Observations in the corporate world

  1. Data can be a servant to the narrator
  2. No one is a great leader everyday. Leadership is a choice that a person has to make everyday.
  3. A leader who is visionary and inspiring in one situation may be absolutely ineffective in another.
  4. Ego is very expensive for an organization
  5. People ‘do’ less than 20% of their talk-quotient.
  6. When judging your own performance, it always seems like you have moved mountains… when judging another’s,’ it seems like the environment conspired to make it happen.
  7. Half – truths are lies
  8. The trustworthy person is one who has personal integrity in thought, word and action
  9. A leader with thinly veiled personal ambition of self-advancement can never be a good leader
  10. A leader has to BE the values he wants to inculcate
  11. A person who is unable to balance work and life is too uni-dimensional to be a good leader in the long run
  12. I have never met a good leader who wasn’t a good person first
  13. It is time to be concerned when perceptions become greater than reality
  14. You can find fault with anything if you really want to
  15. Logic doesn’t work with everyone
  16. The more you try to procrastinate on something, the more it comes back to haunt you
  17. Underperformance is very rarely an individual issue
  18. It is amazing how often superior talent and effort still leads to no tangible outcome
  19. Proving someone wrong is a waste of time and effort

What are some of your reflections? Add to the list!

  1. Could add a few more-What goes up has to come down, so do not be disheartened by downfalls.-Human Resource is the most critical resource in a Company.
