Manage LIFE

My Method - You Prepare
I do not teach academically. People need to relax and have an enjoyable experience and try things out for themselves in order not just to learn effectively, but also to be able to put what they have learned into effect.
I believe in an attitude of curiosity, openness and adventure, and a way of being able to find out what works in people's minds in order for them to be able to get the best out of life. As each person is different, I enable each one to discover what works best for them.
Therefore get ready with questions for us to discuss. Make it more interactive. Let the learning with me be more of experiential rather than academic.
Introduction
In Organizational Behaviour, the three components are Self, Team and Organizational System. The Human element in this aspect is the Self and the Team. Human is important because the Organizational System is evolved by the performance of the individuals over a period of time.
Self is flow through Motivation, Confidence, Values, Stress, Time etc..
The Team / Group is managed by the Communication Skill and Inter Personal Relationship etc.
Motivation & Personal Confidence
Any Performance depends on the Motivation, Skill and the Opportunity. The opportunity and the Skill are very much dependent on the Motivation and Personal Confidence.
All of us are motivated externally and internally if and have confidence, though all of us could probably benefit from being more motivated and confident in at least some situations. True confidence is based on knowing that you can achieve what you need and want to, and also, very importantly, being able to deal with challenging situations in a resourceful and positive way. It means that instead of being at the mercy of our emotions, we can have our emotions supporting us.
HOW TO ?
• Feel Good!
• Manage the mind to creates good feelings and moods
• Deal with negative emotions
• Manage Stress
• Prevent, defuse and overcome tension
• Detach from and rise above problems
• Build confidence and
• Motivate yourself.
Stress Management
Many believe that their job is extremely stressful and that their work related stress was making them physically ill. Stress has been specifically implicated in heart disease, eating disorders, stroke, insomnia, ulcers, accident proneness, cancer, decreased immunity, chronic headaches, diabetes, depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue. In fact, estimates are that 50 to 80% of all physical disorders have psychosomatic or stress related origins.
The personal and interpersonal management skills are foundation to the coping strategies to overcome stress.
Major issue for stress is bad time management (As commonly said). But it is not Time that is to be managed and neither stress. The management of activity will lower tension and prevent the risk.
For those often essential individuals who have put too much effort for too long into what they sensed was vital activity; pushing themselves beyond the threshold of efficiency are bound to have stress / tension. Burnout does not happen to those who are never committed.
Have stressed people in the organization. Enable them to relax. So that they can far more rapidly recuperate their energies. Once they are recovered, help them re-asses their vision, review their strategies, learn new responses and regain their enthusiasm to take on their tasks more satisfyingly and efficiently.
Communication Skills & Inter Personal Relationship
One may have to interact with dissatisfied, frustrated, irate, disgruntled, impatient and sometimes abusive people around him.
It is not just enough dealing in demanding situations with other people, it is also getting people to trust you, to feel good about you and to feel wonderful themselves. It is about being able to see the other person's point of view in a way that makes it far easier to get them to see yours. It is about being able to encourage, inspire and motivate others to assist you in getting what you want in a way that also gets them what they want.
Good Skill is the mastery over
• The subtle secrets of rapport
• Getting people's attention
• Respectful assertiveness and how to take over the lead
• Handling difficult people
• How to detach and avoid taking things personally
• How to see things from the other person's point of view
• Put your own point of view across more effectively, but politely
• Create a 'Win-Win' situation,
• Willing to be unreasonable.
• How to make people feel good
• Inspire and motivate others
• Simple skills on letter / word / telephone / email / sms etc.
• Simple yet surprising language patterns
• Better communication / clean and clear words
• Reading people
• Clarifying communication
• Why people assume so much and how to constructively challenge their assumptions
• The structure and language of influence
• Body Language
Each and every individual in the organization have to feel to raise from existence through recognition to growth. Feel for the increase in effectiveness of the organization, so that the best of the resource can satisfy the needs of the organization for which it is created. Concern should be on performance improvement, capacity development and adaption to the changing environment. Methods of yester years are inadequate for problems of tomorrow.

CONTENT - brief

Dr T P Sasikumar
SCIENTIST, Space Department
PRINCIPAL DIRECTOR, Government of India

9502038875 (Hyderabad) / 9400105373 (kerala)
drtpsasikumar@gmail.com / dr_tps@yahoo.com


Content of the Sessions (2 Hours) + 1 Hour Interaction on each of the modules.
Dr T P Sasikumar has handled thousands of lectures / workshops on varied topics across variety of audience from Trivandrum through Chennai, Bangalore, Mysore, Hyderabad, Pune to Delhi. Visited UAE, Oman for series of lectures.

So far spoke to more than a lakh of youth (students) / half-a lakh of teachers and over a lakh of public.

The sessions are lively lectures (power-point presentation – optional) with jokes to make it lighter, eastern quotes in slokas to stress the point into the heart (manas) of the participants. Seldom activities to relate it to the daily life are the specialty.

Goal-Role-Value Setting
The desire, relation, being a social being are the articulates of a well-balanced human being. The session provides the self-evaluation exercise and then makes the participants realize that the goal needs to be sharpened to perform well. The interpersonal relationship aspects are stressed. Motivation and dharmic (value based) living is inculcated into the participants. Helps to generates good attitude, more productivity, better working relationship.

