Through life skills workshops, one can develop decision-making skills, choose behaviours that promote group cooperation and collaboration, gain confidence in both speaking skills and accountable behavior, and deal effectively with day-to-day challenges in life. Through such sessions, students can develop and be moulded into professionals who can build their ability to lead by example and learn the actual meaning of time and people management. Effective coaching expands the range of agility and adaptability to various tasks and improves the work-life balance of trained individuals.
With the goal of instilling adaptive and positive behavioural skills that will enable students to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life they face on a daily basis, the Asian School of Business organises workshops under LIFE SKILLS @ ASB.
In continuation with the said goal, a session of LIFE SKILLS on yoga and zumba was organised on January 9th, 2023; 2:30 p.m. onwards at the Sports Arena.
