"Myself attended ODA's Leadership Workshop held at kollam."We are well experienced.What additional we can gain from this 5 days" I entered in the venue with this approach.The first hour itself ODA proved that I am wrong. In fact we felt that we are in our child hood.Enjoyed the activity oriented learning like a child watching an interesting movie.   We ourselves detected the change occurs in our minds.we realized what we are and where we stand and how we can manage an institution as a leader of a team.I recommend this workshop to all managers,Principal's and head of institutions to change their attitude and ODA helps us to open the windows to a wide global vision."
