Today’s Traveller: How do you keep up your team’s morale?

Jaidev Dutta: Building team morale and motivation is a continuous process and essential for the survival of any business. More so for our business, as it is a very people centric business.

Team morale-building requires a focussed and sincere effort from a leader to create the highest levels of engagement both on a professional and personal front. An engaged team is a committed and performance-oriented team because of a strong sense of belonging and ownership of the organization.

If I have to highlight one major milestone that has a deep impact on my leadership which shaped me as a stronger, better human being and a professional – it would be the learnings from the Covid-19, which shaped my handling of the pandemic situation over the last fourteen months. I learned how strong resilience and innovative strategic thinking can keep our business afloat and sustainable.
