It is always good to meet career oriented people who believe in doing things right. SOIL – School Of Inspired Learning organised a bloggers meet recently at their Gurgaon centre and I was invited too. I was pretty intrigued about the institute after reading about them on their website.
SOIL aims to build competent and compassionate professionals through their innovative teaching techniques based on their 5 pillar philosophy. The five pillars which happen to be names of 5 different floors that SOIL has are Mindfulness, Compassion, Sustainability, Ethics and Diversity. And all these qualities are imbibed in the students through their carefully designed curriculum which has an equal balance of theoretical and practical learning.
SOIL is lead by Mr. Anil Sachdev, who we had a pleasure to meet and interact with and his candid introduction about SOIL, its ideologies, its journey and the challenges it is facing currently was impressive. A management consultant and an industry veteran, Anil comes with a vast experience with him in building leaders and has trained and consulted with some of the biggest organisations and people in the country.
Post our interaction with Mr. Sachdev, we were taken for a lunch where SOIL’s staff told us more about the institute and its structure and took our questions. All the bloggers were given an extensive tour of the institute and had a chance to interact with the students of their current batches and people working there. One thing that we were constantly told by everyone at SOIL was, more than anything else SOIL believes in developing a strong character of a person as the work ethic of a person is an extension of his character.
SOIL has an intensive admission process and similarly an intensive environment when it comes to studies. You can know more about them on their website – http://www.soilindia.net
Would like to thank SOIL team for hosting a wonderful meet.
