In this episode of Intersections, Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa has a conversation with Dr. Raghu Krishnamoorthy on the topic “The Future of Leadership Lies Within”.

In the post-pandemic era, trends such as the “Great Resignation,” hybrid work and employee well-being are creating a paradigm shift in organizational culture. These trends require us to go back to the basics to redefine the model of what it means to be an exceptional leader. The way we lead today needs to evolve to embrace the new future of work, workers and the workplace.

Based on Dr. Wadhwa’s recently published book, Inner Mastery, Outer Impact, we examine how Inner Mastery could provide the foundation on which leaders can tackle these shifts for their organizations — as they manage people and drive performance, equip their managers with new skills and tools to tackle the accompanying challenges, and help employees operate in an ever-changing landscape of continued disruption.

“Within each of us there are multiple selves. We need to identify which of these competing selves is our true self, and then make this true self prevail in life and leadership.”
Hitendra Wadhwa
