In her address, Prof. Neharika Vohra said, “The leadership challenges are complex and there is no one right answer. The leader does not impose a solution; the final solution emerges from the dialogue of all the parties.”
“All the parties learn from one another and learn more about the situation in the process and everyone must adapt one’s perspective in order, for a solution to emerge,” she added.
Prof Vohra said, “A leader is one who articulates the problem and make others to realize that together they can make the change happening. A leader is one who can offer hope, build community and see new possibilities. Leading is all about exercising leadership for the right problem at the right time.”
“A leader needs to have the capacity to hold the pressure and come up with the solution. Leading is actually about sensing the emotions of the group around you. The quality of a leader is to hear what has been unheard and represents them on the table,” she added.
