“Become An Instructor”

Becoming an instructor can happen at any point of one’s life- it can be fitted seamlessly into your work and you will realize that you are helping others to move forward professionally or helping them to be more at ease with themselves and their surroundings, or to find the right expression for something. 

Aspiring instructors wishing to take up teacher training jobs or becoming corporate trainers or leadership trainers. We are helping not only in the growing numbers  of exceptional facilitators, but also helping to evolve people as professionals who help organizations to realize human potential and implement changes wherever required. Our course [programs] aims at helping to gain focus and clarify purpose. It helps to discover practical ideas and course of action, which can be implemented successfully into real life situations 

Becoming an instructor whether it be in the form of a trainer or a teacher, one must cultivate a few teaching techniques and strategies like

Positive Body Language:

This includes maintaining eye contact, keeping the communication interesting, using the correct body posture while interacting with candidates, among other things.

Active Listening:

Again it is all about making a person feel comfortable in your presence. Using of encouragement and paying attention.

Paraphrasing and Summarizing:

Focus on the key words and keep the attention on the discussion.

Offering Encouragement:

Increase the comfort level in the group by making each member feel appreciated for his or her contribution.

Neutrality:

Role of an instructor at times is to listen to the opinions and ideas of others and encourage them to express as well as share before expressing his/her own opinions. At times it also means refereeing in a difficult situation which calls for tact and diplomacy, especially in a heterogeneous group of participants.

“LEARNING STRATEGIES”

Learning strategies

Learning strategies or study skills determine the approach for achieving the learning objectives. The strategies are usually tied to your needs and interests to enhance learning and are based on many types of learning styles.

Here are some strategies that can help you be successful in your studies.

Set small, achievable goals

Start with small steps to reach higher targets.

For example, try to learn 5 new English vocabulary items every day.

Set a 30 minutes study session every day.

Learn the lyrics of an English song every now and then.

Read a short English text every day.

Setting small targets is much better than setting huge goals that you cannot achieve. Remember that “small drops of water make the mighty ocean”

Plan your studies

Planning your studies gives meaning to your work. If you know all the steps necessary to achieve a goal and these steps are written down on a piece of paper, it will be easy for you, then, to see the whole picture.

Be motivated

The secret to success is that you should be motivated to learn. Try to avoid boredom by having fun in what you do. Try to find a positive aspect to studying English.

Read about what you are interested (hobbies, fields of interest…) in English.

Watch your favorite films in English

Listen to your favorite English songs and learn the lyrics

Write your diary in English.

Read about your favorite stars in English websites…

Remember, we learn better and fast things we really want to learn.

Manage your time

In order to manage your time successfully, having an awareness of what your goals are will assist you in prioritizing your activities. Time management provides you with the opportunity to create a schedule that works for you, not for others. This personal attention gives you the flexibility to include the things that are most important to you.

Set a reward for yourself

Set a reward for yourself that you can look forward. For example, when you reach a goal, give yourself a reward:

  1. Watch a movie.
  2. A delicious snacks.
  3. Meet your friends.
  4. Go to the café.

Junior Michael Jackson

It was conducted in the tribute of  Michael Jackson. We planned well divided our role and responsibilities. It was learning by the dog show it really worked. . Organizer Mr Sunil could have been in touch with us. He didn’t ask any fellow or discussed at last movement he took help of fellows. It was nothing negative it gave learning to us that we  should be over-confident and team work should there, without that it is not possible to do.

From this activity what I understood is the planning and the implementation both are different context, here external influence more than the internal we can sell all the program tickets successfully but the response of audience to attend the show we cants ensure that, friends and relatives can be follow up, and convince to come but the people whom we don’t know we can force them.

The media coverage was done by the local news papers. It was covered in suvarna News channel.

Guest Speaker Mr. Venu Gopal

He is retired professor of law college. he also served Vivekananda institute of leadership development.  Mysore. At present he is working with number of professional courses in Karnataka. It was mind-blowing session for us. really he didn’t talk about entrepreneurship or how to develop those characteristics. But he mentioned how should be an entrepreneur. While starting session, he asked are you ready? we usually say yes. But he objected that don’t be ready for any thing. It shows or indicates that you are pre conceptual for the session.we expect some limited things or limit our expectations to some extend. It is nothing but creating safe zone for our self.

First day he explained “ORGANISE” He expand it and explained about that. O stands for Outlook, R- responsibility, G-gain, A-ability, N- Novelty, S – spiritual, The half day session was all about that. “Organizing is nothing but humanizing”. as an entrepreneur we have to organize people or their capability and resource. Responsibility is nothing but commitment towards work which we do. If we are working for out boss or promotion it is impossible to get satisfaction in life.

Gain it doesn’t mean that we need to gain something. we have to put effort that others we have to make capable that they can gain  something and they remember us for ever. like this it was a wast topic to understand and grasp it.

Second day we had a brain storming session by him, only it was our opportunity to have them for two-day as a guest speaker. Fear was the discussion topic. Fear is nothing but “False expectation apprehended realities” its nothing but escaping from the reality. not ready to face problems. by doing like this we are making our self  sadist .As a trainer we have to make people fearless, help them to realize their capacity and make them independent. It really made me to understand why I fear what should I do to get out of this problem?  really am very  thankful to him.

