    The book would be useful for personal career and industrial growth. I liked it because of its conversational style, which is rare for an Indian author. The language which is used is very simple, without jargons, which everyone can relate to, making it overall a good read. Normally these practical different examples shared are only available when you meet a leader of quality in seminars/presentations. The book is more than value for money.

    Examples used are thought provoking & real life situational. The contents explained in the book are not available in any other books or course or institute’s syllabus, which I have attended/read. This makes it interesting for me. The tactics mentioned in the book, can be used by leaders of any stream, including marketing, hr, hospitality/service industry. The style of delivering thoughts, is in presentation style. It is the best eye opener for the Managers and leaders.

    Real life example which brings our difference from a text book & class room prospective. He doesn’t need ppt as such being a good orator. Jyoti, IIM Ranchi He quoted examples which were self-explanatory. His practical approach to answer questions was great. My key learning were HR facts; connecting more than correcting and importance of updating ourselves. Deep Shikha, IIM Ranchi I would love to have Dr Malhotra as a Visiting Faculty. He shared very interesting examples and incidents. My key learning was just observing him present and converting key learnings into action terms in written forms. Himanshu, IIM Ranchi Dr Malhotra should come back and make us understand the basics of HR in practical life and how do we need to learn from it. I enjoyed his interaction with the batch and relevance of the presentation. My key take away was in terms of the level of commitment and key attributes of Human Resources. We want him to show us how we can improve our learning in these couple of years? Prakash, IIM Ranchi

    Failure happens because one’s idea is not properly implemented or executed, one may have big dreams but what is required is successful execution. Overall the lecture was very informative, engaging and enthralling for the student managers. Best Quote: Without Empowerment, Talent is Zero.

    –Good leaders always produces good leaders but not so good leaders and scared leaders only produce followers. –With great powers comes great responsibility. Leadership brings responsibility to influence the thought process of followers.

  • Somraj Dey

    It is very well articulated specially the generation wise engagement pattern was remarkable. I think this should be a must read for all corporates irrespective of the stream he/ she is working. This will also help the working manager to understand the scenario of Gen X, Gen Y and the Baby boomers. The current scenario – The leadership during uncertain times which is worth mentioning. Lastly I was very enlightened by all the concepts and has recommended the book in my organization for all to read.

    The overall coverage is quite comprehensive and deals with this subject both from employee’s point of view as well as from the employer’s perspective. The Key message which is sought to be given is that “employee engagement drives customer engagement, productivity and organization performance “so true in context of today’s VUCA environment. In fact, Ch 13 solely deals with it. The book has been written in Simple, lucid, easy to read style; backed by adequate simple examples with Important points mentioned in the boxes & Key leanings summarized at the end of each chapter, the emphasis all throughout has been on simple implementable ideas in Indian context.

    Your lucid style of writing, reminds me of Late Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam. A good self-help book for people leaders and students of human resources/management.
