You Give; What You Have

Let me start this article by a story that was narrated by David J. Polay and this story became so popular that he eventually wrote a book titled: “The Law of the Garbage Truck.” The story in the words of David, “Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson. And I learned it in the back of a New York City

Self Evaluation: The Mantra For Achieving Great Heights

Have you realised that every second Indian you meet, is an expert in advising others how they should do their jobs. They are not bothered about the quality of their own job but about the quality of the job of others. They are not concerned about the slow speed of their own execution and their own

Leadership Is Not A Rocket Science

There is no doubt that everybody is not a leader. Just look around, you may find highly qualified and intellectual people. But all of them are not leaders. Many of them are just followers. A good number of them may be occupying reasonably high positions in government as well as private sector. Some

The World Is Your Own Mirror Image

A company manager asked a question to his Guru, "My workers are not true to me. My children and even my wife don’t listen to me and I feel that they are thankless for whatever I have done for them. In fact, the entire world seems very selfish to me. No body is correct. I am fed up with this cruel

All Professions Are Great

This article was sent by my friend Commander KL Narsimha in the WhatsApp group of our Indian Navy Batchmates. It must be a forward by him too. And it is very much possible that some of you may have read it also. Even if you have read it earlier, you will love it reading again. A real story... A

Selective Behaviour: Good or Bad?

Have you heard about selective listening? The concept may be clear or not. Let me narrate an incident. A speaker was explaining the ill effects of alcohol to an audience during a talk on wellness. In order to re-inforce his point, he took two transparent glasses and poured clean drinking water in

Say No To Conflict And Yes To Compromise

Mahatma Gandhi ji had said once, “An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” This statement is 100% correct and majority of the people in this world believe in it. Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings are quoted and remembered even today across the world. And so are the teachings of Martin

Discussions: Yes, Arguments: No

Some of us use these two words ‘Arguments’ and ‘Discussion’ interchangeably. Both involve individuals talking with one another and telling what they think, feel, understand about a particular situation or a subject. But according to me there is a lot of difference between these two words. I

Should We Question Our Team Leader?

All those who are reading this article are intellectuals. There is no doubt about that in my mind. And majority of the intellectuals have the habit of questioning generally everything. I personally don’t find anything wrong in that. One must have a mind that reasons out logically and then decide the

Are You A Grassrooter Or Parachuter?

These two words in the title may not find any mention in any of the management books. Even the Oxford dictionary may not have them as I have mentioned. But I am sure you have got the idea what I am trying to say. Dhirubhai Ambani was a Grassrooter while Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani are Parachuters.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

I remember the story told to us in 5th standard by our teacher about an ailing farmer who gave a bundle of sticks to his four sons one by one to break it. Each one of them tried but couldn’t break the bundle of sticks. Then the farmer untied the bundle of sticks and asked his sons to break the

Power Of The Simple Word 'SORRY'

Way back in 1986, I was driving on motorway probably M5 from Plymouth to London over the weekend with my wife and little daughter at a speed of about 90 miles/hour. I was enjoying my smooth drive while thanking Indian Navy that had sent me to UK as commissioning crew of INS Viraat erstwhile HMS
