Ruchira says that leaders need to think of new and innovative ways to provide their employees and coworkers with a sense of belonging.

Ruchira Chaudhary believes that leadership must be inclusive, and only a great coach can be a good leader. Companies succeed only when leaders invest in the future generation of leaders through coaching. Leadership today is more collaborative than prescriptive or authoritative. It is about asking the right questions rather than having all the answers. And above all, a good leader is compassionate, empathetic, and supportive. You must learn to trust people for them to trust you back.
Ruchira’s recent book – ‘Coaching – The Secret Code to Uncommon Leadership’ – illustrates how a leader can bring out the best in people by coaching them. She has proven that women are no less than anybody else and can succeed in whatever we do.
