Please Go Through Everything Before your Session

Common Questions

1. How do you usually work with clients?

Delivery of the programme:

This takes the form of a blend of approaches, which includes 1:1 coaching via video link, group coaching webinars and online learning. Experiential exercises, facilitate and embed new insights.

There is also a LiveWell masterclass membership site, where you can interact with peers and learn from and gain support from them. You will also be able to share your breakthroughs, for others to learn from.

Positive accountability to yourself, to make the changes needed in your life to achieve your goals, is built into the programme. Your peer group will also support you to stay accountable.


2. What outcomes will I get from attending the programme? What are the learning objectives?

The goal is to ensure that you, as a leader, are empowered and equipped through coaching, to transform at a deep level and to tap into your own resourcefulness.

You will gain and embed the knowledge, skills, mindset and behaviours, to optimise and sustain, your resilience and performance. You will achieve a better life balance, using the LiveWell Framework and move to get to where you want to be in life. Thriving and taking your team(s) with you too. Knowing what support is available and how you can incorporate it, as and when needed, will reduce your risk of burnout.

3. What is resilience?

Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. (Oxford English Dictionary).

It is the ability to overcome and cope even when there are barriers or setbacks. Resilience can be taught and focuses on emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual components. Resilience enhances your quality of life and decreases stress, which is linked to burnout. Cultivating the ability to view challenges as opportunities.

We will assess where your current resilience levels are. We will plan how to increase and sustain your resilience and that of your teams’ and how to work with your organisation to can do to support this. 

4. What is burnout?

Burn-out is defined in the World Health Organisation’s International Classification of Disease – version 11 (ICD-11) as follows:
“Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:
• feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
• increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and
• reduced professional efficacy.

Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”

It is essential for employers to put into place key processes and systems, using evidence and best practice, to reduce the risk of burnout as well as facilitate support when needed for staff burnout.

Leaders and their staff, can in addition, optimise their own resilience and wellbeing, to reduce their risk, or improve recovery from, burnout, and thrive, using a bespoke coaching package created for them. The LiveWell Mastermind is such a programme.

5. What can I expect on the call?

We will discuss your current situation, what you’d like to change and carry out a high level analysis so we can determine what’s working well and crucially, the root issue of what’s NOT working too. Once we’re both clear on what’s going on there, we will discuss your goals.

6. Who is Dr Sridevi Kalidindi?

Dr Sri Kalidindi is an executive and life coach, a doctor, author, teacher, academic, Board Trustee, national NHS clinical leader, wife and mother of two (or three if you include the dog – AKA the fur-baby)!

7. How do I enrol?

There are three main ways for clients to enrol. You may enrol:

  1. yourself individually,
  2. use your personal development budget or,
  3. through your organisation.

 For organisations, this investment in the development of key people, demonstrates how much they are valued. Optimising potential, retaining talent and achieving organisational objectives, are just some of the returns on investment.

Some People We’ve Worked With

“Sri had an exceptional method to delineate the underlying mental blocks stopping me from transitioning to the next level of my professional life and her calm yet professional manner catalysed my progression to a deeper understanding of my inner limiting beliefs.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Sri for professional life coaching as the results are truly spectacular!”

Dr. Tharshini Ramalingam

GPSI cardio-oncology, The Royal Brompton Hospital; GP Partner, Oxted Health Centre

“Excellent and helpful process. Sri was an amazing listener and helped me come to very important and powerful realisations that undoubtedly will help on my way to achieving my career goals, that thanks to her, I was able to clearly identify.

Sri is an excellent and capable coach. I would highly recommend her! I know she will go on to help many more people and they’ll be lucky to have a coach like Sri.”

Visiting Senior Clinical Lecturer

“I am writing to thank you and perhaps to let others in my position know the growth that this journey has yielded.

I am struck by the impact. I did not expect this in such a short amount of time. As I write this I realise that the process cannot be reduced to quantity. Coaching is a relationship that brings about qualitative changes in both parties. You said that you believed in the power of coaching to release the potential in others as it had done in you.”

Chair of Trust-wide Women’s Leadership Forum

“I found the process useful. The time line of events, which was heavily dominated by work activities, was a powerful insight to my life/my view of my life.

Articulating this was helpful because it made me feel uncomfortable to realise the domination of work. The interconnectedness between core areas of the balance wheel made me realise where and why change needed to commence.”

My coach was amazing, I have participated in a few coaching programs over the years and for me, there is something very different when you are working with someone from a clinical/mental health background. You can unlock things that you just can’t do with a coach without that clinical experience.
I believe my employers are now getting a much improved version of me, I am confident in a way I have never been before. I am not afraid to speak up in meetings and find that I manage the everyday stress of the job much more effectively now.
This coaching program has helped me to overcome aspects of myself that I had wrangled with for over 30 years. Inevitably in helping me to understand myself better and giving me tools to deal with different situations, my performance at work has improved and my professional self has developed. I would absolutely recommend this coaching to others, particularly if you know there are things in yourself which are holding you back.
