Do you know the origin of the term
'project going for a toss'? Yes. You guessed right. The shipping industry!
Sometimes their deliverable literally goes for a toss during course of their
project. But THY shall fear not. We have a master who is capable of steering
the ship not only in the water but also on the dry land. Mahesh shared an
experience where his ship got lifted due to huge tidal forces in storm and was
dumped on a huge pile of sand like a sitting duck. 75 Million dollars were at
stake. His CO (joined by CE later) was an example of how a disaster uncovers
what is underneath the skin. Extreme situation demanded 'force/direct' type of
conflict resolution response. "a. Know what you don't know, b. Nothing is
impossible, and c. Be the vehicle that you drive – are the three competencies
that got built in me due to this profession" shares Capt. Mahesh in this
the DVD for such and many more learning experiences!
