This in turn will motivate teams to delve into themselves and bring out their lesser-known selves.

Nikhil Sharma

Even though a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes the right words are just what you need to make it through the day, to inspire your team or to change your perspective.

Today’s Traveller: A major milestone that shaped you as a Leader?

Nikhil Sharma: The hospitality industry is a wonderful industry to be a part of and I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with various mentors who have been instrumental in helping to shape my career. Patu Keswani, who taught me the importance of looking at the business holistically stands out as one of many mentors that best supported me on my career path.

Today’s Traveller:   What is that one thing that you cannot miss?

Nikhil Sharma:  My biggest vice is consistently checking my phone. I struggle to digitally detach but it is a personal goal of mine to reduce my screen time and reconnect with those closest to me and my surroundings to ensure I stay present and at the moment as best I can.

Today’s Traveller:   What is your mantra of Power dressing?  

Nikhil Sharma:   The phrase ‘power dressing’ is the practice of dressing in a style intended to show that one holds an important position in the business.  Power dressing to me means feeling comfortable and feeling most like yourself. I believe that when you wear clothes you are comfortable and confident in, you feel powerful and your morale is higher.

Today’s Traveller:   What is the one thing that you have learnt during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Nikhil Sharma:   I have learnt a great number of lessons during the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe there is a greater appreciation for mother nature and it has taught us humility and humbleness. On a professional level, I have learnt to be more patient, to pace myself, and demonstrate perseverance in my day-to-day activities. My work at Wyndham has also taught me how to remain agile and adaptable.

Today’s Traveller:   Which non-professional activities give you energy and satisfaction.

Nikhil Sharma:   I have a passion for long-distance running and hope to one day run the New York City Marathon. I have also recently taken up cycling and yoga and in 2020 I co-authored a book ‘Rumi & Kabir Consulting’ with my friend Akbar, which has given me great joy.
