Of 100% of goals set, I wonder what % of them actually get completed? What is it that makes the difference between those who set off on a journey and those who complete it? And what difference does it make as to whether the goal is a big one or a small one?   I’m […]

Ritu Mehrish Article banner

Leaders are not superheroes; they may fail, falter and make mistakes, and it’s important to have an open conversation when they need support.   Behind every successful leader in any field, be it in sports, politics, entertainment or even in the corporate world, there are hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of ‘followers’.
