The interaction with Galgotias students lasted for two hours where the students spoke about their countries, cultures, courses, likes and dislikes, lifestyles, and had a lot of fun interacting with each other. Students from Galgotias university, Galgotias college of engineering & technology, and Galgotias business school were involved in this activity. It was a very worthwhile activity for students from both the countries. It was difficult for them to say good-bye because they had really hit-it off very well. This only proves that we may be far apart in terms of geography, history, culture, affluence etc. But in our heart of hearts students will remain students - no matter where they come from."

She spoke about the following in her talk to faculty & students of Galgotias Educational Institutions, on 24th January 2012:

Why is management research important?

It's important not just to understand whether there is demand for a product or market potential, but more broadly, in the global context, management and management practices affect our lives and hence need to be studied empirically.

What is the purpose of the book?

The purpose of the book is to deliver research methods and skills training to undergraduates, MBA, PG, & Ph.D students. Equally, the focus of the book is on Quantitative & Qualitative methods, without being biased in favour of either.

What are the differences between business research and consultancy?

Consultancy is limited in scale, biased and restricted to a few key executives. Also, the methodology is hard to duplicate or independently verifiable. Consultancy has a very small theoretical base too.

Dr. Emma Bell also spoke about the dilemma facing management research. If it becomes popular & interesting, it often scores low on rigour, but if it is high on vigour, it's often low on relevance & interest.

Galgotias Business School
Corporate Interface Seminar
21st Sept, 2011

The guest for the day was to be Mr. Prasoon Tripathi, General Manager, HR, Devyani International Limited (DIL). Mr. Tripathi, who started his career as HRM trainee in Uncle Chips in the year 1993. In 18 years, he has grown in his career and reached a very high position in the organization. He was very cheerful with a very exciting personality.

The basic thing on which he stressed was how important it was to preserve our moral values and identity along with growing in our career and polishing our life. It's important not to take life very seriously. As goes the saying "All work and no play makes you dull".

There are two thunderstorms in our day to day life - Disappointment & Frustration. To avoid disappointment, you should be happy with what you have and to get rid of frustration, you have to find time for yourself. What I interpreted was that to live life happily and successfully, you don't need to always work, there should be time for you as well.3

a) MBA is not pure academics but It is a preparation for a career in the Corporate while staying anchored in academics. b) Career choice should be based on interest area plus ability area in the context of job market scenario.

c) Students need to align their aspirations to job market realities. Very often student's aspirations are based on their family financial background as well as the cost of their MBA programme.

The Corporate on the other hand give zero weightage to these factors and only considered the candidates skills, abilities and potential to contribute.

Mr. Pooran Pandey, Director, Times Foundation, was here with us to enlighten with his ideas on the current market scenario and what all the difficulties new managers will face when they enter the market. The session was basically focused at helping us understand the current market requirements of a manager and how to shape ourselves to meet those demands. Attending the session made me realize that it's not only knowledge that is required to be successful.

Apart from knowledge, one has to be apt in skills, smart in his ways and the foremost, be COMPOSED. The best thing about Mr. Pandey, which I mentioned, was his composer. He was so composed throughout the session, did help me realize that composer plays a very major role in shaping one's career successfully as a manager. He also threw some light on the difficulties he faced when he was new in the m...arket. Also at the same time, he did explain to us as to how he overcame those difficulties. What I also interpreted that he was a person with a very high self confidence. According to me, him being so successful is basically because of his composer and his self confidence as well as his aptness while dealing with pressure situations. Indeed, the session was very helpful in opening new thinking doors for us. It will be very helpful for the students if such sessions are often organised as this will help us with organising ourselves for the future,

Corporate Interface Seminar
on"Supply Chain Management "

However by working for past 120 years will full dedication, time management, no strikegathering experience in logistics - Mumbai Dabbawalas have created as place of their own." This way Mumbai Dabbawalas denote themselves.

An interesting and interactive session held at Galgotias Business School taken by Mr. Pawan Agarwal on 15th Dec 2010. He spoke about the organizational structure, working style, and delivery systems of their organization.

While explaining organizational structure he told us that the service is uninterrupted even on the days of extreme weather, such as Mumbai's characteristic monsoons. The local dabbawalas at the receiving and the sending ends are known to the customers personally, so that there is no question of lack of trust. Also, they are well accustomed to the local areas they cater to, which allows them to access any destination with ease. Occasionally, people communicate between home and work by putting messages inside the boxes. However, this was usually before the accessibility of telecommunications. He quoted many examples of husband and wife who resolve their issues with the help of Mumbai Dabbawalas.

