This is the month we celebrate Freedom in India. Our Independence Day. The day which commemorates our freedom from oppression under a foreign rule. To me, the day also stands for freedom in every sense – the freedom for individuals to be who they are, the freedom of self-expression. We are a land of diverse people, cultures – and yet, when the question of orientation arises – we are a long way away from freedom.READ MORE

Say psychology and a closely associated word for most is Sigmund Freud. Freud developed the psychoanalytic theory that has been the starting point for almost all major personality theories.

Personality psychology is the study of human nature. Personality psychologists define personality in different ways. However, they all agree that personality exists – as a set of stable structures and recurring processes inside each of us that brings a certain unique coherence to our thoughts and actions, differentiates us from others, and can be used to understand our behaviors.
The word personality is often used to communicate two different meanings: (1) the impression that someone creates on others; and (2) the “true” inner nature of a person. The first meaning refers to personality from the view of the observer, or personality in terms of the “reputation” of an individual.READ MORE

In the midst of finding ourselves in a second year of lockdown, isolation, stress and fear, it is so important to take stock of our own emotional well-being. As we worry about our loved ones in particular and the world around us in general, we must also stop to focus on ourselves. As someone who traveled frequently before the pandemic, the inflight safety instructions of "Put your own oxygen mask first before helping others" keeps coming to mind ... self-care is a must if we are to be strong for others!

A few years ago, I discovered Finding Mastery, the Podcast created and run by Michael Gervais. Dr. Gervais calls himself a High Performance Psychologist. The podcast itself features “high performing” athletes, businesspeople, researchers. Gervais’s incisive questions take us deep into the mindset and practices that are enabling these individuals to be at their peak performance.
If you have read Satya Nadella’s Hit Refresh, you will remember Satya sharing how he invited Dr. Gervais to work with him and the Microsoft SLT to help them become a higher performing team.
The quest for high performance is a competition with self. To be the best of what you can be is aboutREAD MORE
