Achieving Success and ensuring growth
I really don’t need to do anything to grow and develop as a leader I just need to trust my people and have faith in them. Give enough opportunity to others so that they can also grow themselves in organisation.
To ensure that you continue to grow as leader you need to have FEAR OF FAILURE.
A fear of failure will always put you on toes and let you work harder and harder.
Remember one thing that there is no short cut for success you need to earn it only by hard work.
Well yes you are right being leader it’s not an easy task. Essential leadership skill cannot be gained or learn from books it’s the quality someone can inherit form there past experience or someone can be god gifted.
You can be successful leader if your audience or your employees can listen to you for hours without getting bored. To be a successful leader you need to
1. Listen to everyone and do appreciate their opinion
2. Giving respect to each and every Employee of the organisation do interact with maximum people do not just get surrounded with group of people.
3. Be supportive with team even in case crises.
4. Motivate and show confidence in employees who are non performer in your organisation.
I don’t think that any kind charisma is needed to be a leader; I think charisma automatically comes when you become a leader. If person start enjoying your words and get motivated by those for my terms that person is the successful leader.
Last but not the least I think a Good business leader should be good human being but same time very focused and visionary individual.
Well grievance of an employee is a part of any organisation. As leader I think one needs to identify the cause of grievance. You must take a action as soon as it arises and resolve it. Discuss with your employee and show your full confidence in him or her during this discussion.
Managing personal and professional life
After all we all are human and we do make mistakes but to realize those mistake by keeping your personal egos or issue aside I think it’s easy to connect right dots.
Leaving set career in UK in 2004 and coming back to India and starting RouteSms Solutions limited. Being from middle class family the decision was a very risky and uncertain.
Advice to managers
Some of the simple advice I would like to give to upcoming management leader is
1. Trust in yourself
2. Dream big life but dream only when you awake
3. Do not get carried away by success remember one thing what goes up comes down too.
4. Take risk but calculative
5. Be optimistic about your thought
6. Do not show panic in front of your team
7. Even in case of crises keep smiling.
8. Lead by example let your employees follow you.
My views on India Technical development
You right, we Indian are more of family and career oriented people we need to finish our study then have good job and then get married.
We do not like to take risk in life once we are married and we get marry at age of 24-28. Thanks to Institution like IIT or IIM they have started incubation or invoation zone in there exiting campus where young talent can explore or furnish their dream to be Entrepreneur.
Things are changing now and bigger corporate houses should take initiative to support future talent.
Well there are few who really influenced me a lot in my life and they are my parents who really worked very hard to give us good Education. Second I would say my Friends Mahesh Kaniah and Mojo who really helped me a lot during our start-up days. Mahesh is a great mentor and Mojo is tech guru without these 2 guys I think I would never ever reached to a level where I’m today thanks guys.
