Pinky Jangra

To say I’m obsessed with all things ‘human development’ would be an understatement! I am absolutely fascinated by what makes us tick, what makes us sick, what helps us survive and what leads us to thrive. I am particularly focussed on bringing wisdom to the workplace with my proprietary resilience training and consulting services. I bring with me 15 years of personal development expertise and over a decade of experience in management consulting and professional services. Having worked with the likes of the NHS, Ministry of Defence, Department of International Trade, other government departments and private sector organisations, I am passionate about helping organisations get the best out of their staff. I enable individuals and teams to better adapt to change and achieve fulfilment and wellbeing at work.

To find out how I can help your organisation or to make any other enquiries, connect with and contact me on LinkedIn linkedin.com/in/pinkyjangra/ and visit pinkyjangra.com.

Break The Rules Or Break Yourself

Break The Rules Or Break Yourself

Releasing The Fear Of Rejection

Releasing The Fear Of Rejection

Alarm bells started ringing when I stopped to ponder how much of my life is driven by a single intention: to avoid rejection. It’s more of my life than I care to admit. In fact, more of my life than I had realised, until I stopped to look at it more closely today. I...

Self Love Is Not What I Thought It Was

The Power Of Negative Emotion

The Power Of Negative Emotion

The happiness industry can lead us to believe that negative emotions are bad. That we must and can be happy all of the time. That feeling negative emotion will attract more bad things into our lives and keep away the good stuff. I know from experience that believing...

The Healing Power of Journaling

What It Means To Love Yourself

What It Means To Love Yourself

We hear it all the time – you must love yourself! If you don’t love yourself, no one else can really love you. The answer to all your woes is self-love. The love you seek outside of you, is the love you really need to give yourself. You get the picture. And I agree...
