Dogmatism vs. Liberalism

There is no fun debating with a blue-blooded liberalist or a dogmatist. These guys are too clear about their positions. They can berate any opposition irrespective of which camp they belong to.

Risk, Management & Leadership!

Between Management & the Future, lies the grand canyon of Risks! Leadership keeps throwing the rope across this canyon, till it hooks onto something and holds!

Married to Management – II
