About Persona

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.
Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
-Ayn Rand

At Persona our aim is to assist and guide your holistic development, whatever your age, as a successful, contented individual as well as a member of society.

The academic qualifications gathered from the various educational institutions, mostly prepare you for a good Career, in a classroom setting. As the saying goes, it is very difficult to totally fail in a classroom, in everything, unless you are not trying at all. The same is not true of real life though.

Our Courses sharpen both your Professional & Personal skills, more through practice rather than theory. We prepare you not only for earning a Living, but for handling Life.

Many of you have spent a major chunk of your school and college years striving to maximize your grades, which would enable you to gain entrance in good higher academic institutes or professional setups.

However, when you actually enter the battlefield of building a career and making life decisions, choosing professions, facing interviews, making personal life choices, and dealing with the challenges of day to day living, you find yourself falling short, sometimes confused and unprepared.

In effect, your development was unbalanced too much in favour of pure academics. By the time you acquire jobs, attempts are sometimes made by various corporate institutions to train you in Other Skills. But by then the job pressures are extreme, preventing, in the case of most individuals, effective assimilation of additional skills.

Without mastering and equipping yourself with the tools for leading a positive and planned life, progress in any career, as well as personal relationships, will stop beyond a point, irrespective of how good or bad your academic results were .

Among the many who qualify from the various institutions dotted around India, very few, in fact only a handful, reach their goals, realize their dreams, whatever they may be. This is not because the majority of them lack ambition, strength of mind or other qualifications. It is because those who aim for their dreams acquire a lot more than the dictated knowledge of uniformity.

We are also there for those who have progressed beyond the beginning, who are stuck in a rut in their professional as well as personal lives, those who are suddenly facing an empty nest, the children grown and gone, those who dream of utilizing their latent talents, those who are still searching for a meaningful purpose to their lives, for that search never really ends.

Your limitation, whoever you are – it is only your imagination.

How it works...

Firstly, People Skills enable individuals to effectively deal with many different types of people, situations and scenarios on a daily basis. The wider the range of others in terms of age, cultures and company levels that one can deal with, the better that person’s People Skills. Secondly, these Skills help in developing qualities which increases an individual’s efficiency, decision making skills and effectiveness in both the workplace and social situations.

The ability to develop a good personality, maintain a well-groomed appearance and knowledge of basic etiquette in a cross cultural milieu, both professional and social, has now been recognized as the basic skills required for success in most walks of life.

Weakness in developing any one of these skills can seriously handicap an individual in a very competitive global scenario. In today's world academic knowledge alone is not sufficient to grow and excel.

"Your skills can get you in the door; your people skills are what can seal the deal."
Depending on the willingness of the participant to honestly emulate the lessons taught, these courses have proved to be very successful for the majority of our students. The principal reason behind this is the scientific approach to the subjects taught. Self development no longer remains a vague area of spiritual quest. It is a detailed scientific process that will always produce the same successful results for all, if followed correctly.

Among the teeming many who enter the competitive arena of jobs, business, and entrepreneurship, these courses give our students the edge, the qualities that set them apart in a crowd. These are no longer skills that are “nice to have”, they are skills which one “has to have” to succeed.

The idea behind this course is not to change you into a completely different person – the idea is to push you to become the best possible version of yourself, imparting to you the ability to develop your strong points to the fullest and deal so efficiently with your weak points that they stop being obstacles in your life. In a way, we are not attempting to get rid of anything you have; we are learning to celebrate everything you are.

As Henry Ford noted, "Think you can, or think you can't, and either way you'll be correct"
There is no attempt to judge you. The attempt is to make you the best you can be, and to help you to live the best life you can create for yourself, professionally and socially.

Confident, Assertive, Focussed

Individuals exhibit different personality traits – each with its strong and weak points. The aim of this course is to help students identify and develop their strong points as well as deal with their weak points, turning some into assets rather than liabilities.

A personality cannot be improved in a day’s or week’s or month's time. It is a skill one hones through practice. However, one needs to be aware of the guiding rules for achieving the same.

Our courses are aimed at making individuals confident, assertive, focused and aware of themselves and their surroundings. It will enable them to gain control over their lives, develop a positive frame of mind, learn to manage their time, stress and anger and use their talents and skills in the best possible manner.
