Transformative leadership in an age of dynamism and discontinuities

transformative leadership

The organisational landscape is undergoing a remarkable transformation, as myriad business and societal shifts are creating discontinuities about the work we do, the composition of our workforces, and the nature of our workplaces itself. These uniquely socio-technological challenges are impacting the human agenda in ways previously unimaginable, and it is making even the foremost of leaders take pause as they seek to regroup and reframe their growth strategies for the road ahead.

In this challenging milieu, leaders must seek to evolve and embrace a new set of fundamentals to succeed and outperform peers, even as they chase new growth horizons. A modern breed of leaders have emerged triumphant in the face of these eye-catching externalities, and their accomplishments are to be recognised in an exclusive platform celebrating their feats, the Most Influential Leaders of India 2023, powered by Marksmen Daily and brought to you by Team Marksmen.

This industry-centric platform delves deep into the minds of leaders and reveals stories unheard of, revealing answers to some of the most fundamental questions of our times, such as the criticality of leading with purpose, integrity, and empathy; or building high-performance teams that remain resilient in the face of adversity, and going so far as mulling over the very essence of new-age leadership.

A diverse lineup of power-packed speakers, including Dr. Kiran Bedi, IPS (Retd.), Former Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry; Mayank Kumar, Co-founder & MD, upGrad; Vikram Gupta, Founder, and Managing Partner, IvyCap Ventures Advisors Pvt Ltd.; Kalyan Ram Madabhushi, COO, Aditya Birla Chemicals; Rohit Pathak, CEO, Birla Copper (Hindalco); Sebi Joseph, President, Otis India; Satish Sundaresan, VP- Global Strategy and Managing Director, Elektrobit India; Suresh Kalra, President Asia and Managing Director – India, hubergroup ,Mainak Dhar, Bestselling Author and VP & Managing Director, Kimberly-Clark South Asia; and Kishore Kumar Poludasu, Managing Director & CEO, SBI General Insurance, will scrutinise what it means to be a transformational leader, and how to reimagine and reinvent businesses to serve all stakeholders in the face of discontinuities.

This gala event will also bear witness to an exclusive felicitation ceremony, where a select clutch of leaders will be recognised as Influential Leaders of India 2023, thanks to their readiness to turn adversity into opportunity. The leaders recognised as part of this research-driven initiative have shown foresight and courage in the face of several discontinuities, and their resolve is worthy of emulation.

Sharing his thoughts, Akash Tiwari, Co-Founder and CMO, Team Marksmen Network, said, “The tapestry of the world as we know it is being rewoven, with multiple threads commanding our close attention. Socio-economic challenges, supply-side pressures, a rewiring of the workplace, and technological advances are just some of the changes to guard against. When viewed in totality, calling for a new breed of leaders to weave a future that is inclusive and sustainable. The leaders recognised as Most Influential Leaders of India 2023 have answered that clarion call, and laid down a marker of excellence for all to aspire to. We can only hope that others tread the path they have charted, and take us all to greater heights.”
