A reader asks” What is the one thing I can do to stay on task and rich my goals in 2016?” The answer here is a fundamental approach that works in sales–or anything else.
A leader leads. They lead the people and the organization in their charge forward.The vision thing. The leader can only lead if she has a clear vision of where she is leading the people in her charge. That vision—and the ability to share it in a clear and compelling way—is what draws followers to her, and what inspires them to take action.Making change. No leader ever finds themselves in charge of an organization that doesn’t need to change, or one that could not produce greater results than they are currently producing. That means a leader leads change. That change is what move an organization from their current state to its future.Strategy. A leader has to have some idea of how to compete and how to win. Strategy is the plan to do so. Without strategy, the vision will not come to life, and the change will not be achieved.Execution. A leader has to ensure execution. Execution is a big deal. You can have the best strategy on Earth and the tactics to achieve them, but without execution, it is all for naught.Growing people. Execution isn’t easy. To execute, the people in the leader’s charge will be required to change, to grow, to develop personally and professionally (you cannot have the latter without the former). A great leader helps those in their charge become the best version of themselves. The greatest of leaders build leadership factories.Teams. Leaders build teams. They bring diverse groups of people together to achieve what would otherwise be impossible. Teams are a force multiplier, creating value far in excess of the individuals it is made of.Nonnegotiable values. A leader creates a culture. They decide what values are nonnegotiable, the core beliefs and behaviors that make the organization in their charge what it is. They decide where the organization stands, what it is for, and what it is against. And then the leader protects that culture.These are some of the component parts of leadership. That said, what a leader really does is lead. Essential Reading!

Indian pugilists would look to secure Olympic berths besides fetching medals against a strong field in the World Boxing Championships starting in Azerbaijan on Monday. The top 10 in eight weight categories would qualify for the London Games, scheduled in 2012, while in the heavyweight and super heavyweight, the top six would book their Olympic berths. Apart from last edition’s bronze-medallist Vijender Singh there are others to watch out for as well. Suranjoy Singh (52kg) would be among the ones to watch out for. The diminutive Manipuri, fondly called “Chhota Tyson”, would be expected to not just book an Olympic berth but also fetch a medal. For the experienced Akhil Kumar (56kg), it would be about regaining lost ground. With more than 650 boxers from 120 countries in fray, it is one of the biggest world championships from where the first batch of Olympic qualifiers would be known.
Monday morning blues are just a myth when one is too eager to meet one of the world’s greatest musical geniuses. The wait seemed a bit too long before the Mozart of Madras, Allah Rakha Rahman walked into the studio space for the much awaited interview.Dressed in a purple jacket, black t-shirt, black jeans and shiny black shoes, he settled down and the discussion kick-started with the Premiere Futsal league anthem, which he is composing.MOZART OF MADRASDelivering the best consistently is a huge task, and Rahman has never disappointed in keeping up with the mounting expectations.”The Premiere Futsal anthem is very different, it is a very sporty, lively mix of rap, chorus and beats,” says Rahman. “Commonwealth was rock, Pele was electronic – stadium anthem kind of a thing – this is like a much younger sound, something that people look for in today’s times,” he explains.For this different, out-of-the box composition, the voice that he has used to add an edge to this new creation, is also someone fresh – the heartthrob of Indian cricket – Virat Kohli.Virat, who is known for driving spectators crazy in the field, appears to have surprised the ace musician with his sense of music. “I had just thought of using Virat for the raping, but from the very beginning he was in tune and that made me experiment more. Now the song has rap, chorus and beats,” says Rahman.As a kid, however, Rahman was never into sports. But, his musical journey has inspired him into liking sports. “Sachin is a dear friend and he has started to develop an interest in music. I like football now, and composing for Pele was one of the major reasons behind this,” says Rahman, who is also the brand ambassador for the Rio Olympics.advertisementINSPIRATIONAL JOURNEYWith a career spanning for over two decades, every composition is a new experience and every day has a new lesson in store for the maestro.Working with some of the best minds in the industry, the journey has always been memorable, he says. After winning the Filmfare award this year he had said, “I feel like this is my first award.”Rahman has a handful of projects at the moment, including, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Mohenjodaro, Gurinder Chaddha’s Viceroy’s House. Shaad Ali’s OK Jaanu, Shankar’s 2.0, Mani Ratnam’s next, and Rajiv Menon’s next.Two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe, four National Film Awards, over 100 movie soundtracks and anthems, composer AR Rahman’s journey inspires millions across the world. As we wrapped up our interview it seemed like the journey was not enough, the desire for more remained.ALSO READ:AR Rahman receives Japan’s prestigious Fukuoka prize
MOST READ The first overall pick last year out of Arizona, Ayton averaged 16.3 points and 10.3 rebounds as a rookie and was hoping to have a jump in production in his second season.He had 18 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks Wednesday night in the Suns’ season-opening home victory over Sacramento. Ayton was especially proud of the blocks, telling media after the game that new coach Monty Williams had put a huge emphasis on defense and rim protection.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40SPORTSSan Miguel suspends Santos, Nabong, Tubid indefinitely after ‘tussle’ in practiceBut the good vibes from that victory have quickly evaporated.“On behalf of the Phoenix Suns organization, Monty Williams and I are disappointed in the actions by Deandre Ayton that led to his testing positive for a banned diuretic and subsequent suspension by the NBA.

