One morning a team member walked into my open office, “Rajesh, I need 5 minutes to discuss something.” “Discuss” and “Something,” meaning the joy in seeking to understand the unknown, a yearning to unravel what and why. I ushered Shahid in and we got talking. He wanted to write a book on a technical subject, about which he was passionately curious about. All ears, I listened and we agreed that it addressed his deep inner belief to learn and explore this topic, and that I would happily support some flexible work hours. A year later, Shahid’s book – Roaming in Wireless Networks–was published by McGraw Hill, and continues to sell for USD 116/-; he is officially a guru in the industry. The book turned out to be a strong reference book on the subject, also helped our business as his voice earned him a seat at every table, sometimes even allowing for him to chair said meetings!
That being said, let’s dive deeper into some of these keys aspects and characteristics in order to better understand our learning/teaching model as well as the type of people we look to work with within the business.
