Pune: Gera Developments’ ChildCentricTM Homes recently conducted one of the first customized training programs aimed exclusively at the children in its community where the focus was the child’s understanding of his or her ambitions through “Unleash the star in You”. Dale Carnegie one of the world’s dominant personality development brands tied up with Gera Developments and its Child Centric Homes to ensure effective skill, attitudinal and behavioral training to the children.
While progress is a personal process, the focus of this program was on ensuring that the individual could take charge of their personal development. This focus on the little things sometime matter so much more and not just the bigger picture. ‘Do what you love and love what you do’ was an often stressed upon success mantra and most children were deeply engrossed and in continuous exchange with the trainer in understanding their inner sides and what really got them ticking and what they really liked and loved to do and eventually become.
Speaking on this customer-centric initiative, Mr. Rohit Gera, Managing Director, Gera Developments said, “For us, community building is an important reflection of our philosophy Outdo and with development being a central pillar of ChildCentricTM Homes, we wanted to take our engagement to a higher level and hence, our tie-up with Dale Carnegie and the customized program was aimed at getting the children to be demonstrative of a clear vision of where they would be in the process of outdoing themselves.”
Highlighting the aspects of the program, Shrinivas Prabhu, Training Consultant, Dale Carnegie Training India said, “In today’s fast evolving and competitive environment, young adults and future generations need to stand out in order to be successful. Today’s world and the world tomorrow belongs to those who are able to leverage their strengths. As parents of these young adults, trust & empowerment is the key to navigating our next generation through the journey of realizing their vision for life. For me, working with Gera Developments and their philosophy of Outdo was a unique and fulfilling experience”
During the program titled, “Unleash the Star in You”, these young adults had a surge of adrenaline injected during the weekend gone by completely soaking in the energetic charge that prevailed during each of the sessions. One of the specific desired outcomes was to get the child to break through all barriers of shyness and communicate with complete self-confidence, as fear doesn’t really exist anywhere except in the mind.
The day’s discoveries ended in a crescendo in what is described as a success presentation witnessed by each child’s parents program having the child presenting on large chart paper a Vision Chart, essentially a clear and magnified futuristic perspective of where they see themselves about where they saw themselves. They were able to express their ideas with amazing clarity and conviction about where they saw themselves in 10 years from now.
The children’s clear transformation was supported by their parents. Mr. Rahul Kumar, Resident, Gera’s Emerald City said that, “After this workshop, most of our kids are a lot more self-aware now of who they are and what they want to be”. Sharing his experience, Mr. Sameer Shaikh, Resident, Gera’s GreensVille said, “In the last 3 – 4 years, my kids have been a part of all these programs and they have grown with Gera. We see a lot of value being added to our children. All of this is more than ChildCentric. It is now becoming family-centric homes that you’ll are creating. You’ll are building families and please keep us involved”. Ms. Anuradha Bhosale, Resident, Gera’s GreensVille SkyVillas said “I have been associated with Gera Developments for about 4 years now. Each time they do a program, it surprises you every time. We would never have thought of these for our children. Today’s program is on confidence. The last program was on money. Yes, I want my son to have confidence, I want my son to OUTDO”
