Outbound Training (OBT) for the SDMIMD Faculty Team

SDMIMD Faculty Members have participated in a 2-day exciting, memorable, and adventurous Out-Bound Training program at Lead College of Management, Palakkad, Kerala between November 17th and 18th. Through daring activities such as rappelling, ziplining, and team tasks, faculty participants were able to overcome fears, improve communication, and foster teamwork. Rope exercises, shooting, and claiming a wall all aided in the development of adaptation, decision-making, and calmness under pressure. The program's mix of physical and emotional challenges encouraged personal development, while events like fire walking fostered mental resilience and self-confidence. Participation in strategic activities such as board climbing and simulated electric rings aided in the development of leadership abilities and open communication.  Dr. Thomas, Founder & Director, of LEAD College of Management, Palakkad, and the SDMIMD Director and Faculty team discussed Management Education and future challenges in meeting the demands of students.  Dr. L. Gandhi, Associate Professor of OB&HRM at SDMIMD, coordinated the OBT.
