7 Questions with Noor Mehal Kamal

.

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

Understanding the essentials of Diversity Management. Organizations are oriented towards incorporating diversity and inclusion as part of their strategy but they miss out on its broader essence by compromising on their organizational values.


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

Its simpler than I can ever put it in words, Follow your cause. Your inner calling. This is what you are sent for. The universe has a message for us, and it resides in encoding the inner calling.


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

By consciously knowing I have 24 hours and I need to design, structure, frame it around activities that can add meaning and value to my being. It starts with having a mental print of how and what my day would look like. Deep contemplation and reckoning of my surroundings keeps me on my toes.


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

Start with what you believe in. Inspire, Inspire and lead.


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?

Jinnah by Stanley Wolpert. Knowing that my identity is a product of the vision and wisdom of my founding father, Mr Jinnah, this book in and of itself dictates most of my daily actions. The need to remain authentic yet influential, humble yet assertive, transparent yet visionary. Therefore, claiming that the book lives in my heart and mind wouldn't be an understatement.


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

By trusting people. Listening to them with a kind heart. Genuinely being involved in matters, because it impacts each one of us in every way. By saying and living what you mean.


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

Starting my career off as an introvert, I would often think of myself as serving to be self sufficient. Until I was coached to believe, we all need everyone. This changed by view about socializing and I now make sure, I can make others feel better with my words alone. Therefore, we must challenge our beliefs.
