Changing leadership in an Organisation..!!

Be Inspired..!!

Let us begin with an understanding of what is organizational Culture? The Cambridge Dictionary defines it as “the types of attitudes and agreed ways of working shared by the employees of a company or organization.” It is a jargon used by leaders across the world. It exudes teamwork; open working environment and many other positive qualities of an organization; and the leadership thrives to achieve an optimal culture in the organization.

But if at anytime a leader of the organisation leaves, what happens to this optimal culture? Wouldn’t the entire work culture go for a toss? We have all experienced such a phenomenon either through direct experience or otherwise. (To begin with, there will be experts who will give their opinion as to why the leader left adding to office gossip at the coffee machine or the photocopier machine, or a simple questions “Who’s Next to go?, and /or there…

No More Running from your Calendar



When you decide to become an entrepreneur or business owner, your time is of the essence. When it comes to your business, you must have a good system for organizing your schedule. As an entrepreneur myself I realized from the beginning systems are a must. I use a number of systems to keep my business organized, they allow me to be as productive as possible each day.

  • Do you feel overcome with anxiety when you look at the number of tasks you have at any given time during the week?

How to test your decision-making instincts


Executives should trust their gut instincts—but only when four tests are met.

One of the most important questions facing leaders is when they should trust their gut instincts—an issue explored in a dialogue between Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman and psychologist Gary Klein titled “Strategic decisions: When can you trust your gut?” published by McKinsey Quarterly in March 2010. Our work on flawed decisions suggests that leaders cannot prevent gut instinct from influencing their judgments. What they can do is identify situations where it is likely to be biased and then strengthen the decision process to reduce the resulting risk.

Our gut intuition accesses our accumulated experiences in a synthesized way, so that we can form judgments and take action without any logical, conscious consideration. Think about how we react when we inadvertently drive across the center line in a road…

How to Know If You Need a Professional Tune-Up

The Integrated Workplace

In just a couple of weeks, my friend Claire and I are starting a series of “professional support groups” called Realigning Your Professional Self. We wanted to put this together for a couple of key reasons:

Second, not everyone needs a major career overhaul. Sometimes we just need small tune-ups along the way, as if we’re getting a regular “Career Oil Change.”

It can be tough to know if we really need something to be different in our career or if something else is at play in another area of our lives. If you’re feeling relatively healthy and stable in your body, your relationships, and your finances, it’s much…

Insomnia and Productivity

Insomnia is the lifelong curse for some of us.  Sleep eludes us, and when it does come it seems to be minimal.  This worsens with age.

But sometimes the “REM Rebound” can lead to particularly colorful dreams, and these dreams can be sources of inspirations and solutions to problems.

While this blog was not born precisely of such a situation, this particular post (the first post) was.  Insomnia led to reducing an idea into practice and starting this blog as part of a large project to explore hypnosis, dreams, and inspiration.

We hope you enjoy our commentary.
