Breaking Corporate Status Quo

In this conversation Kapil explains that finding your voice is not just about how you express yourself, but about knowing your core values and identity and letting that drive everything you do. He emphasises the importance of being authentic rather than trying to simulate a persona.

Judith and Kapil discuss strategies for increasing influence, including leveraging your authentic voice and identity, as well as using tactics like personal branding, content creation, and networking. They caution against manipulation and emphasise the importance of coming from a place of being rather than just doing.

Kapil Kulshreshtha is a career coach focused on helping corporate folks find their purpose and build powerful careers.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.
