Earn your stripes!

Earn-your-stripes

The tiger cannot change its stripes, or the leopard its spots.

But teams can earn their stripes when they take a leap in their communication skills.

Communication is at the cornerstone of business efficiency. It is no longer a luxury but rather a necessity.

From sales pitches to training lectures, good presentation and public speaking skills are key to many influential roles in today’s business world.

A mere 7% of comprehension from an audience is based on what was communicated and 93% is based on how it was communicated. Presentation matters a lot!

The good news about presenting is that you can improve with practice.

As entrepreneur Brian Tracy said, “Communication is a skill that you can learn. It’s like riding a bicycle or typing. If you’re willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.”

So, develop your presentation instincts.

Show your true colours!

And cometh the hour, cometh the man, the audience hears the bark but fails to feel the bite.

Presentation is a complex combination of many components that have to jaw together.

Presenters face teething issues, but with proper tools and techniques, it’s a walk in the park.

Are meetings meeting their purpose?

Are-meetings-meeting-their-purpos

You’ve probably heard the adage, “There’s nothing certain in life, except death, taxes and meetings.”

If you look at the statistics, the average time spent in meetings is staggering:

Most business people spend approximately 25 percent of their time in meetings.
Middle managers often spend at least two days out of every week in meetings.
It’s not unusual for executives to be in meetings for up to a whopping four days a week!

We’ve all been there.

We’re sitting in back-to-back hour-long informational meetings. We try to sit attentively as waves of information are poured over us in report after report. Eventually, we realize the meeting is coming to a close and no decisions are being made.

We’re bored, we’re tired, and we think: “This whole meeting could have been an email.

But while those hours in the conference room are unavoidable, they don’t have to be a waste of your time. In fact, by employing a few simple strategies, you can make meetings work to your advantage.

From sales pitches to training lectures, good presentation and public speaking skills are key to many influential roles in today’s business world. The good news about presenting is that you can improve with practice.

Create a new unheard excitement amongst your team when they hear, “Meeting”

Kindle the Spark within

blog-banner03

Most Indian festivals are a spectacle of lights. They exhibit brightness, vigour and celebration.

For ages the lighting of a lamp has been a sacred symbol. A symbol to connect with the light within. The spark that keeps us lively, bright and healthy.

Darkness, on the other hand symbolizes depression, dullness, and decay.

So is life about stark light and dark, or the shades in-between?

Does light switch off one day to bring complete darkness and switch on another day to bring total brightness suddenly?

The distance between one end of brightness and darkness can be a lifetime, or a fraction of a second.

You may gradually achieve what you set out for and feel accomplished only towards your advanced years of life, or you could see your entire world crash to pieces in a matter of seconds.

So, what purpose do these festivals serve in our lives?

While it’s true, that each of us can find our happiness or sadness within, these festivals do create opportunities.

They provide an occasion to recharge, restart, or reboot.

While the external light provides the ray of hope, it doesn’t have the firepower to keep it burning till its next arrival.

The fire has to be kindled from the spark within.

Happy Diwali!

Standards

Sometimes I wonder what the world would be if there were no benchmarks. No expectations from a person, product, or service.

You treated each person afresh each time you met them, you tried out every product each time you tested every service as if you had no idea of what to expect.

Standards. The world lives by them. They help you set your expectations, decide in favour of or against a product or service, or grade them as per your choice.

In pure terms standards are neither poor nor good. They are what they stand for, what is expected of them, and what they deliver.

In the minds of people, these standards get classified in buckets as per their choices and preferences.

A foodie may be more concerned about the standard of food than the service at the eatery and therefore rates it high compared to someone who values the service equally or higher and therefore may disapprove of the standards of the eatery.

Standards in simple terms also mean consistency. It means the predictability of a product, service, or behaviour.

A lot has been talked about excellence. Excellence is not being outstanding. It is just beginning by having a consistency in your deliverables, and gradually raising them to a point of consistency.

And then excellence becomes a standard.
