We Develop Human Capital "Not to unlearn what you have learned is the most necessary kind of learning" said Antisthenes. Our passion at 'The Enablers' is to develop people. Developing human resources is more important to 'The Enablers' than getting clients. We want to make sure that people take way something valuable and useful for their lives. In our workshops, we create an environment which is conducive to learning. We encourage participants to: • Un-learn what is obsolete. • Learn what is contemporary to become futuristic. • Un-learn and re-learn, un-learn and re-learn again! When people follow these three steps, the miracle process begins - the process of excelling. With this mission, 'The Enablers' was established in January 2004 by Prof. Vivek Hattangadi. ‘The Enablers’ unlock the concealed potential in people and leverage their latent talent so they emerge as winners. In our learning sessions, the participants learn the way an excellent surgeon learns - practicing what has been learned through purposeful activities rather than merely from instructions. Our sessions are pragmatic; learning’s are doable. We have a large clientele even outside India.

Management decision

Story of Management Decision!!!
Once PVNR (PV Narasimha Rao), L.K. Advani and Laloo Prasad Yadav were traveling in an Auto Rickshaw. They met with an accident and all three of them die. Yama was waiting for this moment at the doorstep of death.He asks PVNR and Advani to go to heaven. But, for Laloo, Yama had already decided that he should be sent to hell. Laloo is not at all happy with this decision.

He asks Yama as to why this discrimination is being made. All the three of them had served the public. Similarly, all took bribes; all misused public positions, etc. Then why the differential treatment?

He felt that there should be a formal objective evaluation before a decision is made; and should not be just based on opinion or preconceived notions.

Yama agrees to this and asks all the three of them to appear for an English test.

1. PVNR is asked to spell "INDIA" and he does it correctly.
2. Advani is asked to spell "ENGLAND" and he too passes.
3. It is Laloo's turn and he is asked to spell "CZECHOSLOVAKIA".

Laloo protests that he doesn't know English. He says this is not fair and that he was given a tough question and thus forced to fail with false intent.

Yama then agrees to conduct a written test in Hindi (to give another chance assuming that Laloo should at least feel that Hindi would provide an equal platform for all three).

1.PVNR is asked to write "KUTTA BOLA BHOW BHOW". He writes it easily and passes.
2.Advani is asked to write "BILLY BOLI MYAUN MYAUN". He too passes. 3.Laloo is asked to write "BANDAR BOLA GRRRRRR....." Tough one. He fails again.

Laloo is extremely unhappy. Having been a student of history (which the other two weren't), he now requested for all the 3 to be subjected to a test in history.

Yama says OK but this would be the last chance and that he would not take any more tests.

1PVNR is asked: "When did India get Independence?” He replied "1947" and passed.
2.Advani is asked, "How many people died during the independence struggle?" He gets nervous. Yama asked him to choose from 3 options: 100,000 or 200,000 or 300, 000. Advani catches it and says 200,000 and passes.
3.It's Laloo's turn now. Yama asks him to give the names and addresses of each of the 200,000 people who died in the independence struggle. Laloo accepts defeat and agrees to go to HELL.

This story is a a reflection on many management decisions.

Moral of the story: If your management has decided to screw you, there is no escape.
