Changing The Leopard’s Spots – A Human Lab, is an integrated mental approach to Altering ones Perceptions and Comprehending Possibilities. This is done through the use of latest tools available in the field of Neurosciences.

We understand and appreciate that Self Confidence, Self Esteem and a

Motivating vision for life make a substantial difference in how well people

can deliver. What is needed is a method that pulls out all the stops and provides people with a mindset amenable to focus and achieve. Those are the prime area of focus of Changing The Leopard’s Spots – A Human Lab.

This program is conducted by the professionally qualified and internationally acclaimed psychotherapist Dr AS Tavkarr, who is associated with many premier organizations like THE TAJ GROUP OF HOTELS, TATA MOTORS, ALFA LAVAL, BHEL, COGNIZANT, ICICI BANK among many others as well as institutes like THE INDIRA INSTITUTE, MITCON B School, SADHU VASWANI INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT, BHARTI UNIVERSITY, SOLAPUR, AMRAVATI UNIVERSITY, CANTERBURY UNIVERSITY UK and others.

This program explains to participants in a practical and easy to understand way:

• The various facets of the human mind and its various functions.

• How we store “tapes” of the past and how this has a direct impact

on our behaviour / life.

• It also provides us with an effective and powerful way to get rid of any baggage that we may be carrying.

• Finally, it enables us to re program our minds such that we can approach challenges at the workplace and otherwise with a more confident and productive / effective outlook.

What is and Why Neuroscience ?

Alfred Habdank Schaerbeek Korzybski once said “God May Forgive

You For Your Sins, But Your Nervous System Won’t”. So true.

Today Neuroscience is called the scientific study of the nervous system. Traditionally, neuroscience has been seen as a branch of biology. However, it is currently an interdisciplinary science that collaborates with other fields such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, physics, and psychology. The term neurobiology is usually used interchangeably with the term neuroscience, although the former refers specifically to the biology of the nervous system, whereas the latter refers to the entire science of the nervous system.

Today the scope of neuroscience has broadened to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system. The techniques used by neuroscientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain. Recent theoretical advances in neuroscience have also been aided by the study of neural networks.

“The task of neural science is to explain behaviour in terms of the activities of the brain. How does the brain marshal its millions of individual nerve cells to produce behaviour, and how are these cells influenced by the environment...? The last frontier of the biological sciences — their ultimate challenge — is to understand the biological basis of consciousness and the mental processes by which we perceive, act, learn, and remember”.

— Eric Kandel, Principles of Neural Science.

Behavioural neuroscience (also known as biological psychology, biopsychology, or psychobiology) is the application of the principles of biology (viz., neurobiology) to the study of genetic, physiological, and developmental mechanisms of behaviour in humans.

Behavioural neuroscientists study similar themes and issues as academic psychologists. As a result, the bulk of literature in behavioural neuroscience deals with mental processes and behaviours that are shared across different models such as:

Sensation and Perception / Motivated Behaviour (Hunger, Thirst, Sex) / Control Of Movement / Learning And Memory / Sleep And Biological Rhythms / Emotion

However, with increasing technical sophistication and with the development of more precise non-invasive methods that can be applied to human subjects, behavioural neuroscientists are beginning to contribute to other classical topic areas of psychology, philosophy, and linguistics, such as:

Due to the integrated approach built into to the Changing The Leopard’s Spots program, most participants have also experienced alterations in their neural pathways and networks, due to which they experienced being Re-Born, more Confident and higher levels of Motivation and Self-Esteem, also more focused in their personal, professional and social lives where by bringing about a balance in these areas. Some have even got rid of their Anger and a few of their permanent Phobias where by boosting performance.

A few other benefits that participants over the years have experienced :

• Breaking of negative thought patterns which are many times self sabotaging and lessening the pessimistic approach towards all aspects of life mainly relationships.

• Stoppage of the blame games which most of us are involved in on a daily basis, and are able to become responsible towards one’s own self and one’s own thought patterns.

