Understand your Boss

Shared by Shri Adil Was addressing a Socialite Club gathering on ‘Life & Realities in the Corporate’. The ‘spirited’ group conspired & veered to argue that all problems were caused by ‘bad bosses’. In a way, I wanted to agree for that is life. But the topic covered ‘reality’ as well and thus I told them as I share … Like or Dislike …. you have to learn to manage upwards. Your boss is pivotal to your success generally and your failure, occasionally. Firstly to acknowledge … your boss has been successful in reaching the position which you have not as yet. Surely, he has something. Like it or disagree. More experience, generally more knowledge, bigger network, more power, more information and a lot more serendipity by h...

No Dirty Politics by Shri Adil

No Dirty Politics – but you cannot afford to be apolitical leader in the political eco-system of an organisation. No one in leadership roles can avoid political side of their enterprise much as you may be a champion at delivering the value-creation role that you may be appointed. All organisations exist in a political environment where decisions are made, resources are allocated, rewards are shared, careers are made and careers destroyed. To be effective, a leader cannot hunker down the power structure and claim to focus only on his work role and assignment delivery. Each successful leader has but to thus play certain political roles. Like or dislike. No choice but to play these roles effectively to be able to cope with certain organisation realities to make. Each time a senior candi...

HR Garba by HR Milestone Forum

Hi HRians, The word garba comes from the Sanskrit word for womb and so implies gestation or pregnancy — life. Traditionally, the dance is performed around a clay lantern with a light inside, called a Garbha Deep (“womb lamp”). This lantern represents life, and the fetus in the womb in particular. The dancers thus honor Durga, the feminine form of divinity.Garba is performed in a circle as a symbol of the Hindu view of time. The rings of dancers revolve in cycles, as time in Hinduism is cyclical. As the cycle of time revolves, from birth, to life, to death and again to rebirth, the only thing that is constant is the Goddess, that one unmoving symbol in the midst of all of this unending and infinite movement. The dance symbolizes that God, represented in feminine form in this cas...
