Inspiring leaders from the front, taking initiative.

Saurabh joined my team immediately after graduating from his college. Due
to the nature of our project he was one of the few freshers we had ever
inducted into our team. His outstanding performance during his training
programme gave me the confidence to put him directly into interaction with
the client. I was always impressed by his demeanor which far exceeded his
experience, and I believe he would ideal for your course of choice.

His most outstanding trait is his sense of initiative. If there was something
that he believed in, he was not afraid to say it. Not caring if what he was
saying was popular or not, he would always be honest with his beliefs. He
would back up his arguments with reason and logic, along with a lot of
research. There was this one time when he presented to me a case of why
we should move away from a particular technological framework as it would
help reduce our costs and improve productivity. Even though his
suggestions could not be implemented, I was impressed by the effort he
had put in.

He should try and be more open with his colleagues. Asking for help should
not be perceived as a sign of weakness, but of strength. I hope going
forward he learns this and implement it in his life.

I have known Saurabh for over two years now. We met each other when
we were working on our Research paper during our final year in
Engineering. The project spanned a period of 6 months, and we met each
other at least once a week for this purpose, and frequently on a less formal
basis.

We both put our diligent efforts for the project and later we published it as a
research paper in Cogent Engineering, Taylor and Francis Journal. In spite
of his busy schedule, he always made time for the project evincing passion
and strong motivation to utilize what he had learnt. In addition to his strong
analytical skills, his work with managing team dynamics was critical to the
success of our project.
Managerial, Great negotiation skills, Tremendous sense of initiative, highly
organized, great team-player and able to handle a complex process from
above, delegating when necessary and always keeping his finger on the
pulse of things.

However, I feel that in some occasions in the past he has been somewhat overconfident in his abilities to deliver
coverage on certain stories and events at times stories and interviews would cancel at the last moment.
Although our line of work is very dynamic and last minute changes are part of the operation, there have been
instances where he conveyed confidence and even promises that coverage would turn out a certain way, when in
the end the result was different. I believe that Joe needs to temper expectations in order to minimize last minute
changes. I have raised these issues with him and while commending him on his ideas, I suggested that he not be
blinded to the details by the broader picture. Joe was very responsive and welcoming of my comments and I
believe he has taken this to heart as I have not seen evidence of such a tendency since. Overall, Joe is very
thorough in his work and his confidence is central to the challenges he seeks. A recent story he produced was
met with skepticism when first proposed, but he convinced us of its importance. The final report was powerful
and had massive impact.

I have known Saurabh since he joined our team at TCS as a Software


Engineer, post completing his initial training with TCS. During our stint
together, I served as his immediate mentor within the team. Unlike others
who liked being spoon fed, Saurabh enjoyed learning new concepts and
implementing them. I observed this quality in him and found his dedication
and assiduity commendable. As a result he was eventually selected as a
single Point of Contact for one of the key initiatives for our Client, which is
one the largest Fortune 500 Companies associated with TCS.

As Joes superior, one thing that struck me about him was that when he believed in something, he was not afraid
to say it. Even though it may have been viewed in his superiors eyes as not nice, or not popular, he was honest
about his beliefs. Joe and I sometimes thought differently about things and we would argue for hours with
enthusiasms and passion. His arguments were always backed up with reason and logic, as well as research.
Although I was his superior and more experienced then him, more then once I was convinced that he was right
and changed my decision. When reason was on my side, Joe accepted it without having any ego issues about
being wrong.

His innate intellectual curiosity impressed me, when he joined our team. He
has genuine desire to learn new concepts, which combined with his out of
the box thinking allows him to come up with innovative solutions to
problems. He excelled during his Initial training within the team, where he
was awarded as the Star of the Learning Group among new associates.
Over time I found enough confidence in his ability, to allow him to take the
bulk of the responsibility within the project. Towards the end of his time with
the organization, he also started delivering knowledge sessions to new
joiners, which is usually not expected of fresh associates.

At my current job I'm working as a business developer/growth hacker for a


Startup that works in the gaming and entertainment industry. Prior to this
I've worked as a Software Developer for TCS. Over the stints that I've had
with both these organisations, I've had the opportunity to work both on the
technical and the business side of the Industry.

Outside of my work I enjoying following football as a sport. Being an


impassioned supporter, I like to blog about the game in my free time. I've
also worked as a member of the Social Welfare Club at my School.

As an individual I've always been a person who doesn't shy away from
taking initiative. Throughout my education I've held differing Positions of
Responsibility that have allowed me to mature not only on a professional
but also on a personal note. Also something that I've consciously tried to
build on over the years has been my response to stress, which has helped
me immensely over my career.

Sharing responsibility in a group setting is something that I have been


trying to improve in my life.

During my under-graduation degree I got the opportunity to work as a


member of Placement Cell. Serving as a representative of our batch, my
responsibility extended to fostering corporate alliances with institutions,
which helped in achieving one of the best placements for the batch.
We are an early-stage startup wanting to make a difference in the multi-
billion dollar home services industry. Our customers love our product. We
want your help to get more customers and to keep them happy.

Having been part of a number of committees at my Undergraduate University and during my


formative years in school, I would like to be given an opportunity to continue on that journey at DMS
IIT Delhi as well.

Being in a B-School isnt just about the academics; its about the overall personality development
that a person achieves over the time one spends there. The network that one fosters over the time
they spend in a B-School serves as ripe fodder for their careers ahead. I feel that, the Industry
Interaction Committee being one of the most active in the campus would help me greatly in this
regard. Serving as the face of DMS IIT, the IIC is responsible for maintaining synergy with the outside
industry and the campus. Thus, it would be a privilege for me to be a part of such an initiative0
