  • Feedback counts very much #Thought Tank Slide one

    Feedback counts very much

    Because none of us has the total mastery of everything we do, it's hugely important to give & receive feedback. But, in offering feedback, we should do it without understating or overstating as both of these give a distorted view of the reality. Also, in receiving feedback, we should listen attentively to the facts without letting our opinions, preferences or memories cloud the reality in essence.

  • Respect #Thought Tank Slide one


    Most people complain that they’re not treated with respect at work. But, you can’t demand or beg respect from others. You have to earn it. Also, respect, like love, works both ways. Unless you respect others, they won’t respect you. So, instead of whining that you don’t feel respected by others, start respecting others. Then, chances are high that they’ll reciprocate. Respecting yourself and others is the hallmark of a true professional and is essential to building a great career. Always keep it in mind that ‘we’ is bigger than ‘me’.

    #Thought Tank
  • Do a great job #Thought Tank Slide one

    Do a great job

    As a true professional, always do an excellent job no matter how small or unimportant it seems to you to be. Pay attention to details. Whether you’re drafting a proposal for a million dollar project or writing an email to your colleague, do it both with your heart & soul. When other people sense that you love what you do, they’ll trust your judgment. And you’ll effortlessly build a great reputation at work while reinforcing your career success.

    #Thought Tank
  • Learn from the mistakes #Thought Tank Slide one

    Learn from the mistakes

    At work, there is no denying that even the smartest err once in a while. A poor decision, a misjudgment, a wrong choice, therefore, doesn’t have to be a source of permanent regret, guilt or unhappiness. Don’t keep looking over the shoulder. Just take the lesson and move on. As an even more practical strategy, to avoid the pain of such instances to a great extent, look before you leap as often as you can. If you take it positively, a mistake can give you great insights to improve your career instead of wrecking it.

    #Thought Tank
  • Feel Gratitude #Thought Tank Slide one

    Feel Gratitude

    Be always grateful to your parents, your siblings, your teachers, your employers, your friends & relatives, your colleagues, your customers and so on and so forth for everything they’ve done for you. Remember the smallest kindness from anyone and be thankful to that person in your heart whether you say it in words or not. When the moment is ripe, show your gratitude without the slightest hesitation.
