An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

One moment to the next

To stay centered in equanimity

Is to be aware of the self in this now

Are we present in the moment?

Are we staying calm to understand

Change is the only constant…

The so called high tides, give in only to recede in time.

The dunes speak of sifting sands of time

Where there were mountains there are plains today…

What seems impossible becomes possible in time.

All is meant to move on

Problems well they come and go

Nothing lasts forever

That is why life is so precious

And every moment must be well lived.

From one moment to next!

Waking Up To A New Day!

We are the thoughts we think,

We become believers of our ways

What we do today has always a reason.

But every dawn is full of hope

Awaken to sense its brightness

Care and accept the vividity

Allow space for light to enter.

Much changes in doing the above..

Wake up grateful for this new day!

Wake up hopeful of this new day!

Learnings in Life.

I loved these lines …

On learning in life.

Life is blessed

In valuing the gifts we have,

In cultivation of skills we are enriched

And life is transformed in the choices we make.

Life is full of infinite learnings

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Life is how we make it!

Cultivate space…

As we cultivate a space

Within and around us

To listen and observe

To understand and care.

We access the underlying wisdom

As we allow ourselves to notice

The ways of life and living

We come across fresh perspectives

When we allow ourselves to hear

The sounds of silence

We sense our feelings

We accept our emotions

And likewise..

We tune inwards a little more

In this conscious awareness

We practice…

To tap into our intuitive intelligence

In every cell of our being

Speaking through our senses.

To access the powers within.

All we need is to cultivate space.

The meditative, contemplative
The reflective & the restorative voices
There is a connective wisdom
In the sounds of silence
Emanating from you.
It is your precious inner self
Expressing itself.
Be mindful and attentive
Listen if you can,
Every once in a while.”
Embody the peace within.

On Team Management

Team Management

Today the world is expanding rapidly on many fronts inspite of shrinking communication time and reachability across the world…. the fact is, organizations are confronted with a multigenerational workplace.

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.

1. Acceptance

Accept there is a place for every one… be inclusive of the diversity… Accept that the differences are what is unique to the person and teams need people with diverse intelligence to take it to the next level. Every stage comes along with some learnings.

2. Acknowledge

Acknowledge the value of interdependence at work strengthening a culture of inclusiveness. Importance of co-operation in collaborative work cannot be stressed enough.

3. Allowance

Allow the expression of new ideas, suggestions and let it find listening ears no matter which team or who it comes from.

4.Appreciation

Appreciate and celebrate the work done, even the little wins help to motivate the team. Appreciation is an evolved method of correction.

5. Alignment

Align the set of achievable goals of teams with the mission & vision of the organization. More the alignment the faster and easier the channelling of communication by maintaining open communication greater the chance of successful endeavors.

6. Accountability is being accountable about to being able take responsibility at all times and own it.

As a Consultant with a deep interest in Wellness, at work this is what I facilitate day in and out especially so, in these uncertain times.

From applications of art and movements to creating space for dialogues to understand shifting mindsets & perspectives I have been mentoring diverse teams at work places.

Every team afterall, is made of unique individuals but the issues faced as a team are often similar.As a result of interaction and the scope of work different patterns of team dynamics are created.

If you have been responsible to manage teams to collaborate effectively….

Do share what kind of challenges have cropped up in your teams and how have you managed them.

Would love to understand more.
