Gurudev is driven by his personal purpose: Catalyzing people and organizations to thrive in pursuit of the purpose at their heart. His research confirms that shared purpose and values fundamentally motivate a growing percentage of people and businesses. Aligning the interests of all stakeholders enables optimal value for all.
He has worked extensively across cultures, including seven years as the lead facilitator in the formation of a global interfaith organization. He’s passionate about whole system approaches to organizational change, and specializes in engaging large groups to learn from each other to create lasting transformation.
Gurudev began his career as a CPA at KPMG, where he helped found the Pacific Northwest Management Consulting Department and innovated a facilitative approach to “Dynamic Strategic Planning” that was his first book and the basis for nationwide training. He did his doctoral studies in Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University, with a focus on collaboration and strength-based development.
Personally, Gurudev enjoys hiking, swimming, meditation, global cuisine and recreational ping pong, and any gathering of people from different parts of the world.
