Working with diverse teams and different skillsets and ability to extract the best out of the pool of Teams working in various geographies, businesses and domains. Ability to adapt to a dynamic environment and embrace change as an opportunity and not as a step out of the comfort zone......adopt newer ways of working and above all listen to suggestions and being opened to change rather than a closed mindset. Refer proven and time-tested processes but not hard code them to ways of working as something that might have worked earlier might not work in the present scenario as there has been an addition to the moving levers involved.</p><p>Above all build a culture of excellence, effectiveness and efficiency with an eye towards developing Immediate Team members and showcasing a career path and pride in what they are expected to deliver. Going that extra mile and encourage inquisitiveness and building a sound backup where the foundation of the role is not dependent on people but robust processes that are current and ever adaptive and flexible within the remit of legal, regulatory and local compliance guidelines.</p><p>Harnessing the synergies of extended Teams and increase capability by encouraging Ideas with rock solid plans for putting thoughts into action.</p><p>E.g. Not just ideate but brainstorm how to achieve the desired outcome and build in contingencies/response plan in case milestones are not met. Basically, have a vision to see it through the finish line and should not be a check box exercise.</p>
