The resource person for the session was Mr. Shirish P. Sebastian – International Educator and Wellness Coach. He was the rockstar of the workshop, grabbing everyone with his thoughts and ideologies. He is infused to accept change from the mind and heart and then only the transformation can be seen. He connected our thoughts to destiny, so well that concluded that thoughts are the inherent factor for our destiny. Our mind is just like a barren land that reaps what we sow. He shared a wonderful affirmation to be made by all ‘Every day in every way, I am getting better & better!’ which acts as the biggest motivator. He also spoke about the different leadership styles and focussed more on Principals’ being on the Hot seat always in any educational organization.
The driving force behind the workshop was Mr. Sukhen Waghmare, an edupreneur. He endorses a one-stop solution for the school's needs when it comes to the students. We also grasped the importance of quality books being incorporated. And when it comes to quality S Chand is one of the brand names to be thought of.

The principals present for the workshop did take the session to a next level by sharing their experiences and thoughts. The learnings culminated as such: The commitment of faculty and academics is needed to foster transformation in learning and education for sustainability.