Accounting Classes

Accounting everyone should know,it is very much necessary for me to maintain my income and expenditure. But here I came to know as an entrepreneur if I start my own business then I can keep accountant for me. at least I should have the knowledge which will help to save myself being cheated by others. and at least i can understand balance sheet. I thank Miss. Rashmi To taking class on accounts. If I am emphasizing here about balance sheet means now I know what it is and its importance?

Today is 3rd day of Accounts class today we successfully complied. In these three days I understood about what do we mean by account? Why it is needed? who are the users? What will be the output of accounts or maintain accounts? Accounting concepts?  guidelines for the accounting? Rules of debit and credit? and at last learned and practiced accounting process.

Specially and in detail about Journalisation of transaction, Posting in the ledger accounts, Preparation of trail balance and lastly preparation of final accounts.

Guest Speaker Mr. Mahantesh (Samarthanam)

He is founder of Samarthanam NGO which is working for Physically challenged people. According to him taking more care of that person and discriminating him/her are both same, giving them comport.“Serving isolation keep them away from main stream”. he was inspired by his father he always use to say “Knowledge is Power” So he struggled a lot to give him an academic education which all normal children get. He has completed his M. Phil from Bangalore university. while talking he told that disables are denied, they have opportunity to address the demand and need of this community.

By this vision he started his organization in 1996 February 26. they convinced colleges to admit disable people to get education.later they construed boys and girl hostel, and exclusive education program.the first blind accountant was the result of his effort. they have cultural team which perform at international level. His aim is that the disable people also start to contribute to Tax of the country.

Samarthanam believes in creating opportunity. at present they are implementing this. recently they have invigorated Call center for disables. only they will work. he say we have to create opportunity to our self and to others.  It was really surprising to see that how much they creative and making them selves  dependent. He says that if we are not using your any part of body then it is waste.

Sub-Sector Analysis

We had a first visit to the field on sub sector of analysis.  Before this we had 2 days class on that, by Mr. Athani. who is professionally veterinary doctor. But later he got an interest to work in livelihood and at present he is working as Consultant for many organizations which are working for livelihood sector. Me and my team had mango as commodity, on which we have to do survey. We interacted with 20 to 25 different people. some of them were vendors, seller, and shop keepers. later we met wholesaler in APMC yard. where we collected all information about prize, quality and farmers. It was very helpful to us to understand what really market is? He explained from where it will imported  and how market will be created to those verity of mango etc.

At the last day we have to come up with the channels from where product moves and through which different way it reaches consumers. That map we have to draw. This study will help us to start our own business where market demand plays important role and this will help us to understand more deeply.

NGO Visits

Family planning association of India is working with health sector specially in rural area. It was initiated by 4 women in 1949 in Mumbai, by helping slum people. Later it worked on population control. It has a membership in IPPS. Which found and work with this type of organization world-wide. At present they are getting found from government and NGO also. from deshpande foundation they are getting found and working on Gutaka in selected villages.

Baal Balaga it is school which was started in 2000. which is having its own methodology to work with children first they started only LKG, every year they increased one standered. Here all children are individually focused by the teacher. children use to call teacher as uncle and aunty, to make sure that their relationship is good and close where children can learn more. learning by doing is the principle they follow to teach. state syllabus is being followed by them. The environment surrounding the school make children to involve in every activity.

The entrance or exit to the school are very different where children can do some physical activity and also enjoy each movement. they have a board rather than wall, where they can write. library is full of books it may be environment, GK, stories of legends etc. I felt these all are nesusury for the development of the child in each aspect.

BCT this NGO is working for different programs but in Kalgattagi It is working with school. where they are focusing on HIV.AIDS infected and effected children as well as sex workers children. to make sure that they should not be discriminated they added some children from general population. here they are supporting them in school home works and taking extra classes for the improvements. selected children are getting Life Skill Education training to understand what skill they need to develop to improve the living style and protect themselves from other problems.

Article

SOURCE:  BE FEARLESS…..        

DATE: NOVEMBER 2009, VOLUME 1

SUMMARY:   

                       Here the writer described about the person who made revolutionary change in a sector and given an idea to others to think out of the box. Here MBA student gone through a bunch of articles on waste management, he quickly realized that there is a need for such services in India. Then he took initiative for waste management at grass root level and tried to generate electricity but due to technical reasons he left that idea. But he struggled and achieved what he dreamt.

RESPONSE:

                  It is very nice to read and imagine about that person who struggled to grow his company. Collecting the garbage from houses is not that much and he started with slowly and reached at high level. Completed MBA and used the skill of publishing by word of mouth and not even published in papers. The idea to start business in grass root was good but it didn’t happen because of some technical reasons. At the initial he got economical support from his father through which he can run his company efficiently. His company is getting good recovery year by year. A person who was as idea while doing MBA and now had reached in such a manner that his “DREAMS COMES TRUE” and also he never let down his dream..as an a entrepreneur I can learn that each idea looks stupid before we try and implement it but when all come to know about that and understand the use of thing they start to respect and demand starts for it. i Knew and I saw that every innovator teased by others an his first innovation
