As part of the ongoing expert talk series at TAPMI, the college once more opened its arms to another distinguished personality – Mr. Sandip Grover, President and Group Head HR & CSR at Welspun Group. Mr. Grover is a master practitioner in the Human Resources field with a teacher’s heart. He started the lecture by asking all students present how they were feeling and why. Instead of a dull lecture on HR practices, the students received a friendly interactive and extremely interesting session on developing one’s attitude. It is after all rare for a corporate leader to shift away from business lessons and focus on the importance of a student’s personal development and happiness.

He spoke how in today’s environment, a person’s emotional quotient was given more importance than his intelligence when it comes to recruitment or job responsibilities. He also dedicated a part of the lecture speaking on the Welspun Group and its transformation into a leading industry giant over the years.

However most of his talk was based on helping one change for the better. He advised the students on the importance of having a right attitude and peace of mind when it comes to work. He expressed seven steps to having a good attitude and positive outlook in life which were truly relevant and the morale was helped by motivational videos shown by him. Overall his guest lecture was widely appreciated by the students and I am sure there would be many more opportunities for him to inspire coming generations of managers.
