Skill development — professional or personal is a significant factor that needs to be developed. When clients ask why sports or yoga or art, or music are important and how it helps? I say they have to act to see measurable differences in quantitative terms. To understand this, one needs to understand the subtle intricacies and the short-term and long-term benefits. It is important to use both the right brain and the left brain. So apart from taking educational degrees (which is definitely important), and professional certifications, developing life skills is the key to growth and fulfillment. If corporates are able to focus on the development of life skills of employees it boosts productivity, and effectiveness and improves decision-making and risk-taking ability. People get clarity. My take — one needs to enroll in some form or other of art or music, one sport, yoga, or meditation.
