10 things you can do to make this world a better place to live

One thing I learnt in coaching is that first you need to be the change to change the world.

You as an individual can do a lot, without spending a penny. You have so much that you can share and yet receive it back in abundance. In the following list, money is not even mentioned.

Your response shows how learned you are

How you respond to life situations displays your maturity as well your awareness about yourself. The crux of all your education, degrees and experience should build you into a person who knows exactly how to respond appropriately in every situation.

Fear of failure

Fear of failure

The single most universal internal block that supresses our growth is fear of failure, lack of confidence, self-doubt, and lack of self-belief

However, it is also true that in a safe environment people tend to tell the truth about themselves and when they do, it is the responsibility of the leaders to help them cope with the shortcomings. But building others self-belief demands that we release our desire to control them.

Is crying at workplace unprofessional?

Is crying at workplace unprofessional?

Yesterday, a senior leader of Congress, Ghulam Nabi Azad officially retired from Rajya Sabha and our Prime Minister Narendra Modi bid farewell to him with teary eyes. No one expects a country’s prime minister to cry in the Parliament, but he did choose to display his emotions without worrying about what the world would think. We all get emotional in our workplaces and tend to burst out in certain situations, while at the same time believe that crying in a professional setting is just about the worst thing one can do. Why is crying at work such a taboo? Anthropologists claim that crying violates ‘display rules,’ or cultural norms for self-expression and socialization. Fortunately, more people (including employers) today are recognizing that crying is part of human nature, and crying at work isn’t a denunciation of your professional abilities, nor it’s only a woman thing.

Employees – Customers – Profit – What comes first?

They believe that if employees are happy and looked after, customers will flock, get retained well and profit eventually has to come. That’s what Vineet Nayar of HCL believed in and made the firm successful in all respects. Few leaders strongly believe it is the customer who needs a primary priority, hence the phrase – ‘customer is the king’ dictates all the business operations. Some organizations go to any extent to please the customers, even at the cost of the employee morale or willingness. So what about profit – does it stand a chance? Well, the ugly truth is that in the capitalist world, this is the strongest objective which the leaders want to drive but will rarely agree to. Sounds controversial? I know it is, but everyone wants profits – shareholders,Read More

Monday = Motivation – where the hell it is?

Monday = Motivation – where the hell it is?

It’s #Monday again and you are finding it difficult to #focus on your #work, by the time the week ends, you won’t know where the time vanished. You seem to be losing #motivation to be as efficient as you were? Well, you are not alone, this #pandemic has driven many to this state. Minda Zetlin in an Inc.com article recommends three things to bring your mojo back:1) Create rituals – rituals are habits, which you create consciously, to kick start the day and even to end the day. I start my day with my daily prayers and then a short meditation session and end the day with a long walk or a high-intensity exercise session. You can choose what suits you but something that lifts your mood and appeals to your sense 2) Reward yourself – once you complete something important or achieved any small but important task, reward yourself. It can be a small gift, a video game session or evenRead More
