Excellence in Leadership

Sonie Kalidindi will tell you the best advice she ever received came to her from her father. “My dad was a college professor and the reason I got into computer science. When I was a kid, he brought computers to the local university where we lived in India, and then to my school. The technology was of course very interesting, but my dad’s guidance was always to approach technology with a management lens or a problem-solving focus. That guidance stuck with me, and it’s been helpful in all phases of my career, but especially in my consulting career. I’ve made it a habit to ask questions like ‘why’ and ‘what for’ to understand the business problem we are trying to solve. This approach has helped me bring siloed teams together, get to the root of the problem, and create solutions that are data-driven and address the challenges at hand.”
