The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. - Mark Twain US humorist, novelist, short story author, & wit (1835 - 1910)
Just joined the Hub and will be lurking, to the best of my ability given the short amount of free time I will have. As I discover more I will join various groups and start to engage with others so far so good!
In this life, we are tasked with several responsibilities. Some we own and are solely ours while others we acquire or are chosen by us. Throughout the course of my career, I've had the unique privilege and opportunity to be involved with both large and small teams. I understand what it means to be on a team and can work collectively to increase productivity, build morale, develop a game plan and meet a predefined target.
I haven't posted for a while. Like so many others my work days are getting longer and I have been doing a lot of travelling. Always a good time to think...
We are in the midst of a global downturn. There is nothing new in this we have experienced financial downturns before and we will face them again in the future. Like everything in life this is just a normal part of cycles; this drives rebirth and change. From challenge comes new opportunity and new optimism. What I sense is different this time is the lack of visionary thinking and the lack of optimism.
As you might have already guessed avalok is not my given name. It is my pen-name.
Am 52, have managed to remain single in a highly conformist & traditional Indian society.
Not because of any particular reasons or traits. I just wanted to be the "free"est person in the world.
Not easy, right?
I am a seeker...seeking what? ....dunno...may be I am seeking a purpose.
But while meandering through this life of mine,even though I have not found what I actually want , I learnt a few important and useful lessons.

If you voted in the World Leadership Gurus Top 30, the Hub's founder, Phil Dourado, came 14th this year (2012), up three places from 17th last year. The organisers say it is "because of the originality and impact of your work" that Phil was put in the Top 30 in the first place. And that means this Hub and the award-winning corporate versions we run for large companies. For more on how a private corporate version of The Hub works, email: email@example.com
