Last salary? Well, let's just say my salary was like a Bollywood movie - a lot of drama, not much substance, and definitely not worth the price of admission! Recruiters asking for my last salary? Oh, I'm sorry, I thought this was a job interview, not a Bollywood film where my financial history is the main plot twist!
The question of whether or not recruiters should ask for a candidate's last salary is a contentious one. Now, I know what you're thinking - what does Bollywood have to do with salary negotiations? Well, just like a Bollywood film, salary negotiations can be full of drama, suspense, and unexpected plot twists. And sometimes, the plot can get slightly ridiculous, just like in a Bollywood movie.
So, in this episode, I'll dive deep into the challenges and absurdities of recruiters asking for your previous salary details. We'll explore how this practice can perpetuate pay disparities and discrimination and share some hilarious stories of wrong salary negotiations.
So, grab your coffee, old monk or Bordeaux, and get ready to join the conversation as I tackle this tricky topic head-on. It's time to take a stand against the forces holding us back and demand the compensation we deserve.

Many speak about being this picture-perfect image of a leader, full of poise, calm and collected, yet vulnerable, sensitive, and thoughtful, all critical traits of a
successful leader, aren't they? Then you paddle, waddle, flip-flap, slip and trip, walk, talk, think, and plan about the next survival plan. The optics are terrible.
Hours turn to days, days to quarters, huffing, puffing, pulling, and pushing through a difficult situation, and someone you can't stand asks how you are. You think I'm like a duck, calm on top and furiously paddling below, but choose to offer a polite smile and nod without uttering a word.
Your gut churns. But it's not over. You're in for a surprise.Work pressure is real, and it does not make for any excellent optics!

Your honeymoon is over!
How many times have bosses said that to new employees? How many times did employees get a chance to reply? And if they did, guess what the employee would like to say in return?
What goes around, comes around!
The curious case for moonlighting: simply put, it is a situation where an employee chooses to work for another organization simultaneously while being gainfully employed. Sounds unfair, right? Or is it fair? Let us examine this from both points of view, that of the employer and the employee. Join me in this exciting topic exploring both sides of the story, employers and the employee's version, and then find out if Moonlighting works or not.

3 ways to tackle failures
09/08/22 • 16 min
How did it feel when you won that MVP award? I'm sure it must've felt great. And how did it feel when you were left out for the promotion over your
fiercest rival? Miserable, I guess. How did it feel when you got your dream job, and what happened when you were laid off?
For many, the feeling of loss is a far stronger emotion than the thrill of a victory, because no one taught you how to cope with a loss.
So who taught you how to lose? Was it your teacher, your parents, friends, or siblings?
Chances are the answer for most people is no one.
We live in a world where the emotional distance between winning and losing is staggering. Yet, all management gurus advise not to be too affected by
either success or failure. The question is, how? How do we not get affected by a failure or a loss when the world constantly reminds us
of what we missed and what others gained?
Tune in to this episode of BasTalk, where I share a coping mechanism or framework to deal with failures, defeats, or losses.

You are in a meeting. Yes, the same one you were in, the same time last week, yes again, the same one you were in at the same time, the week before!
You've heard the message before, and you're pupils begin to dilate. You hear what's being said, but it's not registering in your head.
Then the manager turns towards you and asks a different question! You are jolted. The mind is blank.
Are you not listening? Asks the frowning manager. The people around the table are staring at you.
And your mouth is dry as you struggle to utter some sensible response.
Does it sound familiar?
Tune in to this fascinating topic of hearing versus listening. I share three tips to break out of hearing people and get into a proper listening mode!
