Three Ways to Actually Engage Employees - Michael C. Mankins - Harvard Business Review

Three very powerful tips to engage employees.

Great talent can be teamed, need to be teamed. Only when
‘teamed’, the talent remains great! It all boils down to ownership.

More often, ‘ownership’ is more of textbook gyaan, not from
heart! And, employees don't feel it, as leaders don’t mean it. Organizations
struggle with 360-degree feedback, when the world is moving to eNPS. The three
tips could make organizations and leaders truly transformational, at a holistic
level! Our obsession with monthly and quarterly performance makes it tough to
focus on long term.

PS: Nobody washes a rental car! Why not? Wash the car, for
heaven sake! Even your own car, financed or ‘free’, is not your own car. Are we
not just trustees?

How Should Service Be Done?

How Should Service Be Done?

When an elderly devotee prayed to elucidate this point Sathya Sai Baba immediately asked him, “Suppose you were walking in a forest and a thorn pricks your leg what would you do?” The devotee said that he would remove the thorn from his leg. And then Baba asked, "How would you do it?" 
The devotee was rather confused and said "Swami, obviously with my hand." Then Baba said "Why would you do it? The hand removes the thorn instantly from the leg because the moment the thorn pricks the leg, the hand also feels the pain. The legs and the hand are all part of one body and every part of the body feels the pain. So too, the entire world is the body of God and when any part of this world feels pain or suffers, every other part should feel it in the heart and should respond to it, just as the hand responds to the thorn in the leg.
This is the way service should be done with the feeling of Oneness.

Music is God

ILAYARAJA On not reaching saturation point even after scoring music for thousands of songs…

“ The reason is simple. It is not my property. It is not my mental concept or presentation or for that matter, my effort. It (music) comes all by itself and I give it to others. Only when I harbor the thought that I have accomplished all this will this question of what will I do next arise. I do not have that thought at all. It comes all by itself and therefore, I give it as I receive it”

God's Form

Many imagine that God will appear before them in response to their worship (Yagnas). These are illusions, merely imagination. What ultimately manifests before you is the nameless, formless Lord. In reality, God does not have any one specific form.
