Know SWOT! And know your SWOT!
SWOT, may be a very commonly used term, yet for the students it is an alien sound, but not anymore!
It was a detailed presentation on SWOT analysis on day to day operations by Sanchaiyta at the life skills session @ VIDYA, Mali Foundation, Bangalore. Each participant shared their strengths and weakness to the audience after much thought.
The focal part of the session is that the students happily mentioned that they recall the topics, points discussed in the session later in the day and try to imbibe them and apply the knowledge at the appropriate moments!
