Destruction to Resurrection – the Indian SMEs!

Banks are flush with liquidity.

Leading a Purposeful Life!

  The sight of a meaty newspaper left discarded on the street is pathetic enough. But, when a strong gust of wind lifts it up and tears it apart into lonely pieces, one wonders if the mindless misery could have been avoided. If only, the reader had left it where it belonged – on a … Continue reading

Motivational Engagement – the death knell of ‘Purposeful’ Leadership!

The link between remarkable achievements, complexity, and purposeful leadership lies so close to the borders of anarchy or utopia that only finite mindsets based upon choice and volition can provide deeper anchoring.

And this cannot come from … Continue reading

Psephology & the Indian Voter’s Hierarchy of Needs

As the largest and one of the youngest democracies of the world trundles into another general election in its tryst with the future, the rest of the world appears to be quite a bland place with examples of similar challenges already botched up in dispersed patches around the globe. The rise of the Right, fundamentalism, … Continue reading

Leadership Re-fuelled!

Who gives a crap about all the right things written and preached about what makes good Leaders or Managers? They say, a good Leader or a Manager should take care of the long-term, create sustainability, leave behind a legacy. They expect her or him to drive the team or a company towards a purpose beyond … Continue reading

Vision – the pariah word for Managers?

  What is your Vision? Sure, we got a pretty good Vision and Mission statement for the company. We even have our Core Values and we take them very seriously. Everyone joining the company has to go through a one-week orientation programme… Hey, I got to go for a meeting! Oh! You are talking about … Continue reading
