Dr Jayati Roy who recently joined HELP University as Professor in the Faculty of Education and Languages, brings with her a wealth of experience, not just from academia but also from the corporate and banking sectors. As a Master Trainer who is an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) practitioner, she has also achieved an enviable track record for her work in training multinational companies, banks, universities, research organizations and law firms, over the past twenty years.
Recently, Dr. Roy (known to many as Dr. Jaay) conducted a workshop on motivation for faculty members and staff of HELP University including Heads of Departments, Senior Lecturers and sales staff. She used a variety of methods in her training and these ranged from storytelling, experiential learning, using metaphors as a means of peeking into personal values to watching a movie clip (which was in Chinese) to explore the meaning of motivation. She successfully kept her audience glued to their seats with music in the air and a talk that was peppered with humour as well as meaningful activities that were used to engage, enthrall and enhance her participants’ interest in personal development.
As a trained Master Practitioner in hypnotherapy, Dr. Roy had honed her skills to help individuals discover their subconscious mind and overcome their fears to change for the better. An anecdote of her fishing trip to Korea illustrated an NLP pre-supposition that ‘if we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always got’ and that CHANGE – is the key to progress. This also endorsed the fact that all learning is unconscious – one of the fundamental concepts in NLP.
Many of those who attended, left feeling intrigued by her insights into character profiling and values elicitation and hoped for more sessions like this, where fun and hands on activities achieved the outcomes that are so much at the heart of learning.
