Becoming a Better Leader by Unlocking your Emotional Intelligence

The RockMeRetreat will help you build up your Emotional Intelligence.

Balakirthika Jayakumar

Guest Post by Balakirthika Jayakumar Switzerland is considered a paradise on earth. Every human aspires to set his/her foot on the land of Switzerland. Why is it that one aspires to visit this place? It is the bounty of nature in this country that attracts people. Also, the high standard and quality of living. The people of India are fortunate enough to have a glimpse of Switzerland through movies. It is a cliché to have a song shot in this country to add richness to the movie. Either personally or virtually people have ideas about this country that is exuding “excellence” on all levels (including but not limited to chocolate and cuckoo clocks).