This jewelry designer is also an architect Duterte calls himself, Go, Cayetano ‘the brightest stars’ in PH politics “Deandre has expressed his deepest remorse. While he is suspended we remain committed to his growth and development on and off the court. His actions are not taken lightly, and we are committed to ensuring that Deandre understands the profound impact it has had on the team, organization, and Suns community.”Ayton was upbeat after Wednesday’s win, giving no indication that he was about to miss nearly a third of the season.Phoenix had a 19-63 record last season but hoped for a fast rebuild with a roster that was built around Ayton and high-scoring guard Devin Booker.The team hired Williams as coach, signed free-agent point guard Ricky Rubio and re-signed talented forward Kelly Oubre Jr. The Suns also added rookies Cameron Johnson and Ty Jerome and depth in the frontcourt with veterans Aron Baynes, Dario Saric and Frank Kaminsky III.Now they’ll be without Ayton until mid-December unless the suspension is reduced through the arbitration process.ADVERTISEMENT Witness claims NBP medical ward used as drug trade ‘communications center’ PLAY LIST 05:25Witness claims NBP medical ward used as drug trade ‘communications center’01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST01:10Hong Kong leader: Divisive extradition law will be ‘suspended’02:11Makabayan bloc defends protesting workers, tells Año to ‘shut up’03:07PH billiards team upbeat about gold medal chances in SEA Games01:38‘Bato’ to be ‘most effective’ CHR head?

Team India performed to it’s full potential on Sunday and as a result comfortable defeated South Africa by 8 wickets at The Oval to enter the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 semi-finals.CLICK TO WATCH FULL VIDEOPut into bat South Africa got bundled out for a paltry 191 in 44.3 overs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah picking up two wickets each, while Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya got one wicket apiece.In reply, Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 78, while Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh remained not out on 76 and 23 respectively to guide India home with 12 overs to spare.India’s bowling and fielding were the high points in this match with Hardik, Bumrah and Kohli affecting three run outs in the first innings, including that of captain AB de Villiers, which dented South Africa’s progress.Captain Kohli reserved special praise for the bowlers and the fielding effort of his team after the victory.”It was a good toss to win. The wicket didn’t change much. We thought the wicket was really good to bat on. Our bowlers bowled really well and the fielders backed it up as well. I would say we had a complete performance in the field.”We grabbed our opportunities and that helped us restrict such a strong batting line-up to 190. Always good to get him (AB de Villiers) out early. He can really hurt you in the middle overs. It was great breakthrough for us. It was good to see the intensity from the boys,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.advertisementKohli also emphasised on the importance of staying at the wicket till the winning runs were scored and praised Dhawan for his batting effort at the top of the order.”It was important for someone to bat till the end. Luckily I could do the job for the team, but Shikhar’s intent was outstanding – getting the boundaries when required.”I think if you a share a 100 partnership in a 190 chase, more or less you finish games convincingly. Even Yuvi wanted to finish the game along with me to take some confidence to the semis,” he added.India, in all likelihood, will face Bangladesh in the semi-final on June 15 at Edgbaston. They are on top of the table in Group B with four points from three matches and can only be toppled by Sri Lanka if they beat Pakistan by around 294 runs in the final Group B game on Monday or if Pakistan win by around 267 runs.Looking ahead at the match in Birmingham, Kohli said the pitch their suits India’s game.”We played in Birmingham. We really like that stadium and we really like that pitch as well. It suits the kind of cricket we play. Anyone can grab the trophy, but for now our focus is only on Birmingham and bring our “A” game as we did today.”But there’s always room for improvement. You don’t want to sit on your laurels and be complacent. That’s not what we believe in. We’ll look back at where the bowlers went wrong and try to rectify that in our next game. Any game of cricket you play, whether you win or lose, there is always something to learn,” Kohli concluded.
Sri Lanka pacer Nuwan Pradeep was on Saturday ruled out of the ongoing series against India after suffering a hamstring injury in the second Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club here.According to ESPNCricinfo, Sri Lanka manager Asanka Gurusinha confirmed a grade-one hamstring tear adding that Pradeep will be out of action for a minimum of two weeks.Pradeep was forced to return to the dressing room during the first day of the ongoing second Test on Thursday due to the injury, leaving his 17th over incomplete. Left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara later completed the remaining two balls in the over.Earlier, Sri Lanka lost the services of batting all-rounder Asela Gunaratne, who was ruled out of the series after shattering his thumb during the first Test.

