What the bloody hell??? I have the full right to be unfair…
This is how he spoke during the first five minutes of his interaction with our class. We were awestruck and just could not guess what would happen in the future. Dr. Sindhwani is a personality of difference. He is a person who starts by bashing you and ends by bashing you up. But in the end, you will find you have started liking that person.
He is our “Principles of Management” professor. He has an aura of command and he acts tough. I have an inherent feeling that he is very soft inside. The first teaching that he imparted to all of us is: “All of you are managers having 20 years of experience. Management cannot be taught; there is nothing to be termed right or wrong in management. Everything is relative. “
Here I write down a few points from his classes which really impressed me.
1. Enjoy your work.
Why not? If one does not enjoy his/her work, then how can he/she even think about performing well. He has teaching experiences in different countries across the globe. He has taught in the U.S, Europe and Australia. He told us that we are no less than any body in this world. God has given us a nice platform in the form of IIFT and a chance to perform well and learn. If we cannot do well, then it’s the fault of non other than ourselves.
2. Always set higher targets.
Dream high and aspire to reach for the stars. Have confidence and start working. If you set your targets for the stars, then only you would reach and grab hold of the moon.
3. Play the Game only to WIN.
Why to waste your time if you are playing for the sake of participation only??? Winning or losing does not really matter; but what matters is your attitude and your desires or aspirations. Try your best to win… Winning is not everything; it is the only thing.
4. Don’t accept injustice.
There is a limit to everything. Don’t shy away from speaking against injustice. You should have your self respect and be bold if you are correct. At the same time, be bold enough to accept your mistakes.
5. Managers should be a part of the solutions; NOT the problems.
You are supposed to make things simpler not tougher. Management is an art and there is no excuse called “I dint have time”.
These are few of the main points that i jotted down so that i would put them here on my blog. I will be glad if you comment upon this post.
Cheers.. More blogs to follow.
