This year the theme I’m choosing as an area of focus on World Mental Health Day is Mental health at the workplace.
We always want our lives under control. We want to manage it all, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Well, you are never marked or judged on how much you have in control or how much are you messing things up in life. What really matters is how well can you handle the “In control situation” and “Messed up situation”. Understand that life is beyond earning in general and way beyond financial gains alone. So here are some tips for you to handle these situations well and keep your mental health intact.
Work can be pressurizing and demanding, remember your only purpose in life is not to earn but to live with a purpose of doing well for yourself and your loved ones.
Love yourself: it all starts with loving yourself, value yourself and you will never have any doubts about yourself. Be aware of your strengths and weakness, understand them and work towards helping yourself to grow and shine. Invest some time in you, talk to yourself and motivate yourself every day.
It will never be easy: many things will not turn out the way you planned them to be. Who said it will be easy? Always be prepared to welcome the unwanted and deal with it with an open mind.
Be thankful: the trouble starts with you not being happy for what you have. It’s not bad to acquire wealth or work for more of it. But, remember to always be thankful for what you have.
Manage your social life: remember to have a social structure of support apart from your family, so you know where to ease out.
Your most important accessory is your SMILE… ! So wear one, and rest assured you have conquered half the battle.
No one remembers who you are or what your name is? All they remember is how you treat them. Treat everyone well, with respect and dignity.
Love the idea that you were born on this planet with a purpose. Take control of your life and have fun everyday. And lastly, remember that it’s not others but you alone who control yourself.
Happy working …. Sometimes you need to take it easy.

Training interventions for corporates: consultant & trainer Sangeeta talks about her experiences working on a Business Communication workshop for our new client
In early December, Sangeeta, consultant and trainer at SAI Pvt. Ltd., conducted a Business Communication & Presentation Skills workshop for one of our recently associated clients, Pharmed Ltd. She writes about her experience in this blog:
A major challenge faced in organisations in the pharmaceutical industry, like Pharmed, is that the field employees- product developers, researchers, transcriptionists, marketing/ sales strategists and even human resource personnel- do not directly interact with external stakeholders or clients the company deals with. Most of their interactions are internal, either inter or intra departmental. Because of this, most employees feel that it is enough to focus on functional and operational competencies that are directly related to their job/ role for success, and important professional skills like communication take a back seat.
It becomes imperative today for employees of an organization to learn how to communicate effectively in order to grow professionally. It is undoubtedly one of the most fundamental skills which impacts an individual’s career growth and workplace effectiveness. An organisation’s progress in realizing its goals and objectives is also largely dependent on how well its employees are able to communicate with one another and with external stakeholders.
With this in mind, Pharmed associated with SAI Pvt. Ltd. to conduct a one-day workshop on Business Communication for its first-in-line employees. The primary objectives of the workshop were to equip participants with practices and skills to improve their day-to-day communication (face to face as well as telephonic), their ability to communicate effectively via email, and tips to increase their effectiveness as presenters.
I like to keep my sessions highly interactive. It is almost necessary for me as trainer to have my audience moving around, talking to one another, sharing experiences and working with people they have never worked with before. I design ice-breakers in such a way as to bring people together in teams where it becomes imperative for them to work with new people. Every concept or practice is followed up with an activity or exercise where participants are urged to share perspectives and insights. When participants work with one another in applying a concept or practice, the take-away is greater than that of a trainer lecturing them on its applicability, as they are able to see how to make the practice relevant to their specific jobs while discussing it with someone from the same functional field. Feedback testimonials from participants also reveal how they were able to take back a lot more from the session due to the level of interaction.
