In recent years, India’s role as a driver of worldwide economic growth (with Brazil, Russia and China or the BRIC countries) has been recognized. With one of the world’s fastest growing economies as a base, many Indian businesses are running to take their place on the global stage. India is poised for future business growth. The situation demands a new kind of leader at all levels. Can the leadership talent needed to run behemoth organizations be developed as quickly as needed?

The new book, “Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today: Insights from Corporate India” (ISBN: 9788126528400) by Meena Surie Wilson and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) offers thoroughly-researched pointers on how Indian managers can become high-performing business leaders. The leadership development curriculum proposed in these pages is based on extracting lessons from on-the-job experience – Given that the workplace is the medium through which the essentials of leadership are learned, executives and managers at all levels need to know which experiences matter, what are the foremost lessons learned, and how learning occurs.

  • The 11 lessons in leadership essential for managerial effectiveness
  • Over 50 stories and 100 wise quotations from today's senior executives that portray how leadership acumen sharpens over time
  • Reflective exercises, self-assessments, and guidelines for self-improvement

The underlying research was conducted in cooperation with the Tata Management Training Center in Pune, India, and captures the experiences and leadership lessons learned by over 100 senior Indian business leaders. As such, it offers readers both a compass and a map for traversing the terrain of leadership development.

Early and mid-career managers will find a roadmap in these pages for steering their careers towards the echelons of executive leadership.