Although it was a half an hour speech but galgotians felt that they had learnt the art of success. Utmost dependence on Human Capital, Honesty and Integrity, Discipline and Time Management, Pride towards work, Recruitment policies and manpower management, Complete Contentment were some of those lessons.

Corporate Interface Seminar
on Right to information act (11th Dec 2010)

Can you imagine a generation which...
... does not get corrupt or violent whatever the situation may be...
... always opts for humane choices in every aspect of life...
... has the passion and skills to solve gravest challenges of our time successfully and joyfully??

The answer is yes!
A generation which is able to identify and understand its relationship with nation, society and nature will grow up to be such. Imagine the peaceful and equitable world such a generation would create!

A workshop was organized at Galgotias Business School by Mr. Manish Sishodia, an NGO, School of Relationship on 11th Dec 2010 for students to orient them on Right to Information. This is one right which has allowed every citizen to question every public office and every public funded office. The right, a result of public movement itself, has been with the citizens since from 13 October 2005. And in such short span of time it has helped unearth corruption and increase transparency in our systems.

Students were greatly inspired when they heard story of a daily wages labourer, Nannu, obtain his ration card through this Act. This got them enthused and a session of question answer followed explaining the nitty-gritty of the Act. But in the same breath Students were also told that in the last year, 8 RTI activists have died just because to avail the facility of RTI Act. Cynicism and scepticism rushed into the hall!

The workshop thus then moved in the direction of discussing systems against corruption, the CBI, the CVC, and the Vigilance Commissions of each department. and institutional weakness inherent in each was listed.

But it was highlighted that the reason why systems are failing? Who are these people? Are they very different from you and me?Mr. Manish Sishodia answered that a section of people deliberately wants systems to fail. It is observed in our nation that nature of corruption is mainly opportunist. Whoever has an option to become corrupt does become so in 90 % cases. The psyche which prompts us to become corrupt is that wants are infinite and thus one has to constantly struggle to meet them. By the time one is accomplished, another crops up. Hence no amount of money is enough! Can this belief be cracked in the hedonistic and materialistic world we live in through changes in our education system?

At the end of the session, Prof. Pradeep kulshrestha rendered the vote of thanks.

30th JUNE 2009

Mr. K. K. Sinha, Group HR Jindal Power Ltd., Dr. Renu Luthra, Director GBS, distinguished guests, faculty members, parents and my dear students.

On behalf of Galgotias Business School, it is my privilege to extend a warm welcome to you on the occasion of the third orientation programme of GBS. I am thankful to Mr. K. K Sinha for having spared his valuable time to be with us today. Mr. Sinha is a luminary with a wide range of rich assignments in his career spanning over 3 decades with blue chip companies like NTPC, Reliance energy and reliane Infocomm.

We have come a long way since 1999 when we started our institution from a rented accommodation with 40 students. However, - our vision even then was clear: - To build a world class institution.

No effort was spared to put together faculty, a world class infrastructure and create a conducive atmosphere to bring about the best from our faculty to students.

This effort continues till today and it is the outcome of this mindset that the results of our institutions are among the best and we are ranked among the top institutions of India by surveys of leading magazines like Dataquest, Outlook, India Today and , many others over the years.

Today, with over 5000 students our commitment and efforts continue to strive for greater excellence - for excellence is a never ending process. We are committed to educating our students - to be competitive not only in Indian firms but in all firms around the world. We are not only striving to compete with the Business Schools of India but also with the top business schools of the world.

Dear students, this day is about you. You have to come to this college leaving the comfort of your homes (or in some cases discomfort) to become something in your life. I am sure you are excited. There are few days in human life when one is truly elated. The first day in college is one of them.

Dear students, the key to success and all round personality lies in having the following attributes: -

- Being happy
- Having a positive attitude
- Being sincere in whatever you do
- Being fearless
- Not to fear failure. Failure always comes with a silver lining. Failure is extremely difficult to handle, but those that do, come out stronger. What did this failure teach you? Is the question you should ask?

And most important - your value system inherent in out great Indian Culture. Without respecting your elders and obtaining their blessings don't expect success or happiness to come your way.

Most of us are from Middle class families. To us, having material landmarks is success and rightly so. When you have grown up where money constraints force everyday choices, financial freedom is a big achievement. But it isn't the purpose of life. If that was the case, Mr. Ambani would not show up for work. Shah Rukh Khan would stay at home and not dance anymore.

