SAHIBA SINGH DHUPAR

“Helping people transform into their best self, is the best Return on Investment as a Trainer. It is beyond financial independence.”

How ICBI Became the Nitrous Oxide to the Struggling Trainer Sahiba Singh Dhupar’s Career, Giving it the Necessary Growth, Exponentially

Sahiba is an MBA HR and was not happy in her first job as an HR management trainee. She also felt that she needs to do something that helps her channelize her innate traits in the right direction. It was excellence she was after but lacked guidance.

As a child and adolescent, Sahiba was always the life of the party and a natural on stage. It was often claimed that she was a born public speaker. But beyond her Group discussions and PIs, her euphoric moment did not hit her until she turned 24 that training is meant for her. Even when she did, she pursued a plethora of training certifications to ensure she equips herself in becoming an effective Communication Skills and Life Skills trainer. While young, she still persisted to achieve her goal to become a trainer par excellence. But her career as a trainer was not giving her the sense of thrive that she needed and deserved. Sahiba sought more market growth and an elevation to her personal brand. Her career was moving at a pace which was not enough for her to accomplish her dreams.

One day, she came across ICBI in the newspaper and she decided to take the plunge and venture into something she never knew was her forte, Image Consulting along with Soft Skills Training. She had been self-employed for over 2.5 years when she joined ICBI, and 3.5 years after she graduated from there. From being a visiting faculty in renowned colleges to undertaking corporate training assignments, she also dealt with both domestic and international one-on-one clients for their Personality Transformation. Her training mantra has always been, “Inside Out” which has been a huge hit in addressing her trainees’ journey from a holistic level. It was thanks to ICBI that she witnessed a boom in her career graph.

10 months ago, ICBI was approached by an upcoming EdTech firm to help them hire, ‘Head: Training and Development’ and a huge fraction of suitable alumnus was given the opportunity to apply. After several rounds and interviews of over 50 trainers, Sahiba received the offer with an annual package of INR 22 Lac+ and decided to join them.
