“Samir’s style was active-directive, participative, which kept us engaged. His knowledge of the subject is good.  In schools and college we are not taught about emotions & cognitions, where the focus in only on academics. It is so important to understand self; and this workshop helped to do just that. The way you dealt with such a heavy topic and made it easy by giving relevant examples, so that people could relate to it so well. Many of us already started relating it to our personal and professional life. Understanding this concept makes a lot of difference to perspectives about self and life. Constant practice of this will help bring in change in us.” "Ms. Mohanjit Nair- Head Training, The Leela hotel, Goa"
