Growth is a mindset rather than just the natural stage of the business life cycle and it is becoming ever more pertinent for business leaders to adopt a 'growth mindset' in the face of constant change.
In this short and informative session, Hari V. Krishnan, CEO of PropertyGuru will discuss how leaders can lean into fostering this mindset in their organisations to develop more innovative, collaborative and committed employees to set their businesses apart from others. He will also share how the role of technology, emphasis on talent, focus on customers experience and internal efficiency will help to develop a high growth organisation.
