Institute for Strategic Leadership

As I stand on the threshold of new beginnings and set forth a roadmap for my personal and professional growth, I want to take a moment to reflect on the invaluable insights gained, having immersed myself in a week-long leadership training with actionable insights from the Institute for Strategic Leadership at Millbrook, Queenstown, New Zealand. I am just recovering from this transformational experience along with 20 other attendees from NZ Defence Forces, NZ Police, Hospice NZ, Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment NZ, UNICEF, and C-suite executives from NZ, Australia, and the UK.  There is so much to process and reflect on in the coming weeks. The journey to becoming the best version of ourselves is not without its challenges, but it is undoubtedly worth the effort. I wouldn’t have endured the week without the remarkable support provided by my syndicate, .

No other executive development program in New Zealand can boast such an illustrious roster, including a Governor-General, Prime Minister, 2 Mayors, the founding CEO of New Zealand’s largest company, 5 Chiefs of Defence, 2 Commissioners of Police, 3 Vice Chancellors, and several leading CEOs of large New Zealand enterprises making strides on the global stage. These programs stand unrivaled in New Zealand and have garnered comparisons to those offered by prestigious institutions like Harvard, Stanford, and INSEAD.

I am grateful and would like to thank the following people for supporting and sponsoring me in reassessing my leadership potential and what holds significance in my life.

Here are a few snapshots from this enriching experience.

Leadership Insights Interactive Session

I am thrilled to have been part of an enriching session today with the bright and promising students of VIT-AP, delving into some fundamental leadership insights. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing conversation on leadership excellence. Let’s continue embracing growth, fostering innovation, and championing positive change in every endeavor!

With a 100-acre campus in the heart of Amaravati, the capital of Andhra Pradesh, the institute provides a comfortable and vibrant campus life for more than 14000 undergraduates, postgraduates, and doctoral students. I was told that the management had spent nearly 1100 crores on the infrastructure of this private research university, and it is still expanding big time.




75th Republic Day Celebrations

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away. Yesterday, I experienced one such moment. I felt immense pride and honor while participating as the Chief Guest at VIT-AP University’s Republic Day celebrations. I had the privilege of hoisting the Indian National Flag and presenting awards to some of our society’s unsung heroes.

VIT-AP University, also known as Vellore Institute of Technology, Andhra Pradesh or VIT University, Andhra Pradesh, is a private research university located in Inavolu, Amaravati, the capital of Andhra Pradesh, India

Thank you, Vice Chancellor, Dr. Seelam Venkata Kota Reddy Garu, and Dr. Jagadish Chandra Mudiganti – Registrar, for choosing me to do the honors this year.





TEAM :: Together, Everyone Achieves More

Together, Everyone Achieves More

One is too small of a number to achieve greatness. Nothing of significance in this world was ever achieved by an individual acting alone. Look below the surface, and you will find that all seemingly solo acts are really team efforts.

Alone, we can do so little; together, we can achieve so much. 🚀 Embracing the power of collaboration with the mantra – Together, Everyone Achieves More! 💪💙

👥 Why Teams Outshine Individual Efforts

1️⃣ More Minds, More Power: Teams bring together diverse minds, ideas, and energy, unleashing a torrent of creativity and innovation.

2️⃣ Strength in Unity: Teams help leaders harness their potential while minimizing weaknesses. Strengths and weaknesses are more evident in individuals; teams provide a harmonious blend.

3️⃣ Diverse Perspectives: A team offers multiple viewpoints, ensuring a well-rounded approach to solving problems and achieving goals. It’s all about devising alternatives for every situation.

4️⃣ Accountability Matters: Teams keep leaders accountable for the shared goal, fostering a sense of responsibility and commitment.

5️⃣ More is Achievable: Simply put, teams can accomplish more than an individual. The synergy of collective efforts amplifies success!

🤝 Traits to Look for in Teammates:

1️⃣ Believers: Success is a collective effort, and having a team of believers propels everyone forward.

2️⃣ Achievers: Surround yourself with high-achievers; the collective strength of a team lies in the excellence of its members.

3️⃣ Concievers: Embrace change and innovation. Good ideas are the building blocks of future success. Break the mold for continuous growth.

4️⃣ Relievers: Many hands make light work, but gifted and complimentary hands make teams work. Success is a shared journey!
