    Time.. it just seems like it flies, especially when the exams are approaching. Managing time is not a skill we are usually taught growing up. Hence developing time management skills is an opportunity to learn how to work more efficiently. It helps you to be less procrastinate and more productive. Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

  • Stress Management

    Stress management

    It seems today’s students experience more stress than in the past. They are getting shuttled from classes to classes..Assignments, home work, surviving back to back exams, tuitions, dance classes, language classes…. stressors are many. The expectations of the parents as if this were not enough. And at the end of the day all they have is an exhausted body and turbulent mind.

    If this kind of stress continues without relief, it can lead to ‘distress’- a negative stress reaction. It is vital to your health to take actions to help manage and /or alleviate this negative stress. Start distressing today.

  • Self Awareness

    “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”- Carl .G. Jung

    Having spent a good share of my life understanding human psyche, I have always felt the significance of self awareness and its relation to development as it is the key to grow as an individual irrespective of your genre.

    It is easy to name different types of essential skills an individual requires to excel in life viz; Effective communication, Interpersonal skills, Emotional skills, Team skills etc. Now imagine a person, who has all these skills or even more, but has not realized that he/she has it!! Then is there any use of having these skills? Will a person like this, be successful in life? Hence, it is high time to make everyone understand that “self-awareness” is, not only about what we notice about ourselves but also, how we notice and monitor our inner world. It is to identify where our strength lies and how we can convert our weaknesses into our strength and thereby succeed in life.

  • Team Skills

    “Teamwork is the secret that make common  people achieve uncommon result”- Ifeany Enoch Onuoha

    Teamwork is more important than ever. Failures in teamwork have caused poor accidents in nuclear power stations, planes to crash and businesses to fail. However, a collection of individuals doesn’t become a team just because it’s a called ‘a team’. There are a whole range of psychological processes that need to be nurtured to form a group that functions well together. Teams are made up of individuals who have different outlooks and abilities, and are at different stages of their careers. Some may find that the tasks allocated to them are challenging, and they may need support. Others may be “old hands” at what they’re doing, and may be looking for opportunities to stretch their skills. Either way, it’s our responsibility to hone our skills.

  • Career Selection through Skill Acquisition for Adolescent

    “Don’t leave a huge decision upto random chance. Learn how to choose the career that’s right for you.”-Unknown

    Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions of our life and it is natural to feel confused or even stressed about it. We are constantly bugged by relatives, parents and friends firing the same question day after day, “What after 10th?” or “What after 12th?” or “What plans after graduation?”, or even the famous “Which stream will you be selecting after 10th?” It is important to understand that choosing a career does not simply mean deciding upon the ultimate career profile which will guide you through the gates of success and fame; rather it means that a person should have the potential to grow with that career and achieve success through his/her decision. Considering the heavy weightage attached to this decision, it becomes rather imperative that deciding on a career option is not something that can be done half heartedly or under the influence of friends and family. It is something that requires thought and planning. In another words, skill sets.

  • Life skills

    “Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it”- Lou Holtz

    Life skills are psychosocial abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. They include creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, the ability to communicate and collaborate, along with personal and social responsibility that contribute to good citizenship – all essential skills for success in the 21st century, both for healthy societies and for successful and employable individuals. Life skills equip students to thrive in the classroom and in the world beyond. Given the rapid rate of change in our world, the ability to adjust and adapt is critical to success. Students needs to learn to quickly analyze what is going on around them and make adjustments on the fly—all the while keeping their goals at the forefront of their minds. Flexibility is not spinelessness. In fact, a spine needs to be flexible to allow the person to move while remaining upright with eyes on the prize.

    Why do we need to teach life skills?

    Every sphere of life is becoming highly competent; it has become inevitable to be a constant good performer irrespective of the field one is in. In order to be so, one has to be informed and responsible citizen, who are willing and able to take responsibility for themselves and their communities and contribute to the political process.

    Democracies depend upon citizens who, among other things, are:

    • aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens
    • informed about social and political issues
    • concerned about the welfare of others
    • able to clearly articulate their opinions and arguments
    • capable of having an influence on the world
    • active in their communities
    • responsible in how they act as citizens.

    These capacities do not develop unaided; they have to be learnt. While certain life skills may be acquired through our everyday experience in the home or at work, they are not sufficient to adequately equip citizens for the active role required of them in today’s complex and diverse society.

    If citizens are to become genuinely involved in public affairs, then a more systematic approach towards citizenship education is essential.

    How does training in life skills benefit young people?

    • It helps them to develop self-confidence and successfully deal with significant life changes and challenges, such as bullying and discrimination.
    • It gives them a voice at school, in their community and in society at large.
    • It enables them to make a positive contribution by developing the expertise and experience they need to assert their rights and understand their responsibilities, while preparing them for the challenges and opportunities of adult and working life.

  • Conflict Management

    “Peace is not the absence of conflict but the ability to cope with it”

    Being a psychologist I meet numerous people on a daily basis with various issues. And from my experience with them there is a common underlying factor for every issue – Conflict.

    Conflict is inevitable and conventional in our everyday life. Everyone experiences some form of conflict, either internal or external. Internal conflict associate with mix of emotions people experience which may lead to misunderstanding to certain subjects and overreacting beyond their point of view. Internal conflict can become a reason for external conflict, thus involving more individuals and affecting the general atmosphere. naturally, the conflict becomes more difficult to settle. These conflicts may include; social conflicts, family conflicts and racisms. Some conflicts begin from little things and form a cycle to further conflicts, as it becomes larger.

    Generally, conflicts pertain to the topic under discussion or rather the real process by which a desired result is obtained. Conflicts can also arise from relational issues. These disputes center on how parties want to be treated by one another. Issues related to ego or identity arise when people communicate in ways that imply face-threats and naturally, they are perceived as blots on the face each of us wants to communicate socially. It is important to note that most disputes involve a combination of these issues.

    Once the conflict issue is identified, the decision of how to respond must be made. Often, steering clear of a conflict is seen as a astute choice yet it is much recommended to resolve the situation as soon as it arises. Accommodating is a way of preserving peace while competing has the opposite effect.

    “CONFLICT: A conflict is a situation when the interests, needs, goals or values of involved parties interfere with one another.”

    Is conflict a bad thing? Not necessarily. Often a conflict is a result of perception. Conflict presents opportunities for improvement. Therefore, it is important to understand (and apply) various conflict resolution techniques. It is a common phenomenon in everyday life, hence it becomes very important to manage it.

    Conflict management is the capacity for Identification and handling of conflicts in a sensible judicious and competent manner. We all have different personal styles to approach conflicts and many at times these styles may not be useful to deal with the particular situation. Conflicts are different in nature; therefore the ways to approach them should also be different. Many at times individuals use one size fits all approach which fails 90% of the time.  This is where we help you identify your style of approaching conflicts and equip you with the best ways to approach different types of conflicts.

  • Work Life Balance & Positive Thinking

    “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”-Unknown

    Work-life balance programs: are they meant as social responsibility to employees or do they provide employers an edge over competitors? Many people think of work-life balance only in the framework of what the company does for the individual. However, work-life balance is a two-prong approach. Many individuals miss the other side of work-life balance, related to what individuals do about themselves. According to Jim Bird, “Work-life balance is meaningful achievement and enjoyment in everyday life.” The primary way companies can help facilitate work-life balance for their employees are through work-life programs and training.
