“PARISHTI 2019” A State Level Summer Internship Project competition @ GLS University, Ahmadabad




Students across the world take admissions in the best institutes to have a solid foundation for their career. For academic students, especially studying MBA, jobs are the most important aspect of their education. But before a student gets in a full-fledged professional job, it is important to have hands on experience on how the corporate world works. This is where the summer internships play an integral part, the experience of which bridges the gap between academics and a job.



Summer internship is a few week stint which a student gets where he/she has a hands-on experience to understand a witness what it feels like to be a part of a company. Academics only teach the basics to a student but as an intern you learn about the practicality of how things work in the real world.



On 4th September 2019 “Parishti 2019” – a State Level Summer Internship Project competition was organised by GLS University, Ahmadabad. There were 45 participants from 25 colleges. Jinal Sheth and Arshi Khan, Students of second year MBA, Narmada College of Management had participated in the competition.


The GLS University arranged for the refreshments for all the participants. Then they provided a brief introduction about GLS through a presentation, and also an AV about GLS University its initiatives and achievements. Then all participants were told to go in their respective rooms according to their track number. And then the presentation of participants began.

CO-CREATE TRANSFORMATION (SESSION-4)



By: Mr. Parijat Gupta and Mr. Aakash Thakur.
Place: Narmada College of Science and Commerce (NCSC)
Date: 23rd February, 2019

 

 

Introduction
The fourth session of “CO-CREATE TRANSFORMATION" was held on 23rd February 2019 at 10:15 am in the conference room of the college (NCSC) by Mr. Parijat Gupta. Mr. Gupta started the session by asking about the assignment given in the earlier session. He also asked what was going on in the minds of students after doing assignment. Few of the students shared their experience regarding the assignment and what was going on in their minds after completing it. The points covered by him under this session are below:

v  Laughing is the best medicine
Mr. Gupta started with the topic laughing is the best medicine. He told that if you lose the power to laugh, you lose the power to think. He also told that now a days people are too busy in their life and they don’t even have time to laugh. In some cases they have to join laughing clubs for laughter. His words raised some questions in our mind regarding the absence of laughter from our life? It is strange that people have to join such clubs to make themselves laugh.

v  Empathy Walk
It is all about how leader can manage people. As they are leaders they have to meet new people every day. Empathy walk means how much you are able to understand person in front of you whom you have never met before. Then Mr. Gupta showed us one video clip named Dyna Cunningham (part 1) in which Diana Cunningham is a lawyer by profession. In that video she told that we can’t change legal system but we can change people’s mind and it is the power of empathy walk.

v  Co-Sensing
Under this point Mr. Gupta made us understand that Co-Sensing means to make the system sense and to see itself. He also told that we have to go to the edge of system to understand the entire situation. He gave the examples of Mother Teresa and Princess Diana who were different kinds of change leaders for society. They helped people who were suffering from leprosy and HIV Aids.
One quote by Johann Wolfgang V. Grethe, summarises what Mr. Gupta explained us.
            “Every object, well contemplated, opens up a new organ of perception within us.”

After that there was small refreshment break for 10 minutes. Then our next session began with meditation.

v  Social Field
It is a structure of relationship among individual, group, organization and system that gives rise to collective behavior. Here we have seen another video clip. It was a small part of movie named The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000). In which coach was motivating him to achieve his goal before going to perform on field. Mr. Gupta told us to relate this video with social field.

v  Levels of Conversation
·         Types of Team Meeting
1.      Polite way
2.      Debate form
3.      Dialogue form
·         Field pattern
·         4 fields of conversation
Any conversation happens in fields. Under Conversation phase, he further explained four specific fields as follows:
1.      Downloading or Talking Nice
In this field we speak what other wants to hear. We want to play safe with them. Here, reality is something else and people say what others like to hear. For example in interview candidates behavior is not natural he behaves artificially to impress interviewee.
2.      Debate or talking Tough
Here, people try to put their point of view. Nobody is trying to lose their point of view. Thus conversation can’t move toward a decision making.
3.      Dialogue or Reflective Tough
Here person start speaking by seeing himself as whole. Then he asks question why other’s point of view is better than his view point? Then he tries to look his view point from other’s angel. When he realized that his view pint is not effective then only he can shift his view point.
4.      Collective creativity
Here all individual collectively see that what is emerging from all view points.

After that there was lunch break for an hour. After break the session was continued at 2:20 pm. Mr. Gupta introduced Mr. Aakash Thakur, the head HR with AARTI Industries Ltd..

·         Mr. Thakur told that person should always clear about his integrity, character, how to manage resources and decision making ability.
·         He also makes us understand that how professional knowledge and competencies are required to be different from other competitors in market.
·         Then he gave information of LEAD concept which is used by every professional:
L: Learn
E: Engage
A: Achieve
D: Discover
·         He also gave some idea of business S Curve.

