We help you build a business, workplace, or sales team you always thought you would build by offering ongoing training programs, coaching sessions, resource libraries and a support network.
You have had a vision of how you wanted your business to turn out.
It may not be very clear. You may not give it much conscious thought. But it's there.
How much revenues you want it to bring in every year. How much you want it to grow year after year. How much of those revenues are realized as your net profits. What kind of position you want your business to be in the marketplace. How fast you want it to grow. How long you want that business to survive and thrive in the marketplace. And what kind of "exit strategy" you want for your business and for yourself.
You have an idea of what you wanted your business to be. In fact, you've this idea for a long time, starting from the day that you stepped in to your role as the Business Owner, CEO or President.
You have always known what you wanted your business to be.
Wouldn't it be nice if someone just told you exactly how to run your business, manage your people, lead your teams, engage your customers, and generate revenues? If they did, you could fix all your problems and build the business, team or sales results you always wanted to build.
Guess what? They have been telling you! A quick search on Amazon for the term "business management books" returns over 600,000 results. It's safe to assume that there are tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of philosophical models on how to build and run a business.
The question is...
There is only one answer, and you know what it is.
You have had an idea of how you wanted your team to work.
How much your people produce and what quality they produce. How your customers feel when they interact with the people in your team. How they show up to work. How they behave when they do show up. What kinds of skills, experience and expertise they bring to the team. What's their attitude - how they think and feel and what they believe - when they work. How passionate and engaged they feel towards their work, their team and their company. How long they stick around and how much they contribute to the success of your team and your company.
You have had this idea for a long time, starting from the day you stepped in to your role as a department manager, a team leader, or a work supervisor.
At some level, you have always known what you wanted your people to be.
If you manage people, you are intuitively aware that they are not performing at the level they are capable of performing.
Studies support this suspicion. A Gallup study shows that “16% of employees are actively disengaged — they are miserable in the workplace and destroy what the most engaged employees build. The remaining 51% of employees are not engaged — they’re just there.”
Just imagine, if you manage a team of six people, two of them are actively engaged, one of them is actively destroying the work of the others and the remaining three are “just there.”
This despite the fact that the number of management philosophies available to us probably are the highest we have ever seen in the known human history.
Have you ever wondered...
You have an idea of what it's like to be successful in your role as a salesperson.
If you have been a salesperson for a while, you may even have some specific ideas on what kinds of clients you get to deal with, how much fun it is to work with them, how many deals you close, at what price and margins, and how much effort you have to put in to get from starting a conversation to closing a deal.
You have a pretty good idea of what it's like to be successful as a salesperson. You may not have written it down, you may never have told it to anyone, you may not even have given it much conscious thought, but it's there. It's always been there, from the day that you started in your role as a salesperson.
You have always known what you thought your sales career would be like.
A google search on "sales training programs" returns more than 80 million results. Needless to say, there are thousands upon thousands of selling systems being taught around the world.
Despite this, or maybe because of it, salespeople are considered some of the least trustworthy people, only slightly above politicians and lobbyists.
According to a report by Hubspot Research, only 3% of people consider salespeople to be trustworthy. If you have something to sell to someone, you are starting at a tremendous disadvantage. And the selling systems that people want to sell to you may not be much help, assuming you can figure out which one to pick to begin with.
Think About It...
And how would you fix it?
Most of the management theories in circulation today have their roots in the Scientific Management Theories developed in the 1880’s (that was more than 130 years ago!) by a fellow named Frederick Taylor. This was the time of Industrial Revolution and people were fascinated, even infatuated, by machines. Taylor, like most managers of the day, viewed people as machine-parts and the business as a giant machine. He and many of his contemporaries were obsessed with how efficiently a task could be performed.
This mentality - of seeing people as things to squeeze out the maximum productivity from - is buried deep inside the psyche of even most modern managers. One of the most cliche’d sayings of the business world - “People are our most important asset!” - has its roots in this mentality. An asset is a thing to own and profit from, not a living, breathing human-being to inspire and appreciate so they feel compelled to bring their best selves to work.
The fundamental cause of all your problems in running business, managing people and selling things is two-fold...
We have put man on the moon and brought him home safe. We carry in the palms of our hands what used to be a giant supercomputer just a few decades ago. But we still work with and manage people the way we did when the Egyptians built their pyramids and the Romans built their cities: by owning those we lead and using fear to get them to do what we want them to do.
The fundamentals of our business management have not changed much in the last few thousand years, the core of which is to see, work with, and manage people as "things." If you are to change the results you get in working with people, you can't build on the existing mindset. You will have to start with a clean slate. I present to you a new mindset, a new way of working with people. I bring you The Way of Awareness.

If you want to fix these problems, you have to do two things:
With no fault of your own, you have most likely picked up other people's business philosophies, management theories and sales methods.
You could not have helped it. They are all around us. They have been taught - in grade schools, technical institutions, business courses, and in on-the-job training - sometimes consciously, but mostly unconsciously. They have been passed down generation-to-generation. You could not have escaped it. If you were in a business career, you had no choice but to pick them up.
Until now. Now that you are aware of this fact, you can examine your philosophies, theories and methods in running a business, managing people and selling products and services. And once you take a closer look, you can begin to change them, but only if you need to.
The way we see it, there is only one solution to all your problems in running a business, managing people and bringing in strong sales at healthy margins: Build Your Own. Build you own business philosophy. Build your own management theories. Build your own sales methods.
This does not mean that you throw away everything you know and what you have learned. This does not mean that you ignore the best practices being taught by others.
But it does mean that you build your own framework that works for you and then tweak it, change it and evolve it as you grow.
If you are on-board with this idea, the next questions may be: 1) Where do I start? and 2) How do I go about building my own human-centric business philosophy, management theory and selling methods? This is where we can help.

Hi, I am Bhavesh Naik, founder and creative director at Awayre, LLC.
I am probably the most under-qualified person you can find to be doing what I do. By traditional measures, I am not your “typical” trainer, coach or management consultant. I don't have a Ph.D. in Organizational Development or a Masters Degree in Human Resources. I also own no certifications from any coaching and training institutions (and plan to keep it that way).
I have spent more time out in the field, in the trenches, working in the business world, doing the kind of work that my workshop participants do, than in a laboratory, a classroom or in academic pursuits. Everything that I teach has been tried, tested and proven, first on myself, and second in the real world, working with my clients and students, one-on-one, in small groups and large seminars.
