Karnataka Police Academy Staff Training Programme held at MYRA

February 7, 2019

Mysuru: MYRA School of Business, Mysuru, conducted a two-day Staff Development Training Programme for Karnataka Policy Academy (KPA) staff on Feb. 4 and 5.  Each day some 55 staff of KPA attended this training workshop which included two sessions — one on “Self-Development through Reflective Practice” by Dr. Shalini Urs, Professor and Chairperson, MYRA and another on “Decoding Personality” by Dr. Prakash Nair, Professor of Organization Behaviour and Human Resource Management, MYRA.

Self-Development through Reflective Practice: In this session, participants were made to understand the importance of and believe in self-development using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The usefulness of Reflective Practice — a powerful method in practice-based professional learning settings such as policing, where people learn from their own professional experiences, rather than from formal learning/knowledge transfer was explained through exercises. Participants were given Reflective Practice Logs (developed by College of Policing, UK) to complete their experiences.

Decoding Personality: The objective of this session was to help participants understand what personality means, how various personality attributes manifest behaviourally, and how to use this knowledge for  self-development. Besides learning the evidence-based five factor model of personality, they were provided opportunities through activities, videos and exercises, to understand the potential ways they could apply.

KPA Director Vipul Kumar, who attended the valedictory session, highlighted the importance of these programmes.
