In today’s dynamic world, change is fast and often unpredictable. Adaptation of the mind to these changes is not always an easy or smooth process. People engaged in different fields of profession find it daunting to cope with the new demands faced by them. The methods to engagement with fellow human being have changed. It can be witnessed in every sphere of life, be it the technique of parenting and communicating to children, the negotiation skills required to manage a team in a corporate sector or the ability to empathize with patients in a medical setting. There are no training programs available for professionals to learn, apply and practice the skills required to engage with people problems in their respective sector. ‘Quick fix’ strategies available in the market are not dependable and authentic.
