7 Questions with Viney Joshi


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

Working with competing priorities and dealing with several intertwined projects all at one time

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

Started as a Rural Generalist and had a vision and worked on the vision and developed insight into issues related to Rural health which is my passion and with time the right opportunity came up in the right place at the right time

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

My working days are usually long, I am not a morning person. I get to work and click into gear having planned my priorities for the working day after reviewing my calendar the previous night and prioritising things . Often work late into the evening. Once I get home it is time to wind down and relax, read about politics and then read relevant to my work in medicine generally and Rural health and health service management.

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

Everyone tried to build themselves up. It has been my mission to harness and develop the confidence and skills of my team to recognise their talent and achieve something. It is important for them - a sense of purpose and achievement and for me it is fulfilling to see someone realise their potential.

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?

The art of success ( what everyone needs to know ) by James Melouney
It doesn't matter where you come from or what mistakes you've made. In fact, humble origins, false starts, and outright failure can be a biggest asset.

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

Valuing people, allowing people to recognise their own talent and empowering them to improve self confidence and self esteem and of course helping them to understand and realise their potential

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

I will just say the following
Never ever give up ; without a storm there’s never a rainbow. Develop a vision and work towards it and most of all
“Work in a team and there’s no I in a team”
