In today’s highly competitive business environment, even the leading organizations struggle to maintain their business longevity. To increase their chances of long-term success, companies must transform into sustainable enterprises, skilled in adapting to changing priorities, markets, and customer demands. In this transformation, the workforce plays a crucial role. Having a high performing team can positively affect the organization’s growth and help them stay competitive. As a result, they provide learning and development (L&D) programs for their employees and use several other means to keep their employees engaged.
In many cases, because of the culture of the organization, the adoption of learning from these programs is relatively less, thereby limiting the effectiveness of the L&D program. But, even if the employees attempt to adopt the learning with the right intention, repeated failures in those trials lead to “Learned helplessness.” The culture also renders some of the employee engagement methods ineffective. To address this issue, Kognitivus Training and Consulting was established in 2015. The company’s sole purpose is to help people unleash their potential by helping organizations build a culture that unleashes excellence, promotes connections & catalyzes growth; leading to a highly engaged workforce that drives value creation for their clients. It has developed a unique approach that not only assists people to learn and adopt new behaviors but also works with the organization’s leadership to form the culture in alignment with their strategy to ensure the sustainability of the culture and eventually the organization

According to Siddhartha, candidates who want to succeed in this sector should have a certain skill set. This skill set includes complex problem-solving ability, emotional intelligence, high integrity and values, creativity & innovation, service orientation, working with ambiguity, and cognitive flexibility.
Developing Finest Solution with Consistence
The space of Strategy, Growth, and People Alignment is one of the most difficult areas as it is where there is no one solution for every problem. Therefore, Siddhartha believes that in order to succeed in this space, the consulting company needs to be continuously learning about the obvious and non-obvious, to self-develop its people, bring in a serving attitude, flexibility in approach, and finally, develop innovative and novel solutions. By adopting and implementing these points, the consulting company can develop the finest solutions and deliver a consistent level of experience to every customer.
In the upcoming years, the Founder believes that HR Analytics is going to be the next thing in the people strategy and transformation and will use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the core.
