Values and beliefs that was so far held by the world are finding new definitions and its difficult to catch up with the changing trends. New words of communication are coined every day and the generations suddenly finds themselves alien to each other.
So for organizations to acclimatize to a changing world, the old patterns of thoughts and mindsets need fresh perspective…
Time and again a revision of what’s redundant or what cannot work in a fast changing world needs identification but with discernment as there is much wisdom garnered in the experiences of life and living.
Here are 6 A’s worth imbibing in work places to sustain teams and evolve for the better.
