Captivating Lines from Here and There-14

  • Do not ask life "Why me?". Instead say "Try me!"
  • The mindset of yesterday's manager ( accepting compromise, keeping things tidy), bred complacency.Tomorrow's leaders must raise issues, debate them and resolve them. They must rally around a vision of what business can become- Jack Welch, Former CEO, GE 
  • Forgiveness of the present is even more important than forgiveness of the past.If you forgive every moment, allow it to be as it is then there will be no accumulation of resentment that needs to be forgiven at some later time- From "Power of Now"By Eckhart Tolle.
  • A leader has to be a  cultivator rather than a manufacturer. He has to provide the overall climate and the environment in which the seed can grow. One wants permissive individuals who do not have a compelling need to reassure themselves that they are leaders- Vikram Sarabhai, Scientist, ISRO
  • Transformation is sustained change and it is achieved through practice- BKS Iyengar, Yoga Guru
  • While communicating, speak not in response to what they say but to what they are thinking; addressing what you think they are thinking rather than what they are saying- Blair Singer, Sales consultant.
  • Whatever the religion, it is sufficient if the person improves- SreeNarayana Guru, Social reformer
  • Performance management is a continuous process spread throughout the year, where the approach is both developmental and rewards. The individual employee's weaknesses, training needs, feedback and concerns are addressed- Ralph Christensen, Author "Road map to Strategic HR"     
  • One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is they are not trying to impress other birds and horses- Dale Carnegie
  • We need to soften the strategic focus at the top so that we can generate new possibilities from within the organization- Andy Grove, Former CEO, Intel.
