Quought for the Day #27 – Naveen Lakkur

Naveen and I have known each other since 1992. We both have attended classes together, worked together professionally, participated in projects together. I have had the pleasure of watching Naveen grow to be an inspirational leader and am glad that I have met him. Read his personal story and be inspired.

Naveen has over 14 years of experience in Information Technology field, in the areas of Software Development (Application Development – Transactional Systems, MIS, EIS, etc.,) in India, USA, Malaysia & Middle-East.

He has a track record of 5 IT startup initiatives in his professional career and all the initiatives being successful. He has also gained experience from large companies such as Wipro Technologies and Digital GlobalSoft (merged with Hewlett Packard). Over time, he would have donned several roles and worn many hats:Software Engineer, Business Analyst, Project Manager, Program Manager, Head Technology Delivery, Vice-President.

My $.02: I agree that you have to work on some of your weaknesses but if you totally focus on “fixing” your weaknesses, you will run out of time to work on your strengths. Think about Naveen’s question and see if you need to make any changes in your life in this new year.
