I am having an exciting experience to teach Organizational Behaviour and Leadership course at CityU. I hold PhD (Organizational/ Industrial Psychology), MA (Psychology), and MBA (Human Resource Management). I have over 12 years of experience in research, teaching and training wherein I undertook graduate and post-graduate programs at College, University level, and executive education level. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I gave consultancy services to few corporates and academic institutions. As part of my industry experience, I worked in the Training and Development of Administrative Human Resources at a premier Administrative Training Institute wherein I designed and coordinated management/ executive development programs for Government functionaries and corporate executives. I hold CPHR in good standing with Chartered Professionals in Human Resources, British Columbia and Yukon, and SHRM-SCP (Senior Certified Professional) with Society for Human Resource Management, USA designations. I am a certified Mental Health Trainer (SIU, Sweden) and Registered Clinical Counsellor with BCACC (BC Association of Clinical Counsellors). My teaching and research interests are in the areas of industrial/organizational psychology, human resource management, training and development, and mental health.
My teaching philosophy focuses on self-directed experiential learning by developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills amongst the course participants which leads to practice-based learning. To make this course meaningful and relevant I follow HBS model in the classroom by discussing best OB practices in the industry through real-life case studies. Students get the opportunity to delve deeper into critically analyzing these best practices and develop skills to offer constructive improvements through the application of conceptual and firm specific skills in the field of organizational behaviour and leadership.
Some fun facts about me are I love mindfulness, exercising, travelling, interacting with people from different backgrounds, and learn about the historical significance of diverse cultures and heritage monuments.
