Confessions of an Introvert!

I recently got approached by someone to write a book about my Journey. It was tempting, but I realized that it would take a lot of time and effort.
But I do have a lot of experiences, learnings, and insights that I can share.

Today I am sharing about my experience of accepting myself as an introvert, being unapologetic about it and leveraging it to succeed. It took time, but it happened.

Today, when I take sessions, a lot of participants do share that being an Introvert makes it difficult to network, or build visibility. To that I say, being Authentic matters.

Encouraging failure as a part of growth at workplace

We have this # culture where #success is admired and appreciated and on the opposite #failure is criticized and makes the person feel ashamed about it. Often, it’s not just the act of failing that people are afraid of, it is actually the consequences. But we need to understand that if there is success, failures will obviously be there.

Even if we acknowledge that failure is necessary for growth, the tricky part is bringing it into a business setting, where the entire objective is the success of the #organization.

Coined as a phenomenon where employees resign to their KRAs and do not stretch beyond them, it actually has 2 perspectives to it. While one perspective is lack of motivation, innovation and enthusiasm at the workplace, another perspective is the personal life balance which employees focus on. While on one side, it results in employees not engaging in citizenship behaviors at the workplace like no more staying late, showing up early or attending non-mandatory meetings. It also means employees spending more time following their passion and achieving work life alignment.

There’s more to people than labels- Rise of non-binary pronouns and their significance

 It would not be wrong to say that there has been a significant shift around us in the past few years about the visibility and acceptance for the LGBTQIA+ people but as a community we still lack somewhere when it comes to a deeper understanding of diversity and inclusion and the little actions or gestures that actually make a lot of difference for these people. The most notable one is the use of gender-neutral or non-binary pronouns. It has become very common today to see pronouns in people’s email signatures and social media bios.
