In the arena of corporate training and business coaching, where excellence is the norm and inspiration is a rare gem, one name shines particularly bright: Dr Nirav Majmudar, India’s Most Inspirational Corporate Trainer and Business Coach for 2024.
Delete dry lectures and stale formulas. Dr Majmudar isn’t just about imparting knowledge; he’s about igniting transformation. His workshops aren’t mere training sessions; they’re catalytic journeys where individuals unlock their hidden potential, leaders discover their authentic voices, and businesses rise to unprecedented heights.
Dr Majmudar is a force for positive change, a catalyst for personal and professional growth, and a builder of brighter futures. His impact extends beyond the training room, weaving a tapestry of positive transformation across individuals, organizations, and the entire business landscape.
The Master Weaver of Insights
Dr Majmudar isn’t a walking encyclopedia; he’s a master storyteller. He blends profound wisdom with personal anecdotes, pop culture references, and humour, weaving a tapestry of insights that resonate deeply with every participant. Learning becomes an engaging odyssey, not a tedious chore.
As a trailblazer in the corporate and business world, taking us back to the beginning, Dr Majmudar says that his journey into corporate training and business coaching has been an unwavering pursuit of his true calling. “From the outset, I’ve been driven by a dual passion: to impart my knowledge and attitude while significantly contributing to my nation’s growth.”
Despite numerous opportunities to study and settle abroad, Dr Majmudar’s commitment to India remained unwavering. Even as an MBA Gold Medalist, securing the first position through Campus Placement, the allure of a conventional corporate career never resonated with his inner drive.
Choosing a path less travelled, he transitioned to academia, dedicating nearly a decade to teaching in the MBA domain. Concurrently, he delved into the realms of training and consulting, recognizing its profound impact and resonance with his innate purpose.
In 2015, Dr Majmudar embarked on his entrepreneurial journey, founding My Saarthi Training. The genesis of this venture wasn’t just a business endeavour; it was a manifestation of his lifelong aspirations and the dominant ethos guiding his life – Man Making Nation Building.
Since its inception, My Saarthi Training has facilitated transformation for over Three lakh participants and cultivated relationships with 100+ esteemed national and international clients. “This journey has transcended borders, reaching individuals from 25 countries, symbolizing the universality of our mission,” says Dr Majmudar.
Standing at the helm today, he is humbled to lead a team of 18+ Associate Trainers, united in their commitment to this profound mission. “Together, we continue to steer individuals and organizations towards excellence, empowering them to achieve their utmost potential.”
The Unwavering Champion of Potential
Dr Majmudar doesn’t believe in cookie-cutter solutions. He sees the unique spark within each individual and organization, and his coaching empowers them to unleash their full potential. He’s a catalyst for growth, a sculptor of talent, and a relentless cheerleader for human excellence.
That is how he has emerged as one of India’s best corporate trainers and business coaches. Sharing the guiding philosophy that has propelled My Saarthi Training’s success, Dr Majmudar says that the guiding philosophy steering the success of their organization encompasses a deep-rooted belief system and deliberate behavioural principles.
“At its core lies our unwavering commitment to our mission: Man-making and nation-building. Each day presents an opportunity to contribute significantly to others’ lives, irrespective of time, temperature, seasons, or distance; our sole focus remains on fulfilling our mission.”
He furthers that their behaviour is governed by three fundamental words that underpin every interaction and training session: Educate, Entertain, and Inspire.
“Educate symbolizes our dedication to offering participants and clients something novel—fulfilling their unmet needs with knowledge that broadens their horizons beyond expectation.”
Entertain goes beyond engagement; it’s about crafting an atmosphere where learning is enjoyable, ensuring that each interaction is informative, engaging, and enjoyable.
“Inspire, the pinnacle of our philosophy, extends beyond imparting knowledge. It’s about igniting a transformational journey. Our commitment is to inspire our participants and clients to elevate themselves consistently—to encourage them to go one level higher every single time.”
“This philosophy isn’t merely a set of principles; it’s our way of life—a steadfast commitment to making a difference, one inspiring interaction at a time.”
Sculpting Leaders, Not Just Learners
The business landscape is continually evolving. To ensure that he remains adaptable and ahead of industry trends, providing innovative solutions to his clients, Dr Majmudar doesn’t believe in one-size-fits-all leadership formulas. He recognizes the unique qualities of each individual and empowers them to develop their authentic leadership style. “While acknowledging the nascent stage of the training and consulting Industry, I perceive it as an arena that’s progressively unfolding and expanding.” It’s a landscape ripe with opportunities rather than being entrenched in intense competition for clients.
In this growth phase, the emphasis isn’t on adaptability but on accessibility and innovation. A country like India needs steps towards ways to reach untapped corners. “Every entrepreneur needs mentoring, every business needs consultancy, every industry needs training.”
He adds that their focus is to give results in ways not imagined by others and not expected by clients. “As we navigate this evolving landscape, our focus is on what I call in my team meetings – ‘While others meet expectations, let’s exceed Imagination.” This results in emergent leaders who inspire, motivate, and create high-performing teams where everyone feels valued and empowered.
