Leading Remotely in Uncertainity
In these surreal times, there is a tendency for us to seek some certainty and clarity when the only truth is uncertainty, ambiguity and volatility. But understanding the risks and threats on the horizon, and yet remain optimistic and hopeful, is the ask of every leader today. How do you lead in these times, how can you motivate your teams remotely, and how can you be as prepared as possible for different eventualities in this unprecedented situation? There is an overload of information that pulls us in different directions - from complacency to overreaction, from calm to paranoia, and understandably so. This session covers how we could develop perspectives, maintain the morale of our teams and prepare them for the challenges of the future.
Leadership at 26000 Feet
This inspiring and flagship session is designed to share a perspective on Leadership that is different from how it is seen from corporate board rooms and offices. The session is based on the combat leadership skills demonstrated by the leaders of the Indian Armed Forces as they lead troops into some of the most difficult military operations, under daunting circumstances. During the session, the participants are taken on a journey through the eyes of a combat leader. The experience is interactive and motivating, leaving participants with key answers to questions including the age-old statement. Why leadership is a trait that can be learnt and not born with!

While many sessions and books address the economic, historical and statistical aspects of India, Raghu deals with the subject in an unconventional manner.

Raghu’s session is customized to suit the client's needs and gets to the heart of important questions that will shape anyone’s experience in India including: Why are Indians the way they are? Why are nuances such as hierarchy, consensus, deliberation etc. so important in the Indian context? Why do different parts of India need different management approaches?
