This customised training program continued for 15 days starting from 24th August 2022 to 09th September 2022. Held across the auspicious occasion of “Parvadhiraj Daslakshan Mahotsav”, the workshop not only emphasised the spiritual enlightenment of the Jain students but also helped them to enhance their overall personality.

During the inaugural ceremony, Prof. (Dr.) R.N. Krishnia, Director, CTLD, delivered an expert lecture on Holistic Personality Development and its role in the VUCA world to have a sustainable career. Discussing changing business dynamics, he added, “changes are implemented at a rapid speed, thus it becomes crucial for the candidates to upgrade as a new version and tackle the problems of the business world by providing timely and effective solutions.” In other sessions, he covered a wide range of topics such as Environmental Analysis, Success Mantra, Self-Motivation, Creativity, Innovation, Addressing moral issues, Effective & Assertive Communication, etc.

Under the leadership and guidance of Prof. Krishnia, along with the collaborative efforts of the CRC team, effective training sessions were delivered by CTLD trainers and it made this event a successful one.
