Training and Consultancy
MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (MDP) AND FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (FDP)
MDP
a. I have single-handedly designed, coordinated, and taught 18 three-day MDPs (two at IIM Kozhikode, two at IIM Indore, 13 at NIBM Pune, and one for Bank of Ceylon in Colombo, Sri Lanka). These MDPs draw to some extent on my own research areas, draw on some of the relatively recent OB topics (e.g., employees’ organizational citizenship behaviors, transformational leadership, organizational justice, organizational support, and workplace spirituality), and focus on enhancing employee performance and well-being through leadership, justice, support, and spirituality. For the two MDPs singlehandedly taught by me at IIM Indore in 2015, “Overall rating of the instructor” was 9.8 and 9.5 on a10 point scale. For 14 MDPs on enhancing bank employees’ performance and well-being through leadership, justice, support, and spirituality singlehandedly taught by me at NIBM campus from February 2015 to January 2019, 198 out of 210 sessions taught by me have received the ratings of 4.8, 4.9, or 5 (out of maximum possible score of 5 “excellent”).
FDP
a. Single-handedly designed, coordinated, and taught at IIMK six FDPs (3 of 6-day duration and 3 of 5-day duration) titled “Learning to Do Academic Research for Publishing in Academic Journals and for Doctoral Dissertations” in academic years 2008-9, 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2013-14, and 2019-20. In each of these FDPs, I alone did the teaching of all sessions amounting to about 36 hours (in 6-day duration FDP) and 30 hours (in 5-day duration FDP). For one of these FDPs at IIMK on academic research in 2013 (December 2-7, 2013 at IIMK; 25 participants; all 24 sessions covering 36 hours over 6 days were taught by me singlehandedly), the official feedback document received from the FDP Office indicates that for “the effectiveness of sessions/module”, out of 24 sessions (of 1.5 hours each), 21 sessions received “very good” (the extreme positive rating anchor point) from 20 or more (out of 25) participants. Thus, for about 80% of the sessions, about 80% of the participants provided the highest extreme positive rating on the feedback rating scale anchor points.
b. In April 2009, I single-handedly designed and taught a 3-day (April 13-15, 2009) FDP on academic research at K.J. Somaiya Institute of Management Studies & Research (SIMSR) in Mumbai for SIMSR faculty. (Instructor “Subject Knowledge” rating: 4 out of 4).
c. In July 2010, I single-handedly designed and taught a 3-day module on academic research methods as a part of FDP of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) for faculty participants from various institutes in India. (Instructor subject “Knowledge base” rating: 4.8 out of 5, “Course content & coverage “ rating: 4.63 out of 5, “overall learning” rating: 4.5 out of 5)
d. In September 2010, I single-handedly designed and taught a 3-day (September 7-9, 2010) FDP on academic research at Symbiosis International University in Pune for the faculty members of Symbiosis International University.
e. In May 2012, I single-handedly designed, coordinated, and taught one 6-day (May 21-26, 2012) FDP titled “Learning to Do Academic Research for Publishing in Academic Journals and for Completing Doctoral Dissertations” at Symbiosis International University in Pune for the faculty members of Symbiosis International University. (Instructor “Subject knowledge” rating: 4.9 out of 5)
f. In April 2015, I conducted a 3-day FDP module on academic research for a group of NIBM faculty members.
g. In February 2021, I singlehandedly taught one FDP on academic research methodology to a group of PhD-holding faculty members from the School of Management (PG) at MITWPU University and the feedback rating received for the “subject knowledge” aspect was 4.93 out of 5.
