Develop your leadership

People are always confused about the concept of leadership. There are always some questions in the minds of managers regarding the mindset involved in the leadership.
One of the questions is whether leadership skills are innate or learned through various phases of life and the mindset involved in the leadership.

The truth is that if you are not a born leader, by working hard at it, you can get better day by day. If you change your mindset completely that the great leaders are not born as they might have worked hard through different phases of life which is very much evident by looking at the world's top leaders.

Cultural assumptions will also play a very crucial role in developing a if you dwell in that culture where you are being told that great leaders are born, which ultimately will develop a response and perception in your mind that one can't be molded into a leader over a period a time, that is exactly why we are seeing decrease in the transformation phase.
Now take the example of that culture where your colleagues believe you can be a leader and help you develop the skills you need, you will enthusiastically embrace the mantle of leadership. It might not be your goal to become a CEO or a top politician. But, regardless of your occupation, you will view yourself as a leader at home, at work etc.

I hope you might have got exactly what i am trying to tell you about the role of culture.

One more thing to discuss here is types of mindsets which does also play a very crucial role in developing yourself as people have always one of mindsets in them.
Fixed Mindset and
Growth Mindset

People with fixed mindset believe that they they can only go as far as their natural abilities will take them. They think talent, rather than hard work, is the fundamental component of success.
People with growth mindset believe that they can get better at what they do, that they have reservoirs of untapped potential. They realize that by working hard they make some incremental changes in their carriers and their lives.

I don't know which mindset you have, but we should always try to keep a growth mindset which will open all the golden doors for your success and will enable you to take a commanding role in your life.

Role Of Relationships

Relation play a very crucial role in one's life. Right from the birth till the end, the relations need to be nurtured and addressed like the small plants need the care. Actively we need to cultivate the habit of keeping the relations hot, active and growing.
Relationships are like the heavens on earth at around which we carry ourselves and at the same time get touched and cared with the role and influence of others. We pass through so many relations and even have to garner and create new relations on the daily basis. Love and trust being the basic essence of any relation, this is the only criteria on which the existing relations get halted and the newer ones come into action.

Sales Discounts

Recently visited a mall where in every store you could at least see 50% off on every item.I looked at so many items which were of interest to me and after looking at the price there was a major difference in the current sales price and the discounted price.
Looked at few jeans, the jean whose price was Rs 2200, now was available at Rs 1100. This tempted me to purchase few jeans, in fact purchased two jeans and a t shirt.After purchase compared the prices and came to realize that i have saved exactly Rs 2700.
But does quality remain same during these discount periods? I don't feel the same, in fact had a word with few people and they told me these are just marketing tactics in which customers are lured to purchase more and more.

Experience At Call Center

Guys you might have heard of Novel One Night At Call Center, while reading this novel interest was aroused in me to go for one night in call center to learn what exactly the call centers are all about. Before reading this novel during my graduation, i was also very fond of call centers and let me tell you very frankly i was getting fascinated by the people who are working in call centers.finally i took some time away and joined an International call center For few months in Chandigarh here finally i got aware of the general workings in call centers.Shift was totally night based and i had to spend my whole night in the call center from 9:30 pm t0 07:00 am in the morning.In those few days everything changed as my day became night and night became day.

Looking at the experience it was good one, spending my night time and interacting with the US Based people was so nice and enriching in every aspect. In the starting days i don't used to sleep in the day then as i was not able to sleep properly,at the same time i was not feeling well and active.One time what happened is that i was sleeping at 06:30 pm and suddenly some one woke me up, and you would be amazed by my reaction i just told what you are in the midnight,wandering here and there, and do you know what was his reaction.........sorry dear actually you are wandering in and around your much talked call center.
But anyways guys call center experience is very nice an you will remember the activities that you over the time go through during the peak timings.All the guys working in my office were professional and have joined the BPO as their full time Profession, people were MBA's MCA's , Btec's etc, in other words you can say the people over there were occupied with blend of capabilities and potentials.They were completely professional and looking very enthusiastic for the work, i interacted with so many people from diverse backgrounds and what i could found was that everyone is blessed with some in born capabilities and qualities,which if utilized properly could lead to the fulfillment of their respective goals and dreams.Leanings were immense from these few days spent in the call center,you need to be active in each and every aspect,it is not only calling to to the client but after calling how you note down that information and how you present that to make it final.As call center jobs are stereotyped by many classes of people stating very rude about the discipline in the call centers, but believe me i haven't seen anything like that, i was very overwhelmed by seeing the actuality..the discipline,rules and regulations were followed properly by all the people working in my call center whether they were my seniors or juniors.Team work concept was all around there leading to greater productivity and motivation.
Even the schedule for break was so strict which you can't imagine, you need to follow all these guidelines otherwise warning follows you via you corporate mail id.Surely i was fascinated by the working atmosphere in my call center but i don't what is in yours.

Finally In Amritsar as ASM.

Finally went to much awaited destination on DEC 07 2010 from Chandigarh.Right from my childhood days i was wishing to see the GOLDEN TEMPLE,but you know it was very impossible to come from Kashmir to this place. As i Did my MBA from Chandigarh so that was the moment when i thought it is time to move towards my destination spot.But being very near to Amritsar as was staying at Chandigarh it took about 3 years to go to Amritsar.My joy knew no bounds when i reached Amritsar seeing the place full of crowd and every one the move.As i had came to Amritsar for the purpose of job as was selected as Area Sales Manager (ASM) for a agricultural Company Vidhata Agrotech Pvt.Ltd, so reaching Amritsar fulfilled my dual purpose.
But initial experience in Amritsar was so so bad which really i could not have thought of as i was robbed of my cellphone full of contacts and messages of my near ones.This happened exactly at the entrance of GOLDEN TEMPLE where some one i crowd took my mobile off.I was totally over as this was the only source of contact with rest of my world like my family, friends and near ones.As now a days you just feed the numbers in your cellphone without ever trying to remember a single contact,same thing was with me, no contact on board except my Father and you know who? no need to tell this.
In order to come in touch with my friends in Chandigarh i logged into so many social networking sites and thank GOD was able to pull out some important contacts.
Also called one of my friends as i could remember only her No. regarding this issue.
Any ways it was totally a very bad initial experience in Amritsar , but after staying in Amritsar for few months what i could realize you could not find a better place to live in as compared to Chandigarh and no dought about Kashmir.
