Some people have better judgement than others. But what sets them apart? Most people would say intelligence – but that doesn’t account for the abundance of very smart people who continually make very bad decisions. Judgement is actually at the core of a leader’s ability to lead his/her people. ...

Leadership is a journey and Threefish understands every leader is in the process of writing their own leadership story – but is this based on fantasy or reality? One way we help leaders distinguish between “what I think of me” and “what you think of me” is to get honest and objective feedback from others.

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

Leadership drives impact. There is a direct relationship in leadership driving engagement and engagement driving performance. 360o feedback surveys have for long been used as a tool for measuring a leader’s behavior and performance.

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. Carl Jung, a contemporary of Freud, developed his analytic psychology at the same time. They came together for a period of time but soon parted ways as their perspectives began to diverge.READ MORE

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!

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.
