    In ancient times, Emperor Wu of Han dynasty bestowed Pixiu as 「Treasure of Emperor」. Pixiu was allowed to be used only among the royal families, but  forbidden  for  ordinary officials and folks. They  were  put to serve  as guardian spirits for royalties  and  will found at royal buildings  and cemeteries  during  the Han dynasty   since the  death of Qin Shi Huang Di in 210 B.CDuring  the  Qing  Dynasty ,  it  was  the most favoured celestial  creature carved to Emperor  Qian Long ‘s delight  and the Emperor would have  every favourite piece of  jades or important seal carved with  the image of  the Pi Xiu as  an  authoritarian  symbols  for  his high  ranked officials
     
    Until  the Qing Dynasty ,the  royalties  are the  only group  of  people  blessed with such  entitlement to use them and  all for some special reasons  and this secret practice has been  passed  down   over generations  since  thousand of years  and  was a  very much   kept  secret  traditional practice  until  the implementation  of  “China  Open Door  Economy  Policy  ”  in early fifties.But  why  has this  mythical creature  been selected for  such majestic role .What are its  mythical powers .Why  was Pi Xiu ‘s  Images  and painting   been  used  for  royalties seal  and on army   flags  representing  past grand majestic armies of early historical  China dynasties.  What  are its Mighty  Power !
     
    During the  early fifties in   China   ,It was rumoured  that  the  Soong  family has also a  White Jade Pi Xiu , which  was  a unique piece formerly  owned by a Qin Dynasty emperor that   has brought   on  immerse wealth luck to this  family that  their  three daughters  were  all married to three of the  most Powerful men  in China   .
     
    Pi Xiu   can be traced  back to early Han  period as probably in the beginning of Han dynasty, a book titled "Shi Zhou Ji" written by author Dong Fang Shuo was said to be    recording all kinds of rare treasures and unknown creatures  with mystical tales of strange creatures during the reign of Emperor Wu of Han dynasty (140~87 B.C). The book was recorded   during Han dynasty with subject  written about「Bixie- Pi Xiu 」- with its   content  mentioning  「Bixie」, eliminates evils".The descriptions of Pi xiu have varied throughout the ages possibly because people have intermixed both Pi Xiu and  Bixie together  but  the origin of Pi Xiu's (Tian Lu) status as a symbol of the acquisition and preservation of wealth has  much  been  appreciated until   today
     
    The belief in this mystical creature started as early as the Western Han Dynasty. While it is known now to have only one horn, ancient Bi Xie are found to have two horns sometimes. It is said to devour gold and silver , hence it is a wonderful wealth attracting  mystic  to have at home. It is also believed the creature can absorb evil and protect its owner .

  • The End of Diversity As We Know It - Why Diversity Efforts Fail and How Leveraging Difference Can Succeed - cover

    The End of Diversity As We Know...

    Martin N. Davidson

    The idea for this book came to Martin Davidson during a disarmingly honest conversation with a CFO he worked with. “Look,” the executive said, clearly troubled. “I know we can get a diverse group of people around the table. But so what? What difference does it really make to getting bottom-line results?”
    
    
    
    Answering the “so what?” led Davidson to explore the flaws in how companies typically manage diversity. They don’t integrate diversity into their overall business strategy. They focus on differences that have little impact on their business. And often their diversity efforts end up hindering the professional development of the very people they were designed to help. 
    
    
    
    Davidson explains how what he calls Leveraging Difference™ turns persistent diversity problems into solutions that drive business results. Difference becomes a powerful source of sustainable competitive advantage instead of a distracting mandate handed down from HR.
    
    
    
    To begin with, leaders must identify the differences most important to achieving organizational goals, even if the differences aren’t the obvious ones. The second challenge is to help employees work together to understand the ways these differences matter to the business. Finally, leaders need to experiment with how to use these relevant differences to get things done. Davidson provides compelling examples of how organizations have tackled each of these challenges.
    
    
    
    Ultimately this is a book about leadership. As with any other strategic imperative, leaders need to take an active role—drive rather than just delegate. Successfully leveraging difference can be what distinguishes an ordinary organization from an extraordinary one.
