7 Questions with Amit Martyris

.

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

The most challenging part that I have found as a CEO is to make people, especially the employees, visualize our goal exactly the same as I see. I have found it quite difficult to convince them to look at a bigger picture for overall growth of the enterprise.


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

I was brought up in a financially unstable environment and therefore I had set a target to achieve the power to have freedom of getting what I want without having to think twice. Besides, I have always been a very ambitious person and definitely not into mediocrity.


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

Everything is planned but not planned! I have only one plan and that is to only sleep after completing whatever I have thought to get done in a day. And that, well, is very planned.


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

Trust your instincts about your employee and your team. Emotional Intelligence is a heavy skill you gotta have.


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?

Start with Why is an amazing book that has had a profound impact on me. The gist of leadership ultimately boils down to the way you think, act and communicate with people around you and this book has taught me how to do so in a perfectly splendid manner.


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

Keep learning and improving but never forget to involve your team while you do so


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

Believing in yourself and believing you can achieve success is one thing that keeps you moving forward. I started this company with less than 100 dollars and never backed out because I believed in myself.
