The motivational video being showed at the beginning of the session ignited the spark among the participants to do something BIG, despite all the adversities that the universe throws upon them in the due course of life. A psychometric test, taken up by the participants helped them have a better understanding of themselves, thereby enhancing self-awareness. It even aided them with the capability to do a SWOT analysis for making a choice of the apt career pathway.
The valuable mantras and success stories shared by the CEO, Founder of Nirmaan, Mr Mayur Patnala helped students understand the broader dimensions of life so, they could aim at the attainment of “Global Goals”.

The understanding of the participants on the key aspects of LS&CG was evaluated through the assessments and small assignments carried out during the session.The workshop was concluded with the feedback session which was a reflection of the participants take-aways from the workshop wherein each participant shared their experiences and valuable feedback.
