Trainer & Mentor Mr. Shailesh Tandel
Gifted with a wonderful name, Shailesh honors his life’s purpose. Shailesh means ‘Himalaya’. Its wisdom has the same simplicity and yet the same steepness of Himalaya. And Tandel means the one who guides the sailors to drive the ship to a decided destination. He doesn’t drive himself but he is the captain of the ship. In his every action you will find a strong commitment.
In last 10/15 years many Maharashtrians got into business & succeeded too but in 1989 that wasn’t the scenario. Marathi Manus & business were 2 extreme ends of the pole. Starting a business was considered a biggest risk as you might end up losing all that you have & when you are responsible to your family's welfare too then security comes first not the adventure. Hence the Marathi Manus existence in business was almost negligible.
If the scenario was so uncertain then it wasn’t pro for someone who didn’t even crossed his teenage & surely not for someone, who was not having any guidance or capital in hand to run the business.
This is the age where people struggle to complete their studies & to be on their own; possibly finding them a good job. You get into business in your forties or fifties. Surely not in teenage but here was Mr. Shailesh Tandel that even as a teenage boy he made up his mind to deal with any challenges that may arise & dealt with it powerfully; that too, not for a small period of time but consistently for 29 years.
When you are getting established in business & even after you are already established you do face so many ups & downs. If you are a first generation businessman then the problems aren’t few but they are in wholesale. Life is just like a roller coaster that shakes everything which is on the stake.
While facing these problems he learned to see the world beyond his obstacles. Rather than holding onto or pampering issues he confronted them with open arms; every time that they occurred. He always learned something or the other from those experiences & kept spreading his knowledge to as many people as possible.
After his realization about leadership qualities that he possesses a pathway got created in guiding people for betterment of their life with the help of his own business experiences & supporting nature.
It wasn’t a conscious decision to guide people rather he was completely unaware of this happening & he only realize this fact, when it reached the expressway of trainings.
All these years the work that he started to support people in realizing their true potential & having a great life by using simple methods is still continued.
You will always witness excitement & simplicity in him. May be he is gifted with that power & yes he has used it in a right direction. Even a complex issue simply vanishes in playful atmosphere that gets created when he is around.
In last 29 years of his carrier as a businessman & 21 years as a Life Skills Trainer / mentor he has touched many lives. Contributing & making a difference in somebody’s life gives him the immense satisfaction, no matter who is the person, whether he/she is known or a complete stranger, a child or an elderly person; he simply makes their life as progressive as possible”.
Rather than giving knowledge he supports people in realizing their own qualities & a way to use in their life. Knowledge is very important but it’s useless if you don’t know how to use it & when to use it.
The purpose of his life is to enable people from all walks of life realizing their true potential & strength to take on big things & to face the reality of life.
Journey of a trainer started just like that but now lovingly people call him ‘A Time Management Expert’, ‘Master Communicator’ or simply a ‘Versatile Trainer’.
