Former United States Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s newly released memoir What Happened may have solicited mixed reviews, but it has certainly caught the attention of American television hosts.

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon (above) opened his monologue by talking about the book. “I heard that it was almost 500 pages long. Of course, the only person with enough time to read it is Hillary Clinton,” he quipped. Fallon even wondered out loud what “notable people” like Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama and Donald Trump would have said had they written the blurbs for the back cover.

Seth Meyers from Late Night resorted to taking a dig at Putin, saying: “Hillary Clinton’s new book titled What Happened was released today, as was Putin’s new book, Me.” Predictably, the audience response was ecstatic.

Jimmy Kimmel revealed that the 512-page long book is only the “adult version”, and went on to present a parody meant for children, titled Losie the Pooh. Kimmel narrated the story to his studio audience in the style of a bedtime tale.

“Once upon a time, not too long ago, November 9th to be precise, Piglet was skipping through the woods when he happened upon his friend, Losie the Pooh (aka Clinton) eating a giant jar of feelings,” he began.

“Trump Tigger” also appears in the book, telling Losie: “I’m gonna make America so great again it’ll be ridickerus! And Eeyore is going to pay for it!”

Now that you’ve reached the top, how often do you say, “Thank You”?

What kind of a leader are you?

How do you define success? The typical picture of success is a large bank balance, expensive material possessions and fame. But for some, success is happiness that comes from fulfilling a childhood dream or attaining a sense of purpose. For those, success is not about the volume of an applause or the weight of a gold medal, but about showing gratitude and sharing success with the people without whom the journey would be incomplete. Here are a few ways you can share your success with others:

Speech

While it sounds simple and formulaic, a genuine, emphatic and honest speech can make everyone feel like they are a part of a winning team. For a personal touch, acknowledge the team’s efforts by mentioning each one of them by name and thanking them for their unique contributions. Hearing their own name makes people feel proud and honoured.

Realise the success should be passed on

Instead of basking in the glory of their own achievements, good leaders encourage, motivate and inspire others to achieve success. A good leader should acknowledge his own mistakes, share his experience and knowledge and cultivate an environment where every milestone is an accomplishment for everyone in the team. Talk about challenges, the personal and professional struggles that you had to overcome. Sharing setbacks helps others to relate to you and helps them overcome struggles they may be facing.

Celebrate

Nothing beats shaking-off the deadlines, work-pressure and fatigue by celebrating success together. Enjoying a job well done together as a team brings about a spirit of camaraderie. A catered lunch, evening drinks or a weekend off-site, the important thing is to enjoy the win with people who have gone through the same struggle.

Keep it flexible

The last thing you want is for work celebrations to become monotonous and repetitive. Not all milestones have to be celebrated in a grand manner, some can just be acknowledged with gestures such as personal Thank You notes or writing a recommendation on LinkedIn.

Make success more meaningful

Go beyond numbers, sales targets and profits and add meaning to the achievement. Reminding everyone of the larger purpose inspires people. It’s easy to lose interest when you do something in a routine fashion. Giving a larger meaning to success makes people feel more involved and energized.

Great leaders are those who share their victories with others. They acknowledge that the path to success is collaborative. Great leaders don’t stand in front of their team, but are found working amongst them. This video is an ode to such leaders who epitomise the Chivas culture and know how to Win The Right Way.
