Pune (Maharashtra) [India], September 29: The fear of not being good enough, unfulfilled potential, anxiety around the future, finding a purpose-driven career, inability to harmonise between work and life lack of meaningful work – do you resonate with these challenges? Have you been trying to figure out how to address them? Do you believe expert guidance can help you uncover these questions and enable you towards solutions and fulfilment?
If your answer is yes, then the book ‘The Elephant At The Dinner Table’ authored by Amit Nagpal, launched earlier this month, is the right pick to give you compelling solutions to your queries.
“This book is all about sharing my experiences via 33 real-life short stories and anecdotes to encourage readers to stay curious, learn from leaders, engage better with teams, and more. This book chronicles my journey as a young boy from a small town with limited resources, who began as a Medical Representative in 1988 and ended up as the Head of Training at Infosys BPM in 2010”, shares Amit Nagpal. Amit is a Leadership Facilitator, ATD Master Trainer, Co-Active Coach ®, Performance Consultant, Global Speaker, and an Author.
In his view, this became possible primarily because of the following reasons:
- Focus on strengths
- The attitude of a team player
- An advocate of lifelong learning
The book authored by Amit Nagpal weaves real-life experiences of over 31 years, with five years of dedicated research, interviews with successful leaders across the globe and a beneficial resource bank. “I wish to take these learnings to the larger audience to inspire them as they progress towards their leadership goals and hence, this book”, he adds.
The target audience for the book is management students, aspiring, entry-level and mid-level leaders. Eight topics are chosen and validated via his interactions with over 300 leaders and management students spread over five years.
- Employee Engagement
- Emotional Intelligence
- Strength-Based Leadership
- Client Connect
- When Leaders make mistakes
- Learning by following- seeking Mentors
- Becoming a Learner for Life
The book’s format is simple and easy to understand –
- What did I learn?
- What does academia say? (Deep-dive research)
- What do the leaders have to recommend? (Best practices and more).
“A valuable resource guide for leaders and management students” is the foreword of Raman Roy, Former Chairman at NASSCOM and MD at Quatrro Global Services.
“I have also curated a handy digital “Learning Wall” accessible 24*7 on any device. (Link is available in the book). It has a list of resources (i.e., links to articles, books, and video links to take a deeper dive and explore the topics further). I keep updating the Learning Wall every month to ensure the content stays relevant and fresh”, says Amit.
The 207 pages book, ‘The Elephant at The Dinner Table’, has been published by one of the top publication houses, Rupa Publications and is available on Amazon and Flipkart (hardcover and Kindle versions). The hardcopy is priced at Rs.500 and the kindle edition at Rs. 445. https://amzn.to/3yIs5jL
