Vijay Eswaran lives a life philosophy that people should always live with gratitude and to the fullest because they never know how close they may be to having it all end. We can all come to terms with this reality that any day or moment could be our last one on earth. It causes us to live in the moment.
Vijay Eswaran also knows a lot about leadership and what it really means to lead. The true leader is the one who truly serves the people. True leaders always place service to others above self.
Any successful business person will also admit that serving others is the key to their success. Eswaran’s early teachings focused on the lives of Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and Mandela. These were ordinary people who grew in spirit to accomplish extraordinary things.
He also believes that people are the true assets of any organization. When leaders take good care of their people, the people take good care of them. Leaders are those who can care without reserve or restraint. Their ability to care is never based on conditions.
Sound core values can also serve as the pillars that sustain great leadership. The time that leaders use to grow and develop people professionally is also a critical element of strong leadership.
The power of vision goes a long way in shaping individuals and organizations. A strong leader has the ability to communicate their vision to their team. The team should also feel like they are part of the vision. As Executive chairman of the QI Group of Companies, Vijay Eswaran has a strong grip on what works in a team dynamic and what does not.
