“[That] my leadership purpose aligned with the organization’s purpose […] created an energy and enthusiasm within me,” says Ravi Bhusate, Partner, in this episode of Fearless Thinkers. Ravi and Rick Cheatham, CMO, explore the personal motivations that underpin exceptional leadership.
Rick Cheatham: I want to know more about what you mean by purposeful leadership. But before we do that, I know that you had quite a journey in getting here in the first place, so I think it might be good for our audience to hear a little bit about your background or your story before we start getting into the meat of the conversation.
Ravi Bhusate: Let me take you back to my childhood. The first seven years of my life were wonderful, part of a warm, loving family. Shortly after my eighth birthday, my mother was taken ill to hospital and I couldn’t bear to be separated from her, so I visited her every weekend to keep her company holding her hands. I remember a few months in I visited her and she was different.
She was silent, stared at me and smiled like mothers do, and then what seemed like an eternity. She said, I want you to make me a promise when you grow up. Promise me you’ll always be like this. I was totally confused. What was she asking? So I pretended to understand. Nodded, smiled, squeezed her hand tightly.
