One of the primary requisites to being a good leader is the ability to teach well because at some strange in life I was in the lowest rung of the corporate world and made my way up only by learning from mistakes. The task of owning up to our mistakes and the willingness to learn – Learning is a Life long process and I learn something new every single day from my kids at GURUKULAM.

Also its important to practice what you preach as I firmly believe that leading by example is the best way to lead. Open Communication is very important because that’s the only way by which a message can be conveyed to the team and it empowers every single team member to be at their best.

My philosophy in short would be: A very clear mission, a vision and an atmosphere and culture conducive to success. Efficient leadership is all about helping people grow along with you. Its more about team work

2. Given the chance, how would you redefine woman entrepreneurship?

An extremely confident, creative and capable young woman with exceptional communication skills capable of achieving financial independence individually, aiming at keeping our traditional roots in place and keeping our kids abreast of cultural knowledge thereby tapping an area left untapped – Shloka Education and also staying in pace with her personal, family and social life.

Simply – “Transform your passion into your profession”

That’s true Woman Entrepreneurship to me.
