What is your philosophy towards work?
I follow Sri Bhagwad Gita and The Lion King. These provide great skills and practical philosophies.
Ants and Eagles inspire for highly dedicated and positive work practices and strategies… Proper Vision, Goal Setting, Strategy and smart efforts to achieve the goals, Never Give up Attitude, Tap opportunities at Right time, Recognize and nurture talent of team members at Right time… and so on…
Whom do you admire as your role model? And why?
Lord Krishna and Chanakya for their practical wisdom & intelligence, strategic excellence, analytical excellence, ways to widen the paradigms of our thought – avenues and reach, and to excel in the worst situation.
“Management is core to every individual, organization & society.” Give your views on it.
Yes. Management is the core, and the strategic excellence rules success and growth.
Right from child hood, even in household functions we are knowingly or unknowingly involved in management processes, similar to the business functional processes. If you are keen observer and self learner, you can even learn management and strategies from the ‘Saas Bahu’ soaps!
Name 3 qualities of prime importance that a businessman should possess.
- Core Values, Ethics and Integrity.
- Zest to dream and to aggregate, innovate and achieve within aimed time frame while delivering ultimate delight to stakeholders (includes team, customers and society).
- Recognize and Nurture Talent and Strengths (in team members at organization) at Right time for a successful and motivated team and for great succession planning at various stages and levels.
According to you, what are the challenges for Entrepreneurship today?
Lack of unconditional mentorship, Lack of all round business functions and process knowledge, Lack of Industry Exposure, Lack of Capital adequacy, Government formalities and processes, Lack of peers with same thought process and zeal to participate for a successful entrepreneurship, Lack of supporting Banking and Financial Systems, Red-tapism, Bureaucracy and the list goes on…
Only passion and dedication to innovate, do and achieve can help in this environment, which also provides many opportunities for an entrepreneur.
Can Entrepreneurship be taught in B-Schools/Management Institutes/Colleges?
Entrepreneurship is different from ‘Starting a business’ and needs special set of skills as well as personal traits. Therefore it cannot be taught, but can be promoted for, encouraged and sharpened at Educational institutes (technology can be taught for the opportunity areas etc.)
Is the Name of the Institute from where a student pursues his/her Graduation/Post Graduation or other courses important while setting up your business?
I do not think so… There is no direct or indirect relevance of it while setting up business.
Yes, you may think it will make your meeting or an appointment easy (which can otherwise also be managed with some strategic efforts). Finally at the end of the day your innovative products and solutions, ideas and expertise for executing business and approach towards addressing and resolving the pain areas of clients while providing them enhanced ROI and value additions will help to establish a business and its and your repute!
Do you think today’s economy is conducive for a new venture to start upon?
Not effectively. There are too many hurdles for young, new or small entrepreneur including slow economical growth, lack of basic infrastructure, commencement cost, unsupportive government system and mechanism, lack of quality and responsible human resources, etc.
Also, today clients have elevated expectations with reduced budgets… There are many issues but at the same time there are opportunities… we are growing and developing economy…
So entrepreneurship and business, both can be started irrespective of the economy facts as these may be road blocks and constraints but cannot be the show stopper. What we need is high and sustaining energy, confidence in self, dedication towards dreams and ideas and the strategic intelligence and restless zeal to achieve what you want to.
“Earning more & more is the motive behind any business.” Is it justifiable?
No. Not at cost of compromising with core values, ethics and integrity, quality, customer delight and humanity. Businesses should also equally participate in innovating, social and environmental welfare, and the business/venture should also set great standards of Sustainable Business for Sustainable World with Sustainable Humanity.
Share with us the most enjoyable moment you had experienced on work.
Success demands lots of sacrifices. I enjoy when I see delight on face of my customers and team members. Most of the times I enjoy my work. If you cannot enjoy moments of your work (you fail or succeed is not relevant at this point, it is about enjoying what you do… you may fail even after doing smart efforts due to many external and internal reasons but that cannot stop you to enjoy your moments), it is sign that it’s not the right fit for you. You also need to make moments for yourself and team to enjoy !
