This workshop is brought to you by SOME the school of meaningful experiences.
Plunnge is a workshop for those who wake up every morning thinking that they rather do something else than what they are doing but for some reason or the other, cant. Every day, deep inside, they feel unfulfilled and have a burning desire to follow their passion. Every day, they read about others who have taken the plunnge to follow their passion and wish that they too, could do the same.
In this workshop, Rakesh will help the participants navigate through the various challenges we all face in this situation, like how does one figure out their passions, manage the unknowns that lie ahead in this path, deal with societal pressures, failures, self-doubt and finally, how can one take a Plunnge and fulfill their passions and dreams.
We invite you to join Rakesh at MyBoTree on May 10th, from 4 pm to 8 pm and sincerely hope that this workshop helps you in your own plunnge.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is most ideal for (but not limited to) working professionals, young adults in a higher education institution, women who have taken a break, middle-level managers trying to change their orbits of career, and senior-level managers who wish to re-invent themselves in a new avatar.
About Rakesh Godhwani
After taking the Plunnge from the corporate world in 2008 to follow my passion, the thing which has grown is my collection of pens and notepads, my hunger to read and learn, my love to teach and write, my time with my family and friends and most important my happiness and faith. Everything else has decreased like my bank balance, weight, stress, etc.
I currently teach full credit courses on Communication for Leaders and Business Communication at the PGP and EEP programs of IIM Bangalore, coach promising startups and senior managers in the industry, give seminars and talks in corporate events and colleges, read a story to my kids every night before they sleep, bicycle my way to work and save the environment in my own way, do yoga, write, earn a fraction of what I used to, but live a million times better.
I have authored 4 books so far. My first book Plunnge was published in July 2011. My second book Seek: finding your true calling was published by RandomHouse India in 2013. I announced my 3rd book in November 2014. It is on a topic that I teach and research - Persuasive Communication and Charismatic Leadership. The name of the book is What to Say and When to Shut Up! and has been published by Penguin Random House. My latest book "Public Speaking Kaleidoscope" is my first serious attempt at academic writing and is the literature review chapter of my doctoral thesis.
