causes of people and organization sub-optimal performance. In 2001 he

performance of people and organizations will move people and the country
to the right direction socially and economically. This will be an on
going challenge and our part in it is a sure way of “our purpose of
being”. Delivering value and Continuous and Never Ending Improvement (CANI)
is our beyond five years vision. The sky is the limit.
Q: What is your parting shot
inevitable because everything around us is changing. To manage this,
people and/or organizations have to change by developing their potential
which in many of us has hardly been tapped. Once realized and unleashed
we can achieve many of our dreams and ambitions. Negative attitude,
beliefs, bad and poor culture all inhibit our ability to realize our
inner potential and live satisfying lives.
