The Art of Living is going to organise the first I Excel I Lead workshop at Hotel Park Hyatt, Road no. 2, Banjara Hills, in Hyderabad from August 14 to16. This renowned programme will bring to the fore a unique module in leadership training, enterprise management meshed with yoga, meditation and powerful talent enhancement techniques. Specially designed for business leaders and key decision makers in Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), the workshop will showcase novel approaches to boost team morale, performance efficiency, creativity and counter attrition in organisations.

"On the macro level, for the country to emerge economically stronger the burgeoning MSME sector needs to be made robust. This can be achieved only when the decisions of growth and expansion are taken from the State of a stress-free mind. I Excel I Lead programme provides the tools that can help them achieve this giant leap.” Since businesses are often fraught with the uncertainties of economic fluctuations, burnout or performance, the programme also gives meaningful insight into proactive and precise decision making by industry leaders with serene dynamism, shared, Jayshree, SME Coordinator, Hyderabad.

The I Excel I Lead event which has already gained credence among leading business institutions for its fresh approach to building a culture of creativity and innovation in organisations, will have participants experience yoga, pranayama and the world-renowned breathing technique Sudarshan Kriya, developed by humanitarian and founder of The Art of Living, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The powerful techniques will help eliminate stress, improve health, develop a sense of belongingness, and enhance latent skills, creativity and dynamism.

Organisations such as TransAsia, eServe which have earlier participated in the workshop have vouched for its ability to “enhance team effectiveness, morale and enthusiasm”. “Worker absenteeism has dropped by 50% in 2 years”, added representatives from Aarti International. Apart from being an ‘excellent stress reliever’, as pointed out by some participants, it also taught the ‘keys to success'

. "The program was a good mix of interactive sessions relevant to our goals" added Dr Janakiraman Ramchandran, chairman of Ganga Gen Biotechnologies Pvt Ltd. The event will feature a panel discussion on "The Next Big Leap: Insights into scaling up" to be attended by leaders from the industry. A Q&A session on ‘Paradigms of Leadership’ with Art of Living founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, will virtually connect participants of the event spread across several cities.

To be held concurrently in several cities across India, the I Excel I Lead workshop will thus offer an excellent opportunity for ‘virtual networking’ with peers in the industry. For further details or registration, please contact Mr Sudarashan – 9000966684 and Venkatesh 9885466623
