Professor M.S.Rao Successfully Led Video Conference on his Award-Winning Book ‘21 Success Sutras for Leaders’ in Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

Dear friends,

I am excited to share with you that I was invited by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on November 18, 2015 to share my knowledge with their leaders through video conference on my award-winning book ‘21 Success Sutras for Leaders’. This book was ranked as one of the Top 10 Leadership Books of the Year for 2013 (San Diego University) I enjoyed interacting with their igniting executives who were very passionate about learning. They asked several questions on career, leadership and CEOs. I enjoyed interacting with them. Here are the 21 success sutras to acquire to grow as a great leader:
1.         Leadership is a Responsibility, not a Badge of Honor
2.         Character Counts, not Charisma
3.         Be a Coach, not a Critic
4.         Build Bridges, not Barriers
5.         Fight for Pretty Things, not Petty Things
6.         Strive for Excellence, not Perfection
7.         Failure is only a Comma, not a Full Stop
8.         Never Say ‘No’ too Soon and ‘Yes’ too Late
9.         Praise Publicly and Punish Privately
10.       Spread the Fame in Success and Take the Blame in Failure
11.       Listen to all and Take Your Call
12.       Walk Your Talk
13.       Deal People Differently
14.       Leaders Command Respect
15.       Don’t Blame Circumstances
16.       Don’t Compete, Collaborate
17.       Don’t React, Act
18.       Think Global, Act Local
19.       Invest in People
20.       Everybody is a Leader
21.       Soft Leadership is the Heart of Leadership

Also, I shared the above sutras with senior global leaders and CEOs in Malaysia and successfully keynoted ‘Visionary Leadership 2015 Malaysia’ URL;

  7. I felt glad to attend your presentation on 18th Nov (Wednesday). I liked your insights on 21 Sutras for leaders. All along I believed charisma is more important, you made us to understand character is more important than charisma.

    I find it amazing to learn about Chanakya's 4 fold strategy, Sama (Persuade, inform), Dhana (Reward, Motivation), Beda (Differentiation, compare) and Dhanda (Punish, reprimand, fire). Until that time I did not realize how insultive it is to compare someone.

    I liked the Sutra titles and nice quotes shared you, especially this one by John C Maxwell, "Leaders who tend only to business, often end up losing people and business. But leaders who tend to people usually build up people and the business"

    I felt energized to learn the importance of soft leadership.

    Thank you very much, appreciate your kind gesture to share your wisdom to all of us over a video conference and all the very best for you to achieve your vision 2030, Creating one million global leaders.
