It was yet another Personal Effectiveness Programme. With the content too familiar, and the timings quite hectic, I was prepared for yet another hectic session that week. This session is especially hectic as it is spans 30 hours in the week over a period of 5 days and covers Communication, Thinking skills, Time management, Business Etiquette and finally Goal Setting. Also involves a lot of interaction, activities on all days and one on one sessions with most partipants.
Like in all sessions, when the session begins, the energy flows in automatically when I interact with the participants and that was a week of interesting effort.
This batch was no extra ordinary, a typical software crowd, but most of them had the willingness to learn and interact and refine themselves. End of the week, the participants were happy, they liked the session and I was also content that I delivered a good session. The last day when we were winding up, one of the participants came and told me that he has written a Poem for the way I had handled the session.
And he went on to read his poem. I was touched, happy and had one of those "emotional moments". But you see, I was a facilitator and I guess I pulled it off pretty well.
Here is the poem...
I am sure Haja Mohammed does not know, no one has written a poem exclusively for me.. till date !!!
For those who do not understand Tamil, ( in which the poem is written), he has described the five modules that i had handled poetically ( in chaste Tamil) and finally has said, " You will succeed definitely, since the facilitator is Vincy"
