It is Time to let Go the Carrot and Stick Approach, Even as it Subconsciously Brings Glory to a Chief in Nakuru County

By Mwangi  Wanjumbi – Newtimes B.S. CEO & Chief Consultant/Trainer This week, my attention is completely stuck on the continuing exploits of Chief Kariuki of Nakuru County.

Grades or no Grades, Just Aim to Achieve Your Potential in the Candidacy of Life

By Mwangi  Wanjumbi – Newtimes B.S. CEO & Chief Consultant/Trainer Congratulations to all the 2011 KCSE candidates for bravely facing the seemingly very mean examiner. It does not matter the grade that turned out eventually. But, it matters that our unfair system of evaluating our abilities has ranked you one way or the other.  Out of the 411,783 candidates only 119,658, a paltry 29% has acquired the power to continue reading on and on after attaining grade C+ and above. Others have been rated as
