Will the PlayfulMonk Approach work in my organization?

Are you wondering can the PlayfulMonk be used in my industry does Amaranatho have experience in it?

I have worked in tech, start ups, care, car manufacturing and even a hospital.  Even if I have not worked in your industry and I do not know your approach in detail, I can offer a new perspective with fresh eyes.

I have also noticed since working as a mindfulness based executive coach most of my clients regardless of the industry have the same needs and that is reassuring. I don’t work with any industry that intentional harms other humans or animals.

I am more aware and realise I bring value to the business by being the best possible me.
I am calmer and feel happier within myself.

Erica, HR

The PlayfulMonk program helped me remain calm when frustrated, and allowed me to see the bigger picture. Working on myself also helps to feel like I am achieving something at work.

Tim, Manager

I feel a lot more peaceful sitting at my desk

Employees are the major assets of any organization

If talented employees leave your organization
there is a good likely they will go to the competition
can you afford to do that?

Organization are full of deadlines, information overload, and complex communications, all of which we need to manage in positive ways.

If your talented employees don’t have the skills to do this, they will have mind’s full of worries about the past or concerns about the future, their energy can be depleted, and they will often feel exhausted. Would you want that?

If you recognise the benefits of the Playfulmonk approach and unsure how to bring them to your organisation I offer a free one hour one to one mindfulness based executive coaching session to help you uncover what the problem is/are and how the PlayfulMonk approach will resolve it. If it does not I will tell you and recommend somebody else.


Talented Employees not understanding what blocks them from their true potential.


Calm and connected in complex situation. Self-aware, collaborative and thriving.
