My friend and PLD classmate Zia Patel of Wolff Olins just published an interesting interview with Dr. Reddy’s Chairman and CEO, GV Prasad. It begins with a lovely quote: “Management is doing work through people, whereas leadership is developing people through work.”
There’s more, of course, but more importantly the story leads to a report called “Impossible and Now” that is extremely interesting and really worth the time. It condenses insights on leadership from 43 interviews with CEOs and surveys of over 400 employees at those companies.
I also liked the format – you can comment on any section, answer questions and see other comments. It seems like a conversation, which this topic invites and about which we all should discuss more – especially here in Brazil, nowadays.
