CEO at paramount computer systems

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I embarked on my entrepreneurial journey in the year 2000 after having spent 18 years working for companies owned by others. I was motivated by “Rich Dad , Poor Dad “ and an ardent desire to create a company that is respected in the market-place. I defined a simple Mission Statement : “Building People , Building Entrepreneurs , Building Organizations. (BP , BE , BO). I also defined a Vision Statement at the same time: “Enhancing Value for all my stakeholder’s year on year by adopting leading edge technology & contemporary Management Practice. (Gary Hamel & CK Prahalad inspired me to focus on strategy & value). On this journey over the past 18 years, I have co-founded 3 companies, created over 20 Entrepreneurs who in turn have generated employment for over 250 people. I consider myself as a Learner & a Teacher at the workplace. Teaching and not business was and is even today my passion. Up until yesterday, everything I was doing was in the physical space & now I am learning how to execute on BP, BE, BO in the virtual world. The journey continues………..

Using both the Left & the Right brain at Work !!!

Way back in 1989, when I landed in Abu Dhabi I met with Kumar for the first time and we clicked instantly. He was pure fun to be with whether it was a 10-minute meeting or a 3-hour party. When I asked Kumar How is work? He laughed and said, “I am searching for Job satisfaction”. I met Kumar several times in the 1990s –he had during that time changed 3 Jobs -International Airline, Regional Airline & then a Travel Agency. When I met him at the turn of the century and asked him how is work- he laughed and said- “I am still searching for job satisfaction”.

This is probably a question you have never been asked before. People only make assumptions & then pass judgement on you when it comes to this question. Maybe you are also guilty of having come to conclusions on others. So how do we answer this question………

Oh Captain! My Captain! Oh Coach! My Coach! Oh Experience! My Experience!

There is an old saying that if you want to teach Johnny Arithmetic, not only should you understand Arithmetic, you need to understand Johnny. I had a remarkable experience as a child. I hated Mathematics and with ritualistic regularity secured atrocious marks. This continued right through till the 11th Standard, despite the fact that we had an outstanding Maths Teacher in school. After the 11th standard, my father in sheer desperation, sent me to a Maths Tuition teacher. Within a matter of 9 months, I was a transformed boy. I began to love the subject I once hated, enjoyed solving problems and from that time on wards I secured above 90% in every single Maths examination I appeared for. How is such a transformation possible? “If you want to change a person’s performance significantly, you have to change his behavior. If you want to change his behavior, you have to change the way he sees himself, you have to change the way he sees the world.” This is what NVKK Nambiar did (my heart goes out to him) and interestingly he had never taught in a school or college & was a Director of Statistics in the State Government.
