The 15 laws of invaluable growth mastermind

I’m game for my third 10-week study on the 15 laws of invaluable growth mastermind. It’s based on a book by the same name by John Maxwell (I’m part of the John Maxwell Team and am licensed to teach some of his flagship courses). This is a powerful mastermind focusing on accelerating not just your […]

A better way to lose weight

Get stronger. Period. Countless people step into the gym, hire a personal trainer or worse try to train themselves using one of those crappy training programs floating on the internet. All in the hopes of losing weight and getting that chiseled physique. Here’s the truth — the ones who step into the gym with no […]

The authentic leader

Having worked with several leaders over the course of my career as a service professional, I can confidently say that only a few of them were authentic leaders. And no, I’m not implying the others weren’t any good. Not at all. What I’m saying is that being an authentic leader is a much deeper commitment […]

Here’s why behavioral change seems impossible within teams

As a leader you’ve basically got two options to drive behavioural change within your organization — send them the memo or fire them, if they fail to comply. While an intentional leader will question this strategy’s sustainability the leader-next-door can’t think any better! I believe there’s a third approach that can do wonders. But it […]

How to make it big after getting fired…

I’ve been fired twice over a span of 16+ years. And finding another job has been least of my problems. Here’s why — I don’t ever assume that things are going to get better at my next job. I know that I’ll have to prove myself to be a worthy contender among the hundred others […]

Your presentation persona

Found a great article by the folks at Ethos3 (A presentation design agency) on understanding your presentation persona. I simply love these guys for what they do! Just presentations (including training). But that’s probably because I love to deliver presentations. But I digress, the article gives a glimpse of Badge, the agency’s proprietary presentation persona […]

You can change a dozen things or start with just one

One of the most popular activities among seasoned trainers and facilitators is to have the participants stand up and pick a partner. And after that, they’re all asked to change 12 things about their appearance (tousle up their hair, unbuckle their belt… one gentlemen even unzipped his pants)! The response is almost always overwhelming! Some […]

How to start a 6-figure business

If you see this headline anywhere on the interwebs, run for your life! I mean, literally. If you can’t, be prepared to be swooned away by a compelling copy that will make you pull your credit card out of your wallet and pay. If you’re the cautious kind, you’ll explore payment options and see if […]

90% of coaching is self-coaching… but someone has to help them explore!

The other day Seth Godin shared a compelling post on why all motivation is self-motivation. And he’s so damn right, as usual, to say that. Motivation is an intent to take action by own our volition. Anything else is just coercion. But here’s one great problem — the post might’ve send wrong signals despite Seth’s […]

Perception isn’t reality

One of my colleagues won an online gaming championship hosted by the co-working space we work at. Close to 50 people participated and our colleague destroyed them all. I was so proud of him! Sure it wasn’t a crowning achievement but it sure deserved recognition. It’s not easy to win any competition, big or small. […]
