7 Questions with Abhijeeth Raj Heerekar

.


1. What have you found most challenging as a CEO or executive of a large enterprise?

Disruption and swift adaptation in recent times.


2. How did you become a CEO or executive of a large enterprise? Can you please briefly tell the story?

It's a journey that takes 15 plus years of accepting failures and turning it into opportunities and stepping up over them each time, one at a time.


3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?

A marketer's day has to be priority based as we are on it 24/7


4. What's the most recent significant leadership lesson you've learned?

Trust your team and they will fight your battles. Not all battles can be fought. We should be left alone.


5. What's one book that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?

Good to great


6. How do you build leadership capacity in a large enterprise?

Faith in individuals and provision to explore, research, learn, adapt, nurture and allow them to fail. Leadership is not an overnight trait to be acquired in a day.


7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a CEO or executive of a large enterprise so far?

Everyday life would push you to give up and the people hold you strong to see sunlight with a smile again.
