Director’s Inaugural Speech

Posting here after a long time, running out of any spare time in life. I recently started my MBA, and coping the academic demands after 14 hours of daily work puts my mettle to ultimate test. I wanted to share the insights shared by IIM Lucknow director in his inaugural speech to our batch:

  1. This is a good time to be in Indian, this is a good time to be in India. This is a time to feel proud of our identity.
  2. Being an expert in something alone is not enough to handle complex challenges we are facing today,  it requires a holistic contextual awareness in a diverse range of areas. Leaders should improve this skill of larger perspective analysis.
  3. There will be highs and lows in our life. The real caliber as a leader lies in how we handle and react to the low in our life.
  4. Ethics is at highest premium in today’s world. Governance should be top priority in every leader’s life – both in personal and professional life.

The dean, and the chairman also welcomed us and shared their thoughts. I am moved by the depth of the faculty and diversity of the batch. Chairman explained the case based learning, and I can’t think of any better way to learn how to react to business situations. Looking forward to this exciting journey in one of the best academic institutes of India.

About Bikramjit

Please read a more interesting introduction at "About Me" section. I am an abstract thinker who is fun to watch in action. I not only generate new & better ideas for how things can be improved, but I also offer empowering courage to pursue them. I am exceptionally encouraging & motivating, and sometimes help others to reach their goals & dreams. People probably see me as a good mentor due to my patience and talent for giving direction. I am more expressive than introspective, more deliberate than spontaneous, more passionate than composed – and an assertive personality who does not hesitate to challenge anything in life!
