Sudhanshu Palsule


Palsiule's  work on leadership brings together the latest research emerging from neurology and psychology, and his own exploration of human thinking and behavior over thirty years. Trained as a physicist, he uses principles of quantum mechanics in his work on building effective 21st century organizations and teams that can thrive in increasingly complex global eco-systems.

His notion of  “Self-Ware”– the program of thinking, emotions, and beliefs that drives us – remains central to his work on leadership. His model of the "Four Mindsets" - Reaction, Control, Mindfulness, and Mastery has been succesfully used in many organizations globally, enabling teams and their leaders to operate at higher levels of cognition and leadership effectiveness.

Renowned for his expert facilitation and coaching, Palsule helps senior management teams engage in the difficult and sweaty conversations that bring resolution, energy and the right action. His clients include CEO's and senior management teams of several Fortune 500 companies. He also works with international organizations in the public sector and the United Nations. Palsule was featured in the magazine Developing Leaders for his work with pharma giant AstraZeneca. You can read the article here.

His leadership workshops are renowned for their profound transformative impact.


"There are three, and only three agencies that you have to influence and lead others: the conversations you have, the actions you take, and the behaviors you display. That’s your CAB. Whether you want to make an impact with your CAB or not is a choice you've got to make".
