As a leader, it motivates me when I can inspire those under me, and eventually leave a legacy. I am a believer in employee empowerment. It is beneficial to leaders and employees, and it promotes efficiency, productivity, and engagement. Ultimately, it drives me in that direction to know that the work that I'm doing today will
leave an imprint for the future,especially for the next generations. I have always taken different and difficult challenges some did not work in the allocated time frame, and I learned a great deal from those experiences. The immense amount of achievement one fathoms in striving to achieve and weathering the storm is another factor that drives me as the Managing Director.

Adaptability quotient which is far more reliable to make progress in the way we have been over the last 3 decades of my working life. The year 2020 and 2021 has brought the best out of me and thrived in flux created around us, as I identify myself as a leader who was able to bring out the best in my adaptive and forward looking leadership competence, even more nimble and agile "The best of my leadership came out at the time of global crisis" As a result, employee engagement ESAT (Employee Satisfaction Survey Result) -11 to + 51 points from previous survey, total improvement of 62 points from previous survey. Customer NPS increased incredibly at -44 to + 24 points from previous survey, total improvement of +68 points from previous survey.
