Gift of Gentleness

A gift of gentleness

Could never go wrong

Such is the strength of sublimity.

When wrapped in the warmth of kindness

When sent as a gift in goodwill

And sealed with heartfelt love and gratitude.

Soft is the way of the gentle at hearts.

Soft is the strength of the soul within.

How gentle are you?

Art of Management

Here are 5 R’s of Coaching

& Conflict Resolution.

Recognize
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So a team or an organization is more than just the number of individual members put together.

Reframe

To bring different factions into consideration and consensus it is necessary to reframe the issues in a more inclusive way that speaks for one and all. It is important to validate the needs and apprehensions of all to find common ground.

Reconcile:
All are parts of an interdependent system.
So every move impacting one will impact one and all.

Remember :
The strength is in the interconnects.

So think beyond the immediate self and work towards envisioning & understanding the larger picture.

Resolve :

Be inclusive and expansive.

Be mindful to be positively impactful.

In every organization whenever there is a need to examine the pressing issues of individual human nature and/ or behaviour in a team and come to a resolution, it is mindful to be aware of the surfacing of hidden dynamics at play in communication and its impact on personal /professional relationships.

Any mediation is after all a process of balancing the ways of engaging, managing and productively finding resolutions that can help make a positive difference towards peace and goodwill.

Unbox & Connect the dots.

Buyer seller: A partnership plan.

Subscription model successes and failures are a well-known story in the leading business enterprises ranging from entertainment to e-commerce & healthcare sectors. But often companies are flummoxed when it comes to retaining their existing subscription box model in time . It is certainly a challenge to keep it going!

Why they work in the first place?

They may work if there is perceived value and convenience to the customers. And for the company, if there is revenue generation through repeat sales.

Here is where intelligent pricing matters. ( ensure it feels like a good and worthy bundle for the price of one from the Customers perspective.)

Here are a few suggestions from a company perspective on reworking the Box model.

Work on building a long term relationship with existing customers.

Chalk a customer-centric approach.

At times the surprise element can backfire.

Call and build awareness of the products and its USP beforehand.

Use the Customers who are satisfied for referrals socially.

Innovations in service and delivery can help.

Let the Customers know the products are service-oriented and not sales oriented. It charges their emotions towards a sale.

Companies perhaps offer treats tickets offline events and give some coupons freebies or opportunities for them to be brand loyal.

Work on building a community of people who get a product to try at a discount or offer a discounted first-month price. Will be a great chance to understand market demand.

Increase the customers’ perception of the utility of the products by creating greater awareness.

When an online purchase is done
Offer a subscription box at the point of sale with an offer and an explanation of how the company is doing good for the world at large.

But remember
User growth may eventually decline in the case of predictive products.

Keep it fresh and interesting.

Make sure to check complacency from employees once the monthly boxes are shipped. As a company be genuinely interested to know if the box is making a positive difference to the customer. Insert a survey link or feedback suggestions for improving the service.

Initially, Customers often start off wanting to exact the full value of the price paid in terms of the products or services. Like fitness subscriptions and then there is a waning interest unless the customer is kept engaged.

One of the proven flaws of the model is that it is suitable for certain Business and not for others. Like it may work where there is a service or product that is needed continuously but not for once in a while kind of demand products.

With too many entrants and the overkill that is visibly overwhelming to customers
Business models often need to keep improving their presentation, content, services and products and try exceeding the expectations of their registered clients for retention. In an extremely competitive market scenario, this is can be a double-edged sword.

There may also be waning interest of existing subscribers due to a perceived lack of control over the products delivered to them.

Financially is it viable?

This is a necessary question that a business must consider from time to time.

As in time, the user may prefer to choose between models that offer other likewise or similar category products.
And prefer only one among many such models after evaluating the benefits.

While every individual is different,
Customers may find the company idea of piecemealing or compiling all together redundant and may prefer to buy a one-off product that they actually need.
As simply sending something to a person continuously may make the product less wanted or needed in time.

With too many subscription models in the market, Customers cannot be conned as they are aware of the gameplan due to existing and already functional models
So the ‘why the model is good to buy’ is important to a seller to know and convey to the client always.

Time to rethink and unbox to connect the dots.

Embody Love

My personal mantra…

Live the life you love and love the life you live!

What happens when you embody love…

You reinforce the power of trust

You reiterate the value of life

You reinstate respect for life

Every life that is powered by love

Is tuned into deeper consciousness

Knowing there is always something more…

Than just the superficial nature.

Threaded interconnects that runs across

In this web of life and living.

Love connects us all

As we embody love

All roads leads home.

Such is the path of love.

Embody love!

Sense the peace within.

Soak in the serenity of silence

You can create your own calm

Stay free from strain and stress

Sense the peace within.

Inspite of the reigning chaos

Whatever happens around you

Hold on to your inner sense of calm

The solution is within you to know

Sense the peace within.

Celebration of Independence

May we always dance in independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem 

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom 

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random 

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom 🙂  

Happy Independence Day to all Indians all over the world!
