14. Here are six qualities you need to "surf the waves of
change" (or what we need to be "response-able") and
ways to develop each one:
1. Energy: Stay rested to keep your batteries charged. This way change doesn?t find you running on empty. We
all need an energy reserve, just as much as we need an emergency fund in the bank.
2. Creativity: Find ways to get the creative juices flowing on a daily basis ? draw, paint, sing, dance, set your
spirit free! Creativity requires freedom of expression, and that requires practice.
3. Mental clarity: Learn a way to get centered. Find a way that works for you ? there are lots of resources to help
you with this. For some, it may be a walk in nature, meditation, prayer. Practice something at least a few
minutes daily so that you live a more centered life and can call upon your special technique when needed.
4. Inner Calm: Learn to relax. If you do this one thing, the rest will follow! There are lots of ways to learn this all
important skill ? find one that works for you and start it right away.
5. Stability: Devote time to building strong foundations in your life on all levels ? physical, mental, emotional
and spiritual ? so that the waves of change don?t throw you completely off kilter. Developing the other five
qualities mentioned here increase your inner stability, but this also needs to be reflected in stable and
supportive relationships, health, finances, and even daily routines.
6. Flexibility: Stretch whenever you can, both your body and your mind. Try new activities and develop new
skills. Expose yourself to different cultures and ways of thinking ? you can incorporate what?s useful to you and
discard what doesn?t suit you. You?ll find you become more flexible and versatile. Read different kinds of
books, watch different kinds of movies, and whatever you do stretch your body regularly.
15. Evaluate the concept of Management
by Objectives (MBO)
“(MBO) is a process of agreeing upon
objectives within an organization so that
management and employees agree to the
objectives and understand what they are in
The term "management by objectives" was
first popularized by Peter Drucker in his 1954
book 'The Practice of Management'.
16. Some of the important features and
advantages of MBO are:
Motivation – Involving employees in the whole process of goal
setting and increasing employee empowerment increases
employee job satisfaction and commitment.
Better communication and Coordination – Frequent reviews and
interactions between superiors and subordinates helps to
maintain harmonious relationships within the enterprise and also
solve many problems faced during the period.
Clarity of goals – With MBO, came the concept of SMART goals i.e.
