Profit from Transforming People

11 years ago an organization took a small leap of faith, which resulted in a gigantic leap into the area of People Development. They were trailblazers in an untapped territory and ran with an idea that was ahead of the times. They refused to tread the beaten path and the road to Transformation rose to meet them. Today this organization is a One – Stop Leadership Training House for all People Groups. Click here to know more about the Champions of Change.

The Journey Begins:

In the year 2000 three inspired and visionary men set out to not just to talk about transformation but act on it. They decided to become ‘catalysts of change’ and create a new generation of positive, successful leaders who would in turn influence people into positive action. They launched PeoplePro, the training company that would unleash a ‘leadership wave’ in the years to come. What fuelled their passion was the belief that every person is ‘leader’ material and can be shaped into one, in the right hands.

An extensive HR survey was conducted across industries to reveal a lot that had to be fixed at the foundational level and it had to be done at the schools. That’s when PeoplePro started our sustained school initiative called SALT (Skills and Attitudes for Life Transformation). Operations in Bangalore where work started at schools at the grass root level to bring in such changes. SALT covers core areas under the acronym FLAVOURS like Future Focus, Life Skills, Attitudes, Values & Ethics, Occupational Edge, Relationship Skills and Self Empowerment.

PeoplePro Trainers and Consultants are headquartered in Bangalore. It was initially started to meet the growing need of leadership training in schools. Today PeoplePro has diversified to train up various other People-groups like Parents, Teachers, Graduates, Post Graduates and Corporates. A 360 degree holistic training products is adopted for all people groups.

What started as a spark has become a raging fire today! Within a span of 8 years, with a professional set
of trainers and an “in-house” R&D team, more than 100,000 young lives have been touched, helping them to meet challenges in life and yet be sensitive to the needs of the society, resulting in an all-round developed individual.

The Road Ahead:

There is a huge potential in the education sector both schools and colleges at least for the next 25 years. At the current birth rate and the policy changes by the Indian Government to steer Indian education from a score card angle to over all human resource development angle. Last year the focus was on the Southern markets. This it will be in the North and probably in the latter part of 2013, it would be on the Central, Western and Eastern regions. Focus would also be on Delhi and the cities near Delhi, UP and Gujarat will be targeted and there is active scouting for Master Franchise Partners in Punjab, Rajasthan, HP and Kashmir.
In India almost all centres would be Franchise owned centres but there would also be a parallel construction of a brick structure where there would be four of our Regional Support Offices to cater to different regions, and there will be a Master Franchise network to develop regions that would be called as Regional Partners. The Regional Partners play a crucial role in developing their regions and we together appoint franchises under them. This would create a defined multi layered structure. In the next 2 – 5 years, there is a potential of setting up at least 300 centres in India and expanding in a big way into APAC (Asia Pacific) and MENA (Middle Eastern and North African) regions.
