The MIT School of Maritime Engineering, better known as MANET, saw a lot of learning and excitement this weekend. The Life Workshop, spearheaded by Founder and trainer, Juuhi Raai, was conducted at MANET on 24th and 25th of August, 2018. The students were taken through various processes where they learnt how to face their fears and take on life with zeal and renewed energy.
These processes, or WOOs (Window of opportunity), gave the students insight into their relationship with themselves, family, career and everything else. By following the simple mantra of “The way you do one thing is the way you do everything”, Ms. Rai taught them how to participate in activities and in life in general. Not only did they learn how to face their fears, but also how to channelize their anger in the right direction.
Like PM Modi recently said in his address at IIT Mumbai- “Seven lakh engineers graduate every year, but only with degrees and not skills. It’s important that they are taught life skills along with subjects.” With workshops like these, students get a chance to address a lot of mental barriers and drop their baggage. This is especially beneficial to boost their confidence and equip them with the right tools to go out and live the best possible life they can.
The Life Workshop has trained over 10,000 students across India in the last three years and recently conducted training for cops in Mumbai. They also have a separate workshop dedicated to Women alone, called Shhhroes- The Silent Heroes. Their aim is to transform as many lives as possible and make a difference in people’s lives through their training.
The company is managed and run by three women – Juuhi Raai, who is the Founder and The Chief Motivation Office, Sapna Palicha, who is the Business Development Officer and Head and Amrita Saraf Rai, who is the Social Media Ninja and Head.
They understand that learning how to be happy and self sufficient is the need of the hour. Through the training, they try to achieve just that- teaching people how to tap into the source of power and happiness within themselves. The tagline of the company is – “Be the Best You” and they truly help you be that.
