Caught off guard!

It was 8:45 pm and darkness had spread its myriad tentacles, unaware, on the summer skies, casting its achromatic gloom on the residents of the city. I was returning from a training session in my little red Toyota Yaris YR feeling gloated about being successful in my venture when the unforeseeable occurred.  As I had... Continue Reading →

Inner Perspectives

A power often underestimated. A gesture that elicits gratitude and enhances performance. A reinforcement resorted to frequently by effective leaders. An inexpensive token that fetches rich outcomes.

It’s my hard earned money!

We are all visited by our relatives every now and then or once in a while. As guests, sometimes, we feel that our hospitality is taken for granted and the efforts we take to make them feel comfortable is overlooked. There was this occasion when a very close kith and kin of mine paid me... Continue Reading →
