"Tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow
Creeps in this pretty place from day to day.
To the last syllables of recorded time
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death."
- Macbeth, describing his hallucinations
of death due to paranoid stress
Shakespeare has described it aptly. It's like a marathon that stops on the track seeming more like a 100m dash. If you thought heart attacks, hypertension and breakdowns were meant only for people who are well past their prime, think about Dewang Mehta. You will feel a shiver down your spine.
As the new economy rocks and rolls, anxiety attacks, stresses, nervous breakdowns - call them what you will - are finally taking their toll on India Inc. Barely 30 live wire fast-trackers and on-the-fly executives are increasingly becoming casualties of the hostile pressure-play seen in corporate deskrooms. And this is being rubbed on to the family members as well.
Ironically, the reason for the victim's state is not the pressure, not the new
economy, not even stress. It is the victim himself. Since it's all about controlling
the self, clearer goal-setting and the quality of living that set apart the succumbed
and the never-say-die. Usually, the never-say-die have taken a leaf or two from
our spiritual Mecca, India's rich tradition of scriptures emphasizing on inner
control. And back home, an enterprising lady who is also a pioneer in personality
development in town, is reviving that tradition to set things right for the succumbed
and the seekers of well-being.
Suguna, a HRD consultant and trainer and the pioneer of Sugun Courses, has been
conducting self-improvement courses for the past 18 years. Sugun Courses aim at
the inner and outer development of the self, keeping in view people's growth needs.
Suguna has caringly put together courses built around the world-renowned Dale
Carnegie methods, group dynamics and her own empirical knowledge. She has many
corporate training programs to her credit and over 2,000 people have benefited
from her courses.
In continuation with their pursuit, the Sugun Courses are conducting a workshop on Soukhyam (well-being), which is designed to help one evaluate the quality of one's living, acquire self-knowledge and make purposeful commitments in life. Soukhyam will be a very participative and experimental workshop where group interactions through a series of exercises will help one find and choose paths of self-enhancement.
The highlights of the workshop will be emphasis on the critical Inch, the essence of communication, clearer goal setting and self-mastery. A special feature of the workshop would be the module where Indian value systems will be taught in the form of action theories structured on the Dale Carnegie memory methods, making practice and application easier.
Soukhyam is being conducted as a prelude to the main courses, called Swabhava (self-expression) and Swadharma (change). Swabhava is an effective speaking course that is streamlined and updated for dynamic communication. Skill-based, the training is a revealing expression of human personality. Swadharma provides a spiritual perspective that you can translate into easy-to-apply terms to the people around you. It is a platform for understanding your motivational factors.
A choice to enroll in these courses can be made by attending the workshop that gives you a peep into the in-depth content. Once a decision is made, a part of the workshop fee is absorbed into the main course fee.
Sugun courses consistently emphasize that they are not success formulae. The commercial
angle has been de-emphasized. For details please contact Suguna at 657-5063 or
