{ wEmpower-W was provided an opportunity to obtain her insights on need for Women Centric Behavioral Training }

Team wEmpower-W: What is your personal take on – ‘Is there any need of women centric programs’? Why do we need women- oriented programs?
Jaswinder: I understand your question. I personally feel that at the higher hierarchy, women are already quite empowered. I think we need to start at the grassroots level. We should start at lower rungs of the ladder and then continuously empower them vertically up.

Team wEmpower-W: What has been your experience over 2 decades , did you see any gender discrimination for getting approvals for women centric workshops ?
Jaswinder: We do see a lot of women at leadership levels and they are great achievers. The progress is on and we must have this equality. The “glass ceiling” needs to be broken to bring in equality to get more women on board. Be it men or women, any one can achieve what they want to if they have a process laid out.

Team wEmpower-W: Have you done any women- oriented workshop?
Jaswinder: Yes I have. I normally start with Self-awareness that gives them a peep within. Empowering them with understanding the science behind Communications help them handle behavioral issues at workplace and at home. NLP when there is yet gender ratio gap, helps working women a lot to understand and create a life that you want to.

Team wEmpower-W: When we know that gender is a gender, there is male gender and the women gender, and the trainings are satirized. Do we require women oriented training?
Jaswinder: Do you think we should have a readiness program? Every women has to go through a physical change, the maternity leave, getting back after 9 months gap. When they get back, there is an evident appraisal gap. Why don’t the HR or the line managers provide a readiness program?

Team wEmpower-W: A returnee employee has been sitting idle away from work for 9 months What do you think can be changed in 2 days of training or readiness programs?
Jaswinder: After a 2 days program the participants might get motivated but it dies down after a while. So a continuous nudge from the coach is needed so that they are in touch with their inner-self and move ahead in life.There is an impact but it has to be a continuous training. My workshops are followed by one-on-one sessions. While some needed 6-8 sessions, some took 12 sessions. Each case is different as each client’s environment at home and work is different. Though there is one common concern of getting back to work, there are related different issues as well because of difference in the mental make up. I feel any training should be a continued and regular one.

Here, I would ask back a question! When a lady is on maternity leave, do you think she can work from home? A readiness program externally in lieu with what she is trying to gain from corporate break, definitely will surely strengthen their ability to secure a good job and secure a deserved promotion and make a distinctive impression that will impact their future.

Team wEmpower-W: As an independent SME , did you face any challenges getting validation?
Jaswinder: It does take time to be visible in the training sphere on your own.

Team wEmpower-W: When we are a part of an environment, there is a structure, a hierarchy, each hierarchy has a protocol to get this change, wherein we are doing a program but the feedback is not doing much to change the diversity ratio. Why do you think the companies are not taking initiatives? Is it because of a thought that women have shorter carrier paths?
Jaswinder: Yeah. Your question has triggered a thought in my mind. Why not involve men in the women oriented programs? Lets take their view on what do they think about it, rather than just trying to empower women. Lets also try to put this in the minds of Men leaders - why is this disparity? How can we improve the ratio?

Team wEmpower-W: Which training methodology do you prefer ? As you independent SME entity or are you associated with any company?
Jaswinder: I do it on my own and also team up with others too. But then , I am a firm believer that teaming up trainers SME like me under one roof is very powerful.wEmpower-W,Communication & Training Pvt Ltd is definetly a positive new- age initiative
