Sameer is the Founder of the Institute for Generative Leadership, India. The Institute for Generative Leadership (IGL) enables leaders, managers, professionals, and coaches to take their leadership impact and the impact of their teams, organizations, and clients to the next level. Contrary to academic degree programs, the Institute focuses on developing embodied skills on the job through practices that enhance and complement the skills you already have, not just on understanding concepts.

Sameer is the Founder of the Gift Your Organ Foundation, a Charitable Trust set up in February 2011, along with other founders and key members of the team. The founders jointly felt a civic responsibility to address the huge problem of organ donation in India, to educate the community, and to promote this life saving cause.

The Vision of the Gift Your Organ Foundation is that There will be no deaths in India due to shortage of organ donors.

“The Gift Your Organ Foundation pioneered the Green Heart Driver’s License in India and offered this in 2 states of India.”
