  • Academic view: Groupthink | The Financial Express
    areas of Brussels then we present opportunities to the ever eager recruiters of IS A body which may use the term state but which is actually a decentralised organisation using ideological mantras to fulfil its members need for identification As director of the Society and Organisations Centre at HEC Paris I spend much of my working life trying to help managers and leaders make sense of this disorganised world Now I think it is time that these leaders and managers realise that they play a fundamental role in society that politicians and intellectuals can no longer fill That of generating meaning locally in their everyday operations helping people to develop an identity in a concrete way Who are the people that are most acutely confronted with the difficult social realities of our time Who has the experience to handle multiple sources of identification whether that be client needs or employee diversity And who are the people trained by experience to handle different market imperatives national regulations and the demands of red tape Managers Management may have failed in not offering spaces symbols and practices that help people identify with positive values but it does offer a source of hope for tackling the threat that faces us all Modern capitalism can be a source of exclusion when firms ignore economically challenged groups and areas Yet a number of companies Carrefour and McDonald s in France being prime examples have built successful businesses by embracing consumers of all types and incomes Where I believe business schools can play a valuable role is in redefining what management actually means Managers can develop and implement the practices that will help to consolidate the fractured structure of our world Leaders need to present better role models to a much wider range of people than they do at the moment We need concrete practices and role models that are easier to identify with because they speak more of inclusivity sustainability and responsibility There can be no simple solution to the challenges we face in the aftermath of the Paris attacks and those that have followed in the UK and the US However if we are to address the issues that leave members of our societies so vulnerable to the message of those who would wish to destroy us I believe a reshaping of the way that business and other leaders conduct themselves and the organisations they manage also has a vital part to play The author is director the Society and Organisations Research Centre HEC Paris business school First Published on December 21 2015 12 19 am Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed

  • For sports, schools must embrace structured curriculum-based approach: KOOH Sports’ CEO | The Financial Express
    is to spend more time studying research indicates that kids engaged in physical activities and sports possess higher cardiovascular fitness and do better in most subjects including mathematics science and English Participation in sports enhances information processing goal direction learning flexible thinking concentration and memory Given the pressure of academic excellence on Indian kids it is imperative that schools embrace the structured curriculum based approach for sports How participation in sports affects academic scores A lot of research has been conducted to understand links between academic performance and physical fitness In Chicago a review of 14 studies ranging in size from as few as 50 participants to as many as 12 000 demonstrated that the more physically active schoolchildren are the better they do academically A review of more than 100 studies published in the Journal of Applied Physiology revealed that both aerobic and resistance training are important for maintaining brain and cognitive health Is there a scientific approach to physical education and sports At KOOH Sports we have based our curriculum on the proven long term athlete development model that clearly outlines and maps a person s age with skill progression Our approach is to ensure that physical development and skill progression takes place in sync with each other We use scientific derivations to deliver any sporting technique For example we do not introduce complex sporting techniques to a young kid because myelin which coats protects and insulates nerves enabling them to quickly conduct impulses between the brain and different parts of the body gets developed only at the age of 10 Complex skills cannot be taught prior to that age Hence from 2 7 years gross motor skills like hand eye coordination fundamental walking jumping building arm muscles and movement is taught to child at KOOH Sports After the age of 8 years other tests which are age and skill progressive are taught to kids like athletic skills which are the foundation for successful and continued sport participation What made corporates such as TCS and HDFC invest in KOOH Sports The investment was driven by their unified belief in our business idea expounded by the founding and management team coupled with the collective vision to make India a fitter healthier and sporting nation How different are KOOH Sports trainers from the physical education teachers found in schools We have realised the importance of having high quality trainers and coaches on our staff We have created a quality training team that audits checks trains and shadows our coaches Our trainers go through extensive practical and theoretical training before they are placed in the schools and academies They are also guided and trained periodically by our proficient technical directors and experts and sports luminaries Are there other similar companies operating in India There are companies offering similar solutions across the in school after school and event verticals however we have not come across any one company offering end to end solutions to cut across the value chain like we do
