Introspect yourselves and if you cannot find a way out then you are welcome to consult me to coach, train, mentor and excel.

  • Visual Learners, Auditory Learner, Kinesthetic Learner, Reading & Writing Learner, Environmental Learner, etc., etc. but all these are good for writing books, PPTs and teaching theories but in real world there are only two main types of learners.

    1. Good Learners and
    2. Bad Learners

    However, its up to the teacher, facilitator, trainer to turn good learners into brilliant learners and bad learners into good learners. Most teacher, facilitator, trainer fail to understand that it is not what he or she wants to talk the learners must listen with interest and absorb but he/ she has to say what the learners want to hear and expect and those who are exceptional teacher, facilitator, trainer are capable in improvising the teaching to present in such interesting, narrative, real-life and connectable story based manner with the help of active learning method, making the students work and apply based on the theories taught are successful in imparting hands on and application oriented knowledge and finally producing highly motivated, dynamic and pragmatic employable youth.

    98% faculty members in all levels of education India fail to ignite the spark in the students because of the absence of the above mentioned skills as they were born, brought up and taught to be conventional and not to think out of the box.

    99% institutions in India fail to encourage out of box thinking and exceptional talents being scared about change which is against India's traditional culture. That is why in many MBA institutions the boys and girls sit far from each other in different groups, institution always mention 'separate hostels for boys and girls' in their prospectus although have no control on the mixing of boys and girls in and outside campus.
