In a VUCA world, change and disruption are continuously experienced realities, for individuals and organizations, requiring extreme responsiveness.
For organizations, this responsiveness comes not only from agile tools and systems, but from building leaders’ capacity for inner agility – mindsets and practices which allow them to lead in new ways. For individuals, inner agility allows them to learn and reinvent, cope with the emotional and cognitive burden of change.
However, this inner agility – emotional and cognitive flexibility to respond to change is often overlooked or taken for granted, resulting in falling back upon old habits and causing people and organizational breakdowns/stalemates.
Urja is about developing inner agility – articulating personal response to change and uncertainty, thereby releasing energy and creating clarity for leaders and individuals to respond to change and complexity with a sense of purpose and to take new actions for impact.
Urja is meant for:
What happens at Urja?
Urja participants share their experiences
Urja Seeds and Grows Inner Agility Mindsets and Practices
Through immersive experiences, self and peer reflection, dialogue, use of framing concepts, participants learn 4 essential inner agility practices
By increasing their own inner agility, leaders in an organization impact the organization in many ways:
3 day residential program
Day 1: 11.00 a.m to 6 p.m. – Participants map their professional and personal journeys – identifying significant patterns, drivers and influences. These patterns, drivers are important to surface in order to understand what may be shaping the current response to change. Structured exercises, dialogue and reflection are used.
Day 2: 9.30 a.m to 6 p.m – An exploration and understanding of how these patterns, drivers may be shaping the current responses at work, in the light of expectations to lead, transform, innovate, grow business/change professional direction etc is facilitated through activities, psychometric tools, reflection, group feedback etc.
We also work on clarifying own aspirations and surfacing unexplored potentials – looking at how these can energize one to take new steps, explore new choices and decisions.
Day 3: 9.30 a.m. to 3 p.m. – Understanding what happens in the transition stage and how one can make space for new behaviours, choices. Committing to a set of practices (for each individual) which can sustain and grow energy and drive to implement new choices and actions.
The program offers ample time for individual and shared reflection as well as time to experience the natural environment at Fireflies Centre. These form an essential part of the Urja experience of pausing in order to move faster.

Urja was the much needed pause which gave me the time to reflect and get clarity. This clarity has helped me in having more meaningful and impactful choices, conversations and decisions.
It completely transformed me and gave me a much better understanding of myself. Now I know where to focus on. I realised that self-awareness is so important. I liked the activities and experiences, especially the plotting the emotions on a timeline.
Urja is a unique process of gifting yourself a space where one can safely and deeply explore and observe one’s own experiences, behavior patterns and self-limiting / self-promoting thought processes that make the glasses through which we see ourselves, and our world. It is a space where everyone is equal – fellow participants and facilitators – all adding to each others’ experiential journey. No other training program (I have attended and facilitated quite a few) touches the depth of feelings and thoughts, the way this program does, leaving behind a strong sense of liberation and self-realization. So if you are someone having questions about your current situation and how you can change it, if you think you deserve better, if you feel adrift and uncomfortably out of control, if you feel a deeper understanding of your own needs and emotions would help you interact with the world around you better – this may just be the space you may want to gift yourself.
My experience with Urja has been incredible and way too worthwhile - with lot of ifs and but - why do I do need - do I actually need it and what not ? But once I stepped into the SPACE - the space uncovered so many aspects of my own self - SELF REALISATION of beauty with in you. We spend so much time and money on holiday and leisure and come back with just a relaxed body — but if any one needs to really rejuvenate the soul - URJA is one stop destination.
