Leadership demands tough decision making : someone has to tell people what to do, ensure to hold people to their obligations ( as many forget to do it on their own !), be frank about the consequences if actions are not taken as expected – And under such circumstances, it is not really a sweet and rosy role to be a leader.

I believe, most successes are failures turned inside out !
Performance assessment times are a very difficult period to go through for any committed employee. I cater to the Office automation industry and I fill up their vacant positions in Sales and Marketing. Recently, I recommended a candidate who was rejected in the first round of interview by my client company/ employer.

Ask anyone within industry experience and they will tell you the same thing: a phone and access to a resume database and you can start selling yourself as an agency recruiter.

Several years ago I walked into my favorite bookstore and was fascinated by a book on the shelf.What caught my eye was the bright orange cover and the band of duct tape across the cover. The book was Chip and Dan Heath’s first book titled “Made to Stick.” Since then I have been looking forward to reading their other works. It is no different for their newest work titled “Decisive.”
