Top 5 Interviews & Interactions of 2012
I have been running a Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam (The World is a Family in Sanskrit) Interview series on my Blog for past 2 years and have interviewed more than 50 people in the series from all parts of the world. It has given me a wonderful opportunity to interact with thought leaders, pioneers and other great professionals from across the world. These people have either emerged (or fast emerging) as Global Leaders and have Enlarged, Excelled and Evolved into Global Personal Brands too.
They are interesting role models for those who want to become global leaders. These interviews will give you interesting insights about global mindsets and how spirituality has guided most of these professionals in deeply passionate journeys with respect for all religions, cultures and nations.

Dr Amit-How do you facilitate change at an individual level?

Lucie Newcomb-Interview with the Global Leadership Guru
Dr Amit Nagpal-How do you help clients in creating new products?
