BEFORE SIGNING OFF, PLEASE SHARE SOME WORDS OF SUGGESTIONS FOR OUR GLOBAL READERS AND THE BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS.
Balendu: As a leader, you need not be the smartest person in the room you are in. It means there is little to learn. Always find new rooms where people are smarter than you, and you can learn something from them. Hire people smarter than you. Do not let insecurity prevent you from surrounding yourself with the best. Leaders always know their role and build teams around them to best suit the plan they have created. As they say, ‘Patience is the mother of all virtues.
There is a strong need to be patient and deal with every situation with a calm and composed mind. It is useful to emphasize the importance of people management skills as the people are the most valued assets. It’s clear that having a practical yet logical approach goes a long way in your personal growth and also while leading a team.
