TEAM WORK , TEAM DYNAMICS-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


TEAM DYNAMICS FOR MERCHANT SHIPS AND SHORE OFFICES 



DYNAMICS IS A CORE VALUE ON CHEMICAL TANKERS AND MERCHANT SHIPS . Proper team dynamics ensures extraordinary results .

BLUE OCEAN LEADERSHIP IS INSPIRATIONAL, HONOURABLE AND CONSISTENT, SANS HYPOCRISY. A GROUP OF PEOPLE , DOES NOT A TEAM MAKE

A team must be dynamic whole based on interdependence rather than on similarity or cloning.


The must act in unity , almost like a single living organism, that requires to be nurtured to maintain its growth.

Understand team chemistry—the natural forces at play, to determine whether they are acting for ill or good and make timely interventions to make the dynamics positive.

Employees must be harmonious team players and there must exist a natural force of inclusion which results in transparent communications. They must inspire the highest level of commitment from each other. Everyone must be accountable to one another. They must share similar values, attitudes, ideals and goals .

#############################

RITD — MEANS “ RE-INVENTING TEAM DYNAMICS “ .

These are actual “ agent provocateur” signature logos I used as a email footer on my last ship , in official correspondence.

I change logos every 24 hours.

I gave mental orgasms to many , day after day.

    1. hi jd,

      where ever i worked i was a slave who was more powerful than Caesar -- by competence alone.

      i had a glorious track record , and my luck held at sea.

      the refrain was "if capt vadakayil does NOT know something, it is NOT worth knowing".

      i have always discouraged my awe struck juniors from using me as a role model.

      you are free to use these footers -- be careful, it may NOT be appreciated by your superiors and may backfire.

      very few bosses have leadership SPIRIT.

    hi v,

    that will be unfair for i hav HYPNOTIC EYES.

    on the ship when captain gives a safety lecture the max tolerable / threshold limit is 15 minutes before people start fidgeting--while seated .

    sailors who have been under my command will vouch that i used to have standing sessions for 4 continuous hours -- with nobody even daring to breathe loudly --leave alone move a finger .

    was it a pleasant experience ?

    sailors who have sailed with me-- or even heard of me at sea ( INCLUDING MY JEALOUS DETRACTORS ) -- will tell you that the engine watchkeepers used to fight -- last time you attended -- this time let me attend -- it is my turn.

    ANY IDIOT CAN HOLD THE ATTENTION -- ONLY ONE IN A MILLION CAN HOLD THE INTEREST.

    am i boasting ? -- so be it !

    STOP PRESS:

    I AM WRITING THIS AS I PROMISED ONE OF MY READERS 45 MINUTES AGO-- HE RAN UP TO ME DURING MY MORNING WALK--

    HE WANTED TO KNOW OUT OF MY 300 PLUS SCOOPS IN MY NEARLY 845 ODD POSTS--WHICH IS NO 1 AND WHICH IS NUMBER 300.

    ############

    well let me make it clear , these 300 scoops are CONSTRUCTIVE SCOOPS .

    all these 300 scoops are in the plane of INVENTION and NOT innovation.

    none of these 300 scoops are DESTRUCTIVE -- so my posts proving that edison, newton, darwin, einstein etc are IDIOTS does not find a place in these scoops.

    so waht could be the no 1 scoop?

    it is about providing a HINT on how to make a astronaut hibernate while travelling to mars -to cut down on food and water .

    it is about keeping alive a seriously wounded soldier till he can find proper medical care.

    HIBERNATION WITH HYDROGEN SULPHIDE GAS VADAKAYIL

    and

    FUMAROLES FOR FREE ENERGY AND HYDROGEN SULPHIDE SUICIDES IN JAPAN VADAKAYIL


    one of my russian chief engineers who lived near siberia , a place infested with HUGE bears had once woken up a bear while on hibernation in a cave ( as a child ) and he told be how furious the animal was. Before they go into months of hibernation they would kill a large animal ( bury the dead animal it in the ground ) and would NOT eat it unless it became putrid , reeking of rotten eggs..

    WELL WHAT WOULD BE NO 300 RANK.

    it is about PIN WORMS on as$hole.

    Check out the comment dated 18th Dec 2013 , about surcharging the anus with oxygen 5 times a day to prevent pinworms disrupting your REM sleep. This is a 6000 year old Ayurvedic cure for pinworm which happens when you eat non-veg heavy meats and do NOT wash your as$hole after a crap.

    VEDIC PRACTISES IN MECCA VADAKAYIL

    If I were a white JEW, I would have been an international celebrity. but then who cares?

    I have reached a stage where ONLY I can evaluate myself--

    one of my DUTCH bosses tried to patronise me nearly 2 decades ago -- he said he has given me a good confidential service report-

    so i told him something in Hindi -- with its translation.

    VADAKAYIL KHUD QUESTION PAPER SET KARTA HAI !

    VADAKAYIL KUD EXAM LIKTHA HAI !!

    VADAKAYIL KHUD NUMBER DETA HAI !!!

    capt ajit vadakayil sets his own exam question paper, he writes the exam , and then he gives himself the marks .

    THIS IS THE MEANING OF LIBERATION.

    believe me -- that man hugged me ( NO patronising here ) and said -- he expected such an frank retort from me .

    he said- every other captain would have said thank you .

    he was told to enter into this dialogue by the single man owner of that shipping company . this was about my " CUT THE CRAP " EMAILS -- where i would point out that the EMPEROR IS NAKED .

    99% of the people will NOT even understand the wisdom and gravity of the statement above.
