4IR.org SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE SKILLS COACH
Hi, I am Dr. Sandeep Atre your 4IR.org Social Intelligence Skills Coach. I am passionate about helping people understand themselves holistically, connect to each other in meaningful ways, and unleash their potential as individuals and teams.
My life-story has been about combining one’s passion with purpose, and then striving for proficiency to make it one’s profession…
The foremost credential that makes me a part of 4IR.org team is that I am the Founder of Socialigence – a venture that specializes in the development of ‘Social Intelligence’ through online-courses and workshops. I am also author of two books – ‘Understanding Emotions Logically’ and ‘Observing Nonverbal Behavior’.
Over the past 15 years, I have customized the concepts of Social Intelligence and interpersonal communication to coach people from various sections of society.
I have trained professionals of more than 30 companies like CSC, Cummins, Bridgestone, Piramal and Maruti Suzuki for improving their work effectiveness. I have trained teachers and students of more than 20 institutions such as the Indian Institute of Management, Indian Institute of Technology, Symbiosis, Narsee Monjee and Thapar University to develop the interpersonal aspects of their communication.
I have conducted workshops for Law-enforcement officers at Police University, Rajasthan and Police Radio Training School, Madhya Pradesh on detecting deception. Moreover, I have regularly given talks on interpersonal matters to families and individuals at social platforms like Rotary International, Lions International, Round Table, National Entrepreneurship Network and National Service Scheme.
In addition to this, I have designed and developed the communication-courses that are conducted at various centres of our group’s student-training venture. I am one of the Directors of this group and work with eight other partners and a team of more than 100 people. Interestingly, working in partnerships has helped me value and practice Social Intelligence beyond just researching and training on it.
I hold an MBA, and a PhD in Management. I have written for compendiums and journals and have also been a noted blogger. I have served on reputable editorial and advisory boards, including ‘Centre for Research in MSME & Promotion of Entrepreneurship in Women’ of Banasthali – the largest residential university for women in the world. I was also a part of Rotary GSE team to Minnesota, USA in 2013.
I have always enjoyed simplifying complex concepts and making them relatable. That got me into ‘writing poetry and composing’ from a very young age. However, my greatest pleasure comes from being with my family – my parents, wife and daughter. We all live together in Indore, Central India.
I look forward to add value to your repertoire through the concepts & practices of ‘Social Intelligence’.
