10 Keys to Stand out as a Leader

 Leadership has been endlessly dissected and ultimately even with the advent of technology the fundamentals of leadership has not changed. Leaders should have the ability to inspire others to action. It is getting people to do things which they normally would not have done without the leader’s intervention. For me leadership is about three things dreaming big with a compelling vision, ability to inspire others and leading by example. I have expanded each letter of the word leadership to identify the key requirements for becoming a great leader.

8 Ways to Awaken the Olympian Within

The 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing is underway and I want to wish the best to all the participants to bring on their best game. One of the inspirational performances was that of Eileen Gu as she had to land a move she had never tried in competition. Gu won a gold medal in freestyle skiing, hopefully the first of many for her.

26 Tips to be at your Successful Best in 2022

Success is a wonderful word that all of us want to be associated with. In my opinion, everyone should define their success and it is for the individual to decide if they are successful or not. For example, the French chef Bernard Loiseau would be a success by anyone’s standard. However, he committed suicide because of a news report that hinted his restaurant may lose its 3-star status.  While setting high standards for our work and life is always a good sign, it is not good if we are never happy with what we achieve. This is why success requires a balance between striving for more and enjoying the current success.  I believe the recipe of success can be baked with the following ingredients. Here is my A - Z of Success. A for Ambition: To achieve any type of success you need a lot of ambition. The people who have made a mark in this world have all been highly ambitious with a compelling vision for the future. Ambition shouldn’t be confused with greed. When you have ambition it creates a
