Ritu G. Mehrish is a woman on a mission to humanize leadership. She provides a refreshing and unique angle in presenting the human side of leadership by talking about the challenges, dilemmas and setbacks of leaders in their leadership journey. She believes leaders don’t have to be superheroes, they don’t have to try to be perfect all the time.
Almost all leaders go through a phase in their career where they feel demotivated, uninspired, lost and not on top of their game. This could be triggered by various internal and external reasons like role fatigue, ineffective supervisor, misalignment of personal vs organizational goals, resistance to change, external and personal factors and so on. If this phase is not addressed it has a negative impact on the leader, the team and the organization. Ritu has given a name to this phase – Leader’s Block.
