A TEAM IS A REFLECTION OF ITS LEADER – Mr. Naveen Prakash
If new age leadership is the generation’s path forward, then Mr. Naveen Prakash is the person who anyone can look up to, for inspiration. His vogue vision driven by forward-thinking has made him the highly distinguished Director of Global Logistics – a name heard by almost all. He has inspired every person across the company and beyond, with unseen leadership qualities that spoke of success with every step taken.
“I look forward to creating more leaders, not followers”, he expresses.
A PHILOSOPHY BORN OUT OF SIMPLICITY
Logistics, the movement of goods from Point “A” to “B” in a committed time frame, is a challenging field with aggressive competition, which our inspiring leader intends to win with nothing but simplicity in the process. He shares that his mission is towards making this experience better with a philosophy revolving around the 3 Es:
- Economical process
The 3 Es philosophy is the simplified formula of success unraveled by our leader, which is in sync with his belief that any philosophy must be focused towards bringing solutions to the customers.
BEHIND THE FIRST LOGISTICS COMPANY TO LAUNCH A MOBILE APP
“Our team’s focus is always on the NEEDS, DESIRES and PROBLEMS of the customers” states our leader, reassuring his vision towards building a sales-centric team that understands the customers better. He further states that the strategic approach towards sales-centricity and customer NDPs has made them outthink the rest in the field. The revolutionary ideas that were a product of this forward-thinking have made Global Logistics,
- The FIRST Logistics Company to Launch Mobile App
- THE FIRST & ONLY company in Logistics Sector to have a Loyalty Program, namely Global Privilege
Our leader is specially known to be behind the company’s efficient functions during COVID-19 which involved full-fledged services supported by online facilities. His eye for possibilities has been a breakthrough in the tough times.
BALANCING CUSTOMER-CENTRICITY & EMPLOYEE-CENTRICITY
As a man of inspiration, Mr. Naveen Prakash believes that customers and employees are equal in the eyes of a management. He looks forward to promote the aspirations of the employees and motivates them to achieve a good relationship with the management. He further ensures that this relationship helps the organisation remain “mindful” of the employees’ aspirations and attempt to work together, making communication, a two-way approach.
Our inspiring leader has been known to make positivity renounce for every employee, right from their recruitment, till their years of service in the company. Much in line with his vision, he shares that the major challenge is to “find employees with positive mindset” and “identify the training needs of every employee on-board”, simultaneously. He also believes that the solution lies in looking at the needs from an employee point of view – Job Stability, Positive Work Environment and Growth Opportunities.
“We promote not the ones we choose, but the ones who choose themselves and volunteer to face the next challenge” he states, expressing his unique employee-centric approach.
MAKING OF AN ORGANISATION CHERISHED BY THE EMPLOYEES
Mr. Naveen Prakash is seen not just as a Director of the reputed organisation, but as a cherished leader of the employees who value his vision. He is celebrated as the symbol of motivation and positive spirit in the organization who boosts the team with frequent occasions, office celebrations, cash incentives and more.
Our leader believes that motivation and enrichment of work culture are primary at work. He re-iterates that motivation is the driving force for the employees to keep up with their goals and stay on track. He assures that the motivation mantra is strengthened from the Day 1 of every employee till Day 45, by the end of which, the 45-day intense training would have already given the newly-hired, the ease in communicating better with the management.
LOOKING AT RISK AS A MOMENTARY SUBJECT
“Risk looks big only in the beginning. When you look back, it doesn’t seem like one. Some even look extremely trivial”, comments our inspiring leader on the perception of “risk”.
With a statement as strong as his belief, he illustrates the current “risk” of COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on work. He shares that the current counter-risk attempt is making sure that the team stays tougher, customers stay stronger and the business scenario stays better.
HOLISTIC APPROACH TOWARDS LEADERSHIP
Mr. Naveen Prakash looks at leadership as a 360 degree approach that is not centripetal, but centrifugal. He believes that leadership values encompass the connection with everyone across Team mates, Clients, Vendors and Overseas Business Associates.
“Learn delegation and networking with the professionals outside your domain, to get lateral thoughts”, advices our inspiring leader.
He believes that management under a good leader has a bird’s eye view that builds a strategic approach, promoting the flow of ideas across the organization. True to his belief, his leadership values have contributed majorly to the making of a successful organization at Global Logistics Solutions India Pvt. Ltd.
As a leader of the new generation, he is an avid thought leader who believes in ‘sharing the knowledge’ with everyone. No wonder he is a celebrated LinkedIn Leader whose voice reaches millions.
