Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Some dangerously interesting business titles

When highly respected Subroto Bagchi was speaking on TV the other day, I was amused to see his title. It read as Gardener. I could relate somewhat, a business leader of his stature can only be expected to nurture what's around. How appropriate, I thought. Cisco likewise, has a Chief Globalisation Officer. Ron McDonald, the mascot of of McDonald's , is believed to be called as Chief Happiness Officer by McDonald's.

Not every position in the world has such undergone such a profound thinking exercise.

At a later day, I was reminded of the old days of the Soviet Union. A person could be called Fourth Assistant Secretary to the Chief Vice Minister or something equally weird. There was no way you could perhaps understand what such titled gentleman (gentleperson?) could be doing for a career.

Can you believe, the top boss of AOL match making service is called CEO of Love! Also, that the main organiser of the highly awaited Berkshire Hathway's annual meeting is believed to be called Director of Chaos. A CEO is believed to be calling his job title as Difference Maker. Somewhat like a telephone operator calling himself/herself as Director of First Impressions.What about the doorman at the famous hotel being called as Door Keeping Executive or even Welcome Experience Manager?.

FROM THE 'SETS' OF THE MOVIE 'GANDHI'

I took this picture from a train as it ambled its way over the bridge on the river Son near Patna (Exact location Koilwar or Koelwar as you choose to spell it)
Discerning folks will recall the scene in the movie 'Gandhi' where a steam loco driven train halts on this bridge(from where this picture is taken) and passengers, including Gandhiji go down to the river. It is a very touching scene as Gandhiji notices a poor lady trying to cover her body with whatever little clothes she could afford and Gandhiji quietly letting go of a cloth that was on his shoulder so that the flow of the water leads the cloth to the lady. I have crossed this bridge so many times and it feels so serene and calm at this place.
Only that this is not the movie set, but the location of one of the historical experiences of …
