|I joined ISKCON in 1983. From 1985 I translated Srila Prabhupada's books to Serbo-croat for about 6 years. I also served as a temple cleaner, pot washer, cook, temple president, bhakta leader, communications officer, congregational preacher, teacher, mentor, and life coach. From 2001 I served at ISKCON London as an executive secretary, life coach and Counsellor System Coordinator.
For the past seventeen years, I have been studying leadership, from both Vedic and professional sources. For several years I published Leadership Excellence Newsletter (now in the Vedabase 2003), and the Gita Coaching Newsletter for ISKCON leaders and preachers. Now I publish Helping Devotees Succeed Newsletter (via PAMHO conference).
I hold Diplomas in Performance Coaching and Life Coaching from Newcastle College (UK), as well as certificates for the ISKCON VTE Leadership and Management Course and Teacher Training Course I.
By Krsna's mercy, over the past several years I have coached over 300 ISKCON leaders and other devotees in over 1500 sessions and trained about 200 devotees in coaching skills.
My service is helping devotees succeed by:
1. Highlighting their worth and potential
2. Discovering new options, opportunities, possibilities and advantages
3. Finding solutions that exactly meet their needs
