Episode in a Tweet: Enlightened leadership goes beyond servant leadership. Enlightened leaders help their teams live their best lives and make their dreams come true.
Background: I met Rajeev at a YPO event in Rio di Janeiro, and we hit it off immediately. I loved his leadership philosophy and his “Kapur Rules” on Instagram, where he serves up bite-sized leadership tips you can act on immediately.
During this episode, Rajeev and I discuss the future of leadership, which he describes in his book Chase Greatness: Enlightened Leadership for The Next Generation of Disruption. He shares his vision of the future of work and how leaders must prepare for the next phase of disruption. Rajeev also tells us about TWGNs, which stands for This Week’s Good News, a practice he put in place to get his team to focus on the current week’s positives rather than what didn’t get done. He shares how he came up with the title of his book and why he believes enlightened leadership is the new servant leadership. Have a listen and let me know what you think!