Make a kite, go for a hike and discover Nova Scotia’s wildlife at one of the many provincial parks taking part in Parks Day on Saturday, July 21. This national celebration marks the 18th annual Parks Day and Nova Scotia provincial parks continue to participate each year. “On Parks Day and throughout the year, we are given opportunities to demonstrate why Nova Scotia’s provincial parks are called nature’s resorts,” said Natural Resources Minister David Morse. “Our parks offer physical activities and outdoor experiences, protect wildlife habitat and contribute to the health of surrounding communities.” At least 15 provincial parks throughout Nova Scotia are taking part in the festivities. The first Parks Day participant in 1990 was Dollar Lake Provincial Park and some of the original organizations return each year to take part in the celebrations. This year at Dollar Lake, events will include a wildlife presentation and display, archery, and map reading. Over the years, activities have been developed that have become classics, such as the fun day at Mira River Provincial Park. This event draws more than 1,000 people each year to the re-enactment from Fortress Louisbourg, kids activities with prizes, and fireworks. New events for 2007 include archery demonstrations and a barbeque at Thomas Raddall Provincial Park and a three kilometre hike to Uisge Ban Falls. “As in Parks Days past, we hope many people celebrate with us on July 21,” said Mr. Morse. “It’s a chance to experience nature, meet new people and take advantage of all that our parks have to offer.” Parks Day events are included in the Parks are for People program, which takes place throughout the summer and fall. The program is a co-operative effort by government agencies, recreational clubs, community organizations and interested individuals and is co-ordinated by the Department of Natural Resources.

