Srikumar Rao is an educator, executive, best selling author and life coach. He also happens to be one of the most popular business professors in America. His pioneering course, “Creativity and Personal Mastery,” remains among the most popular and highest rated courses at many of the world’s top business schools including Columbia University and The London Business School.
Srikumar’s breakthrough lectures have become so popular, attendees – including top CEOs, innovators, scientists, athletes, MBA candidates, and thought leaders across dozens of disciplines- need to join a year long waiting list and write 7 essays just to get in. The depth of the relationships and connections that participants enjoy are so strong, and the personal transformation that attendees experience is so long lasting, that it is the first course of its kind to have its own alumni association.
Rao is also an adviser to senior business executives, who helps them find deeper meaning and engagement in their work. He’s the bestselling author of Are You Ready to Succeed: Unconventional Strategies for Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life, Happiness at Work: Be Resilient, Motivated, and Successful – No Matter What, and has been a contributing editor for Forbes. Srikumar Rao’s work has been covered by major media including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Time, Fortune, BusinessWeek, the London Times, the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph.
