Times & Trends Academy conducted ‘Be an Effective Leader’ workshop for students recently at TTA- Deccan. The workshop was conducted by Ms. Ketki Anand, an expert trainer in people skills, and Mr. Amit Agrawal, Founder & Chairman – Times & Trends Academy.
Students who attended the workshop from all the centers witnessed many presentations and videos play that explained the traits that make great leaders out there. Students took part in several group activities that highlighted the importance of being a team-player while being a leader. Students enjoyed the 2-day workshop and they enjoyed participating in the group activities. Students also showed great enthusiasm in the ‘Question & Answer’ session conducted.
Students were asked “which is that one thing in life that you want the most, irrespective of any job that you do or any business that you start.” To this question, students had interesting answers, and all of them had different answers. Some students stated they wanted to earn respect; some wanted to have more power, some wanted to have a sense of accomplishment, some wanted to be problem solvers, etc.
Ms. Ketki Anand, an expert soft-skills trainer, said, “The question whether leaders are born or made is really important here. The whole essence of this two-day workshop was centered on this question. Most of us think that leaders are born, and they cannot be made. But, if you look around and carefully read stories about great leaders, most of them are born due their will power and circumstances. So, the answer whether leaders can be made is that: yeah, definitely. And it is important that students know this because if they believe they can be leaders, they will be leaders.”
Mr. Amit Agrawal said, “I truly believe that students today must be capable of managing the teams, and when given an opportunity to play as a leader, they must be able to hold the reins well. With the objective to make our students acquire the necessary skill-set, we conducted ‘Be an Effective Leader’2-day comprehensive workshop.”
