My NASSCOM Emerge session on Change leadership

My 2-hour presentation titled How Leaders Make Change Happen was held at NASSCOM's headquarters in New Delhi on January 29, 2010. Neeru Goel, Director, Snap-On Business Solutions welcomed the audience. Close to 30 people in management positions in areas ranging from engineering to business development to HR attended the session.

I designed the session around real-world cases, starting with insights from my own Change initiative. I suggested that 3 participants share their change leadership experience. Interestingly, rather than just 3, nearly everyone shared their challenges and ideas. SB Navrang, Manager Business Development, Symmetrical Management Consulting said, "Wonderful interacting with Pradeep Henry and others ... best part was the open discussion."

Innovation being a Change trigger, a lot of discussion was around it. Participants felt that culture has been hindering creative Indians from innovating for the world. The way a child is raised, the education system, the corporate culture — all were pointed out by the audience as reasons for the country's poor performance in terms of producing world-class innovations.

NASSCOM is india's chamber of commerce of IT. And Emerge, which organized my session, is a NASSCOM initiative that helps advance the growth of emerging companies.

Thanks to Avinash Raghava, NASSCOM's Regional Director (North), whose foresight resulted in this Change leadership session.

  1. Hi Pradeep,

    Happy to know that you had an opportunity to discuss about How Leaders Make Change Happen at NASSCOM Head quaters. NASSCOM is conducting a three day Leadership Form in Mumbai this month, where leaders from across the globe attend various sessions. I am not sure if they have invited you. But that is another place where CIO/CEO/Sr Executives attend sessions and it would really be good, if you get an opportunity to present your case there too.

Business model intimacy

The Grameen Bank success story continues to be researched and written about. Other companies have tried to repeat the Bank's model. Is there a fundamental difference between the original innovation and the followers? In MIT Sloan Management Review (Summer 2009), Erik Simanis and Stuart Hart compare the original model with that of India-based Hindustan Unilever's model and point out a crucial difference.

Grameen Bank was a result of personal bond and shared vision between Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus and Bangladeshi farmers/villagers. Yunus and the villagers spent quality time together as a community before the innovator launched the bank. While Grameen Bank became a profitable and scalable village bank, the authors say that Hindustan Unilever's project is "unlikely to grow into anything more than a new distribution channel." While Grameen Bank generated a "groundswell" of demand," Hindustan Unilver's entrepreneur turnov…

clinton/obama/media cabal to be exposed starting june14

A lot of people have surrendered themselves to be constantly duped by leftist media outlets.

The duped people now believe things that are entirely different from facts – as regards the obama/clinton/media cabal.

For the duped leftists, the coming Inspector General (IG) reports and follow-up actions (assuming they're both carried out unobstructed) will be a shock.

The shock will be so powerful, the duped leftists may react in insane and dangerous ways. (Well, they've already been behaving in such ways, but they've been doing so for a different set of reasons and largely unaware of facts.)

Broadly, the IG reports are going to be about treasonous/ unconstitutional/ illegal activities, power abuses, and obstructions for the purpose of:

1. Exonerating a criminal Hillary

2. Covering up the crimes of the Clinton folks

3. Attempts to block a presidential candidate

4. Attempts at a coup against a constitutionally elected president

5. Obstruction of presidential duties

6. Public deception…

Elon's April 1 tweets: part of an emerging leadership style?

First his tweets and then my comments ...

Tesla Goes Bankrupt
Palo Alto, California, April 1, 2018 -- Despite intense efforts to raise money, including a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt. So bankrupt, you can't believe it. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2018
There are many chapters of bankruptcy and, as critics so rightly pointed out, Tesla has them *all*, including Chapter 14 and a half (the worst one). — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2018
Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.

This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?
