Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Mukesh Ambani on Monday after delivering his keynote address at the 45th annual general meeting (AGM) of RIL, listed out 10 tenets of building unique leadership capital. Apart from launching of 5G services in India by Diwali to announcing Giga factory for power electronics, RIL chairman, who has completed 20 years as chairman of Reliance, cited his experiences and suggested unique leadership capital for the company.
First: People Capital – Reliance’s greatest strength is our human assets, not just our financial assets. The greatest value creators are brains, not machines.
Second: Technology and Innovation Capital – In this age of exponential change, mastering latest technologies is not an option. It’s an imperative for survival and disruptive growth.
Third: Capability Capital – Reliance judges its leaders by their expertise to plan, execute, review and improve. Indeed, New India needs leaders whose capability must always exceed the complexity of the problem they are expected to solve.
Fourth: Achievement Capital – Reliance rewards and honours achievers who exceed expectations. Aiming low is not acceptable.
Fifth: Relationship Capital – We fully understand that people are not robots and money is not the sole motivation that drives them to deliver peak performance. Healthy inter-personal relations create happy organisations.
Sixth: Trust Capital – Reliance places highest value on trustworthy people. For organisations as well as individuals, there is no better way to earn respect than to be trustworthy.
Seventh: Co-operation Capital – This means 1+1 becomes 11 when people co-operate and teams collaborate. It’s an integral part of our SOP.
Eighth: Empathy Capital – The world is increasingly coming round to realise that powers of the heart are superior to powers of a cold rational mind. Compassionate Capitalism needs Compassionate Leaders.
Ninth: Integrity Capital – Honesty and uprightness are non-negotiable principles at Reliance.
Tenth: Community Engagement Capital- Lastly, we recognise that serving the community that supports and sustains us is our Corporate Moral Responsibility, not just a legal Corporate Social Responsibility.
In the conclusion, Ambani said, “I have always believed that the interests of an institution must always override those of any individual or family. Keeping this in mind, we will create a robust architecture for tomorrow’s Reliance to ensure that it remains a united, well-integrated and secure institution even as we develop our existing businesses and add new growth engines.
