Relationships & Leadership!

What has Relationships got to do with Leadership? Let me start with the assumption that there is no relationship between the two. Leaders in every arena, be it the professional (organisational), family or social, can function successfully without worrying about having to build on relationships with people they work with, live or interact with. It … Continue reading

Necessity is NOT the mother of invention!

Remarkable achievements, transformational change and leaving a powerful impact on others’ minds are topics that always engrossed me. In the early part of my life, I did not have the semantics of today neither did I do things out of reflective choice. Like most, I also did things steered by habits of thinking and action … Continue reading

Are you still searching?

An old friend after reading a recent article of mine asked me this question, ‘Amit, are you still searching?’. My instant response was, ‘Of course, I am. The day I stop searching, I will be dead’. My friend is a good friend and did not pursue further but the lurking shadow of a supplementary kept … Continue reading

La Musica Cubana – Who pays the price?

It seems like the Salsa, the Rhumba, the Son or the Tango all have conspired to form the invigorating music that is soaked in by anyone visiting Havana. The price tag in CUC (the Cuban Convertible Peso) as an equivalent for the US$ is happily traded in by all visitors and shelled out at any … Continue reading

Religion & Leadership!

These thoughts jostled in my mind at the end of the big festive season in India. I was peacefully perched on my chair at my balcony, adequately supported by my smiling teapot, an accepting ashtray, fresh evening air and my laptop – what else does a man need when alone with his mind? I thought … Continue reading

Anxiety & Leadership!

Daily routine after getting back home from work. After a wink, a hug or a warm smile depending upon who opened the door for me, I love to hear my own voice booming through our home. ‘Hi, everybody!’ And that’s a yell, not a polite question. I want to reach all my loved ones at … Continue reading

Leaders Change the World they live in!

People who changed the world did not want to change the world. They simply did what they liked to do and became better and better in what they did. They made choices not based on what consequences they would create, but because they were possessed of the purpose that the Choice embodied. They changed the … Continue reading

A Practising Manager!

A Practising Manager as opposed to a student of management is like the trapeze artist high up in the air, balanced precariously on a bare ledge, while the student of management sits in the audience at the edge of his chair with a management programme in his hands. He is wondering when he will get … Continue reading

AAP ki Baat!

As AAP runs the trial of being written off, I ask myself to recall why I supported this party. I did not know AK or Yogendra Yadav then and neither now. I supported this party and voted for them to help build up an ALTERNATIVE national party for my country. To ensure that we remain … Continue reading
