Overview

The Indian education system is called a pressure cooker, where students have to mug the concepts in an endeavor to score the maximum marks. Yet, Indians are contributing across the globe through their skills and achieving leadership roles in top companies.

What is wrong with the Indian education system? What is right with the system? How is Indian education evolving? We have all the questions covered in today’s discussion with Nasir Shaikh, Group CEO of Lexicon Group.

[00:38] – About Nasir Shaikh

  • Mr. Nasir Shaikh is the Group CEO of the Lexicon Group of Institutes.
  • He is also a conflict and life coach.
  • He comes from a humble background and is thankful to his parents for investing in education despite the monetary challenges.

[09:22] – Despite the Indian education system labelled as a pressure cooker, we see Indians performing really well in their careers. Why is this happening?

  • It is the combination of the education system and our values and culture.
  • As children, one of the things that most parents will have a conversation is about how they want to give their children that they didn’t have, be it, better education, or lifestyle.
  • That sets in a child an aspirational value to do better.
  • Our education system is evolving and becoming better with time.
  • The most important aspect is the number of children going into schools. With literacy rate increasing, it is not because of new generation of learners, it is because of more of the elders.
  • While some part of our education system may focus on road learning, I think, culturally, we are bought up to handle pressure well.
  • We see adversity at young age, be it, access to food for some children or access to quality technology for them.
  • As Indians, we turn adversity to our advantage.

[15:28] – What is your perspective on the amount of government control one education, and whether there should be more freedom given to educational institutions?

  • It ensures that you are not getting cheated.
  • Situations like getting admission in a university that does not exist, are very rare.
  • India is a large country, so it is very important that the guidelines and the channels are well set.
  • Through the system that the government has set in, you have guidelines. There is a minimum viable product available everywhere, every time.
  • With all the technology that government has given, your degrees are in the digilocker. There is a lot of control, which means that you are getting an authentic education.

[18:03] – Tell me about your work as a conflict and life coach.

  • In my journey, I was lucky to have a lot of mentors and support. I wanted to make a difference.
  • I realized, that I too enjoyed mentoring and moved from unstructured mentoring to structured mentoring.
  • When I saw the hotel staff rising to become general managers, I decided to learn more about life and leadership coaching through ICF.
  • The main essence of coaching is not giving solutions, so I enjoy helping them find their own solutions.
  • The Maharashtra National Law University launched a two-year master’s program for mediation and conflict resolution.
  • A big believer in learning for life, I enrolled in the program during the pandemic. I realized that conflict is the other piece that we need to work on.
  • Conflict coaching is about helping conflicts in workspaces and families. It is about getting them together to listen.
  • Most conflicts arise due to lack of communication or how you react to the communication you received, because you have not listened well.
