Approached by cross-industry corporate executives and professional colleges to help them with specific problems related to their work environments and personalities, Ratan has trained students of MBA and Professional Colleges as well as managing directors, doctors, architects, engineers, journalists, hotel & travel-industry professionals, music directors, media analysts, RJs, event organisers, aerobic instructors, call-centre executives, financial consultants and IT professionals from companies like Microsoft Research, Cyber India Online Ltd., McAfee, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, Google, IBM, Dell, Accenture, BT, Philips Software, I-flex Solutions, Global Exchange Services, ICICI OneSource, Oracle, Socrates Software India, ING Vysya, ACS and Taj Hotels to name just a few.
Enriched with time and experience, Ratan has evolved as a ‘pathfinder’. A believer in Originality, he has developed his own unique training technique by blending theatre and personality development into a highly-effective programme – a channel that helps participants chart their own paths through life.
The Pathfinder programme is theatre-based: theatre being an art form, the proceedings are built on the group dynamics.
The programme is vibrant, drawing from the participants themselves. All of Ratan’s sessions are inter-linked, yet the focus could be on any area specified by you. His sessions are highly entertaining and fun. They follow a hands-on approach and are practical in nature, supported by several exercises on each of the following topics:
- Breaking inhibitions: getting people to be comfortable with themselves and with each other
- Using the body and body language: understanding how one projects feelings reading people’s behavior and actions
