HELP Foundation, J&K collaborated with MANFORD (Management Foundation for Organizational Research and Development) a New Delhi based Organization headed by Anand Devid, a behavioural Scientist, for conducting BREAKHTHROUGH workshops in Kashmir in 2007. The initiative evoked tremendous response. Many Breakthrough workshops have since been conducted both in house for organizations which are charged and open house for individuals from various walks of life, including Doctors, Lawyers, journalists, Engineers, Writers, etc, which are done free of charge.
The BTW is an intensive 3 or 4 day, residential workshop that focuses on Transformational Leadership. Aimed at the Leadership team and Key Principals, the workshop aims to equip them with the ability to provide direction, vision, openness and trust; in order to serve as agents of renewal and growth across the organization.
