Matthieu Ricard: The habits of happiness


Right Tool and Methodology


Companies who have adopted six-sigma have died like Motorola. This is famous resistance from non six-sigma managers. I believe noting is wrong in methodology, just implementation may be wrong. Many times discussion has happened on why six sigma doesn’t work. Still I want to list down reasons again.


Leader vs Change Agent


I believe it is easy to be leader but difficult to be a change agent. Leader can work on vision and alignment of people to that goal. Having end to end visibility, skill to identify gap and willingness to change is needed to drive change. Many leaders wish changes will happen. However, nothing changes on ground. Obama is best example.

Power and Loyalties:


Both are linked. Countries are best example. North Korea is showcase of loyalties. People showed emotions on road when their leader died. Power is well centralised and in one hand. Similar is example of other dictator based systems. On other hand, countries like Pakistan are facing disintegration risk as no single man can claim that he has power.

Work Life Imbalance


‘News came from company email that employee aged 32 expired because of heart attack. It is shocking at such young age, people are falling to stress. Competition has increased in all facet of life. Managing competition at work and health front is tough job. Growth is not coming easily in global slowdown. Systems are overtaking human excellence.
