From the delivery of pizza to his office to the 50 women in the world on the business list “he met Manisha Girotra

Become a connoisseur of a person’s history, and thus dominate the transactions that both entities develop. And this feature also extends to their interaction as a female leader. She found herself on the road. Manisha Girotra When our time coincides with the Indian business ecosystem in its most liquid state, while it is disturbed to accommodate people. Play big and small, a feature that will determine that the winners of this generation will know how to earn a lot of money, even when they earn a lot of money. While Manisha’s professional prowess never ceased to be the center of attention, our conversation was more direct. This is the story, not only about their laurels, but also about their conversations: A middle class The foundation of Manisha Fortysix is ??a father of five who he is constantly looking for his excellence, and a home where all the women have gone to work without any inconvenience about it. “It was perfectly normal, after obtaining a postgraduate degree from the Delhi School of Economics, she was one of the only 50 people who hired the new Grindlays Bank, and was absorbed into the investment banking division. DSE gold medalist, I think In’m will change the world economic cycle, but my first job is to make stock reports for companies, I have to Register if they have 2,000 pencils, 200 packages, 30 pens Fans, she counts, her second concert at Grindlays is like breaking up, and in addition to the reports of actions, sometimes she also acts as a pizza delivery boy, once again, she would not have changed for anything in the world. of the business and they want you to see what it takes to build a business, and you stay there until people create more trust around you? “She said, hanging there, she said, are the magic words. For Manisha, the relationship between sexes in education remains intact “by itself in DSE, after about 40% of women, once out of college, women choose quality roles.” nourish them, how to teach or breastfeed. Some women I know will fall out of the car with their marriage, their husbands will leave, etc. It’s very difficult. “People always think,” Who is this strange creature? “And suppose I were The Secretary,” he recalls, adding, “People will not take it seriously.” There are intricate conversations among women about mergers, acquisitions and fundraising. Her job is to take her between Delhi and London, and she has good days and bad days. He will not shake my hand and give me a name, he will ask me questions about the dilemma when I get married … Say it, ‘I’m not here to talk about that!’ Manisha is married at 24 hours. But the hours are long It’s strange for her husband, Sanjay Agarwal, today, director of the corporate finance firm at Deutsche Bank, India. She was even sent to Mumbai for a while, while her husband’s job In Delhi, nobody really has faith in the concept of long-distance marriage, but that would mean going through a promotion. “So Sanjay urged me to do so? So, Manisha was stranded for another year in Mumbai, and a few more years in Grindlays, which opened up floods for her time at UBS, again in the private banking sector. This will continue to be her longest time, where He will live 20 years in his life. When I was 33 years old, Manisha went up to become CEO of UBS.In addition to my nutrition, where even the second classified in the class is called to learn deeply, I feel that I have I reached this level also because I am consistent, I build relationships And I continue, while never resting, she said, about climbing Manisha with her daughter Tara Double threat major event in her life coincided with another equally significant start – the birth of her daughter, Tara. However, Manisha welcomed this delightful storm, well-prepared and with open arms The initial grind and 20-hour days would have made raising a child impossible, but I had her 10 years into my career, when there was more certainty to my days, she says. And yet, in her entire professional life of 25 years, that was easily the most challenging time, she admits. The maternity leave then was only three months. After month four, my daughter would get ready and pack up for work with me, and I would tuck her away in a hotel next to the office, and all day I’d juggle nursing her and work, she remembers.At the time, crèches were as unheard of as they were considered an unnecessary expenditure – but subsequently, Manisha initiated the conversation and spearheaded their construction at all the companies she came to work at. And gradually, at work and at home, she had built a support system so that people would help and pitch in, which, she says, is the sole reason she survived the grind of being a ‘momporate’ leader.The machine delivered, but that is not to say that it wasn’t creaky. Manisha’s decisions were laden with her own guilt, and then some from family members who pitched in, but somewhat grudgingly and judgingly. My mother-in-law supported me working, but because our mums were such good homemakers, they expected us to ace both! I once came back after cracking an $18-20-billion deal to my daughter who had to take some puppets to school the next day. My mom made me make those puppets from 3 -7 am arguing that I simply had to do it; it was my job. I asked her, ‘what about Sanjay?’ and she simply went, ‘Sanjay cann’t do all this. Poor guy, heare also tired.’ As if In’d just breezed my way back home, and that jetlag doesnn’t affect women, she says with delectable sarcasm.At times like that, when your daughter is running a temperature but you have to catch that plane to New York, the guilt, she says, is heart-wrenching. But one must learn to reconcile it. Hereare the truth “ it’s all in your mind. If the baby has someone caring for them, like your mother or any other nurturing figure, they’ll be just fine! Itare really your head that you need to sort out- tell yourself that your work actually makes you a better mom, just like providing for their family makes a man a better dad, Manisha says. The familyThe plungeAfter 20 years of dedicated service, Manisha left UBS to help her ex-boss set up Moelis. At that time, a lot of large banks were in turmoil given the sub-prime issue, and she had a good working relationship with him. So, she took this opportunity. Sceptics emerged, as UBS was an established name, but Moelis’ Indian arm was just a debutant. But, I felt like I had to reinvent myself, and I was ready to take this on, she says.She was invigorated, and yet, torn. After all, in her 20 years at UBS, the offers never did stop pouring in, but Manisha didn’t bat an eyelid. Making job shifts is even more difficult for women, she feels. As women, you tend to get fiercely loyal to your employers – because our jobs and companies become extensions of our lives, she says.She was starting from ground zero. It was her, a secretary and a computer, after heading an organisation of 15,000 people. When we set up Moelis, it was terribly difficult times in the economy; there was a market slowdown, which was actually conducive for us as it bought us more time to find our feet, she recalls.On top, and not alone this timeIn the post-Moelis era of her career in financial services, women weren’t than uncommon a sight. The new sectors are so programmed to women- whether itare IT, journalism, banking, retail, these are skewed towards women as employees, which is great, because we have higher EQ as well as IQ. But, structurally, the world is not used to women being on top. So, youn’re still dealing with biases in your own home “ where you struggle to find acceptance that you are as much of a breadwinner as a man, Manisha notes.She feels that our rapidly evolving economy is edging toward being a services economy, and in that bid, women make for better players, because women are inherently empathetic. So, itare always a more pleasant experience dealing with a woman. I hope that organisations understand that we do not need women to become clones of their male counterparts and emulate their qualities. Organisations need to see value in letting women be themselves, retain their core qualities, become leaders for those qualities and receive respect for what they are, she explains.Besides, putting women on top will have a trickle-down effect, according to her. Women are far more comfortable talking about a lot more issues — bringing work to home, maternity, paternity etc. Men find it immensely hard to say .
