Business Leadership is a privilege and a sacred responsibility
Why? Because business leaders make the most impact in the world today. You are directly or indirectly affecting the lives and livelihood of 100s, 1000s, and millions of people.
Business performance is about leadership. Successful leaders are adept at growing profitable businesses utilizing their functional expertise (such as finance, technology, marketing, and manufacturing) and passion, drive, and accountability. They are directive, depend on hierarchical authority to motivate or get compliance, and tend to be guarded. In this state, self-interest is the primary driver, and self-centered ego fuels and propels us. This success understandably comes with high stress, low trust, weak leadership team collaboration, poor employee engagement, and a sense of emptiness and lack of fulfillment. It is a self-inflicted wound and doesn’t have to be that way.
I call them 3.0 Leaders. Successful leaders are 2.0 Leaders.
My Mission is to partner with successful 2.0 leaders in their journey to 3.0 Servant leaders and help them build exceptionally profitable organizations by infusing a culture where profit and purpose reinforce each other. Doesn’t it make practical sense to nurture an environment of professional excellence and personal fulfillment? We spend more than 50% of our waking time at work. Shouldn’t the precious time we spend at work be purposeful and focused on unleashing the full potential of the people and unlocking the full value of the organization?
This is simple to understand but not easy to implement because it requires us to go against the grain of conventional wisdom. It requires leaders to take a deep inner journey to change themselves first before changing others. This will give them the moral authority to inspire change. Every business conducts the same fundamental tasks: Communicate, make decisions, develop and implement strategies, evaluate, compensate, and incentivize its people. How we perform those tasks and partner with customers, suppliers and stakeholders determine our progress in building a purposeful and profitable organization.
This proven process guarantees progress when followed diligently and involves three practical steps:
1. Personal Mastery – Mindset. You will unleash your best version with a crystal clear personal and professional Vision.
2. Organizational Mastery – Skillset. You will build a high-trust and high-performance mutually accountable leadership team.
3. Blueprint. You will develop an Execution Roadmap that aligns and engages the whole organization to accomplish the twin objectives of exceptional financial performance and a great place to work.
If you want to learn more about taking this Journey, please choose one of the options below so I can understand your approach to Business Leadership and determine how best to help you.
Please schedule a complimentary session with me to discuss more.
Purpose and Profit mutually reinforce each other in Business. I am interested in further developing my leadership skills and building a cohesive leadership team and an engaged organization.
Please read my book available here and set up a complimentary session with me.
The primary purpose of business is to maximize profit. Activities focused on inclusive leadership, culture, and engaging stakeholders are distractions.

Sudhir has a deeper understanding than most and an uncanny ability to deliver the methodologies to successfully help organizations transform from the old paradigms of business to become, as he has coined it, ‘the change they want to be’. I have personally experienced two of those successful journeys with him.”
