“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship”

Louisa M Alcott

“If you do what you have always done, you would get as you have always got.” This beautiful quotation by Anthony Robbins (internationally claimed author of “Awaken the Giant Within”), sums up the reason for the Signature Workshops of Chats.

During the last 25 years, he has have observed there is a paradigm shift in the corporate mindset. What was the “in thing” in the last decade is totally obsolete today. An example would clarify this point. When he started in sales career in the 80’s, the mandatory quality which every sales person was made to exhibit and demonstrate was the “gift of the gab”. In fact the mantra was: “If one can talk well, one can sell well.”

Today there is a complete 360 degree shift. From talking the sales person has to exhibit and demonstrate his listening skills. From conventional selling, he has to do consultative selling.

Same is the case with managers and leaders. The requirement today is very different from the ones required even 5 years back. The million dollar question is:

Are we equipped with the latest arsenal to perform consistently amidst constraints and challenges?

Thoughts like these resulted in creating the Signature Workshops. They are:

  • I CAN IF I WILL : Workshop to develop a NEVER SAY DIE attitude
  • KATHA PRAVAHA : Business Communication & Presentation Skills
  • LEADERS@WORK : Creating “Winning” Leaders
  • GOOD TO GREAT : Creating Great Managers
  • ROK SAKO TOH ROK LO : Consultative Selling
  • KHELENGE JEE JAAN SE : Team Bonding
  • HUMOR@WORK : Adding “Zing” to Professional life!!
