Do leaders always need to always have their act together? Unpacking this question with us today is Manjot Kaur, who tells us about her year as the executive director at Mentor Me India, an organisation providing mentorship to children from low-income communities. Manjot shares how her authoritative leadership style left her team feeling stressed, tired, and unwilling to cooperate with her. Ultimately, her inability to engage constructively with team members contributed to the organisation’s failure to meet its objectives. Manjot Kaur is an independent consultant based in Mumbai. She works in healthcare, mainly on projects related to tuberculosis, HIV, and non-communicable diseases. Her areas of interest and expertise are public–private partnerships, community empowerment, and healthcare system strengthening. Manjot is a medical doctor by training and has an MBA in finance and strategy from the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. Read more: Read Manjot’s story on Failure Files.
