“If you want to start on or continue your journey of becoming an effective strategic leader, then you should read the book “Leadership in Strategy Execution.” It is an excellent collection of important lessons to help make one a successful leader. Venkat has provided insight into issues not covered in other leadership books such as the chapters on “Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.” and “Be in the Moment”. There are many practical lessons featured throughout the book and it is written in a manner where one can literally pick and choose the particular area(s) of focus to improve their leadership skills. I have been involved with many leadership teams in my career and have read dozens of leadership books. Written as a tutorial and reference manual, I think this book is one of the best resources a leader can have!”

I realized bigger the problem, the more extraordinary the life. My problems are no longer a barrier. They are the stepping stones to living the life I love. If you want to be the person who people say yes to, I recommend carrying this book wherever you go.”

“Leadership in Strategy Execution sticks out in my mind because rather than focus on outward focused management strategies, it emphasizes the importance of looking inward first. Making sure that you fully understand your own actions and thoughts is a prerequisite for managing and mentoring others. It is an approach I had not considered before and is a healthy and helpful way to view leadership challenges.”
“Venkat clearly lays out the tools required to develop and enahance your leadership skills. The content is structured in a straight forward and comprehensive format. The two lessons on ‘Focus’ and ‘Be in the Moment’ has already made a significant impact on my daily work approach and productivity. I’m looking forward to the ongoing development of behavioral changes this course teaches to execute and succeed in the daily work environment.”
“‘Leadership in Strategy Execution’ is truly an accelerator to become a leader.
What usually takes around 20 years of experience and hard lessons learned along the way, Venkat compresses into 18 lessons full of wisdom. This master piece, written in a very concise and yet elegant style, forces the reader to look inward to remove the shackles inhibiting them to become a leader, and uncover the gifts hidden in the attic of their heart.
Brace yourself as you embark on this journey with Venkat applying the ‘DO’s’, discovering the ‘KNOW’s’ and becoming the ‘BE’s’. You are entering an accelerator. Do not be afraid to see the particles of your leadership style being accelerated and smashed at incredible speeds. ‘Leadership in Strategy Execution’ will force you to observe yourself through a fine beam, develop new skills and become a leader.”
