The timid me…

Isn’t sure if he will be able to cope up, keep up and show up everyday (here or elsewhere). Is afraid of sharing his thoughts due to his insecurities ranging from “what would they think of me” to “I don’t think I have anything great to say” and everything in between. Wants to “know it […]

Speaking in front of a camera isn’t really public speaking

Though it’s almost as intimidating as delivering a message in front of real eyeballs! Without a doubt, the dynamics of speaking in front of a camera are quite similar to speaking in front of an actual audience but they’re still not the same. And they can’t ever be… unless you’re speaking in front of a […]

Is there nothing new under the sun?

While I’m not sure if that’s the truth, I certainly know we all have a hard time believing that statement. But here’s my honest opinion — your thoughts have been thunk before. Your ideas have been implemented before. Your challenges have been dealt with before. You just need to look for these old ideas and […]

Here’s why behavioral change seems impossible within teams

As a leader you’ve basically got two options to drive behavioural change within your organization — send them the memo or fire them, if they fail to comply. While an intentional leader will question this strategy’s sustainability the leader-next-door can’t think any better! I believe there’s a third approach that can do wonders. But it […]

How to make it big after getting fired…

I’ve been fired twice over a span of 16+ years. And finding another job has been least of my problems. Here’s why — I don’t ever assume that things are going to get better at my next job. I know that I’ll have to prove myself to be a worthy contender among the hundred others […]

The art of gifting

I’m not sure if such a thing exists but then, I know there are people (including some of my close friends and, of course, my better half!) who’re really great at gifting. I’m not. In fact, I just suck! Nonetheless, all that self-criticism doesn’t really help matters. I used to believe extending a gift is […]

You can change a dozen things or start with just one

One of the most popular activities among seasoned trainers and facilitators is to have the participants stand up and pick a partner. And after that, they’re all asked to change 12 things about their appearance (tousle up their hair, unbuckle their belt… one gentlemen even unzipped his pants)!

If you see this headline anywhere on the interwebs, run for your life! I mean, literally. If you can’t, be prepared to be swooned away by a compelling copy that will make you pull your credit card out of your wallet and pay.

90% of coaching is self-coaching… but someone has to help them explore!

The other day Seth Godin shared a compelling post on why all motivation is self-motivation. And he’s so damn right, as usual, to say that. Motivation is an intent to take action by own our volition. Anything else is just coercion. But here’s one great problem — the post might’ve send wrong signals despite Seth’s […]
