Q1. Share your journey at G-Cube with us?
If I have to answer it in one word – it has been phenomenal. I have had the best and the most challenging times here and learned so much. G-Cube has offered me multiple opportunities to grow as an individual and much ahead in the game vis-à-vis my peers from previous organizations.
Q2. What challenges were faced by you while working with G-Cube and how you overcome them?
Well, many! But there wasn’t even one challenge that could beat us. To cite an instance, when I began focusing on key accounts, there was a lot of mind shift needed towards focusing on industry expertise, resource optimization, critical reports, and more. The best part was that all the teams welcomed the new energy and it proved great for G-Cube.
Q3. Tell us about a time when things didn’t go the way you wanted– like a new Business /new Client/Promotion you wanted and didn’t get, or a project that didn’t turn out how you had hoped?
I cannot forget the Lufthansa bid we won. It would have been the largest in history then. All involved had put in their best, like every ounce of blood and brain, and it didn’t turn out in our favor. There were learning sessions taken, and the entire experience prepared us very well for similar opportunities in the future, which we have won many now.
Q4. Who is your role model, and why?
I don’t have a constant role model. I follow many inspiring personalities and try to implement their critical traits in my life. However, the most inspiring genre is working mothers. For me, every woman who has brought in a new life in this world and did not compromise on their career and financial goals is a role model to me. I salute each one of them!
Q5. How do you maintain work-life balance and what do you work towards in your free time?
I am not very good at maintaining a work-life balance during weekdays but compensate it all on the weekends. Unless I am traveling, my weekends are for my family. During my free time, I love to read. These days I go through stuff like healthy foods for a toddler, how to make them eat, and more.
Q6. What are you passionate about?
My daughter – Ava. Apple of my eye!
Q7. If you could be anyone else, who would it be?
I want to be that apple which fell on Newton’s head. The easiest way to get so famous and known!
Q8. A day in G-Cube when you felt delighted?
I am a person who gets delighted easily, so there are umpteen. I find happiness in small things.
Q9. What advice would you give to the fellow G-Cubians?
The world outside G-Cube is full of opportunities, but one thing I can guarantee is that you may not find another organization with so much flexibility and openness to new ideas.
So, if there is anything you recommend, or want to discuss, call it out. We are all ears! All the best!