Why do they do it? what makes them come to work everyday? They do it because it makes them happy. They do it because it makes them feel alive. Just getting better from current levels feels good. If you study hard, you can improve your rank.

If you make an effort to interact with people, you will do better in interviews. If you practice, your cricket will get better. You may also know that you cannot become Tendulkar, yet. But you can get to the next level. Striving for that next level is important.

Set goals to give you balanced, successful life. I use the word balance before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.

There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your break-up. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.

Life is one of those races in nursery school, where you have to run with a marble in a spoon-kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same with life, where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but the feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.

Lastly, don't take life too seriously. Don't be serious-be sincere. We are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. Do we really need to get so worked up?

Its OK, bunk a few classes, fall in love, we are people, not programmed devices. Frustration is a sign that, somewhere, you took it too seriously.

I welcome you again to the most wonderful years of your life. If someone gave me the choice to go back in time. I will surely choose college. But I also hope that ten years later as well, your eyes will shine the same way they do today.

Thank you and God bless

Director Prof. (Dr.) Renu Luthra's ADDRESS

Our chief guest Mr. K.K. Sinha, Director group HR Jindal Steel and Power, Shri Suneel Galgotia, Chairman Galgotias Educational Institutions, Mr. V.K. Luthra Director CRC, distinguished guests, parents and faculty colleagues and my dear students - a very good morning to you. It is a pleasure to welcome you to the third orientation programme of GBS.

Two years is a short period in the life of any organization. Yet we have been able to make a difference and have been able to win the respect of our stakeholders. This is due to our refusal to compromise standards, and commitment to quality in everything be it infrastructure, teaching pedagogy, training activities. Our strong corporate interface has gained for us the appreciation of corporate professionals also.

Fast placed, fun filled and intellectually stimulating would the terms that would best describe the culture at GBS. At our institute we have firm beliefs faith regarding the unlimited power of the human intellect and so we encourage, motivate and push at every level for be it students, faculty and support staff to stretch themselves to achieves goals and meet deadlines.

The spirit of the institute can only be captured in the following words "It has to be done"

As I was deciding what to talk to you today, I decided not to talk about the teaching, the library, the corporate interface, the seminars etc. Orientation on all these will be done very aptly by yours seniors and I am sure they are looking forward to explaining these things to you.

I would like to share with you some choices that will help you to live a happy and satisfying life in years to come.

The first choice is will you act or will you be acted upon? Surely some of you will say it's a ridiculous question. Of course we will be acted upon. We will in control, but you will happily hand over every evening or free time to the TV, friends and allow any passing fancy to hijack your time or attention.

To act rather than being acted upon implies identifying your goal or staying focused. I would like to share with you a personal experience. I was about eight years old and my father was explaining the properties of a magnifying glass to me. He told me that if I spread a newspaper in the sun and held the magnifying glass over it, the newspaper would catch fire. I did exactly that and began moving the magnifying glass in all directions over the newspaper. Nothing happened and no flame appeared. I was utterly disappointed. My father then held my hand with the magnifying glass only at one spot in the newspaper for a little while and sure enough a flame appeared. The lesson - be focused and persistent if you want to achieve something.

However to identifying your goal is also about getting your priorities right.

Xerox the manufactures of photocopier had a huge market for their machines. But their photocopiers had some manufacturing defects due to which they required frequent servicing. The service department of Xerox was doing roaring business. Faced with a choice to improve the quality of the product or to strengthen the after sales service department the company choose the latter rather than spending resources on research and development and quality improvements. The Japanese detected the flaws, came out with improved machines of the 'Canon' brand and took away large chunks of the market share. Xerox went wrong because they were serving themselves rather than the interests of their customers. Get your priorities right in not only what to do but for whom to do it.

The second choice is what the end purpose you have in mind is. It is not important to be just busy; you need to be busy doing something worthwhile. Identify what difference you would like to make and pursue it. Mother Teresa once remarked "What we are doing would be a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."

The third choice is the choice of values or guiding principles. If you want lasting happiness, we need to live in harmony with timeless, universal principles and values.

One foggy night a captain saw the dim lights of another ship. He signaled "change your course 100 north

The reply came back - "you change your course 100 south".

"I am a captain of a battleship - you change your course 100 north" replied the captain

The reply came back "I am an ordinary seaman but I am in charge of the lighthouse captain - you change your course 100 south".

The lighthouse is that immovable and universal principle with the help of which you can find direction in times good and not so good.

You young citizens of India are entrusted with a major responsibility - you are amongst the fortunate few who have access to higher education and comforts. You need to give back to society and the nation which has given you so much.

