Sagar Joshi went to business school because he wanted to make a fundamental career switch. Having spent several years in research and development at French industrial supplier Air Liquide in Delaware, the 37-year-old Indian wanted more managerial responsibility and to work with multidisciplinary teams.During his executive MBA at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, which he finished this year, Joshi secured a marketing job with M&T Bank in New York state. Fearing the transition would be difficult, as he had no work experience relevant to the new role, he signed up for executive coaching, which Darden offers as part of the programme.Coaching is a type of leadership development that helps people achieve personal and professional goals or solve problems.

Only the manliest of men make the cut for David Mackenzie’s films. The director recently trained his camera on hardened prison inmates for Starred Up and cud-chewing cowpokes in the Academy-feted Hell or High Water, two perspectives on the responsibilities and sacrifices that life thrusts on guys’ guys making their way in the world. So he’s right at home in the medieval era, where the warriors wear stony faces caked with blood and grime. Mackenzie tackles his homeland’s early 14th-century origins for Outlaw King, a massive-scale account of nobleman-turned-King of Scots Robert the Bruce’s quest to restore sovereignty and freedom to his subjects. He and his countrymen’s efforts to beat back the English goliath tread the same battle lines as everything from Braveheart to 300, but that’s hardly a problem for a director who excels at massaging detail into stock narratives. Yet his fixation on the proving grounds of manhood has curdled into something … [Read more...] about Outlaw King review – Chris Pine fronts up for some macho medieval bombast
Perhaps there really was a time, long ago, when if one wanted to be informed of the activities of the royal family, one consulted the court circular. Now, of course, you go on US celebrity gossip website TMZ. And there in glaring headlines you find a story, not of family joy at a forthcoming wedding, but of pain and suffering – much of it heaped on Meghan Markle’s 73-year-old father Thomas. You could, as one newspaper has, call it “a rollercoaster of speculation surrounding whether Mr Markle would attend Saturday's royal wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire.” But you might also wonder whether this is a soap opera of cruelty, one in which Wednesday’s cliffhanger features the vulnerable father of the bride saying he can’t go to the wedding because he’s in hospital having heart surgery. Nearly every story about the former award-winning TV lighting director Thomas Markle makes sure to include a reference to him living as a “recluse” … [Read more...] about Is Thomas Markle’s story of whether to attend the royal wedding a ‘rollercoaster of speculation’ or a cruel soap opera?
