  • Leadership should be inside-out, not outside-in

    By Pratap Nambiar for Straits Times

    I was recently having lunch with two senior corporate leaders and I asked them both what they considered to be their biggest challenge in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. They thought about it seriously and the common response I summed up from different choice of words was “the challenge of continuously and effectively developing leaders”.

  • What is your state of being at work?

    By Pratap Nambiar

    What is your state of being? That was the question I was asked by my coach many years ago. It changed my life because I realized very quickly that what I do is driven by who I am, my state of being. And clearly, what I do is what produces my desired or undesired outcomes.

    This is a philosophical question that has been answered by the likes of Socrates and Aristotle, but it is not exactly what will help us when we are trying to cope with all the pressures of the everyday workplace.

  • Self-transformation through coaching clients

    By Pratap Nambiar

    As the year winds down, I did some serious reflection on my coaching business. I was on my way to completing five years and 5000 hours of coaching.

I also knew that my success as a coach depended to quite some extent on the coach-ability of potential clients. So I took lots of care to assess them to ensure that they would be able to work with me and vice versa in a trusting way that was free of judgment and focused on actions to shape the future.

  • Characteristics of “engaging” leadership

    Despite the proven correlation between employee engagement and sustainable business growth, the former often does not get as much attention as it should. An ongoing study by Aon Hewitt of organisations that score highly on employee engagement measurements while performing better than their peers, business-wise, attributes such dual success to the presence of ‘engaging leaders’ throughout different levels of these organisations.

    A blog post on HBR.org describes some of the characteristics of such leaders and how organisations that work at making engaging leadership a part of their culture do so. We’d like to list some of the key takeaways from the above-mentioned blog post.
