Serial entrepreneur Rohit Mehrotra owns one of the fastest-growing tech services companies in America. Asked what wisdom he would share with future leaders, aside from a strong ethical compass, he said this:
“You must find the foundational principle that you believe in, and then bank everything on it. Think of yourself as an orchestra conductor. When you are directing the orchestra, your back is toward the crowd. You are not going to see how the crowd is reacting, but at the end of the day, that symphony is created to your unique satisfaction. If you lead with confidence and get that unique satisfaction, others will follow and find pleasure in your work.”
