“Mind Jugglers” - A Management Workshop

The proceedings of the second management workshop held on the 30th of January 2016 for the students of MBA, B.B.A,  B.Com and B.Sc are as follows:

- The workshop started with a discussion on the need of skill enhancement and its impact. This was conducted by Ms. Ritu Sharma where she first related a short story with emphasis on human psychology and explained the requirement of skill enhancement not only for students but also for employees at various levels in an organisation.  This further highlighted the importance of soft skill training in colleges / organisations which is as important as technical training. This also renders to recruitments and placements, because the selection panel during recruitments through a psychological cross questioning session may try to arrive to the conclusion of the right man for the right job irrespective the educational qualifications and grades of the candidates.

- The next was a group discussion on “The Coke and Pepsi Logo War” this topic had been given to the candidates a day prior to the workshop for them to be able to understand the topic better and be able to relate to the same in the course of the discussion with the right content. All The students were divided into two groups. They were given 10 minutes for inter indulgence and discussions and thereafter it was a good exhibit of speakers voicing opinions and also understanding midway the do’s and don’ts of such discussions on a public forum. The discussion started with the first time when Coke had indulged into creating a LOGO for itself and then the change of name from Coca Cola to Coke and then some changes in the LOGO. Whereas Pepsi which got launched in the market later has been over a period of time been changing its LOGO as per the changing times and fashion.

- Simultaneously four candidates from each batch were made the observers who were to study and analyse the discussion and prepare a category wise list comprising of Active Audience, Sleeping Audience, Dead Audience and Problem Creators. This was a fun exercise for the observers as they enjoyed being the judges. This was essentially done to make the candidates understand that as mentors when they are corrected it is not criticism whereas it to a great extent is corrective criticism aiming to lead to transformation of minds in the positive context. And as the observers for various groups came up with their observations, the participants were very positive about the judgement declared.  

- After the discussion an open house feedback on the topic was staged between Mrs. Ritu Sharma and the candidates. The candidates had questions related with the market and how a beverage war between brands is related with consumer behaviour. Also the candidates were made to understand the correct way of dealing with such discussions

The workshop ended after the the students were given a brief about the upcoming workshop on “Business Plan Presentations”

"Reflections” - A Management Workshop

Management workshops form a very important part of the training being imparted to students of MBA, B.Tech, BBA, M.Com, B.Com, B.C.A etc as a part of the curriculum of Centre for Leadership and Development (CLD) which deals with corporate relations and placements. These workshops help the students understand the practical requirements of placements and also gives them an open house to be able to interact not only with the trainer but also with each other on topics related with their career growth. These workshops offer an intensive yet open learning environment for the students and rejuvenates their morale as all participate in the exchange of views and ideas. Further the filters that the companies use for screening students for jobs and as interns are communication skills, group discussions, body language, content which is out of the books, ability to handle personal interviews, and these management workshops give a platform to the candidates to understand and thereof exhibit their understanding of the same.

The endeavour at RNB Global University is to shape lives and transform minds helping the students explore the ample opportunities as per their interests and expertise which is a larger picture of academics.

The first workshop on the 23rd of January 2016 was titled “Reflections” and the proceedings of this workshop were as follows:
- Familiarisation with the concept of Management Workshop, where the students were made to understand the concept so as to make them accept these workshops and attend them willingly so that training becomes a two way process.
Perceptions (Analysis of self). A presentation with different pictures without titles and the students were asked to randomly call out what they think the picture unveils. This exercise helped the mentors to make students understand the importance of perceptions of self without letting other perceptions influence their way of thinking and approach.
- The “Passing the Parcel Game”, a management game , where a packet was circulated from one student to the other and the students  found with the parcel were asked to select one person from all present in the seminar hall ;who they wanted should ask them a question.  This was followed by answer to the question asked.
- Group Discussion for two groups of 10 each on the topic “Impact of 9/11 attacks on the economy” was conducted. Participating in this helped the students understand the dos and don’ts of Group Discussion when briefed about it. 

Thus the workshop was an enriching learning experience for the students. The workshop ended after the students were given a brief about the upcoming workshop on “Mind Jugglers”
