Personality Development Workshop for students of University of Agricultural Sciences

MD & CEO, Swarnalatha Iyer, recently conducted a two-day workshop on personality development for the students of University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru. The need for a programme of this nature was felt by the management as majority of the students were from a rural background. Therefore, the topics decided were such that students could gain maximum benefit from the workshop.

The topics covered were:

  • Building Self- confidence
  • Communication Skills
  • Positive Mental Attitude
  • Time Management
  • Motivation & Goal Setting

The workshop consisted of games, exercises, group discussions and practice sessions to help students reflect upon their behaviour and thereby create a positive shift in their thinking and actions. The feedback from students towards this programme was very positive. They expressed their need for more of such programmes.

Swarnalatha says: “The students were highly interactive, and participated with zeal and enthusiasm, though the workshop was scheduled over the weekend. Overall it was a very satisfying experience for me. At the onset, students shared their apprehensions with me- most of them had certain inhibitions owing to their rural background. By the close of day 2, the same students expressed to me how I had helped them to uncover their strengths and goodness, and had motivated them to tap into their potential fearlessly. Such experiences fuel my passion for empowering talented youngsters.”
