Representational image On September 22, Rajasthan became the first state to move a Right to Health Bill, promising health for all its residents, in the state assembly.

The Bill, if passed and implemented in its true spirit as hoped, has the potential to ensure universal healthcare and may pave the way forward for other states to bring about similar laws. At least three states — Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Assam — have prepared similar Bills but none has reached the respective assemblies yet.

Among its sweeping effects on the economy, the legislation, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act , is likely to have significant effects on the economics of higher education, and particularly on colleges’ budgets.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Carsten Thiel is a business executive with over two decades of leadership experience. He is CEO of the global biopharmaceutical EUSA Pharma. If you are like me, for the past few years, you have felt that your head is on a constant swivel. It seems that change has been coming at us from every possible angle, whether that be technological, environmental, political or economic. The drumbeat for leaders has been that these changes will not be slowing down in the near future, and the best course of action in order to shore up an organization is to be in a sustained state of rapid evolution. This is by no means an easy ask. Businesses thrive on stability, and in the face of continual change, it can be easy to lose focus and direction. In order for an organization to survive in today’s world, I believe there must be utter clarity on where it is going and why. So what can a leader do when the only constant appears to be … [Read more...] about Four Practical Ways To Align An Organization’s Purpose And Values
