What Makes You Rare & Valuable – Your Competitive Advantage!
Are you the First, Only , Faster , Better or Cheaper than the others in the market ?
I always keep asking this question to myself – not that there is any fear but when I look ahead , it helps me to prepare for the future.
Six years back, When I went to IIM , Bangalore to attend a Creative Marketing event for 3 days . I attended a presentation by an IT professional who turned out to be a booming entrepreneur ( Must be in early 50’s) with over 500 Cr. Turnover .
His vision, passion and focus was so clear and inspiring that made me take notice and he talked about how he was able to build the database of millions of farmers in rural areas which helped them not only to get easy loans from the banks but also many more services reaching out to them through his new portal.
By the end of his presentation, I had somehow agreed to follow him by executing my underlying plan and set my sights on building strong network where through capability building and professionals getting better job opportunities to fast track their careers.
Unlike other job consultants that covered multiple industries, I became obsessed with building my focus on Pharma & Healthcare industry to begin with.
But when I entered into the real world I realized how tricks of the trade work in this industry , As I was new, I had to make various decisions based on my gut feeling due to poor information & lack of resources, which eventually led me to deal with uncertainties, Changes and constraints head on.
The Competitive Edge
I always feel satisfied, when I am helping people to work on building their skills / capabilities so that they perform better and be a leader in their role / life.
With over 2 decades of my experience in Sales and People management skills, I use my creative skills to solve difficult and challenging problems with ease.
Developing people is my form of art, my way of creating things that didn’t exist before. Which is where I have build my COMPETTITVE EDGE , My true PASSION
Unfortunately – or may be fortunately – my last job stopped providing that wonderful feeling. Without it, work became very boring and monotonous.
To build my competitive advantage, I had asked myself which one thing that would bring the most joy back into my daily professional life – i.e. Inspiring People to move up in their career and become better leaders in their life.
Making My Own Path
After initially settling the recruitment part at HCN . I wanted to explore the moments that brought me not only the sense of accomplishment but also the feeling of doing things and that me to introduce
