Session with Nykaa

Today’s times require intentional and mindful Emotional resilience, and with simple techniques and practice we can make all learn this life skill. Recognising our own stress triggers and how they manifest for us, knowing what our coping mechanisms are make us more #resilient and #strong. How do we navigate the axis of emotions and understanding our cognitive errors patterns makes us more mindful of our thoughts which in turn makes us able to channelise our emotions constructively. In our third interaction with employees of Nykaa, we spoke about what it takes to be in the boat to sail through #turbulent times with #resilience and #mindfulness. Thank you Nilesh Sawant and the entire team of Nykaa for making it happen and letting us all understand what it takes to build emotional resilience mindfully.

Session with Abbott

When confronted with challenges in life and while going through turbulent times, allies are the people who help us in overcoming the hurdles. Allies are always there to support and help others in their times of need. They not only support but also speak up and take action against discrimination or inappropriate behavior. And when you have allies at workplace, it builds a culture of inclusivity and enables employees to perform and grow. Our session with the team of Abbott India was all about Allies in the Workplace and how we overcome barriers at different lifestages with their support and help. Thank you Jyoti BhattTamanna TripathyTr Prasad and Shruti Pai for partnering with us giving us this opportunity to interact with allies of Abbott.
