Future goals – Training sessions to bring humans back to thinking & innovation

Another day spent in finding out ways to improve your ways of working. And we are heading towards continuous improvement journey. With extreme automation, standardization, simplification of processes, asset management, career progression, growth opportunities, re-skilling, professional development and what not, we are going to make a difference. I guess this is no more an alien thing for any one of us from Gen Y at least. For the entire year this becomes our target, which is highlighted in every single power point presentation and will be a part of each and every meeting.

No matter what goes into and bangs your head, but you have to take this sip by sip. And even if you are not perceiving it, you have to believe that yes you are on the road map of improving or rather enhancing your skill sets. Why? Because, your ppt. says so. You are so organised in your efforts. Your Line Manager has told you that this year you are improving, but your engagement is quite low, your performing skills are not up to the level of expectation and so on.

Wow, after spending entire year inside the meeting rooms, fighting for Video Conferencing rooms, getting time slot booked, from where do u get time to think upon engagement? Do we actually realize how many faces we are left familiarized with, after spending an year at the organization? When I joined, about an year, i met few during my induction. We used  to get some time to hang around, not to talk about face book updates or whatsapp jokes, but about company’s growth in the industry, learning from past experiences, best practices, leading technology trends, how to keep engaged with work, how to manage time. And actually, this all took place over a cup of coffee and ginger tea at times. Imagine, just a cup of coffee in our normal cafeteria. So much of useful content we vented out and shared mutually that actually helped us do things better if not differently.

Now, having spent more than a year inside meeting rooms, back to back meetings piled up like connecting flights or metros, sleepless nights for the presentation stuff, fighting and negotiating with peers like in a vegetable market to pull out the content, wasting weekends over vodka or whisky just to get a hangover to have an escape from those nightmares, is all what we call a branded life “corporate life”. On top of it when you present your efforts before your boss, he has ready to throw sentence “ I am not convinced”. Sending out all bullshit mailer and newsletters, and then spend your life in making and redefining your strategy to increase readership and quality is what is your biggest milestone.

Organizations should think why is there a lack of innovation. Why we spend so much into tool creation and processes development. And none of the tools are so apt as google. There are 1000 of ideas into the idea box, we keep saying please share your ideas, suggestions. but have we achieved any thing ? Have we been able to take it to implementation?  No, it is is still pending for approval. And then after few years, we need to clean up the redundant ideas.

Has anyone ever realized, what is people connect? It will not take more than one open discussion and meeting just at a town hall or over a cup of coffee.  We talk about Robotics Process Automation, where work will be automated and we will have enough bandwidth to do work. Actually it is true, but not everywhere. Only the top levels gets benefited. Down the line it is crap. In the race of creating robots, has anyone ever given it a thought that we humans are turning into robots. We are losing our ability to think and innovate. Because we don’t have time to think. Time is not very far of when there will be a need for bringing human touch in humans. There will be training sessions to get back to human mode of thinking.

It just requires an attitude, a mindset to challenge and go beyond the boundaries. This is the real strategy and only you can execute it.

it can happen anywhere anytime with anyone…..

How contented it feels when you get something just by the luck or the wish of the deciding jury up in the heaven. It is like you never had a wish for and you never wanted to have it.. but you are getting closer to it eventually. There are certain interconnecting points in life when you don’t understand why is It happening or how come it is happening. But you just welcome it. or even if you don’t what else you are left out with? What is wrong and what is right no one knows. It’s just that do not dare to act in ways as to dig holes for others. Never give a disparaging jerk to anyone’s heart. Rest you are the master of your thoughts. Don’t stop at every station and decide what the world would say. Just give a damn to your bubbling ideas. What could happen? May be, you don’t get what you want. So what you could at least enjoyed the process through it.

It takes ages to know someone deeply, correctly and exactly. Do you think so? You can never know what the human mind might think and respond at. Then why we spend so much of energy in guessing the people and their attitudes? Why not to stick a beautiful smile at our face, keep your heart humble, shine in your eyes and pleasing ears. No one is going to produce a lion’s roar at the first meeting unless you give them the reason to. Then why to think for their attitude and why not manipulate your own attitude and behavior?

It can make paralyzed man alive if you put on a beautiful smile on your face and lend a helping hand and the most generous heart to let people share their feelings with you. Spend quality time and see the world will be your friend. There are people who are good enough at finding the smile on angry face as well. You can love to anyone anytime anywhere.

A matter of perspective to think beyond what we are doing

A lovely weather, the cool breeze, the scintillating drizzles of rain and the lush green natural grass… all sum to give you a fantastic feeling. It’s a wow feeling. what we say? lets go out for a walk, let’s go out for a coffee, give a break to office etc. Such an amazing and mood swinging is the impact of nature that you undergo a drastic transformation within seconds. We all better know that there is no alternative for a beautiful nature which is gifted to us. it is the best ointment to heal our hectic lives which is being crippled every day.

But, why we do not care for this lovely source of happiness? we are continuously destroying it by our disastrous activities. throwing garbage on the roadsides, automobile exhausts, indiscriminate use of natural resources, invention of harmful chemicals and products manufactured out of them and a reckless attitude towards conservation of the natural life on earth. we are so much engrossed into our day to day stuff that we are ignoring the real happiness and its natural source. this is the major reason for several horrifying situation on this lovely planet. no one would dare to imagine the planet where there is no cool breeze, beautiful flora and fauna still we are not in a mood to change our attitude.

A serene environment is enough to change your unhappy mood and it directly impacts your relationships with people around you. so many of your problems would be solved and your time would be saved. instead os spending your precious time and money on conspiracies and selfishness, one should try to get in touch with the nature.

I wish there could be some whats app or facebook like apps with the almighty so that he could ping us that how he feels over our stupid acts. How it would feel if the beautiful tree says thanks when someone waters it. It’s just the matter of perspective. As human beings, we must try to think differently to make nature feel proud that yes we are the supreme creation of this planet.
