Hi, my name is Tahmid Chowdhury, and I am a transformational coach and writer. I drive positive change.

I believe in the power of humans to shift the status quo. We do this by harnessing the power of difference – difference of ideas, background and thought. This makes us stronger.

We are held back by our structures around us, which stop us from changing the world. Whether that be the organisations around us, societal expectations or our own beliefs about ourselves.

I coach people to overcome the challenges they face to make the world a better place.

I write a weekly newsletter, based upon personal development, diversity & inclusion and organisational culture. I host the podcast ‘Behind the Suit and Tie’, where I speak to people from different walks of life to ask them more about their lives, interests and what their personal motivations are.

Outside of work, I love to travel and learn languages. I speak English, French and Spanish. I am currently taking weekly classes to learn Bengali. To wind down I also do yoga (when I get the chance!)

  • Managing my life’s dopamine rollercoaster
    Recently, I realised how boring I had made my own life. That’s not to say my life is objectively ‘boring’. To many it probably seems I do lots of fun and adventurous things. But subjectively, it’s felt unexciting. The things I’ve been doing haven’t felt particularly enjoyable. In the quest for commitment, consistency and hailing ‘the grind’, I seemed to lose the idea that things were meant to be fun. I think I have been suppressing my chaotic nature. I’m an emotional being who thrives upon a mix of planned and spontaneous excitement. It’s what makes me buzz and really thrive in life.
  • It’s coming home. Or at least I did, I think.
    Just as I arrived at St Pancras, my internet reconnected. I refreshed the BBC Sports page to find Ollie Watkins score a 90th minute winner. Welcome home. Perhaps football will be coming home too? But is the UK actually home for me anymore? Not only that, but this was the first time coming back to the UK since the General Election. The result was both a mix of momentousness and anticlimax. For the first time in a long while I felt like I could actually be somewhat content with the result. That’s probably the first time in the last ten elections I’ve followed. More fundamentally though, I find myself falling into the sense of questioning how much will really be different.
  • Keeping focus on the positives in our lives
    When our life routine gets thrown up in a huge way, it can be hard to not fall into a sense of despair. I’ve questioned myself a lot. Sometimes I’ve felt guilty for taking time for myself. Other times, I’ve wondered whether I’ll ever recover again. These are legitimate questions, and is a key part of the process. Nonetheless, solely focusing on them only leads to a downward spiral of anguish. Our brains tendency to think negatively is much stronger than its ability to look at the positives. It’s part of our survival mechanism, and it was necessary to keep ourselves alive during our evolution. So it is up to us to set a better balance.
