HOW FAR WILL YOU ADVANCE IN YOUR CAREER/YOUR BUSINESS?

I am often asked during mentoring engagements as to how far would a promising Executive advance in his career? I would immediately respond by using the acronym “PAC” which stands for:

  • POTENTIAL– A function of your
    i. Intelligence, sharpness, mental alacrity etc. which are largely congenital
    ii. Core Knowledge acquired formally/informally and
    iii. TRP Skills which effectively translates your Knowledge in to Performance
  • ASPIRATION – A function of your volition, your motivation to advance in your career, in your life. I have over the years observed a direct correlation between proficiency in TRP Skills and Performance. There is a circular relationship between Potential and Aspiration as one feeds the other – increased aspiration encourages you to acquire greater knowledge and TRP Skills and increased potential drives you to aspire for greater growth.
  • COMMITMENT – With all the potential and aspiration, you still need to commit yourself to the relentless pursuit of excellence. Here too, the TRP Skills provide you the impetus to rapidly, efficiently and confidently apply your skills in real life as your performing capability rises well above the ordinary.

While most functionaries tend to put in diligent efforts to update their core knowledge, little effort is directed to acquiring, enhancing and practicing TRP Skills. And this creates a gap or even a gulf between Potential and Performance.

Our Workshops endeavor to substantially enhance your PAC – objectively, systematically in a life long pursuit.

The most common sense filled workshop I attended in the recent past. The concept of Meeting Jockey is really good and will definitely help in making meetings more productive.
