👉It was quite inspiring to meet the legendary Anil Kumble during one event. I am always inspired by leaders 🧑💼and honest celebrities 👑 like him, which keeps me going. His perseverance and focus is one quality that inspires me a lot.
Everyone knows this fantabulous ✨cricketer, also known by his nickname Jumbo, holds the record of bowling 40,850 balls in the entire Test career, which is the highest for an Indian and second-highest overall, and he is also one of six bowlers to take 900+ (956 to be precise) wickets in his entire career. He holds several other records, awards, and honors far beyond one’s imagination.
▶️ He once said that no one should tell from your body language, whether you are at “50 for 5” or “200 for no loss”. And I think the same applies to leaders in whatever field you are.
▶️Similarly, among several rituals for preparation, which included training properly, eating right, and sleeping well, “visualization”, he said, was key. A day before the match, I would think of each batsman of the opposing team, one at a time, and visualize how I was going to get them out. I would picture the fielder’s positions, my bowling technique, the strategy I would use,”
The same applies to leaders to visualize the upcoming situation and define the strategy to make it 💫successful.

When I read the following message in my LinkedIn Inbox on Monday morning regarding my book, it literally made my (Mon) day 🤩 and a week. It was candid feedback 😊 from Y Gopi Rajendra about my book.
All people who have read the book have given positive feedback. That really gives me a good sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. When the book is sold with no marketing, you really feel good. The icing on the cake is when you receive such feedback, including several 5-star reviews on Amazon.
I wanted to say a special thanks 🙏to you people in my network, like Gopi, who took the time to write back to me to give candid feedback. I appreciate your time and efforts in writing me a few sentences.

I had the distinct privilege of conducting mock interviews for the final semester students of the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. 🧑🏫
Engaging in this endeavor proved to be a significant and gratifying experience, as I devoted my Saturday to actively participate in shaping the trajectory of prospective trailblazers while also giving back to our society. Each student was having an exceptionally commendable resume, a fact that did not go unnoticed. I would have dreamt of such resumes during my college days.
The opportunity to engage with the most exceptional young minds in disciplines such as chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, and MTech was nothing less than an enriching experience. During these interactions and feedback sessions, I had the privilege to share insights gained from an employer’s perspective, focusing on strategies for effective presentation during real-world interviews.
I hold a profound sense of gratitude for the chance to provide guidance to these ambitious IITians, aiding them in their meticulous career preparations.
It was a pleasure 😊 conducting another session at CRISIL Limited about “Introduction to PMP Certification”.
In my first session (Introduction to Project Management) at CRISIL, around 200+ CRISILtes joined. The session was well-received. However, due to the paucity of time, we could not cover details about how to start the journey toward PMP certification.
In this follow-up session, I covered about nuances of PMP certification, starting from PMI membership, required training, education, experiences, application, exam fees, etc. Only serious PMs joined the session and got good in-depth knowledge about PMP certification.
Already few managers have either undergone formal training or planning to take up PMP training to become PMP-certified project managers.
It’s my way of giving back to the society!!!!
🤩 It was awesome to learn that 510 professionals/learners 🧑🏼🤝🧑🧑🤝🧑🧑🏼🤝🧑 tuned in from across the globe for my session on “Introduction to Project Management” last Saturday morning.
Initially, I thought that 2 hours will become boring for participants. But almost the full audience was present throughout the duration and still there was no end to queries.
Not only that, we received excellent feedback from 171 participants, with 99% quoting it as an excellent session. And asked for more. The feedback snapshot is in the comments.
Can’t ask more!!!! Thanks, Ayush Malaviya, for the opportunity.
Get in touch with me for any advice in case if you want to upskill your project management skills.
My published book ‘Supercharge your project Management Skills’ also gives a good idea to aspiring and novice PMs, startup founders, and seasoned managers on how to handle some practical but tricky situations not documented anywhere else.

📢It was my pleasure to deliver a talk at Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI)‘s Profiesta event over the weekend, which is the Annual Technical Festival Organized By Project Management Students of VJTI.
My topic for the session was ‘Adaptability of PM in changing business environments’. M.Tech Students enthusiastically attended it, and was well-received. I am always amazed by the curiosity and energy of young minds.
