The Department of Statistics of Rajagiri College of Social Sciences organized an M-power Persona Enhancement program on 7th and 8th of November 2022 for the 1st year PG students of the department. It was held at GLC hall and was a two-day programme. The aim of the program was to frame the students to develop their soft skills that will be very helpful for them in their life for attending various interviews and jobs. The session was handled by Mr Krishnakumar, founder director vertical eye and Mrs Mridula Kumar, Director vertical eye.
The program was started with an interactive session. The students were given an idea of different soft skills that they have to develop. Then various management activities were conducted. Through these, students gain many skills. They learned about time management, the importance of smart work and setting a goal and so on. The students were divided into different groups and were asked to suggest names, logos and taglines for their respective groups. This was done to develop their creativity, uniqueness and competitive mind. After that we had another management activity of tapping a ball. Then they were told to share their learnings in group wise in a way that a group had a scribe and two spoke persons. After that, a mime competition was conducted and each group was given different topics. This was targeted to improve their self-confidence and creative minds. With this, day 1 activities came to an end. Then they had assigned some works to be done by night and for the second day too which includes video analysis and interpretation, badge making, learning dairy.
The second day begins by sharing the experience of the previous day. A lot of management activities were conducted on this day too. They had a quiz based on the video analysis and interpretation. The students had a group discussion within each group, preceded with a mock group discussion, where different topics were assigned to each group. This has improved their communication skills, thoughts, self-confidence, which will be very helpful for appearing for interviews, placements.
