Prakash Iyer is a Best-selling Author of books like The Habit of Winning and The Secret of Leadership. He is also a speaker who speaks extensively about leadership, teamwork and winning. He has already given multiple TEDx talks on those topics. I love the way he derive analogies from the simple things from our day to day life and share  powerful lessons on his talks. 

Before becoming a full time author and speaker in 2014, Prakash was  Managing Director of Kimberly-Clark Lever and in past has served in several leadership roles in different multinational companies such as PepsiCO, Hindustan Uniliver and so on.

His latest book is You Too Can,  where Prakash takes you up close and personal with twenty Indian entrepreneurs as they share the lessons that they have learned.

Some Questions I ask Prakash

  • How do you think a great team is formed. What needs to happen?
  • How do you derive lessons out of the smallest things such as leadership lessons from teabag or teamwork lessons from Matka fod?
  • Do you have mentors yourself? What do you look in them before picking them as your mentors?
  • What is that one vision of yours that you are very passionate about achieving?
