Hey there! I’m Srijata and I believe setbacks are awesome!
Do you think I’m nuts? Well, turn the word around and let it stun you!
That’s my secret. I turn around setbacks, and convert them into opportunities to thrive and grow beyond imagination. This is why I love setbacks!
Since 2017 I’ve been championing setback leadership to business leaders and corporates. Leveraging the power of the professional, personal and entrepreneurial setbacks I’ve experienced in the last three decades, I’ve designed a winning Setback SOP for leaders looking to bounce back stronger than ever.
My work has resonated with over 50k business leaders worldwide, and several more through my books, podcasts, videos, blogs, and keynotes.