• Learned to manage stress levels much efficiently.

• Learned to psych up and down.

• Enhanced performance at meetings, negotiations, and presentations

• Enhanced personal effectiveness in communicating and managing

• Create compelling goals

• Created own personal state of excellence and maintain a resourceful state in others/ developed creativity and flexibility

• Become more positive

• Changed unwanted behaviours and habits in positive ways

• Increased flexibility of behaviour

• Be clear about what matters to them

In many ancient civilizations and scriptures, Human Beings are also referred to as Thought Identities. Changing The Leopard’s Spots is all about understanding your thought patterns (why do I think the way I think ?) and the process which are taking place in the background which is giving you your thinking pattern (the thinking behind your thinking). So by understanding and altering the background the foreground automatically changes.

Hence we say that Changing The Leopard’s Spots, is an extremely powerful self-improvement program wherein you can undergo a complete metamorphosis of yourself by cutting off your mental flab.

A Few Testimonials about Changing The Leopards Spots Program :

“I attended Dr. Tavkarr's Leadership Program - "Changing the Leopard's Spots" in Feb 2012. "Human beings are not built for failure" - these were his starting words and they immediately mesmerized me. Dr. Tavkarr is a leading expert in NLP. Thanks to him, I found answers to all my questions which have troubled me throughout my life. I have attended several international corporate programs on Leadership; however, Dr. Tavkarr's program was the best purely because of the connect and rapport he builds with his magnetic personality. I felt that a surgeon operated on my mind. It was a clean surgery and the incision was made through my thoughts, went on repairing emotional tissues,

strengthened attitudinal muscles and empowered my memory. I have emerged as a better person. My whole personality is vibrating with my novel purpose and the satisfaction of "home coming" through "self-discovery" remains unparalleled. Dr. Tavkarr integrates the best of ancient spirituality with modern Leadership techniques and NLP. He creates magic with his students by unlocking tremendous human potential. I strongly recommend all the global and entrepreneurial leaders to attend his programs!” – Vishal Nandimath – GM - Operations, Infotek Netalia Limited.


Peeling off the layers is a very painful process. The wound is raw. All that is impure has to flow out. That is even more painful. So the wound has to left open. A lot of disillusionment follows. Senseless, hopeless, sleep. Sleep does not heal the wound. It helps the impurities to flow out ... completely. Then comes the vacant feeling. Completely listless. Meaningless. A blank mind. A mind without thoughts, then feels like life without enthusiasm to live. Life without breath!

The mind blanks out at its own will. The struggle continues. This is the purifying process. The mind is finally free of all the garbage. The dump collected over years, maybe centuries, lifetimes ... A mind free, empty - a state of stupor.

Then comes faith. It comes from deep within. Faith manifests itself. It’s a feeling - of comfort, love, being cared for. A sound sleep follows. This time, sleep fills the mind with faith. The body is exhausted. It tries to go against the mind. The body now is fighting a losing battle. It protests, it induces fatigue, the mind is winning ... Now there is no struggle, no fight. There is a lot of compassion. Faith and compassion together heal the body.

Finally, the body is relaxed, realises its existence because of the mind and the twain meet.

The entire struggle, pain, fear, anger now takes a new meaning. They turn into learning’s, experiences which are bound to be. Experiences which form a part of this existence. Existence now finds meaning in experience. The mind now learns to BE. Reassured. Loved. – Does Not Wish To Be Named

"The more I ponder on Changing The Leopards Spot’s Program, the more I realize that it has provided immense benefits. To exhaustively describe every experience is something that would run into a very detailed narrative. However, benefits that I can very clearly identify are: Reduced stressed levels and a better quality of sleep, Substantial reduction in anxiety, a better quality of interaction with others, a feeling of calmness and confidence, a softened attitude towards negative events of the past. Very definitely, Changing The

Leopards Spots program is an excellent course for those seeking a higher level of confidence and positive thinking." - Milind Kher, Corporate Trainer, Mumbai
