I would rather trust my intuition
And commit a folly
Then trust someone who has
not even given it a try 

I would rather be quirky and whimsical
Then live in studious discipline
For life is not just rocket science
And one does need a breather

Ally or Foe?

The ubiquitous lust for power
Constant strife and discord
War, discontent,  terror and arson
The constant rhetoric and finger pointing
Arms race and nuclear buildup
Bloodshed and broken rubble
Shuffle like images in a kaleidoscope

The fleeting dove has lost its way
In this illusory maze
Deluded in anger , lust and envy
Its vision is blurred
Seeking the rainbow -utopian and ephemeral
The naive man rushes outward
Hidden in his own bosom
Is the lasting peace he seeks

What has 2020 taught you?

December 1, 2020 Leave a comment

  1. For me 2020 has helped me to gain a great deal of perspective
  2. It has helped me to be prepared for the unthinkable
  3. It has shown me that leaders who have a clear vision can help us to chart a course for the future even when things are uncertain
  4. 2020 has shown that Organizations that embrace change as a constant and embed it into their culture can thrive amidst disruptions
  5. We have to plan and be on the lookout for new challenges. It is better to plan now rather than when a crisis strikes us
  6. This year I have been able to speak to 23 leaders from around the world on leadership. I have synthesized their personal anecdotes and actionable insights into a book ‘Leadership in times of Crisis
  7. Many employees had to get used to ‘work from home’. This also affected children who had to attend online classes.
  8. Most children and adults became adept at using video conferencing tools like Zoom, skype, Google meet, Microsoft teams and Goto Meeting to attend online classes or work from home
  9. Some organizations went the extra mile to take good care of their employees during this tough transition. Other organizations were not empathetic enough and even fired employees.
  10. Many people made the best use of this time to exercise, cook, and try out different skills as they had more time on their hands.
