Taking this point further, he explains that people who only had focus on academics are now restricted in terms of earnings. The corporate today requires a team player, an all-rounder and a person who carries himself well which is evident by the fact that we see this today in all the top people in various companies. The effectiveness of a leader depends on his attitude. The root of personality is the way in which a person develops his value and belief system and the way he looks at himself. Therefore, the most important aspect of a good personality is self-image, if it is negative it is because a person is negative from within and similarly for a positive self-image. It is important to understand value and love yourself which keeps growing your confidence. He concluded by giving the key traits of a leader which are a) How comfortable you are using power. b) Decision making ability. c) Initiative and Drive. d) How a person carries himself. e) Self Confidence. f) Integrated person: What you think, you feel, what you feel, you do. Hence, it is important to develop one’s personality

    Theme : Technology Driven Learning Eco-systems

    In this session, students have explored the fundamental shift from training to learning.

This lecture made them understand that a learning ecosystem is not an event-based model; but it is a dynamic, ever-changing environment where learning and performance happen in the workflow rather than just in a classroom. Organizations and individual trainers that have used classroom-based training as the primary source of learning and performance must adapt to the new model of Learning Management System.They must now have gained clarity of thought on the role of HR and should have understood that the innovation springs from the minds of creative individuals working in an environment that spawns and encourages innovation

    I am or doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. – Benjamin Franklin We do not save lives. We do not make someone’s life better. We do not even provide food, shelter or education to the underprivileged. All we do is share some happy moments with them, make one day brighter or a kid, try to aid them and try to show them the right direction. Pranay is an attempt, an attempt to do some good, an attempt to be the humans that we were meant to be. PRANAY is a first of its kind social initiative to be launched by a B-School. We organise Go Green drives, walks to promote awareness about Cancer, Blood donation and Medical check-up camps and many more such events. We also work closely with NGOs like Maher, QMTI, Connecting, Yoddhas, Akanksha to name a few. This not only is a constant reminder of the adversities that one can face in life it also instils in us the strength to sail through tough times.

    'Oh God, teach us how to laugh; but let us not forget that we had alsocried once upon a time' -Mai

    The Pranay Team is glad to share its experience of the event- “Chetana” conducted on 5 th February 2017 at Sanmati Bal Niketan Ashram- Home for the Orphans. The Orphanage was started by Sindhutai Sapkal (lovingly called as Mai- Mother of Orphans). She is a renowned Indian Social Activist who raised her voice against many social issues. She has struggled and faced many hardships to bring justice for women and the poor. She has founded many organizations, received a total of 750 awards till date and currently caters to 1042 adopted children in her orphanages at different locations in Maharashtra. We were welcomed at the Ashram located in Manjari (Budruk) and one of the volunteers took us for the tour of the home which hosted around 25 boys who are pursuing their education by either studying in a school or college. The children are well looked after, provided with nutritious meals four times a day, mentored to study and pursue a career. We were informed that the Ashram supports them till they get a job and further assists in their marriage as well. The Pranay Team interacted with the kids and gifted a set of Tabla to them to play it on their cultural events and festivals. The children were overwhelmed on receiving the gift. Mai is truly an inspirational figure; she has devoted her entire life to raising orphans. Unfortunately, we couldn’t meet her but the co-ordinators at the Ashram were so delighted to have us that they gifted us a novel “Aamchi Mai” written by D.B. Mahajan and a CD“Anathanchi Yashodha” directed by Paresh Bhosale which depicts the Life of Mai. Team Pranay cherishes this visit and hopes to tread on this path of selflessness. This event would not have been possible without the support of Director, Dr Brig. Rajiv Divekar (Retd.), our faculty - in - charge Prof. Dr Pradnya Chitrao and the SIMS family.

    Sustainability is the process of using resources in the present while taking into consideration the future generation’s requirements. In this age of consumerism, where little thought is given to what we buy and what we use, there is a need to practice more environmentally conscious ways and methods. SIMS, Pune has come up with its own ‘Green Club’- The Sustainability Club to roll out initiatives to make the campus more eco-friendly. With the club, the institute plans to take measures to address issues related to energy and water conservation, waste management etc.

    The vision of the club is: To inculcate the sense of sustainable development among the student managers by creating an atmosphere of awareness about energy conservation at SIMS.The missions of the club are:

    • Ensuring a Standard Operating Procedure for the college.
    • To make student managers ready for the role of energy managers and energy auditors.
    • To make the student managers realise the importance of energy conservation in various fields through energy conservation
    • To carry out Social initiatives which would help in reducing the carbon footprint and will create awareness in the day-to-day procedures.

    TEDxSIUKirkee is an independently organized TED event operated under license from TED. At the day long conference we will feature eminent speakers from different walks of life will share unique ideas from India and all around the globe…

    Objective

    To lay the groundwork for dialogue, introduce people to new ideas, identify shared values and allow them to decide what the change will be and when they will make it. Though it is not easy but possible and needs a constant vigour, determination, will power and ingenuity. Ingenuity is the way in which human minds have influenced how we think, work, play, construct and conduct friendships and other relationships, interact with each other, find solutions to problems, cause problems, transform things and rationalize thought.

    To make a difference in society one doesn’t have to do big things rather small things done with right intentions can make more of an impact. Ingenuity Can Fix Past Mistakes and Shape the Future.

    Community

    TEDxSIUKirkee’s community is multi-disciplinary and diverse, both ethnically and socially – our Delegates represent almost every field. This breathtaking range of experiences and perspectives provides the richest possible landscape for creative collisions. Any chance meeting at TEDxSIUKirkee can lead to exciting new ideas and insights. Each conversation with a new person could reveal new trends, treatments and technologies – or spark them.

    TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.

    The 360 Degree Team of SIMS, organized a talk on ‘Building Self Confidence and Integration: The Key to become an Effective Leader’ which was given by Mr. Neville Lobo, VP, Corporate HR and L&T Leadership Director. He started off by going back to school and college days where teachers, parents and elders always advised us to study hard and perform well in academics, now when he looks back he realizes that the studious and the average scoring students are doing well in life but the backbenchers by which he meant who were not very good in academics are also doing extremely well today. Taking this point further, he explains that people who only had focus on academics are now restricted in terms of earnings. The corporate today requires a team player, an all-rounder and a person who carries himself well which is evident by the fact that we see this today in all the top people in various companies. The effectiveness of a leader depends on his attitude. The root of personality is the way in which a person develops his value and belief system and the way he looks at himself. Therefore, the most important aspect of a good personality is self-image, if it is negative it is because a person is negative from within and similarly for a positive self-image. It is important to understand value and love yourself which keeps growing your confidence. He concluded by giving the key traits of a leader which are a) How comfortable you are using power. b) Decision making ability. c) Initiative and Drive. d) How a person carries himself. e) Self Confidence. f) Integrated person: What you think, you feel, what you feel, you do. Hence, it is important to develop one’s personality
