Off late I have learned that writing is much more powerful tool to communicate than speak. In the era of Whats-app & FB we have forgot to write even to our close ones. To write something means we have to take out some time & think & that's what we are fast losing. I try to make out some time & write down my thoughts & share & especially when you are addressing to your team as a boss or a leader whatever you call it, writing make the job much easier.
In the times when insecurity about carrier & job is all we see around, its very much important to make your team understand what their boss thinks about them as well towards organizations values. I am not a great thinker or a wise man but whatever little I have learned in my journey as part of my past organization or at Sanjeevani, its tough to be a boss! To stood to the expectations of everybody around , may it be your client or customer & lastly your team mates, as you have nobody to lean on & expect. What I feel is to take your team mate in confidence & share your expectations time to time, in a language which they understands does help to ease out the pressure. And what better time than yearly appraisals to share such feelings! Its not how much you earn or the turnover you make in the form of money, but how less turn over you have with your team mates decides success of any organization & for that the boss has very vital role to play. real estate was & is never famous for its values towards human relations yet again there are humans only in this industry also & so its individuals approach to the work which makes the difference.
In one such try instead giving increments as per the whim or by just personal opinion , I have tried to make my team mate write down few things about themselves as well the team they are part of & then balancing all the fronts made the increments. You can not satisfy everybody at a time & that's why again the dialogue is important between the team & the leader; so wrote down to my team along with their increment check & sharing the same with you as I too can improve from the sharing!

“Be with a leader when he is right, stay with him when he is still right, but, leave him when he is wrong.” ...Abraham Lincoln
By now you all know how much your boss loves quotes from not just the celebrities but from the people who have some brain & who have proved it that they have brain! I am sure the above quote from the great American President goes with my philosophy yet with a slight modification, if you love your leader for few good characteristics he has then before leaving him, try to change him! As to leave someone is the fastest & easiest way but to be with someone & with the differences, is what real test of our duty as well courage.
Its said that a new start requires no special day or date & it’s this time of the year can be one such & its applicable even for me as the team leader. I never claim that I am a perfect leader though I always try for becoming one! And don’t forget that each of us has a leader within; we just need to understand the leader within & let him prosper & rule us. So go ahead & step up in becoming senior by meaning the term is what my wish for you! And help others with what you have learned in the process of becoming senior.
