India is changing in every direction. Economic changes with globalisation and the increase in foreign direct investment is creating rapid cultural changes in rural and urban environments as well as among social networks and families. In addition, technological advancements and its dissemination to different facets of Indian society have resulted in a business environment which sees constant disruptions in its systems and processes. A key aspect of The NorthCap University’s mission is to explore the science behind communications in this new environment and to enable effective leadership in an era of technological and digital disruption in business.
Aman Batra, student (Bachelor’s in Engineering, The NorthCap University) said, “The workshop talked about extremely pertinent issues like organisational politics and how it can be dealt with effectively. How important is to motivate your team as a leader and how exactly to channelise the energy of each and every employee in the best possible way. The workshop also talked about effective communication-the 3 very integral components of communication – synthesise, structure, and simplify. The fun activities conducted as a part of the workshop greatly added to the learning quote from speakers”.Posted in Campus
