One-day Professional Development Workshop by Mr. Sivakumar Palaniappan, Mastering Mind Academy.
How it all started? The blossom day of 30th June (Thursday) was a quick gathering with the team and it was like with no clue there was some chatter here and there, all were gathered in few minutes. Heard the general greetings and hope you all are doing well and in just few minutes we were revealed how our professional skills would get transformed and promising to see a smarter soul within us and get lot more from the ….. was a silence.
Yes! it was about hosting a Professional Development Workshop by a profound and eminent personality Mr. Sivakumar Palaniappan, Mastering Mind Academy.
It was a privilege offered by the company during which we as a team could have an opportunity to understand ourselves, leverage our intelligence to generate a greater impact on our career and hoping to know the dates was the insight of each minds in the gathering.
Swiftly, was the move from the team and with rather no questions was the hands raised symbolically showing a great interest and acceptance to be a part of the workshop. More than words the body language had greater impact and the eager minds were cherished. Sooner were the team reacted to show interest to know more.
The dates were officially announced for 2nd July 2016 at a prominent venue the meeting hall of Le Pebble. Lavish space and alluring interiors cheered us.
More specifically we would say the interest and the devotion was exceptional towards the event was to the mentoring from Mr.Sivakumar Palaniappan, the Professional Speaker, Author, Career Coach and Corporate Trainer. Highly inspiring are his works towards the society, the students, the job seekers, the young employees, corporate and entrepreneurs. Ample number of workshops and with many accolades made us feel privileged to get associated for a day.
The day of the workshop:
Gathered with fresh minds and bright eyes to seek for the professional development skills and so did the event start by 9.30 am with a quick ice-breaking session. All the pondering noise got settled and keenly concentrated over the presentation. The morning session started with a virtual walk through of the principles and disciplines of the personalities and corporate across the globe, in a meager layman understanding we were driven to know actually what are the possibilities and capabilities we are built upon for the massive achievement.
Keeping the environment cool and composed we were confidently led to the enlighten of the corporate world and the desired professional skills. Most of them were awe-struck so as to have been amazed of their hidden capability and with the regret of not having been used skilfully. This transformation boosted the spirits and the team was looking for more to gain.
Just as we shuffled a couple of times with the seats was the time that took us for a relishing and refreshing lunch at Le Pebble Restaurant. After all the muttering and burbling was over and landed to the floor.
Plenty of information and more questions for clarification we gathered to the second half of the session. Dashing though all new concepts and what was immensely learnt were Time management, ethics, creativity, decision handling, communication, dedication, responsibility, smart thinking and hard work, policy adoption, team work and much more. This gave a clear thinking and there were many who realized and thanked the company for creating such workshops and helping in the career of each individual.
The saying of few personalities brought to light. “I am not here to be average, I am here to be awesome”. Few other felt, “Got to be stubborn about the goals and flexible over the methods”. Yet another group with, “Focus on your goal, don’t look in any direction but ahead”, this in turn meant the productivity killer social connectivity like whatsapp, facebook, twitter. More voices promised over the time management, knowledge enhancement and practically following the techniques learnt.
As initially stated the workshop was something like the infinite in benefits allowing each one to gather as much as they wish. The presenter Mr. Sivakumar proved to excel and had won our huge respects. It was something to feel a best friend in him. The vote of thanks was presented in this note and we are looking forward to most such experiences.
