A few years ago, Sanjeev sought to make himself more relevant in the new world. He had two mind-altering experiences: conversations with Dayanand Saraswati and an immersion in the works of Otto Scharmer. They helped him discover his new purpose, based on his multi-cultural experience and work with global leaders. He could create a global learning program. It would enable business leaders to understand the complex world created by new business and social paradigms. And help them thrive in it. At Mi-Shift, Sanjeev acts as chief thought leader. His passion is triggering an awakening in people through transformational experiences.

He returned to India in 2006 to set up G2i, a firm that helped European MNCs succeed in India for their operations and investments. His spirit for transformation led him to work with over 200 leaders Europe and India, enabling him to develop a relevant and innovative learning program that helps leaders be more aware and agile in an increasingly multi-polar world.
