Guidance and Counselling for Engineers to become great Engineering Managers
Since 2015, we are providing complete guidance to young engineers to aim for higher level / top management positions in the engineering industry. We achieve that with a mix of academic guidance, business information, a lot of practical inputs about current issues, critical thinking and even personality development and soft skills relevant to your official position / requirements.
Engineers make complex things simple and in the process lose their own valuation, but many other professions make simple things complex and increase their own standing!
Our Training: We have well-defined training programs, on a 1-on-1 basis, which are low priced, and which take into consideration that all have different skill sets and different abilities, and of course, different problems/ issues. Every one has a different goal, but needs inputs to achieve those goals in any case. One of our dream projects is also to enable people from rural areas to become Gramprueners ( under the BYST platform) in manufacturing low cost building materials locally. Do you want to join hands ?
Kindly have a look at the recommendations from many of my students and office colleagues, specially those reporting to me, [ whom I have mentored to take up higher responsibilities ] at https://www.linkedin.com/in/dinesh-bandiwadekar-30a5107/ and on the home page of www.PersonaAcademy.in
Under the Persona Academy banner, we have trained over 1000 candidates in personality development, soft skills, writing & presentation skills and advanced spoken English. Dinesh is also a practicing/ registered mentor on BYST India (CII sponsored, honorary), and SallyPortal -The Mentoring portal of Rice University Houston, and an India based well wisher of the GLCM- The Global Leaders in Construction Management of the Colombia University in the City of New York.
