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.
