Venu Srinivasan, CMD, TVS Motor Company

A leadership lesson that I remember
Winner never quits; quitter never wins.

My biggest test as a leader was
Turnaround of TVS Motor Company in 1991.

The worst thing a leader can do
Stifle creativity of team members.

A book or movie I would recommend on leadership
Patton; Gandhi.

What I think is the difference between a manager and a leader
A manager focusses on “transactions” and a leader focusses on “transformation”.

The business leader I admire the most
Ratan N. Tata.

The political leader I admire the most
Mahatma Gandhi.

All good managers aren’t good leaders