Lastly there was one exercise. In that exercise Mr. Thakur and one student from us done role play on stage. In that Mr. Thakur asked about her. She gave short introduction of her. Mr. Thakur also asked about her future plan and council her for her dilemma also. After that there was open forum discussion in which many of students have put interesting questions in that question answer session and Both Mr. Gupta & Mr. Thakur answered them satisfactorily. With   this session ended successfully at 5:15 pm.

possible. Team green was winner as they were able to collect all the items and were given
chocolates as prize.

problem. Following are ways to solve problem:-

 Optimism

PREPARED BY: - JOSHI GANESH
SUBMITTED TO :- PRO. KANU RAVAL

On 2nd February, 2019, I have visited the SAL COLLEGE in Ahmadabad for a tournament of taekwondo. I got the silver medal in the tournament. There were many students have participated in the tournament, my category was under 62-63. In my category there was only one participant, in my fight there were 2 rounds of 1 minute.

In first round my points were 5 and he got 4 points against me. In the second round he got 3 and I got only one point against him. He won the fight and got gold medal and I got silver medal.

This was the best experience for me because I didn’t practice for the tournament and took participation; because of lack of practice I got silver otherwise I would have won gold. Next year I’ll do more practice for the tournament and try my best in next year.

CO-CREATE TRANSFORMATION [Session 3]


By: Mr. Parijat Gupta
Place: Narmada College of Management
Date: 9 February, 2019


 

Introduction:
The third session of “CO-CREATE TRANSFORMATION" was held on 9th February 2019 at 10:10 am in the conference room of the college (NCM) by Mr. Parijat Gupta. Students strength in the 3rd session was a bit less than the 2nd session. Mr. Gupta had started the session by askingabout the assignment given in the earlier session and also asked what was going on in the minds of students before starting the session. Few of the students shared their expectations regarding the session and what was going on in their minds.

Leading from the emerging future:
Mr. Gupta started with the topic leading from the emerging future. He then told students to take out the handouts that he provided in the earlier session. One by one he requested students to stand up and read one para. He then explained the following topics covered under the handouts:
·         What is a Hub ?
1.      Introduction
2.      Size and location
3.      How often to meet
4.      Hosting a hub
5.      Form a hosting team
6.      Formulate an intention for the hub and invitation for community
7.      Organize a physical space to meet
·         High level planning:
1.      Co-initiating phase
2.      Co- sensing phase
3.      Presencing phase
4.      Crystallizing phase
5.      Prototyping phase
6.     Co-evolving phase

Under Co-initiating phase, he further explained three specific actions as follows:
·         Return to your own intentions that you formulated earlier. And he also made students to write their intention which was different than what was written in the assignment given during earlier session.
·         Ask yourself who are those people with whom you are going to connect and make the intention happen. After that he made everyone write 2 or 3 names of those with whom that intention was to be implemented .

·         And the last action was to listen, listen, listen. The three listen was purposefully written with a specific reason for each and was explained very well by Mr. Gupta.

1.      Listen; listening to your intention or to what life calls you to do (listen to oneself)
2.      Listen; listening to your core partners in the field (listen to others)
3.      Listen; listening to what you are called to do new (listening to what emerges)

After that Mr. Gupta made everyone write a saying by Martin Buber as:
“She listen to what is emerging from herself to the course of being in the world, not in order to be supported by it, but in order to bring it to reality as it desires”.
Mr. Gupta also insisted on “Pay attention to your attention" and through this explained the above saying.

Levels of listening:
·         Downloading (it is a listening based on the habits of past i.e., closed mind)

·         Factual listening (it is type of listening based on open mind i.e., listening by suspending the old judgements & seeing through fresh eyes)

·         Empathic listening (listening with open heart i.e.,listening through which you can empathize and redirect)

·         Generative listening (listening with open will i.e., listening in a way that you can let go off the past and let come the emerging future)

After explaining thetype of listening Mr. Gupta showed a video of an orchestra which was an example of what he explained above.

Lastly everyone had to do an exercise. In that exercise coaching circles were formed. A coaching circle was a group which consisted of 6 members. 4 such coaching circles were formed. After the circles were formed Mr. Gupta insisted everyone to sit in the respective coaching circles. He explained the whole exercise regarding what all tasks the coaching circle members had to do. Every circle had to select one case giver and one time keeper. And the remaining 4 members were considered as the coaches.

The tasks of each of them were as follows:
Case giver : He/she had to share their personal aspiration and leadership challenge which has to be current, concrete, important and the case giver was the key player.

Coaches : Coaches had to listen to the challenge of the case giver very deeply without trying to fix the problem. Coaches had to listen to the case giver and along with it they also had to stay quite and attend to the images, feelings, metaphors, and gestures that the challenge evoked.
Time keeper : One of the member from the group had to manage the time.

Coaching circles were sent to different classrooms for the exercise to be conducted by each. One hour was given to each circle. After one hour everyone gathered in the conference room again and sat in their own circle. One by one every circle started sharing their experience and also the things they could generate from that exercise. Sharings from the circles were very helpful. At the last handouts of the exercise which had to be done during the 15 days period was distributed to all and with this the session ended at 5:20 pm successfully.
