SHADOW THE LEADER
Feedback Pratam Kumar , Shadow of Mr. Nasser Munjee, Chairman, DCB “After my meeting with Mr. Munjee, I have not only raised my goals but have also started working towards them in a much more focused manner.”
Meher Vakil, Shadow of Mr. Raman Ramachandran, Chairman & MD, BASF India Ltd. “. What I noticed
Naresh Purswani, shadow of Mr. Saugata Gupta, MD & CEO, Marico India “I was Impressed with the cool and calm he maintained throughout the meeting. Can’t imagine myself doing so, as being a business owner with ‘I-know-all-attitude’, would always give unwanted advice on every activity, and thus not allow nurturing talent beyond my own paradigm/spectrum. Overall a great learning for me!”
Tony Mukherjee, Shadow of Mr. Nasser Munjee, Chairman, DCB Bank. “I m currently working on transforming the culture of my company from a slow, uncaring mindset to a responsive, customer focused organization. What I understood and am going to apply is: - Customers come to us, rather than our competitor, even though they may have the same offering, because of our people - Rather than having a goal of customer obsessed company, which is overused these days, a better goal is to be the most admired company, for what we do and how we do it. His humble, calm, soft spoken demeanor which I’m going to internalize and emulate. This was a great opportunity, do let me know when the next batch is or other opportunities like this.
Abhishek Pachlangia, Shadow of Mr. Sunil Mathur, MD & CEO, Siemens ltd.“This day I would remember in my whole life and would consider as the best training which the firm could offer me in the last 12 years of my professional career. It would be very difficult to replicate what Mr. Mathur do day in and day out something which is in his DNA..I cannot change my DNA in short time but some of his good habits of not leaving the mail unaddressed beyond a day or getting a good review are some of the things which is a good learning experience which I would like to inculcate in myself. It has been an excellent experience. These are all one in lifetime experience that you would get but i would cherish it for a lifetime”
about Mr. Ramachandran is that, he communicates with his employees in an open and friendly manner, yet he adds a tone of authority to it. This serves to favour the overall well being of the organization and enhance the productivity of the employees. I thoroughly respect him and hope he stays my mentor in future. I plan to apply this : Listening to the team, being an example, being approachable and constantly learning”.
Pranal Modani, Shadow of Mr. Govind Shrikhande, CCA & MD, Shoppers Stop Ltd. “ I understood the importance of decision making and capacity building in making of a leader. Thought process of a leader should constantly focused on reputation, relationships & revenue. The experience has been truly enriching and purposeful. The program instills the rub off effect in one self. It was a great opportunity to interact so closely with one of my role models and get invaluable insights into him as a person and a businessman. I wish to carry the rich legacy of truthfulness in future. Cultivating ideas and business themes which relates more to the needs of the customer. Will backup my opinion and decisions on robust research thus imparting credibility ”.
