“To lead people, walk behind them”- Lao Tzu
The students of IMT Business School learned this concept by one such leader, Mr. Sriram Rajan- Head OD & Talent at SIG Combibloc Obeikan.
Mr. Rajan delivered a guest lecture on the topic “Making Leadership Stick”. This guest lecture was conducted as a part of IMTea Expert Talks.
The focus of the talk was on the design of leadership paradigms to instil leadership skills. There were several essential elements explained like “Trend as you end”, “Refine before you Design” and “Design Paradigms and not Programs”.
His talk also highlighted some important points that an aspiring leader should keep in mind like “Don’t fear, focus on being clear”, “Value our values” and “Dare to do what you have not done before”.
The session was very interactive and the students really learned a lot from this.
We would like to thank Mr. Sriram for taking out time to address the students. We wish to have him more like this in the future and maintain a long term association.
