    Episode #10 - a dance with Trust with Sarika Kharbanda (26m)

    Episode #10 - a dance with Trust with Sarika Kharbanda (26m)

    Relationships are built on Trust. Possibly every story in history has an element of Trust, be it with fallen monarchs, birth of religions, rise of organisations, or even examples from the animal kingdom. This has been an area of research for many years and as we flourish in the age of information, Trust becomes one of the most essential foundations on which organisations and teams get built. But how do we build trust? Where do we begin? Who takes the first step? And how do we know when it's achieved?

    To discuss this in more detail, I invited a good friend of mine Sarika Kharbanda; she's a coach who specialises in Lean Change Management, the first Management 3.0 trainer in India, and the host of the Perspectives of Change podcast. Needless to say, she's probably one of the best I know who has helped teams with their quote / unquote trust issues so it only seemed fair that I pick her brains on this episode for some anecdotes. So welcome everyone, I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!

    Episode #9 - being Optimistic with Jeff Stuit (32m)

    Episode #9 - being Optimistic with Jeff Stuit (32m)

    Optimism, it's one of those unspoken qualities that differentiates a leader from the crowd. Where other's see failure, optimists see opportunity. Where others see chaos, optimists see self organisation. And where others see end, optimists see new beginnings. I came face to face with one such leader in this podcast, Jeff Stuit, the founder of Improvement School. He recently published his book "An Agilist in India", which he wrote while being stuck in a hotel room, 7000 miles away from his home, in-between a nationwide lockdown down & a hurricane; and his stories had me gripped. I consider myself an optimist but Jeff showcases extreme optimism and this talk with him was a profound experience for me. We discussed everything from spirituality to music and I was stunned to how he related every experience as a learning that one could take-away as a human being. This episode is not just an education in being an optimist, it's a showcase of an optimistic leader and the difference it can make in an organisation. I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!

    Episode #8 - Engaging with Liberating Structures with Rucha Kapare (19m)

    Episode #8 - Engaging with Liberating Structures with Rucha Kapare (19m)

    I've been a fan of the Twitter handle @MeetingBoy since many years now and one of its tweets that I've remembered forever goes something like this - If someone falls asleep during your PowerPoint presentation, you are at least partially to blame. That is true with many teams where individuals mostly engage using conventional structures like presentations and managed discussions. The problem with most of these is that the decision making is usually owned by one person while utilising a centralised mechanism to control the content. That's where Liberating Structures are different and make it possible to include everybody in the decision making process regardless of the group size and this happens with distributed control of content. To discuss this in more detail, I invited a good friend of mine Rucha Kapare who's been an advocate of Liberating Structures. She's the Head of Business Analysis practice at Springer, she utilises Liberating Structures on her job more than one would expect, and has presented it at numerous conferences. So welcome everyone as we unleash creativity, I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!

    Episode #7 - a culture called The Lean Startup with Bob van Luijt (26m)

    Episode #7 - a culture called The Lean Startup with Bob van Luijt (26m)

    The Lean Startup, a methodology for developing products and businesses using short cycles of build-measure-learn to continuously improve. That's probably the crispiest definition one can provide but what impact does this have on products, on businesses, and more so on the culture of an organisation? A startup may embrace this methodology on day one of its conception and not even realise how its culture gets moulded by it, however more mature organisations who wish to realise the benefits of this methodology do witness a cultural change, sometimes not very successful ones. So it only seemed fair to speak with someone like Bob van Luijt, the CEO & Co-founder of SeMI Technologies, who's witnessed this multiple times. His current startup provides a solution called Weaviate which is a Semantic Search Engine with built-in Machine Learning to search through Unstructured Data and this is used by huge organisations for building, for example - their Knowledge Graphs. It was fascinating for me to understand from him how one can balance out cultural differences when working in a space like his and hopefully you and find it just as intersting as I did. I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!

    Episode #6 - Period Leaves, Period (21m)

    Episode #6 - Period Leaves, Period (21m)

    The title of this episode is Period Leaves, Period. The second period is a full-stop, in-case you didn't get the pun. It's usually unusual for men to talk about periods, but I'm going to do it anyway. It all started with the Founder & CEO of Zomato, publishing a blog on 8th of August 2020. Zomato introduced upto 10 days of Period Leaves for women, including transgender people. And the media went berserk. There was coverage in national news papers and news channels, there were interviews and statements from Zomato officials, however what caught my attention was the eruption on social media. The social media went wild with supporting and against supporting such a policy; there were men & women who were supporting it and getting lashed by those not supporting it, the same happened the other way around, although if you were a man and not supporting it you were just a jerk, women not supporting it got some coverage and commented up on. So I thought, why shouldn't I look at it objectively, keeping all the pseudo-science BS out, and just focusing on what people have to say about such policies.

    Interesting bits and pieces:


    00:01:24 - What is Zomato?
    00:02:07 - Zomato's blog Introducing Period Leaves (Link in the description)
    00:04:07 - Does this policy violate the notion of equality at work?
    00:04:47 - Equality vs Equity (Link in the description)
    00:09:38 - Does this policy give a handicap status to women?
    00:11:00 - Temporarily Able Bodied (TAB)
    00:14:25 - Can this policy be misused?
    00:16:23 - Trust
    00:19:34 - Conclusion

    Episode #5 - Extreme Ownership; when everyone's a Leader with Sriharsha B (1h, 18m)

    Episode #5 - Extreme Ownership; when everyone's a Leader with Sriharsha B (1h, 18m)

    Let's say that you were on a vacation and the day you returned you found out that your team has made the biggest blunder in the history of your organisation. You're to meet the Senior Leadership in an hour to explain what went wrong and possibly point the one who should take the fall for it. You spend enough time understanding what went wrong and even identify who was responsible for it and now you're in front of the senior leadership. But when they ask who's fault it was, you take the blame on yourself. The senior leadership is surprised how it could be you since you just returned from your vacation to which you say, it's your team and their actions are your accountability and you're ready to face any consequences that come off it. Now that's extreme! This and many more unconventional actions is what Sriharsha and  discussed in this podcast.
