Ep 4 – Better human, Better leader with Atul Khosla, Founder & CEO, Leadership Et Humanité

Mindful Leadership Podcast with Shahana Banerjee : Episode 4

Have you ever met a great leader, …who isn’t a wonderful grounded human being as well? 

As intuitive as it sounds, it is unfortunately rare. Even though people leaders account for 70% of the variance in engagement (Gallup), 76% of US respondents either currently have or have recently had a toxic boss (Monster), and 75-90% of employees across different countries don’t believe their manager supports them when times get tough (BCG). 

The missing link for many leaders, is the seamless integration between, who they are, and how they lead. This connection and clarity, provides the much needed grounding in our frenzied and volatile world. 

In this episode of the Mindful Leadership podcast, we delve into leadership, what it is, what’s missing and what we can do about it, with my good friend and fellow disruptor, Atul Khosla, Founder and CEO of Leadership Et Humanité – a man on a mission to bring humanity back to leadership. Better human, better leader, is his mantra!

Learn more about Atul’s story, from growing up in a small town in India, facing the devastating loss of his father early in life, and how that shaped him, to his journey to become the SVP Talent & Learning at Mondelez, and then giving it all up to start Leadership Et Humanité.
