A lot has been written about leadership in general and qualities of a leader in specific. How exactly do good managers and leaders help us grow? Here is fresh take using first principles of Physics. Gravity Proposed in 1915 by Einstein, Gravity is most accurately described as the curvature of spacetime. This curvature in spacetime
Thinking Physics – Brownian Motion and OKRs
In 1827, Robert Brown, a botanist, first observed that, when immersed in water, pollen particles moved randomly. This fundamental observation later was developed into a more rigorous mathematical and statistical theory of Random Walk. 🚶♂️ Stated simply, the current motion of variable is a random walk and does not depend on the past or future
Thinking Militarily – The OODA Loop & Dynamic OKRs
In a war (especially when there is “fog of war”), taking proactive actions (called “strategic initiatives”) with speed and consistency is the fundamental principle of the OODA Loop.The consistent ability to take proactive actions or react with speed to changing circumstances leads to competitive advantage. Applying OODA loop, translating decisions & actions into OKRs, documenting these OKRs and analysing results through reflections is an excellent way of coaching the next level leaders in companies that are rapidly growing and for creating a “growth culture”.
Thinking Physics – Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle & OKRs
Introduced first in 1927 by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg, the uncertainty principle states that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be predicted from initial conditions, and vice versa. In other words, it is impossible to precisely measure the values of certain pairs of physical quantities
Thinking physics – Schrodinger’s Cat, OKRs, Outcomes & Output
In 1935, physicist Erwin Schrodinger, proposed a carefully constructed thought experiment in which a cat in a sealed box can be both dead and alive to explain the problem of reconciling indeterministic (or probabilistic) reality in a quantum world to deterministic reality in the classical world. In the classical (or real) world, you (as an
