Why I wrote the book

Working today is tough, more so in a big company.

Each day brings with it a fresh set of challenges.  We put in long and hard hours to address them and to master them.

But are these one-of-a-kind situations really different?

A detached look will reveal while the specifics of the situations will change from one to the next, at their core they all raise the same set of demands on us.

How to Escalate an Issue?
What to do when a Senior does not respond?
What to do when the Boss says No?
How to reduce Meetings and Conference Calls?
How to manage your Weakness at Work?
How to improve your EQ at work? 

These seemingly everyday situations have potential.

Handled inefficiently, they could lead to delay, frayed relations between departments, and the most common – the need for boss’s intervention.

We usually consider these situations as part of learning. And do it, as we see others do it.

But what if there was a different and a better way of handling these situations?

What if there was a default way, a kind of uniform key, to address these situations, so that they don’t take up much time, every time?

Over the course of a decade and a half, I learned some things and got better at some things. Now when I reflect on my experience, I find, I had a specific approach when dealing with these situations.

And this approach delivered. When I reflect on my ‘Yes!’ moments at job, many of my fond memories are of these situations.

In this book, I refer to these situations and suggest a course of action for each.

Paul Abraham, COO, IndusInd Bank

“I received the book yesterday. Thank you so much for sharing this gem of a book. I just couldn’t put it down from the moment I started reading this. This book should be part of every organization’s internal library and must be promoted extensively. In fact, I started using some of the concepts from this morning with miraculous results and speed. Will recommend it strongly once I am through with it. Once again let me put it on record – This book is a professional game changer and will be a ready reckoner that will stay with me for life.”
