nACH our HR club was having it’s inauguration function and we had an opportunity to attend a lectured by Mr. Shashikanth Jeyaraman, he is the CEO & Principal Advisor at Hex Advisory (P) Ltd and also the Founder of HR Sangam . He is highly experinced manager and an eloquent orator , who oration commands attention, but the most likeble quality about the lecture was he kept it interactive and casual. The lecture he gave concentrated on the charecter that one should posses in order to be recognized as an effecient employee, leader and manger.
He started of his session by playing the counting game .For those of you who don’t know the game let me just explain you the rules group of 20 people would start counting from one but on every multiple of 7 you would have to say 7 up and thump your chest ,if you fail to do so you will be out and the game will start from bbeginning. As the game moved forward and number of people reduced he introduced new rules like thumbs up on 5’s multiple &close up on 6’s multiple. this game was all about adapting to the changes.
He used the example of Virender Sehwag and how he once stepped out of the crease to hit a sixer on reverse swing ball, to explain how to adapt in tough situations and how not to be scared when status quo changes .
He told us story of A.P.J Abdul Kalam , our former president Dr Kalam also known as missile man of India had sucessfully created an weightless material for the rockets , but according to Dr Kalam his greatest joy was when he used the same material to produce prosthetic legs for children.It tought us perseverense , humility and the fact that we should become capable enough to be useful to others.
He concluded his lecture by giving us the example of the Indian army in Siachan glacier , one of the most secluded places ,with no way of communicating with outside world, where you could die due to frost bite and how soldiers have to even work along side the dead bodies of their commmrades all for their love for our nation to teach us about how to be dedicated and work under extreme conditions.
