Leadership in India and its dynamics, in today’s challenging global business environment, is a complex subject. A new book makes it easy.

Economic Times

This Extremely interesting book proposes a new look at the complex world and characteristics of India business leadership. It is based on author’s personal interaction and research on some of India’s leading businessmen and businesswomen, who have been very successful in transforming the organisations and the people they lead, into vibrant and growing entities.

Indian Management

Give interesting glimpses into the lives of some leaders who were in position at the right time to grab the opportunities of India Emergent. And that is the plus point of the book.

Business India

The Art of Business Leadership is a good attempt by Professor Balasubramanian to map leadership styles in paradigm. While many of the leaders have been interviewed, profiled, written about exhaustively in the various pink papers and business magazines, and now in business channels, this may be the rare occasion their views have been featured in a book. The selection of companies is an interesting mix of the public and private sector and also the leaders from a cross-section of the industry from engineering to pharmaceuticals, telecom and services. The book is a mix of the pedantic theory and interesting real life business.
