The BMI session conducted on 4th of November’20 was graced by Mr. Gururajan Krishnarao, Senior Director, Amarante Consulting, U.A.E. The session on “Mirror-Mirror on the Wall” addressed the emerging trends of ‘Holocracy’ and about how the beyond management concepts and holocracy are interlinked.
The session began as the speaker elaborated on how the old dictums and management principles are being shattered, and a paradigm shift is taking place across the globe in managing the emerging organizational environment. There will be a bureaucratic structure in the fast-paced game. AI will be at your fingerprints and there will be rapid changes in the operating environment. There is a fierce competition where no company can assure that they are holistic in all functionalities. Complementing this trend is the current generation, who are enthusiastic to prove themselves as emerging leaders, and establish their niche. Beyond management is a concept where we don’t need managers. We need thought and action leaders who can deliver quick results. The fundamental skills to develop the same are cognitive flexibility, negotiation skills, emotional intelligence, creativity, critical thinking, and complex problem-solving abilities. It is essential to venture into the blind spots and leverage the open skills, to position oneself as an established leader.

“Mr. Gururajan Krishna Rao’s insight on cognitive flexibility, negotiation skills and emotional intelligence was very useful especially for the present situation. He also emphasized on the importance of creativity, critical thinking and complex problem-solving skills which will have a higher weightage going forward in the new markets. He gave a totally different angle on the Johari window and how one should adapt to the rapidly changing environment. Thanks to BMI team for inviting him as it was really interesting as well as insightful. Looking forward for more sessions like this.”

“A thoughtful session by Mr. Gururajan which takes us back to look through the mirror to realise and capitalize the real perspective of oneself. Now I have something to think upon even after the session. Also, thankful for his agile walk across generations and sowing the seeds of Holocracy in us. His echoing words – ‘Be the leader than just a Manager’ was empowering.”

“It gives me immense pleasure to assert the galvanising quotient of this mind-litting session about Holocracy. I am confident that every single participant would have felt the same. I wholeheartedly thank Mr. Gururajan Krishnarao sir for this excellent delivery of the subject matter in an interactive manner and edifying us about the subtle nuances of it. Several topics were quite new to us, but not anymore. Once again, I thank the organisers of this BMI session and Mr. Gururajan Krishnarao for his intuitive effort and time to immerse us into this exciting concept and we wish to have such inspiring sessions more often.”
