For a business to be successful, one needs to have an intense vision and foresight to master the art of doing business, especially in a country like India. The growth of the Indian economy can be accredited to the famous visionary business leaders possessing Transformational Leadership skills, who contribute to most of the country’s GDP.
Visionary leaders such as Sanjiv Bajaj and Mukesh Ambani have revamped the face of Indian business and etched a place in the global business market. These famous corporate leaders have transformed the industry. Here is a list of the three top greatest visionary leaders in business who understand the power of digitisation and technology to streamline operations and enhance customer experiences while allowing their employees to achieve their full potential with ease.
The quintessential business tycoon- Mukesh Ambani, the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited- was ranked the no. 1 businessman of India based on the 2019 report of Indian billionaires. His business acumen made him the wealthiest corporate leader in 2019.
Although he inherited the business from his father Dhirubhai Ambani, his perseverance and zeal made the company stronger and richer every day. While building on his father’s foundational enterprise of oil and gas, he ventured into consumer-facing businesses such as retail and telecom, and today, he has become a name to reckon with in those fields.
Along with being the richest business magnate of the country, he also runs the Reliance Foundation- founded by Dhirubhai Ambani- which promotes sustainable socio-economic growth in India. He is a true visionary leader as he has emerged to be the face of Indian businesses in the global business platform.
A visionary leader, Sanjiv Bajaj has mastered the art of multi-tasking and the use of new technology to do business. Currently posted as the Chairman and Managing Director of Bajaj Finserv, this famous financial leader guarantees operational excellence and makes life easy for the end consumer by leveraging digitisation.
His vision for his enterprise and his unmatched leadership skills is what made Bajaj Allianz General Insurance the second-most profitable insurance corporation in India. He has been awarded several prestigious accolades including India Today's 50 Most Powerful People, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2017, Financial Express– Banker of the Year 2019, and many more.
A born leader, Ratan Naval Tata’s grit and willpower coupled with his keen planning and foresight led him to make the Tata Group one of the leading businesses not only in India but on the global map. He spent over two decades taking the Tata Group to where it is today along with being the recipient of the prestigious Padma Vibhushan (2008) and Padma Bhushan (2010) for his noteworthy industry and trade contributions.
He is a businessman who understands the keen sentiments driving human consumption. From introducing ‘the people’s car' - Tata Nano to making significant global acquisitions and visiting the families of 80 Taj employees killed during the 26/11 attacks, the same is evident from his actions.
His philanthropic endeavors are endless as he is the Chairman of the Tata Trusts- one of the oldest foundations in India- that works in 170 districts across 17 states and has partnered with 450 organisations for various causes such as education, health, and gender inequality.
