More about me
My whole life journey is 'Be Positive', When you dream ...dream really BIG. Aim for Stars, you will defintely land in sky one day
Handling Grievances
I use only one mantra Communicate. I speak to employee personally and try to figure out what could have caused the problem. There could be several reasons for his concern. It could be a collegue, Money, Environment, family situations. After finding out exact reason I will help employee to come out of that situation slowly. I will give him all the support from Organization level.
Team Management
I encourage fully energetic, proactive, highly skilled, team players. I would expect all the team members to participate in the company events. I will arrange fun activities, team building activities to build bond between them. We have also initiated birth day celebrations so that the employee feels happy.
Ensuring Growth
Lean everyday. I think nothing stands infront of learing. I keep reading books related to my work and new IT concepts. I am open to suggestions from all the sides. My employees can walk over to me anytime with a suggestion.
Managing personal and professional life
I emphasise on work-life balance. If you just concentrate on one other suffers. Even though I spend less time with my family I make sure that when my wife gets a holiday I take leave or work from home so that she feels happy. I maintain high level rapport with my employees as well. I have good relationship with my stakeholder, which helps me to keep going.
My advice
Have a vision. A leader always sees the future. Don't just look at the current tasks. Start building your second level to make you redundant! Be frank for your employees and your customers. Never compramise on pressure situations.
Leadership qualities
Unbiased attitute. He should not differentiate between his employees. He should take action when it is needed at the right time. He should not worry even if he gets the notation as TOUGH.
