 HR association of Christ Institute of Management, Ghaziabad organized a one-day workshop on Time management and Stress management on 5th of August, 2017. Ms. Leena Gupta, a trainer with 15 years of experience in the field of training sales and finance professionals engaged the programme. Prioritization matrix with a dynamic diagram presented by her helped the future managers to identify issues of everyday life with relative importance and categorize the most important tasks and least important tasks. Time indeed waits for none. But importantly she cautioned the aspiring managers to set their foot firmly in the firm with its vision and objectives or else to be a victim of stress made by one’s own wimps and fancies!  Ways to beat the stress? Yeah a trainer of her caliber, Ms. Leena had solutions like: multi-tasking, manage and control crisis, increase productivity in our work place etc. 

While emphasizing the dos and don’ts be taken care of while being in a corporate space the speaker highlighted the concept of thought: Thought is the seed of idea. All actions result from thought. The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. Every individual needs to manage his or her thoughts to maintain action, habit and character. A well characterized manager is the product a B-School in NCR must produce, indeed. And the workshop did the job to accomplish this goal.

Soft Skill Acquisition- Need of Managers

“Technical skills can get you a job, but soft skills can make you or break you as a manager”. To enhance our knowledge in soft skills and to augment the potential in these essential skills the student community of this promising Management school of NCR were given an opportunity on 11-Aug-2017 from 11:15 am – 1:15 pm in IIIrd Floor – Seminar Hall by Dr Rakesh O Bacon to interact and inculcate many such skills.

The session was highly informative and the resource person made it exceptionally interesting through brainstorming activities, live demos and theatric performances.

Mere talking do not do the whole: Listening, that too effective listening constitute the major factor in imbibing interpersonal skills. Ways and means to achieve them enlightened us to enhance communication quality. It, in turn, encourages optimistic attitude, healthy relations and improved participation.                                                   

We were able to assimilate the fact that the Communication Quality Enhancement leads to better decision- making in an organization and that we could relate it to enriched team work.

The session taught the students how Interpersonal communication skills are essential for developing other key life skills like being able to communicate well with others and how it becomes essential in solving problems that inevitably occur both in their private and professional lives.

Prof. Hadrine Pereira, Head of Placement cell, CIM Ghaziabad, and my fellow coordinator and senior Christite, Liza Elizabeth Anthony gave not only an opportunity personally to me but a mentoring support to conduct in the best possible way. It was a great experience to organize such an event.

News of the week

– August 10, 2017

Every news affects us in some way or the other. It reflects and report the trends and happening from all over the world. News gives an insight on the national, international, local, social, political, cultural etc. aspects of the life. Thus it becomes imperative for all budding managers, to know their surroundings and have an understanding of what is going on in business, economy and around them. In order to fulfil the above said, a session titled ‘News of the Week’ was organized on August 10, 2017 at 4:10 PM in Seminar Hall. The News were presented by Mehul Rajvanshi (PGDM IV) and Priya Agrawal (PGDM I).

It was an in-depth analysis of few important news covering business, economy, sports and international events, and their impact on various segments.

Evidently news can be summarised by saying that news is called the mirror of the world. Further, it can be said that the news is the guardian of the democracy. Since news keeps the general public informed, and well-informed public is essential for the success of the democracy. News adds to the knowledge of the receiver by informing them about the new discoveries, inventions, and products.

Saturday saw the big men growing bigger and smashing ladies growing super smashers!! The entire final match was videographed for the sheer joy of seeing the astounding smashes and forearm techniques of the shakers of badminton court.
