Hey leader, what's your story?

Every story of great leadership is about embarking on a journey, carving a path and walking it.  Organisations today struggle to grow leaders who can truly lead the way.

Great leadership results from a high level of self-awareness, powerful communication using storytelling and truly engaging
with people.

At DustyPaths, we are on a mission to enable leaders to be highly purpose-driven. We are curious to learn about successes, failures and of the struggles to build performance. We seek opportunities to shape stories that make workplaces meaningful.

Founder DustyPaths

An offbeat journey

I got introduced to storytelling before storytelling became a thing we know today. My aha moment came during an official visit to Disneyland early in my career. I learnt what goes on behind the scenes and the elements that make such a splendid customer experience – what we know as magic. It was storytelling in action.

I became fascinated with storytelling and how it played out in business. I tapped into the principles of storytelling when I built a team and set up operations for the first teleconferencing company in India. And later, at WebEx and Cisco in customer experience, marketing, product development, and delivery roles.

As the world rapidly became more digital, human connections started to suffer. And its effects are felt in how businesses connect with employees and customers. 

I founded DustyPaths with a mission to make storytelling accessible and practical. I work with organisations to bring storytelling into their work.

I also enjoy photographing life, playing roles on stage, running long distances, and hiking mountains.

I’d love to hear your story.
