Clients included Adobe, Boeing, Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Maxim and Oracle as well as global/entrepreneurial companies like Aztec, Advanta, BAE Systems, Lunar Design, Mastek, Olixir, Polaris, State Bank of India and Scintera Networks. The purpose of Prasad’s innovation/leadership coaching is to ignite the genius within individuals. Prasad’s unique competence is in helping his clients find their next significant step and take it.

Showing up for leadership… Ta Dah!: Bruce Avolio
Transformational leadership is of importance in Bruce Avolio’s thinking. Particularly around development, but also generally in terms of thinking about leadership that changes people, organizations and societies. Bruce Avolio has worked a lot with leaders in an extreme context. Whether it’s a financial trader who could make a decision that could cost their organization a hundred million dollars, or members of military units, police, SWAT or firefighters. Avolio stresses on a leader’s ability to reduce uncertainty, partly by realizing that one likely doesn’t have all the information needed. As a leader you should also build up a pretty strong and coherent unit, because when “the going gets tough” they have to feel comfortable to challenge you by giving you information that perhaps you’re not ready to receive, but you need to receive. A lot of things contribute to how well a leader performs when the extreme conditions set in. How authentic is the leader? How transparent? Are they someone that followers trust? Are they a cement head or are they somebody who has big ears and listens to people? Are they people who ask questions as opposed to provide statements? Are they ethical or not? Are they abusive or not?
Human Investment Leadership™ – Revolutionizing Your Company’s Competitive Edge™
With all the college courses, books, seminars, blogs, articles, and speeches on Leadership, “How successful are today’s Leaders?”
According to the Gabriel Institute:
• 60% of Company Failures are due to People Problems. My observation is that 100% of companies have had or currently have people problems. Is that a leadership issue?
• Actively Engaged Employees Make Up Less Than 1/3 of the Workforce. Does that mean two thirds of the workforce are not following the leader and not helping the company compete? Is that a leadership issue?
Human Investment Leadership™ is the NEW Paradigm for Company Leadership.
