An Alternative Approach to work...& Life!

‘It’s not my job' is a very popularly heard phrase in the Corporate World – which is the flip side of an otherwise very useful tool called – Job Description (JD) .

Life Cycle : Sequence of events post an Achievement

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes 0 seconds

I believe that every moment in our life has a reason to exist . Each moment needs to be recognised , acknowledged , respectfully received , cherished -while in it & when the momentary life of the moment is passed , it must be let go . The essence of a moment is to add Momentum , when it does that , its role is to move on . Hence while we should live each moment fully , we should leave it when it is over - not get stuck in it , simply because there is another moment knocking at our door . The...

" Aukaat " Apani - Apani

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes 19 seconds

The (Hindi) word 'Aukaat 'is a very useful word - though currently much maligned, due its usage in a derogatory way.Many use it specifically to ' remind ' some one of his / her low standing , to denigrate , to humiliate - to express self , relative hierarchical superiorityTo me, whatever 'meaning ' - is what we attach to a word. Words by themselves are only neutral carriers - we load a meaning on them ; hence a word per say is neither good or bad , it's only an obedient tool to express what the ...

ADDING VALUE

Values & Beliefs

Values  & Beliefs …. seem very close , but I think distinction exists , however thin  .

In a way values also have to be beliefs ( convictions ) though they go beyond being ( mere ) beliefs & actually guide or channel our behaviour — it’s a ‘ fall back ‘ mechanism of our cons...

Coaching Reflection :Responsibility — Sense of ownership

Responsibility is about ‘ owning up ‘  .When one has it he / she does not need to be told what to do, each time .No amount of checklists , reminders can really make up for the absence of sense of responsibility .It’s a position of strength , it presupposes that the control is in your hand . Blaming others is a position of weakness as it presupposes that nothing was in your hand .The lever / control center for sense of responsibility is ‘ internal ‘ to us ; it’s when we don’t h...
