MindTree celebrates the writing accomplishments of its Vice Chairman and Gardener
Bangalore, India and Warren, NJ; August 24, 2011:
MindTree Limited announced today that the company’s Gardener and Vice Chairman Subroto Bagchi has earned the distinction of being named India's best-selling business author with cumulative sales of his three books at well over 150,000 copies.
“Knowing that 150,000 copies of my books have been sold so far is a humbling feeling,” said Bagchi. “Reader interest in my kind of books is an indication of a different India in the making. The entrepreneur and the professional are beginning to define what it means to be an Indian. That is the reason the three books have been so successful, and I look forward to the release of my business book for the sixteen-year-old of today.”
Bagchi released his first book, The High Performance Entrepreneur, in 2006, followed by Go Kiss the World in 2008, and his current book, The Professional, published in 2009. The Professional defines what it means to be a professional in today’s world, and outlines the explicit and implicit code of conduct.
“On behalf of 10,000 MindTree Minds worldwide, I’d like to congratulate Subroto on this honor,” said MindTree’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Krishnakumar Natarajan. “Through his books, one gets great insight into Subroto’s unique approach to leadership development, and how through his Gardener role at MindTree, Subroto helps differentiate MindTree and prepares our top 100 leaders for the next 25+ years of their respective careers.”
In his role as Gardener, Bagchi spends one-on-one time with the Top100 leaders at MindTree on their “personal-professional” issues to expand leadership capacity and build readiness for taking MindTree into its next league of growth. In addition, Bagchi works at the grassroots by making himself available to MindTree’s 45 Communities of Practice that foster organizational learning, innovation and volunteerism within the organization.
Bagchi’s next book, I Did My MBA at 16, is scheduled to be published by Penguin India in 2012.