Today take a silent vow that you will make to a difference to the organization you get employed.

Lee Iaccocca was once asked, - "You are a roaring success. How did you do it?" Lee Iaccocca replied "my parents told me to get all the education I could, but then by God! Do something. Don't just stand there, make something happen."

If you want to leave your footprints on the sands of time then don't drag your feet.

I wish you all the best for a happy stay with us.
God Bless You
Thank You


Corporate Interface Seminar Series
Talk by: Mr Rudra, Chief Finance Officer, DLF on 2nd July, 2009

The CRC at GBS every year organizes the Corporate Interface Seminar Series to expose the students towards the practical ground realities of the market. The Economics & Finance Club under the guidance of Mr. Luthra organized an interactive session with Mr. Rudra, the Chief Finance Officer, DLF on 2nd July, 2009. No matter what career one pursues, being finance savvy is critical to success. Mr. Rudra gave the students the insights on all aspects of international capital markets including venture capital, merchant banking, sales and trading, portfolio management, corporate treasury, accounting and commercial banking.

The interaction with him introduced the students to elementary concepts of corporate finance using a more systematic approach than is generally found in the textbooks. Focusing about the breakdown and its impact in finance, he said that with India's fundamental conservatism in the world economy has saved the country from the direct jolt.

The students were keen on knowing the difference between their potential career growth in the corporate as compared to the CA students; for which Mr. Rudra commented that there is no such difference between CA and PGDM Finance students because the former do have the hands on experience on the foundational grounds of business and PGDM Finance students do have the advantage of strategic side of business. He insisted that the students should focus on two important aspects i.e. the ability to translate the learning into business; and secondly, to fit in the organization with a vision to learn and grow as an individual.

Mr. Rudra also put forward his views regarding job opportunities that there is a need for MIS Graduates at entry level in Finance sector wherein the students with high enthusiasm, commitment, dedication, energy and commitment level is required. He quoted from Stephen Covey's, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People; that there is a circle of influence and the circle of concern, and it is futile to focus on set of concern, rather we should always focus on the circle of influence.

Director CRC, Mr. V.K. Luthra thanked Mr Rudra and said that the event was an excellent window opener to the corporate for the Ist Year PGDM students whose focus should be towards the goal; and for the final year students the discussion was very successful in giving them the insight into the functional aspect of strategic finance.

Galgotias Business School, Greater Noida very firmly believes that managers of the future need to be analytical and working both strategically and operationally, across national and cultural boundaries. To inculcate this into practice, the Corporate Resource Centre at GBS headed by Mr. V.K. Luthra has been fortunate enough to bring in the corporate leaders in the campus.


Corporate Interface Seminar Series
Talk by: Mr Shantanu Dhar, Executive Director HR, Dalmia Cements on 4th July, 2009

GBS believes that it is our responsibility to develop our students as managers right on the campus while they are still students. The Institute considers the students as active partners in managing the Institute in its activities such as conferences, training programs, guest lectures, seminars, etc., and ensures that they play an active role in the life of the Institute rather than remain passive recipients.

Corporate Interface Seminar Series, a major activity of CRC wherein the practicing managers are invited twice a week for an interactive session with the students on a variety of sectors, invited Mr Shantanu Dhar, Executive Director HR, Dalmia Cements to share his experiences with the students. An open brainstorming session was organized to tune the students accordingly. Mr. Dhar shared his experience; discussed real life case-lets, shared growth and slump situations and his personal leadership story which helped the budding managers to gain a realistic outlook about leadership and management.

The youngster, who nurtures leadership traits, grows fast in corporate ladder and the important aspect becomes the conversation. Mr. Dhar, very rightly discussed about the importance of powerful conversation in the organization and taking a stand for each other. He told that to become corporate worthy, knowing Excel in computers becomes very important. He showed the true picture of the corporate by telling that nobody in the corporate is indispensable, and that the only thing which counts is giving value to the company. Mr. V. K. Luthra, Director CRC pointed out in this context that "one should contribute 5 times of their earnings to the organization, in order to survive".

Mr. Dhar also threw some light about the myths of HR. He said there is no place for gender bias and that the percentage of interaction with the other employees with HR is quite low. The HR role is about creating development strategy for the organization with the help of other people in the organization. He also said that the black side of HR is about firing people and becoming tough. The students asked him "whether HR is for people or for Management". He said it is the biggest myth and the truth is that "HR is for the management". Telling about the career prospects, he said that there will not be any recruitment in next three years and that only middle level and higher level recruitments would take place. He said the employment opportunities in India would be in sectors like cement, steel, power, coal, telecom and the like. This market-driven strategy gave an unparallel advantage to the students.

