Over the few years our team size in Vishwak has grown from less than 50 to over 150 now. This means as the Chairman of the organization I don’t get to meet every team member individually, have a chat with them and get to know them better. So few months we experimented with a program titled “Coffee with Venkat”, obviously inspired by the TV talk show by a similar name. This is a bi-monthly event normally held on the first & Third Saturday’s of a month. A few randomly selected team members spend an hour over coffee to have an informal chat with me. Only one condition – no work related topics. I have done over half-a-dozen of this programs so far, and mostly the topics they choose to talk are around their aspirations, ambitions, school/college days and future plans. Every time after the program I feel extremely energized and inspired. I highly recommend this to every business or organization heads.
