Just a misclassification of independent contractors resulted in a seven-figure settlement…See More

Human resources metrics are a very important tool in measuring efficiency

HR metrics are often overlooked or underrated in many organizations. This is a mistake, because HR metrics are very important in assessing the efficiency of the HR policies, programs and endeavors. At the heart of the idea of HR metrics is that whatever is taken up for assessment or implementation has to be measurable. As in any other area of management, HR too has to go by the idiom that what cannot be measured cannot be managed.The ability for being quantified or measured is something that…See More

Virtual teams need to be understood if they have to be managed well

Virtual teams are an offshoot of the developments that have taken place at the workplace on account of the confluence of globalization and the emergence of technologies.

Research and practice need to go hand in hand

Research and practice are two sides of a coin. Most actions result from thoroughly and well carried out research, but somehow, research has largely been confined to being just an academic activity that is carried out for satisfying the professional urges of the researchers. Translating research into practice, however, is very important, because research in itself does not mean much in the real world if what is obtained from it is not implemented. Likewise, many practical, real world products…See More

Achieving new peak performance with the Coherent Performance model

We have heard of sportsmen and musicians being in their “zone” every now and then. This is when their creative energies are at their peak. This is when they perform to such levels that it exceeds their own expectations or capabilities. In other words, this is the peak performance.

How does one reach this zone? Is it possible only for the people with special talent, or is it something you and I too can achieve? Is it a process or a kind of creative paroxysm?
