Rashmi Datt is the founder and Director of Dialog Services, with over two decades of rich industry experience in the domains of Organisational Development, learning and development, content management and instructional design.
She set up Dialog Services 18 years ago, and has facilitated a movement of participants ‘taking charge of their development’ as they build their EQ, in over 50 Organisations in the Corporate, Government and Not for Profit sectors. Her workshops convey the urgency of Gandhiji’s credo ‘Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever’.
Members take away not just insights in the way we relate, interact, deal with difficult situations, conflict, or utilize resources, but concrete skills and practical steps, which they can implement in their lives from day-one.
