What the best education systems are doing right | Personal Development, Self Improvement & Capacity Building | Scoop.it
In South Korea and Finland, it's not about finding the "right" school.
Andeel Ali's insight:

The Korean model: Grit and hard, hard, hard work.
The Finnish model: Extracurricular choice, intrinsic motivation.

"Youth" The Future Leaders! and “The Drug Problem“

My first presentation on slideshare! This presentation was delivered in PYDN - Professional Youth Development Network's First Sindh Youth Summit which happened…
Andeel Ali's insight:

A Blast from the Past! :3 A 7 years old presentation! The very first one I delivered in a conference! When I was the Drug Counselor of UNODC in Central Prison Karachi!

I've tried to cover the Local and Global scenarios in this presentation properly and also explained how drug abuse is damaging our society in multiple ways.

The most important part comes in the end! I recommend you to learn and utilize the Coping skills as well as Anti-Drugs! i.e. Activities that keep you happy and away from Nootropics!

Succession Planning Simplified!

Andeel Ali's insight:

What are you going to do if you find out that a executive level official or a senior project manager has left his/ her job?


Advertise the vacancy, Invite job applications, Shortlist CVs, conduct job interviews, hire the suitable candidate and then finally train him for the required post? 

Isn't that a lengthy process? It could around 1-2 months. And during this time, the stocks would plummet, morale could crash and projects would be delayed! 

Instead if you had an employee ready to take up the job right away? Won't that be awesome? 

This is where Succession planning comes in! 

Mentor the right candidates for the right time, maintain the talent pool. And sustain! :)

Career is Fluid! | Personal Development, Self Improvement & Capacity Building | Scoop.it

Hi, I am Andeel Ali and today I want to bust some myths related to the concept of Career, Job, Occupation and Vocation. I hail from Pakistan, where the children still do not know about the Child Rights! i.e. CRC and the adults they still don’t know about their rights i.e. UDHR. But, don’t worry same is the case in West too! What do distinguish us from them is our static and rigid educational system, which does becomes fluid but only on the tertiary level, thanks to the Bologna Conventions.

Yes, this is true! I am a manager, not a leader! A manager who manages activities on day-to-day basis, achieving success in accomplishing small yet extremely important tasks such as, reporting the event, writing the press release (because there is no press information department), etc. I take pride in building systems, systems that can run on their own, even in my absence!Yes, I am not the visionary, ultra-super-duper charismatic leader.
