Random thoughts are for real

Bumped into a former colleague yesterday. It was a chance encounter but a good one nonetheless. It’s great to catch up with someone from work after ages! He was blown away with the things I have been doing lately (it’s the usual stuff that you know of… but folks these days get easily impressed with […]

Leveraging your talents to make up for the ones you don’t have

The other day I talked about how anyone takes up any skill and hone to an extent that it becomes second-nature to them. It’s quite possible and I would be an active case study should you ever need one. Though I’m pretty sure there are many around you right now! Communication is #33 among the […]

Your life is worth capturing, isn’t it?

I was in Grade 6 when my English teacher asked us to write a “dear diary” for the very first time. I was good at it and was instantly labeled the go-to person for “diary entries!” Who knew this could be a talent? It didn’t seem like a big deal to me. Perhaps it was […]

You don’t get to decide the hike, dummy!

If you’re employed somewhere, you need to pick up tangible skills that are valuable for both your existing and the next employer. Emphasis on “tangible” because that’s the part almost everyone misses but still would like to have a 30% hike. Which is annoying because: They’ve no freaking clue how the market and employer’s demands […]

Commitment to mastery

It’s idealistic. Pragmatists and the know-it-alls hate it. And ironically, professionals think it’s a waste of time as well since they’re busy playing either catch-up with the trends. Folks at your workplace don’t give a damn about your commitment to mastery. The loving souls at your home just don’t get (and are terribly worried) about […]

How to grow in consistency

Can’t believe I’ve been studying, teaching and coaching the 15 Laws of Invaluable Growth for almost a year now! It has been a fun and rewarding experience. And this year I look forward to engaging with both individuals and corporates for my mastermind workshops. I’m still ironing to the details and will most likely have […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Law of the Mirror

Adding value is the 3rd law, “The Law of the Mirror” from John Maxwell’s 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. The premise is pretty straightforward, you must see value in yourself to add value in yourself.   The most important question that people ask when I say that is “how can I add value in myself?” That’s […]

Can you be my life coach? 

The answer is NO. Particularly when you’re so desperate for solutions. Almost 70% of my potential clients would absolutely ask this question. And here’s the bummer, I don’t market myself as a life coach nor do I have any desire to become a life coach. I’m an executive coach, which can turn into life coaching […]
