23rd January, 2016 was a very special date for the staff members of Undergraduate Campus at the Institute of Technology and Science, Mohan Nagar, Ghaziabad as the college had organized an interesting Staff Development Programme for them. The theme of SDP was ‘Service Orientation and Professional Excellence’. The resource persons for the SDP were Dr. Charu Chaudhary and Prof. Gopal Krishna Dwivedi.
The SDP was jointly inaugurated by Dr. Vidya Sekhri, Director – U.G. Campus and Dr. S. Bhattacharya, Vice-Principal, U.G. Campus who in their inaugural and welcome addresses pointed out the importance of the theme of SDP and asked the participants to remain interactive throughout all sessions of SDP.

Soon after the inaugural addresses, the high energy SDP began. Dr. Charu took sessions on Service Orientation while Prof. Gopal elaborated the nuances of Professional Excellence. A variety of tools were used for the effective training and sharing the various aspects of the theme. Staff-members showed unprecedented interest in the tasks like chart preparations, sharing feedback as customer and as an official. Videos on Japanese Culture, innovative customer care and infections of anger and happiness not only attracted the participants but also generated a lot of learning out of discussions after the videos.
At the end of the SDP, the staff members shared their experiences and takeaways. Finally the SDP, packed with fun and learning concluded with the valedictory session.
