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.

“Trust is something we have to earn by giving trust in return”

The trust is just like a seed which is buried beneath the soil and it needs regular watering, sunlight, air…etc. for the normal growth. I haven’t used the term “nourishment” here in place of growth because nourishment is somewhat more than normal growth. It requires proper care and maintenance towards the growing seed till it develops into a plant. And even after that it still requires some efforts for its long life.

Trust, though phenomenal, is the building block of every relationship we make in our life. We say that 

“I have gained his confidence now I don’t need to bother”  

but it’s the common mistake we all commit very often.

Relationships are not like any writ or application or any testimonial that you have signed it for once and then your responsibility is over. And it is kept safe somewhere. You have to maintain that confidence which you have gained earlier. For maintaining a relationship you need to nourish your bonding with your companion (be it your spouse, friend, boss, ally etc).

In the course of our busy life we somehow forget to spare some time for our close ones. This further deepens the roots of alienation in the long run. And when we realize it ….it’s always too late. And as it is said that time will make things settle. It is the time only that ruins them. So be careful in diverting your time.

                                                              “Trust is something we have to earn by giving trust in return” 

At times it becomes a critical situation for us to believe on our close fellows. Though we love them care for them and know it better that they are never going to harm us or betray , yet we become unsuccessful in when our trust is most essentially needed by them. Why? Why it happens? Where our senses go at that time and why we become desperate to verify the things?

                                                         This is where the relationships start moving at the verge of vanishing point. we have got two eyes ,two ears ,one nose a heart in company of the mind still we can’t sense the truth at times. This is the biggest drawback of the humans.(not all).

It’s better to give some space to others as well because it cannot be always you and just you. It’s difficult to look the things from someone else’s point of view but not impossible. Infact, it will take you closer to him\her and have a clear understanding of his\her vision. 

                         There are some people who have some issues with their partner but they don’t ever tell him/her and they feel proud enough that they know the truth and will never admit. It would have been alright if they kept it going this way but there is something else going on in such people’s mind. They show their arrogance pride and pretend that they are just fine, though they are getting disturbed every moment. So why to commit such stupidity and hurt yourself? This way they prove themselves the miniature before the other person because they don’t have the guts to discuss the issue together and sought it out. And still they say that “ I trust you”. What kind of trust it is? It’s actually the illusion which they create for themselves and ruin their life in self ego. It ‘s better to forgive other’s mistakes and accept the regrets they show before you than to spoil the entire life in keeping that secret like something buried inside you ad pretend that “I trust you and have no problems with you”.

Life is beautiful and the relationships are the essence In it. Its not that difficult actually that we make it on our own. Change your vision and welcome the world.

                                                  “time might turn up again for you but the life once gone ,cannot”.

So live the moments and let others live it beautifully in your company. Trust yourself first and listen to your inner soul then commit any action
