“The first thing that comes in my mind is that we have people managing people, so what is even more important is that we have to have the right people to manage other people. So, which should be the profile of a good people’s manager? In my opinion the profile should be founded upon two main pillars. The first pillar is strong analytical thought. The second pillar is strong human relations. Appropriate soft skills play an important role in a successful career as well as during social interactions in the society." – Rajesh Malaviya, Co - Founder, Growing Minds
