S. Chakraborty, CEO,Fiinovation Indiaspoke of the paradigm shift of what leadership is today, he recalled Mahatma Gandhi words where he spoke of it was ‘the yester years when the leaders would be known by the muscles they use. Today they will be known for their capacity to bring their community along themselves.’ The new school of leadership which is waiting to be born looks at re- conceiving. He spoke of how leadership is no longer about flexing your muscle but has moved from ‘what’ to ‘who and how’. We need to look at stakeholder engagement that may or may not be the shareholder of the company.
