That One Skill… And One Skill Alone

I’ve now completed my 1st year of MBA at XLRI Jamshedpur. There are a zillion vital life lessons that a great B-School teaches you. One of them is the power of observation.

Observe, at every possible opportunity, to find the true underlying causes behind what we see all around. Powerful observation lifts the veil. Powerful observation dispels all smoke and gives you that crystal-clear, black-and-white perspicuity.

So, is observation that one, all-encompassing, all-powerful skill i want to tell you about? Hell No! But there is this one all-encompassing, all-powerful truth that observation has led me to discover…

Being good at DEBATING is THE ONE, AND ONLY, SKILL that can SINGLE-HANDEDLY DETERMINE YOUR SUCCESS in bagging white-color corporate roles.

So, how the hell did i hypothesise that ??!!

Style Sheets Master

Well, i’ve observed. The evidence is all over the place. And someday i’ll offer that on this blog. But till then, i request all parents out there who want their kids to land great corporate jobs… get your son or daughter hooked onto debating at a young age (3rd or 4th grade!). They will someday thank you, immensely, for that.

Of course it doesn’t mean that if you aren’t a good debater, you won’t make the cut. You can and you will. But if you were, there are no odds stacked against you!

That rare ability to rationally argue, critically analyze all incoming information, putting-forth your own well-reasoned opinion will make all the difference at school & beyond in the corporate world. And with dedicated practice, once that ability becomes a chiseled reflex… you’re all set for corporate success!!

  1. Good observation. All parents don’t encourage debates. Many of them just give their opinion and are defensive to others. I think this chapter should be covered in school and in college. I think there should be a crash course with books and case studies for people who recently became parents. Thanks for the share though 🙂

    1. You’re right. Most of the brilliantly successful professionals we see around are in fact a result of great parenting. Parenting that involves knowing what habits to inculcate in the child from a very young age.

      And that is a fantastic health & nutrition blog that you’ve got there Sir!

      1. Hi Inspire and Rise,

        Yes parenting is an important task. I don’t even know if I ever will be ready for it.

        Thanks for your warm words. Glad you like the blog 🙂
