Attributes required in a Leader
Aakanksha believes that any leader should be an expert in their business field, who knows all the nitty-gritty details of their business and have a deep understanding of all the core skills required. One should also have the humbleness and openness to acknowledge their shortcomings and learn from their mistakes. To hire, train and incentivize right talent is also a vital trait, which a leader should have. If any leader bypasses these qualities and expects top class results from the employees will only turn out to be a disappointment, she asserts.

Another critical quality, which a leader must possess, is the “vision to look into anything without a set of preconceived notion.” This helps a leader to explore and invent something new, which might turn out to be the new fuel for the engine of company’s growth. Aakanksha has this quality, and she always has a fresh perspective on any given task which helps her in delivering “out of the box” and “innovative” solutions.
