ABOUT THE GUEST(In his words):

I help transform how people work and how leaders lead. Since the pandemic, I've helped various organizations and leaders with org design, KPIs, building a solution mindset, creating a culture of agility, streamlining product development, inculcating curiosity, transforming leaders to manage remote/hybrid teams, reframing roles & designations, and much more.


I'm also a certified Blue Ocean Strategy Consultant and Semco Style Consultant. Hofstede's book on cultural dimensions is my "operating manual" 📓📚


My hobbies: Fusion food experiments in the kitchen, non-fiction books, and occasional running


I'm on the advisory committee of an NGO (Gnanadharshan Seva Foundation) that works for the benefit of visually challenged women


✔WHAT I do: Making agile principles work for IT and Business, Building Curios Leaders and Teams, Transforming Leaders (Strategic Leadership, Authentic Leadership, Innovative Leadership), Enhancing Solution Mindset, Reimagining organization,s and teams.


⭐WHO I help: CxOs of mid-sized Tech oriented organizations. BU Heads of large organizations, Sales Heads, CHRO, and L&D Heads.


❓HOW I do it: Rather than a prescriptive recipe, I will "invite" you to expand your thoughts and welcome new ways of working. Structured, measurable execution plans that take only 10%-15% time from the CxOs or Head of Dept.
