You quit! Nah, I’m just kidding. But at the end of the day, that might be something you may want to consider if all other efforts have proven futile. A lot of industries are known for being a hostile place to work in. Industries like the entertainment industry or the oil and gas industry (especially those who work offshore), are notorious for making it difficult for people to feel welcome, when they show up to work. Most times...

Emotional intelligence is a concept that has become popular amongst top executives and people in leadership positions, generally. However, I believe that it is also relevant for everyone regardless of whatever position they may occupy. What then is emotional intelligence?

I haven't met many female manufacturing engineers; this is one of those engineering fields that is the true definition of a man's world. I initially wanted to be an architect. But you know how Nigerian parents are (especially mine), I didn't have a say in the matter. I was good in math, science, technical drawing, and art, so I guess it made sense for my parents to tell me to get a degree in Manufacturing Engineeri...

We all want a flourishing business or career, to be successful and the best we can be. But what is our motivation for chasing success? Are we just in it for the money or to tell people that we have a fantastic job? Or do we want to help and add value to the lives of people?

The Nigerian dream for our parents was for their kids to go to the best schools in the world, come back home with good grades, work for a good company and start a family. I was an interview away from achieving a significant step in my parents’ Nigerian dream. My wife who was my girlfriend at the time, trying her best to convince my very broke self that this was the best way forward. But in my heart, I knew to go for that inter...
