 Case study

Sudeshna and her team at Marg worked with a big industry giant in solving a major issue with its management. But, this time the focus of the company shifted from traditional manager training to a comprehensive assessment aimed at diagnosing underlying issues within the client’s organization. Owing to diagnostic assessments of the culture, it became evident that a recurring problem was disrupting employee satisfaction and performance was a lack of role clarity among managers.

Rather than simply addressing the symptom of managerial shortcomings through training programs, Marg wanted to dig the roots for a deeper understanding of the underlying issue. And owing to her dedication, it was revealed that the organization’s job descriptions and competency profiling were not well defined. And this one error led to a great deal of confusion and dissatisfaction among managers and their teams.

After addressing and resolving this root cause, Marg engaged into the organization’s collective understanding of the issue. The company was able to proceed with a successful cultural transformation. The team was aligning as per the leadership practices, job roles, and organizational culture to cultivate better clarity and effectiveness across all levels.

It is truly remarkable that the team delves beyond surface-level symptoms and addresses systemic challenges to drive meaningful change and organizational improvement.

This comprehensive understanding allows them to tailor solutions that address the specific needs and pain points of their clients, ensuring relevance and effectiveness in an ever-changing business landscape.

Insights on women entrepreneurship

As a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, Sudeshna is deeply interested in discussing women’s entrepreneurship in today’s business world. But she is also concerned that despite the phenomenal progress, women still face challenges in securing equal leadership roles, considering the fact that women make up half of humanity.

She believes that organizations should view their workforce as human resources, not gender-specific ones, to create inclusive environments that support everyone. Family responsibilities often hinder women’s professional growth, and female leaders need to overcome these barriers collectively, she added.

For the future ahead, she envisions a world where men and women share equal responsibilities at home and work. Also, she is focused on eliminating the need to categorize success by gender. Hence, she emphasizes focusing on capabilities rather than gender to recognize leaders in an effective manner.

The leadership mantra

When asked to share her mantra as a leader, Sudeshna advocates that a true leader is someone who not only achieves results and growth for the organization but also mobilizes and empowers people to deliver those results. She emphasizes that effective leaders are those who cultivate and develop other leaders within the organization.

In founder-driven organizations like Marg, the leadership quality is often tied to the capabilities of the founders, which can sometimes limit the growth potential of the organization.

However, Sudeshna is pleased to note that at Marg, the next level of leadership has been well-developed, with individuals exhibiting similar qualities and actions as the founders. This focus on nurturing leadership at all levels is seen as crucial for sustained success and growth.

Geographical expansion

As shared by Sudeshna, Marg is all set to expand its services by delving deeper into diagnostics, assessments, problem statement identification, solutioning, and deployment. Under her guidance, the brand would scale up its consulting strives majorly in the coming years. The efforts would be focused on areas such as change management and cultural transformation.

The major alignment of the futuristic operations would be to provide end-to-end solutions, from pinpointing issues through diagnostics and assessments to implementing solutions and rolling out comprehensive plans. Marg aims to enhance its consulting capabilities to cater to the evolving needs of organizations undergoing transformations and seeking assistance in navigating the people-centric aspects of change.

Headquartered in Bangalore with an office wing in New Delhi, Marg’s trainers operate pan-India. In the coming years, they would strengthen their presence further across India. Adapting to the trends of virtual and face-to-face offerings in a technologically advanced manner.

On top of that, Marg is also developing tailored programs for key roles such as chief of staffs, HR business partners (HRBPs), non-finance professionals needing financial expertise, and auditors for fintech purposes. Also, Sudeshna is creating a roadmap to strategically expand its operations to penetrate markets in Mexico and Qatar.
