Take the guesswork out of employee training
Is training providing the right solutions for your problems?
- Is training bringing the results you want?
- Is it cost effective?
- Does it meet your needs?
With Dialog Services, the answer is YES to these questions. (Read More…)
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.

I visited an Acupuncture clinic recently, and after the 3rd visit (I was advised a minimum of 12 sessions), I noticed a redness on my left calf in the evening- and a soreness. The following day, it had swollen up and was painful. I was to travel for 3-4 days, and didn’t think it was […]
One of the traits I notice in myself is that I am quick to find faults in others, and slow to recognize their gifts and strengths. I wonder if this is a defensive mechanism for me to feel safe- cocooned in the false belief that I am better than others. It’s exhilarating to think I’m […]
We met these family friends after a long time. The wife taught the nursery class in a school. As we chit-chatted, I was ‘Darn, I don’t have much in common with her. What will we talk about?’ The accompanying feeling was that of superiority-which is a bit embarrassing for me now to admit. For after […]
Yesterday was the birthday of a person I am in awe of. She is a colleague, one can say, as she is in the same profession; but someone who I regard as being ‘ahead of’ me~ in terms of capability and perhaps in knowing herself. I met her at a retreat where she was my […]
Centering Yourself, and just being Impeccably Polite There is a wonderful story about Mandela, which shows how even in circumstances where even though seemingly powerless- he still put his opponent on the defensive. All he did was to be so scrupulously polite, that there was no option but to reciprocate with politeness. The prisoners in […]
Define your own rules of the game (what is acceptable what is not) Recently I was with a client who took a lot of my time. They were pleasant enough, but got very easily distracted into side conversations which were nothing to do with the topic or problem at hand. It was a family business, […]
To form a successful relation with others, we need to relate with our own negative qualities I had been feeling guilty about not spending enough time with some houseguests who were staying for the weekend. Being in their seventies, the couple was quite happy to chat with my mother who had also come over to […]
Many businessmen do good quality work but are hesitant or squeamish about selling their goods or services. I have met several who say ‘I’m not good at it’ or ‘its demeaning to make business calls’. But the truth is that selling like any other work requires planning, persuading and perseverance. Recently I was at a […]
A lot of the times we end up saying or doing something we regret later. One aspect of Emotional Intelligence is self-regulation- or impulse control, or simply self-control. Recently I was discussing this subject with Prof Sudhir Jain, Director of the new IIT at Gandhinagar, who is a rare combination of an academic with international […]
What is assertive behaviour? Assertiveness is the middle ground between aggression and passivity. It is about reasonable behaviour and finding solutions that suit both sides. Assertiveness means: Acknowledging your own feelings to yourself (“My boss gives me bits and pieces of tasks without total responsibility of the entire project, and I am feeling restless and unfulfilled”); Understanding […]
Communication at the workplace (particularly with the boss) is as important as lubricant for our car engine. Without it our career will sputter and stall, and work life will be full of breakdowns and headaches. In quiz, you saw a few situations, which if not clarified, have the potential to worsen our irritation with time. […]
