1. Who, according to you, is a corporate guru? A corporate guru is an industry professional with experience across multiple industries and functions and is recognized as a living institution of ‘knowledge in action’. In today’s rapidly changing environments there is an emergent need for ‘practitioner professors’ to assist in transforming organizations by continually reinventing themselves, to become conscious and learning organizations and simultaneously training and developing socially conscious professionals with relevant and appropriate mix of theory and practice. They, in my opinion, are true corporate gurus.
