Welcome To NLP+ Lifestyle


Hello and Welcome!


To introduce myself with information of who I am, what I do and what qualification I hold to do what I do…….I am a NLP Trainer, Life & Behavioral Success Coach, Parenting Coach and a published Author by the nature of services I offer and little work that I have done at this juncture of my life as a learning & development professional. My latest book ‘Awaken The Incredible Within – Incredible Is the New Giant’ became Amazon #1 Best Seller in India within 14 hours of its release on Amazon.

My mission : Actualise Self !


I engage with people who are

1) ‘Seeker of Change in their Life’

2) ‘Seeker of Change in the World’

using the powerful & transformational tools available through Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I have been trained and mentored by Ramesh R Prasad & I am blessed to be his Apprentice. With Ramesh, since beginning until today, the journey has been transformational and empowering. The core of NLP is modeling excellence and this enables me to learn and share from the best.

I feel humbly proud to recollect the day in Kolkata, India when I begun my NLP Journey with International NLP Trainer R Ramesh Prasad of Onefluencer providing the most inspirational NLP training & coaching course to my experience.

And fatefully my transformational (as I may rightfully label it today) journey did not stop with just a wonderful commencement. I almost run through all levels of training, from the Foundation, Practitioner, Master Practitioner to Trainer Training as a galloping horse & as a thirsty learner. I found each course unique which potentially offered an experiential learning at many levels and then it commenced with Sue Knight joining in to give me those remarkable learning experiences with her as the International NLP Trainer, Coach & Facilitator. This became a truly world class learning experience for me…

I have infinite gratitude for each one of my trainers, coaches and facilitators in this wonderful journey of learning experiences through being and becoming with a conscious sense of curiosity, unknowing & flexibility. I always consider my learning has just begun & I am work in progress!!!

For me, there is a sense of great fulfillment when I can commit my life to the perception that everything is an opportunity for lifelong learning anywhere and everywhere, with anything, anyone, everything and everyone.

The core values which I am endowed with today through miscellaneous experiences in life in India and abroad in over 2 decades of my earlier corporate life and most recent as learning & development professional have paramount influence in creating the trajectory I am travelling today. The further I travel, the more I am beating my own untraveled path with who I truly am.

“We are not born to be PERFECT but to be TRUE!”

I have strengths as I have weaknesses, I achieve success as I make mistakes and I become happy as I experience sadness; I learn and with every experience I get closer towards realizing my true self. This is my real self!


To answer, how qualified I am to do what I do is for you to discover through your experience with me. The qualification which I can sincerely claim to my humble favor is – I get deeply associated with every work I love to do. I consider, the most important attribute for any job is passion with purpose. Everything else can be adopted. What I do makes me come alive in my work.

I am somehow less convinced about credibility of paper certificates, as they always may not ensure our capabilities and validate our claims of knowing what we know. They rarely come in handy when life challenges us with changes. What supports is the wisdom gained through varied experiences and our intrinsic excellence, which educates us all along, stays with us for eternity, help us to evolve and empower us to fit in this growing world because Nature’s code of conduct reads “SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST”.

With warm regards, I thank you for choosing to connect with me.

Call me direct (+91 9051402135) if you choose to discuss your challenges in life, being career (stagnation, selection confusion or advancement or switch), relationships (behavioral changes, conflict resolution or any other) or anything specific to your needs which you want as an outcome.

John Grinder, Co-creator of NLP Says 

“Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) represents a significant advance in the development of human choice. It places at the discretion of the skilled and balanced practitioner options for living with quality which were previously assigned variously to fate, chance, genetics, accidents and divine influence. It is important to me to explicate at least partially what I intend by the descriptive phrase, skilled and balanced. 

The skill issue points to the requirement in the mastery of any interesting human skill set for a commitment to practice, the personal discipline on the part of the would-be NLP practitioner to arrange his or her own context for exploring, learning and ultimately mastering of the actual body of patterning called NLP. Success at this task identifies a learner, and the result a technician.

The balanced issue refers to two requirements, first, the learner’s ability to integrate the skill set (mastered by the technician) into each and every area of their life, personal as well as professional. Secondly, once this integration of the technical skill set has occurred, the individual is faced with the awesome responsibility of exercising these choices with some wisdom. At this point, the caterpillar bursts the confinement of the cocoon, the technician transforms herself/himself into an artist.

All the above is a somewhat circuitous way of cautioning the would-be NLP practitioner. The world at the moment seems rather overflowing with people purporting to offer training in NLP. It is here in selecting a mentor that you, the reader,
may begin to exercise one of the most crucial abilities associated with artistry in the practice of NLP—namely, that of assessing the congruency of the purported trainer. If your intuitions caution you, if you detect a discrepancy between the verbal presentation of such a person and their actual behavior and performance, keep moving and looking for an appropriate model.”


It is about time to reclaim the glory of ancient India for every Indian. Present generation must be made aware that the rich spiritual and cultural legacy is the heritage of this wonderful country. It is every Indian’s mission to leverage on this infinite inner reserves and our ability to easily get empowered by our within.

We are endowed with human birth as a responsible Indian Global Citizen to spread our wisdom of excellence beyond transnational borders to unite & harmonize the world, to provide means and ways to live through an inner transformation – a breakthrough from our self-perceived limitations. Not choosing to be the obstacles for our growth – we can truly transform ourselves to be the regenerative natural catalyst for our potential growth.For this feat we must accept the respective accountability. The ‘why’s are well understood to be creating more confusions in human minds. The ‘how’s are to be hacked out, understood and taught.

And this is my mission at Neuromind Leadership Academy through my books, signature workshops, lifestyle (individual) coaching, NLP Training programs and awareness seminars for the targeted segment (Conscious Parenting & Awaken The Incredible Within workshop) to empower people to prevent undeserving disruptions and nurture their transformation & individual personal breakthroughs for the deserving.

I have returned to India with this mission. Let there be glory for India.

Will you join me and my movement.

Very Sincerely Yours.

Shantanu Das Sharma
