Campus to Corporate Workshop for Students : Introduction

Its not just academic inputs which goes in making a student successful in life. There are various others aspects of his personality which helps him in achieving what he aspires and desires. If correct guidance and inputs are given at the right time and the students are groomed properly they can easily grab good opportunities early and become successful in their chosen career. Most students have the potential, but lack of right guidance, motivation, mentoring and training makes it difficult for them to reach where they would have otherwise reached easily and early. The inputs which may be required are often in the attitudinal and behavioral areas.

Often it has been found that schools and colleges stress more on developing the academic skills of students and in this process, some very critical behavioural and attitudinal issues are  ignored. It has been proved through research that it is not just your knowledge that helps you achieve success in life, but it’s your attitude. It is often said that your attitude determines your altitude.

Our student workshops, and campus to corporate training aims at working on student’s attitude and behaviour and helps them build the right attitude required. This student training derives its major strength from the researches in the field of psychology. The various applied concepts are chosen to be presented to the students. This student’s workshop seeks to resolve many of the personal, interpersonal & adjustment issues of the students by providing them with practical and simple action-steps to implementation in their daily lives. One of the major impacts of this student’s workshop is that they  gain enough confidence to work with different people in teams and get over their inhibitions. The impact is immediate and the change in them is visible and permanent.

Why Campus to Corporate training?

This term defines the phases of transition of a student from secure, comfortable and non-threatening life of a student to an extremely demanding, competitive and stressed life of a corporate job. This is often a sudden change as many students are directly pickup from campuses and made to wear the working gear almost immediately. They hardly get time to think, plan or strategize. They may also be sent to locations unknown to them and their families, they may have to adjust with strangers of all age groups. So it is like life throwing all possible challenges to them in one go. Moreover, in spite of all these difficulties they may face, they are expected to perform, excel and give their best. Now it is not too difficult to understand what these young guys may go through. Similar things happen in the arms forces training camps. No wonder we hear many recruits attempting to runaway and go back to their comfortable lives during first few weeks itself. This phase in extremely crucial in any young boy or girl’s lives. If they stay and somehow adjust they survive but if they can’t cope up they not only damage their careers but also end up shattering their confidence and self esteem.

This brings us to the reason behind this campus to corporate programme. By this student’s training, we try our best to prepare them mentally and help them with a better understanding of what may be coming ahead. We show them the real picture and prepare them well enough to be able to face the challenges of the job better. We share with them our corporate experiences and appraise them with the expectations and demands of strenuous corporate life. We equip them with the right knowledge, skills and attitude, so that they are ready to face the demands and excel in them.

Why Soft Skills Training for Students?

IQ is responsible for high technical competence in an individual. It means he may acquire good qualifications, excel in training and will be able to understand and learn the concepts better. Whereas EQ, which is also known as social intelligence, is needed for good interpersonal competence and man management skills.  Students require it to adjust with others, make friends and build good relations with those around them. Technical competencies are primary for a trainee, but as he move up in career, and forms his team and has people reporting to him, his technical competencies become secondary and interpersonal relationship skills and man-management skills become primary.

A successful manager is one who is able to deal with his people in a way which boosts their morale. His communication skills much be encouraging and motivating enough for him to win the loyalty and support of his subordinates. He should be a good team player and must be able to guide his team to success. For this it is said that he must have a high EQ. EQ (Emotional Intelligence) which is also known as social intelligence is needed for good interpersonal competence and man management skills.  Technical competencies are primary for a trainee, but as he move up in career, and forms his team and has people reporting to him, his technical competencies become secondary and interpersonal relationship skills and man-management skills become primary.

Most of the attitudinal training and behavioral training sessions, try hard to build these very skills among the participants. As per a study on soft skills, the single most important soft skill for a job candidate to possess was interpersonal skills. It was followed by communication skills-written & verbal and then the ability to work under pressure.

Can we think of a team player or a team leader without good interpersonal skills? In this competitive world, key to survival is in your ability to manage people, motivate people, winning their support and getting things done. This is possible by learning team working and leaderships skills. For which we need to start with the basics of learning interpersonal relationships skills. Finally , developing soft skills is about gaining a better understanding of the way people think and behave and presenting yourself and your ideas in a way that will have the best impact.
