The leadership lesson I remember best
There is opportunity in every challenge.

The political leader I admire the most
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

The business leader I admire the most
J.R.D. Tata.

A book/ movie I would recommend on leadership
Chak de India/ 300.

What I think is the difference between a manager and a leader
A manager manages, but a leader creates institutions.

The worst thing a leader can do
Not trust his team.

My biggest test as a leader
Keeping the morale of my team high in the most adverse situations.

— As told to Puja Mehra
