E17 - The Leadership Pipeline (Author - Ram Charan et. al) - with Nishant Saxena

June 30, 2021

In this episode our guest host Madhavi Ravanan, SI Delivery Head at Nokia, returns to the podcast to discuss the book The Leadership Pipeline by Ram Charan, Stephen Drotter and James Noel. Our guest for the episode is Nishant Saxena, CEO, International Markets, Cipla.

Companies have seen highly skilled employees grow quickly in the first few years of their career but they slow down as they transition to take the position of managers. The Leadership Pipeline by Ram Charan shows why such a phenomenon occurs and what it takes for companies to nurture leadership at every level within the organization. 

Nishant shares his learnings from the book, advice on the key to success for first-time managers, what is the skill set required by general managers and functional managers to succeed in their roles, and how companies can grow leaders from within an organization.
