Leadership is an invaluable commodity in any business or public agency. When one thinks of a business leader like Steve Jobs, or a political leader like Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi we remember them for a variety of reasons, including their strategic vision, their ability to inspire others, their knack for finding the right supporting cast, and their ability to persevere through challenging times. While management was certainly among their many talents, the first associative thought that comes to mind when someone mentions the name of historic figures like these isn’t necessarily that they were a great manager but that they were an exceptional leader.
In the wake of recent stories of brazenness of athletes like Lance Armstrong and executives like Rajat Gupta to perpetuate fraud and risk their livelihood, reputation and entire careers, the public and the media are mystified and the athletic and the corporate worlds have been shaken to the core. In his breakthrough book, The 12 Pillars of Project Excellence, Adil Dalal, the CEO of Pinnacle Process Solutions, Intl®, LLC, advises that for champions and for leaders, the formula for leaving an enduring legacy in the athletic and the corporate worlds is to focus on “how” they achieve the victory rather than on the victory itself.
“You are more than you can ever imagine” is my personal motto and belief. I truly believe that within any entity, including an individual, a team, a corporation or even a nation, exists a latent potential which is waiting to be discovered. A human brain has approximately 100 billion neurons and trillions of connections making it one of the most complicated structures in the universe. The brain has approximately 100 times more processing power than even a modern super-computer. Apart from our bodies, even the human spirit holds within it an amazing reservoir of highly potent energy which can transform corporations and even nations. Have you ever wondered why are we endowed with such amazing power? Why has such power been designed into our DNA? I am not sure of the answer yet, but I am quite positive that it is an immoral waste if we allow it to lay dormant within us for most of our lives. Unlocking this latent potential can truly transform this planet.

Dalal offers his years of experience to those willing to invest time and openness to lean project management methodology.

I recently read the book, The 12 Pillars of Project Excellence, by Adil Dalal. In his book, Dalal discusses the subject of learning from failures. In today’s corporate world, we often see failure as the opposite of success. In projects, failure is not meeting scope, time, cost, quality, resource or risk baselines. Depending upon the organizational culture and the criticality of the project, a failure may be tolerated or lead to termination of an individual.
Hate is one of most misunderstood human emotions of all. The emotion of hate is usually considered like an arrow with can be aimed at others to cause harm. However, the emotion of hate is not like an arrow, but is in fact, like a boomerang which if aimed at others with an intent to harm, will ultimately only come back more forcefully to the person who launches it.
