Raghu Krishnamoorthy on Why the Future of Leadership Lies Within
Play • 57 min

In this Intersections episode, Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa and Dr. Raghu Krishnamoorthy offer critical insights on:

  • How we’re moving from a “find it out” world to a “figure it out” world

  • What it takes to advance leadership from being business-centered to human-centered

  • Moving beyond outer metrics to ground leadership in inner metrics

  • How empathy and compassion can drive organizational performance

  • Moving from “getting the most out” to “bringing the best out” of employees

In the post-pandemic era, trends such as the “Great Resignation,” hybrid work and employee well-being are creating a paradigm shift in organizational culture. These trends require us to go back to the basics to redefine the model of what it means to be an exceptional leader. The way we lead today needs to evolve to embrace the new future of work, workers and the workplace.

Based on Dr. Wadhwa’s recently published book, Inner Mastery, Outer Impact, we will examine how Inner Mastery could provide the foundation on which leaders can tackle these shifts for their organizations — as they manage people and drive performance, equip their managers with new skills and tools to tackle the accompanying challenges, and help employees operate in an ever-changing landscape of continued disruption.
