“This workshop has extracted my inner capabilities and strength”
Reflections about the workshop:

“I feel it is the best workshop to develop leadership qualities in administrators. It is very useful to become a visionary leader.”- Mohd. Asgar, Chanigound  
“It helps to understand actual meaning of life. This workshop helps to remove our weaknesses, negativity, and bad habits. This workshop teaches to care for others in personal and professional relationships.”- Tsering Yangdol, Leh    
“This workshop on Self-leadership Development course is such an excellent course, I haven’t seen and done in my 35 years of service as a Government employee. I have taken lots of trainings and done lots of workshops; but this is the only one so effective, innovative, and excellent. It’s because both the facilitators are efficient, have good command on language and their way of presentation is very effective. It was very heart touching, which led us to weep and laugh. Such training is very very useful for not only principals but also to other social workers/leaders in every field.”- Tsering Dorjai, Diskit, Nubra
“The whole workshop was very interesting and heart touching. My complete emotional and mental self got involved in the workshop. This workshop has extracted my inner capabilities and strength. Besides that, I got a big moral support. This very workshop has cleared my mission and vision of life. Now I can see the world in a more beautiful way. Now my will-power and commitment have become stronger.”- Sonam Wangchuk, Bogdang, Nubra
‘Though I have attended many workshops, this workshop is very special and different. We learned so many things that can change our life style. We have so many paradigms that without this training we are not able to understand who we are and why we are here in this world. About leadership, I found it very touching. It is not my position but in my mindset that counts.
This workshop will change us. We will try to be good human beings with values. We will try to impart all these qualities which we learned here with our staff and students. When I have all these qualities which I learnt, my family life will change. I learnt that everything happening in my life is my responsibility. So now I will not blame others.”- Delhen Angmo, Leh

Reflections about usefulness of the workshop:

“When I attended the workshop on 1st day, I thought it will be a routine workshop; but it was beyond my expectations; excellent one. It was a game changer and eye opener for my life. This workshop should be introduced to Politicians/'Netas' and all the HODs, so that we can see change in the entire country.”- Kangchuk Angmo, Leh
“The workshop was so useful. This was the method for a raw person to become a perfect parent, teacher and leader.”- Tsering Wangyal, Bartoo-Sankoo, Kargil
“This workshop has taught us how to lead a peaceful life; how we can share our happiness with others.”- Deldan Angmo, Leh

Ibrahim, Tambis, Kargil
