The Pragati Story:
Set up in 1988, Pragati Leadership was born out of the founders’ vision of creating organizations and work environments where individuals draw upon their passion and creativity to contribute their best.
This was a radical idea at that time, when the prevalent industry practice was to view people simply as a resource to generate ‘output’ or execute tasks.
Over the years, we have developed our unique approach in the area of people development, applying philosophies and practices such as mindfulness and meditation to catalyse people towards ‘joyful effectiveness’.