Time / Activity Management
Talks about the LIFE accounts. Managing time is impossible as the time is not in our control. The session will guide one to manage the activity. Exercise of time accountability is to make one realize the wasted life / time. This brings in a new time scheduling skill with activities in life. Life is filled with 200% busy schedules so that no time is left for one to think. Only action will make the moments of joy to recollect and rejoice in the days ahead.

Stress / Tension Management
Stress is essential part of performance. The stress building is the aim of progress in life. Every one as they grow higher in life, acquires more and more comfort, ads stress in life. The session throws light on managing the stress and limiting it to the highest level, so that tension is not created. Stress is productive and tension is non-productive. No-Problem will be the catch phrase in the session with which the tension is out and stress is build-up to be highly productive. Options of solutions are drawn to create activity.

Mind Control / Mind Management
Mind (manas) is the cause of all the activity and non-activity. Manas is the enemy and friend too. The session takes on through the Ramayana and Gita lessons of Vasishta and Krishna on the control of mind to take-up the karma (activity) in hand. Deals with the methods of life to be made simple and cheerful. Examples are drawn to illustrate the conflicts in daily life between the manas and buddhi (intellect) and the atma (spirit) that gets into the consensus activity and keeps us active / dull. The tips and tricks of mind control will be illustrated.

Personality Development
The personality is understood to be the overall development in five-folds – viz, physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual. The session brings in the lessons from the traditional bharatheeya knowledge of this five-fold development. As a grahastha (family person) the reality is taken into fold in defining the balanced life style. Thus the personality is redefined to fit the application into the profession, family and the social life.

Confidence Building
Attitude is the core of activity setting. Lessons are being told to make one with highly motivated plans in life. It is seen many times that the practical aspects of circumstances and the skill are not considered while the attitude is set. This brings in the failure rate and depression in highly motivated people. The balancing of the skill, opportunity and the motivation is done with an evaluation of individuals’ confidence. The measure of the confidence will create the innovative process of self-realization and preparing for the better performance.

Communication Skill
The actualization of the interpersonal relationship / indriya (sense organs) performance is the communication process. Communication is understood as the internal process. Internal Conflict and Ego created inhibitions are dealt. The basic step from data collection to presentation is explained with example exercise. Most common known communication practices are taught involving all the participants in exercises.

Being Better
Better is a comparative statement. Many a times the comparison is done with the external / out-side. Individual performance is assessed based on the performance of the other around us. The session makes the participants to realize that individual progress is to be measured with the performance of how and what one has been in the past and how is the future.

Self Discipline
Most of the people have aversion on receiving advices. One has to learn from the experiences to correct and learn the ways in life. Most of the experiences are useless as the realization in life comes delayed. The aim of the session is to make one to understand that life is to enjoy. But never should have the reason to say ‘Oh, I shouldn’t have done it’. Activity that is imposed by self to make the life in line with society will be always appreciated. Imposed by the external parameters is always a burden. Session makes the participants enjoy the beauty of self-discipline.

Effective / Affective Teaching
Teaching is an art. Knowing to whom you are teaching is more important than what you are teaching; goes the saying. Teaching is an art of communication and it ends only when the student learn. Special methods of teaching and evaluation of the self-teaching skill is the core of the session. Makes teachers to realize the nobility of the profession and create interest in teaching. Suggested methods will ease the job and make it (a)effective. Teaching comes from the heart. 30 points to students and 20 points to teachers and parents are being followed by many.

Efficient Learning
Learning makes a human different than an animal. A lot among the human are average learners. Capability to learn is not much being used by many of the learners. Students spent lot of time unnecessary instead of using it for creative activity. Session makes the students to realize that time being invested today is important for building up a life of tomorrow. Provides clues for making learning interesting. Studies with concentration and exam preparation are enjoyable and group activity is encouraged. Session helps students to create confidence. 30 points to students and 20 points to teachers and parents are being followed by many.

Art of Parenting
Many become parent by accident. Maturity is not that one gains from experience in handling problems. It is the state of mind to be set for facing the problems. Early experience of the child makes planning for future life. Immature dealings from the early parenthood and lack of attention are a big issue among the children. Parents can’t run away from the responsibility by finding excuse of working and lack of time after earning for the future. Balancing profession and parenting is an issue most of the family, especially women faces these days. Session discusses the day-to-day handling of the issues to the major plans to be adapted. 30 points to students and 20 points to teachers and parents are being followed by many.

Life Style / Healthy Practices
Most of the time leading life is a day-to-day activity and nothing is planed around what is in future. Enjoying / being lazy everyday is maintained without much care on what is really wanted to be done. It is not the lack of knowledge of the best practices in life at par and in food particular, but life becomes mechanical and unnoticed in its course. Session makes the eyebrows up to analyse the self and provides the scope for retrospection. Provides hints for planning life style / health practices according to individuals choice and circumstances.

Spirituality
Understanding spirituality have its ways through guru / rituals / religious practices / etc. Most of the time the seeker do not reach the next level as the path itself is seen as the end result. Session defines and distinguishes the conceived spirituality and the realized understanding. Talks about science of spirituality.

Science of Rituals
India is known for its preservation of the past rituals. Most of the Indian tradition had science in it. Session scientifically-philosophically-socially-spiritually analyses many of the traditional chanting, practices in poojas / rituals, yaga / yajna (scarifies) etc. Getting educated and learning confirms the belief and helps to look at the rituals more meaningfully. Blind faith and practices are replaced by more realistic and useful.
