    Hi Rahul,

    This is a great topic. Given the content that comes with the 7 aspects of leadership orientation, do you think you'll be able to squeeze it in the 30min timeslot you have given yourself? I'm sure you will have real life examples of each of the attributes and steps for us to inculcate them.

      Hi Rajiv,

      Good to know you liked the topic.

      Completly agree with your point. However, 45 minutes (considering little-no break between session) is too less to cover any topic thoroughly. Not everybody will engage with every orientation however, every if participants get engaged with one of the orientation and takes something with them, it would server the purpose.

      Many a times, one may be following few of them orientation but do not recognize and if this session helps them reconnect, I would be happy. Though I have 30 minutes for core topic, I will be using all 45 minutes of talk related to the topic. Repeatation is mother of learning and hence it is required as human brain can absorb only 15% of what they read/listen.

      Apollogies for the late response.
