Pune: Learning and Development (L&D) Global’s Pune Chapter meet was held on 14 January 2017 with the theme “I am still learning”. Two key note sessions have been hosted at the chapter meet. Prof MS Pillai, Director, Sadhana Centre for Management & Leadership Development, delivered talk on how to measure learning effectiveness through positive behavioural change. Mr Milind Kher, CEO Hospitality Quorum (HQ), conducted the session on Why emotional intelligence makes business sense?
Prof Pillai highlighted how working with the behavior of people makes a huge difference to their effectiveness. He cited an example how a visually challenged boy was able to perform everything that sighted people can do with great efficiency after he worked with him. Narrating his experience, he also showed how a boy from, rural Rajasthan who could scarcely speak English, has now started representing India at international for after receiving inputs from him.
Milind Kher, an expert in emotional intelligence, simplified various aspects and essence of emotional intelligence. He demonstrated how emotional intelligence plays a major role in garnering business. Mr Kher cited data from top authorities from Goldman on the one hand and Bradberry and Greaves on the other to highlight how emotional intelligence makes business sense.
