Describe a time you adapted to unexpected business challenges and the lessons learned from it.

Throughout my academic and professional journey, I’ve encountered significant challenges. It’s inevitable to encounter challenges, obstacles, and unfavourable circumstances along one’s journey. Instead of being shaken by them, I firmly believe we should view these hurdles as opportunities to learn and grow.
One such memorable experience was while leading a team on a critical project for India’s largest PSU Bank. This project involved stringent timelines, diverse geographical areas, and stakeholders beyond our direct control. To navigate these complexities effectively, we capitalised on individual strengths, fostered open communication, and embraced adaptive strategies. Regular feedback loops and collaborative problem-solving were integral to our success. Despite initial hurdles, our cohesive efforts culminated in a project outcome that not only met but exceeded client expectations.
This experience highlighted the significance of teamwork, effective communication, and maintaining a positive outlook in overcoming challenges. As a leader, I learned the value of proactive problem-solving and seizing opportunities amidst adversity. By emphasising team strengths and cultivating a supportive environment, we not only achieved our goals but also bolstered morale throughout the project, contributing to long-term success and growth.

What principles guide your IT service management strategies, and how do you gauge their effectiveness?

Central to my IT service management strategies is the principle of breaking down tasks into manageable segments for efficient execution and continuous improvement. By focusing on iterative enhancements, we ensure a steadfast delivery of value throughout each phase, adapting to evolving needs and strategic goals. Understanding stakeholders’ perspectives and their definition of value guides our customer-centric approach. Regular assessment and agile adjustments drive our pursuit of service excellence, keeping us responsive to market dynamics and enhancing customer experiences. This proactive stance aligns with organisational objectives while fostering innovation and resilience in a constantly evolving landscape.

Balancing strategic planning and people management for high performance—how do you do it?

Balancing strategic planning and people management while maintaining high performance is central to my leadership approach. Guided by participative leadership principles, I empower individuals and teams through learning opportunities and leading by example. Embracing diverse perspectives fuels innovation and drives transformation, focusing on creating value and sustainability.
Moving beyond operational efficiency, I prioritise organisational success and personal growth simultaneously. My leadership hinges on empathy, accountability, and passion, fostering a collaborative work environment where every voice is valued. I view challenges as opportunities for collective learning and improvement, taking ownership of both successes and setbacks to inspire continuous progress.
I am dedicated to ensuring team wellbeing, quality work, and achieving shared goals. Mentoring emerging leaders in areas like self-awareness, effective communication, and emotional intelligence is a cornerstone of my leadership philosophy, fostering an environment conducive to both personal and professional growth.

How do you pursue personal growth, and what inspires you outside of work?

Balancing personal growth with professional development is pivotal to me. Recently, I completed a yearlong CXO course from IIM Lucknow, broadening my knowledge and networking with diverse professionals. I stay current with technology and management trends through industry forums and blogs by experts.
Outside work, I cherish time with my family: my wife Seema, daughter Arushi, son Archit, and daughter-in-law Hitisha. Seema’s culinary passion, developed since youth, inspires my love for food. Her success as an entrepreneur, notably as a brand ambassador for “Zomato Everyday,” is a constant motivation. Family and friends provide inspiration, nurturing both personal and professional growth. Cheers to family & friends for endless inspiration!
