Leadership by CMD LaLiT Suri Hospitality Group

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Interview with The LaLiT Suri Hospitality Group CMD Jyotsna Suri printed in Hindustan Times – December 26, 2013.

 

A leader must be unbiased and patient

Dr. Jyotsna Suri, Chairperson and Managing Director, The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group, has been associated with the group since its inception in 1987. Ever since taking over as chairman and managing director in 2006, Suri has been the driving force of the group’s operations across India. She spoke to HT on a range of leadership issues. Excerpts:
How do you define a leader? A leader must have a clear vision and the ability to lead his/her team towards achieving it. He/she should be able to overcome adversities and guide the organisation through bad times. What are the three most important traits of a leader? A leader must be unbiased, patient and should possess people management skills. As a leader of your group, how do you cultivate leaders? By recognising capabilities and delegating responsibilities accordingly.
Can a manager become a leader? Leadership is inherent. However, it can be honed over a period of time. For a manager to become a leader, he/she should give equal opportunity to all; be patient and unbiased and recognise and nurture the strengths of team members as well as help overcome their weaknesses. What leader is in the a privately-promoted role of a professional and a government-owned company? Whether it is a privately-promoted or a government-owned company, the role of a leader remains the same — to have a clear vision and lead the team to achieve that vision. Since September 2008, the world has seen a number of crises. What is the role of a leader in these times? The role of a leader is to keep the morale of the employees high always, particularly during critical times and steer the organisation out of the crisis. What has been your biggest leadership challenge? My biggest challenge was to give our brand a very strong and distinct identity. On November 19, 2008, I charted a brand change for the company. All luxury hotels now fly “The Lalit” flag while the mid-segment Hotels are branded as “The Lalit Traveller”, under The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group. Leaders have to often carry the cross of other’s wrongdoings and inefficiencies. What role can good leadership play to counterbalance this image? A strong and successful leader should be able to take up challenges and guide his team irrespective of the wrongdoings and inefficiencies of others. What is your one-line leadership mantra?
Never give in. Who are the leaders who have inspired you? Mahatma Gandhi — a man who rose to become a force that singlehandedly changed the history of India. Aung San Suu Kyi – a frail yet mentally-strong woman who relentlessly fought for what she believed in. Who is a leader in your industry whom you respect? There is something to learn from each person I come across. What is the biggest leadership lesson that you have learnt? To stand for what you believe in, fearlessly. Also, leaders must give back to the society. As a hotelier, I believe in “developing destinations”, not just hotels. It is the people at the destinations that account for the success of the group’s hotels and therefore our initiatives involve the local population, their handicrafts, culture, food, thereby giving them training and employment to boost the economic environment. What is the best leadership decision that you have taken? Rebranding the chain and initiating the “developing destinations” concept. What has been your worst leadership decision? Out of thousands of decisions that one takes, there will be few which may not prove to be the best. However, I have no regrets.

Indian Food Freak reviews Baluchi, The Lalit Ashok, Bangalore

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Is there a cuisine that always makes you wonder, how did they do that? For me it has always been the cuisine of the North West Frontier. There is something rustic, robust and rich all in one about the dishes that make me go back to them over and over again. For the restaurant week preview, I got an opportunity to visit The Lalit Ashok’s celebrated restaurant Baluchi.

Theatre Konnections ‘ Whats up with Indian men?’ | The LaLiT Ashok, Bangalore

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Taste and smell, stir up different emotions which remain etched in our memory for long. Exploring the visceral connection between food and theatre, The Lalit Ashok brings to you the fifth edition of Theater Konnection on September 7th, 2013.

 

Speaking prior to the event, Amit Samson, General Manager, The Lalit Ashok said, “We believe that good food not only enhances the overall experience of the performance by virtue of its taste, it also helps build the cultural context.” To delight the patrons of Theater Konnection, Chef Subodh Goyal has handpicked the selections for the prix fixe menu which include canapés, tandoori salmon tikka with basil, zucchini & cheese samboussek and an assortment of sushi wraps.

 

It’s a perfect set-up for the discerning food lover who has an artistic bent of mind, as the evening offers the best both worlds – food and theatre. An exquisite buffet spread of Indian, Continental and Pan-Asian cuisines is being coupled with a fun, romantic play on a girl trying to find love in the hybridized Indian social milieu. The play is infused with music and slam poetry which will keep you glued to your seats.

 

Gourmet Graze is by Chef Subodh Goyal & The Stage by Underdog Entertainment.

 

About the Play:

 

The makers of love, sex and mocha present “what’s up with these Indian men”, which is a quirky and fun take on a girl’s journey of trying to find love in the confused, urban Indian society. It brings to the fore the numerous male stereotypes that exist in our society today. Right from the pretentious metro-sexual type to the penny saving Maddu boy to the dowry mongering Reddy boy, the play exposes each one of them in a comical fashion.
