News Desk, News Nation 360 :  The late Chandramouli Venkatesan’s third book titled TRANSFORM was completed just before he succumbed to pancreatic cancer. It was intended to be a part of a longer series of books he wanted to write to help guide people to better navigate their careers. In this new book, published by Penguin, Mouli does what he does best, highlighting the most important ways to grow and improve through a key skill – people management. Having a proven 29-year track record across companies like Asian Paints, Onida, Mondelez (erstwhile Cadbury) and Pidilite, Mouli has worked across multiple disciplines and brings all his experience to life through the insights he provides in this book. During his career, Mouli observed that people management skills are a near-universal requirement in all industries, and their impact in making a person successful is high. He also found that the people at the top are not necessarily the most technically competent or the most creative, but they were almost always good leaders and managers – making them good at people management. He viewed people management as one of the four key levers

to achieving success in one’s life & work. This book is based on a development program Mouli used to run called “Lead & Manage”. The book aims to bust certain myths we have – such as “leaders” only being those with leadership built into their role, like a CEO. In fact, he argues that no matter your role, your actions must be to both lead and manage simultaneously. Anand Kripalu, Managing Director & CEO, EPL stated that Mouli has been one of his best reporters. The book shares insights on people management to help young managers move up the corporate ladder fast. He is sure the book will leave a lasting impact and accelerate the careers of those who read it. According to Dr Ranjan Banerjee, Dean – BITSoM, how do you grow your people and in doing so, grow yourself? As somebody who has been both CEO and HR head, Mouli is/was uniquely placed to speak about this. Clear, simple and actionable, this is a must-read for both aspiring and current leaders.
