“What if every other aspect of my life is doing well apart from my job? Like, I wake up every morning feeling demotivated, the roles are so monotonous and I cannot see any hope for growth. My colleagues here have been around for more than two decades. We all go to them for guidance; we […]

“Some team members just won’t get the job done well or get it done on time that’s why I do not delegate” Said the supervisor. “Is the issue the people or the process?” I asked. She posed for a minute. “I think it’s both” She said. This discussion was born out of a training discussion […]
