TV actor Saumya Tandon, best known for playing Anita Bhabhi in Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain, was recently robbed by her cab driver during her trip to Istanbul. Saumya said, “I had gone to shop from the grand bazaar and after that had a Turkish bath so was feeling relaxed. I was on my way to Karakoy for dinner. I took a taxi from the street. I noticed that the taxi meter was not on the mirror, a norm here (in Istanbul), but the driver said this was normal. Soon I was absorbed in the scenic beauty and when my stoppage came, he stopped the car in the middle of the road and asked me to pay up. He told me he had to rush for his Ramzan prayer and started scolding me for taking time to find the change.” She further said, “When I asked him to show the meter, he showed me some other meter and it sa
You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t feel at least a twinge of nerves when interacting with important people. We’re social beings, designed to influence and be influenced, so of course you’re going to notice and react to another person’s success, status, or power. There’s no need to tie yourself up in knots, however. A few small changes in your mindset and approach can help you decrease your anxietyand increase your chances of having a conversation you’re proud of. 1. Name the Problem Whether you call it anxiety, discomfort, intimidation, or something else, what’s eating at you is fear. This feeling hijacks your rational thought processes, and it’s crucial to ask yourself what, exactly , you’re afraid of if you want to get over it. The underlying cause of your fear will be unique to
Recently, I summed up in one sentence exactly why people quit their jobs. Well, actually, Gallup CEO Jim Clifton did, stating that the real reason is due to bad managers. That’s based on decades of data and interviews with 25 million employees, Gallup found. Naturally, the next question should be why? This is what I aim to answer here as a follow up: “Why do leaders fail at their jobs, exactly?” First, we need a clear definition of what great leadership looks like, as a backdrop to answer that question in one succinct sentence. I’m going to put everything on the line here. If you were to ask these ten of the world’s most successful leaders about their roles as CEOs of their respective companies, I would wager that every single one of them would tell you that a leader’s ultimate role (
In our discussion about business success we talk a lot about the importance of grit, failure, and even time management. But in our conversations about leadership one thing doesn’t seem to come up often: humility. I recently keynoted the conference where I spoke about innovation and leadership, which prompted a lot of follow-up conversations with the attendees. But one story, told to me by Gregg Gregory, the founder of Teams Rock and a public speaker, was especially fascinating. It was a story of humble leadership. About fifteen years ago Gregory was boarding the Southwest flight flying out of Orlando, Florida. Way in front of him in the boarding line he noticed a man with a giant Mickey Mouse baseball hat on. He didn’t think anything about it until he walked onto the plane and saw tha
First impressions are unavoidable. You can spend a long time trying to convince others of your qualities, but you’ll have a difficult time being perceived as genuine if your appearance doesn’t sync with the values you’re trying to express. The image you choose to portray to others is a big reflection of your true self, but the opposite effect can also be achieved. Ever heard the slogan “dress for success”? It’s true. Research psychologist Jeffrey L. Magee surveyed over 500 firms to assess the impact of dress in the workplace. His studies led to the conclusion that continually relaxed dress ultimately leads to relaxed manners, relaxed morals and relaxed productivity. Magee’s findings shouldn’t come as a surprise. Here’s why. It’s simple psychology. Think about your own experience.
Tim Cook urged Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s class of 2017 to use their minds, hands, and heart to build something bigger than themselves, and to never lose sight of their humanity. Apple’s CEO told the graduates on Friday morning that they must keep their morals at the center of what they do. “Measure your impact on humanity not in likes but in the lives you touch, not in popularity but the people you serve,” Cook said during his commencement speech. “I found my life got bigger when I stopped caring about what people thought of me.” Cook explained that when he was younger, he struggled to find purpose in his life. He searched for it in graduate school at Duke University, meditation, religion, and the writings of philosophers. He also joked about a “moment of youthful indiscr
