I would always give a good ear and note points to be addressed immediately and on the long run. If the issue is small it can be addressed immediately but if it represents a larger matter, I open it to our Executing Committee and the leadership team to seek a solution. On majority of occasions the solution is out of the box and comprehensive.
The world believes that leaders are born than evolved. Leaders have been traditionally viewed as “mythological creatures”, empowered by some mysterious quality that produces inevitable success. However, the modern view is that through patience, perseverance, smart skills like specialization, exceptional communication skills and rapport building, anyone can become a highly effective leader. That is the reason Leadership Training is so highly sought after by all successful companies and institutions.
Apart from thee above listed pointers, I believe that the most critical aspect of Leadership, usually missed out by the society today is “Values Based Leadership”. I emphasize this very essential ingredient of Leadership through Leadership Training seminars and programs across the globe. The primary outcome intended through these trainings is to inspire “True and Honest Leadership” in our professional and personal life.
I have moved from a proprietorship model to a corporate structure in 2006. This is one of the best decisions I have taken. To complement I have moved from a commodity based trade to managing people as this is my strength.
Advice to managers
I am all the way a people’s person or so they say. I do believe very strongly that people are the greatest resource and when empowered can create miracles. It is a recorded fact that Winston Churchill knew every person in his constituency by name. To add a leader must develop the quality of Emotional Intelligence, effective listening and far-sightedness.
Leaders don't do all the work themselves, they have this unique art of getting the work done by others while inspiring them to enjoy what they are doing.
Doing things right
Quality time is the key. I am not so much of a believer in "time management" per say. I believe in "focus and attention". The human mind is designed to wander. Keeping thoughts in control is the most toughest challenge. We take up a task and mid-way we move to another. This is detrimental to both our professional and personal front. Hence deriving focus of thoughts and attention is key to invest quality time.
Prophet's Muhammad, Prophet Jesus, Prophet Moses, Prophet Abraham [peace be on all of them] as they are true role models for the entire human race. They always led selflessly and for the betterment of society.
The other role models are my Mother for the leadership in empowering beggars and household labourers. My dad for his risk taking nature and tough persona. My wife Sabeha for her unconditional support and commitment. She has been a source of motivation and encouragement through thick and thin. Anthony Robbins for his inspiring capacities. Robin Sharma for his extraordinary writing skills. My cousins for their team work and excellence. My brother in law for his business leadership and unconditional help to the needy. I am highly inspired by all my friends from college, my team mates from mPower, Breakthrough360 and Ants2GiAnts for the goodness they have in their being.
My outlook on India technological development
Loads of orientation must be conducted and facilitated to break the culture of playing safe. We have been traditionally conditioned to the concept of "safe jobs" earlier termed as "govt. jobs" syndrome. Innovative thinking has eroded over the past few hundred years. Encouraging and rewarding "crazy ideas" and "tangent thoughts" could be a good beginning.