The Bridge Between Theory and Practice
Dr Majmudar’s leadership style is often recognized as an inspirational force behind My Saarthi Training’s achievements. Shedding light on his approach to leadership and business promotion, he says, “I strongly believe that ‘Leadership begins where selfishness ends.’ As a leader, my prime responsibility is to think of others first. As a leader, I feel that what is contagious with my team is my commitment to the mission. I feel that, as a leader, every interaction must start with why. Finally, I do put much trust in people, which pays a lot.”
Dr Majmudar’s expertise isn’t confined to academia. He’s a seasoned entrepreneur and business leader who deeply understands organizations’ real-world challenges. This practical wisdom permeates his training, ensuring every lesson translates into immediate and tangible results.
The Alchemist of Culture
The essence of business lies in bringing innovation and advancements to the niche. To balance between training, coaching, and modern industry expectations, Dr Majmudar doesn’t just train individuals; he transforms teams and cultures. He fosters collaboration, communication, and a shared vision, creating high-performing organizations where people thrive, and businesses soar.
Dr Majmudar adds that evolution thrives on the bedrock of innovation and adaptation in business. His approach to balancing training, coaching, and meeting modern industry expectations is rooted in a trio of innovations designed to catalyze learning and drive tangible results.
“In the realm of training, our methodology revolves around three core innovations.” First, the ‘Learning Canvas‘ encapsulates the entire training program into a comprehensive page, ensuring a holistic overview for participants. Second, the ‘Action Card’ is a pivotal tool facilitating implementation, documentation, and reporting, ensuring that insights gained during training are effectively applied in the real world. “Lastly, our commitment to experiential learning involves customizing activities to create impactful, hands-on experiences, fostering a deeper understanding and retention of concepts.”
Shifting gears to coaching, Dr Majmudar and his league of experts harness globally acclaimed business models, tailoring them to suit the intricacies of the Indian business landscape. Their forte lies in adapting these models while infusing practical creativity into their implementation. One of their distinguishing factors is their adeptness in navigating the common challenge of organizational resistance to change. They specialize in securing buy-in from key stakeholders and orchestrating widespread acceptance among teams, facilitating a smooth transition towards implementing transformative changes.
Both in training and coaching, Dr Majmudar firmly believes that comprehending the psychology and motivations of the individuals involved is pivotal. Understanding their perspectives, aspirations, and potential barriers allows for a more empathetic and effective approach, ensuring that the guidance provided resonates deeper and drives meaningful, sustainable change within organizations.
The Sustainable Legacy of Inspiration
Sustainability and environmental responsibility are crucial aspects of modern times. According to Dr Majmudar, embracing sustainability and environmental responsibility is an integral part of their ethos, and they embed these principles deeply into their programs, catalyzing impactful change within organizations.
“Our efforts span a spectrum of initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability. We’ve played a pivotal role in implementing various environmental and social standards, such as SA 8000, ISO 26000, ISO 27000, ISO 37000, Business Excellence, and Responsible Care.” These frameworks serve as cornerstones, guiding organizations towards ethical and sustainable practices. Additionally, their collaboration has aided numerous organizations in achieving certifications and accolades, like Quality Circle Forum of India (QCFI), Ecovadis and Business Excellence, acknowledging their commitment to sustainable business practices.
Moreover, My Saarthi Training’s involvement in crafting and implementing Performance Management Systems within companies is a pivotal avenue through which we intertwine sustainability. Under Dr Majmudar’s adept guidance, the team ensures that each individual’s Key Result Area (KRA) is intricately linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This strategic alignment fosters a sense of individual responsibility towards global sustainability objectives and reinforces the organization’s commitment to driving positive change on a larger scale.
Dr Majmudar’s impact extends far beyond the training room. His participants walk away with skills and a renewed sense of purpose, a contagious energy, and an unwavering belief in their possibilities. This ripple effect of inspiration leaves a lasting legacy, making him a true role model for aspiring leaders and coaches.
Igniting Individual Potential
Dr Majmudar has achieved remarkable success. Highlighting a transformative project, he says that one of their most impactful endeavours involved spearheading the implementation of a comprehensive Performance Management System for a prominent Indian conglomerate valued at $5 billion. “Before our intervention, the absence of a formal and standardized appraisal system posed challenges. Our solution encompassed a multi-faceted system integrating various stages, including Performance Appraisal, Goal Setting processes, Competence Matrix, Performance Potential Matrix, Relative Matrix, Feedback System, and the development of Individual Development Plans.” This initiative not only streamlined performance evaluation but also fostered a culture of continuous improvement and individual development within the organization.
Additionally, their expertise extends to harnessing the power of the Enneagram, a revered personality assessment tool dating back 2500 years. “Through extensive mastery of this tool, we’ve crafted a unique two-day residential experiential training program.” This immersive experience involves 18 innovative techniques aimed at uncovering and confirming personalities. The program’s core focus lies in fostering unconditional self-acceptance and promoting acceptance towards others. Understanding individuals’ fundamental drivers and cores using the Enneagram has proven instrumental in enhancing team performance, leadership, and interpersonal dynamics. The profound benefits of the Enneagram transcend mere assessments; they deeply impact personal growth and team cohesion, resonating across organizational success.
