The masters of culture and leadership have put together their point of views across the new leadership behavioral nudges.


Organisations have invested years in shaping up the leadership behaviours and in building a culture of high performance and committed workforce. All of this is at stake today, owing to the ongoing pandemic – one of the biggest health crisis ever – Covid19, pushing every organisation to think differently about their leader behaviours to build a resilient organisation, and a thriving culture.

From open door policies to independent work from home desks, from
conference room to dinning table virtual meetings, from a group yoga class to virtual well-being sessions – everything has gone the virtual way. The overall connectedness is in question.

Dr. Brad Shuck, Strategic & Academic Partner BI WORLDWIDE & Program Director HR & OD, University of Louisville, KY along with Sumit Taneja, VP and Global Rewards Head, WIPRO and Ashok Rai, Director HR, Altran have put together their point of views across the new leadership behavioral nudges, how organisations are pivoting to digital and role of leaders as torchbearers in digital 'culture' transformation.
