Guest Lecture by Mr. Ramesh Mitragotri

"Sow a thought and you reap an act. Sow an act and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny."
With this inspirational quote, Mr. Ramesh Mitragotri – An alumnus of 1986 batch- kick started the day with a fresh perspective.
Mr. Ramesh Mitragotri graced students with his presence at the SIMSREE campus, on the 25th of July at 9:30 am to deliver a guest lecture to the junior batch.
Mr. Mitragotri is the CHRO at Aditya Birla - Chemical division and has previously worked in Aditya Birla Retail.

Mr. Mitragotri emphasized on the importance of one's character, values and morals over their knowledge and skills. Sir explained to the batch how the companies hire aspirants with good character and then train the personnel in the skills required. Sir spoke about the important traits of a leader and what attributes play an important role in making a good leader.
Mr. Mitragotri also advised batch to not only work on knowledge and skill development but also on developing one's character, beliefs and values. Sir explained the importance of character building with an example of an iceberg. Only 10 % of the iceberg is visible while 90% of the iceberg is under the sea and not visible easily. Similarly only 10% of our attributes are visible easily which include our behavior, knowledge etc. but the 90% which includes our temperament , our attitude, our values and our character is not easily visible but these are the attributes of a good leader and are sought after by every organization.
With this motivational lecture, the students were animated to start another exciting day in their induction week.
