Welcome to this installment of The Wellness Universe’s ‘A Conversation With …’ interview series! We will feature interviews from some of our amazing WU World Changers so you can learn about who they are as a person, their profession, mission, and their why!’
Welcome to A Conversation with Jothi Dugar –
The Wellness Universe directory is a resource and community filled with Change-Makers; we call WU World-Changers (Wellness Universe World-Changers). Today we want to introduce you to Jothi Dugar, The Chaos Guru! Her mission is to integrate holistic well-being programs to help overwhelmed tech leaders reclaim their wellness, happiness, time, and freedom.
Hello Jothi, will you please tell us about yourself?
I am Jothi Dugar, and I have many roles and hats I wear. I used to think I needed to condense it all into one or just choose one, but that would mean limiting myself to being one “thing,” which I’m not! So, just imagine a puzzle, and all the different parts of the puzzle of my life that all fit harmoniously together. I am known as The Chaos Guru, and I teach corporate leaders and emerging leaders how to harness the power of chaos as their superpower to become conscious, authentic, and empowered leaders.
Being in the technology industry, specifically a Cybersecurity Executive, I always thought I am a left brain focused, analytical, “type” of person. Well, one day the Universe showed me another way, a whole new world of possibilities and curiosity and creativity, the world of spirituality, holistic wellness, mind-body-energy, and much more. I was given six weeks to live after the birth of my third baby due to an incompetent OB’s negligence and mistakes.
More importantly, I would not be here serving my mission and my purpose in life reaching out to all of you to inspire YOU to live your best life!
Jothi, what is it that inspires you?
Coming from a traumatic childhood being an only child, being independent and living in survival mode 24×7, I thought I was doing pretty well in the world being somewhat “sane” and living a successful life. However, it was not until I really started digging deep and doing the inner work that I realized how much healing I had to do to truly bring my authentic self out again, and really thrive in life. I am inspired by enabling others to live their life to the fullest and bring out their authentic and best self.
Will you please tell us what you call yourself and explain what it is that you do?
I call myself The Chaos Guru, as I help corporate leaders and emerging leaders harness the power of chaos to become authentic, conscious, and empowered leaders. What does that even mean you ask?
Using a variety of rapid, easy, and effective mind-body-energy hacks, combined with neuroscience, cognitive and behavioral psychology, as well as holistic empowered leadership coaching, I offer transformational leadership programs that include a holistic wellness approach to leading from within in an organization.
Serving others through all the gifts I have been given in life is my motto, so in addition to my coaching programs, I am also passionate about serving other through my writing and being an author, as well as my ability to speak and inspire others through my professional speaking roles.
How exactly does that help someone?
I notice that corporate professionals climb up the ladder to leadership roles without any real, grounded training on how to be a great leader. Having been under the guidance of good leaders, great leaders, and those that could have truly benefitted from some training. By going through my programs that are high-touch, comprehensive, and involve deep transformation, leaders have a profound impact in maximizing their potential and effectiveness as a leader of themselves and in their organization.
Why are you so passionate about helping people learn how to live consciously?
I believe that the majority of us live our life “unconsciously” and navigate life with a life by default manner. When we pause and learn easy and simple, yet truly effective ways to live our lives consciously, we are all empowered to live our life by design which helps us to be true leaders of ourselves and for others we serve.
Did any specific life experience prompt you to follow this path?
Yes indeed. Everything in life has a purpose, is happening for you, and preparing you for a future moment to come. I was going through a traumatic emotional, mental, and physical experience with numerous doctors and surgeons unable to determine the solution to heal me due to the complexity of all the mistakes my OB had made. I had chosen to believe that there was another way for me – other than putting myself through the hands or under the knife of the western medical healthcare system. I had healed myself and then learned numerous modalities to serve others for a reason.
I was, for the longest time, very confused as to whether I needed to leave my Technology-Cyber leadership career to pursue helping people through holistic wellness. However, even that happened for a reason. I was able to reach a conclusion that I am meant to serve both worlds as both worlds really need each other!
How long have you been doing this?
I have been in the Cyber industry for almost two decades, in the Holistic Wellness industry for the last four years, in the coaching and mentoring arena for the last decade, and in the human centric conscious leadership focus for the last several years. I realize I am a mixed bag of a variety of different gifts, and guess what? I love it.
Will you share a story of how you have made a difference in someone’s life?
Actually, I find my work life changing for myself as well as those I offer support to, whether they are in corporate technology, seeking a holistic treatment for their health concerns, or just seeking to live an authentic and empowered life by design. Those seeking how to thrive in their life, not just survive it, come to my leadership programs as well as consult with me one-on-one. People have told me their vibe is raised the moment they speak with me, even on our initial Chaos Clarity Call where the process is initiated prior to joining the program. It’s so rewarding!
What’s next on the horizon for you?
My goal is to touch the lives of at least ten million people over the next ten years using all my different gifts, services, offerings, and modalities. I truly believe that if I could inspire just one person a day with what I say, do, am, write, or take action on, I have done my job for the day.
