So the students of Akash Institute Kolkata (refer post – https://simerjeet.wordpress.com/2012/07/25/belief-simers-proven-path-to-relief/) now look forward to the challenges ahead and are equipped to take them on manfully!
But the institute knows ALL its “stakeholders” – Teachers, the management, students and PARENTS / peers must contribute to what will be a team effort!
It understands the INFLUENCE AND IMPACT THEY HAVE ON EACH OTHER.
Fortunately, after the thumping success of Simerjeet Singh’s motivational session with students, their families had picked up the buzz and were already FULL OF EAGER QUESTIONS FOR SIMER. And he always looks enjoys being with an eager audience such as the one that assembled in the G D Birla Auditorium in Kolkata. Over 800 parents participated in this interactive session conducted by Simerjeet on Positive Parenting.
From Kolkata to Gujarat, Simerjeet is now busy conducting positive parenting sessions all around the country. Another session on the same lines was conducted for about 100 parents of Tapti Valley International School in Surat (http://www.tvef.edu.in/). This wonderful school is flourishing under the able leadership of Principal Mr. Neeraj Bhargava who has an impeccable record in school leadership. It was at his invitation that Simerjeet travelled to Surat and conducted a motivational session for teachers and one for parents.
The talks focused on helping parents realize HOW MANY IMPORTANT ROLES they play in a child’s life.
Simerjeet’s message was subtle and hard hitting at the same time – You are a stakeholder in the success of a VERY SENSITITVE YOUNG FOLLOWER.
As author Charles Swindoll wrote, “Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.”
So do you, the LEADER, know what the young follower wants from you, And how seemingly minor things at your end MAKE ABIG DIFFERENCE TO HIS PERFORMANCE AND BEHAVIOUR?
Simer TOLD AND SHOWED how parental vibes, through the environment they create, virtually decide what the child is really focused on !
Simerjeet’s organization, Cutting Edge Learning Systems had just finished a nationwide survey asking youngsters one simple question – “What do you really want from your Parents?”
Over 2,000 students had participated in the survey and the findings were interesting yet not surprising. It seems that we tend to take a lot of things for granted and brush issues under the carpet, hoping they will go away. Sadly, that’s not the case.
Simerjeet’s session, based on this research, urged parents to listen and tune in to their children.
THE POWER OF POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT CANNOT BE OVERSTATED. As corporate leaders are taught – and Simer is a stellar corporate leadership speaker – we need to CATCH ‘EM DOING THINGS RIGHT!
Interaction, practical exercises and a Q&A session enriched the scope of Simerjeet’s talk.
One major thought that emerged was about being ROLE MODELS to children. The famous psychologist Carl Jung said, “Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.”
Simer, as usual, cut straight to specifics, identifying where and how that might be feasible for whom (in the room)
So far so pleasant!
But Simer also broaches sensitive, slightly ego-ridden issues and maturely steers to amicable outcomes.He convinced parents to STOP COMPARING WARDS TO OTHER STUDENTS and support them in becoming THE BEST THEY (others do not count) CAN BECOME.
IN THE END, every parent left more confident, committed more unconditionally in her support, more aware and EVEN CLOSER TO his child.
Simer-time was effective yet again!
