In the first episode of our new series CXO Leaderboard with Bhavna Dalal, she talks to Vivek Khanna of First Advantage. Khanna is one of those extraordinary men – he started off as a consultant, moved into management, made it big, quit to go teach in a high school, moved back to management, made it big again, went off to start a farm commune in rural Maharashtra, and moved back to management again. You may have noticed a couple of those career moves were not exactly orthodox.
In this episode, Khanna talks about how his journey has helped him answer some basic questions about modern leadership – How do you lead an office with both millennials and experienced workers? How do you make your employees feel empowered enough to run the business themselves? Whether you are a boss at a multinational corporation or the head of a two-man startup based out of your garage, Khanna’s advice is invaluable for anyone who considers themselves a leader.
