they were simply scratching the surface to understand the ‘nature’ of the company and the people.  The next step was to synergize the energies of the top leadership tier to make the ‘goal’ even a possibility.  This tier was more extensively probed to gauge the intellect and ability to be instrumental in the ‘transition’.

Once the key leadership team was identified, Flow charted a casual off site workshop, which was very subtly structured. It was an open forum where each one was required to speak from the heart and not mind without fear of being judged, bearing consequences, also facing and accepting that each one is unique and capable of having an opinion! ‘Open communication’ and ‘connecting with one-self’ was the main premise that caused an emotional and mental churning.

The workshop infused freshness and empowerment that is visible even months later. The changes have trickled in a ‘top-down’ manner and what Flow has accomplished is a start of much needed efforts to enrich interpersonal rapport, understand accountability and decrease stress levels. Further, Flow has also conducted individual leadership coaching for a few key profiles.

Ajay and Payal’s approach was refreshing, not so ‘in your face’, rather casual and kept each one engaged. Their level of involvement and interest was seen through all tiers of the workforce and most importantly, they were fearless to point out what was not working irrespective of the hierarchy.

The health of an organization is completely dependent on the people and with Flow’s help, we now have awakened minds. A Flow ‘health-check’ is recommended to jump start organizations to move forward in the right direction.”
