Dr. Aruna Kulkarni

Dr. Aruna believes that we are all a product of “Nature and Nurture”. “Nature” is a part of our physiology, what we were born with and “Nurture” is how people around us and other circumstances influence us and how we develop ourselves.
“Nature and Nurture” ultimately manifest themselves in the outer world as behaviors, and Performance and in turn  a person's productivity is a result of appropriate intervention or development of behaviors
It is possible to develop systems in an organization for this “Nurturing” to be effective and Dr.Aruna has a very rich experience in and is passionate about developing these systems.
