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.”

Back to Teaching- MD & CEO Swarnalatha Iyer now visiting prof at IIPR

With effect from this academic year, MD & CEO Swarnalatha Iyer has assumed the role of visiting professor for the under-graduate and post-graduate programmes in Psychology at IIPR (Indian Institute of Psychology & Research).

Teaching has always been a driving passion for Swarnalatha. She has over 25 years of academic experience as Lecturer and Head of the Department of Psychology at Christ College (now, Christ University). With increasing work in the spheres of social development, enhancement of rural education programmes, counseling, training and organisational consulting over the past few years, teaching had taken a back seat for her. She is now extremely delighted to don the hat of a teacher once again.

“I gain immense satisfaction from teaching. I have a passion for the subject, and introducing the concepts to young minds, and ¬†inspiring them to pursue the field is both challenging and extremely satisfying”

Swarnalatha will be available on campus two days a week, handling both theory and practical classes for UG and PG students.
