Dear professionals,

Quote this : “Face reality as it is . . . not as it was or as you wish it to be. Be candid with everyone. Don't manage, lead change before you have to . . . If you don't have a competitive advantage, don't compete . . . Control your own destiny or someone else will”. - Jack Welch

Lead and inspire people. Don't try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead. - Ross Perot

Mantra 1: Embrace change, don’t fear it

“The objective is not to get people to support change but to give them responsibility for engendering change, some control over their destiny”.- Gary Hamel

Mantra 2: Stop managing, start leading

“People want to be part of something larger than themselves. They want to be part of something they’re really proud of, that they’ll fight for, sacrifice for, that they trust.” - Howard Schultz, Starbucks

Mantra 3: Cultivate manager who share your vision

“A magnificent vision articulates peoples' hopes and dreams, touches their hearts and spirits, and helps them see how they can contribute”- Blanchard, Ken and Stoner, Jesse

Mantra 4: Face reality, and then Act decisively

“Leadership begins with vision and realization of the brutal facts”- Prof Jim Collin
“…Without Execution , the breakthrough thinking breakdown , learning adds no value, people don’t meet their stretch goals and the revolution stops dead in its tracks. What you change for the worse because failure drain the energy from the organization and Repeated failure destroy it”.- Larry Bossidy & Ram Charan/ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

Mantra 5 Be simple, Be consistent and hammer your message Home

“What is complex and sophisticated about Mahatma Gandhi’s theory, which delivered independence to the world’s largest democracy? As elements of design, it had two things: non-violence and non-cooperation. They were simple enough to convey the same meaning to an illiterate indigo grower in Bihar and the Harrow-returned Jawaharlal Nehru”. - Subroto Bagchi

“Jack Welch & the GE way”by Robert Slater

Any comments ?

Umbrella cant stop d rain,
But makes us stand in d rain..
Confidence may not bring success,
But gives power to face any challenge in life.

U r born without anything but u die with ur name..
So that name must not b a Word..
It must b a History
Acheiver never exposes themselves..
But their acheivement exposes them..
DO OR DIE is old saying..
Do before u Die is new one
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: , no events,
have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day,
 today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.
Never get upset if u take more time to get success than others!
A Pyramid takes more time to build than an ordinary Building!!
"I studied everything but never topped!!
But, today the Toppers of d best universities r my employees...."
1980, IDBI bank rejected loan for Ambani..
.29 yrs later,
Mukesh Ambani is planning to buy IDBI..
This shows nothing is impossible!!
Today, Swiss bank rejected loan for me!! ;-)
 If life gives hundred reasons to cry then
show it thousands reasons to smile..
