In response to we choose to stay relevant and initiate quick actions by introducing few innovations in our program nurturing a new genre of (CONSCIOUS) leaders to lead in the VUCA world as mere accumulation of knowledge & degree will not be sufficient in the VUCA environment. Requirement of effective leadership in a time of VUCA will be to work on one’s BEING ie to being authentic and tapping into one’s EMOTION & INTUITION as the guiding light from within. The 1st year students went through a special session on " What is not taught in B Schools" emphasizing the importance of Inside out leadership & 4 important topics enabling them to have a broader perspective of the VUCA world and carefully planting a seed in them to fine tune their preparedness as a ( conscious ) leader. The topics chosen were Mindful Communication, Mindful Eating, MBA approach towards MBA & Happiness is the latest productivity. How Mindful eating leads to higher productivity? How Mindful communication is an essential skill set in the VUCA world? Why Fortune 500 companies are embracing Mindfulness & Conscious Capitalism in a significant manner?