Mr. Luthra thanked Mr. Dhar and said this interactive session with the students would help them to draw a perspective in their life. He also said that with the changing trends in the corporate we should have a reality check that instead of asking, "what the company can do for us, we should ask ourselves, what we can do for the company."


Corporate Interface Seminar Series
Seminar on:- Structured Preparation for Corporate Readiness
Talk by: Mr R Anand, Director HR HCL Technologies, on 7th July, 2009

Mr. R.Anand Director HR HCL Technologies visited our campus on 7th July 2009 for a session with the students on "Corporate Readiness". The focus was primarily on the IT sector for Management Graduates.

He started his discussion by telling students about the talents which each individual possesses. He said that before going in for a job one should do the R&D about the organization and also find out the capabilities of oneself as what one can do for the organization; what impact the work might create in the company; who all are the significant others in the organization and moreover why the organization has given them employment. This will help us in knowing the mandate and the cycles of the job profile.

He said that when a student turns into a professional the change occurs. The students from the protected environment enter the corporate world. In this transition period one should face the realities and understand that work is a marathon and not a sprint. He also put forward his views about the hard side of the working environment that bosses at work are not the college professors and so professionalism at every step would matter a lot. He told the students that team work in organization is very important as work groups are heterogeneous. It is also necessary to understand that whatever we produce in the organization is not the output rather it is WIP. In corporate world it is essential to guess everyday how wide and how deep to go. We need to plan our day's work and truly justify the package that we are worth of. He gave a very important tip to the students that "nothing is out of syllabus", it is just how well you put them into practice.

Mr. Luthra, Director CRC, thanked Mr. Anand and said that this discussion would definitely help youngsters to gain a realistic outlook about the corporate world. Through these kinds of interactions with industries the students get the industry relevant guidance about multiple organizations. Thus, when students apply their learning in the organisation, it becomes easy for them to design a plan according to the best practices they have learned in the B-School.


Corporate Interface Seminar Series
Seminar on:-Career options for non CA Management Graduates
Talk by: Mr Rajeev K. Dalmia, Chief Finance Officer Dish TV, on 8th July, 2009

The consecutive 4th session beginning July under the Corporate Interface Seminar Series of CRC, Mr. Rajeev K. Dalmia, Chief Finance Officer, Dish TV on a very short notice visited GBS on 8th July 2009 to put light upon Career options in Finance for non CA MBA's and also to focus upon the fundamental clarity regarding their future in the corporate.

Talking about the opportunities in media, he said that avenues for MBA's in media is not much, and that students at the entry level should not be choosy about the jobs. One should try to inculcate the regular reading habit to enhance their knowledge and analytical skill. He also focused upon reading the newspaper as it gives us the news as well as the views. He inspired the students to go through the editorials everyday. He said that the recruitment depends upon 4 important things, i.e. look; outlook; indispensability; and replacement. The look and outlook is the controllable part of the individual, in which one can continuously improve upon through the experiences.

The basic difference between the CA's and MBA's he said lies in the course curriculum and teaching methodology. The company's define the performance criteria for the CA's as and when they are recruited; but it is not so with MBA pass outs. In general Mr. Dalmia said that there are 2 schools of thought which exist in the market; the company's like ITC, HCL, Microsoft are the ones which take the fresher's and likes to mould their vision and philosophy as per the requirement of the organization. On the other hand there are about 99% of companies who at this time are looking in for experienced personnels. He emphasized that there are 3 stages of education, i.e.; we learn; re-learn; and un-learn. The un learning plays the most important role in our life and it teaches us about the practicality of the applications.

He insisted upon the enhancement of knowledge, skill and talent which would ultimately take the aspirants to their respective goals. Regarding the job specification in stock market, he said it is highly analytical and research based. He said that for non CA MBA's the career opportunities in strategic finance or corporate finance dealing with break even points, ratio analysis, balance sheets, cross-border financing, new -age financing is quite upcoming. He also pointed out that MBA students do have the capacity for out of the box thinking which is immediately visible and catchy and has a significant requirement in the market.

Mr. V. K. Luthra, Director CRC thanked Mr. Dalmia and said that the aspects of modern day finance are different and that these excellent platforms in which the students share their academic knowledge with industries help them to know the corporate in reality better.


Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)
& Galgotias Business School
Smooth Transition from Classroom to Workplace

CII joined hands with Galgotias Business School and together they took up the challenges faced by students when transitioning from the classroom to the workplace. On 21st July 2009, the CII and the Galgotias Business School organized a seminar on the topic "Smooth Transition from Classroom to Workplace" giving valuable clues about how to help new graduates navigate between cultures with a minimum of anxiety, so that they would be able to contribute effectively at the workplace.

The programme started with the welcome address by the Director, Prof. Dr. Renu Luthra, in which she clearly stated that everyone experiences a sharp leaning curve, culture shock, and a gamut of emotional ups and downs. Students are often very focused on studying and grades, and as a result they do not think much about what it takes to be successful in the workplace. They are unaware of the fact that training and expertise are only part of the puzzle. The actual work life depends on personal and people skills and on the ability to communicate, network and collaborate with people. She said that it is critical to have passion for one's work. The student will need to develop the ability to align organizational goals with personal goals. He /she will have to develop a sensitivity towards workplace mission, vision, values, policies, procedures and priorities.

The Ist Session on "Corporate Expectations in a Tough Economy" was taken by Mr. Hari Nair, Vice Chairman HR & IR Sub Committee & Vice President, Sona Koyo Steering Systems Ltd. He spoke on Expectation Mapping and Gap Identification. He said that consistency and commitment are the two tools on which the career in the corporate depends. He also focused upon the USP of the individual and asked the students to explore their strong areas, because nowadays, the industry is hiring people with multiple talents. He gave the example of Mr. Siddique who is the Head of HR, IT and Finance at Maruti. He said that the time has come to think out of the box and that people are now working on monthly targets.

Ms. Navdeep Kaur, Director CII from Chandigarh was also present in the discussion.

The 2nd Session on "Ready to Face the Board" was taken by Prof. Renu Sharma, Director, Integrated Customer Solutions. She stated that successful interviewing begins with preparation.

She focused upon the etiquettes like that of dress and physical appearances. Passion and attitude play a major role in the selecting process she observed.

Prof. Kamaljit Sodhi, Chairperson PGDM thanked CII and the guests and said that the students of GBS are fortunate to get the opportunities like this to interact with the corporates' so often and that they should utilize the experiences shared by the speakers.

He mentioned various points related to the working environment in a classroom and in office. He further added that that the life at both classroom and at workplace is very tough. There is a similarity between lives at both places, for e.g students have to work hard at both places to attain their goals and objectives. He mentioned the workplace is similar to the classroom where students are daily encouraged to innovate and acquire knowledge about a wide range of diverse issues. He interacted with the students and compared college life with life in the corporate and told them that in the business school, time-tables and a fixed schedules are the norms, but at the workplace, each and every moment would become a lesson and every other day we would be like an unscheduled examination .

He also mentioned that future plays a very vital role. He categorized future as: Future is EMOTION; Future is ETHICS and Future is PASSION; which means we don't have to be emotionally attached with the work which we are going to perform in future, and that when we are working in an organization, we must keep our personal ethics aside and go with the organizational moral values and ethics, and at that it is critical to be passionate about work. Blessed with a wonderful sense of humour, Mr Nair held the students spellbound with his interactive session.

Mr. Singh said that as the globalization is at the peak, one should move ahead with the following traits: Walk the Talk; Am I transparent?; Balanced outlook; Good Human Being; Networking; Empathy; Passion for work; Servant Leadership; Followership, and the like. He said that one cannot move ahead in life without having the leadership traits and these traits help in creating a positive environment in an organization because these days the best approach of leadership is Situational Leadership which develops a kind of trust in the organisation. He said that the leadership traits like directing, coaching, supporting, delegating are very common and is applied almost in every other organisation. Effective leaders are versatile in being able to move around the grid according to the situation, so there is no one right style. However, we tend to have a preferred style, and in applying Situational Leadership you need to know which one that is for you.

He concluded his session by telling that by adopting the right style to suit the follower's development level, work gets done, relationships are built up, and most importantly, the follower's development level will rise to everyone's benefit. He said that it has proved popular with managers over the years because it passes the two basic tests of such models: it's simple to understand, and it works in most environments for most people. The model doesn't just apply to people in leadership or management positions: we all lead others at work and at home.

Mr. Ankur Mahajan, the College President thanked Mr. Rajneesh Singh, for his valuable inputs on the leadership dimensions and said that the session would definitely help the students to analyse the needs of the situation they would be dealing with in near future, and then adopt the most appropriate leadership style.
