Ms. Mukta Mahajani,Author of Best Seller - "Let’s Talk" speaks on “Negotiation and Communication at Workplace”

For MBA graduates negotiation is a constant part of life, it is a skill which is tested in daily events of business. It was a delight for the MBA students of IITK to have Ms. Mukta Mahajani for a seminar. She has authored a new book – ‘Let’s Talk’ which talks about Negotiation and Communication at workplace. She is an accomplished lawyer, a professional consultant, a writer and a recognized speaker.
She started the talk by explaining what is Negotiation, and the significance of these skills in today’s business setting. She explicated this through multiple real workplace scenarios including formal meetings, informal gathering etc. She highlighted the most common mistakes people make while handling uncommon issues and gave valuable suggestions to overcome them. She also talked about cases of conflict situations and offered insightful and practical suggestions to deal with those real life situations.

Ms. Mahajani suggested various negotiation techniques and sub techniques to successfully deal with complex situations. Some of them were as follows: Separate people from issues, i.e. Focus on project issues and prevalent logic to help resolve deadlocks instead of on personal successes and qualifications or prior achievements for mere one-upmanship. Another one was to find project/work parameters and goals that everyone can agree on. Not being upset about or defensive about ideas not being accepted.
Some of the methods of strengthening communication skills were also suggested like considering the written word, or putting an email esp. when the boss is not around. Another was the Value of a mentor or friend at workplace whom you approach when in trouble.
The session was highly interactive with questions pouring in from the students. Overall it was an enlightening experience and more so a unique one. It was concluded by the vote of thanks.

Mr. Praveen Tripathi, CEO of Magic 9 (Media and Analytic)

Mr Praveen Tripathi began the seminar by giving a brief introduction about the classification of households in India. Sir mentioned about the New Consumer Classification System (NCCS) in which there are 12 grades of classification varying from A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, D3, E1, E2, and E3. He contrasted it with the old classification system in which there were 8 grades only. The basic theme behind all this classification is the life score which is assigned to all the households. Life score is calculated based on the education of chief owner and consumer durable. And the discrimination is measured by the Larenz Curve and Gini coefficient. The major drawback of this system as mentioned by sir was that the consumer durable penetration changes faster than education or occupation level. “Inside every transaction there is a knowledge, you need to decode it.” With this quote sir gave a brief about television audience metrics in India which started with Doordarshan Audien
