US-based Trainers Academy (JCI Zone 1), working under principles of Junior Chamber International (USA) organized a two-day management development programme at Lovely Professional University (LPU) on 20 July 2018. The programme titled as ‘Revitalize the Trainer’ was organized for the Zone & National Trainers of JCI India and LPU staff members. The programme was spearheaded by a renowned international corporate trainer and business coach Raman Nayar. Former national president JCI India Mukhinder Singh and National Trainer from JCI India Rahul Ahuja also guided the participants. During the training programme, 24 trainers were clubbed in 5 groups and provided with novel techniques for further designing effective training programmes in their respective areas. The resource persons kept the delegates thoroughly engrossed in the day & night continuous engagement of more than 20 hours’ training.  

The delegates worked on the programme designs and had a real-time experience of group dynamics. Training sessions provided participants with opportunities for personal development & dynamics, effective communication and goal setting. This all helped the participants to speak effectively, learn leadership skills, improve communication abilities and enhance development.

LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal appreciated the Human Resource Development Centre (HRDC) at the University for organizing industry relevant management development programmes. Mr Mittal exhorted the Centre to propagate more of such collaborations with the industry, professional bodies and NGOs for providing quality training to staff members and visiting bodies.
