It's simple. Organizations want and need outstanding service providers who are capable of also being "trusted advisors." In today's borderless global marketplace, software engineers who can code with zero errors and 100% quality are not as desirable as they used to be. They need to demonstrate a broader worldview: the ability to lead cross-cultural teams and management skills of a highest order are some of the key traits that are required to succeed as a global leader capable of engaging customers, associates, investors in a manner that lends a competitive advantage. Our journey will cover the leadership steps and traits necessary for software engineers to transition from individual contributors to global leaders. Sharing insights from Satyam leaders and Satyam customers, combined with the research collected during the writing of his book, "leadership without borders," this presentation will identify the behaviors, acumen, and worldview required to succeed in a world without borders. In addition, this keynote will provide examples and advice on how to transition to a trusted advisor, and how to build partnerships where relationships go beyond 'project mindset'.
