"Dr. Parikh's special strength is to combine clearly and convincingly modern western management-concepts and scientific ways of thinking with eastern philosophy. Aim of his Seminars is to improve the physical, emotional and mental well-being as a basic requirement for top performance and success in one's profession and satisfaction in one's private life.
J. Parikh shows how to bring together the often conflicting expectations managers have to face in business and in life and how to meet increasing demands. Since many years his Seminars are an important contribution to the educational program for our top managers."
Dr. Rolf Gerling, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Gerling Group, Germany

Jagdish Parikh's programs are helping individual managers to better handle day-to-day pressures and to nurture a healthy degree of work / life harmony.

"In the increasingly complex world of today's leading business executives, the issue of maintaining a balanced perspective is more critical than ever. The competitive environment keeps adding new challenges. The result is often a de-emphasizing by default, of individual reflection, reassessment of personal values, emphasis on family, friends, and culture, etc.
Jagdish Parikh offers an explicit way to maintain a balance in one's personal "chemistry", re-emphasizing effectively individual values and management of oneself. I believe that this dimension will become increasingly important and I applaud Jagdish Parikh in his approach."
Peter Lorange, President, IMD, Switzerland
"The business world for executives has changed significantly over the last few years. The environment is more complex, business pressures more acute, relationships more inter-dependent and expectations from stakeholders higher. Strong business and personal leadership skills are all the more critical for success.
Jagdish Parikh brings a refreshing new approach to the understanding and practice of executive leadership by effectively combining Eastern and Western schools of thought. He reminds us that we are first and foremost individuals with responsibilities to both ourselves and to individuals around us. I commend him on his philosophy and for the insights that he brings to executives on our courses here at INSEAD, where he has been teaching successfully for several years."
Dr. Gabriel Hawawini, Dean, INSEAD, France
Dr.Jagdish Parikh has been a fixed point in our programme since we began it eight years ago. His very special blend of razor sharp professionalism, together with a very direct personal - almost intimate - personal contact, has always had a remarkable impact on the senior managers who attend our programme, stimulating highly productive reflection - which is the chief object of Lancaster's contribution to the IMPM programme.
Oliver Westall, Director, IMPM Lancaster University Management School
