The case about business cases

I honestly don’t feel the need to create business cases unless you’re selling a product or service to a potential or existing client. They would need that kind of documentation in addition to references and use cases to be able to sell your brand internally. I, however, would only invest time in building a case […]

Make your workplace great again!

I know it’s easier said than done but it sure is up a committed leader’s alley. A fearless organisation is one that provides psychological safety, encourages open communication, and makes it safe for all employees to fail. Of course, I don’t mean failing deliberately but doing one’s best while embracing failures as and when it […]

On routines… yet again!

I’ve written about routines countless times and I think it all led up to 2020, “the year when earth quarantined itself.” (That’s one heck of a dramatic headline, no?) I’ll be honest, I would be in a hospital for mental treatment if it weren’t for the habits and routines I’d invested so much time to […]

How do we become more?

As one of the most frequently asked questions that I ask myself, I can tell you, there’s no easy answer. Contrary to the popular notion, having a game plan isn’t enough.

How have you been and how are you doing?

I’ve seen a spike in the number of WhatsApp messages I’ve been receiving of late. Almost all are a variant of the following message: Hey, Sunil! How have you been? I hope all is well?Stay safe and strong. Cheers! And I’ve done my best to respond to each of these messages. Generic or not, it’s […]

This too shall pass

Could this be the worst the world has ever seen? With all due respect and without minimising the seriousness of the situation — I don’t think so. We’ve see more than a dozen crises’ over the past 20 years such as the Y2K/dot com bubble burst (2000), 911 attacks (2001), SARs (2003-4), the global financial […]

What you’re not aware of controls you…

Someone wise once said, “the first call of leadership is identifying reality.” And you do that by gaining knowledge and insights about your situation, surroundings, and most importantly yourself. This last bit seems to be missing in pursuit of knowledge acquisition. Why? Mere knowledge is only potential power, waiting to be tapped into. Having a […]

Choose your sources wisely

We have to stay informed, I get it. But don’t be like that moron who’s watching the news or newsfeeds online all the time. It doesn’t do you any good. If you’re the “channel surfer” kind or the one with thousands of sources to their Feedly account, I strongly recommend now is a great time […]

Your attitudes and actions must match-up

I was listening to a webinar by Chris Robinson the other day who spewed gems after gems that I will be sharing over the next few weeks. One of the most thought provoking ideas was the index card that Chris carries with him everyday with 5 key questions. They are the following: What do I […]

People want answers… but they are always in the questions

Surprised? Well, most of my prospects are when I walk them through the discovery sessions where they experience the power of the coaching process. By the end of these session, they have greater insights on their lives and know why coaching can help them get to that “next level” in life. Unfortunately, the above isn’t […]
