Meet Bodha's founders Karl and Sathish. Two men,
obsessed about enhancing people's core essence while contributing to a larger vision.
Their story started when they met in 2018. At the time, Karl was a consultant, helping different companies to solve various problems. After 25+ years of doing this, he couldn't help but feel that he was not living according to his purpose.
"I wasn't leveraging my core talents and felt I was wasting time. I wasn't fulfilled" Karl said.
He desperately wanted to use his skills, interests & talents that he knew he was capable of thriving with. For Karl, these were Psychology, technology & entrepreneurial.
He thought to himself that he can't be the only one feeling this. And he was right...
Sathish has been experiencing the same problem but from a different angle. As a lifelong meditation practitioner, Sathish was deeply fascinated about looking inside and analyzing his own cognitive processes. After years of doing this, he started to notice some repeated individualistic patterns in the decision process in himself & with others...
There were always some core attributes and innate abilities in a person which made up their "essence" - intelligence, talents, values and personality traits. But there was no system in the world that objectively focused on enhancing these core attributes. The current education & corporate systems were all focussed on fitting people into boxes.
So when Karl & Sathish finally met, they decided to tackle this problem where it was most destructive - in businesses who hire the wrong talent or aren't able to nurture their existing talent to thrive.
They decided to develop Bodha, a platform designed to help these businesses hire the right people, put them into the right teams & nurture them to thrive - in alignment with the larger vision of the company.
Theoretically, there were already platforms that did this. But the ones designed for the recruitment were all based around funnelling people down and hiring the "closest match" - a game of chance... And the ones that measure performance, were designed to make it easier for managers to give feedback, but it was still very subjective and based on a very surface level understanding of the individuals' traits. In either of those scenarios, there was no way of pinpointing IF & WHAT was not working in the companies' hiring and team cohesion efforts.
That is the ONLY platform that identifies the cognitive traits of an individual in detail and then uses that to pinpoint the right person for a role, to align their goals with the company vision or to give objective & relevant performance feedback.
That's why Bodha.AI is able to help companies build cohesive teams, every time!
