Pavan previously worked in the corporate field when he realized that most of the issues faced by the organizations were people issues. Suddenly there was an intense shortfall of leaders who could inspire people and develop the skills.

Tailor-Made Programs to Meet the Requirements

Pavan believes that leaders all across the industries are the same, it’s the goals that may differ from leader to leader. Based on this evaluation he created programs that can help the organizations in focusing on the development of specific areas. Explain his theory he further asserts, “Leadership across all industries is the same, the difference comes from what an organization wants to focus on developing, based on the 29 Leadership competencies. Hence every workshop that we design and conduct is tailor-made to meet the requirement of that particular organization.”

Pavan’s opinion on leadership and his approach is different from that of others. His leadership techniques are both a mixture of his experience and influential books. The market is flooded with books giving advice on leadership approach; however, Pavan has his pick of books that have influenced him through his journey.  Namely ‘Lead without a Title’ by Robin Sharma: In this book, Robin says that old leadership is obsolete, today you need no title to be a leader and anyone can be a leader if he works on the foundational principle of self- leadership.

Apart from this, books that are essential for leaders, as they learn how to help others reach their full potential are Leading beyond the ego’ byJohn Knight, ‘Developing Leaders Around you’ by John Maxwell, ‘Triggers’ by Marshall Goldsmith and ‘The Art of Leading collectively’ byPetra Kuenkel.  These books emphasize the fact that tackling today’s crisis effectively requires a new form of leadership.

He shared his advice and pain pointed few like, professionals mostly believe that individual skills are sufficient and not being collaborative would not affect his/her leadership. In addition, leaders tend to blame things that are not in their control by depleting their own energy by talking about it and thereby not taking account of their lives. Also, one only focuses on developing their functional skills and not developing people skills, which they need to become Emotionally Intelligent.
