If you want employees to become productive there is going to be a point where the leader has to change the environment. I have worked in an oppressive work environment before, and I hated to come to work. When you feel there is no room for asking questions or making mistakes everything becomes a nightmare. It is the managers and company leaders that have the power to bring forth a different type of atmosphere. Vijay Eswaran has managed to author books that provide the right approach to leadership. He has also help employees cope with their environment when they are not in the best work atmosphere.
Eswaran has done this with public speaking on one front. He has the power to change the lives of those that hear him through his words. Eswaran has done a lot over the years to make the most of the experience by relaying messages of a positive nature. He has become someone that has documented his own experiences in his rise to leadership and passed this on to others. In “18 Stepping Stones” he talks about arising from your stupor and accommodating every change. I found this book to be spot on because he just told the truth with few words. I found myself nodding in agreement as I read this book because it truly is the pathway to success that Eswaran suggests that it is.
The thing that makes this “18 Stepping Stones” such an effective book is the size. This is a lightweight book. There are not a lot of pages and I like that. This works because people like myself don’t have a lot of time to read. I have been to workshops where I have been given large self-improvement books. The content may be great, but then there is no opportunity to digest all of the content because I have no time to read it.
What Eswaran did that made a lot more sense is push the book out to readers in a simple format. He used everything that he learned in the workplace and bundled this into a neat little package. I know that he could have written a lengthy book with all of his years in a leadership role, but he saw that it was effective to keep things light. He made it up in his mind to let people know that there was a way motivate without being overbearing.
Eswaran certainly has become one of the most favorable leaders around the globe because he has a different strategy to life. People can appreciate what he does because his written word reaches out to the masses. He has been able to really change the lives of his employees.