OTTAWA – Two Albertans were named Canada’s newest astronauts Saturday as the country marked its 150th birthday.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used the platform of waterlogged Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa to name Jennifer Sidey of Calgary and Joshua Kutryk of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.Sidey is a lecturer with the University of Cambridge who has worked as a mechanical engineer, while Kutryk is an air force pilot who also holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in defence studies.Sidey told the crowd she was inspired to become an astronaut in 1992 when Roberta Bondar went into space aboard the space shuttle Discovery. She said she had the opportunity to attend a speech in Calgary by Canada’s first female astronaut.“I remember looking up to her being excited at the idea of being a scientist, being a Canadian and having the opportunity to explore places beyond our world,” she said.“I’m grateful to have had that role model and that memory makes this moment so powerful for me.”Kutryk, who holds the rank of lieutenant-colonel in the air force, said he is honoured to be joining the Canadian Space Agency.“Throughout the recruitment campaign, Jenny and I met some amazing Canadians, scientists, doctors, engineers, pilots like myself. There is so much talent in this country,” he said.“I stand on the shoulders of the great Canadian astronauts before me, they inspired me to be the best that I could be.”Kutryk, 35, was fascinated with space as a child, according to a biography posted on the Canadian Space Agency website. He said he knew his life would focus on helping to explore it.“I have always wanted to leave the world a better place than I found it, and I believe that space is one area where I can do so, Kutryk said in a question and answer on the space agency’s website.Sidey, who will be 29 in August, said her motto is “fortune favours the brave.” She said her greatest previous achievement was to become a lecturer at Cambridge, something she never dreamed of when she first moved to Britain in 2011 as a engineering graduate.Sidey and Kutryk will move to Houston this month to start the two year training program for astronaut candidates. The program provides instruction in the systems on board the International Space Station and a host of other things ranging from spacewalks to survival training to Russian language instruction.The two astronauts will be officially welcomed Tuesday at Canadian Space Agency headquarters in Quebec.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version wrongly said Side is a lieutenant colonel in the RCAF, it’s Kutryk who is in the air force
WINNIPEG — A judge has denied an injunction against the split of two Manitoba junior hockey leagues that some allege deliberately excluded Indigenous teams.The lawyer representing the First Nations teams had argued that all the “white teams” got together and formed a new Junior league.All of the teams were part of the Keystone Junior Hockey League until May when five non-Indigenous teams left to create the Capital Region League.The new league argued it was formed because parents were concerned about long bus drives after 16 people were killed and 13 injured when the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus collided with a truck in Saskatchewan.Justice Herbert Rempel says he could not rule on the motivation for the split or whether racism played a role.But he says if the injunction were granted, around 100 players in the new league would not be able to chase their dream of playing hockey.The Canadian Press
LONDON — Campaigners fighting British government plans to expand Heathrow Airport have lost a challenge in one of the country’s highest courts.A coalition of local councils, environmentalists and London residents claim the government has failed to properly address the impact on air quality, climate change, noise and congestion that adding a third runway would entail. London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also backed the lawsuit.The environmental group Greenpeace says that while the campaigners may have lost this judgment, the government is losing the argument on whether such expansion is “morally justifiable.”Parliament approved plans last year for the third runway, backing what the government described as the most important transportation project in a generation.Prime Minister Theresa May has said the expansion will boost economic growth.The Associated Press
15 July 2009A new United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) kit – the first of its kind in the humanitarian community – seeks to help young children who have been uprooted from their homes or affected by war and natural disasters regain a sense of normalcy. Launched by UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman in Geneva today, each Early Childhood Development Kit, which costs $230, can be used by some 50 children up to six years of age.They contain 37 items – including dominos, colouring pencils, construction blocks, hand puppets and memory games – that encourage playing, drawing, story-telling and numeracy.According to an agency press release, early childhood is the most critical period for brain development, with young children especially vulnerable to the stresses of war and disasters, such as hurricanes, floods and earthquakes.The kit was created after UNICEF staff and partner organizations responding to emergencies identified a need for special materials to help young children.Before its launch today, the kit was tested in seven countries – Chad, Liberia, the Republic of Congo, Jamaica, Guyana, Maldives and Iraq.The new kit complements UNICEF’s “school-in-a-box,” of which 600,000 have been distributed during emergencies to date.
The mission, led by Bacre Waly Ndiaye, Director of the UN Human Rights Office in New York, has started in neighbouring Chad, where tens of thousands of Sudanese have fled over the past year to escape the violence.The team will interview Sudanese refugees taking shelter there before travelling to Darfur itself to assess the situation. The mission is expected to last about 10 days, a UN spokesman told reporters today in New York.Bertrand Ramcharan, the Acting High Commissioner for Human Rights, set up the mission to investigate reports that systematic human rights abuses are occurring against civilians in Darfur.Last Friday Jan Egeland, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, said a coordinated, “scorched earth” campaign of ethnic cleansing was taking place in Darfur, which is in Sudan’s west.Mr. Egeland said the region’s black African population, especially the Fur, Zaghawas and Massalit ethnic communities, were being forcibly driven away from the area by militia groups allied to the Sudanese Government.Militia groups, the Sudanese Government and rebel groups have been fighting in Darfur for just over a year.As the fact-finding mission begins work, the UN Office in Sudan is reporting that conditions in Darfur have worsened in some areas, a UN spokesman said.He said outbreaks of communicable diseases, such as measles, are increasing because of the rising number of internally displaced people moving to relatively urban areas in Darfur. Some 200 cases of measles have been confirmed in one camp alone.Humanitarian agencies say they cannot provide enough food, clean water, shelter and health care to internally displaced Sudanese because of the lack of security in Darfur.

It read that NFL policy states the station must carry all Jags away games. At the end the message said: “We apologize for any inconvenience.”Viewers then took to Twitter to remark on what many saw as an apology from the station.But WKMG Vice-President and General Manager Skip Valet says the arrangement is nothing new. He says for nearly two decades Orlando has been designated the secondary Jaguars market and has carried all the away games. As he put it: “I know it’s frustrating, but as a CBS station in this market you have to carry the away games.”Jaguars scored an NFL-low 2 points last week and are coming off the worst season in franchise history. They have missed the playoffs 11 of the last 13 years. by The Associated Press Posted Sep 15, 2013 4:08 pm MDT

THREE OF THE nine people arrested in relation to the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby last week have been released on bail, Scotland Yard said this morning.They had been arrested in south London on Saturday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. Police said the men are expected to return to a city station, pending further enquiries.The two suspected killers, Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, remain under armed guard in separate hospitals after being shot by police at the scene last Wednesday.A third man, arrested yesterday, is also still in custody at a south London police station.One other man and two women were also arrested as part of the investigation. The two women were released without charge, while the 29-year-old man was bailed to return on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.In a statement this morning, the Metropolitan Police Service said it was working “tirelessly and painstakingly to uncover the full circumstances relating to the murder”. Its Counter Terrorism Command is being assisted by national counter-terrorism officers and the Security Service.Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old father, husband and serving soldier, was killed in a brutal attack in broad daylight on 22 May.The gruesome nature of the murder — some witnesses say the men tried to decapitate their victim — their politically-fuelled rants to passers-by, and their apparent desire for publicity all point to militant Islamist extremism, experts say.-Additional reporting by AFPEarlier: Sixth man arrested in connection to Lee Rigby murderMore: French soldier stabbed in neck outside ParisRelated: Murder of London soldier raises fears of ‘lone wolf’ attacks
