About YCM India

YCM was founded because when asked, most people answered 'true' to the following statements.

  • I have been involved in a minor disagreement, a heated argument or a full blown fight with someone.
  • Disputes distract focus from what really matters in life, such as happiness, growth and peace of mind (be it in the personal or professional domain).
  • Prevention is better than cure.
  • I will be valued in my organization if I can prevent or manage disputes effectively with various stakeholders.
  • I have not been trained to deal with conflicts and find solutions on my own.
  • Are these true for you too?
  • YCM equips and empowers you with skills and services to convert conflict into growth opportunities

YCM Values


I take responsibility for every word I say and build on my ability to respond vs. react.


I am a leader with or without a tag. I commit and I show up for myself and for those around me to build a reliable system.

Role Modelling

I practice what I believe and I believe what I practice before I preach.

Self To Society

I constantly travel to-&-fro between self to society for self-awareness. I experiment with a change on myself before I propose a societal level change.

Human Connection

I use compassionate language to build human connection by recognizing needs, and feelings and developing strategies to meet needs and achieve satisfaction.

Sustainability + Growth

I build bottom-up sustainable models and networks. I grow, I co-support those around me to grow and the system we are a part of grows consequentially.
