Foundation Day Lecture 2023

One needs to be an effective contributor to become an effective manager and one needs to be an effective contributor plus manager to transform into a leader, said V Kovaichelvan, Director, TVS Institute for Quality and Leadership.
Delivering a foundation lecture on the topic ‘Becoming and Being Visionary Leaders by Self Transformation’ organised by SDMIMD at its auditorium here on October 12, 2023, he said “When we talk about a leader's value it is very important. Becoming a leader and being leaders there is a difference that can happen only through self-transformation. If you look up medical education they study for 5 years and they have very good practice which is not the same in Engineering or MBA. All the talent comes from practice. Whatever we study, ultimately employable skills are required. In India education including in schools and colleges are not to the required level and the curriculum are not relevant”.
“If we want to build a strong house, foundation and superstructure are very important. In the same way if you want to be a good leader, good education and employable skills are equally important before you become an individual contributor to the organisation and can rise to the role of manager and can also become an effective manager before becoming a leader. Apart from this, unless you manage yourself you can’t become a manager” added Kovaichelvan. Students who were present in good numbers also clarified their doubts by posing a few good questions including whether frequent change in work will hamper their career for which Kovaichelvan came out with good answers.
Lt Col SN Prasad, Director of SDMIMD who also spoke on the occasion briefed about Foundation Day Lecture and its purpose. Dr. Nanda Kishore Shetty, Associate Professor, Dr. M Minhaj, Professor & Chairperson –PGDM were also present.
