  MY THOUGHTS "The key to developing a successful organization is threefold: 1) an open and trusted management, 2) a viable business model, and 3) an effective talent management policy”

An open and trusted management is an operational structure that has complete bilateral faith in front line (lower level) and senior management. Lower level members have complete faith in the decisions of senior management and senior management has complete faith in the decisions and contributions of lower level management. Furthermore, all members of the organization must have the ability to voice their opinions regarding a proposed or actual course of action. In some cases, front line operational staff members have a  better grasp of the viability of a strategic action rather than senior management. Consequently, an open and trusted management is one that is flexible.    

A viable business model is one that is attainable, marketable and commercially viable. Contrary to popular belief, in some cases a competitive advantage over other players in any given market is not necessary for a company to be "successful." For example, duplicating a competitor's business model may lead to gains in market share and the erosion a competitor's market share position.      

An effective talent management policy is one that fosters the retention and selection of the best human capital. Organizational theory states that an organization that has a strong stance on diversity has a larger pool of human capital from which it may select the best candidate. As such, assuming the organization will always select individuals with the highest contribution value, diversity will lead to an optimal selection process and therefore adds value to the organization. Therefore, organizations without a strong diversity principle are suboptimal.      Open, flexible, and trusted management Viable, marketable and competitive business model   Effective talent management policy MY CHARACTER Idealist – This is the basis of almost all of my actions in life. As a follower of western idealism, I have a tendency to see things as they should be. For example, equality, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnic background or religion is an ideology that I hold dear. It is unfortunate that we have not reached a social state where this ideology is widely accepted.

Futurist – I am a conventional (non-religious) futurist. As a science fiction enthusiast, I believe that technology is important to the progression of our society and to the improvement of our lives. Futurists believe that the future is full of advanced technologies such as cures for today's deadly diseases;  social improvements including greater tolerance, less poverty and hunger; and various other improvements. In this ideology, futurists believe progression is based on technology improvements

Progressionist – Similar to idealism and futurism, a progressionist is someone who believes in the progression of society towards perfection. It is my hope that one day racism, poverty, hunger and similar injustices will be eradicated. It is impossible to do so in a short period of time. However, we can improve or "progress" to a better state by making small improvements from one day to the next.

Strategist – As a corporate strategist, I develop innovative (and usually new) initiatives, policies and procedures that allow a business to effectively and efficiently meet its objectives.

Realist – A realist is the opposite of an idealist and takes the world as it is. The realist takes a logical and factual approach to society and acts accordingly. The realist believes that universals are real and exist independently of anyone thinking of them.

Activist –  As an equality activist, I have taken steps to ensure that inequality by individuals or organizations are stamped out vehemently. This includes, but is not limited to court actions.    MY MUST READS The following are some great books to read. "Freakonomics" by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J.
