FLASHBACK 2014

Dear Friends,

On the auspicious occasion of KALPATARU UTSAB of SRI RAMAKRISHNA PARAMHAMSA on the 1st January, I pray to Thakur, that He may fulfil all our wishes and dreams in 2015!!

I have pleasure in sharing a FLASHBACK of 2014 – my Training journey in the year just gone by.

In case I have been even a bit SUCCESSFUL in 2014, it is only because of U (YOU) –

  • My Consultants who have reposed their faith and trust in me in giving me training assignments.
  • My Corporate friends who have helped & supported me in fine tuning the content to make it relevant for their vertical.
  • My fellow trainers who have always being by my side with their encouragement and support.  Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Capt. Charanjit deserve special mention.
  • All my participants, who were the base of all my workshops. I appreciate their participation, their constructive critique which helped me to improve myself along the learning journey.
  • You, my TWTO extended family, who have always encouraged and prodded me with your positive mails. Do keep them flowing….
  • My best half – Srabani  my daughter Agniva (Dimpi), who were behind me as rock solid support who took care of my Alzheimers affected Papa when I was on training assignments and tours. Without their support this journey would not even have begun, let alone be successful. I can never repay their debt.
  • Finally God Almighty who continuously showered His blessings on me and helped me create a niche for myself.

Some Watershed moments of 2014:

  • I had the privilege and honour to facilitate a 2      day’s workshop on Communication      Skills for a Navratna PSU –      IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Ltd) on 29th – 30th      May. The workshop was very well received a got a positive feedback.
  • I co facilitated 15 sessions on Behavioural Approach To Safety      along with Indrajyoti Sengupta of Sangsaptak  for the Blue Collared workers of a MNC. The      project started on 6th June and ended on 24th July.      298 participants were covered in the project. The interesting part was the      entire workshop was done in Bengali.
  • Was in a team of facilitators which did 3 batches      of Competency Assessment Centre      for a building & construction vertical. This was my first such centre      as a freelance trainer. Was a great learning experience. I would like to      thank Sanjay Roychoudhury of Gray Matters for involving me.
  • It was an honour to be invited by the Alzheimer’s      Society of India – Kolkata chapter to give a talk about Caring for Alzheimer’s Patient on      the 6th September to about 30 care givers. It was a humbling      experience to hear the trial, tribulations and success of the stories      shared by the care givers.  Would      like to thank Nilanjana Maulik, Secretary of the Society for inviting me.      I had named the presentation A B C      – Always Be Caring!!

 

Feedback by the participants:

Out of the 59 workshops I facilitated, majority of the feedback was around 95% +. There was one feedback of a session on Communication Skills for an ITeS were the feedback was much below average. The reason was the participants did not understand the content. It was a learning experience for me.

On the Personal Front:

It has been my privilege, along with the support of my wife Srabani and daughter Agniva to take care of my 86+ years old Alzheimers affected Papa  for over 2 years now (since 1st December 2012). Apart from the 23 days (26th Sept – 19th Oct 2014) when he was admitted in Woodlands Hospital after his accidental fall, we have been able to take good care of him. We have been very well assisted by two Ayahs who look after him on a 12 hours shift. As you are aware, Alzheimers is incurable, as of now, and care is the only medication. Since he is in an advanced stage of the disease, he has severe mood swings and temper tantrums. It is very soul breaking to see Papa, whom we have always seen to be extremely active to turn almost like a vegetable now. Many times he does not recognize any one of us. God has given us the strength and hope He continues to share His blessings on us, so we can take care of Papa in his last stage of his life. Do keep us in your prayers.

Final Words:

2014 has been a good year for me from the Training point of view. I am extremely thankful for your support and patronage. Looking forward to the same support in 2015.

Wishing each one of you A VERY HAPPY, PEACEFUL, PROSPEROUS AND CONTENTED NEW YEAR 2015!!!
