Michael Lee Stallard, the President of E Pluribus Partners, a firm specializing in employee engagement and productivity, has a thought provoking article in the Economic Times . Here he speaks of six universal needs. I feel events in the recent past- not only in the United States but indeed all over the world- have brought to the fore one more important need. The need to be learning all the time. To un-learn and re-learn as situations and circumstances change. To be flexible and adapt to new challenges, which we may never have imagined. If you had asked someone a few months ago whether Lehman Bros. would file for bankruptcy – you know the answer you would have got.
