Confederation of India Industry launched an exclusive Leadership Talk series with the title “Leadership Connect i3 Series: Ignite Minds – Inculcate Innovation – Inspire to Aspire”. As part of the series, the first session was organised at CII Northern Region Headquarters here today. The emphasis of this initiative is to accelerate ahead with inspirational ideas and innovations.
The launch of the series took place in Chandigarh where Mr Vivek Atray addressed the gathering on the crucial touch points of igniting creativity, inculcating innovation and inspiration through aspirations. He is an author, advisor, mentor, motivational speaker and independent advisor. He retired voluntarily from the Indian Administrative Services and is the co-founder of Vibrant Advisory Services and Vibrant Networking Forum.
Mr Atray said that, “For a leader, it is extremely essential to find a spark within, to come out of a routine life and communicate his or her passion with others with conviction.” We need to win the battle of our minds and remove negative thoughts in order to excel in our work, he added. He also spoke about how fear and worry reduces our potential in both personal and professional spheres and hence we must attempt to mitigate the same.
Another topic covered during the session was of ‘emotional intelligence’ that one of the most significant attributes of a leader. A leader is supposed to maintain calmness and handle every issue with peace and intellect. He also mentioned that to see a change we need to be the change. A person need not be in a stratified high position to showcase leadership qualities; rather a leader outshines from within himself or herself.
This i3 Leadership series intends to bring together speakers who are entrepreneurs, innovators, venture capitalists, business model creators, consultants, policy-makers, academicians, support groups, business coaches and business practitioners to present and discuss innovation and success stories with the industry audience.
