  A Gig CXO offers his/her services to several companies in  Gig/ assignment-based   roles. Corporations are looking for specialists to consider a job done quickly, by an expert and most significantly, at reduced costs as the Gig CXO concept slowly gains traction. Corporations are beginning to prefer a specialist over a full-time role in some industries like Fintech, EdTech, construction, digitization, and regulatory approvals. Young companies, start-ups, and consulting firms are now hiring experts-on-demand, or Gig CXO professionals, who are typically in their late 40s, extremely experienced, and highly skilled.

Over and Above Mainstream Commercial Success – The Perspective of Gig CXO

  Time bound responsibility Immense authority entails great responsibility. This is because followers are far more inclined to trust a leader who has exhibited certain abilities to lead them and get through obstacles whenever and wherever they may emerge. In the circumstance, it is expected of a leader to be the most proficient at solving issues swiftly.

Rerouting Success with Interim Leadership

  Each day, we are placed in a box of yet another personality type, yet another social class, yet another body type, and so on. It’s almost as if people have stopped believing that there is a possibility of being it all or being anything else other than what has been established. Like there is an adage that a misfit becomes a failure or a rebel. "Jack of all trades but a master of none",   is all we remember from the quote, and we forget that it is still better than a master of one. While other divisions may develop discreetly, the most evident is segregation based on professional success, which is defined by society only on the basis of materialism and other superficial factors. There are also several additional factors, such as the age at which a person should be successful, the type of assets a person should own, the years of sustenance and advancement, and so on.

WINNING IN THE INTERIM

  Picture this scenario if you can: you are running a relatively young company in a fiercely competitive marketplace where the norm is feverish change. Suddenly, in the midst of a firestorm, your CEO leaves you or even worse you are having to ask him to go. Where does that leave your organization? To even mature organizations, such sudden exits can be deeply unsettling. For smaller businesses it may be a death blow.  Take Twitter for instance which, even before Elon Musk, has not been a stranger to leadership upheavals. When CEO Dick Colosto left the engine room of the microblogging giant on a short 2-week notice, he left a potentially disruptive vacuum at the top. Only, it’s founder Jack Dorsey by taking over as “interim CEO” ensured that Twitter absorbed the shock without so much as a twitch of a muscle.   From behemoths like Twitter to small startups all across the world, Interim CEOs or CXO’s have helped steer businesses through the rough waters of turbulent leadership change.

Ethical Moonlighting: The Future Of Professional Workforce

  The news is abuzz with leading dailies reporting about employees that have been moonlighting, or ‘two-timing’ their employers, so to speak, after it came out that a Noida-based IT employee was working for as many as 7 different organizations—at the same time! In fact, a study by ResumeBuilder.com states, 69% of remote workers have a second job; 37% of them have a second full-time job while 32% have a side hustle. From running an independent small business to picking up contract-based work from multiple organizations, one job no longer seems to be enough for a majority of the workforce in 2022. Technically Speaking, What Is Moonlighting? You know that clause in your employment contract that prohibits you from working with another company, part-time or full-time? Moonlighting breaks this very clause. Moonlighting basically means you have a ‘second job’ or are gainfully employed by more than one company at the same time. Usually the second job is done after hours, ie, at night, wh

Regards, Ranab”   Typed Ranab as he gazed into his screen, with his mind racing through different business plans of his own. He has 18 plus years of experience with Pre-sales, Business Analysis and Marketing. But with the rising pressures of Pandemic, the unending lockdown woes, the vacant office buildings that eerily stared at passers-by, Ranab took a major decision. He decided to quit, not working but quitting corporate life. The work-from-home model was not as comfortable as portrayed. With the extended calls over the nights and the weekends, he felt blinded by a wall of work, totally cut-off from social life with zero freedom of time. It had allowed him to ponder over his career path and look back upon the vast domain experience he garnered over the years. Yet, there he was, logging in and out mechanically, every day,
