Often we come across certain people who have a myth being in their mind that running a ship is one man show. But such a bubble of myth must burst into the rain of awareness that engine just doesn't run just by itself, but it takes efforts of lot of auxiliary machinery to make It work.Similarly, an organization, a company and even a ship is run by each of its members. I feel pity on some souls who do not upgrade their thought process.

I am proud to be a part of a company who works on family values with its employees and offers equal opportunity to all. Also the core importance of efficient team work is focused upon. This leads to higher confidence in the employee and they can communicate in a better way.

This is how most of the worldclass corporates function. They have a culture of open door policiy where one is easily accessible to all in the organization. Yes the proper heirarchy must be respected and should be followed, but it must be kept in mind that each spoke of the wheel is important for the wheel itself.

This should be taught to all sailors, despite of their ranks that all ranks are important for efficient running of the ship. The word team work must be emphasized upon on a large scale and the thought of one man show must be limited to self m better to get rid of it.

A person who is at a lower rank today, will be on the top tomorrow and those at the top will be either upgraded or removed from the system. This is life. This is the nature of the system. Thus, we shall remain meek and humble at all times with everyone.

"The best leaders are those who learn to meet the janitor with the same respect as with the CEO. That is humanity".

I came across a post on social media today, where one senior was asking a junior's rank, about his credibility when the poor fellow asked the condition of the ship he was about to join.Isn't it insane? We must learn from the people in the Americas and Europe and else where In the world where everyone is considered as equal and due respect is given. If we do not want to change ourselves for the good, then we should stop saying that western people are more advanced and mature.leadership is not dictatorship.

If you are a leader, uplift someone, do not kick them down. Work towards other's betterment and upgrade rien and your karma shall upgrade you automatically. Because,"what goes around, comes around.."

If you are at senior level, look upon your juniors as future leaders and set examples for them. let you de their idol. Let them tend to be you.If you faced certain challenges, or were bullied, ensure that your juniors are not facing the similar from you. Ensure they rise up like a star with their own light.

Do not be a black hole of universe, which just absobs and not emit.

Our wish come true as an effective leadership and management book has come up which is especially for the Mariners and by a Mariner. The book is,
