The inner motivation to bring out the best in students keeps me connected with the education sector
The curiosity of young minds and the sense of responsibility towards the society has kept me connected with the education sector. I believe the education sector plays a very vital role in shaping the future of our country. The inner motivation to bring out the best in students keeps me connected with the education sector. The sharing of knowledge and the ambition to be of value add to the students and the nation has been a driving force throughout my academic life.
I have an open mindset towards new opportunities and in creating a supportive environment
My philosophy of leadership is very simple. I believe in leading with an example. I would describe my leadership style as the democratic style as I am always open to new ideas of the professors, students and my team. I encourage them to give their inputs and involve my team to participate freely in the decision making. We work together during each decision making all the viewpoints are put across and discussed and then only a final decision is made. Also, I believe leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders and I am just doing that.