“Moreover, our impact extends to national sales teams across diverse Indian and multinational corporations, where we’ve delivered cutting-edge training on Advanced Sales Techniques.” Leveraging insights drawn from the strategies of Apple and Steve Jobs, Dr Majmudar’s My Saarthi Training’s unique intervention focuses on selling high-value products and the art of conveying more with fewer words. This bespoke training methodology encapsulates the essence of effective communication and adopts a design thinking approach, harnessing collective wisdom for optimal results. Beyond enhancing sales proficiency, this training is valuable for informing strategic marketing decisions within organizations and aligning sales methodologies with broader business objectives.
Dr Majmudar’s workshops aren’t just about technical skills but about igniting the spark within. He helps individuals discover their strengths, overcome limiting beliefs, and tap into their hidden potential. Whether it’s a shy intern finding their voice or a seasoned professional rediscovering their passion, Dr Majmudar empowers them to become the best versions of themselves.
Empowering Businesses to Thrive
According to Dr Majmudar, technology stands as a catalyst for transformation in the rapidly evolving landscape of modern business. “While we are currently in the exploratory phase, we are actively strategizing to leverage technology to elevate our services and thrive in the digital age.”
He adds that their imminent endeavours include the development of an in-house online portal, www.mysaarthi.net, dedicated to sharing video-based training modules. “This platform aims to enhance accessibility and scalability, allowing us to disseminate knowledge efficiently while accommodating diverse schedules and geographical locations.”
Additionally, recognizing the importance of aligning individuals with suitable roles, Dr Majmudar and his passionate team are pioneering the creation of an online tool for Enneagram-based personality assessments. This tool is designed to facilitate the recruitment process by aiding in the identification of the right candidates for specific positions, harnessing the insights garnered from this ancient personality assessment system in a modern, tech-driven format.
Dr Majmudar’s impact isn’t limited to individuals and teams; he helps entire organizations reach their full potential. His training programs align with business goals, address specific challenges, and promote a culture of innovation, adaptability, and continuous improvement. This leads to increased productivity, employee satisfaction, and greater business success.
Further, in today’s dynamic world, collaboration is key, says Dr Majmudar, who helps teams break down silos, foster trust and communication, and work together towards shared goals. His training programs build a culture of respect, accountability, and collective success, transforming teams into powerful, high-performing units.
Make India – A Dream Initiative
As a leader in India’s business sector, Dr Majmudar and his team faced their share of challenges. Sharing an instance where their resilience and ingenuity triumphed over adversity, he says that one of the most formidable challenges they encountered was during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Until then, our focus had predominantly been on physical training and consulting services.” However, the pandemic brought about a drastic shift, leading to a significant downturn in earnings for three months, with revenues amounting to a mere ₹4000.
“Driven by a fervent commitment to our mission, we harnessed this adversity as an opportunity to innovate.” In the initial 15 days of the lockdown, amidst uncertainty, ‘Make India’ was conceived—a visionary model aimed at contributing to India’s journey toward becoming a global powerhouse. “With a vision to propagate this concept to 10,000 people, we initiated free online sessions starting on April 23, 2020.” The response was overwhelming; the concept resonated with over 53,000 individuals, surpassing initial expectations by June 2020.
This pivotal shift to online platforms not only facilitated the dissemination of knowledge but also opened unforeseen avenues for online training. Beyond the concept’s reach, this endeavour significantly bolstered his brand visibility, attracting a surge in business opportunities.
Shaping Future Leaders
Dr Majmudar says, “The young generation are the torchbearers of our nation. My advice to the young, aspiring entrepreneurs stepping into the corporate and business arena would be twofold:”
Firstly, define a higher purpose that drives your endeavours. Having a profound ‘why’ behind your actions fuels passion, resilience, and perseverance. Align your aspirations with a purpose beyond profitability; aim to make a meaningful impact on society, solve prevalent issues, or enhance lives in a significant way. This purpose becomes the North Star guiding your decisions and actions, fostering a deeper sense of fulfilment and commitment to your journey.
Secondly, recognising the essence of human contribution becomes paramount in an era where technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace. “As I often emphasize in my training sessions, ‘Everything that can be standardized will be computerized.” Therefore, the true value lies in human innovation, creativity, and the ability to think outside the box. Embrace innovation as the cornerstone of your approach. Cultivate a mindset that seeks novel solutions, challenges conventional norms, and leverages your unique human capabilities to drive innovation that machines cannot replicate.
Dr Majmudar doesn’t just train leaders; he sculpts them. He equips aspiring leaders with the skills, vision, and emotional intelligence to navigate complex challenges, inspire their teams, and drive sustainable growth. His coaching programs create a generation of responsible, compassionate, and effective leaders who will shape the future of business.

Looking to the future, revealing his vision, Dr Majmudar says, “Our unwavering dedication to our mission—’Man Making, Nation Building’—propels our vision for the future, one that seeks to leave an indelible impact on India’s business landscape through our training and coaching initiatives.”
