Kishore Yasarapu, also known as YK, is the founder and lead strategist of NeoStrategy.
Until recently, Kishore was an IT professional, with 20 years of progressive experience in Digital Innovation, Transformation, Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Solution Architecture, Business Development and Global Delivery under his belt. He also has an Executive MBA from IIM Calcutta.
Even though he was successful and sought-after, he felt like there was something missing.
He had always been curious, energetic and eager to push his boundaries. His interests ranged from innovation and futuristic trends to psychology and spirituality. In fact, he found the greatest fulfillment when he connected ideas from diverse fields and solved complex, real-world problems that eluded and frustrated others. But why couldn’t he just be satisfied comfortably climbing the corporate ladder?
After he started making deeper observations of his friends and coworkers, he found that qualifications or connections rarely predicted how successful or happy they were. His aha moment finally came when he took Gallup’s CliftonStrengths test and decoded his psychological DNA.
His top talents were Ideation, Restorative, Strategic, Futuristic and Input. This confirmed why he was always coming up with new ideas, learning constantly and solving problems for fun! He also began to appreciate his knack for coming up with multiple ways to get to the same goal and his future-oriented vision.
Soon, he began developing his talents further by deepening his knowledge base and taking up blogging. When he got rave reviews and feedback from his readers, he realized he was meant to have a greater impact on people’s lives.
That is when he got certified as a Gallup Strengths Coach, Erickson Certified Coach, and Certified NLP Business Practitioner. Finally, in 2018, he took his passion to the next level by quitting his job and starting NeoStrategy.
His mission is to transform his clients’ lives just like he transformed his own and to enable them to chase their biggest dreams. With Kishore you can expect to be constantly challenged, encouraged and enlightened. He promises his clients an unconventional and fun journey with NeoStrategy!
