HSS-1903: PERSONALITY GROWTH LAB (1st Year)
Objective: This is an extra-syllabic component of the MBA programme, central to the
individual pursuing this course for a future managerial position in the corporate world.
This involves identification and re-identification of a self in both space and time making
allowances for the situational dynamics under the pressure of formal and structural
changes in society and Government from time to time: For a static human condition is
experientially illogical. Hence, personality of an individual is not a mask but an
expressive face that changes contours and eye-focus, redefining the individual’s vision
of reality. This flexibility of response to his space time is reflected in the individuals’
choice of words, gestures, expressions and particularly in the rhythm of his speech,
action or/and writing, also in his inter personal relationship. Therefore the following
aspects are seminal to a personality, which believes in goal-setting and accomplishment
without any interference from his private and personal space-time.:

Self Analysis, Actions and Intentions, Thoughts and Feelings, Perceptions and
Memories, Location, Attitude and stane

consciousness:

Motivation, Decision Making Skill, Leadership Skill, Crisis Management Skills, Team

The ‘no-subject’ or ‘no-ownership’ view of the self, Developing the all-inclusive self
(Particularly in the corporate world), Emotional Equilibrium, Empathetic
Communication, Debating skills, Group Decision.
The Mythic pattern of Consciousness:
• Departure from self (Cartesian ego) to goal-realization or target achievement
• Fulfillment – Objectives, Corporate or otherwise, and
• Return to Self
• Identifying the self with the other and redefining personality-Role Playing
To achieve the above stated objectives the Personality Development Component will be spread
over two years. In the first year the following shall be emphasized:
• Types of personalities-Choleric, Phlegmatic Balanced
• Body language and verbal expressions-Finding Synchronicity
• Proper vocabulary and a workable knowledge of reality-local and universal
