When we earmarked Wednesdays for business and entrepreneurship on Vbuzz, I knew straightaway that I wanted Jeevan Sahadevan on the show. This wildly successful business coach and founder of Leverage Lab is all about transforming entrepreneurs lives through easy to understand and even easier to follow strategies. More than 50,000 people have benefitted from his business acumen through his programmes and the ones who follow his advice have reaped MILLIONS through his guidance. And you KNOW his methods reach deep when I catch team members in the control room surreptitiously scribbling notes as his interview goes on! Today’s interview marked the final one that we’ll be doing with Jeevan, but I have no doubt that his insightful lessons on achieving business success will live on :)
We also spoke to Sashe Kanapathi, who is the Head of Digital Learning at Leaderonomics, one of Malaysia’s go-to names for leadership development PLUS they are a social enterprise to boot! A former IT professional who eschewed tech for talent development, Sashe is a firm believer in life long learning. We quoted a study to him that stated that professionals these days only have an average of 20 minutes per day to set aside for learning, outside of their busy schedules, and asked how they could become more effective leaders when time was so scarce. Sashe smiled and challenged the study... ‘Actually, you have 24 hours a day minus sleeping time. Why wouldn’t you dedicate every waking moment you have to improving yourself and learning?’, he parried.
Well played, sir. Well played indeed :)
