The Hero’s Journey: Awakening the Inner Nurturer

Jul 21, 2023

Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
– Tom Peters

Have you ever wondered what it takes to awaken your inner nurturer and create a ripple of positive change in the world?

Answering these questions, we had the absolute honor of listening to the very accomplished, Mrs. Madhuri Menon in this week’s Hero’s Journey. Having worked extensively for human-centered development, Mrs. Menon has a rich background in human resources, training, mentoring, and coaching. She has also actively worked in the not-for-profit sector for over a decade. Along with starting her own NGO, she is also on the Board of Trustees of various NGOs that work in the areas of women and children, education, livelihoods and rural development, watershed management, and access to finance in rural India.

With her inspiring aura and uplifting energy, Mrs. Menon talked about the changes she has seen in the industry landscape over the years and her journey of finding her inner strength. As the webinar progressed, Mrs. Menon and Avrril also delved deeper into the rising awareness about mental health challenges. Responding to a question about this cognizance in corporate set-ups, Mrs. Menon said, “There is a paradigm shift from mental illness to mental wellness.”
