Director, IIM-Vizag, Prof. M Chandrasekhar, quoted Ameeta Chatterjee, member of the board of governors of the Institute, from her book – “Joyful Living: Reflections of a Happy Soul” to say that ‘the most important qualities one needs to possess are the 4T’S – truthfulness, thoughtfulness, togetherness, and tenderness.’

“The amalgamation of these qualities will help any individual perform well in the organisational context,” added Prof Chandrasekhar. He asked the participants to apply the knowledge gained from the training to the challenges at the workplace.
