Session with Legrand

Why do women hesitate to speak up? Despite facing challenges and hurdles while navigating personal and professional life stages, women are less vocal. Some are fearful of hurting others’ feelings and others are fearful of being seen as either too emotional or too bossy.

In our recent session with women professionals Legrand we addressed their concerns on Speak up, and how to overcome the self-imposed barriers. It is about time that women start voicing their concerns and choose to challenge the stereotypes attached to voicing their opinions.

Thank you Gauri Desai and Meenal Chaukar for partnering with us for this meaningful journey.

Session with HR Association of India

It is always a pleasure to partner with HR ASSOCIATION OF INDIA for sessions and this time it was on building Emotional resilience. While the pandemic has brought the need for building a resilient workforce to the fore, it is also a fact that one size does not fit all. Every individual is unique, Stress triggers are different, emotional responses vary, and therefore coping mechanisms will be different. We need to move away from a prescriptive approach to an enabling approach where every individual begins to understand their own stress manifestations and methods to deal with them.

Our Founder Sonica Aron spoke about how every individual can take charge of their emotions and feelings, and become more resilient, in a sustainable manner.
