Our Story: Why we do what we do.

As with many great stories, the creation of Org Whisperers began through the lens of a child and a deep desire to see change in his world. Our Founder & CEO, Ravi Verma, grew up in Calcutta and remembers the excitement of waiting for his dad to get home from work each day so they could play together. His dad wanted to play, but many times he felt beaten down and drained of all of his energy.

Even though Ravi’s dad was a smart, passionate, hard-working man, the auto manufacturing plant he worked for did not understand how to use his potential. That left him feeling discouraged and unfulfilled, which spilled over into the quality of his home life. As a child, Ravi vowed that he would not let this happen to anyone else’s mom or dad when he grew up.

Ravi’s newfound purpose carried into his adult life as his career in software engineering rapidly advanced into management, where he learned techniques to encourage, develop, and utilize the capabilities of his teams. He found that many organizations struggle to harness the potential of their people, especially in the face of change, stress, and conflict. They unintentionally stifle creativity and shut down unique perspectives.

Unleashing the hidden potential.

Ravi founded Org Whisperers to work with organizations on a deeper level to see the challenges that are causing pain in the hearts of its people and unleash their hidden potential.

The Org Whisperers on our team help our clients align around measurable business and cultural outcomes with assessments, scoreboards, a co-created approach, and a series of controlled experiments utilizing our carefully customized playbooks, tools, training, and coaching.

We love to see the improvement in the way teams, stakeholders, and management collaborate and the resiliency they develop as they face such an unpredictable and uncontrollable world. 

Teams increase their accountability, knowledge, and consistency, taking pride in their results. Product Owners become more value-minded and develop a stronger sense of vision and autonomy. Stakeholders have more visibility and provide timely feedback, resulting in higher-quality products for their end users.

Not only do organizations realize success, but their teams go home with joy and plenty of energy left to devote to their families. And that is why we do what we do…

We strive to be different. Here's how.

Real-World Experience.

Sharing wisdom from tested experiments to help you avoid crucial mistakes.

Engagements with our clients are not based on something we read or learned in training. Our team has 20+ years of experience in software delivery, training, mentoring, consulting, and executive & team coaching. We’ve earned wisdom from repeated experiments in diverse industries, helping our clients solve real-world problems.

Outcome-Focused.

Relentless focus on measurable, sustainable business value.

We align teams utilizing data-driven scoreboards, so they can visualize trends and adjust their approach quickly. As certified ROI Professionals focusing on outcome-based learning, we challenge all levels of the organization to tie the knowledge we impart back to sustainable, measurable business goals. We are so serious about this that we have launched our own scoreboard product to make it easier for our clients to succeed. 

Unique Multidisciplinary Approach.

Providing a one-of-a-kind experience by integrating multidisciplinary, ground-breaking techniques.

We realize that organizations are complex and require nuanced approaches to solve their problems. This is why our team doesn't just rely on ideas from one discipline, but we consistently learn and integrate new ideas from thought leaders in multiple industries. This helps us customize our approach to suit diverse markets, industries, cultures, and preferences. 

  • Certified Scrum.org Professional Scrum Training
  • Sharon Bowman’s “Training from the Back of the Room”
  • Co-Active coaching techniques from Co-Active Institute
  • Design Thinking methods of the Neilsen Norman Group
  • ROI-based learning from the ROI Institute
  • 3 Cups of Tea communication and feedforward method 

Customized, Fit for Purpose Roadmaps.

We walk beside you and co-create an experience catered to your unique challenges!

You won’t get a cookie-cutter approach with us. We begin with an Agility Assessment to gather valuable insights from all levels of accountability on what's functioning effectively and what needs improvement. As we uncover the barriers hindering the progress toward your goals, we will blend our unique approach to create a customized roadmap just for your success!

Who is an Org Whisperer?

An Org Whisperer is someone who has learned to communicate with executives, stakeholders, and teams on a deeper level, observing and listening carefully to the thoughts, experiences, and challenges of organizations. We work with our clients to co-create a customized roadmap that specifically meets their needs. To achieve success, we expect and demand the best from ourselves and our clients, and we will not take on a client if there is no support at the executive level.

Gaining trust and partnership with the executive team first, Org Whisperers uses various techniques and interactions at all levels of the organization to bring about a wave of transformation needed for success.

The ocean wave representing our brand is two-fold.

It's representative of what makes us unique in what we do. The ocean is a very peaceful, harmonious encounter that washes away conflict and pain and encourages self-reflection and improvement. We implement proven techniques that foster this experience as a large part of our client engagement.

Alternatively, it can be extremely challenging to harness the power of the ocean. Learning to navigate uncharted waters and rough seas takes time before you master it; each time, you learn from your mistakes. It isn't easy, but once you do, the success is exhilarating!

We are demanding of our clients, and we challenge them to realize they can achieve more than they ever thought possible!

They come away with more confidence, clarity, and purpose. Unleashing the potential of these teams creates a resilient organization that can succeed in this ever-changing and uncertain world. But if you encounter a Great White Shark in there, well, you are on your own!

Using @ORSC methodology, Monica starts the journey with the team by educating them about behavior patterns that may be present in the teams and can be dysfunctional. By understanding what serves that team and what does not, she helps the team progress in finding safety and communicating with respect. When they feel safe, teams are ready to share their ideas, problems, and beliefs. They become intentional and conscious in their relationship, which helps them to achieve their goals and solve problems quickly.
