We as team firmly believe that supporting each other as well as sharing ideas with each other, makes us maintain a friendly atmosphere and motivates a healthy environment in the team.Respecting each other’s’ ideas and giving opportunity to each other helps everyone to blossom.
We respect the views of all team members
Running any organization is all about solving problems about the business which is majorly done through co-operation between all the managers and their respective team members. In our team managers act as the role models for the juniors, appreciating their efforts and there is no dominance by them on their subordinates. In the process the juniors feel inspired and motivated to attain the post of a manager, in the subsequent year.
Our team is a small family which enables us to broaden our work areas, no one is confined to one particular task. We switch our roles after every four months, thereby getting to know the functioning of the enterprise well as well as working with new team members. And believe it or not, all of us have been a part of the Fundraising Event at some time or the other!
Participating in the Fundraising Events is what keeps us moving and our biggest motivation!
Our team is always open for reviews and feedbacks, positive feedback makes us happy and encourages us to achieve more while negative feedback inspires us to work hard and make efforts to remove the pitfalls.
Our greatest motivation as a team was when one of our customers (Mr. Praveen Singh Mandloi), a parent who has a big farmland placed an order of 500 kg of compost in the month of April 2017. It was such a happy moment for all of us that we are motivated even now thinking about that order.

Lastly, support from the school, teachers and family motivates all of us to actively participate in the enterprise.
‘To fight the ups and downs, we are a family’
As a business team we had a low morale when few of our parents, our major customer group,questioned us about the utilization of the profits. They wanted to know how we were using the profits for a noble cause. Even though we mentioned all the details, one of them did not seem to be satisfied. After a brainstorming session, we realized we needed to act fast and sooner the better. We decided to have an Orientation Session for the parents of each class on the day of the annual result apprising them about our enterprise and how we use the profits through a power point presentation, a video and a talk. We felt satisfied when some of the parents told us that it was wonderful to know about the achievements of the school, our Lead teacher and the way we were using the profits!!That was our biggest motivation!
